Gear obsession editionWhat cameras or lenses have /p/ bought recently? What are you planning on buying? I'm waiting for the RF 70-200mm f/4L to drop. Some sites are saying end of January, others are saying March.
Do you normally tell people every single piece of camera gear you own every time you make a comment on photography?
>>3793113I bought a Ricoh kr 5 super and a f/2 50mm lens to go with it. wanted a 35mm but couldn't find one.It was dirt cheap too.
>>3793113Is this man huge or the camera really small?
>>3793120Ken is a giant homunculus
Is worth upgrading from X-E2 to the X-E3?Or should I wait for X-E4 or save for X-T30?
>>3793113I just want Nikon to come out with their "compact" 40mm
>>3793146Good to know.
>>3793148>"upgrading" from one wormy sensor to anotherNope. Return them to a moist garden and buy a Canon.
>>3793116lmfao what a fag
>>3793116Not all people aren't crazy, especially on the internets.
>>3793173haven't you shat up enough threads today?
>>3793173based>>3793113faggot OP, next time paste the gear thread text instead of making a fujifag tier OP
>>3793215Nevermind, I just noticed it was the pic of him with a Fuji. Looks like OP is the fujifag from last thread.What do you worms think of what he had to say about "simulations"?>I'm not a fan of the film simulations. I love the look of real Fuji VELVIA film, but the electronic simulations in the X100V (or any of the Fuji cameras) just don't do it for me.
>>3793116Consumerists are cancer. Gear becomes their hobby.
>>3793216That's a Leica, you moron.
>>3793219reeeee I wanted a fujifag to reply to it, you no fun allowed faggotYou think I didn't see the illuminator window?It could only be a true rangefinder.
>>3793173i laughed. and unironically agree. canon is kicking ass and probably the smartest eco system to buy into
Which camera produces the best white borders? I really think this could take my photography career to the next level. >>3793113Fuck you.
>>3793173>Sell your Sony and buy a Fuji has been replaced with sell your Fuji and buy a CanonKek guess they hate being on the receiving end of that
I’m thinking of buying the Sigma 100-400mm DN, but I think the 24-70mm DN would be more convenient for photography until we’re allowed to travel again, but the sigma 24-70 is $350 US more here than it is in the US while the Tamron 28-75 is slightly cheaper than in the US. God sigma needs to make a 24-105
>>3793259R6 is unironically good. All the EOS R models are way better than anything Fuji makes. EOS M is also getting very good these days. It's more of a consumerist camera system, but the lenses are both compact and inexpensive, which justifies its consumerist designation.
>>3793260>I’m thinking of buying a SigmaOh, nooooo. It's retarded.
>>3793253It definitely is, I wonder if (and hope) the newer models solved the banding.Nikon is fucking up with Z mount, FTZ adapter has no reason to be $450. People end up buying a Fringe and using Canon EF glass instead.
>>3793259I shoot Canon and fujifags have called me a Sony shill several times because I shat on their meme cameras lol
>>3793253Except for the fact that they overcharge out the ass for their shit.
>>3793264I think you’re the retarded one, anon.
>>3793288It’s because Sony betrayed them and censored their anime tiddies in their imported anime games. That’s where “Snoy” originated from.
Looking for a new lens for my Nikon, should I stick to only Nikkor lenses or is that retarded?
>>3793299You didn’t say what kind of lens for what purpose and if it’s Nikon Z or F
So I found an old film camera that accepts only pc flash input. The camera works but it has no flash. I was wanting to hook it up with an on camera flash on a bracket. I found a bracket on b&h that will work. But b&h doesn't list what type of bulb is used in their on camera flash. I need one with halogen, not led. Does anyone know any (inexpensive) on camera flashes with halogen and not led?
>>3793303I'm looking for a prime lens for low light stuff, it's an F mount
>>3793314Well still a wide range of focal lengths. FF? DX? Sigma 35mm 1.4 is less than half the cost of the Nikon 35mm 1.4g iirc.
any suggestions on a K mount 35mm lense that isn't too expensive but not shit either?
>>3793315It is a crop sensor but really my question is: is the lens brand ever a factor when looking for new lenses? Like are some known to be bad or good? Or does it depend on the type of lens?
>>3793329Look at the reviews. Brand is literally meaningless unless you find some wun hung lo brand on ebay or amazon that you've never heard of.
>>3793254the more expensive the camera the better the white borders are
Is the Panasonic LX10 still a good camera? Or should I pay more for the RX100VA? I don't care about video but I want the best possible image quality at iso 1600.
>>3793382why use a higher iso when you can just lower your shutter speed?
Ken is such a god damn chad
>>3793287yeah, an ftz is a third of a new z50, fucking weird.
I own a modified Canon 100D which I use for astrophotography (with a Samyang 135mm f2) and a Pentax K-S1 for daytime photography which I don't use very often (suffering from aperture block, looking into DIY repair).This year I want to shoot more "regular" photography (as opposed to astro), landscape/nature stuff and a few portraits. I have no complaints with the Pentax and I pretty much only use vintage m42 lenses, but it's rather bulky so I often don't bring it out.Any suggestions for a cheap second hand camera that's more portable, takes M42 and PK lenses well and the Samyang (EF mount) as well? Or should I stick with the Pentax and get a cheap compact to carry with me?
>>3793316bumpAlso why do I always read about fuji, canon, sometimes pentacks and nikon but never about Ricoh on /p/ee?
what's the deal with x100v when xpro3 cost basically the same while offering ever so slightly better specs and most importantly an interchangeable lens mount?
>>3793497x100v is smaller, lighter, has a very compact lens, and a leaf shutter. I'm in the market for a compact camera that I can stick in a jacket pocket, and the x100v is in the running.
>>3793503This seems very marginal to me. Lens compactness might be the more important part I suppose. Is a leaf shutter even that much big of a deal?
>>3793497Fixed pancake lens camera vs ICL.
>>3793511>Is a leaf shutter even that much big of a deal?Shutter sync all the way through, nearly silent, no rolling shutter. It is if you want any of those things.
>>3793518Alright, thanks, makes sense.
>>3793430Canon EF bodies like your 100D can use M42 lenses with no issues, you just need a cheap adapter.With "modified" you probably mean IR-filter removal, you can just use an IR-filter in front of the lens.Get one as large as your largest lens and a few adapter rings.Compact cameras have a tendency to suck, if you want something compact sized, get a small mirrorless camera.If you get a Canon EOS M series camera, you can use your EF lenses almost natively with an EF-M to EF adapter and you can use all SLR-lenses with some sort of adapter as well.
>>3793395don't have parkinsons maybe?
I recently bought the 18mm f/2 R for my X-Pro2 and I'm waiting for DHL to drop it off this week. Outside of that, I'd love to get an 80-200 f/2.8D for my D610 so I can replace the beat to shit previous generation 80-200 I've got for esports work
>>3793511>>3793503There aren’t any more compact lenses. But if you’re going to get a fixed lens compact, ditch Fuji and look at the Ricoh GR III, it’s a lot slimmer if you must be able to fit a camera with lens into a pocket, it’s about 20mm slimmer.
>>3793525I did try using M42 lenses on the 100D, unfortunately my camera only had the filter removed and not replaced with a clear glass one therefore to focus properly you have to use liveview, the viewfinder no longer matches the actual focus. I might look into clip-in clear filters, but for compactness and focus peaking a mirrorless is appealing, on average they seem rather slimmer compared to my 100D which is very small for a DSLR. Any suggestions besides the M50/M5?
>>3793540medication can do only so much
>>3793511Now put a lens on the xpro 3
>>3793290>overcharge out the ass for their shitlmao
>>3793679>lmaoWhen you realize that the fuji lens is actually a 135mm f/3 equivalent and they are charging f/2 money for that shit, yeah, it's pretty funny. LMAO.
>>3793683It's what I was poking fun at, lolAt least the Oly 45mm f/1.8 (f/3.6 equiv) is just 399. Fuji is paying more for less.
>>3793553If the M50 is within your budget, it's probably your best choice.Allthough I'd recommend buying the M50 MK1 used, MK2 is basicly just a firmware update.
>>3793687Also don't forget that it's an L-Lens.They aren't exactly known to be of the budget variety...
>>3793687f2 is f2 buddy. And it's got aperture ring right on the lens. Many are willing to pay extra for that comfort.
>>3793687I just realized that my choice of Oly lens is retarded lol, I halved 90mm instead of halving 135mm. However the 60mm f/2.8 (120mm equivalent) is the same price. A closer equivalent, the 75mm f/2.8 is highway robbery at 899.>>3793694Exactly lol. It's the cream of the crop.
>>3793695>f2 is f2 buddyFor luminance purposes yes. For subject separation no. That's why MFT is advantageous for certain kinds of pics at a distance, like the one of the basketball hoop that guy posted a few days ago, pic related.[EXIF data available.

