Interesting article on The Verge about Peter Belanger and how he uses his 5D to shoot Apple product photos. He does some amazing stuff with lighting to get his creative results. Here's the link:

"As for gear, Belanger said his "go-to camera" right now is Canon's 5D Mark III fitted with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. He touts the zoom lens' shallow depth of field when wide open, a plus for his brand of product portraiture work."

Now that I think of it, surprising that they don't use computer-generated renderings.

I'm even more surprised he's not using a macro lens for some of the products like the iPhone and smaller like the iPod shuffle.

It would be lovely if people read the articles instead of posting beforehand.
I saw this on macrumors, and the article was badly written as it seemed as if he used it for his product images.
But no worries, I shall not judge your actions.

Here's a lovely quote from the Verge article:
"In the studio I shoot with a Phase One digital back with a Sinar X view camera, and Phase One 645 camera system."

The 5D3 is his go-to camera, not the one he uses for Apple's products.
Have a lovely day.

I'm even more surprised he's not using a macro lens for some of the products like the iPhone and smaller like the iPod shuffle.

He's using Large format cameras for studio shots, canon 5d3 for handhold... In the article he shoots in studio a Sinar View camera with a phase 1 digital back... 5d3 is his regular go to camera for everything handheld.  View cameras extend the bellows you voila, a macro lens
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.
