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.

You need to buy some distilled water do to the action that could be done with regular water.
As for me this is nothing but downside.
In general distilled water is ok, I'm diluting long term chemicals in it. Anyway Adoflo I dilute in drinking water (filtered tap water).

Bought an old digital camera to snap pics on walks. Having fun so far. Some are learner mode snap shits. Maybe I'll become advanced enough to post my own gear thread someday.

Can post uncropped raws if there is interest. I certainly need improvements on edits and crops.

Let's see your low resolution shitcam shots. Old cell phone pics, early digital cameras, crap cams, etc. all apply, let's see how much art can come from horrible hardware.

I just bought a Vtech Kidizoom 1.3mp with a 16GB card, and it's a fun point and shoot for what it is. Quality is terrible, but it's a good challenge to work with.

I know its going to be Canon, because I like the ergo. I love my EOS20D, Perfect ergo. Its time to upgrade though.

Budget is 1.6k

Most ideal choice seems like EOS R, but no IBIS and old.
Second choice is what R8 might be (if leak is true), but no IBIS.
Thought of R7, but like low light photography and its a cropped sensor, which is the past.
R6 is too expensive.

Thoughts? Kinda feel like keep shooting at 8mp and keep waiting.

Generally pretty happy with the full sized output after processing the raws as well under those terms, even pixel peeping them. Granted, it's feasible maybe I'm more comfortable with or better at using certain noise reduction techniques than others (Darktable affords you a lot more fine tuning than LR/C1 after all), or also simply can tolerate more in an image (imo luma noise can be totally ignorable or even flattering, as long as I stomp out any visible chroma), who knows.
>>
>>4135675
Well, you just need the perspective of someone getting in, then it sucks. You want to avoid the adapter and are reluctant to build a system with a former, rather than the current mount. However, the current version is an expensive proposition for which a cheaper used market has yet to be established, and there are some gaps in the offering as Canon initially intended to add new things rather than replace lenses directly, taking into account the existing EF system. Kinda all credit and loyalty to their user base. But you seem to be screwed if you are new.
>>
>>4135682
Yeah, exactly that. I have 2 cheap lenses, so its not a factor moving forward.
Which is why it looks like buying EOS R now and then in a few years upgrading to whatever (if even needed) is the best idea.
Maybe thats why R prices are not budging, it is that one affordable entry mirrorless FF Canon.

I appreciate Carver and respect his commitment to what it is that he does and I will continue to follow him but I just don't think he has a talent for picking his subject matter nor his perspective. I'm sorry to say that because, again, I do like him in a general photography sense. I just don't think he's talented. I mean, he's limited by the equipment he uses, of course, so his perspective is often forced into this little windowbox of where he can even physically setup and spend his autistic amount of time doing whatever autistic things he has going on in his head but it often just doesn't lend itself to an interesting photograph, despite it's cleanliness or true to life feeling. I guess what I'm trying to say is that he's a gearfag, just a wannabe old-timey gearfag. And that there's nothing really special to his work other than he's an old-timey gearfag who acts like an old-timey gearfag. And an old-timey gearfag can just as much a gearfag as a new gearfag. Ya feel me?

Sup fuckers. Borrowing my boss’s Nikon d750 made me consider buying a camera. I want something that can do astrophotographer shit if possible, but I really just want to be able to take pro/frame-able pics of national parks. Don’t want to spend more than 1k. $400 Is target budget. I know nothing about cameras. Any advice?

can someone explain to me what is the deal with astro? You are literally shooting far away specks of light that look exactly the same to everyone on Earth at any time. There is no composition, no creative exposure modes (stars are either correctly exposed and tracked or they are not) and there is nothing that hasn't bren photographed before in a better way with better equipment

you can stack images with zoom lenses and telescopes to get objects the naked eye can't see.
You can also play around with foreground objects, trees, mountains, etc for composition and framing.
I used to do timelapse on a moving rail. Many things to explore. Though I'm assuming you were just neg posting.
If you're somewhere you can shoot the milkyway, you are probably in a beautiful location.

So, i want to get into Photography. I recently got some money for spending purposes for myself and i want to get myself a nice camera.

Then again, i kinda have no idea what i should be looking for.

What i want to do:

-Scenery, like landscapes
-small objects like flowers
-Animals, so it should have good zoom
-rechargeable battery pack, so i can just plug it into a powerbank when i forget to recharge it

Would really appreciate any kind of help. Budget would be around 1000 - 1200 bucks

ok, good luck in shooting decent photos 10 years from now without ever understanding the exposure triangle

How often do you change metering modes and how important is it to you?

For my understanding any falsely set metering mode could still be changed in post, but please correct me if I'm wrong

It mattered a lot more when cameras were kind of shit or you were shooting color film, especially slides

These days every camera over $500 has enough dynamic range and enough bit depth in its raws to spot meter for the brightest thing you don't want to be solid white, press the AEL button or fiddle with your settings to make that very light gray, and keep your camera there until the light changes

>For my understanding any falsely set metering mode could still be changed in post, but please correct me if I'm wrong
Only to a limited extent. Anything dramatically overexposed or underexposed will be lost. RAW files offer more room for exposure correction. JPG files are pretty limited there. Exposure is different from white-balance, for which it practically doesn't matter in RAW whether it's set in-camera or in post-processing.

You probably got triggered by one of my other posts where I've mentioned Evaluative, Matrix, Average and so on for a balanced metering, but also spot metering to measure for highlights or shadows.
Metering plays an important role for me, which is why I change it often, as well as the exposure modes, also because I have a very broad spectrum in photography. I'd like it if all manufacturers (e.g. Canon) had zebras and highlight metering, I found it repeatedly useful with Sony.

I never change metering modes, if metering is off, I just adjust exposure comp.

I rarely change metering modes. I'll use evaluative most of the time, occasionally spot metering, or I'll bypass both and just shoot manual and use the histogram to judge exposure.

Reading >>4135602 I should probably add to >>4135604 why metering is important to me.
I try to shoot in proper exposure for capturing (high quality, no clipping, little noise, no lost color information) but also constant exposure for a series of images so that batch editing allows me to edit many images in one go, with only a few images needing individual corrections. I often even set the white balance, shoot in constant exposure but varying depth of field. I try to shoot manually and correct with metering from time to time, but if the lighting conditions change too much and too quickly, I try to meter my exposure from fixed points, then often with spot metering. The Canon metering modes in the OP image are pretty much sorted, starting from the right with very manual metering but ease to achieve a uniform exposure, to the left, very variable and automatic metering but larger deviations in the exposure.

What is your travel kit? I’m going to Costa Rica next month, going to shoot wildlife, landscape, urban, my girlfriend in a bikini in front of beach scenes, waterfalls, etc. For my x-t2 I have a 35f1.4, 18f2, 70-300, 16f1.4, and 56f1.2. Will bring the 70-300 and maybe one other lens, possibly just the 16f1.4

You should get the 18-55mm and just take that and maybe the 35mm. Keep it simple.

OM2n with 50mm 1.8 and 28mm 3.5. Cheap trip MD3 as backup. All fits in a small bag along with film and a few spare batteries. No expensive or rare kit that I would be upset about if it got stolen or damaged while travelling.

last trip, those old VC rolls were shot iso 80 since they were old (but still freezer stored before expiring) for a gig.
also that point and shoot has been replaced with a fujifilm klasse.
