If you’re not using the viewfinder, you don’t need to raise it to your face.

If you’re not using the rear lcd, you don’t need to hunch over. Actually, you don’t need to hunch over regardless. How the hell are you using your lcd?

But anyway, with some practice, you can shoot from the hip and frame things without looking. A camera in the a6000 size class with a small lens like the 20mm pancake can fit in the palm of your hand and be nigh-invisible.

Are film cameras really worth it?

Oh my god, dude. Calm the fuck down. The scans are fine. Normal people aren't looking at online photos with a loupe for clarity. Strong images are not made in the scanner. You're obsessed with the wrong part of a photography workflow, my man.

>>3405557
>Plustek 7200
I had one of these but the scanning took forever compared to the epson. There is an image quality loss for sure between the two but the gap isn't that crazy and the time saved makes it more than worth it for me. I have been considering upgrading to the v800 though so I can scan large format.

>>3405048
>120 and above are incredibly worth it though. A 6:7 frame has 4.5x the area of a FF digital sensor. Even though digital can pair it and even surpass it regarding resolution and (managing of) chromatic aberrations, it lags far behind when it comes DR and contrast.
The only way you're getting more DR out of film is to shoot specific B&W films then develop them for maximum DR/minimum contrast. No color film, or B&W film developed normally, is going to beat a modern DSLR. Not even Portra versus an off-chip ADC Canon. (On-chip ADC Canons are within 1ev of Sony.)

You would have to define "contrast" because that's baked into color film (absent post processing) yet can be adjusted on any DSLR. I suspect you meant something else.

That said, if you can spend the money for MF and a decent scanner setup (which can be a DSLR+macro+lightbox) Velvia and Provia provide a beautiful view of the world. And B&W + darkroom is the fastest way to learn how to do good looking B&W digital conversions.

>Resolution wise 5x4 varies from around 36 - 150MP give or take. The low end is for shitty technique, and the high end is for ultra-high res film with optimal digitization routines. My average is around 70MP for a basic raw flatbed neg, and a good lightbox setup can boost this a bit. 150 is for that weird ass microfilm shit plus optimal setup.
Interesting you say this. People always claim hundreds of MP for 4x5, but I remember an article comparing a Phase One back at 39mp to 4x5 and the Phase One was damn close. The article left me with the impression that 50-75mp would match it.

>>3405672
When I tried LF for about half a year, I also had the (then brand new) D810 at my disposal. I was hard pressed to see a massive difference. Yeah, 4x5 edged it out and yes, it had movements and nicer highlight roll off but it wasn't the insane difference I thought it would be, and that was after using a several thousand dollar drum scanner.

From my experience with 35mm film, the very best color films like Provia and Velvia can produce up to ~15-20 MP equivalent of a modern camera with a thin AA filter, thus a 4x5 sheet of the same film should top out at ~200-300 MP; but given that even slight diffraction/imperfections of the lens/focus/development/scanning would impact the result way more than they would for a small format, I highly doubt these figures are reachable in practice.

You can get crazy numbers if you just multiply the dimensions by the rated resolution in lp/mm (102 mm * 150 lp/mm *2 * 127 mm * 150 lp/mm * 2 = 1.2 GIGAPIXELS HOO BOY!), but that's impossible to reach in real life because the lp/mm value is given for a 1000:1 test chart with no diffraction, and you can't just equate one line pair to two pixels.

>Imagine being an Egyptian and knowing that your ancestors were more civilized 4,000 fucking years ago than they are today. Because you know they know it.

The modern Egyptians aren't genetically related to the Ancient Egyptians. The modern Egyptians have no genetic markers that even remotely connect them to the Pharaohs although they try to claim them as their "ancestors". Mostly because Egyptians are dreamers but they are also compulsive liars. I have never met an Egyptian that told the truth. They take great national pride in stealing from Westerners and being dishonest in their dealings with them. I think I once referred to it as their "National Sport".

When they rioted against the military recently, they broke into the Cairo museum, shot the curator dead and then proceeded to ransack the entire museum. Almost all the items were then found for sale on Ebay. All the mummies were ripped from their cabinets and sarcophagus and were dismembered. They don't even care about their own heritage. Even the top Archeologist and Director of Antiquities (Zahi Hawass) is a fuck-knuckle trying to gain favor with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Egypt is suffering because their only trade is Tourism ...and tourism has dropped off due to all the rapes and murders in the last few years. People there often get kidnapped because a Western passport from say Australia or America can be worth as much as $1M on the black market there... and a hostage quickly becomes a valuable asset and a sex toy. If you take a photograph while driving past any location of military significance or even a passing tank.. you're gonna get arrested if they see you. Rape is inevitable for women of any age and for men who have fair hair. I know a sound technician from a camera crew who didn't turn up for breakfast one day over there. We found him in the hospital. He'd been held down on his bed and raped by the entirety of the hotel staff because he was a westerner with longish blonde hair.

hasselfag here, not even close

none of these are designed for a human being to use, like look at the shutter button placement. Least awkward way to use it is to keep it at dicklevel with the WLF, which doesn't help composition, you have to cradle it like an expensive child

the system is modular which is great but every single fucking part is too damn expensive. A clean focusing screen is two hundred bucks, an a12 back is two hundred bucks (starting), a good finder that isn't cannibalized from a kiev 88 is two hundred bucks, and don't get me started on the lenses.
By the way, the lenses are always chrome coated which clashes with the body, and near zero of them have a clean action. And the shutter is always a gigantic clunking fuck, good luck using this past 1/30.

Pics look quite nice though

There is no such thing as a perfect camera, otherwise there would be no gearfags

canikon ergonomics and picture quality don't match up, especially for the price
rangefinders are either too expensive (leica) or break too easily (not leica)
olympus build quality is never good
X100 series leaks battery like a chinese village and doesn't say anything till it's dead, also like a chinese village
there are no lenses for Pentax and Sigma can't into high ISO
digital medium format is too expensive for zero autofocus, and good luck buying film in 2018
Large Format is a meme, completely unusable except for static landscapes
the thinking man's choice is a phone camera, and being happy with taking as many pics as you can, knowing they will all be shit.