>>3793695>f2 is f2 buddy.Depth of field is highly dependent on distance to the subject. When you take an f/2 lens and then you have to back up a few feet because your camera crops off the edges of the image circle, the depth of field gets larger. You can not isolate the same subject with the same framing to the same degree with these two lenses in: >>3793679>>3793694The Fuji lens is technically mid range--they have a little red badge for their most premium line--but it's built to about the same degree of quality as the L lens. Metal barrel, weather-sealing, their best autofocus motor...the only thing it's missing is OIS, but they have red badge lenses that lack that.
>>3793695>F/2 is F/2 when comparing FF and APS-C Yes and no.Yes, the light per square mm hitting the sensor is the same.No, the depth of field is not the same.Physicly speaking it's a 90 mm f/2.0On an APS-C sensor it is equivalent to a 135 mm f/3.0 on a FF sensor.And then we can factor in the sharpness as well, assuming both resolve the same amount of lines per mm, the FF lens has 1,5x1,5=2,5 the detail of the APS-C lens.
>>3793707I'm not saying it's a bad lens, I just doubt it compares to an L-lens on a FF body.
>>3793691Thanks for the input, even used the M50 is a bit pricier than I was looking to spend but I'll keep it in mind. Comparing some models with Camerasize I'm not sure the decrease in bulk over the pentax K-S1 is worth the change, I'll have to think about this some more.
>>3793148>>3793173lmao I've sold my canon to buy the fuji x-e2 tha I plan to upgrade.Canon is great and all, but the important thing to me is size and time to get the result I want.Regarding to size, i did not buy sony just because I liked the fuji colors better, and working with Capture One and Fuji I get faster results than I was with Canon and Ligthroom.It's not what is best, it's what works best for me.
Is 650 a good price for a x pro 1 with a 35 mm xf f2 lens? Looking for a first dslr
>>3793679would anyone actually be buying into a brand new canon or nikon or snoy Dslr these days? whos going to go and buy a flappy mirror camera and then by old legacy leftover junk at full retail to put in front of it
>>3793744>buying a wormy sensor>"good"
>>3793738There are also "lower" tier more compact ones.Essentialy the size of a compact camera+whatever lens you have mounted.

