How about the good old heart-shaped berkuh "filter"?
>>
>fun and artsy

Dangeruosly reddit, but I see what you mean. Some options include:
- low con and high con filters
- diffusion filters (see pro mist / glimmerglass or putting stretched nylon pantyhoes in between the lens and the sensor)
- star filters (as mentioned above)
- streak filters (to give you streaks of light like you might get from anamorphic lenses - see Escape from New York for examples)
- you can also buy variously shaped prisms to put in front of the lens to give interesting effects -> triangular and hexagonal prisms on long lenses (think 50-85mm or more) can give interesting effects, doublings, mirrorings, etc.
- pieces of fishing wire across the lens can do something too, as can split diopters or broken pieces of magnifying glass

Hope you have fun

True, there's really no comparison between Spotmatic and most (or any?) APS-C cameras. Haven't tried the viewfinder on the K-1 though. It should be a lot better.

Top: Spotmatic with a 50mm lens, bottom: K10D with 35-80mm zoom @35mm.

I use the O-ME 53 on my K-3, the viewfinder is almost as big as on my K-1 vanilla

This is the tenth gear thread and I'm sorry for that, but I would like to focus our attention to how to get good cheap lenses or bodies.
For example I need a new lens for my Olympus Mark II micro 4/3 but prices from stores are still high as hell, I've tried to check on e-bay and fb marketplace and it seems like there are quite a few cheap options in my area, but I'm afraid of being scammed buying lenses without having the opportunity to look at them, make sure they are in good conditions or even trying them.
There are some good online stores that sells used gear in good conditions, some place trustworthy when it comes to quality in second hand?
Also general tips thread to buy gear at a convenient price for poorfags like me

The result will be unremarkable actually. No different from the results on the initial R camera.

You can't draw additional detail out of a lens that is unremarkable by simply increasing the resolution..

I think the ability to get focus at 1.2 may be what he's referring to here.

I'm on the fence about the 50 1.2 as a low light lens. mpb has one for $1029 and it's in my cart.....but so is the r6 and an rf/ef adapter.

fucking ridiculous canon wants $350 for the battery grips for the r5/r6 and there's no aftermarket grips anywhere.

In the market for a mirrorless, my first thought was to go for broke with an A7R IV but I think I've landed on an A7 III with a 24-70 mm F2.8 GM and either a Sony 70-300mm or Sigma 100-400mm. Going to buy it all preowned since I can evade taxes by purchasing on this one site online that somehow just does not give a shit about collecting 10.1% extra from me. Just waiting for the A7IV release to drive the cost down further on the A7III.

not a bad choice if you want to limit yourself to two lenses

I'd maybe go for 56 + 33 + 16, but then you're talking about more costs and one more lens to add to your bag

Bought a "new" Fujifilm X-T3. But it seems a bit sketchy to me. The plastic wrapping is not the one I usually know from Fuji and it didn't come sealed. What's also strange, there is an additional Fujifilm note saying "Due to changes in supplied accessories, the camera now ships with the strap clips and covers attached, and a clip attaching tool is consequently no longer provided."

I checked shot counter and it says "1" after the first image I read. There are also no signs of use. But that it isn't sealed is strange. Any danger in using it or should I send it back and buy from somewhere else?

A few months back, there was a "Post your camera gear" thread, and I decided to limit my shot to just the cameras I've actually used in 2021 so it wouldn't take me all day to photograph them, but that started me on a quest to actually take a census of all of the cameras I own, and THAT started me on a quest to actually USE all of the cameras I own.

The total number of cameras is roughly 100. I'm roughly 62 in so far (although a big chunk of those are film cameras and I haven't gotten the film back yet).

But I thought I'd make a thread of the shots. First off, Canon Canonet QL17 GIII

Polaroid 360. Pretty much the pinnacle of the pack-film Polaroids. It really sucks that I won't get to shoot much more with this camera--I have two more boxes of pack film and then I'm pretty sure I'll never get to shoot it ever again (unless someone makes an Even More Impossible Project to bring pack film back).

It really sucks because I absolutely love the look of Fuji's discontinued pack film. And it still works even though it's been expired since 2014 (cold-stored the whole time).

Canon PowerShot A3300 IS. I found this in a thrift store the other day for fifteen bucks, and it's kind of interesting because apparently Canon cheaped out on the lens and made up for it with software. When shooting at the wide end of the lens in JPEG it looks normal, but when I shoot raw (thanks to CHDK firmware) it's damn near a fisheye and I get a significantly wider field of view. Kind of a neat effect.

VTech KidiZoom. Of the two shitty pink digital point & shoot cameras targeted at 3 year old girls that I shot with this year, this one was definitely the best. Still not very good, though.

This one also has games, but they seem to be slightly more advanced than the ones that >>3939019 has. Also, looks like it's legitimately 2MP, which sure is nice.

Sony H300. Absolutely awful image quality. It fails at startup if the lens cap is still on the lens because it has to extend slightly and it can't when the lens is capped. Specs look good, but they're basically a lie because the shitty lens and shitty sensor aren't really giving you anywhere near 20MP worth of image data. So, standard Sony stuff.

I picked it up at a thrift store, and the EV compensation (which you have to menu-dive to find, naturally) was set to +1. I did a file recovery on the included memory card and found the previous owner's vacation snaps (no nudes, boo) and they were all one stop overexposed. I wonder how long they'd had that +1 set and were wondering why their photos always came out a little too bright.

Film or digital? Can you actually see a difference between the two?

There's a lot of people blowing a surprising amount of hot air around here, but can you fags ACTUALLY see the difference between a picture taken with a digital camera or a scanned negative?

