Where can i buy 8x10 film with an ISO of 6 or lower? Im making an 8x10 camera and i want to use paper negatives on a manual lens that has no shutter. Think wet plate photography where the lens cap is the shutter.

You can use any cheap film, whatever's the cheapest, probably Shanghai or arista if it's still around.

It's only four stops of speed you need to lose. You can make a higher contrast developer like D19.

A higher hydroquinone (or ascorbate) ratio to metol (or phenidone) will give more contrast, as will higher levels of potassium bromide etc.

Then just calibrate dev time and/or dilution with a few tests
>>
>>3705518
Also you could use an ND filter like an ND16 or ND32
>>
Also there is bergger printfilm continuous tone lab film which is iso 3 on b&h
Arista Ortho Litho 3.0 film which is very cheap, you'd need a low contrast developer to get continuous tones out of it
Inkpreas media regent royal hard dot camera film, as above

You can reversal process regular b&w paper.

I've been a photographer for years (05')

I've shot sony for like, 2-3 years now

Last friday was the first time I saw another pro using the brand.

So I like sony, I think they're doing good, but in my admittedly anecdotal experience, they aren't making inroads quite as much as people think they are.
>>
>>3704973
>they aren't making inroads quite as much as people think they are
That's because the camera stockpiles sold between 2010-2013 were absolutely massive.
The dwindling sales from 2018-2020 won't change that ratio. Even if Sony is dominating the FF sales, it won't be significant compared to the existing stockpile in circulation.

However, RF and Z is faring even worse, and is much, muc, much much smaller than the total amount of EF and F cameras.

6 out of 7 of the last weddings I've been to the photographer used Sony.

And now it's the official gear of the associated press too.

Sony have cemented themselves as the only reputable brand for at least 10 more years.

Can yougive me some experience stories of you going out for street photography for the first time?

Especially curious about people who normally are socially awkward.

How did it go?

I read Agenda 30 (which Canada signed onto) in its entirety. I can tell that you haven't. I have read every presser the UN has released in the past 2 years, it's spelled out in plain English for you.

You really think conservatives are just "evil" and don't want to help anyone? That's a lazy, childish way of thinking. You're being used. Minorities are being used. The poor and sick and homeless are being used. They literally wrote books of tactics on how to use people, and the media is acting on it daily.

Whatever, you'll figure it out. It's already too late anyway. Enjoy the ride.

OP if you're really that interested in college education, why not start with an online associates in Photography? Probably attainable for as little as 10k. Maybe even get a B.A. under 30. 6-9 credits at a time with a little saving and you can definitely pay all cash.

I accidentally created duplicates of 162 images when applying a style. I solved this by removing all the images from the lighttable, deleting the XMP files, and just reimporting them all.

In this case it wasn't a problem because I hadn't done anything else, but Is there a simpler, less destructive way of un-duplicating a large amount of images?

>>
>>3705353
I could be mistaken but i think the camera serial number is in the exif data so you may want to be careful with hot goods. People can search for their stolen camera IIRC

Also for a beginner i would probably not recommend a Sony. The ergonomics and menu system are such that you kinda really need to know what you're doing already. They're great for professional use because they're technically quite capable, but desu i never had that much fun using them and never felt particularly inspired to use them. I got some great shots out of my old Sony and the lenses are super sharp, the jpgs were terrible so i had to use a raw workflow which required more time color grading than i would prefer.

Really it comes down to just getting a body and lens you can afford and just working the shit out of it till you feel like the photos consistently come out as you imagined them. A 35-50mm focal length is a good place to start.
>>
>>3705356
Yeah that's a good point. I didn't think about EXIF data being mined. Not that I really care about it too much, I mainly just want to take pictures of my guns and adventures. I don't plan on sharing pictures too much.

Do you have an opinion on the Panasonic Lumix G7? There's one for $400 "basically new."
>>
>>3705348
Exactly- "were" and "technicals". when i was 20 or so canon came out with 350D and everybody lost their shit. a dslr with a price point for an average joe, people were raving about megapixels, crop factors, all that shit. for me it felt plastic and small and like a toy.

ergonomics should be most important thing for anyone actually using their cameras.

I started photography in the 2000s, stopped in the late 2000s and just got back into it buying new gear from scratch.
So for me there's a gap between like 2010 to 2020.

Something that really really confuses me is the fact that back in 2010 everyone critisized the companies desperate attempts to archieve higher megapixel numbers while now, in 2020 this critique seems to have vanished.
It was called "megapixel war" and everyone agreed that pushing more and more megapixels on sensors that remain the same size will only hurt the image quality in the end. I don't see anyone talking about this anymore. In fact people seem to admire APS-C cameras having 30+MP now.

Someone explain.

if you open up the lens you're alright though. Hell, you can even stop down to about f/4 without significant diffraction on fullframe.
>>
>>3705003
Before gapless microlenses higher resolutions wasted more space on circuitry leading to less photons captured.

Both before and after microlenses people would not equalize viewing size, leading them to overstate the difference in the former and see a difference where there was none in the latter.

>Someone explain.
Well, when the D800/D80E was released in 2012 people quickly figured out that if you downsized your images to 24mp or 12mp the low light performance was pretty much the same.
Same thing with the a7R in 2013.
>>
>>3704775
They couldn't increase the megapixel count in a sensible way so the shilling on forums stopped and with it the next carrot on the stick was invented for the consumer cattle.