>>3793802Isn't that an 8 year old bridge camera that is supposed to take 2 AA batteries?Anyway, it's not worth investing into it.Also:Rechargeable batteries are a thing...
I'm a newbie looking to get into photography and mostly shoot stuff during my hikes and travels.A like new K-S2 + 18-270mm lens for 425 bucks seems perfect to me. Or would you recommend something else?
>>3793811>Isn't that an 8 year old bridge camera that is supposed to take 2 AA batteries?correct>Anyway, it's not worth investing into it.it's debatable since i literally used it few times>Rechargeable batteries are a thing...ye except they are noti went to local electronic seller and asked him about that since my camera shut down even when cells were fullso he said to me "look at their voltage, rechargeable cells have lower voltage than non rechargeable, that's cause it's not worth to charge them to their original state and so rechargeable cells are always "late" with their delivery, so camera shuts down instead"
>>3793811looks like a compact camera to me famalam
>>3793817>so he said to me "look at their voltage, rechargeable cells have lower voltage than non rechargeable, that's cause it's not worth to charge them to their original state and so rechargeable cells are always "late" with their delivery, so camera shuts down instead"Some cameras have a setting for NiMH batteries
>>3793824old on lemme check my rechargable AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA cells

>>3793775Nothing in this world is about need, you shittard. We don't live in africa or the pacific islands. Nobody needs a camera, it's completely superfluous to your existence. It's all wants, it's a motherfucking hobby, which is 100% about wants.
>>3793842Joke's on you, my camera doesn't have a Sony sensor unlike the Fujis lol
>>3793837>I just troll people with a bad attitude (usually fujifags but can be anyone)Theoria aphostasis on you tube said that nikon IS the greatest but i don't know shitso what's current status at corpowars ? who's more butthurt ?
>>3793844based iphone shooter
>>3793814sorry anon but these faggots only answer to canon, fuji or nikon posts.
>>3793857no, there's just no point giving "recommendations" to someone who has already made up their mind, or he's obviously trolling to get a rise out of brandfags
>>3793695No it’s not, f/2 is a ratio. 135/2 = 67.5, 90/2 = 4567.5 is not 45.>>3793705>For luminance purposes yesIt’s not, you get approx 1/4 the amount of light over the picture, hence why MFT is approx 2 stops behind FF. 5.6 and 150mm and ISO400 would be 300mm f/11 and ISO1600.
>>3793881>hence why MFT is approx 2 stops behind FF. 5.6 and 150mm and ISO400 would be 300mm f/11 and ISO1600.this is your brain on /p/. fuck me.
>>3793903Thats 100% correct though.
>>3793881What's my rollei getting wide open at 3.5?
>>3793931f over 3.5
>>3793881>It’s not, you get approx 1/4 the amount of light over the picturelel you're an imbecilethe F number being independent of sensor size is why when you want a visually equivalent picture on full frame than one from micro four thirds you have to crank up the ISO 4 times the one on MFTthis isn't hard to test
>>3793945Take a f/4 FF lens and if you had a 0.5x speedbooster you’d now have a f/2 lens on MFT, it’s not Magically giving you 4x more light, it’s the same amount of light concentrated over a smaller area. Hence f/4 and f/2 give the same amount of light on FF and MFT respectively, and the SNR will be similar when FF is using 2 stops higher ISO. At 50mm f/4 and 25mm f/2 just about everything will be the same - noise, depth of field, field of view, etc.That’s exactly how it works. There is a 2 stop difference (approx) between MFT and FF in signal rose noise ratio. Because there is less signal on MFT at the same f-number. Signal is the amount of light you’re getting. You’re getting 1/4 the amount of light at the same f-number on MFT.
>>3793955>speedboosterThat changes the f number and length, it's a focal reducer,Put a 100mm f/4 lens on a MFT and take a picture.To get the same picture on FF you need a 200mm f/8 (equivalent framing and DoF), now you have a much darker situation that forces you to use 4 times the ISO for the same shutter speed to get a picture that looks the same.Naturally, most of the time you want more aperture not less, but then it ceases to be equivalent. Same framing, DOF and exposure demand double the f number, double the focal length and 4 times the ISO (or a shutter 4 times slower).
>>3793957Yes you need 4x the ISO, the amount of light however is the same, 1/4 the light intensity, but 4x the light collection area. Same DoF, same field of view, same SNR. The same amount of light treated the same just spread out over a larger area. Hence f/4 (mft) is equal to f/8 (FF), 100/4 = 25, 200/8 = 25, 100/4 = 200/8. Glad to see you agree with me.>>3793695>f2 is f2 buddyHence this is patently false. f/2 is f/4 from mft to FF
>>3793960>Same DoFthis is due to the distance to subject more than the sensor itself, although said distance is a symptom caused by the crop factor
>>3793967Same distance to subject, equivalent aperture, equivalent focal length eg 100mm f/4 and 200mm f/8
>>3793751I am of half a mind to liquidate my Sony and all my film cameras and just get a EOS1V for 35mm and a 5D mk iii and spend the rest on EF L glass.
>>3793978>liquidate my Sony and all my film camerasWhat do you have and how much would you sell it for?
>>3793316All the pentax smc are pure kino tier. Even the Japanese made ones by off brands have good focus and clarity. The 50mm 1.7 is a beast still under 80 quid most places. The 28mm 2 is more expensive and elusive but good. The 35mm is good too. Don't forget you can mount old f nikon lenses on pentax as well
>>3793978Sounds like a plan (unless some of your film cameras are Leicas, might be worth keeping one).5D3 is honestly a better value than 5D4 and pretty much all L glass is stellar.
Just bought a Leica.My first thought is that I should have just bought one much sooner.Do yourself a favour and sell all your gear and buy Leica.That's all.
>>3794009lel nice try but rangefinders aren't my thing
>>3794011pretty sure 90% of /p/ shoots "street" (or basically fuck all outdoors) so unless you shoot weddings, zone focus (aka f8 and 3m to infinity) is all you needfor the occasional anime figurine bokeh at f/1.4, any manual focus system is good since you can take your time.

