>>3788234 here, bringing it up again because I got basically no input in the last thread.I'm at a crossroads, friends. Do I replace my trusty D200 with a D610 or a D7200? Or do I buy a used equivalent canon (don't know much about them, though the lenses seem to be better at the expense of camera sensors, 6D?) or an A7/A7R with an adapter even?I mainly shoot as a side hobby, I take pictures of landscapes when I travel, cars, planes at airshows, the occasional birds. What I'm really interested in is having more dynamic range and low light sensitivity because I really like interesting lighting and contrasty scenes. Bracketing usually does the trick, but there are a lot of scenarios where bracketing is just too slow and having an extra stop or two of dynamic range would help. Unfortunately I'm an engineer, so I get really hung up on specs and test results. Sites like DXOMark are like crack to me and I get analysis paralysis. So please help me out you judgemental bastards, many of you also are mildly autistic and your input will be valuable to me.>>3789082>a good 18-55mm on a good APSC sensor?I'm not aware of any good 18-55mm lenses, at least when you're using performance relative to the 24-70s available for full frame use as the comparative criteria. It's one of the primary things that makes me want to switch to full frame; the availability of fast 24-70 range standard zooms that aren't soft or filled with CA.
>>3789082Sony a6000 with 16-50. But the lens is not very good, and the colors are awful. I went from there to the x-t1

>>3789467>>3789469You've got to pay more for that. It's a *very* expensive feature to implement. Those Casio digital wristwatches were actually subsidized by the government. When you take away the subsidy, it's like $1000 in parts per watch. Granted, the LCD is just one part, but still like $500 for just that part.

I don’t want to bring the camera to my face just to see if i’m in high speed burst or single shot. I don’t want to bring it to my face just to check the iso. Most of the time i look at it before i take the first photos of the shoot to get the basics right before i start

Hi, should I get a fuji xe3? I want to take super sharp pics, I was thinking of buying the lens Fuji 23mm f/1.4.Would that lens work with any fuji camera?
>>3789741 Like how do I decide the body? It seems all pictures are equally good.
>>3789741xe3 is very nice for its price point pleasantly compact with a competent sensor and great battery life (in my experience, at least)sharpness is dependent on the lens, so look towards reviews for thatany fuji x series lens is compatible with any fuji x series camera, the xf lenses are their "premium" range
>>3789611>>3789670Depends on why you want it. Since you want it for a subjective reason and a dubious reason I'd say no. I would, however, check it out in person and *directly* compare it to a contemporary such as a D600/610. You will find that the Df is barely more compact, and what makes a D600 bigger is the grip and flash. If compact and boxy looks are your priorities, you'd be better off with an A7R than a Df. But if having a new camera that looks old is your priority, there is no other option honestly. I like the Df because it looks cool and performs well but for anything other than looks it is a terrible value considering a nice used Df sells for almost twice what a nice used D610 does.
>>3789082are printers /gear/? what do you guys have at home to make copies of your snapshits? considering buying one of the following: Canon PIXMA iP8720, Epson XP-960/XP-970, or an Epson HD XP-15000any input would be welcome, and since i'm just a hobbyist, not considering anything that would cost nearly a grand or more (not yet, anyway)

>>3790103>>3790122for clarification, I currently have a D3500 and some lenses that I'm fairly happy with, but I live in a rainy area and am looking to get something I can use comfortably in such conditions. I've gotten a quote on my kit from KEH, so I'm using that + a few hundred bucks to get my price point
>>3790124Do you want lenses too for under $1000? You can do a lot less than that if you go with a Pentax and some of their weather sealed zooms. I carried my K-5 II with kit lens through many a rain storms while hiking. Olympus also seems to play up the weather sealing of their cameras, but they are MFT, so I'd avoid that garbage. The chad move would be to get yourself a used 5D Mark II for $450 and an EF 24-105mm f/4L for $450. Spend the leftover $100 on beer.
>>3790090Yeah, it still goes click though
>>3790130kind of a gay click ngl
>>3790129thanks for the detailed answer, I'll check out the Pentax system. Your idea with the Canon 5D is a good one, but I generally don't like the Canon ergonomics and UI; I've borrowed friends' Canons before and something about them doesn't really click with me, I'm not sure what exactly.
>>3790137Fellow (former) Nikon user who doesn't like Canon ergonomics as much, definitely check Pentax out. It's like the perfect symbiosis between Canon and Nikon. You get a shorter flange, awesome weather sealing, backwards compatibility and great ergonomics. Plus IBIS.
>>3790137>>3790138Pentax is cute as fuck, but it is not as good as Canon. Especially a 5DII. I can’t tell you how many mis-metered, mid-white-balanced, out of focus or shutter-shocked (as a result of the shifty IBIS) photos I got shooting Pentax. Canon is popular because it just works. You may have some sort of weird hang up about using a popular camera. It makes you feel like less of the special snowflake your mother assured you that you were. But seriously, we all need to grow up sometime. Get over yourself and get a Canon.
>>3790144I have a Canon fulll frame but it makes me miss my Nikon in terms of ergonomics. The grip is too shallow. I have no experience with Pentax cameras but absolutely in love with the concept.What Pentax do you have? I'm impressed by what Eggy achieves with his camera. Canon is popular because it's way ahead of the competition when it comes to video and AF. Magic Lantern alone is reason enough. Then there's the lens adaptability thing. If Nikon is type O negative of the lens world, Canon is the type AB positive. One is the universal donor, the other can take from everyone else. If I could have the ergonomics of Nikon on my Canon I'd gladly take them. Same with the lack of pattern noise, when I push my Canon I get banding. If Pentax was as good as Canon for video or if I didn't care about video I'd have bought a Pentax instead. The K-70 seems awesome.
>>3790151Lens adapting is a retarded meme. Just use native lenses. Wtf is wrong with you? And no, Canon is popular because their native lenses are so good. Not because of magic lantern or any other 2011 memes. God damn, you’re stupid.

