Let’s say I’ve got an iso 8 film in my camera but it’s night time . Can I just change the iso Setting? How much can you change the iso on ,say 100 iso . Are some films more flexible than others with their iso

Slide film - you can try to push it a stop. Maybe two, and that's only ISO 32. And it'll look pretty bad.
Negative film - you could try to push it like 3 stops, maybe. ISO 64.

You won't be able to push this to a speed fast enough to hand hold, so you may as well put it on a tripod and not push the film at all.
>>
>>4100009
I’m going to take some night pictures at iso 8 . How does this make you feel ?
>>
>>4100008
No, you can’t just adjust the iso setting.

You can, however, underexpose or overexpose above what the meter says and then push or pull development later. The result is similar to digital. You get more grain and less detail in shadows. Print film actually benefits from overexposure somewhat, and I usually shoot at about 2/3 stop or one full stop above box speed.

>>4100026
>you can't just adjust the iso setting

>you wouldnt download a car


he CAN just adjust the iso setting. In fact if he's going to push/pull Its literally how you push or pull film correctly and still be able to meter the shot with your camera

the mitigating factor is is the stock of film being used and how much latitude that particular film has. As the other anon hinted at, something like Provia 100 is going to have a lot less latitude than Ilford delta 400 or cinestill 800.

The big issue is finding labs that can push/pull the film.

That said, OP should just get a tripod and do a long exposure and stop being retarded
>>
>>4100088
No? That’s not adjusting the iso setting, that’s pushing and pulling.
>>
>>4100017
>>4100026
>>4100088
>>4100102
you all seem to have missed that OP wants to mix box speed and "pushed" shots on the same roll.

>>4100008
Yes, you could set your meter to say 32 and push afterwards. But your iso 8 shots will be very dense and will have funky contrast and probably blown highlights.
Practically, you absolutely should not attempt to shoot your film at anything above 8. Film that slow is almost always also super high contrast and doesn't tolerate underexposure of any kind. Expect pushing to result in "soot and snow" pictures where there's either no exposure, or fully blown out exposure with almost nothing in between.
>>
Using box speed is the recommended way for predictable results.

How do I into proper printing?

What're the basics I should know for it? Lots of info online for the gear and techniques needed to take the photos but not much for the equipment that you can actually put them to paper with.

Just want to create nice photo albums and be able to create stuff I wouldn't be ashamed of framing.

I wanted to clean my brand new B+W filter because I have autism.
I wet a new microfiber cloth with distilled water, wiped the filter, and wiped it again with a clean dry microfiber cloth. Filter looks clean but if I shine my phone light through the filter I can see streaks and smears.
I went ahead and bought B+W lens cleaner spray and pec pads. Do I do the same thing? Spray pec pad, wipe filter, wipe again with dry pec pad?
>>
>>4100207
wipe your ass with the pec pad first, then clean the filter.
>>
>>4100208
Can you please give me a serious answer. I know dust on the front element or filter won't affect image quality but my autism prevents me from being OK with that.
I've tried Zeiss wipes and they always leave streaks or lint
I really don't know what to fucking do at this point
>>
>>4100209
wet wipe first, then dry wipe with a clean one
I use qtips and isopropyl, myself. If you let it dry by itself it'll develop streaks
good luck anon

do you have any specific questions
>>
>>4100240
Having bought a mirrorless for 155 euro+75 euro, I would say neither they probably are broken and riddled with so many hidden issue that they might as well be recycled at this price.
Probably much worse experience than just using your phone.

I would expect that both of these will overheat on summer and constantly reset the position of the lens and focus.

fuck man
i have this issue with all film cams i used before but im tired of wasting so much money so im looking at this cheaper price range

>>4100411
Do your lens have a slight seating problem?
Try to see which way to screw in the lens, and hold the camera by the lens+corpus in a way that prevents movement of the lens.
Obviously the camera has a mechanism that seats the lens in place, but it seemed to reduce the annoyance for me.