is the canon 6d mk II a meme? I've seen a lot of mixed reviews about it - wondering if anyone here has experience with it and could recommend it for photography.

>>3794033It does exist, your video is proof of it. You can't get a decent photo with an extreme crop on a short lens.>>3794034I plead the 5th :^)
>>3794036It's a meme for its age, I guess you're fine if you buy used.
>>3794049was looking to buy new ideally. I liked the look of the 5D Mk IV but don't really want to spend over 2 grand on a camera right now. that said I'd still like a full frame, just having a hard time choosing the right one.
>>3794051What type of photography?Usually the 5D models have better weather sealing and better AF among other things but the 6D offers things like the articulated screen which is really cool.

>>3794063Based. I shoot Canon too.

Any recommendations for a cheap workhorse camera? I have a job where I take a ton of photos and they really just need to be in focus and properly exposed, both wide and telephoto, there's no art in this at all (pre & post purchase home inspections, 4-points, wind mitigation, etc). It's the most artless photography job you can get but it pays the bills. I just need to shit out a ton of in-focus JPGS. I was looking at point & shoots because that's what I've used for years but for the price of some of these I could get a used shitty entry level Canon DSLR and a used shitty Tamron 18-250mm superzoom for about $250 or less. I have a Nikon with real lenses but I don't want to use that for this job, and a terrible Kodak (really) digital point and shoot that I use now that's pretty miserable to use.I almost don't want a camera that's too good because I don't want to waste it.
>>3794274A smartphone or tablet will do.
>>3794275I've used my phone in a pinch but it's not ideal. I need real zoom which is the only reason I still use this Kodak point and shoot.
If you are just photographing purchases at peoples homes I would use a smartphone or a tablet. That's what everyone else does these days. And that is what the purchaser/home owner understands. It's kind of weird to photograph someones new purchases at his home with a dslr or ilmc and the home owner will ask questions about that.

>>3794423>Fuji-wormsIIRC that's not an issue with straigh out of camera .jpg.The issue is caused by the different colour filter array and RAW-converters that aren't optimized for it.
>>3794451X-transformer reduces it a bit but it's still present in the end result. Still, bridge cameras don't have the X-tranny sensor so they're safe.
>>3794439No problem. Look into other bridge cameras too, for example there's a Canon PowerShot SX710 HS on eBay for 130 with case, memory, battery and charger (the Sony uses AA batteries instead).

Is a neoprene soft case enough protection for walking around with the camera hung from my neck or throwing into a backpack?
I'm looking for a dedicated landscape camera and I'm between the D850 and the A7RIII. I don't need a wide selection of lenses, just a standard (but preferably quality) kit lens, plus very good ~24mm and ~50mm primes since I shoot at those lengths a lot.Size, weight, and autofocus don't matter to me, battery life does matter a little. No limit on money (I can afford both bodies), but if I can save money with one system to get the same quality, that's a big plus. Any thoughts between these two systems, purely for landscape?Also, should I consider the A7RII? Is the III a substantial jump, or should I save a huge amount of money and go for the II instead?
>>3794618The Nikon is weather sealed. Get the D850 purely for that reason. Don’t even consider Snoy for any work in the outdoors. Those are for vloggers mainly.

