SONY A7IV WATCH ALONG THREAD #1

Be ready for the announcement of the new Alpha.

it's a marginally better camera. a7iii users might be hard-pressed to upgrade, but a7ii users are ready for a generational leap. it's a hybrid so it's going to be lacking in some respects otherwise it wouldn't make sense for sony to have a dedicated photography and video line.

>>3953883

let's hope sony is able to ship a large amount of a7iv's so current models drop in price. the cpu market was totally fucked w/ bitcoin miners and scalpers during the latest nvidia and amd launch, and that drove many consumers to purchase older products resulting in higher prices for last generation products. if you can afford the camera, i'd probably look into getting one soon. i've been reading about how economist are forecasting supply chain issues will cause large disruptions heading into the holiday season.
>>
I just want to point out that this is the best web camera in a world where a lot of people work remote and want to look nice
>>
>>3954307
>>3954283
Thanks for the help. I'm actually leaning more towards the A7III after reading these comments and some reviews. I don't "need" to upgrade for a few months so I'm really hoping that the secondary market will get even cheaper with people selling their existing gear to finance an upgrade.
>>
>>3954382
the a7iii is a great camera. I don't feel the need to upgrade mine.
>>
>>3954382
with the A74 coming out at the end of December that might be a definite. After they start shipping, once they receive the a74, anyone who had an a73 would probably dump it for resale. I'm thinking saturation would be in mid to late January

Any advices on how to achive photos that look like from a movie? I think cropping the image like pic related helps. But when I try this it still doesn't come close. Are there any specific settings or AE effects that help?

It's false when you're talking about movies, or movie look, though. They need some shit polish. It's vital when there's need for consistency across shot material.

Why? What was wrong with the medium format general?

>>3948442
>$0.50
That's really cheap for a developed 6x6 frame.

For me the cheapest Ilford is $1.51 a frame, and the most expensive, Velvia 50, costs me $3.12. And developing at home only helps if your time is worth nothing.

hey /p/, it's my first time on your board and I have a really stupid question I can only assume will get shit all over, but I know you anons know your stuff so I'm going to shoot my shot

I know absolutely nothing about cameras or photography, I am amazed at the photos and videos I've seen posted here
I am preparing to start making sit-down "vlog" videos with my brother and on my own, and I need some real dummy advice on what I should get for a fair beginner price

I also enjoy taking pictures of the beach and mountains and nature whenever I can so if it's even possible I'd love something useful for both settings

pic related is from my samsung s10 in cabo, it's probably dogshit but it's the only pic I'm even sort of proud of at all

sorry for the wall of text and thanks in advance frens

All art pales in comparison to music. No one cares about photography, it can't convey emotion like music or literature or touch it can touch the deepest part of our subjectivity. And there are too many photographs already in the world(3.2 billion images are being shared everyday on internet), everyone is a self proclaimed photographer these days, everything has been photographed to the point of utter absurdity and meaninglessness. So why should anyone keep doing photography? Why should anyone bother with photography? If everyone is doing it then it is already meaningless, a rotten corpse and dead. No one gives a fuck about anyone's snapshits except his own, I mean even self proclaimed photographers don't even give a single shit about the most famous and critically acclaimed photographers or so what are you expecting? People can maybe recognize few famous photographs but most can't name the photographers. Majority of so called photographers don't know the ABC of photography's art history so what are you struggling towards? Recognition? Few dopamine hits? Immortality through art? Why are you're taking these photographs? And for whom? Don't say yourself because you share them on internet to get (You)s but when thread will be over or when someone will scroll past your photo on Instagram, after looking at it for 2 seconds it will be forgotten and lost in the gutters of internet, forever. All will perish.

music and literature are dead. everyone is a self-proclaimed artist, writer, music producer, dj these days, shitposting their "art" on /p/, facebook, reddit, soundcloud, youtube. there are 100 trillion words written down every day. why would anyone bother? everything's been written about to the point of meaninglessness. every song has already been made. everyone is doing it and no one gives a fuck about someone else's shitty songs and stories. most musicians these days don't know the ABC of music history, nor do writers know the greats of literature. for whom do they create their art? is it for recognition or for the dopamine shits? it is all forgotten and lost in the gutters of the internet

That's you. I'd just rent whatever and MFT for coverage with the onboard flash that doesn't even clear the lens for an authentic feel when needed. Unless you live in a global fashion city and have at least 5 texts from an designer or magazine editor in your phone right now, you aren't ever getting in anyway.

Hello there. I'm 22, been 5 years into photographing hobby, so finally I think I've got enough skill and gear to make this hobby a profession. In this thread I'll post everything related to this decision, including most of a photos that I'll shot commercial. Critique of my works and any advises appreciated (I'm channer for years, so feel free to mock me or advice kys).

My final goal is to raise at least 17K$ for student loans. I hope to do it in a year or two. The first lesser goal is to raise 130$ for a physical server, that will hold my money in form of bitcoins.

For a first stage I'll bomb local TG chats to find a people who wants to be shot for absolutely free. Thus, I'll make a portfolio. I hope to pass this stage and start asking money for my work in month or so. When I do, the early price will be 80$ per photo session.

What I already tried (and failed miserably).

- Invest money into advertising. Well, this is kinda logical to be done sooner or later, but at the point of year ago it was too soon. I've gotten zero clients and some harsh critique of my previous works. So, I learned to obtain a portfolio, and, as you can see from text above, this is what I'll do for a first stage.

- Offering local coffees, restaurants, etc. to shot their location. This was my friend's idea and it revealed to be terrible. I walked into 40 or even 50 locations, everywhere asking for a manager and offering my service, but got rejected in every single one.

- Investing money into «very serious» studio shooting with decorations and costumes. Epic fail because of the gear I had for the moment. What I learned from that attempt is to never trust cheap shitty gear, so now I invested some money into buying more serious stuff.

- Being film-only photographer. A most shitty idea that could came from my mind. What I learned from that is to buy a digutal body, so I did.

So. What can I say about experience?

I'm tired as fuck. 20 minutes of non-stop shooting when you can't fuck up any little thing, then you should dig good ones out of 300+ frames.

**I didn't used autofocus at all. Depending on af case only, renting the lense was useless.** Manual focus, especially on Canon 70-200 with a comfy focusing ring on it, is just more relieble and way, waaay faster.

From the other hand, 200mm was just exact length I needed, I'd feel way worse with shorter lense like my Sonnar. So I praised the decision to rent it.

Besides everything I finally understood what professional bodies are for. It's now ISO or matrix size. It's the processor. Amateur-grade X-M1 is really, really «dumb» at saving images, and tends to freeze when you shot a long series. Now I not only want more professional body, but I know exactly why I want it.

Last, interesting statistics. Many ultra-pro photographers uses non-reflex cameras… only not Fuji but Sony. I saw at least five Sony bodies at evening.

Anyway, I'm feeling really happy about how it went, and already renewed my website. Thanks you guys for beliving me and all the advises you gave!
