I wish I could afford a decent constant aperture zoom.
>>
>>3698535
I had a brainfart and didn't read properly, it was the 28-75. But I wanted the 17-28.
Good thing I got it cancelled.

Apparently the 17-28 sold out way back when they sold the batch for 750. I should have bought it back then, because now the grey market shops ask 760 for them.

been out of the digi game for a while, shoot mostly medium format film
I'm in need of a decent work horse digi camera for some client work, doesn't have to be amazing just flexible
thinking a canon 5d mk3 + 24-85~ lens or maybe a nikon d600? any recommendations, I have no idea what the good base bodies are anymore
>>
>>3698540
D810?
>>
>>3698540
D800 is pretty cheap nowadays if you hunt around and it's phenomenal. Sensor is still competitive with new high end bodies, resolution is great, good weather sealing, and 1/8000 shutter speed. Burst mode is slow at 4fps but aside from that it's a beast.
>>
>>3698543
yeah they seem reasonable
I'm selling a mamiya 7 to fund it so I'm thinking I'll get around AU$2k for it and have that amount to put towards a body + lens. D800 bodies are going for around $1200~ so I have $800 for a lens to cover a few bases.
What are the canon L equivalents for a nikon? 24-85/105~ should be enough.
>>
>>3698551
How much are you selling the 7 for?
>>
>>3698556
not sure yet, I traded a guy my x100f for it because selling a mamiya 7 (body only) will net me more than an x100f to fund a solid digi set up
I'm thinking maybe AU$2.5k~
>>
>>3698551
Nikon likes to call out their high end stuff with gold rings.
>>
>>3698558
ill trade you an x100f for it?
>>
>>3698562
not sure if troll or you didn't understand what I said LOL

>>3698559
the 24-85 2.8 looks decent at a reasonable price, or is a sigma or something going to be better?
>>
>>3698535
Do you guys think a constant aperture of f/4 is too slow?
>>
What's a good old 28mm I can use for adapting?
>>
>>3698574
That depends on you and your use case. For me absolutely not, I love the flexbility an f/4 brings, and with IBIS I can't notice any difference in picture quality.
>>
Is there something in the mavic mini weight class coming with DNG photo raw?
>>
>>3698574
It depends on how you photograph. I always tend to aim for 8-11 when I shoot, so for me 4 is alright.
>>

Seconding this question & adding my own.
Does anyone have any experience using a Yashica ML 28mm f2.8?

I'm also looking for a 28mm but already have a ML 50mm f1.7 & an ML 70-210 f4.5, so it'd be cool to have a full set
>>
>>3698657
If you're thinking about the yashica 28mm made for Contax, it's very good! Almost as good as the Zeiss variation.
>>
>>3698662
Yes that's the one

I'm very impressed with the 50mm
The zoom isn't as nice, but produces passable results. The benefit of that lens is just how nice it is to use. Push-pull truly is wonderful.
>>
Trying to resist the urge to go buy a 24mm lens. Local camera store has a decent deal on it. Don't have anything wider than a 50mm.
>>
>>3698665
I've actually only used it on the contaxes it was made for, so I can't really speak on how it converts. But I guess it should be fine. What sensor do you have?
I have the Zeiss 50mm 1.7. It's probably my favorite lens. Old zooms tend to be pretty bad, but push/pull zoom is great!
>>
>>3698694
APS-C Canon, 50mm is kinda tight for general purpose which is why I'd like the 28
>>
I have an EOS M50 with the M series 22mm f2 pancake lens’s. Love it. I really enjoy using 50mm equivalent on my iPhone so I want that in my next lens.

Is there any major downside to getting an adapter and buying an EF 50 lens? Cheaper overall than buying the M series 50 mm equivalent.

Whelp, bought the nikkor 24mm f/2.8. Finally feel like I've got a decent set up now with 24, 50, and 90.

