Post a picture, tell a story about it.

I took this photo near a subway station in Seoul. As I was walking to the station, I saw a group of maybe 30+ people, all at least 50 years old, dancing to some really loud K-pop. There was one person up at the front, facing all the others, so I think it might have been some sort of dance/fitness class.

What's the microphone button for? Does it take voice clips?

Does it print video clips?
>>
>>3493223
No, it prints photos but the Microphone allows you to save photos with sound that you can playback later (similar to "Sound & shot" mode that use to appear in some smartphone camera menus).
With the instax, if you record an audio clip, the image has a qr code embedded to it and you can then scan the code with your smartphone to hear the sound later/share with friends etc

Sup /p/, newfag here. How do I get this aesthetic? I've been into photography for a while, however I've been out of the game for a while and want to get back into my creative groove. Anyways, I've always been a fan of aesthetically pleasing monochromatic pictures and would like to experiment with it myself. what is the best way to get pic related aesthetics?

Find a nice wide open area (preferably NOT OVER WATER) and send the drone out. It'll build your confidence. Remember to have tour homepoint set if you get confused/nervous and need to use the RETURN TO HOME feature. Als do your general pre-flight checks making sure props are secure, you have enough gps satellites to keep connection going etc
Remember wind force is often higher as the altitude of the drone rises so if it's windy at ground level before you fly, keep an eye on your monitor for wind warnings.
Lastly, it goes without saying but since you're not used to it, as you send it higher try to keep it within line of sight so you're not disoriented once you don't see it anymore.

Yeah, they get out of calibration sometimes especially if you've been moving it around a lot. There should be an option somewhere in the menu to calibrate it.

No matter how many times i wipe with a micro fiber cloth the fucking lens still have wipe marks

How the fuck do i get rid of this shit

Especially "fog halos" around bright light bulbs in the dark or street lights at night are attributed to fat or oil smeared lenses. Everyone of us should know this from mobile phones. Compact cameras are also prone to this problem, e.g. the RX100.
>>
For the external surfaces of the lens, don't be too anal about it.
If you're cleaning the internals:

- ROR, Eclipse, etc. are good. Personally isopropyl or lighter fluid work good enough for me, are a lot cheaper.
- pec-pads, kimwipes etc.
- cotton swab

Put the wipe over the cotton swab, add a drop of cleaning fluid. Make a single stroke over the lens. Pick a different part of the wipe and repeat.

This is the only way I've found to genuinely get a lens clean from oils. The most important part is never using the same part of the tissue twice, can't stress that enough.
It's slow and seems to take forever, but if you start to cheat and reuse the same surface, you'll just push the dirt and oils around and it'll take longer in the end. There are no shortcuts if you want it perfect.

Getting rid of tiny dust particles is actually the hardest part. I try not to get too OCD about it. For impeccably clean lens elements you likely need professional equipment like an ultrasonic cleaner and a proper dust-free working environment.

Make sure you get REAL ones, not Chink copies of them.

There is a bunch of sellers of the fake ones, and the results were damaged coatings on expensive SC telescopes

Op you're trying to wipe grime off using dirt. Your fiber cloth is next to useless after its first usage.
get some kimwipes, they're like 5 dollars for 280 wipes they'll literally last forever because you shouldn't be cleaning your shit that often. That way its a perfectly clean wipe each use.
You need to use them with a good solution though. Don't use windex or alcohol, even though people get away with it. Better be safe than cheap, pancro is pro shit. YouTube "cleaning camera lenses" I found like 3 different people recommending it (+ the wipes) and I doubt the company shills that hard

I unironically think that isi is the most artistic person on this board, and one of the most talented at taking interesting, aesthetically pleasing photos.

I miss isi

I’ve never actually gone out with a camera to shoot. I’ve bought like 5 photography books and it’s been 4 years since I first got interested in photography but I never really done it.

same. I started collecting images of art styles as inspiration then bought acrylic paints, brushes, canvas boards and other related stuff a couple of years ago to learn how to properly paint but haven't started yet. I'm also starting to lose interest in photography.
