Hey /P/
I have the A7s i bought 3 years ago and am looking to upgrade it. It's still kicking but it is getting outdated. I've been waiting for the A7s III to come out but that maybe until next year. Should i keep waiting or should i upgrade to something else?
I primarily need something good for video as i have a Canon 70D for photo works since i still use Canon Glass because i don't got fuck you money to buy proper Sony glass :(
>>
>>3464596
It's hard to say. I've been waiting for th a7s3 to come out for a while now as well, I don't want to buy the a73 for video work and then get immediate buyer remorse as soon as they announce the a7s3. I will say though, I just bought the sony 24-105, and it's incredible what sony glass can do paired with a sony body. The af in video mode (on an a6400) is pretty damn incredible.

Please canon fans, don't shit on me for some absurd reason, just trying to help this guy
>>
>>3464601
same here!
The a7r III looks good too but lacks certain things for video that i feel the a7s3 will address (low light, better fps, maybe built in Electronic ND filter?)

I have been thinking of getting 1 or 2 sony glass that is not absurdly priced and yeah the 24-105 might be it! my friend has the a6500 with a sony e mount lens and it works wonders as well! it's really hard for me since i have everything from 14-200m lens all in canon glass so it's hard to switch up at this point :/
>>
>>3464612
actually for video, I think the a73, not the a7r3 might be a better choice, it will probably save you a few hundred dollars that you can put towards a lens if you need to. Yeah the 24-105 is great, my boss has the canon version, I loved that lens, so I went and got the sony version, it's incredible. Seems like it will be a workhorse lens.

I was in the same boat as you. I bought a bunch of canon glass just months before I switched over to sony. It took me like 4 years to actually purchase a sony lens, but now that I have one I'm very happy. Also, with the new animal eye af functions that were added to the a73 last week, you might even be able to replace the 70d for your photo purposes too.
>>
>>3464596
>It's still kicking
Then there is no need to upgrade.
>i don't got fuck you money to buy proper Sony glass :(
and you won't if you spend it on a new body that's going to be 'outdated' in less than 5 years.
>>
You making money with the A7s? ISO wise it still is top of the bill 5 years later. I would try to ride it out until late summer and see if Sony finally brings out the A7sIII and more lenses.

Anyone have any tips on apps to resize photo canvas size on mobile devices, either iPad or android.

I can find plenty to resize the image, but not increase the canvas size.

Looking for something free if possible, just want to have something to play around with when the PC is not available.

Thanks

Looking to get a new mirrorless dslr. I've been using a Canon A-1 one film for years and I am finally caving in for a digital cause processing film is such a pain in the ass and expensive. How is the Lumix G7 (pic related)? Or is there anything comparable or better for this price range? Trying to stay 600 or under.

Whoops, forgot to comment on this one. I’m not sure how to photograph a tidal basin in an unusual way, so I won’t say anything further about this. The guy in the middle kinda bothers me, because he acts like the tip of a scale where there’s people on the right and generally more weight with the pier and the small boats. Maybe there’s a good crop somewhere.

Daido Moriyama's Record probably had the most profound impact on me and my photography. Not only the images but how it charts his "Record" issues across his whole career with a lot of his introductions translated into English.

A lot of Daido's writing is on loneliness and feeling like an alien in a big city, not to be angsty but it resonated with me at the time as I was going through depression and a bout of homelessness where I felt like I didn't belong. It made me want to capture that lone wolf "mood" the way he does.

I have this camera, its a joy to use except when trying to focus at large apertures like f/1.8 on manual lenses. In comparison to older camera models you get many many more options for shutter speeds and apertures. Its a lot like shooting a modern camera, just on film.
My biggest complement to the camera though its its incredible light meter, it makes shooting slides incredibly easy. Pic related.

I think it develops like this:

First you start seeing things that look interesting or pretty, and you take a picture of it, and you realize that the photo doesn't do it right. Maybe you don't know why.

Then you see some photos you really think are pretty (whether you took them or not), and certain elements of that image get ingrained into your subconscious.

Then you see something again that catches your eye, and you take a picture of it. Still, it doesn't look great, but this time you have a better idea: this object in the frame is distracting, the image feels strange to look at, etc. This is partly because you have the experience of getting a photo you don't like, but also seeing photos you do like. Those little bits of subconscious "recording" all add up to develop your "eye".

So gradually, through this process of taking pictures, surveying the results and seeing how they make you feel, and seeing what you like in the works of others that you might want to capture yourself, you refine your "eye". Critique also really pushes that process forward in a certain way. Someone says something really harsh about your photo and while it might hurt, a part of you feels that they have a good point. Whether you like it or not, that will affect your photography because it implants something into your mind.

I think people hinder their development of the "eye" when they attach too much importance to ideas/ideals: "street photography is pictures of people walking in the street" or "things have to line up with the rule of thirds" or "everything needs to be just the way so and so said it should be". Ideas are cold things; overthinking gets in the way of feeling.

Pic related: remember initially thinking that something about the tree with the lights was interesting, and then thinking it was a cool idea to have the lights of the parking space sort of echo the holiday lights. But the lighting is meh, and now I see/feel that the composition is just meh; "tree here, lights there."

its nothing, its called having right connections, knowing your influences and stealing from lesser know artists and throwing some pretentious theory to back your bullshit. finding little gaps in past masters work and making your way.
fuck eye
fuck talent
fuck luck

just steal ideas and suck dicks to ride up on the "artistic" ladder. its a wicked life but always take your chances.