>>3790244Probably. It is the only DSLR to do away with the ergonomically sculpted bodies that SLRs have been developing for the last 35 years.
>>3789891No one? You guys all order prints made or only see your photos on a screen?

The kitlens 15-45mm is a lot more compact than the XF 18-55mm but it's also plastic shit. At some point you have to accept you can't make things like zoom lenses even more compact.
>>3790257>It’s such a shame that camera companies can’t produce a DSLR the size of a film SLR.What kind of film SLR? If you compare a DSLR to a late model film SLR with automatic advance and built in flash and AF they're pretty much the same size. If you compare it to a compact manual advance manual focus SLR like an AE1 sure it's going to be bigger, there's practically nothing in an AE1 compared to a DSLR. >Or just a digital module that you can bolt on.It has been tried many times. It's not commercially viable.
>>3789154If low light performance is a big factor then you are going to do best by getting in the D750/D780/Z6/Z6ii vein of Nikon's line.
>>3790184>costing so much>no fucking buttonsCan you see the red dot? It's a Leica.
>>3790267It's probably not the best idea but since it's got a very long zoom, see how much you can abuse it.
>>3790277>>3790277Yes portraits. That's pretty much all I shoot. Mostly full body shots and I like lots of bokeh.
>>3790290Thanks for the thoughtful reply. What's your insight into the difference between a D750 and a D610? The differences in low light performance between a D750 and D610 seem negligible to me, looking at test images and dxomark (pretty much every comparison is like this, no significant difference). For such a seemingly insignificant difference, I'd rather put the extra $3-400 toward a lens, since with the D610 I was planning to buy a 28-70 f2.8 VR, 70-200 f2.8 VR and 200-500mm VR. Either way, I'm planning to divest entirely of my DX camera and lenses. As for D780 and Z6, well outside of the range of what I want to spend on just a body.

So I got me a Kodak Pixpro az528.It's definitely not a high end camera, but that's perfect for me, I just wanted an entry level something. It's a step up from the low end compact I had been using, and I'm a poorfag anyhow.How bad did I do? Is there anything I should watch out for on one of these?
>>3790313>Although given that mirror less bodies come really small and include all of those things>all of those thingsAre you kidding right now? Mirrorless bodies don't have the mirror or its mechanisms, pentaprism, usually no built in flash. No mirror or its mechanism means things it does have in common with a DSLR can be put where the mirror mechanism would be. No mirror means flange to sensor distance can be made smaller because the mirror angle must be 45° and its dimensions are dictated by the size of the sensor, increasing depth of the body. EVF is a lot more compact than a pentaprism, no flash means no big capacitor, bulb or reflector/optics. If you made a DSLR with the exact parts that came out of this a7 you'd have to add a pentaprism in place of the EVF, a mirror, its mechanism, its motor, and an AF sensor array. Adding the mirror will make the distance from flange to sensor larger, adding the pentaprism will make the camera taller, adding the motor and mechanism will displace other components outward and make the camera thicker or wider, etc.[EXIF data available.

>>3790333The pentaprism, mirror and mechanism are able to be squeezed into an Olympus OM2 sized body made in the 80s. I’m sure DSLRS could be a lot smaller than they are now. Just bang together an OM2 wit the electronics of a M43s. Easy. Battery is a big space user though I give you that.

