the "2D drawing shopped in an irl photo" thing originated from mid 2000s's 2ch/japanese otakus and got exported to 4chan with the waifu stuff
i myself made a bunch of them with other anons when i stil hung out in the anime boards in 2009, we were inspired by the japs' works we saw on danbooru/pixiv, the shops were crude though and i used a super shitty tourist canon point and shoot
so i was pleasantly surprised when i learnt tumblr/ruskies took the shop to a more elaborate level

also, this gimmick is what originally got me into photoshop/photography

Nonsense, S5 colour and highlight latitude demolishes the 5D classic and any of its successors.
>>
>>3768435
the color accuracy gets really nasty when you push it's limits, and why wouldn't you just expose right?
Just shoot on Av or Tv if you can't handle M.
>>
On most digital cameras you are expected to expose for highlights to ensure the sensor is not clipped as those details will be unrecoverable. This means that the darker areas of the scene must be pushed in post to ensure a balanced image. This is the opposite of a colour negative film where the shadows should be exposed for as highlights are not blown on colour negative.The Fujifilm SuperCCD handles far more like a colour negative than any other sensor. This was why it was so popular in wedding photography to avoid blowing out the bride's dress in bright sunlight. It can also be used to effectively shoot into sunlight or strong artificial light without clipping.

Exposure triangle:
>shutterspeed
>aperture
>sensitivity

With a slow shutterspeed of 1/10 and an aperture of f/2 at ISO 1600, your exposure is the same as f/5.6 and 1/40 at ISO 25600.
2 stops slower lens + 2 stops faster shutterspeed = 4 stops higher ISO = 4 stops more noise.

Keep in mind none of that is requiring any ultra fancy gear, pretty much all somewhat recent cameras can do ISO 1600 and 1/10 second shutterspeed and f/2 primes aren't exactly expensive lenses either.

More modern or higher end cameras produce some pretty clean images at ISO 1600 (in that example) to begin with.
You can still run a noise reduction algorythm over it to reduce noise at the cost of some sharpness.

You should check the tools/plugins from DxO Lab (Nik Collection), some work better than Topaz.
For example i recall the Sharpening tool being much better with Nik it's not even funny, Denoise i think Topaz was better but they had different methods, Nik had specified a couple of ways of doing it which worked better in some situations.
Also fuck Topaz for pushing auto AI shit, they reformatted and made some of their tools worse in recent iterations, tried and tested, for example DeNoise 1.3.2 is superior to DeNoise AI 2.0.0.

>In Waffenruhe, Schmidt shows West Berlin shortly before the fall of the wall by combining portraits of youths with images of non-specific sites bordering the wall and the wall itself. As is characteristic of his work, it is the arrangement of the individual photographs and the use of high contrasts — the interplay and dialogue between the multi-layered images — that gives the images their distinct meaning, revealing the correlation between historical events and individual biographies.
>Schmidt evokes a world of ruptures and absences that eschews a confident, comprehensive point of view. The images work with Schleef's text to create a brusque, entirely individual perspective on the fragility of human existence.

The Argus C3 specifically? Relatively slow lenses, slow max shutter, not a great rangefinder mechanism (relatively short base distance), and also separate viewfinders for focusing and framing aren't as fast as combined. I don't think these are dealbreakers though and if you like using the camera, then by all means.

All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

No advantage from 32bit in regards of 24 bit but definition of your signal. You just get more clarity because your signal gets more details.

The real secret is to get in on the ground floor of an agency or studio as a staffed videographer/editor/whatever. I graduated with a film degree and got in at a marketing agency of 10ish people being 'the video guy' who does every aspect of video work for clients who need it, meaning I plan the shoot, write the script, shoot the pieces, record the audio, edit them, color them, everything. I think the industry is going to move towards this pipeline. My company was sourcing the video work to a freelancer, but the guy was incompetent (or competent) and ended up charging them out the ass for revisions, so they found it to be cheaper to hire someone inhouse. Same thing happens with game studios, production houses, even some film places. There will be bigger agencies where you will probably have specialization, where someone might be JUST a DP, or JUST an editor, or JUST a motion graphics artist, but the idea is the same. It's not until you probably hit LA or NYC where you can be hyperspecialized in your job market. For comparison, I work in VA, not in DC though. I feel like freelancing is only viable when you're in a huge metropolitan market where there's enough clients for smallish freelancers, places like NYC or LA or Miami or Austin or Atlanta. If you're not in those cities, try to get in with an agency or a studio or a post production house and work up.

Does anybody have experience with using mobile phone gimbals? I've been considering getting one but I'm not sure which.
Pic related is the one I'm most likely to get right now (the DJI OM 4) but reviews said that the app you have to use with it downgrades your camera resolution which sucks
>>
>>3766006
any good third party camera app will "downgrade your resolution" as your phones stated resolution is achieved through AI interpolation
>>
>>3766058
>>3766006
I don't have that one, but I can used mine with any camera app. The gimbal app just has some features like tracking objects and shit like that, but you can stabilize video recording with any camera app.
>>
I use the OM3 quite often just using the stock iPhone camera app. Don't care for the tracking features.
The stock app can do timelapses and hyperlapses and normal shooting and so on just fine.
>>
I bought an OSMO yesterday on Black Friday, returned it today. Nice stabilisation, but the app killed it for me. iPhone app presumably fine based on youtube videos etc, but the Android version is gimped.

- 30FPS locked frame rate (due to Google / Android not allowing third party apps anything other than 30FPS apparently), so if you want more than 30, you can't use the DJI app nor any remote features of it i.e. it's a stabiliser only. Also explains why Android version has no slo-mo, because 15FPS looks like shit.

- For fuck only knows why reason, the DJI app can only save to native phone storage on Android, NOT SD Card. DJI forums show complaints about that going back over a year, and despite DJI responding by giving non working instructions to change storage for the app, and then eventually admitting phone storage only in those same threads, they still list it as being able to use SD Card on Android in their FAQs. That's been pointed out to them multiple times but they just don't give a fuck.

Summary - If you're an iPhone user, it's good. If you're Android and you JUST want a stabiliser and nothing more and don't mind having to use your phone screen for everything (even the record button on the OSMO is tied to their app) then go for it.
If you're Android and want the OSMO physical controls to work (record, zoom) and / or any of eth trick software features like tracking, lapse etc, then you better like 30FPS and have plenty of room on your phone storage.