For sure! That 45mm equivalent will be great! :) you actually motivated me to get an adapter for my mft

Only on Canon. Nikon and Pentax does well with f/4
>>
>>3698855
It's the slightly earlier AF-N, so same lens but no distance chip. I also have a 50mm 1.8 but it's the D and I've got a last gen Tamron SP 90mm macro. Just switched to full frame and I think I've got a pretty decent set up! Looking forward to some nice sharp photos.

Does software count as gear ?
What do you guys think about DxO photolab ? It seems to work really well with my 90d raws meanwhile Adobe doesn't even have a profile for the 90d.

I have a D7000 and want a 35mm lens. Might get an FX camera in the next two years maybe. Should I get the 35 f/1.8? or the older 35 f/2?

Get the 35 f/2. Full frame is such a massive leap you'll definitely want to upgrade down the line. First high ISO shot on full frame I wanted to kick myself for wasting time on APS-C. It's a revelation.

long time no see /p/.
probably does not exist but worth a shot, nikon FF sensor, looking for a semi-decent telephoto lens that will be used in the 400mm+ range for $800-700~, will buy used as usual.
was looking at the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM for $700 which really doesn't seem very good even on 35mm, what's my options here?
>>
>>3699065
Just checked keh and they have a few options in your price range. Go take a look.
>>
>>3699059
Whats a fair price, im seeing 250-290 range on ebay

I'm a hybrid shooter and also a Sony user.

Should I go for the A7III or the A7RIV

What's the best 35mm equiv for mft?

I should add: best and cheapest. The Oly 17mm us really cheap but I have a bad track record with cheap oly mft lenses.

I'm looking to get a new digital camera as an upgrade from an entry-level canon DLSR. I am thinking of using it for part-time work in the future (nightclub photography and other gigs with not much experience required). Do I need to buy a professional fullframe mirrorless? I am looking at getting a Fuji X-T3 but I'm not sure a crop sensor will give good enough results for this.
>>
>>3699236
Depends on how much you want to blow (money-wise)
You can do okay with a DSLR, but for nighttime gigs you might as well get a fullframe camera, now it depends if you have the money for a BSI sensor or a fast fucker like a sports camera with a low MP sensor (12 to 18).
Honestly it comes down to how much money you have, in terms of workflow a BSI mirrorless camera will get you an easier time, especially in how you can compose on the EVF with exposure meddling and focus peaking.
>>
>>3698674

buy it.
>>
Pretty new to photography and don't trust the thousand consoomer articles on the internet about it. Got a Nikon 5100 and 35mm lens, plus a tripod. Anything else absolutely essential? Would also appreciate resources to learn to improve if anybody has suggestions.

thank you I just looked, I saw a tamron which was a little interesting but no other real good options, though it's just as expected.
400mm+ telephoto glass really requires you to put in some money if you want decent optics with autofocus, it hasn't changed in the last few years.
>>
>>3699244
A kit zoom lens would be nice to have, also get a sensor cleaning pen and lens cleaner brushes/pads. Some comfy messenger bag, and a water bottle.
>>

patience.

also cambridge in colour is great.
>>
>>3699065
>Nikon FF
Cheap decent option is the older AF 300/4 lens, maybe a 1.4x TC and use crop mode.
Not so cheap decent option is the 80-400 II, don't know how well it plays with a TC.
Alternative not so cheap decent option is the Nikkor 200-500/5.6

Shitass option you should never consider let alone spend money on: Anything Sigma telezoom (Tamron 150-600 is better isn't really by that much)

Following up to my last question:

Do i need 36mp for full frame or is 24mp fine?
Both are going for around $650-750 on ebay
750 is newer despite lower number

I went D800 and I've been very happy with it. High ISO performance has been great, focus is blazing fast, images crop really well, and the viewfinder is wonderfully big and bright. I didn't see any need to go newer.

Is having 36mb RAW files an issue for you at all? I guess i could just buy more HDD space for it.
Do you know why these higher end cameras have a CF slot? Is it better than SD?
>>
>>3699307
Depends, low light performance of the 750 is famous but for resolution the 8XX series has been pretty good. There's been debate over the noise profile, the 7XX is somewhat known for its "film-like" noise/grain but i would rather have more resolution than slightly less distracting noise.

