>making no mention that he wanted it developed as e6
But you shouldn't *have* to mention that. It's the correct process, when you want it developed it's assumed that you want the correct process unless you mention otherwise.
Just as when you want your oil changed, it's assumed you want the correct oil type, not just the contents of the oil tank changed to whatever liquid.

The lab is totally inept if they didn't realise it was E-6 film and either not accept it or give the guy the option to crossprocess it. Cross processing without telling (or even realising it) shows complete lack of professionalism, even more so when they refused the refund.

Alternate analogy: it’s the future and you work at a gas station. 90% who come in have electric cars and you know how to deal with it, but like 10% of the people who come in have reall old cars and are gas for hards so you keep a gas pump around to deal with them. Some dude comes in with their car and asks you to fuel them up and it’s clearly an old car and not electric, so you pour gas in the hole in the tank. And then they’re pissed off at you for filling their steam engine with gasoline instead of water.

I live in the city of St. Louis, and for the entire city there’s basically one business left that processes film that’s not just a c41 minilab. When I go there with e6, they’re always surprised and impressed because usually they haven’t seen a roll of e6 in weeks or months, and it always takes them a long ass time to process it because they need to collect enough e6 for it to be economical. Everywhere else, you’re lucky if they do C41

So if the lab is not the very best lab remaining in their metropolitan area, most likely they have no idea what e6 is because it’s never come up before—anyone who regularly shoots e6 is someone who knows to ask first and knows that very few labs do it anymore.

Could pushing (colour) 800 iso to 1600 work or will it just turn into a mess? I would love to try some fuji natura 1600 but it's getting a bit pricey and was wondering if there is any alternative left.

Serious question. Are they even making any money? What you reckon, how long do they have?

So far I've seen Panasonic implying that it will be more like a FF GH5, ie a video camera first and foremost. That's a slightly different market than Z7, aimed more to compete with Sony's cameras.

Sigma uses it on their cameras so they will likely have PDAF on their L-mount one.

A very gimped version that is actually super slow and waits for the Contrast AF.
Sigma's AF is worth nothing.

>Although it has on-sensor phase detection elements, these are used as part of a hybrid system and there's a very apparent contrast-detection process that significantly slows the overall focusing process.

It won't change a thing in the sports shooter market, but I can see PJs wanting to trade some CAF performance for better video specs. Panasonic will have to be on top of the lens game for that to happen though.

The D750's AF is pretty much night and day compared to the D610's.
>>
>>3405881
Yes,exactly.
I can't justify buying it ,but it's possible that there's something I've missed.Maybe all the bad is exaggerated and is not relevant to someone who wants to casually shoot stills.
Reading about it is not enough, that's why I wanted to ask people who used it, directly.
Clearly the camera has downsides: build quality is meh,has bad batteries,lenses are not cheap,some don't like ergo,etc but again, if someone bought it and likes at least something about it that's what I would like to hear.

It can adapt all kinds of cheap lenses and should be okay for manual shooting,samyang are making okayish pancakes now so some these should be affordable.
Maybe upgrading to a7 III later would be a decent option.I don't know that's why I'm asking.


>>3405881
I would, but for around $500 the first a7 is probably the best full frame I can get.
>>
>>3405893
How casually? What sort of things do you shoot?
>>
>>3405897
I would use it to shoot every day things and for travel I guess,maybe at some point I will try out street but not without a good af lens.
I probably would mostly use it to shoot skies.
All I care about is decent IQ/color.And if handling is not worse than on a modern entry level Nikon it's all I need.

masks, lots of them. (like I mentioned before btw >>3405522 ). Pic related.
I think I wont do color wor in C1 again. It took me hours (literally) to draw all those masks. In photoshop I have more options to make masks, and make them more easily and more accurate. If someone knows a good plugin to get color wheels in PS like in C1 feel free to share a name.

here's the 1 tip that will make your photography better, instantly:

Do Not Shoot In Manual If You Have No Idea What You Are Doing

the exposure is all over the place on these, stick to P or Av mode until you understand how your camera works
>>
As a whole- underexposed and too much negative space as a result of being unable to pick a subject

