    Nikon Z5 for low-light product photography?

    Update: I decided to try the Nikon Z5 from a local shop so I could get back to shooting quickly (hoping to launch my site next week). So far I like it. Today I shot with heavily overcast skies (something I usually avoid) and it actually came out not bad! Supplemented natural light with a...

    Nikon Z5 for low-light product photography?

    My secondary use is filming my husband's music concerts in low-light settings. Baring in mind that one device can't do everything perfectly though! My priority is product photography.

    Thanks for the extra tips, ac12! I do get better results with slower shutter speed, I will give the tripod a shot. This makes sense in terms of lenses needed for each situation. I am mostly happy with the color from the D60. I do track weather and time of day to find when the most natural...

    Nikon Z5 for low-light product photography?

    Hello, I was looking to purchase a strong yet basic beginner-intermediate level DSLR for product photography. Today I went to a local shop and was very disappointed in what was sold to me (A mirrorless Canon M50 EOS Mark II)- I felt it was a step backward instead of forward. I am used to...
