Street photography of individuals is a violation and I'm tired of pretending its not. Its like being a paparazzi for civilians, hard to imagine anything lower.

Counterpoint, yes it is. Being in public means you have no reasonable expectation of privacy. If they don't want to be identifiable, they can wear a hat, sunglasses, or a mask. Masks are super fucking normalized now. Don't get your panties in a twist.

Leicas are great, but so are every other camera. They had the 35mm special sauce in the 30s-50s, then the world caught up. That said, I'd love an M11.

Is photojournalism the most pathetic genre? It is filled with bunch of sadists who are forever on the look for miserable shit so they can make money and a name for themselves. Think about it there's no photojournalism without miserable shit so that shit makes their career possible so in an indirect perverse way they must desire more misery so can pay their bills.

Why does that photo still make people seethe so much? That photo is the truth of this scumfuck evil planet. How many people/kids are taking their last breaths right now? How many of them are facing extreme injustice and how of them anyone can save? People live in apathy and die in apathy other than extreme rare instances when they're posturing. If we could suddenly become aware of every horror that is happening right now we would blow our brain out instantly. And this what Kevin Carter did. I would say he was way more sensitive and empathic than every other posturing "humanistic" photojournalist with a perverse desire for "change" and """hope""" in humanity.

This actually came out pretty cool

It has been 3 months since I stopped doing any photography. I feel like I have "shot everything" in my area. I've walked up and down about every street in my town and I've covered a lot of two other nearby towns. I've been to the local parks, the state parks. I've been on day trips and I am bored. I feel like there is nothing new out there to shoot or I need to travel at least 4 hours to get to a place I feel I haven't thoroughly shot already.

How do you guys keep finding new stuff to shoot? Or if you're not, how do you keep it interesting?

>I guess I have this feeling that if someone sees my instagram and goes "hey didn't he post another picture of the same thing 3 months ago?" the photo isn't exciting anymore. I think that's probably not true.
social media has truly rotted your brain. you are poisoned by obsession with novelty for engagement. log off for a while and shoot what interests you without regard for how it will be received if you post it
>how do you keep it interesting?
Set some norms or limits on what you can do

It can be anything: a focal lens, some time of the day, using tripod only, only shooting red things from afar with a macro lens at midday...

dont do the thing nobody ever thought not doing
Set up challenges
Pretend your canera is busted and can't adjust the aperture for the whole day for example
start a project like shit of the day
document 365 of your bowel movements from the same angle and present them as a series.
you can get wild with and see what curry and taco bell affect your work.
Seconding project. It's the only way and there are endless possibilities.

Find something that interests you, that can be documented photographically or staged, and figure out a way to share it with others: either in space, in a book, on the internet, or whatever.
You can do anything. You could:
>photograph a room over and over again from all 4 corners to the center.
>document clouds
>research dinosaurs
>retell the /p/ experience photographically
>set fire and document the consequences
>be friends with the crows
>document someone's work
>search something

Look at contemporary photo book publishers and note the projects and approaches you like. Don't waste your time on trivialities, you can spend all your free time on photography if you want.

Is it worth the hype? Thinking about picking one of these up for 1k. I have a Canon R5, but I want something portable and unassuming to always have on me for documenting daily life with my family.

$966 USD, specifically. I can't find anything cheaper, unfortunately.
Phone camera pics look a bit muddy with all the computational photography and small sensors. Seems like a huge compromise coming from DSLR/Mirrorless.
40mm seems a bit tight, but I'll check it out more.
I liked my griii a lot. really nice camera, built quality and menue wise and also the operational quality. Same with the filters... just solid.
Only let down for me was the missing view finder. I just can't get happy with just a display. The optical I never tried, because I won't pay 300€ for a tiny piece of glas and plastic.
Other than that it's great and sometimes I miss it
it's really nice on days when you really want something portable. But those aren't most days for me so I sold mine. Phone is good enough for "those days"
Try the TTartisans 28mm VF. No brightlines but close enough for rough framing. $40. The Nikon NH-VF28 is the nicest VF I've used for a GR. It's perfect. You can find them for around $160.

I keep buying and selling GRs... I've had the 1 and 2, now the 3. Way back in the day I had the teensy sensor GR Digital II or III, I forget which.

I need a new monitor, what should I buy?

Previously I had a VA Ezio which was perfect, you put that thing in sRGB mode and it is (was) perfect, prints will be what you see on your monitor, plus it had an app that automagically changed profile of your monitor depending on the program you were using (like, you bring notepad on front and it will switch to text mode - provided you assigned that mode to that program, you can do whatever you want).
So it would be nice to have these 2 things again...

Do the Ayylienware AW2724DM have a txt mode?
I bought a phillips 27e1n8900, and I love it. I would highly recommend it if you have the budget. It has an sRGB mode but akaik it doesn't have the capability to change the profile based on the program.
I have mixed feelings about the Asus stuff…
Currently driving the PA32UCG-K and while the colour accuracy is great, the look and build is solid, there are some minor nuances but the biggest gripe I have is the wake from sleep… if it does wake, you have to furiously wiggle the mouse into it wakes up, can take up to 30 seconds, or if it doesn’t, you have to reboot the monitor.

I experienced similar on an older gaming monitor several years ago too.
check out pcmonitors.info for recommendations. I've always used them to decide and it's always worked out for me. barring that, going with a Dell Ultrasharp in whatever resolution and size you want is probably a safe choice. for photo editing, search for a high percentage of sRGB coverage and ideally some sort of sRGB display mode for convenience.
probably a fucking eizo.