>>3794709>>3794709>Definitely keen on high levels of zoom in order to take photos of birdsGetting a lens for that will be a major issue at that price
>>3794718Okay, how about mid tier zoom? Or what would you suggest in the cheaper end of the spectrum. Doesn't have to be crazy zoom.
>>3794721You can get a Nikon D3400 and 18-55mm lens which would be an every day zoom lens for around $500 aud, from standard wide angle to slight telephoto. You can then find a cheap 70-300mm lens for around $200 or so, but they’re usually not sharp at the long end.
>>3794633>landscapes look shitty with shitty weatherThey can look fantastic right after shitty weather, though, as the mist is still hanging in the air and clouds are low on the horizon but breaking apart.

>>3794736>https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/greenwith/digital-slr/nikon-d3400-and-accessories/1264428512Looks a bit overpriced. The body alone is $410. On his listing. For examplehttps://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Nikon-D3400-AF-P-18-55mm-Kit-Lens/353345939464?hash=item52450f2808:g:oTQAAOSwH1xf97uB
>>3794744Oh, I'm pretty sure the seller is saying the camera comes with HB-61 sun shade, battery charger MH-24, camera to usb type-C cord and Nikon DX af-p Nikkor 18-55mm lens. I'll contact them and find out. If so, she's that seem like a fair deal? I think the other items are seperate.
>>3794760And you’d have a bit left over for a cheap 70-300mm lens. Though I don’t think they’re that great usually.
>>3794761Cool. Yeah I'm not looking for anything fantastic. Just want to buy myself something nice and get into the hobby/teach myself to take photos. I could probably do a shittone of research but what little I've seen says this is a good entry level piece and that's all I'm looking for really.
>>3794613Really depends on what's in your backpack. A bunch of cables and relatively soft things? Sure. Heavy things and things with sharp angles? No.
>>3794736>>3794760I'd suggest getting something like a D5200 instead. A bit older but much nicer ergonomics and same lens support (D5100 is awesome but doesn’t support AF-P). I found this listing but it's kinda iffy to me, pics of the lens box but not of the lens itself. If real, it's a much before deal. How does Gumtree work anyways?

>>3794931>>3794946Plus: if it's from a photography shop is probably better.Never had any issues with used stuff even from ebay, but taking directly from a shop you may have some sort of warranty
>>3794946I'd like to add the following from personal experience:>give it a discrete sniffI once got a great deal on a 17-55 years ago, no scratches, looked absolutely mint.It wasn't until I got home I noticed the rubbers absolutely reeked of cigarettes and it took ages to get the smell out.
Why do Pentax DSLRs have worse battery life than Canon and Nikon?
Best value DSLR for £500 or so second hand? Please recommend. I particularly want compact body and lenses.
>>3794990At that pricerange the EOS M50 is great, not a DSLR but a MILC though.
>>3794990If you want a dslr than a Nikon D3500 is the best one. It costs £429.00 and you need to buy a memory card which costs at least another £10.00.
>>3794931>item location: JapanUsually good to go. If it's not in absolutely mint condition, it will be disclosed heavily>seller: KEH>condition: "used condition"It's going to be completely worn out, beat to shit, probably have a shutter count WELL NORTH of 1 million, heavy soiling, and maybe scratches on the sensor from being cleaned improperly.
>>3795002Not entirely accurate but in the large scheme of things not wrong either. There's some amazing deals on KEH, but buying from Japan usually involves detailed photos of the actual item you're buying (look for the ones that publish each article for sale separately).Some of them you can even see the serial number on the pics and it's the one you get.Also "used" isn't a condition for KEH, literally everything is used there unless explicitly stated otherwise. But you have grades, from as is to like new. Sometimes you luck out with the bargain items and get something that's near mint with some minor functional flaw, specially on vintage gear. And you can return things if not satisfied unless it's graded "as is".
>>3794997>Nikon D3500I'd rather go upmarket and second hand honestly.
>>3794997Don’t do this. Used D700 for a little bit less is heaps better.