>>3790086dear god cameras are cool looking. I don't know anything about this but just by how it looks, I want one.
>>3790385>The pentaprism, mirror and mechanism are able to be squeezed into an Olympus OM2 sized body made in the 80s.No AF motor, no AF sensors, a mechanical shutter, no built in flash, no sensor and associated circuit board (much thicker than film), no memory card slots, no usb connectors, rudimentary light metering, a battery the size of a coin, no optical viewfinder adjustment. Take a film SLR apart sometime, the mechanical shutter is a wonder to behold, beautifully engineered and miniaturized, but there just isn't that much inside of the camera. A light metering circuit that a first year EE student can design, a couple of wonderfully complex mechanisms for the shutter and mirror lift, and the gears which advance the film and the exposure number indicator. Most of the camera is empty space without a roll of film in it, and a roll of film takes up a lot less space than a decently sized battery, a sensor, an image processing board, a memory card board, an AF sensor array, etc. Common components like the mirror and pentaprism are of fixed dimensions governed by physics and the size of the sensor, an APSC mirror is fairly small, but a FF mirror is bigger, the mirror must sit at 45° to the sensor plane to direct light upward, setting a minimum size requirement for the space between flange and sensor, the APSC camera can't reduce this distance unless it is to use dedicated lenses. Compactness is a huge selling point for cameras, Sony leans heavily on the compactness and light weight of its mirrorless offerings. Do you think all the marketers and bean counters and engineers just ignore the opportunity to sell the most compact SLR because they don't want to try hard enough and make it smaller? Modern entry level DSLRs are fucking tiny btw, they're easily as small as the compact AF SLRs of the '90s.

>>3790487>>3790417printing and developing and making a photograph tangible is arguably one of the most over-looked and skipped steps in the photographic process.

I'm moving to Japan soon and buying a motorbike to travel, I want to buy one camera for night photography and mainly city snaps but possibly some nature ones but not worried about thatWhat should I go for?I don't want to carry more than I have to
>>3790786Sounds like Ricoh GR II to me (don't get the III, it has no flash).Canon G1X III is a viable option too if you prefer a zoom lens. Avoid Fuji like the plague, if doing night photography the worm noise will be accentuated.
What lens should I buy next after the Sigma 18-35 for my Nikon D7200 ?
>>3790799That's an unfortunate question. You need to provide more context. Are you trying to be more versatile or more specialized? Because if the former, some telephoto zoom like a 70-300. Also are you buying DX lenses or do you prefer to get FX for a future upgrade?
>>3790786i ride a bmw k1300r and a husqvarna nuda 900r, and i use a fuji x-h1 (sorry >>3790787). for travel usually the 27mm f/2.8 is bolted on, or the 16mm f/1.4. hired a r1200gs for japan schlepping with my girl on the back.what do you mean by night photography? if you want a camera that can basically be a night vision goggle, you'll need a big sensor with big heavy glass in front of it. for travel that fucking sucks, especially on a motorcycle. carrying around a buky kit like that in high-vibration backpack or panniers means you'll never use it, and you'll miss opportunities. when i review my motorcycle journeys they're mostly gopro videos or a shitty pocket pentax point+shoot because its so portable.this is where something like >>3790787 makes sense. if it's in a pocket or tankbag, you'll actually use the fucking thing often.
>>3790803I'm thinking of switching to Z-mount by 2023-2024 so I'll probably buy FX To be fair,I only do portraits these days so maybe a cheap 50 1.8D and a zoom like the old 80-200 should the trickmaybe even the 24-120

>>3790102There's also the XF 50mm f2. It's not a bokeh machine though.Also some argue the XF 90mm f2 is better than the 56mm at portraits.However your best bet is the Viltrox 56mm f1.4
>>3790308Then for Fuji I would say there is no other lens good as the XF56mm. Look for some example photos on flickr. It looks pretty amazing and I'm thinking of buying a Fuji camera just because of that lens.
>>3790903XF 16mm f1.4 is the real "muh fooji magic" lens.
>>3790904owning both, yes, and there is some fantastic portrait work done at 24mm equiv, but the average photographer and average client are bokeh whores who think the most important part of a photo is the out-of-focus backgrounds.i prefer the 90mm for portraiture
>>3790910Oh I wasn't argueing from the perspective of portrait just pointing out that other than the 56mm being given magical abilities the XF 16mm is also seen as a special lens.
I bought an x-e2 and a 18-55 lens. Wish me luck, boys!
>>3790946Yes lad. It’s a great combo. I also recommend the 7artisans 35mm f1.2 for proper compact street sessions.[EXIF data available.

