Do you have a photo printer? If so, what have you got and how did you choose it? Which printer would you get now?

I had a "goddamn" moment a while back:
>be me at family gathering
>grandma whoops out family album
>look at 30 year old prints taken with shitty cheap cams for hours
>decide to print a few of my pics the next day
>even sharpen for printing, export to cmyk, all the jazz
>mine look worse. $5K worth of gear mogged by a 30yo film point and shit

How is this possible, /p/? Why does digital suck so bad as soon as it gets printed?

Yes, IPF9400 (stupid big printer).
The best thing you can do for yourself is following a few rules for basic printing:

1. Authentic inks are important due to better quality control with colour accuracy.
2. If you're not using ICC profiles, stick with the printer manufacturers papers (Epson on Epson, Canon on Canon etc). Select the paper type you've purchased.
3. If available, download ICC profiles for your printer to match the paper you're using. Ilford, Hahnemuhle etc have ICC profiles available for most common photographic printers on their website.
4. If your printer doesn't have an ICC available for a paper stock, a custom profile can be done, but they cost money, generally not worth it unless you're printing a lot (profiles typically $50-100)

This.

When I got my first nifty fifty (well it was a crop camera so really it was a nifty 35) I couldn't BELIEVE how much better my photos looked after the crop, instantly. And it's the cheapest fuckin lens, too. $125 new on ebay.

>>3917697
That's how I interpreted it too
>>
>>3917697
That actually makes less sense. If OP was wondering what lens to buy he'd have to at least say which mount system it's for and what he wants to use it for.

It makes more sense that he's asking about the lens in the picture. Maybe he doesn't know what a bridge camera is, or he knows and wants to know what kind of optics they put in that particular bridge camera.

You better be trolling.

Hi /p/
A friend of mine gifted me this camera and lenses. I’m not a photographer so I’m wondering where do I even start with all this? Is there anything I need or should buy? Most of the stuff on YouTube is just people talking and I feel filtered. Thanks.

That looks like a panasonic G85 (or possibly G7), either way they are very similiar. Both are great for photo and video. I have a G85 and it's great. That's extremely nice of your friend to give you that, especially with all the lenses. You got a crazy deal.

Where to start? First if you completely new to photography look into the basics of the exposure triangle (aperture, ISO and shutter speed). A tutorial like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_B8pVoANyY.

Once you're done that I'd recommend a tutorial on your specific camera, to get to know it's ins and outs. This one is really good for the G85 (he uses a G95 but it's basically the same) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3bt0zLR4zY. Even though it's 2 hours long I'd highly recommend watching the whole thing, you'll learn a lot.

After that just start shooting, the more you shoot the better you'll get. But like everything it comes with time.

Once you're comfortable with the camera and taking pictures, I'd recommend downloading a raw image editor. I recommend darktable as it's free. Then look up some tutorials on that.

He should be fine as a newbie with this setup, the apertures of the leica lenses are low enough combined with the ibis that he should have enough to learn and take photos. Will they be super top quality, probably not, but in general new photographers wont be skilled enough to get those shots anyways.

It is a very good setup for both photo and video, across most applications except for long telephoto, for a new photographer to learn the hobby. It is way, way better than what most people start with. Just take it out and shoot with it, and try shooting in different modes to learn and understand what stuff like aperture, shutter speed and exposure do, and learn as you go along. That is really all you need to do.
>>
>>3919290
You should find, download, read and understand the user guide for the camera. Follow the instructions and go take photos. With practice (just shoot things you care about) you may get good or at least get lot of snaps (of things you care about).

Recently I was thinking about how hard it is to "make it" as photographer these days. With everyone having a smartphone and instagram I feel like the value of photography dropped almost entirely. Doesn't matter how good your pictures are. There's way too much noise to stand out and algorithms won't help you either.
All that made me procrastinate and binge watching movies over past couple weeks which sort of gave me some new ideas. If photography is dead why not just switch to videos? It's pretty much same but
>Youtube is still a good platform for creators where your work can actually get discovered and get some traction
>Prosumer cameras are getting very close to high end "pro" equipment allowing you to shoot LF on a budget
>Editing hardware/software is very affordable too
>Producing videos takes way more hustle than stills so the value still there
>Normies with their phones can't even into horizontal shooting
>More career options and ways to make money off it
Is there any reasons not to? I don't think so. We just entered golden age of cinematography and it's about the time to jump on that train before it's too late like it is with photography.

"Photography is truth. Cinematography is truth 24 times a second"

Alright /p/, I’m new to photography and I want to buy my first camera. My main requirements is that it should be portable but still take better photos than my iPhone. I do not want to exceed 1100$. I was thinking about starting with the Sony a6000, is it a good choice still in 2021? Or should I with the more expensive a6400 or any other camera? Any advice is appreciated.

what I did is shoot in aperture priority or shutter priority until I got the feel for how both worked before I tried fucking with full manual. Figure them out individually and how they affect your image and exposure before you try managing both at the same time.

Why is colour photography considered new and not an artistic medium until William Eggleston started? Colour films never had this reputation, why does colour photography?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>3919358
Because Eggleston was a rich fag who knew the right people. Saul Leiter once said in an interview that there were always people who liked color photography and he wasn't a boundary pusher for doing that. Ernst Hass is actually the colorist hero who paved the way for photographers like Eggleston. Hass was a mad maximalist who shitted on photoworld's boner for minimalistic photography by constantly producing maximalist color work in 50s onward this is why he never got recognition he deserved in his youth.

Colour photography was difficult to make back then, the dye cast process was a tedious process and was the only method for producing accurate colours. It was also that peoples general knowledge of colour photography was minimal to nonexistant.

And also holiday snapshots and other consumer-type photography.

I love how, historically, your comeback has always been "see me after class." You think it implies that you're the teacher and I'm the student, but what it REALLY sounds like is that you're the bully who's going to suck my dick in the bathroom after.

Your photos are all out of focus in this thread and are very clearly bad, blurry photos shot with cheap lenses, old cameras and literally no technique. Quit presenting yourself as an expert in anything except "how to be the worst tripfag on the second slowest board on a cartoon nazi frog enthusiast website."

ITT, you post pictures taken with shitty digicams.

Everything still matters like composition and lighting, but you have to use the shittiest digital compact you have, bonus points if you don't have to resize to get under 1000px longest side. Digital artifacts are not only welcomed, they are encouraged. OP picture has two dead pixels.

All gear discussion ITT should be about finding the shittiest gear and shooting with it.