Never have I had this issue with a camera we bought brand new.
>>
>>4100413
sorry
what i meant with "this issue" is that i buy a used analog camera and it only brings issues and is full of some kind of bullshit/ somehow broken or whatever
>>
>>4100204
What are you trying to do, print at home? Just get a photo printer but don’t expect good quality. You’re better off outsourcing your prints because paper and ink still costs $$$.

Just remember to set your dpi to 300 when exporting and obviously export the highest resolution possible. Experiment with different papers for the print look you want to achieve. I like to use Whitewall for printing because they carry premium fujifilm papers as well as do glicee and the price and customer service is good. At lot of printers out there dont say exactly what paper they use they’ll just “metallic” or “premium” or their own marketing name for a brand name paper.

Ive also made canvas prints from Printique that came out high quality.

You can also order prints with watermarks for a significant discount if you just want to save money and test papers.

Don’t invest in a home printer until you have lots of experience ordering prints and finding out what you like.

If I use an iso 100 film and slap a k2 filter in front of my lens couldn't i decrease my cameras iso setting to 50 instead of stopping down? I don't want to change the depth of field of the photo.

Yes I photographed my photo because my scanner is broken ATM.
>>
>>4100635
My dumbass meant increase iso to 200
>>
>>4100635
>couldn't i decrease my cameras iso setting to 50 instead of stopping down
If your meter is inside the camera then you don't do either - most meters correctly compensate for a yellow filter.
If you set your meter to 50 and take a reading without the filter then whatever it says will be correct with the filter for 100 film. You can of course adjust shutter and aperture to anything that keeps the exposure the same.
>>
>>4100636
in that case no, setting the speed to 200 would underexpose by 1 stop, same as setting it to 200 without a filter.
setting it to 200 and taking a reading without the filter would underexpose by 2 stops which is pretty much fatal for shadow detail.
>>
>>4100638
I'm shooting on a Nikon FM, I doubt that the built in meter can correct a yellow filter, since it's so old there's no digital technology at all in the camera.

Your advice is to just not compensate the filter? I've been compensating the filter by stopping down one stop so far.
I just hoped there was a way I didn't have to compensate with the aperture/shutter speed settings
>>
>>4100639
>>4100639

My train of thought is this:
You're right I intend to half the cameras iso setting compared to my films iso to make the camera interpret the light intensity twice as high as it should be (I'm overexposing by one stop) which then should be corrected through the filter which only lets half of the intensity of the light pass into my camera
Where's my mistake in that reasoning?

Most concerts don’t allow cameras so it would need to be small or discrete as well

I had an issue like that with extension tubes a few days ago
since they are empty I just slammed them flat on the table and after that I could begin to unscrew them
for your case I suggest laying it on a rubber mat that wont slip, laying onother one over it and then trying to turn it while applying downward pressure. The rubber will grip the rim above and below and with flat palm you should be able to unscrew them

Anything that specifically makes you think that? It's either AP or Reuters photo, I forget which, would reporters lug around reflector screens? And do they have enough range to illuminate the people?

I like how the shadowed parts of the people are properly exposed despite shooting against bright light, if this is done with a reflector I'd be tempted to get one.

I'm trying very cheap and generic hardware to get into astrophotography and I'm switching between two dedicated cameras and my Galaxy s21 camera. The phone takes way better pictures as the other is a shitty lumix that offers no control and the other is a cheap entry Fuji camera I won in a bid for $15.

So far, the phone camera isn't the that bad but all three pieces of equipment have their short comings but they all share not enough exposure time.

Galaxy s21 allows a 50iso with 20 second exposure.
Fuji allows a 8 second exposure (but still has a shit time capturing light)
Lumix offers no control beyond 4 second exposure manual or 30 second exposure with an auto mode.