>>3789154Speaking of canon vs nikon comparison on DXO, I'm in the market for a D800 or 5D III, and I saw this. Now someone told me that this is because dxomark's methodology is biased toward shadows, and the Nikons tend to handle shadows better where you can pull more from the highlights on Canons. Is this true?
>>3790970Will do, anon. Thanks.
>>3790970>compact street sessions
>>3790970>I also recommend the 7artisans 35mm f1.2 for proper compact street sessions.i agree, it really can't be beaten for the price desu
>>3790975You should ignore dxo dynamic range charts completely. Only good dynamic range test is comparison of two raw files side by side of a high dynamic range scene, then doing +5ev and -5ev. Pretty much all the sensors today perform the same.
Anyone have experience with 135mm or 135mm equivalent primes? I've been eyeing one in particular and I liked that it'd half the bulk of a 70-200 while providing better background separation and also being a pseudo macro (0.3x) lens, which I feel like one open a lot of new opportunities without going down the rabbit hole of macro photography. I already have a 70-200 and 85mm but I feel like I leave the 70-200 at home sometimes just because of the bulk. I kinda like the challenge that a fixed focal length brings but I'm just concerned that 135mm might be too restrictive.
>>3791333Yeah I've got an X-T3 and I was eyeing the 90mm F2.
>>3791337the xf 90mm f/2 is ironically fuji's sharpest and fastest focusing lens. i wouldn't hesitate at all jumping on it; it keeps its valuethere's also a viltrox 80mm f/1.8.
>>3791337It's like a 135mm f/3 equivalent. Not f/2. Not f/2.8. The reason people buy 135mm primes is for portraits, so having such a gimped ability for subject separation kinda defeats the purpose. As with pretty much every piece of Fuji equipment, it's just overpriced, flashy garbage for low IQ "nerds." >>3791340Fuck off, fujishitter.
>>3791342I agree about the products but this guy already has a Fuji.90mm F/2 should provide enough subject separation on APS-C.
>>3791342>deliberately avoid mentioning lens and brand specifics in the question to avoid these kinds of low quality posts and brandfagging>this fucking retard immediately starts shit flingingHonestly this board is such fucking trash. Literally the worst of the worst on all 4chan. Entirely brandfagging, tripfag drama and pointless shit flinging and arguing.
>>3791372Tell you what anon, a f/1.8 50mm provided plenty of separation on a Nikon crop so 90mm f/2 should be decent enough for you. Ignore that guy, he doesn't want to help. Most of the times it's fujifags shitting up the place but you're alright and he's in the wrong (even if he has a point about Fuji gear being objectively inferior for worse prices, you are already in the system so you may as well make as much from it as you can).Buy used, one of the advantages of Fuji is that prices drop like rocks when used. I don't have that advantage with Canon. You can get the 90mm for under 600 used on eBay.
>>3791342>gimped ability for subject separationah, you're one of those people who only likes 1mm depth of field. where the most important part of a photograph is the out-of-focus background.it's a telephoto. they naturally have plenty of subject seperation. even my $50 just-for-fun cheapie M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 R has more than enough.
>>3791385>>3791372Spare me the acrimonious "I'm so wounded by your mean words" routine, fujiscum. I know your tricks.It is a $950 lens for APS-C. Nine hundred and fifty federal fucking reserve notes. Almost a grand. And what do you get....will you get to larp like you're a real portrait photographer using the legendary EF 135mm f/2L? No....no, you will not because the Fuji lens has *more than a full stop less* of subject separation. The final nail in the coffin? You can get a real 135mm f/2 lens for literally only about $50 more, new. THAT is why people say that Fuji lenses are overpriced.>https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1149216-REG/fujifilm_16463668_xf_90mm_f_2_r.html>https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/112539-USA/Canon_2520A004_Telephoto_EF_135mm_f_2_0L.htmlSell your Malaysian wormy-sensor, overpriced crapola and buy a real camera. Doesn't have to be Canon, but you apparently want to larp as a legit photographer, so that's what I'd recommend. You'll save a lot of money in the long run, and your self-respect will also begin to recover over time this way.
>>3791440It hurts to hear the truth when you're completely deluded. It's also only normal for you to project being deluded onto me. You think I'm a deluded tranny, just like you're a deluded x-tranny. Irony can be cruel sometimes, I know. But the only way to move past it is to acknowledge your delusion and come back to reality.
>>3791372>>deliberately avoid mentioning lens and brand specifics in the questionBecause you knew we'd make fun of your shitty camera, which deserves to be made fun of.
I've only ever used film cameras, however film is getting pretty expensive so want a digital to do the bulk of my practice with. Current camera is a Nikon F5, so the logical choice is a full frame Nikon F-mount so I don't have to buy extra lenses. I don't know anything about digital sensors or camera functions unique to digital but I do know I want the ergos to carry over as much as possible so it's a seamless change between using either. What's my go-to? 99% of my usage is for shooting motorbikes and cars, both static meets and track days/street racing. Df is attractive for its small size and familiar controls but apart from that I'm not convinced.[EXIF data available.

>>3791542>look how breathtakingly dishonest you are: you can't even fucking get a 135mm for rf mount.“The fujifag cries out in pain as he strikes you.”All EF lenses function perfectly on all EOS R bodies with a $99 adapter. Who said you needed a mirrorless camera, though? Sell your Fuji consumerist toys and get yourself a used 5D Mark III ($700ish) and a copy of the EF 135mm f/2L lens and you’ll come out ahead in a lot of ways, including in life. >larping gearwhore You’re the one trying to justify spending more on less. The Fuji worms might have had an effect on your brain, fujiscum. Only way to get them out is with an ice pick.
God this board is cancer. It’s actually an analogy of the world at the moment. Everyone chooses a side and doesn’t budge or accept the views of somebody who has chosen a different side. I’m a Sony shooter who actually posts pics but I see many talented guys here with Fuji gear. Your camera doesn’t make you a good photographer and arguing about brands makes you a vapid, cancerous prick.