is the fuji x-t1 still worth buying? its about all i can afford maybe the 2 at a push if its that much betterthanks
IS this lens better than the Fujinon 18-55 F2.8-4?
>>3795016That 60D looks good. Thanks anon
>>3795020X-T2 is a much better camera overal.
>>3795023Old Canon cameras like the 60d and 70d have quality issues and really low dynamic range. Low dynamic range doesn't matter so much in the UK because of the cloudy weather everything is evenly lit.
All of this for €1250?
>>3795014>I particularly want compact body and lenses.
>>3795022no, sharp in center but really soft at corners, no image stab. fuji is wider and longer.
>>3795030i just realised that used the t2 and the t30 are about the same.. do you know which would be better paired with just a 50mm for learning with
>>3795023Glad to help. One nice thing about the 60D is that it has some degree of weather sealing unlike the Nikons I suggested. It's a fairly high end body. Also you can use magic lantern with it.>>3795033"really low" lol aren't you exaggerating a bit?look at the shadow recoveryhttps://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/2999648
>>3795023Also just noticed you said compact lol, the 60D is nearly 6D sized.The Nikons have the edge in that regard.
>>3795041It's APS-C, do you mean the XF 50mm f2 or a 35mm which turns into 50mm?
>>3795041X-T30 is considerably smaller and lighter, has a built-in flash, faster burst, a touch screen, and 2 more megapixels (not much, but it's something). X-T2 has weather sealing, as well as some small advantages on the body like an extra card slot, a slightly bigger viewfinder, and a dedicated ISO dial. I'd recommend the X-T30 over the X-T2 unless the weather sealing is very important.Since you're learning though I wouldn't recommend being too picky about the model you're learning on. Keep both in mind and see which you can get a good deal on.
>>3795055>>3795055ah, which would you recommend? from a quick look the 35mm is the same used as the f2 50mm is new.. >>3795057ah nice, smaller and lighter would definitely be better for me. seems there are a lot more x-t30's out there and generally come with the kit lens at the same price of a body only t2 so ill have a look at a few vids. thanks
>>3795060There's an XF f2 35mm that should be available for less than a new f2 50mm. The XF f1.4 35mm (more expensive) is a stop faster than the f2, but it's older, slightly bigger, and the autofocus isn't as fast.To make things more confusing, there's also an XC 35mm f2 that's almost entirely identical to the XF 35mm f2, albeit made of plastic and cheaper as a result.Choosing between 35mm and 50mm on crop comes down to preference. For learning, 35mm is probably better because it's the equivalent of a nifty fifty all-arounder on full frame.
>>3795060As an owner of the 50mm: don't get it as your first
what sites and whatnot are generally deemed the most true? not paid for shite ads but geninely good reviews on cameras and gear?
>>3795078This >>3795124 but with a grain of saltEvery review says that camera is the best but will have a lot of practical info and tidbits that are useful
>>3795006>Also "used" isn't a condition for KEH, literally everything is used there unless explicitly stated otherwise.KEH has two conditions: "good" and "trash." Both are worse grades than anything you'll get from Japan.
>>3795036>fujiworms>selling for >$0Bad deal.
>>3795146I agree with you that Japan usually has the best stuff but KEH is stellar sometimes
>>3795022YES. The Fuji lens can not be mounted on a high quality camera, such as a Pentax. Only on cameras that are full of sensor worms. Therefore, Pentax wins by default.
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.
>>3793814That lens is not very good and has 0 worth, treat it like it is an extra gift for the camera.That price while is not bad, I think you could do better with a K-70 and a kit lens, maybe with a kit+telezoom bundle.In any case the 18-50 kit and 55-300 telezoom are the ideal starting kit. Avoid superzooms like the ones you posted.
>>3795212Shoot a roll of film immediately and quickly to make sure it’s working fine. After that just go out and shoot bro.
Going to pick up a Nikon D3400 tomorrow, first DSLR I've owned>$410 Ausbux>Charger, cable, sun shade/hood thing for lens + 18-55m lensThoughts? Photos seem in good nick but will inspect physically tomorrow.I did post here yesterday but I've investigated what was suggested vs what's being sold locally and this seems like a fair deal, assuming it's in good condition.
>>3795249Picture has a 40mm macro lens attached not the 18-55?
>>3795250I know, that one is being sold seperately to the items I mentioned.
Ive been taking pics with my shitty chinkphone for a while now. It mostly close ups and often the colour and sharpness is kind of fucked. Should i get a Ricoh?I need one i can carry in my pocket easily
What filter should I get first? Polarising, ND or protective? At the moment I like landscapes, but I hope to develop portraits when the pandemic situation is over
>>3795249Not a bad camera but I would have looked into older D5x00 models instead. At least buying used you won't lose much money when you eventually upgrade, just consider it a long term cheap rental. I had a D5100 for 3 years myself which I sold at just above the same price I bought it (bought it in the USA for just under $200 with 2 batteries, bought the 18-55mm, the strap and the USB cable separately, sold it for $300 as a kit). I babied it and watched my shutter though. Now I have a full frame Canon that I plan to hold on to until it dies.
any fujifags know if the x-t3 is worth paying £250 more (used prices) over the x-t30? i don't really care about video but it would be nice i guess
>>3795293If you're shooting landscapes you will definitely want a polarizer for skies. A strong (6-10 stops) ND is good for smoothing water and clouds too, but not as essential as a polarizer. You don't need a UV filter if you're shooting digital.
anyone from nj know of any good camera shops left?
>>3795319Ty anon, I was thinking about this Kenko mostly because of the price tagAlso, I recently got a wide-angle lens, 24mm on a full frame, until now I was using the 50mm or a zoom lens. How much of a issue is a polarizer lens on a 24mm?
>>3795329Polarizer is okay above 28mmMuch below that you will see weird shit happen to your sky, if you want ultra-wide and that polarizer effect for deep blue skies, get a lens with a curved front element that you can't put filters on and you basically get the same thing
>>3795318I think it is due to the feel and also the viewfinder is much better. I consider the EVF to be one of the most important parts of a camera.
Is there a point in putting a vintage lens like the Zeiss 35mm on a modern body like the Xpro3?[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Image-Specific Properties:
>>3795391ok bad example of lens. how about like a vintage leica lens[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Image-Specific Properties:
>>3795391It'll probably look worse in 26MP APS-C than it ever did in film. Highly dependent on the specific lens. Pixel peeping is WAY harder on a lens than film printing ever was unless you routinely did massive enlargements. Most people never printed bigger than 8x10 and just about any lens looks good on such a small scale if it's in focus. Old lenses usually lack good coatings and things such as reflection off the sensor itself can in rare circumstances cause image degradation. Like I said, highly dependent on the specific lens.Luckily old lenses old value well so you can buy one, test it out, and if you hate it, sell it for what you paid for it unless you paid above market value.
>>3793116I usually disable signatures on forums.
>>3795393>>3795391I suppose it will work
>>3795356Funny, I consider having less than two live view screens one of the most important things in a camera.
>>3795036Not bad. The x-t30 is a solid camera. I would value a used one at $600. Each lens is about $300-$400 each.
>>3793113Laowa 65mm 2.8 macro is next on my list.
>>3795473I would value one at not worth buying.The only camera that approaches being worth it in the entire Fuji X lineup is the X-T200 and I wouldn't get it because it has no AA filter.
>>3795394>>3795461Cool aight thanks guys. Guess I'll stick to the newer lens then
Any suggestions between the lumix 14mm 2.5 prime vs 14-42 3.5 zoom with ois? I do mostly video, and have a 25mm prime. All this is on m43.
>>3795528The one you have with you.

