>upgrade from the 1.8 to the 1.4
>the 1.4 lens doesn't have any vignetting or distortion when its wide open
i liked the vignetting, and its fixable in post anyway. FML. is there another cheap AF 50mm lens with ridiculous vignetting?

Nikon shooter here but I went down a similar route.

Got the 50mm 1.8g, nice. Sold it to pay a bill but replaced it with a used 1.4g, meh, even s/h cost loads more than a new 1.8g. Sold it to pay a bill. Bought a 50mm 1.8d (old) for very cheap.

Here's the thing, the newer lenses are better wide open, the extreme corners are sharper and they have better contrast. However; stop them all down and the compromises in the newer lens designs become apparent. The older lens is sharper at f4-5.6 across the field.

I'd look for the original (af) Canon nifty fifty. It'll have the "character" wide open but tack sharp when stopped down. Had a look at some test charts and Canon/Nikon 50s seem similar between the models.

I use the 50mm as a "portrait" lens on a crop body so loss of contrast in the centre and softness at the edges with a vignette isn't a problem for me.

Which version do you prefer? If any of you have one please share you're photos. The negatives are huge. This will be my first medium format film camera. I'm torm between this and Fuji ga645(a lot more $$$)

I'm interested in the camera myself. I'm down for the all-mechanical and manual focus part of the whole thing, and of course the big negatives, but without the bulk of most medium format cameras.

Mark Steinmetz used one (pic related).

A generic SnapDragon cellphone to process and transport RAW 6k/8k content to storage? Especially when over heating is a problem on normal RED cameras.

I have a Samsung Note 8 and it sucks so much
I can take nice looking pictures when its sunny, but most of the times auto bumps the ISO high as fuck for no reason, so its all grainy
and the shutter speed is too slow in auto, most of my handheld shots are blurry
if I'm switching to "manual" its good, but when I take out my phone to take a photo I don't want to fiddle around with manual
not sure if its just my note 8, but my old iPhone didn't have these problems

What is smartphone camera? A sensor or a (post)processing software? Most high end phones use the same sensors made by sony, and its shit(and they all have shitty lenses too if you could even call them lenses). So all phone cameras are shit. I dont really understand why phone "photography" is even a thing on /p/
>>
>>3495680
the lenses are actually pretty good for their size, (1.8/1.6 and sharp for it's size)
the problem is just that they're extremely small and attached to extremely small sensors.

look at the lines between the mountains, it's overblown, unnatural and ugly and also retracts from what's beautiful about cascading mountains/objects.
it's your average run of the mill facebook/instagram photography/post processing where you overdo the editing to get a certain aspect of the photo to show up without any subtlety at all while ruining everything else.
as for that picture, the subject is there but the composition is far off, not even wallpaper worthy but it's what normalfags like.

Certain editing techniques, most simple of them being putting too much clarity/dehaze to images in lightroom/photoshop will cause unnatural saturation on edges of hills and mountains in landscapes. It appears as if hills are emitting haloes.

Another thing to add. Imo, that's a good edit. Probably a composition, but a good kind of composition. There's not much wrong with it. Foreground is good, background is good, only needed to show a little bit of restrain on those areas.

I was watching the movie "Model Shop" (1968) on TCM tonight and a big part of the plot and the title revolved around this place in LA where, for $12/15 minutes, you could rent a model and a room and a camera (they used Rollies) and take pictures. When you were done, they handed you the "FREE FILM" and gave you the address of a place that would process it. I'm just wondering if such places actually existed and whether there is anything like that today.

I've never heard of this (both in movie or real life) but it sounds like a tamer (but interesting) version of a peep show. I like that they used Rolleiflexes though, they cared about quality. . Only photography related movie of that era that I know of is Blow-Up.

Here's a pile of Rollies for you. And no, I don't know what the red thing is. The models all posed in their underwear (at least in the movie), so yeah, very tame indeed. But it's nice to see the old two and a quarter twins lens reflexes. Since they handed it to you with the film in and the pictures were B&W, I'm guessing it was 12 frames of Tri-X.

Autofocus, rear LCD and UI on 5D mkI are also real shit compared to modern cameras. I dunno, 5D might be more frustrating to use than E-M5 even despite its OVF.
>>
>>3494918
I'm still shooting a 20D. It's definitely usable but for sure shows its age. Only 9 focus points, a uselessly small LCD, and a buffer that's very easy to fill quickly.
It was leaps and bounds above the 300D I had before it in terms of general usability though.

A 15 year old camera isn't the most convenient thing to use these days, but people definitely got by with the technology at the time.

I still use one, superb m43 for photos till this day, as mentioned nearly the same guts as in mark II, but I prefer the tilt screen in mkI then the flip one in mkI for pure photography any time

Hi /p/, I recently purchased a used Pentax ME-F which has been sitting for a while. I almost went through my first roll of film and I ran into a few issues that I hoped you could help me with.

- In manual mode, low shutter speeds (1/1, 2S, 4S etc.) do not work- instead it picks another shutter speed (I believe 1/125 or 1/60) and rolls with that. Higher shutter speeds do work for some reason.
- It can be hard to turn on the light meter sometimes, I need to hold down the exposure button (? excuse me if this isn't the right word) for a long time before I see any activity.
- Occasionally, when the light meter just turned on, it gives 'OVER' at any apeture that I put my lens in, which is obviously not right. The problem seems to go away as the light meter is on for a few minutes.
- The light meter also gives strange readings sometimes. Yesterday it gave me 1/500 for all shutter speeds at 200 ISO for a landcape at dusk, about 8 PM... It does respond to me covering up the lens, though.
I put in 1.45v batteries where it takes 1.50v batteries, so I'm not sure if that's the reason why it acts up sometimes. Could anyone give me some insight to this? I'm not very experienced with electronic analog cameras.

Thanks!
>>
Try 1.5v batteries. If that doesn't fix anything you'll need to get it fixed.

So, I'm going to Japan in a month, I've got an a7ii with a shitty commlite ef e adapter, do I get a 1ds ii, for the better autofocus with my 24-105mm f4 L, or do I go instead for a 24-70mm f2.8 L, is the 24-70 much faster than the 24-105? My eos 30 seems much more snappy than the a7ii, so I'm assuming the 1ds ii will be even more so, or would something like a proper metabones adapter speed things up more?