>>3791342You can just google XF 90mm f2 and see it's great for portraits. >>3791554The type of tecchie freaks who spend more time online than outdoors shooting are the ones drawn to BIG SPECZ like you find on Sony and Canon full frames.
>>3791555I assume you mean the fujibot.
>>3791505The F5 is more like a DSLR than the SLRs that the DF imitates, two knob setup. I'd recommend something like a D750 with a battery grip to get the same handling. Or a D3S for those sweet 9 FPS, but you lose a bit of resolution and have to use expensive CF cards instead of SDs.
>>3791557I can definitely make a point while insulting. I just did. Do you have a thread for your photos taken with your Sony btw?

>>3791580kek, AF is never as great as manual focus for certain things.But you're right that he's retarded, the shitty camera recommendation gives it away. Rotting with worms.Outside of sports/action, what's the point of shooting AF?
>>3791574Lol no you can’t.
>>3791587I know you’re trolling, but I’ll play along. Accurate focus is “the point.” Focus peaking can only get you so close.
>>3791580I shoot MF as the lens is small and I enjoy it. Not that enjoyment means anything in these threads.

>>3791610Shills piss me off that's why.
>>3791609What cameras are you using for AF? It sounds like the problem is either you don’t know how to use your camera or your camera sucks. Mirrorless cameras are capable of nailing focus every time. I guarantee that you are not nailing focus as often as AF would if you knew how to use it.
>>3791616How do you tell it what to focus on in a tiny screen? lolI'm nailing focus because I'm seeing the photo before taking it, I fully zoom what I want to focus in the LCD
In case you stupid assholes didn’t get the memo—we only ever had to use manual focus lenses on mirrorless cameras when mirrorless cameras were brand new and there were no lenses available for them. Also, early mirrorless cameras had shitty contrast detect AF. Now there are lots of lenses for every system, and virtually every system has a mature AF implementation. The only reason to still fuck around with focus peaking manual lenses is to literally wear a fedora and feel like a special snowflake.
>>3791598>Bayer with AF pixels>X-tranny with AF pixelsx-trans is a bayer array.
>>3791621>How do you tell it what to focus on in a tiny screen?Have you literally never used a modern camera? Lol, this is sad. You can pick the focus point manually or the camera can pick it for you. Many cameras can auto detect an eye and focus on that. Yes, I’m sure it sounds like I’m describing space travel to a primitive cave-dweller, but the technology is very easy to use and very accurate. You are just backwards and likely very low IQ.

Does anyone where to get 7artisans lenses in Europe? I don't wanna pay custom fees which will 100% happen if I order from ebay.I want to buy the 35 mm f1.2
Hey P, Im already incested in Canon with some quality lenses but have a shitty entry level body, I want to move up a step, should I buy a 90D thats APSc or go with a FF 6D mark 2.the 90D basically has all the features I want except FF
>>3791858Why do you want full frame so much?
>>3791818Amazon. I'd get Meike f1.4 instead, though. It's halfway usable at f1.4.
>>3791657No, too ashamed of all the autofocused images with perfect in-focus sharpness. A good photo should be manually focused and definitely not sharp.
>>3791663My brother got an a7ii and likes the photos he can make with it. He does complain about focus speed at times, though. He was hoping to adapt his Canon lenses, which apparently focus-hunt.
>>3791858If you’re already at the $1000-1300 price point of the 90D or 6DII, then you really have a lot of options, even with Canon. Used, you could probably afford literally 5D, including the Mark IV. The 5DS went on fire sale recently for only $1500–I don’t know how that had affected used prices, but you might even be able to find it still in stock somewhere. The EOS R and RP are well within your price range, and I only recommend them because the future of Canon will likely be in the RF mount...not to say that the EF mount isn’t already fully mature and already good to go. You might also consider the M6 Mark II as an alternative body with better features than the and a more compact package, but you will have to adapt EF and EF-S lenses because the native lenses suck.
>>3791783It would be my second camera behind a relatively large nikon. I was eyeing the Olympus because I wanted something I actually could have on myself most of the time and was looking at cute compact mirrorless cameras. How bad is the low light performance?
>>3791783>>3791954To add to that, I looked up some satisfactory pics taken at iso 6400, so maybe it can't be that bad?
>>3791954It might be fine but when I was taking pictures of people at night I was getting bad blur. The IBIS is amazing for still nighttime shots like buildings. I could hand hold 1/2” shots with a 25mm. All in all I loved the PEN F. It feels great in the hand and the shutter noise is really nice.