Pretty sure my F-mount Nikon can mount Nikon lenses, also Laowa and Samyang ones.

>>photography is 90% subject 10% lighting
Maybe, but my hot take on that is that 90% of the time, subject matter is not a valid thing to critique. In my mind, it's rare to find a "bad" subject, as long as you have a good execution of your photo of it

>as long as you have a good execution of your photo of it
Then in your opinion photography is 90% lighting/composition, which i agree, subjects are for the cattle.

You are completely wrong in everything and also contradict some points

It's an impressive lens, considering the year it was made in. The lens uses that weird focus by wire setup the Canon use for a few of the very first lenses of the autofocus area. 600 F4 the 300 2.8 and a very nice 200 1.8 all use the same Focus motor.

When I bought my 200 from Henry's, I made sure that it was a pristine example that hadn't been used heavily and it came from an old guy who bought it thinking it only weighed 3 lb not 3 Kg so you barely used it.

And then Cannon decided to stop offering repairs on a bunch of these cameras and started selling all the spare parts that they'd collected for that on the open market and I'm I'm in mind to focus motors for it brand new off of eBay for $300 each. Fucking bargain.


I had a brief interchange with an eBay seller years ago on Taiwan who is trying to sell the 1,200 he had and he mentioned that is Focus motor was acting up a little bit and I told him that the ones from the other lenses as I mentioned would fit in this lens.

One guy who owns one of these lenses has a winter place up here near me at Whistler BC. I think he's a bigwig in the some kind of a camera company Ted I think. He phoned me up later and offered me a thousand bucks for each Focus motor but I told him that I'm going to keep at least one for my 200

Quite a few companies could duplicate this optic. When was a company called astrophysics which makes refractors and occasional maksutov telescopes for astronomers. You should go at Boeing Surplus, I dug up some old glass left over from some project oh, and it was the exact same rear flicktype called anomalous dispersion Flint that they needed to use to make their tiny astrophysics stowaway 4.9 93 mm telescope.

I have enough in the four sheets that I've got that they could probably make me and eat or a 10-inch version of this one but it would probably have to be slowed down to F 6 or so.


A few specialized telescope companies could make a maksutov that's that fast but of course it would have the infamous donut bokah effects.

The only current lens that I have that would get close to this one is my 1,000 m m f 5.6 Zeiss Mirotar. Unfortunately, the damn thing has a Contax Yashica mount on it.


Or actually have no small amount of talent when it comes to building things and Optics is something I've just started on in the last few years. I just built myself a couple of 12 in Newtonian telescope. Thing is if you want to do this hobby all these old people who took this stuff up 40 or 50 years ago are all dying or dead and their kids are going through their collections of stuff and selling them off for pennies on the dollar. I'm asked myself a huge surplus of Pyrex blanks all the way up to 18 in, and from an engineering firm that I helped my wife's friend get a glass desk from for her house, they were using a bunch of 4 by 8 2 in thick Pyrex sheets made by Corning as a place to put their engineering diagrams on saw horses and didn't want these anymore and didn't realize just how expensive this material is now. A friend of mine worked at the Port Mellon pulp Mill , and I'm taking a tour through there during one of their big shut down when they were reengineering and rebuilding whole bunch of the production line

And I come across pile of glass that they'd taken out of various places in the production line. All of them were circular inspection windows so you could directly view the process oh, and while I was standing there they put a few more down. Quite a few of them were Pyrex from 6 in 18 in in diameter. Then they started bringing out larger ones that were much thicker and one was a 24in window that was meant for a pressurized reaction vessel that contain caustic material. I think that was a window that looked into a pressurized vessel where the reaction with the wood fibres and the black liquor causes the lignum in the wood to be lost just leaving the fibres behind for the hope. These ones had inspection numbers written on them and one of them dated from nearly 30 years earlier and the inside of it was slightly crazed from being exposed. And when I saw the General Electric materials label on it oh, I got excited because this meant this piece of glass and a few of the other ones were actually fused silica not the less expensive Pyrex. They were going to just dump it and they were handling it a bit carelessly so a few of them got chipped and one actually got broken because they dropped it while they're handling it. But all pulled there's over 30 of these little bastards there and I had to convince my friend to load them into his truck so we could take them off. This was 12 years ago oh, and he recently asked me if I still had them oh, I had traded we're giving away a few of the smaller ones in the 6:00 and 8 inch range but I kept all the larger and more expensive material ones. A university asked me if I wanted to sell them the 24in blank is he wanted to research size telescope for the observatory Down Under but the price they were offering was only $2,000. My guess is that General Electric would sell this for the region of about 12 to $15,000US now. If I can find a proper corrector, I could build myself a 20-inch maksutov

What are you operating on today?
>>
>>3953072
Currently I have 4 commercially made Maksutov telescopes from 3 1/2 to 10 inches.


I plan to build at least one big one around 11 or so cuz that's the biggest one that my Mount and Observatory could easily hold. Those rough bits of optical glass aren't suited for refractive Optics so they become Newtonian reflector or possibly a big cassegrain

Missed deadline by a day.

Does anyone here watch this channel?

It's not so much about photography or photo gear, but it's more about optics in general, which is still highly relevant here.

Well, technically they had their assistants do it, but the point is, they had both technical and artistic know-how. You need both, it's never enough with one of them.

Don't beat around the bush, to be known as a great photographer you need marketing schemes, unrelated charisma with either the public or executives and characteristic physical appearance.
If you want to be a great photographer on your own you only need to really, really like your own pictures. Someone who also likes them will always like your work because you also do.
