Consumer shit. This is for like your gran who wants a nice photo of her husband to remember the times before he shit himself monthly. Nothing I loath more then thrift and second hand shops that sell old photos and peoples left behind photo books. Weird despicable shit. I hope people who buy stuff like that get some fucking negative ohgabooga spirits from the photos of other peoples lives they buy for novelty and make up some shit tier story about their life based on a photo.

Nah.

Ok /p I need your help. I am trying to bond a bit with my emotionally reserved father over photography (pic somewhat related, but he is even older). He never was the type to express his feelings, but now as he is getting older, I fear there is not much time left and I want to make use of what remains. He likes photography and so I thought we might spend a day snapping pictures, similar to how others would go fishing with their father. Boy was that a mistake.

To really paint the picture: my dad is the epitome of a Nikon boomer. He has thousands in dollars in Nikon gear, with a D5, lots of 2.8 zooms etc. He considers a D850 a nice and leightweight camera and despite all his gear I don’t think he ever took a picture worth noting. So on said day I arrived proudly sporting my gear: a Panasonic GX85 with two primes, perfect for walking around and taking pictures while being relaxed. My dad looked at me with a mixture of pity and disgust and asked me why I am using a „womanˋs camera“. Upon my explanation that this was a comfortable kit, he uttered something about me being a limp wristed noodle arm faggot under his breath.

Anyway, he grabbed an enormous Lowepro backpack and khaki hat and off we went. While I tried to be somewhat stealthy to capture the „decisive moment“ on the street my dad just went up into peoples faces and rudely took pictures while loudly letting off sexist comments about everything that looked remotely female. The whole shitshow only ended early because he wanted to go home to micro adjust the focus on his zooms for the 100th time.

So long story short: now that you know my father what camera should I buy to impress him? Fuji, M43 etc obviously are the wrong choice, if I appear with a Canon he will probably just shoot me on sight, but if I try a Nikon he might think I want to one-up him. Maybe a D300? Still big and heavy, but at least I can afford it? Pls help

Lots of people will sell you their cameras for well below market rate. For example I run the XT-2. Instead of continuing to upgrade every other year i simply continue using the XT-2. I currently own 3 models after my new one that I bought in 2016 was damaged. I paid essentially the same price for three brand new used models for the new one.

When buying new, get the seller to show you a shutter count through an upload site. I got some great models with under 10k shots on them.

>2019 I bought a new XT-2 for 800 and a used for 600.
>2021 I bought an additional used model for 550.

You'll find good deals on Ebay if you monitor it, facebook marketplace where people will offload products they don't want for cheap if you can buy it asap instead of them waiting months(especially right now when money is tight for many people)

Probably.

What is the point of paying $1400 for this? Is it just for the size factor?
Isn't it a glorified point and shoot?

Why wouldn't someone pay for a less expensive body and buy a small 35mm lens in order to have more versatility?

If you are practical sure, they are the same.

But they don't feel the same at all, the x-t2 feels like shit when you grab an x100v or an x-pro 3. The OVF is a nice novelty to have, the built-in digital zoom as well. It's much more compact than most MFT cameras.

I wish I had one after trying one out for a day.

Perspective capture and story telling with photos is art. Ten people could live in the same place and based on their experience in that place they’d take different photos.

Not just similar bit depth, but nearly the same dynamic range too. All that has really changed is the resolution.

Neon signs can colour the falling snow for you. So when its snowing find a sign you can stand under and take a pic of the snow falling under it.

I got my sensor cleaned by a camera repairman TWICE. He did a trash job the first time around so I went back and I showed him how the sensor looked and he was like yeah let me clean it again with no extra charge. Now there's a huge smidge across the whole sensor and it looks like this. Can I make this better myself?

Pick a room in your home.

Vacuum the floor, the table, the walls, clean the fan if you have one.

Isolate the room to let the dust settle, close door etc.

With a wet cloth or static brush clean the entire room. Vacuum motor will disrupt the dust and it will settle on your sensor.
Latex gloves and put a cloth mask on to diffuse the air from your breathing.

Don't disrupt any dust and shit. You should be fine.

Also I hope you have a decent sensor cleaning kit. The newer sensors all have a durable glass plate in the front that serves as an IR sensor. The biggest damage people do these days to self cleaning of a sensor is actually breaking the IBIS motors on the sensor from pushing too hard.

One time passes from the swab.
>>
>>3826277
Alternate plan:

1. Go to your bathroom.
2. Start a good, hot shower and really steam up the room.
3. Turn off the shower. Let all of the steam dissipate.
4. Regular camera sensor cleaning procedures.

The steam traps the dust and pulls it out of the air, leaving the bathroom's air relatively dust-free compared to anywhere else in your house with a lot less cleaning.

And since everyone misinterpreted this the last time I explained this, I want to clarify: The steam DOES NOT clean your camera or your camera sensor. The steam has to be gone before you start cleaning your camera. The steam just cleans the dust out of the air so the dust doesn't get on your sensor.

Best way to think it is like this:
If you had no noise in a digital image, you'd have a perfect image.
If you had no grain in a film image, you'd have no image.

You can say fineness of grain correlates with resolution and colour depth/accuracy like noise does in digital, but in principle grain and noise are fundamentally different.
"Grain noise" for instance would be fogging of the film, due to radiation or temperature or old age or whatever. But you can't call actual, image forming, information carrying grain, "noise".

I'd rather have primes for wide angle, standard and portraiture focal lengths.
The brighter lenses give better flexibility for darker environments and also for increasing the shutter speed for certain kinds of action (say like waves crashing against a sea shore).

Zooms have a better place in super-telephoto applications, as it's better to use them for all sorts of stuff where you want to photograph a distant subject (like a bird) or photograph something without getting close (like a ship, shoreline, mountain or building).

I can forgive wide-angle zooms, that go between 8-35mm equivalent, but what puts me off about those zooms is how dark they are compared to a prime. An f/4.5 wide angle zoom might be good for a variety of landscape shots, but in urban environments, having a f/2.8 or better gives you better performance when you're in the shade of a building.

>>3820395
This right here. I personally have several primes between 14-85mm and use zooms for anything requiring over 100mm.

if you can only have one i feel a zoom is going to be more useful. I dont really need the extra speed a prime gives you in most situations.
