Can someone please post anti-gearfag anti-GAS images and posts to finally cure me of GAS. It's affecting me to the point I wonder if I even like photography, which I used to when I had just one camera and no choice but to shoot on it.

What kind of photography you do where the one you have with you now does not the job? Camera is a tool for taking photos. Only get tools you actually use. A camera kit, a lens for your niche, relevant accessories like a tripod and lights. Beyond what you need is junkyard of useless paperweights.
>>
>>4024987
If you have money buy whatever you want or can afford. Solve your gas by selling the equipment you don't use. If you don't use equipment you don't need it.

>tfw my gas isn't cured because I'm so worried about getting the most value for my money I never actually buy anything in case I fuck up
>haven't taken photos in about 4 months
>>
>>4024987
It took me a long time, and going through a lot of gear to realize how little I actually need. In hindsight, renting (or buy/sell used) all kinds of different stuff would've got me there a lot quicker. It took far too long to figure out I simply don't like certain genre's of photography too.

When I was super budget constrained, I always had "what if I had xyz gear?" in the back of my mind. It was hard to say how different gear will impact my shooting, until I actually used it. The financial investment involved also led me to holding onto or trying to justify gear that simply wasn't for me (I spent $$$, I better use / enjoy it).

Once I got to a spot where I could afford anything I wanted, things got a lot more clear. A setup like the Canon R5 + 28-70mm f2 could get me 99% of what I like to shoot, but I would also feel comfortable with any brand/sensor size and a handful of primes (28/50/85) too. Marginal spec improvements (af speed, resolution, etc) don't really interest me anymore at all, pretty much everything in the last 5 years is "good enough" for my needs, so any desire to upgrade gear has to come from something significant.

it is a type of photo though, it has a distinct look to it that is reproducible

I just bought a Lumix G9 and I am upgrading from a hacked GH2. I work doing concert/EDM type shooting and was curios how much of an upgrade can I expect with this camera. What do you suggest for me to get for doing hybrid shooting. I got the camera because my next event is a big music festival. Any help would be appreciated.

Don’t listen to the retards. They enjoy hating other peoples cameras and <insert competing brand> more than they enjoy their own cameras and shooting with them.

Sony is great, but as you said you can’t afford to switch to anything else at this point so there is nothing to suggest. You’ll have to make do with what you got. I had a GH2 a long time ago, I didn’t like it that much. Considering it does 4K you’ll end up with better results at the very least. What iso and lens were you typically using on the GH2?
>>
>>4031070
I dont remember the iso that I was using. This is the first time going out since covid. I was using a 20mm 1.7 and a 25mm 1.7. The 25mm basically did everything I needed it to.

>>4031078
Well it’s got to be an improvement over this

I dont really get what you're asking for OP. You already bought the camera, you're meant to ask for help before you do that, but regardless, you made a good choice. You know what you need more than we do. I really like sony OP and I think you made the best decision based on what you want to do. Not all us sonyfags are the same.

use the 50/60 fps modes for better AF in video and as wide aperture as your lenses permit.
It's otherwise a most solid all-rounder.

That's the beauty of the free market and the reason humanity evolved so fast in the last couple centuries. In the free market you have selfish incentives to improve everyone else's lives by producing quality products and services to compete with everyone else doing the same. That's what really generates wealth and pushes us forward. The more governments suppress the free market, the more society stagnates. Socialists are the biggest brainlets in the world, they can't grasp the concepts of incentives and have a warped view of how things operate.

I got into photography a little over a year ago
and have been using a T3i that my Mom gave to me, along with the two old Canon lenses (58mm and a 250mm) that came with it. The whole package has been wonderful, and I've been able to do great things with it.

While I don't see it lacking significantly anywhere, I've saved up some money, and thought it would be worth asking if there was a worthwhile upgrade/thing to buy with about $2000.

Also, what's something you think every beginner should know?