The raws are bigger than that. They're like 70mb. Space is cheap and so are fast SD cards so I don't mind. I mean you're getting more than 10,000 raw files for each terabyte of storage.

As for CF slots, I think they used to be faster than SD cards of the same time period. Original CF cards seem pretty useless now though. For still photos though SD cards got real fast and big.
>>3699325
>>3699331
Here's a high ISO photo. Downscaling from the higher resolution sensor makes a difference as well.

That looks pretty great. I have a 50 AF-D that i'd want to try out, and that looks promising.

Slight tangent, but what about the 810, is it worth the few extra hundred bucks just to get non-AA filter I've heard mixed thoughts.
>>
>>3699307
Pentax K-1
>>
>>3699345
That was actually taken with a 50 AF-D. The D lenses are some of the best deals out there.
>non-AA filter
The D800E doesn't have the AA filter if you can find one for cheap. It's such a high res sensor though that it doesn't make much of a difference.
>>
>>3699349
the first image the 800E looks pretty nice on that fence but I could live with the 800 if I had to, maybe adjusting sharpness as needed.
>>
>>3699331
In my case, for urban and city stuff, i would rather have better low-light/SNR than resolution, a step or two is practically half an hour more of shooting past blue hour, which is great.
For wide angle stuff and details with telephoto, that depends on the quality of the lens but yeah in that case resolution is more important... if in a tripod, if handheld then it's low-light/high ISO performance. Wide Angle City stuff sounds like borderline architecture, that needs resolution.
>>
>>3699360
The low iso raw files sharpen really well. They're so high res that it's tough to oversharpen them and notice any kind of artifacting without a 100% crop. If you're feeling tasteless you can basically max the slider and when you downscale it'll be damn hard to notice.

Technically gear, anyone have any solid info or resources on finding a good photo editing laptop? Hopefully one with a colour accurate screen and decent graphic and processing capabilities for mostly Photoshop and Lightroom. I'd like to get to into some video work too.

just get a high modern end thinkpad if you want something that will last you a long time.

>>3699393
I don't personally have one but I hear the attachable keyboards are quite good.
>>
>>3698724
The lens will remain 50mm on that adapter if it has no glass in it, on canon aps-c it will have fov equivalent to 50*1.6 = 80mm

That DF is so sexy.

What's your favorite camera? Which one really gets your goat?
>>
>>3699394

This but only with a decent IPS screen, most of the entry-level and mid-range Thinkpads have garbage ass screens and shitty trackpads. If you want something with some balls and a good screen find a P-series made in the last couple of years there's even a version with a Xeon chip in it. They are made like a brick shithouse and you'll kill yourself trying to kill it.

They do last forever, I have an old Pentium 200mhz MMX Thinkpad I play DOS games on and my track car has a T30 in it.

Regards, /tpg/.
>>
>>3698303
I use a Minolta srt100 and a Nikond40x. I have an emergency nikonEM but I hate it. I use vintage glass on the digital one.

How shitty is my gear?
>>
>>3699718

Right now the flavor of the week is the Yashica T2, but if I had to sell it all and keep only one body and lens it would be the Photomic F with the 35 1.4 AIs

It's so uniform and tanky and every time you fire it, you hear this tactile "thwop" of the mirror coming up and the shutter firing, it's the same reason I love the RB67 which feels like shooting a bolt-action rifle.

The F I can go anywhere and shoot whatever I want and no one can say shit because I look like a pudgy college student in film class. It doesn't feel like a camera it feels like a family heirloom or an old Ferrari, Nikon really turned the camera world upside down when they released it in 1959. Some of the best images in the world were made on these things. The fit and finish is glorious on them, the seals are made of cloth not cheap ass foam. I can smash Charlie's skull in with the prism finder and take their picture afterward for the Stars and Stripes.