>>3791858I mostly shoot wildlife and I love my 90D its basically an EF mount mirrorless with a not shit viewfinder and battery life for days.The only real reason to go full frame is if you want slightly better low light performance or bokeh whoring, the crop factor on APSC is a benefit imo because its much easier and cheaper to get a good wide angle lens for APSC than it is to get a lens that can reach out to 500mm on full frame.I also considered the R/RP in that price range but they are just rebel tier mirrorless gimped crap.
>>3792053The rp can resolve more details than the 90dThe 32mp thing is a meme no lens can resolve that much res Thers a reason every camera maker stopped at 24mp apsc
>>3791974Yeah like for this guy >>3790079
>>3792077>32mp thing is a meme no lens can resolve that much resIt's good for tele and especially macroThere are good macro lenses that are sharp enough, and at 1:1, smaller sensor is smaller subject
>>3791860Why wouldn't he? FF is great, same lens gives you 1.6x the FoV.>>3791858>incestedkekI assume you mean invested. Tell me, are your lenses full frame or crop?The 90D is truly a dream camera, but it's not FF. >>3791923>If you’re already at the $1000-1300 price point of the 90D or 6DII, then you really have a lot of options, even with Canon. Used, you could probably afford literally 5D, including the Mark IV. The 5DS went on fire sale recently for only $1500–I don’t know how that had affected used prices, but you might even be able to find it still in stock somewhere. This is true too. But I wouldn't go mirrorless. The OVF is too awesome to replace it with a tiny screen.>>3792053It's arguably the best camera currently available for wildlife.>>3792077>The 32mp thing is a meme no lens can resolve that much res kek, sounds like cope to meThat thing puts the a7RIV to shame with good glass.>>3792138This.
aside from low light performance, why does MFT get shit on so hard?
>>3792169Almost every time I see color banding in a shot, I look at the EXIF and it's Olympus.
>>3792077>The 32mp thing is a meme no lens can resolve that much resany modern L series is more than capable of resolving 32mp
You own a Canon R5 or R6? Help a /p/rother out or learn something:>>3792182>>3792184
>>3792169It's just a bunch of jelly nophoto foolframers.
>>3792169Low highlight ceiling and poor subject separation.However I'd rather get MFT than Fuji any day.
>>3792053>90D its basically an EF mount mirrorless with a not shit viewfinder and battery life for days.That's one way to look at it, I supposed. Another way to look at it is that it's an enormous mirrorless camera that doesn't have an EVF.
>>3792200>they are just jealousNot hard to tell you heard this from your mum every day of your childhood.
>>3789333 (checked)based and redpilled feature actually
>>3791860better for lowlight.and so I dont have to do goddamn math everytime I want to change/focus lenses and settings to compensate for crop factor
>>3791923If I was going to go 5D, I would go 5DSR.The problem with the 5DSR is that it doesnt have a flippy screen, no 4k video, and no IBIS. I realize that neither the 90 or 6D2 have IBIS, but they also arent at 50mp and I dont want to have to always use a tripod.Further, the 5DSR is another $1k, and Id rather save for the R5 towards mid/end of 2021
>>3792159>Tell me, are your lenses full frame or crop?>The 90D is truly a dream camera, but it's not FF.Canon 50 1.2 L, 24-70 4 L, and 8-15 4 Lalong with the 2 kit lenses that came with my current camera (T7) the 18-55 and 70-200
How do you snap with autofocus lens? Does your camera support seeing manual focus to hyperfocal distance?Does it keep the distance through power save or restart?
>>3790255I was close to buying a printer once but then I realized that* the ink is ridiculously expensive* unless you print regularly, the heads dry out and need cleaning, which uses even more ink and wastes itso it wouldn't have been worth doing because I wouldn't have been printing regularly enough.
>>3790311You should know that rangefinder lenses don't perform great on mirrorless cameras due to the thickness of the sensor stack, especially for wide angle lenses. See https://phillipreeve.net/blog/rangefinder-wide-angle-lenses-on-a7-cameras-problems-and-solutions/
>>3791213Not true. With Canon cameras you get banding. Nikon cameras are better but still suffer from banding. Sony is the only brand that is banding free as far as I know. Fuji cameras are sadly limited by being APS-C. Leicas perform worse but they aren't trying to compete. So no, they're not all the same. If you mean that they are all good enough, then you're right about that.
>>3792369Are you the retarded kid who shitposted last night about how you think you can manually focus faster than autofocus? Now you're demonstrating to everybody that you are unaware of the existence and purpose of the AF/MF switch. Lol.
