If you are not planning to upgrade to ff get the 16-85mm dx instead. I used to shoot with the 24-105mm on the 60d and it's a good zoom range (38-168 ff equivalent), however after switching to ff realized how much more useful this lens is with the wider fov.

Replace your old shitty Sigma with the newer 17-50 2.8. It's $300 new and as low as $130 used.

The D7000 is already a pretty good camera. Get rid of your shit lens, and get something appropriate for the APS-C sensor, like the 35mm 1.8 dx. You're currently using a fairly crappy ff lens on a more than adequate APS-C body which is magnifying its flaws. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater, and don't sidegrade to fucking APS-C mirrorless either, especially an also outdated model. (Sidenote, why is it always the X-T1 that people have convinced themselves they should get?)

Additional lens options: Sigma 18-35mm if you really want to splash the dosh for something really good.

Only drop the camera if you're going to leave the idea of interchangeable lenses behind completely. Then get something like a Ricoh GR, Sigma DP2, Panasonic LX100 and so on. Or move up to FF if you want - then a system change makes sense because your only lens is not exactly great anyway.

So this guy supposedly has a box full of Olympus XAs yet he doesn't know how the viewfinder works with imaginary red LEDs. I smell bullshit.

>>it can't be a real rf, because they would need someway of communicating focus distance between lens and body
>Lol, cameras literally already do this.
As much as I like real rangefinders, I think you're missing the point and what you're saying is not well thought out.

Suppose the Fuji (or any other brand) lenses had a mechanical rf linkage.
A modern autofocus system, at the speed it's operating, would absolutely rape the rf cam and other parts of the linkage, either on the lens or the body. And probably kick the rf patch out of alignment very often.

No matter your tolerances, if you're swiveling around condensers and beamsplitters found in an rf in milliseconds (typical AF speed), parts will wear out and become loose quickly.

Got an RF? Give it a try.
How long does it take an AF system to focus from minimum focus distance to infinity? Say half a second? Now try moving your rf lens from minimum focus to infinity in half a second. I can already hear the gears screeching on a Contax IIa.
Now imaging doing that thousands of times in a week. No chance the RF would survive and maintain calibration.

The only viable option would be either manual focus lenses, or a hybrid system like the contax G1/2, without any visible patch in the viewfinders.

>fine I admit, it's not a rf, but but but that's because rf lenses can't focus that fast.

And fuji, in all their wisdom, couldn't come up with a more modern method than a physical linkage.

You're the smallest of small brains on all 4chan,and i include isi and sugar in that.

i'd get a nd filter for these shots, 1/2 second shutter isn't really slow enough to fully smooth out the water. would also look for an angle with a less busy background or shoot wider with the nd filter so it's more defocused
>>
>>3546354
Fully smooth water is a meme imho
Nice to have some detail that actually still looks like water rather than white strands of hair suspended over some rocks

ND filter is still nice to have so you don't have to shoot at f10000 though

i have gathered some sources to find new and classic published photography art work.
unfortunately the main focus of most of the people on this board is on social media, but photography art world still exist in print. so by this way we can learn what's going in the art world and how we can approach our own projects or may be just to find inspiration.

answer these question if you like to
>how do you find new published art work?

Does /p/ calibrate their monitors? I calibrated my screen for the first time. I borrowed a colorimeter from a pro photographer friend and finally did all the calibration steps. He mentioned that he does it at least once a week and before any paid project.
Does the screen really change that much to warrant constant calibration???
Also, any recommendations for a cheap but good colorimeter? (I can't afford the one I just borrowed.. even a used one is way over my budget).

>never works
Maybe it was thanks to the monitor I had at the time but it worked very well. Not quite as good as the Spyder, but if the Spyder means >95% of prints look the same screen/print then with manual it was easily >85%.

I didn't even use an OS wizard like in your pic. I literally went into the monitor menu and with the test print open in PS fiddled with RGB levels until the screen matched the print in my hand.

Certainly a Spyder is the way to go but if you're a poor fag manual helps until you get one.

All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

Check Kodak library of creative photography. Time life series that focused on beginner and intermediate photography. You should be able to get free pdf from various internet archives. Then you have Ansel Adams and his zonal theory for black and white.