Let's be honest, I fucking suck ass but the F is the most fun I've had with an old film camera I don't care if my pictures suck ass I have a great time with it and if you've been thinking of getting one, do it they're cheap.

The Df is nice too, has all of the same merits (and public perception) of the F but digital. I love them all, every one of those bastards does something different and I do use them all, but if I had to shoot one camera for the rest of my life (assuming I could get film indefinitely) it would be the F.

EM is unironically based. I shot on its cousin the FG when I was in college. EM with the Series E 50 is the best Nikon carry piece you can buy, it's so small. You can fit it in your pocket. Don't have to worry about exposure or nothing just point, focus and shoot.

SRT100, those were cool too. Hope you got the 58 1.4 for it. Old Minolta glass is sexy af

D40x is the only camera you need.

I had one of those eye AF Canons years ago, a 7NE and I loved it. Did my brother's wedding on it. Very underrated technology. I don't know why it didn't make the jump to digital.
>>
>>3699726
Dont particularly enjoy the aperture priority and auto only mode in the EM. Had to look up the FG seems nice. The FG20 seems like a real treasure. You got lots of good cameras. I got decent glass all around and something nifty to sell. Fuck digital I want to invest in 120 film.
>>
>>3699731
>shutter shock

Focal shutter pleb detected
>>
>>3699731

Considering the F weighs as much as a house and needs an oversize permit to be transported across state lines, I don't think mirror slap is going to affect my photos.

The mirror in the RB67 is the size of a small cellphone and slaps like a Mexican novela chick and even at 1/30 (on the 50mm) there's no shutter shock.
>>
>>3699742

I've shot every format from 110 up, 120 film is the most practical. You don't need a big ass RB to have fun on 120.

The one thing I like about the EM is the auto mode, you can focus more on the shot than what you need to make it happen. Program modes and full auto isn't always a bad thing. Most of the time in my automated exposure cameras I am either full auto or aperture priority. The T2, is fully auto and only controls I get are to turn the flash off. Makes great images.

When I'm just walking around my carry piece is actually the T2.
>>
>>3699753

Well, I've done it all up to 5x7 at least.

You can find Kodak Brownies that shoot 120 film. Mamiya 645s are affordable now, I paid more for the Photomic F than I did for my old 645 1000s

I recently got back into photography after going on hikes with my friends and bringing along my k-5. I was thinking about getting something new and for how I'm usually gonna end up using it a mirrorless seems like it would be the best choice as I don't really shoot sports and I already have the k-5. Would you recommend a sony a7ii or a Fuji kt3? This is probably gonna be a camera I use for a long time before upgrading so I liked the idea of Ibis and a full frame sensor, but people seem to really like the handling and colors of the kt3, and the lenses tend to be cheaper for the fuji as well which is a big deal for me. What do you guys think?

I'm a sonyfag myself, but I would never recommend that camera.
The only mirrorless camera right now with acceptable battery life is the A6600. So that's what I would point you towards.

Tamron is releasing some interesting lenses on E-mount, which are lightweight and highly usable for APS-C at well. That's your affordable ticket.
>>
>>3699809
The a6600 is a bit more than I really want to spend, the kt3 discounted with the kit lens is less than just the a6600 body rn which Is why I was leaning towards that.
>>
>>3699807
But that 70-180 2.8 tho
>>
>>3699816
It's the only one that won't disappoint you in the battery life department. DSLRs can operate the viewfinder without draining the battery, and there is just no way a mirrorless can keep up unless they can approach that ~900 cipa threshold.

I think they can be had for 900 dollars if you register a B&H .edu account.

What's impressive about Tamron and Sigma is they are standardising a new generation of 0 dB AF motors.

Really old cine lenses like the Cooke Speed Pancro, and panavison, what was the mount that was commonly used?

I have seen some that are adapted to pl mount, but some of the cine lenses from the 20's - 40's seem like c mount or d mount. These obviously won't give much coverage on a super 35 sensor.

I've been wanting to find a really old cine lens like the Cooke that I can adapt to Sony e mount for decent coverage.