Cheers :)

youre literally a newborn. that camera will be above your payroll for the next 5 years so stay humble and first learn how to use it.

id advise you to get old russian/m42 lenses for portraits and such, theyre still super cheap, but since you ask wildlife, a fast focusing EFs tele or zoom then. keep the money, shoot more.
>>
>>4030604
Thanks for the horse. I like it.

Essential wide the 50mm f1.8 is never wrong. Might as well take a look at the 24-70mm or the 24-105mm.

Zoom wise I'd suggest the 70-200mm f4, preferably with IS or the 70-200mm 2.8. Also the f4 without IS is very sharp and has great IQ and rendering.

>50mm f1.8 is never wrong
its dogshit. also shit bokeh. better get an old 50 1.4.

>>
>>4030744

this shit right here. T3i is same sensor as a 60d and has the flippy screen too. Loved my 60D when I had it.

10-18, Nifty Fifty and probably 55-250 are all you really need for a budget Holy Trinity spend the rest on travel to take pictures. If you wanna ball a bit, do the 10-18, 50 1.4 USM and 70-200 f4L IS. the 18-55 IS kit lens that came with it is also decent, I used one on an underwater 20D rig I made with an Ikelite housing.

also, little secret but the Sigma EX 24mm 1.8 is a good alternative to the Nifty Fifty as it gives an equivalent 40mm FOV and they can be had fairly cheap.

This is one of my favorite pictures ever. That's Newton's wife on the right. There is so much going on here besides

>muh n00ds

Look in the background at the building and how perfectly spaced the windows are in the door frame and the fact they are exposed just as well as the interior of that room, he had to wait for overcast light outside to get that shot. read that again, dude waited for the light outside for a small portion of the photo to get to a point where he could expose for both indoor and outdoor light. that is some next level camera autism.

Newton was a G just period. He's one of my influences most definitely on my work.

Should I buy a camera for beginners or actually a good one?

I know nothing about photography, but it sounds like a cool hobby.

I teach photography, and I have 8 XT1's and primes with adjustable apertures that I lend to students for at least a fortnight as part of the course.
In my opinion, probably the best camera to teach manual, all the function dials are neatly seperated.

But it really depends what you want out of your photography and thats up to you to discover.
Have you got an idea on where you want to start?
>>
>>4011836
I started with a canon 450d and a tamron 18-200mm combo. Learnt a lot by using those. Maybe, even better would be a Pentax or Nikon whatever cheap dslr, so you could try vintage lenses without an adapter.

You could making large prints and easily sell them. The idiots on this board will hate on anything, like the guy saying nobody here is talented enough to paint, which is just silly to claim. Keep up the good work at least you’re producing results.

This photoshop look has been done before many many times. But so what, everything has been done before. You probably could print and sell some of these photos but you really need to get some more image quality out of the photos first. It may just be the upload but the photos look compressed, pretty soft, and low res.

I would do it on an old action camera I took apart if I still had it. Raw capability. And full spectrum (filter on back of lens). You could then use a simple small prime.

yes, aps film provided lower picture quality but i kinda liked that cartridge thing. in canisters, the film can't gather dust or fingerprints or scratches. also scanning is easier.
>>
>>4028654
In a world before digital, APS solved a lot of problems that consumers had with 35mm film:
1. Tricky to load
2. Tricky to store
3. Couldn't rewind the film to switch films mid-roll
4. Couldn't record metadata
5. Easy to get dust on the negatives

The main downside, obviously, was that it was a slightly smaller negative size, so a little bit less quality and a little more DoF and so forth. But people had been fine with 35mm in the early days of 35mm when 35mm gave you lower resolution than the first crop of APS film, and most people had been fine with 110 and disc film which have MUCH smaller negatives, and it was mainly aimed at the consumer market, so it made sense to value keeping the cartridge size small over keeping the resolution high.

Honestly, if digital hadn't come along to thoroughly and completely trounce consumer-level film and camera sales nearly overnight, APS could've been a really big seller. But it did, so it wasn't.