Is there any sort of software hack I can do to force longer exposures or is it a literal hardware limitation?

for common portrait framing, it puts you at a camera to subject distance where perspective distortion is pretty flattering
gives you more subject isolation than a 50, and much more common / smaller / cheaper / versatile, than 105-135mm lenses which are also great for portraits
portrait work is done at all kinds of focal lengths, they just give a different look and may be better/worse for the type of portrait you are going for
>>4103805
best case, it's basically the same
most cases it's close enough to not care, but probably slightly worse, and always run the risk of clipping shadows
in many cases, it's much worse, picrel is a few models at iso 100 and pushed 5 stops in post

I'm doing a small, paid photo gig in a few weeks' time. Nothing special, just a friend hosting an event for an organisation and they want some snaps. Is $50 (CAD) a reasonable ask for two hours of photographing? I want $50 for it but $40 is more tame and I could ask for that too without being too bothered.
>>
>>4103656
85mm is just a good focal length, that's all! :)
>>
>>4103984
it's EXTREME lowballing to the point that if it wasn't your friend, you'd probably be declined because it's suspiciously low. If you were doing it for the friend personally, sure, that's cool to cover the cost of transport and shit but doing it in any professional capacity it's way too low.
If it's a charity/non-profit/educational organization, go with $100 as a courtesy. If it's anything corporate, at least $200 depending how much editing is involved and how far do you have to travel.

no because they run at different voltages and i wouldnt be willing to try unless you wanna risk damaging both the camera and the flash
>>
>>4103831
because the angle you see the damage isnt the only angle light hits the sensor on that spot. The overlap of different angles of light hitting the sensor will cover up minor stuff but with enough pixel peeping and/or damage/fungus/whatever will soften up the image and cause defects.

Well like I said, I was going to be there anyway so I didn't think to charge for transportation costs. Editing is basically irrelevant because presetting with my Foojee is good enough for my personal shots and will likely be just fine for some event candids; it's either me or someone with their smartphone, so I have an achievable standard set for me. I'm skilled, but this is my first-ever paid gig, so I don't know of my skillset demands a high price.
That said, you've given me good information and I agree with what you're saying I think I could comfortably charge $80 but I'll sit on it and try to convince myself to ask more. More money is better, but I'd feel guilty asking for too much

thanks for the advice, is the built in flash really that bad? didn’t see any reviews mention it for some reason

>>
>>4104637
I quickly grew to dislike mine, mainly for its shutter sound (and it has no silent shooting option), but also the general ux.
You will want to use a RAW workflow as its jpeg engine is horrible, especially the denoising at higher iso values.
If you do not mind the extra size you will have more fun with a DSLR at this price range.
>>
>>4104647
Built in flash is weak, drains your battery fast, has a slow recycle time, and tends to create flat looking photos. It's barely any good as a fill flash for backlit conditions. Call it an emergency flash when you just want something documented and don't have a lot of kit with you.

A "real" flash has a wider power range, a zoom head for focusing the light, and can move the bulb to bounce light around the room letting you use it creatively to illuminate your subject in a 3-dimensional fashion. Off camera use enhances that even further. You can stick pretty much anything on the flash head to change the light it puts out if you own tape. You can also use wireless triggers and multiple flashes to sculpt the shadows and highlights however the hell you want, and most of them come with a modelling light that can act as continuous illumination for video or a rough preview of the flashed image. Generally a flash is a flash so even cheap chinese made flashes like godox/flashpoint are as good as any others as long as they support the TTL implementation your camera uses.
>>
>>4104649
unless the shutter sound gives me hearing damage and calls me a virgin to all nearby I think i’ll be OK
as for the ux, I’ve read it’s not that great but honestly I’m pretty used to navigating horribly designed menus so I don’t think I’ll have that much trouble with it, plus all the buttons are customizable which should sidestep having to navigate it a bunch
I don’t mind the extra size of a DSLR but since I’m totally new to the business I don’t really know what to even start with at this price point

>>4104655
Really appreciate the advice! I’ve heard the battery life is pretty poor (but I don’t mind taking extra with me) so it’s good to know the flash makes it even worse
