I know, this question got asked multiple times but I haven't really found a sufficient answer, so I wanna open another thread about it :)
I'm planing on buying a new camera exclusively for photogrammetry and looking for recommendations. The main purpose is to capture smaller automotive/technical parts in a controller environment (indoor, tripod, good light, scanning spray on object, etc). Most parts will probably be somewhere around 30mm to 1000mm.
I have a total budget of $1500-$2000 and was hoping to get a good camera (body only) for about $1000-$1500 and a lens for $500-$1000.
Looking at cameras, the Nikon D750 and Sony A7ii are currently on sale for $1000 which would fit well in my budget. The Nikon has the advantage of a bigger selection of lenses, the Sony would be mirrorless
Which one (or which alternative) would be recommended for the things I want to scan?
I'm still a bit confused about lenses but from what I read, a 35mm/f1.8 would be a good option!? Any thoughts on the lens? Especially for the parts I want to capture?
Also, I came across macro lenses? Is this something I should consider as an additional lens to capture very small details on parts?
What I have learned so from previous posts:
- mirrorless camera might have an advantage over a classic DSLR due to no "mechanical shock" when it tiggers.
- DX camera has a better dof than a full frame but FX has less noise
- Classic DSLR's have a bigger/cheaper selection of lenses to choose from
I hope someone can help me bit with choosing the right gear to start with :)