Any ideas?
>>
>>3700646
Buy a used D800 instead. Upgrading from crop to crop is retarded.
>>
>>3700709
Depending on vintage/series, either Arri Standard or Arri Bayonet. Standard can be adapted to Bayonet, which in turn I think can be adapted to PL (and from there, anything really).
If there exists a direct adapter to your final mount, you'll have to look for yourself.
It's certainly possible, it just takes a CAD file and then export it as STEP and hand it to a CNC shop. If someone went through the trouble to do that and offer a commercial product is another thing.

I know that seems like a weird comparison but I already have Pentax lenses and since Pentax doesn't make a mirrorless the K-70 is my only option.

No, without IS your going to need to shoot at 1/1000th all the time unless your using a tripod
Buy the EF 70-300mm IS USM II instead, more reach has IS, almost identical to L series in terms of sharpness and focuses way faster than the old 70-200 f/4 L you can always adapt it to sony later.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iws0RqitJUc

>>3701632
also consider the EF-S 55-250mm IS STM its just as sharp and a bit cheaper but wont adapt to sony down the road unless you use it in crop mode
>>
>>3701642
Define more power. Do you mean more megapickles? Or do you mean a higher intensity flash?
>>
>>3701654
I mean something with more pixels I can just get a flash if I needed more power. Also want to make sure what's shown in the viewfinder is what ends up in the pic since the d3400 has this thing where a little more of what's shown is taken in the picture.
>>
>>3701656
It's been a while since I have shot on the D3*** series Nikons but as far as I can recall what you see in live view should be what you get in terms of exposure. If you want a camera with a higher megapixel count than your current model, I would first ask why? But I do understand that you have your reasons and that's up to you my friend.
My reccomendation would be moving to a full frame platform from Nikon/Canon/Sony. Take a look at the options from each and make a decision, all three have fantastic full frame options in both mirrorless and DSLR (excluding Sony who are only mirrorless).
The differences are academic at best and I would advise you to focus mostly on what you think would fit best in your hand and produce images you are happy with straight out of camera to make editing easier on you.
Don't worry about your old Nikon lenses there would be no point using them on a full frame Nikon anyway, so don't feel tied to them.
Don't become embroiled in the bickering here on /p/ just pick what you feel fits you best.

But they did. The new lens is actually close to F1,3 and despite this it corrects many of the aberrations better than the DSLR lens.

Your argument would have real clout IF the new lens was less sharp. That just isn't the case.
If gained sharpness, and it reduced the weight by 50%.

>>3702205
Pre-correction distortion is something OVF people care about.
But to EVF people it's a non-factor, and the only thing they care about us post-correction sharpness.

I could argue that the original design focused so much of distortion correction in-lens that it compromised on the other factors like CA.

I've noticed when I switch around between manual and automatic and limited and full focus modes my lens goes out of whack and stops focusing properly. I have to fuck with it a fair bit to get it working again. Is there something I'm doing wrong that's causing this? Does it need to be recalibrated?
>>
>>3702278
Seems like at least it needs a thorough cleaning and maybe replacement of helicoid or focus motor or other parts. Send it in to your local camera service for cleaning, they will tell you if something else needs to be done with it.
I have the older one with screwdrive AF, the gears are super sensitive, I have to be very careful not to leave it in manual so it doesn't rotate the focus ring during AF.

There is still a limit to how small it can be. Sony just happened to make their 85 big, as to not lose face against Canon's 85.

The only two who made theirs small are Samyang and Sigma.

Hey guys, I'm new to photography and, after using a point and shoot for a few months, just got myself a Nikon D7000. I haven't got a lens though. Can anyone recommend me a good, relatively inexpensive beginner's lens for the D7000?
>>
File deleted.
>>3702425
That was a great choice. I'd pick up a 35mm 1.8g. It'll give you an effective focal length of 50mm which is a very natural focal length. A lot of successful photographers shot exclusively with that focal length. It's also weather sealed. Paired with your body you'll get some wonderfully sharp images. Pic related, that lens on a d7100.