>>3792392>With Canon cameras you get bandingnewer ones too? I noticed banding on my 5D2I had a Nikon that didn't suffer from it and it was from 2011 or so
>>3792395>you think you can manually focus faster than autofocusWho said any of that?What was said was that AF is good for sports and action in general but less precise than manual focusing with live view
>>3792423>>you think you can manually focus faster than autofocus>Who said any of that?The plebbit tourist wojakposter: >>3791597>>3791598>>3791609>>3791621>>3791631>>3791635>>3791642>>3791644>What was said was that AF is good for sports and action in general but less precise than manual focusing with live viewThere was a contradictory statement to that effect that was made very early on: >>3791587. >kek, AF is never as great as manual focus for certain things.>But you're right that he's retarded, the shitty camera recommendation gives it away. Rotting with worms.>Outside of sports/action, what's the point of shooting AF?To be honest, I assumed that it was a completely different person because the conversation very quickly morphed into just "it's impossible to beat MF speeds no matter how advanced your camera's autofocus capability."And it's a contradictory statement anyway. "AF is good for sports and action in general," so you acknowledge that modern cameras are able to autofocus accurately--so accurately and quickly in fact that manually focusing is not even on the table. But somehow when the subject is not playing a sport, the camera's ability to automatically acquire accurate focus becomes COMPROMISED. It's not easier for a camera to autofocus on a slow-moving or still subject, it's actually much SLOWER and LESS accurate. Absolutely insane.
>>3792434Nobody said anything about speed and you quoted some of my posts together with the wojakposter.>"it's impossible to beat MF speeds no matter how advanced your camera's autofocus capability."Again that only happened in your head.The MF argument is precision not speed.>so you acknowledge that modern cameras are able to autofocus accurately--so accurately and quickly in fact that manually focusing is not even on the table. They're able to focus FAST, and accurate enough. When you want razor-sharp accuracy manual focus is king, because AF is always making rough guesses of what the subject is.>it's actually much slowersure>less accurateyou're just wrong heresometimes I use AF as a quick approximation and then fine tune it manually
Does anyone here know how to contact whoever replaced Helen Oster on Adorama?
>>3792441>They're able to focus FAST, and accurate enough.Vintage lens cope. You are also contradicting your earlier statements that manual focus is faster.>because AF is always making rough guesses of what the subject is.You ARE the wojak poster.Just because the AF is "guessing what the subject is" doesn't mean it's slow or inaccurate. It focuses precisely on what it decides is the subject, and for tripod-mounted shots, all you have to do is learn (difficult concept, I know...) how to move the focus point, and then the camera won't be guessing.
>>3792479>Vintage lens cope. You are also contradicting your earlier statements that manual focus is faster.Quote my statements where you claim I said manual was faster. I literally said the only reason to use AF is action/sports aka when you need fast focus. And my lenses are all AF capable, I just prefer the manual focus mode. They aren't the shitty ones with no clutch either, it's easy to override the AF without switching to MF if I want to.>You ARE the wojak poster.It's impossible for me to be the wojak poster because there's 60 seconds cooldown between posts. You made a retarded statement and had more than one person calling you a retard, what a shocker.See >>3791633 and >>3791635. >Just because the AF is "guessing what the subject is" doesn't mean it's slow or inaccurate. It focuses precisely on what it decides is the subject, and for tripod-mounted shots, all you have to do is learn (difficult concept, I know...) how to move the focus point, and then the camera won't be guessing.It's accurate for the subject it decides to focus on, kek. Full manual is for those who want control and precision like me. AF is for those who want the job done quickly. Same type of people who used to do zone focusing. Depends on the subject you're photographing.
Please help: for casual family and vacation photography would you buy the EOS RP with kit lens and the 35 f1.8 for a total of 1180€ or the EOS R with the same kit lens (non L) for 1250€? Basically better camera vs more glass. I don’t take any professional pictures at all, only personal stuff. Also I want Ringer the 85 f2 down the line at some point. Video in FHD would also be important, so Incan Film my kids etc. thanks a lot![EXIF data available.

