I’m helping hosting a photography competition for a class and I want to buy a photography book for the winner as I imagine they’ll be some what interested in the subject

I want to buy a book like “most influential photographs of all time” to keep their attention whilst also letting them learn something. I’m just worried if the book will contain photographs not suitable for a child like nguyen’s execution or some shit.

Know any safe non political / non gruesome photography books I could buy with the same topic?

if it's money, pirate Lightroom Classic CC

Some people like Capture One but I can't get used to it. Costs like $300 without sub and more if you're a Canonfag.

Darktable and Raw Therapee were the best free alternatives I've used, I had a slight preference for Darktable.

Do you ever have issues with the film feed after chucking a roll into the camera? Sometimes I get angry and start yelling fuck when the film lever makes the cylinder turn but the film snaps out.

EOS M6II for 899 EUR? M system seems pretty well fledged out by now, offering dual pixel, a few nice primes from Canon and Sigma, and the best APS-C sensor currently on the market. Even if it was a dead end, I dont think I would miss any lens. WBU?

any advice how to get into documentary filmmaking? Money & gear isn't really an issue for me and i have plans for some interesting projects. But how do i start? I mean how do i approach people and ask them "Hey, i want to make a documentary about you and your group" without being rejected for being a noob without any prior experience?

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.

Weed is a psychedelic, and is used by many creative people. You only need shrooms or acid if you have a major case of writers block. Weed just helps you relax like drinking but using a ton of weed is much safer than drinking a ton of alcohol (which is something a lot of writers like to do. cf. Hemingway)

Well, they're both bad. But weed with fry your brain, while alcohol will only fry your body. Sticking to water and waiting for druggies to fall over is fool proof plan.

Hello, newfag here

Looking for a small portable camera to film travels and make small cinematic videos for myself just to edit and capture memories, with a gimble. Nothing too professional.

Read the sticky and it says
>get the m50
Was wondering anyone tried the sony zv1? I know its basically for youtube vloggers and such, however I like the small form factor and you just point and shoot. However some drawbacks like micro-usb and the shitty battery life doesn't let me to pull the trigger. Was thinking to wait a couple months and see what Sony does with the Mark 2 of this camera. Since they're rumors they will use some kind high-end tech from the A1.

Also I could get a G7X Mark III barely used from a friend but when I checked the reviews I like the Sony video quality much better.

I don't intend to spend more then 1k since I'm not a professional nor I intend to be. Any tips ?
>>
>>3868525
You should get an interchangeable lens camera. Being able easily upgrade your lenses if you want a fast prime or something is pretty nice. Also a larger sensor will give you a better image and more ability to control depth of field.You can get a good deal on a used one.

I got into photography recently (used to take pictures on my phone) so I'm still learning about technical stuff, especially lenses.

I currently own an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II with a Panasonic G 20mm f/1.7 II Pancake lens for street photography, and it's pretty good.

I'm looking for more recommendations on good lenses to diversify my experience, what else would you recommend, especially for autoportrait ? Should I go for a 50mm lens or more ?

>Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary
>Olympus 17mm f/1.8
>Olympus 45mm f/1.8

Any other recommendations will likely be outside your budget if the likes of constant aperture zooms are out of your budget.
You may also consider the Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 X, or the Kowa Prominar 8mm f/2.8.
>>
>>3867627
I consider the 12-40 f2.8 to be excellent at the wider focal lengths but to be just good or decent from 25 to 40mm.

For anyone who is looking at it it also has an extremely short minimum focus distance, so you can do almost-macro stuff.
>>
>>3867612
Pls stop me from buying the 20mm f1.7

I already have the 14mm 2.5 and 25mm 1.7
>>
>>3868446
Do it it's a good lens don't listen to the haters saying it focuses slow and it's noisy. (Not saying it isn't those things but it's a great lens nonetheless)
>>
I've been using the Panasonic PZ 14-42mm compact zoom since I'm only interested in the smallest kit possible.

Works great with the GM5 and GX1 and other pocket cameras.
I far I find it more versatile and convenient than the 12-32mm, even though that lens is considerably smaller.

Just got LrC after having used LR 5.6 for quite some time. I've noticed the images appear to be sharpened quite extensively within LrC before any edits are applied. Has anyone experienced this before? In the example provided, left image is the original, and the right image is from within LrC. Whether opening the original file in Windows, or Chrome, the experience is the same. Any input appreciated.
>>
>>3868097
LR automatically puts sharpening at 40 when you import
>>
>>3868211
I double and tripled checked the sharpening slider and it's set to 0. Texture and clarity are also at 0. Upon exporting, the image appears the same as the original jpeg. This means that Lightroom is displaying a picture that is sharpened, however that does not reflect the final export. I'm rather perplexed by this.
>>
>>3868373
Have you checked if you have sharpening on export on?
>>
>>3868097
Funny you posted it here since I've made this 'mistake' yesterday

when importing your images on Lr make sure to have your settings as the pic attached. Lr has it's own sharpening when you import it

Talk me out of it....

Because A Mount was a quick flash in the pan that never gained real traction. Other than the 135STF and the weird autofocus catadioptric lens they made, there aren’t any A Mount lenses that it’s really worth adapting to other mounts, and do not enough people would buy an adapter to justify the R&D cost.

It's not a argument or a trend. Plenty other sites have user names, yet these two decide to come here and alter board culture. You are defending a cancer that has destroyed the internet by concentrating solely on the person and not the photograph, statement, creation, etc. Art is not a man, neither is a photograph.