Thanks, this is exactly what I'm looking for. I'm new to SLR cameras so I'd like to have something that is relatively middle of the road in terms of specialization. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
>>
>>3702436
Of course. The d7x00 with that lens is honestly a fantastic beginner setup. You're going to be very happy with it.
>>
>>3702278
I have that in Nikon F mount. It is hard to focus, slow and noisy.

Found a youtube video demonstrating the problem.

Thoughts?

Just out of curiosity I checked how much you can get from selling your camera to B&H. Are they like the gamestop of used camera pricing? 'Cause I feel like it's under valuing it by a pretty big margin.
>>
>>3702823
Keh does instant quotes. Check with them.
>>
>>3702831
Keh is way better to buy from than sell too imho. BH is as fair as youre gonna get
>>
>>3702857
I had good luck selling to my local camera shop.
>>
>>3702766
yup. with AF on, it should always hunt and will try to find focus with the lens cap on.
this is another shot but try putting your camera in AF-S, then in AF-C. I had a sigma lens where the AF only focuses in AF-C in my D90, but had no issues with both AF-S and AF-C in my D90.
>>
>>3701656
I went from a D3100 to a D7200 and felt that was a good jump for me. The D7*00 line has full 100% viewfinder that's bright and clear(big improvement over my d3100), inbody autofocus motor so you can use the old D lenses that don't have autofocus built in. The D7200 also has dual sd card slots and honestly was enough of an upgrade that I don't feel the need to go full frame.

For the flash, I bought the Neewer 750II. It's very affordable and was a major boost to my low light indoors photography. It's a very good investment, only about $50 and TTL is basically automode so it's easy to use.

>>3701663
He's referring to how much of the image he can actually see through the optical viewfinder. On entry level dslr, you actually only see 95% of what the final picture will be so you'll get a little more on the edges of the frame.
>>
>>3702882
The issue is like this
>focusing fine near and far
>switch to MF and adjust
>switch back to AF
>lens no longer focuses
>hunts using small part of focus range and gives up
>switch back to manual focus and focus to infinity
>switch back to AF
>AF begins working again
Sometimes it takes a few tries. Switching between limited and full focus seems to fuck things up or sometimes fix them.

meant, no issues with my D80

Checked the manual and figured it out. I didn't understand how the limit mode worked. I was locking myself into focus ranges by mistake. Pic related

Thanks for the help though, guys.
>>
>>3702899
kek, I thought you already know about the focus limiter

Haha, no. I thought it just turned off macro distance shots. I didn't realize it allowed you to set focus range to long or short.

I love the lens though. AF isn't the fastest thing but it's a really nice sharp lens for the $225 I spent on it. Nothing else came close for the money.
>>
>>3702909
yeah its sharp and produces a warm color rendition. you'll notice that if you set it at f2.8, it will immediately change aperture once as the barrel starts to extend.

>Don't worry about your old Nikon lenses
If he was smart he'd be buying vintage F mount glass and just manual focusing it. I had a d3200 and all the glass I bought was D glass or older. So most of it got autofocus when I upgraded.
Unless you're a professional, autofocus is overrated.
>>
>Those rumours about a new EOS-M flagship that will have IBIS
If it's the right price that may be tempting. The EOS M6 Mark II is only about 200 USD more expensive than the GX9 where I live, so if this one is just above that and has that 32.5mp sensor along with IBIS I may just get it instead of a GX9 as a pocket camera.
>>

Yeah good luck charging that on a eBay store with zero sales you fucking mouth breathing ape.

The tokina? I have that lens and its awesome
>>
>>3703021
yup, the tokina. Looked at it when it first came out, and now I'm looking at it again five years later. They say the version 1 optically still better than the version 2?
>>
>>3703013
I have the ver 1 in Nikon mount. It's a nice lens desu. I can't compare it ver 2 tho.
>>
>>3703025
I've got the 2nd version and it's a great lens.
>>
>>3702992
People prefer smaller and light lenses on small sensors.
And lenses can be made really small if the sensor is small.
>>
/g/ here. I have no idea how to camera.
is there a logicalincrements.com for cameras?
>>

Just follow this guy https://www.youtube.com/c/geraldundone/videos

>is there a logicalincrements.com for cameras?
Tamron and Sigma are the value gear for most lens classes.
>>
>>3703155
Thank you. I was hoping for some kind of listing showing maximized price/performance at a number of brackets.

