Hey, /p/. I'll keep this short - im looking for advice in two categories...

1. Ideal gear setup with all pieces and parts exceeding no more than $3k in cost (I have laptop - just need camera equipment).
2. Great resource to learn photography online (free or paid - I tend to like structured 'courses' or Playlists to watch in a specific order. I'd even bite on a udemy course if it wasn't garbage).

Primary interest is to capture pictures of landscapes, buildings, nature, with the occasional shots of people.

I'm going to be traveling the US for the foreseeable future and have decided to try out photography as a hobby to capture sights and memories along the way. I'm fortunate enough to have a nice chunk of change to spend on all gear and potentially a course if one is worth it.

I need everything except a laptop. Camera, lenses, batteries, traveling case, etc.

Looking for any and all advice - I've been lurking here past few weeks but I'll be the first to admit I'm in over my head in this world.

It's not a reminder, it's a proper tip. When you begin your babysteps into photography you'll have to understand how cameras work first, so a decent DSLR or Mirrorless and lens will do that for you.

Additionally you'll invest in basic additional gear as well, proper bag, strap, cleaning kit, filter, whatever.

You'll be swapping out lenses and body later on as you are working towards specific types of photography you like doing.

Then that extra 2k will come in handy.
>>
>>3972633
I appreciate the advice and the breakdown with all the additional gear.

You and the other poster simply said you don't need to spend 3k to get into photography. I'm aware of that, that's why I said all gear NOT TO EXCEED $3k. I was simply trying to filter out recommendations that were out of budget.

I'm open to suggestions and gear recommendations for a total of $1k if they're going to be a nice fit - just because I give an upper limit doesn't mean it has to be reached.
>>
>>3972639
>>3972639
Well that depends on the second hand market prices on your place. For the body go max 500 dollars, full frame for what you want to photograph.

Get 2-3 lenses for 400 dollars total and then 100 dollar in extra gear.

I'm a Canon user so I can help you only on that.

5D MKII is a proper base DSLR which shouldn't cost too much.

I'd get a 50mm 1.8, 17-40mm f4L for lenses. That should cover everything.

Rest in additional gear.
>>
>>3972649
You can get a 5DMK3, but you'll eventually will sell the body anyway so I wouldn't invest too much in it anyway.

I just bought a Sony RX vii on sale, I've never had a real camera. Should I return it and get something cheaper? I like that it's small but if I can get something for half the price that takes the same photos I'd probably do that

I started with an RX100 III and had it for at least a year and a half before getting an a6400.
It's a fantastic camera and a great camera to learn photography with. It's got all the manual controls, aperture priority, shutter priority, etc. and it shoots in RAW. Best thing is that it's so small it fits in your pocket and you can take it anywhere with no hassle. I've taken mine hiking, skiing, to the beach, etc.
I bought mine used and very cheap. I don't know how much you spent on yours but I know the newer ones are kind of expensive. If you're okay with spending the same amount of money you could consider buying a used DSLR or mirrorless ILC, if you want the higher resolution.

They 100% are, you don't need charity to look after your people if your government offers that support in the first place.

Charity is a uniquely capitalist notion and undeniable proof of its failure.

RF mount doesn't have the FE mount selection, and as we saw from canon issuing a cease and desist on samyang making AF RF mount lenses, they're still firmly rooted in there anti consumer, money grabbing ways.

Well, /p/....it finally happened.

I just bought the god camera. 50MP. And with the 50mm, there's no photo it can't slay.

What are some cool things I can do with a 5DS R and 50mm f/1.2L? I'm thinking that this will be my only and last camera and lens.

Are you ever going to post a photo you took with such a broad dynamic range that you just *needed* any more than what the 5DSR had to offer?
>>
>>3972538
I think you're confusing this anon >>3970376 >>3970380 with this one >>3970194.

None of the DR cry babies in this thread have anything to post.
>>
>>3972574
Those DR crybabies are right though. In OP`s case I don`t see why he would need 50MP. Unless he's printing large format posters of a couple square meter, or needs to do enormous crops, which I doubt is the case on either, looking at his lens choice. Proper dynamic range is important.

This is also an older DIGIC 6 processor, so it will have a struggle properly handling those 50MP.

It's a nice kit, but I would think why? if someone comes up with this unless he would need for a specific use case, given the current choices in the market.

Either way, enjoy OP. Try out some portrait photography.
>>
>>3972599
>can't produce a single sample high DR photo that could be captured on a 14ev sensor but not a 12ev one
>"Proper dynamic range is important."
Choose one and only one.

>Unless he's printing large format posters of a couple square meter,
50mp makes a difference at 16x24. I'm not saying you need 50mp at that size, but it's already starting to show an advantage.

>This is also an older DIGIC 6 processor, so it will have a struggle properly handling those 50MP.
It doesn't struggle at all.
>>
>>3972625
>Choose one and only one.
I'm just saying proper dynamic range is important when you chose a camera.

>50mp makes a difference at 16x24
Yeah, that's a couple square meter..as I said, he won't be printing those. And a 24MP camera does just fine in that format..

>It doesn't struggle at all.
I doubt that, DIGIC 6 we are talking about a CMOS that's almost a decade old. It will struggle with 50MP on image quality.

Should i get a Sony A7(any gen) and a Canon EF 50mm f1.4 is usm as my only camera and lens? Im quite poor so i can only afford one nice camera and one nice lens.

I mostly do street photography and im looking for big bokeh.

f/11 on 6x7 is roughly equivalent to f/5.6 on 35mm, and either setting is shit for subject separation. Except, perhaps, in macro or long telephoto situations.

>If I can’t afford it no one can!

Nice cope anon. Have fun trying (and failing) to learn about systems you’ll never get to use. I’ll be out shooting lol.
>>
>>3972604
No one mentioned price. I called you out because of your ridiculous claim that f/11 yields nice subject separation on MF. It's a claim I intuitively knew was false (because I currently own 645 and have shot 6x7/6x9). And it's a claim anyone can confirm is false simply by looking up equivalent aperture.
>>

You think aperture equivalency is actually a thing and can only afford cropped MF, lol.
