Canon, Nikon, Sony and Panasonic. Which brand is the best when looking at bodies costing less than $3500? I can answer that!

I have been comparing these brands extremely thoroughly, so here comes result (ranked from best to worst in each category, applicable only to full frame cameras):

> Lenses (all lenses available natively):
1. Sony / Nikon (tie) - 10p each
3. Panasonic - 7p
4. Canon - 4p

> Autofocus:
1. Sony / Canon (tie) - 5p each
3. Panasonic - 4p
4. Nikon - 2p

> IBIS:

RF 50mm f/1.8 - $149
RF 85mm f/2.0 - $499
RF 70-200mm f/4L - $1499
RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 - $499
** Total: $5900

> Nikon
Z6iii - $2499
Sigma 20mm f/2.0 “C” - $649

> the Sony 85 1.8 is just as good and $200 cheaper on bh.
Really? Have you compared them side by side? Looking at charts and the Nikkor looks much sharper. It’s pin sharp already from 1.8 across the frame, similar to Sony’s 1.2 GM.
>>
>>4130278
The mode dial is the least of your worries.

Tell me, does your camera ever get stuck flashing exposure values if you turn it on with the lens cap still on? Does it get stuck flashing a long exposure value after you've been in the dark and not go back to normal until you've toggled modes and switched between live view?

These are the symptoms of impending catastrophic main board failure in the Pentax K-1. Whether or not it will progress to complete failure or remain an occasional glitch is unpredictable. Almost all early models are affected. :^)

Also, do you own any SDM lenses? Your AF motor might fail. :^)

(fuji does not have these problems)

This threads to show the hidden gems that you've found in youtube that haven't blown up yet.
First up we've got TeemusPhoto
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ8tSxi2YrY
This guy is committed to capturing that rainy blade runner vibe but he also shoots on some interesting gear. He uses a Fujifilm TX-1 / Xpan to get wide aspect ratio film shots, also shoots on a Ricoh GR1V and GR3 and a bunch of other stuff.

Next is May Shi
https://www.youtube.com/@MayShi
She does POV street shooting using a bunch of different film cameras, really small channel but comfy to watch.

Another extremely small channel is James Forrester
https://www.youtube.com/@JamesFMedia/videos
He's Melbourne based and focuses on motorsports photography but also does the occasional blog style content in the city, hangs out with North Borders / 7th Era every now and then too.

Show your hidden gems.

"film photography" is in the moment, you have to be there, you and your Sony A9-leveled viewfinder practically photoshops and makes it look like you are watching it on a computer screen, so all you will be taking are "bright" photos in different usually darker lighting.

Film photography is more like hunting because you are in the moment and you take the shot.
>>
>>4129688
>It's IN THE MOMENT bro, because it's not a computer screen! that makes your photos brighter!
You have a center weighted match needle guide or even auto exposure that does the same thing retard

Also most people turn off exposure preview in the dark because it stops down the lens for a continuous DOF preview and then raises the sensor gain to cope. Real photographers have constant exposure preview off and the histogram on, with a key assigned to exposure preview for checking ambient exposures when using fill flash.
>>
>>4129688
Obviously you aren't in much of a moment if your photos are all streets and trees. What are you hunting? Potholes?

The benefits are pretty niche, rolling shutter is not a in vast majority of photographic situations

Unless you got tricked into buying a camera without a mechanical shutter I suppose but what kind of idiot with more money than sense would fall for that lmao

E.g. the rolling shutter of the electronic shutter only Nikon Z9 is on par to mechanical shutters.

>>4130158
Been reading sensor readout measurements for the A1, Z9, R3 where only the R3 falls slightly short of mechanical shutters. I'm looking forward to even entry-level cameras that have no mechanical shutter but reach the rollout of those.

Is this true? Or did some retard boomer upload a lie to the imdb page for One Hour Photo (2002)?

Complete and utter nonsense. Not only is it factually incorrect, how can he make a blanket statement about every single jurisdiction on the entire planet?

I’m sure retards like that said shit like that when film was introduced, that you could only use plates for evidence, and before that they said you would never be able to use photography.

In the real world what happens is that a bunch of lawyers, judges law professors sit down and discuss how a new type of evidence needs to be dealt with. Otherwise how the hell would our legal system be able to function at all in the modern world? We’d be forever stuck in Hammurabi’s time or worse.

I hope someone deletes that bullshit.
Incidentally, that movie is kino. Saw it back in '02. Sy is basically me in 15 years - minus the sexual abuse, had I not been a life-long NEET.
It's a shame that the director, Mark Romanek, only did a few feature films and is stuck doing music videos.

There's no contradiction. If men are fundamentally better photographers than women then it does not imply that there are no great women photographers. Just that the median male photographer is better than the median female photographer (and both will be obviously be mediocre snapshitters).

I don't know for sure if it's actually the case, but I have a hunch that men are fundamentally better at telling stories than women, and that transfers to most creative pursuits.

A bit late to this, but I did not spend any time in the last 3 months to look back on or edit my photos.

So now that I've taken some time to do that, here's what I selected from this year!

Some months are really lackluster, but every one's got at least one or two pictures which makes me remember how I felt back then, or the connects me to the past, so it's a win in my eyes

Starting with January

>Bookfags, what is the best way to create ?
Make shitty prints of your photos with your mom's inkjet printer so you could feel those photos, touch those photos and develop some intimacy with them like they're your childern. Spread the selected photos on a a big fucking table and try to live with those photos for a month or two and keep playing puzzle games with to make many sequences. At the end select a kino sequence. Then open indesign. Make the layout. After making the layout make a shitty dummy photobook.

Indesign is a rather insignificant part of the process.

Canadian dollars. Been posted for over a week, so I could probably talk him down a bit. Photography is expensive and I'm seeing nowhere else to get a full frame body with IBIS and an OSS full frame kit lens for $1000-ish Canadian dollars. That barely gets you a new entry level APSC kit these days.

Is this honestly the best deal that can be found in photography these days?