Where do I start with a budget of $250?
>>
>>3703156
>Where do I start with a budget of $250?
Your smartphone.

Quality optics is too expensive for you.
>>
>>3703158
Is there a logical increments for smart phone cameras?
>>
>>3703162
Would it even make sense to make one? Smartphones go out of date after a refresh season.
>>
>>3703163
I don't know anything. I'm utterly clueless.

I was hoping for a chart to tell me what's going to give me the best pictures for a given amount of money.
>>
>tfw switch into mf by mistake and wonder why your shots are all blurry
>>
>>3703156
Used Canon Rebel. Run through ebay for used pnshoots. You look for two things, that they support raw, that they have half decent controls. IE. at least two dials. It's better to get ten year old model that shoots raw, than something brand new without it and no controls at all.
>>
>>3703151

>>3703166
"Best picture" is something largely decided by your own merit.

In the modern age with high resolution screens and HDR and all sorts of nice things most acts of photography get shared in subpar super compressed formats in low resolution.

A camera from 2008 with not be significantly distinguishable from a modern hyperexpensive body under these circumstances.

What distinguishes images is the content presented.
Either way, for the money get a used rebel or better, older body. (A 50D should just barely fit in the budget) and stick a nifty fifty in the end of it.
>>
>>3703176
I'm looking for maximum technical quality, I guess? Like resolution/clarity/megapixels/dynamic range.
>>
>>3703221
For $250 you're not going to be a significantly better sensor than you'd get in a 50D except maybe by stepping down(up) to an entry level camera with an 18megapickle generation sensor that offers *slightly* better low light performance but otherwise doesn't differ much in terms of dynamic range.

For $400-500 you could probably step to a 5D mk2 or a 6D mk1 for better results.

But keep in mind that's by blowing all of it on the camera body.
Doesn't mean much when your lens is the bottleneck.

A nifty fifty is the cheapest entry that's somewhat good.
>>
>>3703156
Bump that up a bit. Get a Nikon d7000 and a nikkor 35mm 1.8g dx. Should be under $400.
>>
Does a compact like an IXUS afford any benefit over using a smartphone?
>>
>>3703237
>>3703279
Thank you anons.

I can find a used Nikon 3200D in apparently 6/10 condition (without a lens) for like $150.

My task is to shoot product photos of girls in dresses. So full body white background kind of thing. What lens do I use?
>>
I really want a mirrorless but I've only got 15,000 shots on my d7500

I need to stop gearfagging
>>
>>3703448
are you a jap? why call a PowerShot an IXUS? anyway, point&shoot cameras have optical zoom, so the more you zoom in the higher the difference in quality between them and phones.
>>
>>3704274
No I'm not a jap but I've always known them as IXUS, I'm not trying to weaboo I thought that is what they were called

$1000 price seems like too good to be true...
>>

It will be a huge fail if they don't use the same new processor form the S mark3.
And a huge fail if they go back to the old batteries.

It's already a huge risk just by removing the RVF.

Which ones did you get anomalous
Also push-pull zooms are nice, but the quality you get from them leaves much to be desired

I would instead suggest a vintage macro
>>
>>3704462
i actually got an extension tube set for $3 at a thrift store so im covered for that. If i find i need more flexibility in that field ill look out for a macro zoom.

But for the $90 i got a hanimex 28, makinon 135, and a domiplan 50 for $20 per piece from the same vendor (all f/2.8 lenses) and the helios 44m for $30. Im pretty happy with what i have, first time ive bought a whole bunch of lenses and honestly, i dont think ill ever need anything else ever unless it gets stolen.