>>3795693Canon's got the EF 40/2.8 and EF-S 24/2.8 that are both pancakes. They're not *quite* as small as the Pentax, but they're in the same general pancake size category.
>>3795693The DA Limited 40mm isn't even really that useful. It's a 60mm FF equivalent, so kind of tight, and not very fast either, so it's not exactly an ideal portrait lens. If you want a compact camera, buy a mirrorless. Something like the Canon EOS M6II is a great option, takes great photos, has easily the best APS-C sensor on the market, and all the lenses are small/lightweight.

Is the Olympus TG-6 the best rainy day/fishing camera? It seems to be the in the top of its field when it comes to rugged compacts, and it's the only one that can do RAW from what I can see. Been on the fence for a while, but I'm getting closer to nabbing one.

Not at the current price. It was on sale tons last year and they'll probably do more this year.With the 18-55mm or 16-80mm kit lens. The 18-55mm might arguably offer better landscapes since it has a wider aperture at the wide end. The 16-80mm will be a little more versatile in reaching something further away. But don't plan to shoot birds with it. You'll need at least a 400mm to do bird shooting.And a Laowa 65mm for your macro.

If you're willing to spend more, maybe the x100v.If I was willing to spend more, my first options would be the older x100 cameras, or even a Canon m100 with a tiny prime.What about some of those one inch sensor compact cameras for example?I really don't like my phone, it doesn't shoot raw, its jpg processing is horrendous, I can't get google camera to work on it, and besides the camera it's a phone I really like (super resistant to everything, 10000mAh battery, Blackview BV9500 plus if you're curious). If anyone knows a rugged phone with an actually good camera that shoots raw, that would also be an option, but I'd rather have my camera separate from my smartphone.
So with the announcement of the new Pentax K3-iii and it's ridiculous pricing should I leave Pentax and move to another system?Currently have the original K-3 which I got for 600 bucks with the 50/1.8, also have a 100mm macro and 55-300mmK3-iii is looking like it's going to cost more than the K1-ii and it's still not even close to the AF specs of anything from canikon or sony within the past several yearsShould I stick with Pentax and buy the K1-ii (surely their next full frame will be price gauged as their new APSC) or sell my gear and invest in a new camera system (and which one because I haven't been in the market or looking at what's out there for years now)?
>>3796075just buy a fucking iphone you pleb
>>37960751 inch isn't bad, and neither is MFT. Both are miles above your phone.
>>3795987That is a lot to accomplish well with $2k, but then again I don't believe in buying kit-quality lenses.D700 ~$250 (cheaped out here for good lenses)Nikon 24-70 f2.8 ~$600 (you don't need VR for landscapes, great for general shooting)Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR ~$800 (sports, you need the speed)TC-20E 2x TC ~$180 (use with the 70-200, decent for wildlife)Nikon 105 f2.8D ~$220 (best macro lens on a budget, hands down)Total: $2,050 You now have 3 high quality workhorse lenses that will last forever and a good body. I would suggest Canon equivalents but I just recently bought a Canon 6D and don't have a good feel for the used market's prices yet. The above is similar to my setup but instead of using a TC with my 70-200mm for wildlife I have a 200-500mm f5.6 VR. If you don't want a bulky 24-70 f2.8 for general shooting and landscapes a 24-85 VR is a good lens for the price (~$200 used) and then you can use the savings on a newer body. Spend $300 more on a body and get a D610 which is faster and has better low light performance for your sports and wildlife (this is what I have, my D700 is a backup). The D700 is a great camera, but the D610 is better all around. Less noise, better dynamic range, faster all around, and the extra resolution doesn't helps when you're doing macro and wildlife and want to crop tight.[EXIF data available.