OP of the first photo, and I agree the second one is comfier. I don't think there's a "better" way to take a photo and every different photo here is gonna capture the photographer's emotions, which will be different. I wasn't thinking of coziness, but rather the dramatic neon cityscape that Shinjuku is. To the second photographer, keep it up man, I enjoy your take on the scene just as much as my own!

Cheap gearfag deals with only products under $60. Bundled deals like a camera and lens for under $120 counts. The NX doesn't have any lens for cheap unless they're bundled unfortunately so I'm using a cheap vintage lens I adapted.

Instagram is nothing but the low resolution photo cope for pseudo photographers, you can't call yourself a photographer if you use Instagram only. Maybe you're a content maker, but not a photographer, because if you make lowres photos then you're creting content, not a photography. Photography is the highres files able to be printed (or film rolls). Shooting with a cheap camera and posting on Instagram is just a cope. You don't post your highres images, exactly because you know that your kit lens can't produce anything worthy. And even if you'r know how to get a pro quality from a kit lenses (which is real), you'd still have lack of skill, of taste and of experience, that's why you don't post highres. If you don't have an archive with high resolution version of photos then you're not a photographer and if you don't have a place online where your achive is posted - then you can't call yourself a pro. I will consider you a photographer only if you have a personal website or an account of flickr, behance, 500px or any other other high resolution photography platform. I will not check your instagram page even if you will post it. I don't care. Go make efforts to create something being worthy posted in 2000+ resolution or don't even talk to me.

Instagram is also dead because of trash men like this invading it.
Those people are everywhere because they are right. It’s also your fault if you get robbed after leaving everything unlocked in detroit. You share a world with “people” that have less self control than the dumbest pitbull dog and more evil in them than an angry chimp. Wishing they would do better is like blaming a seagull for shitting on your head when you should have worn a hat.

Feel entitled when you advocate for fixing their disorder or removing them from society. There is no fix for psychopathy and low IQ scores, so…
Rapists are literally the dumbest criminals. View them more like animals and you’ll arrive at a sensible working worldview.
Humans are animals...

What motivates you to take pics?

For a while I enjoyed taking pics even tho I wasnt very good at it. At one firday night at 3am I realized that it wasnt for me so I sold all my photo gear. Recently just purchased another just so I can have another shot at it. For the first like 2 shoots it was good again, I felt like I was curious again of finding new stuff and new ways. Took my friend out for a shoot a few days ago and I can already feel the same feelings creeping in... What is this? The idea of taking pics and having an unique perspective still gets me going but in the end I feel like its just pointless to take pics.

Turns out quality gets p fucked up if i dont resize the pic and oversharpen.

I usually do this, but i crave more. Dont want to do shitty social media tho.

Ehh doesnt motivate me. Also what bothers me is that everyone literally photoshops the shit out of every shot, like changing reflections and removing objects and stuff.

How do I take it this seriously without doing it for a living?

I was actually pretty close with this girl but drifted away. She began drinking and smoking heavily also every time we met she literally talked about the past, nostalgia and sad shit. We talk like 3 months and even thats draining sometimes.

Finally... After almost a decade, Nikon has started to make Zeiss and Leica tier lenses once again... As someone who is invested into both Nikon and Hasselblad, I hope Nikon keeps this up, otherwise I will have no choice but to consider Sony or Canon for my secondary system - and I do not like the sound of that idea whatsoever.

What are your thoughts on this lens, future lenses like this one and the future of Nikon?
>makes the sharpest lenses ever
>puts tiffen glimmerglass infront of it

sharpeness is overhypened. as long as the bokeh falloff looks good thats all i carea bout.
also I own the sigma 135mm f/1.8 version where an ftz adapter lives on, i dont see the need to get this one, other than maybe weight. but even if i could get 1k for my sigma i still have to find another 1.2k to pay for this 1kg lens.
If this pushes down the stupid high price of the 105/1.4e then great. 135mm is too long half the the time.

i've been wondering how to categorize the progression of cmos in mirrorless, starting with canon and fuji.
some boneheads say "better low light bc larger pixel pitch lol" and some say "higher resolution means obviously better in low light teehee"
what's actually correct seems to be the tuning of the sensor/pixel readout. according to photonstophotos, the best value (in my budget) cameras seems to be eos r and x-s10. even though the x-s10 sensor is bsi and newer than the 30mp sensor, that old sensor captures lower light (iso can be cranked higher) with similar noise by at least 1 stop (12800 in x-s10 vs 25600 in eos r), and dynamic range is similar at 12800 in photonstophotos experiments.
my point is- cmos tech has NOT changed much since the 5d iv, probably even before that if you look at x-t2 vs x-t3/x-s10 dynamic range.
what exactly is holding up sensors/pixels reading higher dynamic range? where can i read some eli5/tldr level research?

i'm fine with it, but the question stands. an analogy that comes to mind is the lack of progression in solar panel tech. i'm just asking what's the technical reason, out of curiosity.
not so much the dr, but the low light capability.
Oh I see, I couldn't say for sure, but I think there is just no incentive to invest a lot of money into the R&D when camera sales are either stagnant or only showing slow growth. I think we're probably well into the realm of diminishing returns with the current processes and technologies used to create the sensors and you'd probably need to develop an entirely new process. You can see a similar rate of diminishing progress is computer processors which are technically very similar to camera sensors.

I'm starting to think your website there is bs, is there any info on their methodology?
Lenstip and OL attest the snoy a 5ish ev vignetting at least, and I found no other source that gave the canon more than 2.5ev
lenstip measured -2.5 in the corners at 24mm f4, exactly in line with TDP's results.

optical limits disables not just vignette correction, but the distortion correction too, ie, it's meaningless, you're always going to use distortion correction, and that -5 is compared to canon's -12 in this situation.