>>3792421Yeah, even on their newer mirrorless ones. I don't know about the R5 and R6 but the R definitely had it when it came out and I was watching reviews.
>>3792486>Quote my statements where you claim I said manual was faster.>>3791635>>3791609>>3791597
>>3792805My only post there is >>3791609, but also none of those posts you quoted say anything about speed. You either imagined it or have short bus tier reading comprehension.
>>3792834Speed is an implied advantage of autofocus, so your stupid little temper tantrum about "quote exactly where I said that exact word exactly!!" is a moot point.
>>3792593Buying a full frame set-up for your purpose is just ridiculous. Something like the EOS M50 or any Fuji would do the job better.
>>3792860>implied advantage It's THE only advantage and I pointed it out in my first post that set YOU on a temper tantrum (saying that it's pointless if you're not shooting sports/action). The mountain isn't going away so you can carefully place the focal point on that tree with the weird colors that's too small to autofocus practically. In fact, in cases like that manual focus may be faster to get the results you want (not faster in general because the moment you hit the AF it will focus on something in the general vicinity in seconds). You can fight AF all day or take control like a man.
>>3792867>or Fuji KekAt the current full frame prices it's nice to have more bokeh, and I suspect the RP won't be too bad for FHD video.
>>3792869Sorry to break it on you, but fujifilm is both cheaper and better.
is the canon 80D still a good camera? tempted to get it upgrading from a canon eos 4000D
>>3792869Of course not I'm just saying that everything you described screams APS-C, they're quite literally build for that purpose.Also portraiture on APS-C works just fine since 56mm is enough so you don't have fuckhuge long lenses
>>3792918Depends on the price. At the time it came out, it was expensive for a crop sensor camera, but it has great fast action capabilities. For $550 used, you certainly could do a lot worse. If you can step up just a few hundred dollars, though, you'll be within reach of a used 5DIII or 6D for affordable full frame. The 5DII sells for $500ish, and you might save money getting one of those, although the autofocus is much less advanced than that on the 80D.As an upgrade from the 4000D (I forgot this camera even existed, desu), you will get much better direct controls, a clearler/brighter viewfinder, and generally the camera is a step up in specs across the board. But if you know how to use your 4000D quickly and are familiar with it, you may not see the quality of your photos change that much. The 80D is probably the camera you should have started out with and at this point you should be upgrading to full frame. What lenses do you have?
>>3792927that makes sense. I started out with the 4000D because I was able to get it for $250 and wanted something cheap to learn how to use a DSLR. I've been using it for 2 years and felt it was probably time to upgrade - I'm definitely not opposed to spending a bit extra and getting a full frame, I'm just not really sure what to look for when it comes to camera hardware.As for lenses I have the stock 18 - 55mm that came with the camera. I also have a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. I've found both enjoyable to use for different reasons.
>>3792868>It's THE only advantageYou JUST claimed that you went to great lengths to troll the thread because you think manually focusing is more accurate.>that set YOU on a temper tantrum False characterization.>The mountain isn't going away so you can carefully place the focal point on that tree with the weird colors that's too small to autofocus practicallyYou can do photography however you like, but we are having a discussion, so I am going to hold you to higher standards than you hold yourself. Saying--or "implying" if you want to pull the literal card again--that focus point selection is unusable because you might place the focus point over an obstacle instead of your subject is a strawman. You're describing user error, if anything, but you're simultaneously denying that user error could ever be a factor for manually focusing lenses. Insanity.>In fact, in cases like that manual focus may be faster to get the results you want (not faster in general because the moment you hit the AF it will focus on something in the general vicinity in seconds). You can fight AF all day or take control like a man.And here you clearly articulate your cognitively dissonant argument. User error applies to manual focus point selection for AF, but doesn't apply to manual focusing itself, which is inherently much more prone to user error.
>>3792937Well, going by ebay prices, you could probably get around $175-225 if you sold the 4000D and 18-55 today. The 50mm is a decent lens, so I would hold onto that. If you like the 75-300, then keep it too. That's not a whole lot of funds to work with and I don't know what you want to add, but again, you will definitely have a less clumsy experience doing photography with the greater number of direct controls and better AF specs that the 80D offers. You will not get a better fast action full frame camera for that price; the 5DII and 6D take quite a bit of technique to shoot action with (not that you can't do it, though, both are fantastic cameras). Keep in mind that full frame lenses are also more expensive than crop lenses. What is your budget?
>>3792949I'd be happy to spend $1250 - $1500 if I knew I was getting a good quality camera that is going to last
>>3792952That's more than enough for a quality camera and a decent lens to go with it. What are your needs? What are your wants? What are you photographing and what do you do with your photos?
>>3792679Another solid fullframe choice
>>3792956I mostly photograph landscapes, sunrises / sunsets and I've used my zoom lens for a bit of bird photography. I don't do anything special with my photos atm beyond editing and posting them online. I'd like to look to get to the level of selling prints / calendars or something similar if my photography skills are good enough and people like my photos. Though I'm by no means a professional photographer, I mainly take these photos for my own enjoyment and so I have images to look back on. I'd like them to be high a bit higher quality than what I'm shooting right now. Something that gives me an image with a bit less noise and handles low light situations better
>>3791708>Sony was not a faggot, desu.What's actually going at Sony? I've only realized Sony has reworked the menu again and added touch with the A7riv and A7siii.
>>3792174L lenses r full frame lenses not apscEven if they resolve the 5dsr 50mp res thats only 17mp apsc Resolving 32mp apsc is impossible
>>3792965Definitely upgrade from the 4000D, then.
>>3792987Consider Toneh Northcrop has tested some lens on full frame 240 MP pixel shift mode and found improvement over 60 MP.
>>3793009the 6D seems like the play. thanks for the recommendation and advice anon
Is worth upgrading from X-E2 to the X-E3?Or should I wait for X-E4 or save for X-T30?
>>3792939Not user error, but the constraints of the system. It simply isn't precise enough. If the area covered by the AF spot is too big for the subject the camera has to guess a lot.As for false characterization, that would be what you did.
>>3793138Stay with X-E2, save up for a X-T20/X-T2 so you have a video shooter too.
>>3791600Leicas have been a meme since the first days of japanese rangefinders. They're a premium brand and practically nothing they make is actually competitive with anything else. You buy a leica because you want a leica and are loaded, not because you want a good camera.
My Olympus OM-1n just arrived. Second hand so a bit scuffed, but seems to be in good nic. Any tips? Recommendations? Very pretty piece.
>>3791342>multiplying the aperture by crop factorngmi
>>3789082Is the X-A7 worth getting primarily for video? I mean like short films and that kind of thing. It would be my first mirrorless too, but I don't know if it's too basic an entry level.
