>implying that storage cards can be destroyed by decaying
They can. Storage in a leaky basement will kill a memory card just like it'll kill a negative. Probably not as quickly and easily, but still. The physical media is always going to be vulnerable. I assume there's a rate at which the charge stored in NAND flash memory decays, too, but it might be so long that no one's bothered measuring it (especially given that they will generally die first from hitting their write limit).

>implying card readers capable of reading your particular sd card will always be available
Doesn't matter. If you have a digital copy, and civilization hasn't fallen, you will always be able to transfer the data from medium N to medium N+1. Truly digital data isn't like a VHS recording, which is just magnetic analog information--you lose quality every time you copy a VHS from one tape to another, but I can copy one of my CR2s an effectively infinite amount of times and it'll still be the exact same raw data. Same data if it's on a flash drive, same data if it's on a magnetic hard drive, same data if it's on digital magnetic tape, same data if it's on a DVD, same data if it's on some sort of future crystal shard data storage mechanism.

This makes digital data a lot more resilient in theory than, say, a negative. The LoC goes to an insane amount of effort to preserve negatives in a special climate/humidity controlled storage area. If one of those negatives is lost, it's gone forever. A digital photo, you can back it up on hundreds of different servers around the globe and keep it a lot safer. Granted, if civilization falls all bets are off and a tiny optical version of the image may last longer than an individual spinning hard drive that's not maintained, but you can go down a serious rabbit hole of paranoia if you start planning for the downfall of civilization in your data storage practices.
God damn it why would you even mention that cringy term

post your negatives thread?

I went down to Cairo, IL--the moist crotch of Illinois--to take pictures of its steady and dramatic decline.

In >>3397608, some anon said to me:
>Kid, are you blind or new? Colour science alone would give it away to anyone that's owned a camera for more than 3 months.
so, this thread is also something of a challenge: I shot with both a Canon 5D Mark III and a Sony A7 II, each with their respective nifty fifties. I picked the camera to shoot each picture with basically randomly. See if you can guess which shot came from which camera based on color science!

9/22, 40%.

(To be fair, there's also a Nikon shot in there somewhere which I didn't actually tell anyone)
Bumping in case that first guy wants to come back and try guessing the rest.

Rust belt can be done if you know where to go. Cairo is one of those places I have to drive through to get somewhere else because whoever planned the Interstate system thought no one would try to get to Florida/Georgia from west Missouri, ever.

What is the best dslr for under $300? I'm looking to buy a gift but I'm not made of money. Is this Nikon B500 worth it? Any help would be appreciated.

>not calling it Nikon B800
The Nikon B500 is not a DSLR, and no, it’s not worth it.

For under $300, you’re going to have to get something used. And unfortunately, “best” is a very fuzzy term here, since that much will either get you an old low end model or a *very* old higher end model, and each has different tradeoffs. You could get a once-flagship Canon 1D Mark IIN for that money, but if you’re buying a present for your 10 year old son, you’d be better off with something like a Rebel SL1 for the same price.
>Is this Nikon B500 worth it?
Absolutely not, if you have to go with these bridge cameras, get Panasonic FZ200. It has raw support and constant f/2.8 aperture
Rabal SL1 for $200 and 50mm 1.8 for $100
NEX5 for $200 and chinkshit 35mm lens for $50

Why are cameras so ugly? No one would call that good aesthetics or a beautiful design. Sure, very functional. But I don't wanna walk around with something ugly like this in my hand.

And please don't start with muh Fujifilm or Leica. Just sticking to the awful 80s design doesn't make it any better.

Hi /p/. I never really browsed here until today. My mother is thinking of buying me a camera for Christmas.

I never have really taken pictures seriously, but maybe a cheap shitter camera will let me dip my feet into what you guys do all the time.

I'm honestly pretty interested in taking pictures of the school i go to and some of the events that happen here to start, does anybody have good recommendations of cheap starter cameras?

