Trying to get a fair comparison of the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and Mark III.

For someone who is exclusively interested with photography, is the newer version worth it ? I've heard that the Mark II have some features for photography that the Mark III does not have.

I'd rather save a few bucks if it makes sense, but I don't know anything about theses cameras, never had the chance to get my hands on it yet.

get the II if you don't "need" 4k. I think bracketing and some other settings are gimped on the III.
>>
>>3860954
I've seen people dunk them on water, it's better than the em10 which lacks any!
>>3860985
I thought the mark IV was the plastic one, not the Mark III
>>
>>3861320
Yeah I did more research and the M5 Mark II is a way better solid choice than the M10 II or III
>>
>>3861422
Agreed. I'm looking at the em10 iv to upgrade my epl7 but the em5 ii at only $350 used is a good deal. It may not have the 20mp sensor it still has a higher viewfinder magnification and had the high res mode. Also headphone port and weather sealing. Em10 iii and em10 ii doesnt come close unless you want a slightly smaller and lighter camera.
>>
>>3861948
>a slightly smaller and lighter camera

I wouldn't want a camera the size of a phone to be honest, I like it a little bit bulkier but still portable.

Go for the M5 II, $350 is an excellent deal and a net improvement from the epl7. By the way the fully rotating screen on the M5 II is an amazing feature and it gives you so much possibilities ; if you're into autoportrait for instance, definitely go for it. And the weather sealing and magnesium alloy body will only increase its quality over time. The M10s (except the M10 II which is made out of metal) built quality look a bit questionable.

No.
I don't live in Belfast, and heading out to someplace and risking getting the car hijacked and burned is kinda... hmmmmmmmm
The first night of rioting happened near to where my father is buried, but since then, it's sort of been moving to different parts of Northern Ireland.
I have been taking pictures of loyalist graffiti and signs lately, since it makes for interesting subjects for what is effectively now deserted street photography, lmfao.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-56699716
A freelancer on assignment from a Turkish newspaper got his car fucked up. The other night, a teenager fucking destroyed this photojournalist's Canon DSLR and telephoto lens. It's getting... fucking crazy now. If I was in the "right place in the right time", I would probably take pictures from about as much of a safe distance as possible, but shit's getting out of hand.

I remember the "flag protests" that happened over a decade ago, and the protestors blocking major roads, but alas, I was too young to really be engaged.... let alone photograph it.

Why you are like this bros? This mere mindless consooming of analogue and digital toy will turn your soul into a spiritual desert. Why you aren't obsessive about art? Why do you fags focus on tools and not the artwork?

I'm ok with people with GAS. For one they provide revenue for camera companies to survive. Next is since I'm cheap I get to afford second hand gear.

For the record most gearfags I know shoot a lot which is a good thing.

Anon has already started with his story of his reproved snapshit:
http://archive.nyafuu.org/p/thread/3862461/

I'll go next. I bought 3 Sony A7iii last year. The first one second-hand, photographed a wedding with it, a 8 day hike, a day trip, then sold it because I hated it, bought a new one, used it as a webcam and took about 90 test shots to choose the best lens from an order of 4 lenses, then sold the camera, bought a new one, use it as a webcam and took 7 shots so far to compare the start-up time to the first shot against a Canon 6D. Several private photos since 2018 sit unedited on my hard drive. Edited are only the photos that were commissioned.
True story - the Sony A7iii makes a great webcam, where the Canon 6D sucked at it.

Oh, and image related. My head is not the brightest.

The best camera is the one you put on a tripod to use a webcam for the 16 12 year olds who bothered to watch you die at warzone.

in other funny news op is fag and sony is better than fuji

Who do you think will be the first to make a modern 3-CMOS R-G-B sensor DSLR? It has to logically be the next high-end tech to consumer camera step.

What does /p/ think about IG feeds that are all colour graded the same? I see it all the time. Some call it a style or aesthetically pleasing but making all your pics look the same for that purpose stifles creativity in my opinion. Life is full of colours, yet some IG feeds only consist of three.

So ive been shooting only film for like 5 years now. I love it but its getting expensive and my canon f1 has once again broken down. I still love it and will continue to shoot film but I think I'm gonna finally get a digital camera. I mainly wanna use it for travel, road trips, and backpacking camping trips in the sierras. O dont want a big clunky dslr or id just take my slr with me so I've been looking at the fujifilm xt-4 but ive recently came across a good deal on a sony a7III. Which would u recommend. I love the look of the fujifilm but is the full frame sensor on the Sony really better??

Depends, what's your budget OP ? Do you want to buy new or used ?
>>
>>3861932
If its in good conditions im good with used but also 2k for them new isnt gonna set me back on any bills
But after researching a bit for the last week I think those are my 2 options. I liked the idea of the prox-3 but I dont wanna lose video capabilities especially for a higher price. Ive only found the prox3 more expensive than the xt4
But yeah if u have any other cameras in the 2k range for body and basic zoom lens let me know.

Why did you take this photograph? What did you see in this scene?

I'm not asking that to insult you, it's just that I can't tell why you thought this scene was special, or what's special about this photograph. Try thinking about what makes a scene special before photographing it. If you liked the colors of the sky, try minimizing distractions (in this case, the silhouettes in the foreground) to draw the viewer's attention to the sky. If you liked the silhouettes, there isn't really anything unique about them; nothing about them draws my eye either. Find an angle that better pronounces the silhouettes of the buildings if you can and try again.

There's also the issue of high noise, but that's more technical, and I think the main problem is composition. You can take a good photograph with any camera.

Yes, in the sense that they will quit making and designing new f mount lenses. However, that means that high quality f mount stuff can be had for cheap on the used market.

Correct.
>>
>>3859132
I agree with this dude. I bought a a7 first gen this year mad happy with it. No mirror slap so handheld withouth any effort up to 1/20 1/10 using a 50mm anyway and acceptable iso up to about 32000 but best at 1000 or below pair it with my cannon nfd 1.2 and im happy out.
>>
>>3858994
Take a look at the compacts from ~2013 like the RX1 Mark II or canon G1X Mark II.
I would not recommend DSLRs as the lenses alone come close to $200 for a decent one.


>>3859132
Hearty chuckle
>>
>>3862659
Correction: I meant RX100.

What would be the best choice as my first ever DSLR ? Is it worth paying more for the d7000 if I won't notice the difference as an amateur ?

I plan to use that with the 35mm f1.8g lens

Could choice of lens, it's my go to after 10 years (and I've gone ultra wide and tele).

I have D5100 and it has the same sensor as the D7000, which is stella btw. 2011 Sony sensor which produces lovely looking RAW files with lots of latitude in post. Get the D7000. IF it's not for you sell it and get your money back. In terms of features and functions you will have more to learn, however, it will give you more control.