>>3405533
Underexposed. I feel like you wanted a pretty cityscape and happened to see another photographer and forgot to pick a subject- hence the weird middle-ground aperture where your background isn't in focus but isn't bokeh'd to give you a subject, hence it's a fairly busy mess with bad light
>>3405534
Your subject is the people at the bottom so you've got the light in the wrong place (instead, the brightest part of the image is the top fraction which is but a tiny part of the frame). Frame out and give me more leading space at the bottom too, cutting legs and feet is never cool. Also wait til you have less of a busy mess of people. I don't need to see more than 2 people in a cool formation to make something pretty, or wait for a crowd if you're going for a crowd
>>3405536
Again, no idea what your subject is because I don't think you picked one. No idea where your focus is here either. Compositional rules would've helped this, as would simply getting lower
>>3405538
The only one worth a damn, and I suspect that's only because of the post-proc. I'd prefer having just the two on the left with better (standard rules) composition. I'd also like more from those rolling hills- more contrast or a narrower aperture would help

>>3405720
Ignore this. For all of these scenes you're fine in Manual as you have enough time to figure out what you're doing. Definitely worry more about light and exposure though

No theme. Photos will be curated, don't bitch about it, we'd like to maintain the decent quality like previous years. Chances are though your snapshits will be included because the lack of photographers left on this board.

Photo requirements:
• longest side 2000px
• Max. 2 photos
That's it.

Just send your photos in with your preferred handle and an optional quote.

ETTR means the histogram is flush with the right and there's 4ev of room on the shadow side.

ETTL would mean the histogram is flush with the left with 4ev of room on the highlight side.

A typical metered exposure would have the histogram near the middle with roughly 2ev on either side.

ETTR maximizes SNR and tonal separation.

>>
>>3405822
No, I want the important part of the images correctly exposed, newbie.

Also, the slow shutter speed from a disposable film camera is only ever going to overexpose if used in its suggested light, which is fine, as film has a good 6 or 7 stops extra latitude in the highlights compared to digital.And using an imprecise tool you can only expect imprecise results. Poorly using precise tools, which you are advising, is a totally different issue.

I hated gimmicks and trends for maybe 6 months into life as a photographer but I realised they're useful tools and almost all of the famous/"renowned" photographers used them in some form or another, it's just that they're far cheaper and easier these days and thus far more prevalent

Using a reflective puddle, using a lensball, your phone as a mirror, LEDs for light, etc. They're all sad gimmicky trash or fantastic tools used by the best photographers throughout history- the only deciding factor here is how much of a faggot you, viewing the photo, are. In most cases people don't like them purely because they're popular, which is a fairly common sentiment on /p/ and dumber than a bag of hammers
So, while I don't particularly value my shots that use them, I don't shy away from them or criticise a shot for using them (it's a shit or good shot regardless of the tools used, not because of)

That said, things like lensball and phone reflections are definitely low barrier to entry and tend to be popular on instagram trend accounts, so 99% of them are shit, or are being used to mask weaknesses in the photographer/photograph

I have a few obviously gimmicky shots I like, not many lensball ones though

>>3405667
>i thought you were supposed to shoot through the ball with your smahtphone to use it as a fisheye lens, not so much take a photo of the ball itself. but idunno. i don't get it.
Primary intended use is to give you a wider angle on the same scene. Actual primary use tends to be foreground interest.
In practice they're a bitch to focus on AND still get a usable image because if you're more than a foot away they take up barely any of the frame, coupled with the fact you need to be over f2.8ish to also get the sides of the ball in focus, so most people resort to excessive bokeh like OPs pic

Morning /p/,

It's been a good while since I've made a thread and have quite a bit of random stuff to share. Just developed 50 sheets of E6 too so I need to work on some of those as well. My drum scanning backlog of C41 is ridiculous right now and since I'm actually around town the next few weeks I might try to work on some of it. Most of this stuff ranges from September to now.

First one is Velvia 50