Go on craigslist/gumtree/locanto/fb marketplace/whatever local used site you use and look for any dslr made in or after 2008 with a kit lens attached in good condition under $300. Make sure to google the model before buying, sometimes people put 'dslr' in the title when they're selling point and shoot cameras, most of which won't be any better than your phone. This is a small enough investment that you won't feel bad about not using it or selling it for a bit less, but any dslr made after 2008 will be good enough to teach you photography.
Learn about the exposure triangle, use full manual controls at first, try to aim for the lowest ISO you can without going to slow with the shutter, try to put some thought into your photos, try to use the golden ratio to balance your compositions, replicate a few corny shots as practice and have fun. Oh and always shoot raw and try your best not to overcook your edits in lightroom.
It's definitely going to be a different experience than using your phone cam, you'll have full control over your exposure and depth of field and your pics will already have a more "professional" feel to them, simply because the different depth of field inherent to the much much larger sensor.
Pic related is roughly what you should be looking at. Make sure you inspect the lens and the body, lens should be clean inside and outside, try all the buttons, look at the battery compartment for any corrosion, try the screen, the viewfinder and take a few pics with different aperture and zoom settings to test the shutter, the aperture blades and the zoom ring.
RX100 is the best compact camera you can get

or just get an old Cannon, the kit lens, and go nuts

Anyone had a similar problem?

So my shutter button just stopped working. I had my camera for half a year without any issues and then all of sudden the shutter button started to act weird. It would lag when taking a picture until it just stopped altogether. It focuses normally on half press but it cant take a picture.

I tried the following:
>changed battery
>did a setting reset
>tried a different lens
>tried a manual focus lens
>changed the card

I thought it might have something to do with the card to camera connection but no. Now I'm thinking it might be corrosion or humidity problem.

Anyone had similar issue? Know how to fix it?

>impying all that adapted lenses shit doesn't apply to all cameras
What new 17-40?
It doesn’t.

Nikon sucks for adapting old lenses. With the exception of the Df, modern Nikons can’t even use old NIKON lenses as well as other brands can, and they do fun things like turning off the meter entirely if they can’t figure out the lens’ Max aperture.

Canon is a little better, but there are still a lot of vintage mounts you can’t adapt to them, like Minolta, Leica M, Pentax K (on full frame bodies), and even Canon’s older manual focus FD mount.

In terms of mounts they’re compatible with, in terms of flange focal distance, Fuji and Sony are just about equal, but Sony has a few distinct advantages:

1. Being full frame, you can use the full image circle of the vintage lenses. A 1.5x crop changes the field of view of everything and means that you’re SoL for adapting lenses if you want wide angle.
2. Sony is more open about their mount specs, which means there are more smart adapters available for Sony, including very good ones like the sigma MC11 which let you use Canon lenses with very good compatibility.

My bad, the 16-35 f4 is, that they brought in to replace the old 17-40.

How did you find your niche?

You can't just be a "photographer" if you wanna make a living. You've gotta be a matrimonial photographer, a women's fashion photohrapher, an actor headshot photographer. I'm a videographer, and I can NOT find one thing I'm inherently drawn to. What did it take for you?

I just started telling people that I was the shit. If you know your work is at least okay, start putting energy in to convincing others that it's amazing.

Semiotics. Convince enough people that your work is great and it will be. The only difference between a mediocre photographer and an 'artist' is charisma and ego, nothing in their technical skill or quality of work.
>it's a repulsing thought to whore myself out to some consumer faggots

yeah it's much better to whore yourself out to your boss so he can afford a new sports car

good goy
I don't care what my boss buys, I just focus on my own paycheck and making it fatter. Not everyone is a bitter Starbucks barista with no prospects and pitiful labor potential. Heavy industry is a field where you are expected to pull more than your weight's worth and you get more than compensated as long as you aren't some loser who can't put a price on his own labor.
>You can't just be a "photographer" if you wanna make a living.
Dammit, NOW you tell me! Wish you had told me that BEFORE I started my career, which I retired from 2 years ago, after 30+ successful years! Photography bought 2 homes, put 3 kids through college and allowed me to travel the world. Would have been awesome if I could have actually made a living at it!
>/p/ has become filled with whiners who would rather invent endless reasons "why not" instead of investing some effort in "I can!"
30+ years ago, you could be a photographer without specializing. Shit’s different now.

Hit post oops, but it would have been better if the photo were more closely cropped and there had been a whole pc setup, but if that couldn't work then at least some way to display an image on the monitor, like maybe next time have it stream the live view of the camera itself

Actually don't do that, that's my idea

Since phone photo quality is largely based on the software and processing power, I'd say it pretty much equals to buying the latest and the greatest phone with good optics. Or you can just buy mediocre $200-300 Android phone and $800 camera+lens to have something solid. There's XT-20 + kit + card + bag on B&H for 799 righ now, for instsance.
no, compensation for the small sensor is the key here
