Lastly and most obvious I just cropped out the mess that were those grates. They weren’t even parallel with the horizon so they really fucked the image. Next time play with the angle of the shot. The grates look cool so use them to your advantage. I’m imagining placing the phone on the grate so that that way not only is your phone steady but the grate is parallel with the horizon. I think this would actually bring a nice contrast like a sort of nature vs industrial type sovl. Obviously I’m not there but I can imagine if you could get the camera just right the grates could act as a sort of field of grass and the trees would be coming out of the metal earth.

I don’t think Steinbeck was fetishising his ball point the way OP thinks he was. For a start he probably used a typewriter. He probably didn’t fetishise that either. The ‘pen’ is merely a metaphor for the writers ability to observe and experience the world around him and relate that back to the reader in elegant, convincing prose.

But Steinbeck’s typewriter was never an extension of his heart and mind it was merely a conduit through which he gave a physical presence, in the form of printed words, to his experiences in the world beyond his typewriter and the ideas that developed in his head.

Likewise an instrument is the conduit that allows a musician to give voice to the sounds in his head and a camera is the conduit that allows the photographer to show their own way of looking at the world around them.

Both cameras and musical instruments are expensive things and hobbyists are wont to attach personalities in the form of names or “body, mind and soul” to such inanimate objects. This is mostly to compensate for their shortage of confidence and skill in using them. It also gives them something to blame for their lack of ability and helps foster the excuse that what they are really short of is not so much ability as more gear.

Sony mirrorless cameras have interval shooting built in, even for the cheap APSC ones
https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1940/v1/en/contents/TP0002686440.html
and all of them support a control cable using the micro USB port

Where does everybody get their framing done? A complete aluminum 18x24 frame with mat and AR glass (requirement) is like $170 at my local shop.
Am I skimping to go cheaper? I want it done well.

I'm not sure if the camera I want exists
I want something that you can take literally anywhere, no matter the time of day or climate, combined with good image quality and durability.
Does such a thing exist? Every camera I've been looking at either compromises, or is too large to be feasible. I don't want some giant DSLR fuckhuge camera, I want just a decently portable one that's subtle but still takes good shots

>EXCUSE ME BUT THIS OTHER REVIEW PUT THE PRIMES MARGINALLY HIGHER AT SOME APERTURES AND IN SOME PARTS OF THE FRAME >:(

The zoom might be better at further distances and the primes at closer, or vice versa, we are not proferred that information.

Did you miss this bit too
>the decency level we set about 39-41 lpmm and the best fixed focal lenses have been able to exceed slightly 80 lpmm
>our list of record-breakers the Voigtlander Apo Lanthar 50 mm f/2 E (81.0 lpmm) and the Sigma C 65 mm f/2 DG DN (82.7 lpmm)
>Sony is the best at longer focal lengths – at 135 mm it exceeds a very high level of 80 lpmm... an outstanding lens, providing you a sensational image quality at every focal length and across the frame

lmao.

>BUT IF I PUT THE SUN IN THE CORNER OF THE IMAGE AT THE RIGHT TIME OF DAY I GET SOEM FLARES AND GHOSTING >:(

Is the flare and ghosting a problem in pic related, or do you not see how it could be used effectively? You need such careful positioning to trigger flares you either move 1 degree or wait 10 minutes. who's shooting into the sun with it in the corner of the frame without WANTING ghosting/flares? retards, that's who.

It's worse on the short end and sort of keeping up at the long end... not worth it, especially since 200mm is a largely useless focal length except for creepshotting niggas at wedding receptions.

I really want to get a DSLR again. I've had a mirrorless for a while now, and while it's great, I miss the OVF quite a bit for some reason.

What system would be best to invest in? Ideally I want a system that's still made lenses for. I'm guessing both Canon and Nikon no longer make new bodies or new lenses for their DSLR platforms? What am I left with, would Pentax FF or APS-C with its IBIS be good?

and there's still more high quality stock for less money than pentax shit. pentax has never made exceptionally sharp or aberration free optics. nikon has. the majority of M, F, A, and FA pentax lenses are absolute garbage. and about half the DA and D FA lenses as well.

pentax doesn't just have very few (basically no) lenses, they don't have any good lenses. unless you're a "pentaxian" and call everything you shoot sharp because you just spent $500 on a 25 year old lens design from a company that went out of business because they were unable to deliver competitive quality.