>>3796143this is how I pocket my 70-200.
>>3795849That's funny, my DA 40 Ltd acts as a 40mm on my K-1. For normal equivalent on APS-C you are looking for the DA 21mm Ltd. Same high quality build and high IQ.
>>3796077>and it's still not even close to the AF specs of anything from canikonIt has auxiliary AF points, for every AF point you select you have 4 extra points surrounding it. picrel
>>3796077What's wrong with your K-3?
>>3795837Thanks. They do look compact. >>379584960mm is good for me for general walkaround use. 35mm on a APSC is ~53mm so it's not that much tighter. >>3796215That lens works on full frame too?! Didn't know that. How is your K1 treating you? Is it pretty large?

I just ordered a Nikon DF body......What are some good lenses to put on it which will keep the weight down? I don't mind old, MF lenses.[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Image-Specific Properties:
>>3796218only 25 cross-type
>>3795837>They're not *quite* as small as the Pentaxconsidering it's AF and Elec aperture control, it's size is impressive. There is a YN knockoff for Nikon which i'm tempted just for the size but i'm sure it's optics will be a gamble
>>3796251the MF 50 1.8 pancake lens would be ideal[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Image-Specific Properties:
>>3795985What are you planning on doing with it?If you want under water shots you are probably better off with one of those rugged compacts like the W300 or TG-6.It is very easy to get sand or something stuck between the seals on the AW1 causing it to flood.There used to be a ton of these 'for parts' on ebay.Also keep in mind that the Nikon 1 system is dead.
>>3793903How is that wrong? Explain yourself anon.
>>3793116Can you find images he took? I am sure they look terrible
>>3794274Instead of an entry level canon I would go for a 50D. They are just as cheap second hand but have a full magnesium body and are thus a lot more robust. You don't need to worry about damaging it as much.
what cameras are generally the best in low light situations? starting a PI job and need something that is easy to use at night time
>>3796307Generally, moar money + bigger gear = better low light. What is your budget, I figure that will be your primary concern. Next is form factor. If you want something tiny and concealable, that limits your options. If you can hulk around a brick, go get a big SLR.
>>3796307Full frame. Medium format digital will be out of budget for sure. Most full frame are basically the same in low light, regardless if it’s 12mp or 61mp. Higher mp = only noisier at 100% view but that’s way more enlarged, the noise is physically smaller and cancels out to basically the same as lower mp.But generally I’m assuming you’ll be in street light conditions at “night time”, which I find iso 1600-3200 range does well (without ibis), cities at night aren’t nearly as dark as people think and in your case it doesn’t matter how noisy or shitty something looks as long as the subject is clearly identifiable.How close or far will you be photographing the subject typically and what context do you want to show them in? You may simply want a medium telephoto zoom, like 70-200 or 70-180
Canon PowerShot G1X Mark III vs Fujifilm X100F. Which one is better?
Why are fixed aperture standard zoom EF lenses so god-damn expensive?EF is a pretty old system, and the prices seem crazy.>>3796332Why does the Canon resemble an Olympus OM-D camera?
>>3796332If you want a camera thats fun to take photos with then pick the Canon
>>3796332That Canon looks liek shit. X100F is by far the best out of these options and will be a lot more fun to use assuming you're happy with the fixed 35mm. . Image quality on both will be sufficient for your needs.
>>3796332Question really comes down to whether you want a capable camera or whether you are a tool who doesn’t know the difference between good image quality and sensor worms.
Thanks. I'll go with the G1X Mark III. The Fuji has better high iso performance but the G1X Mark III is weather-sealed, dustproof, smaller and has image stabilization.
>>3796332Canon, everyday of the week. Fuji sucks and prime lenses are for snobs. If you want to use primes why go for a bad 35mm instead of a fine 28mm focal length?
samsung sd over sandisk ?its cheaper and has slightly more writing speed...my last sandisk just broke...it can be viewed on my pc but the camera doesn't recognize it anymore
>>3796380>35mmBecause of Leica/LeitzThat's the most popular rangefinder length and as such almost everyone wants to emulate it>>3796381I tend to use both, but it seems that Samsung have better prices and presence for Micro SD while SanDisk has a greater presence for photography.Just get whatever's a better overall price for the capacity you need.You're almost certainly going to be bottlenecked by USB 2.0, unless your camera has USB 3.0/3.1.That is, unless you have a card reader that's USB 3.0. (I miss integrated SD card readers in PCs).
>>3796381>it can be viewed on my pc but the camera doesn't recognize it anymoredid you format it in a file system your camera can't see but pc can?
>>3796400not before i believe...but i formated it after it wasn't recognizable anymore...formated with exFAT on my pc...any suggestion maybe ?
>>3796351Wrong. The Canon will be more fun to use and won’t be half as frustrating as the Fuji. X100F is not a fun camera to use.
>>3796409Yes it is. I've owned the T, F and V.
I'm new to Nikon. What does Series E mean?
>>3796438Series E were budget manual focus lenses that prioritize light weight and compactness over image quality.
>>3796257Type E has some plastic and is pretty light and stubby. Not too bad.
>>3796381>128GBSlightly off topic; don't do this. Get a handful of smaller cards and a card holder/wallet. They take up practically no space and if you take a trip or something and one dies (it happens, even with good ones) you don't lose fucking everything.T. shoots in backup mode with twin SD cards since one of my high end CF cards died back in the CF-in-every-dslr days.

>>3796402try normal FAT (FAT32). then reformat it in camera if it shows up. always format in camera.
