Conclusion: Which is the best camera for Food Photography?
In the words of one of my favourite photographers, Chase Jarvis, the best camera is the one on you!
Now don't get me wrong, it's probably unfair to compare Canon's 5D Mark IV with any of these phones because it's definitely going to win in terms of everything, except size and price!
The point I am trying to make here is, Photography is about YOU "The Photographer", your vision, skill set and creativity. Great gear will definitely get you closer to where you want to go, but if you can't drive a car, buying a Porsche is not going to make you a better driver.
My personal advice is to master light & composition with whichever camera you have before you decide to upgrade.
You should also consider:
- Needs in term of camera size and weight (DSLR vs. Mirrorless vs. Phone)
- Use of Photos (Print vs. Web)
- Whether you are starting a career in Food Photography or not.
