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 .

>>4100008Slide 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.
>>4100009I’m going to take some night pictures at iso 8 . How does this make you feel ?
>>4100008No, 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.
>>4100024I dont know about that other guy but I get mad as fuck when people waste resources. get raped
>>4100026>you can't just adjust the iso setting>you wouldnt download a carhe 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 camerathe 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
>>4100088No? That’s not adjusting the iso setting, that’s pushing and pulling.
>>4100017>>4100026>>4100088>>4100102you all seem to have missed that OP wants to mix box speed and "pushed" shots on the same roll.>>4100008Yes, 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.

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?
>>4100207wipe your ass with the pec pad first, then clean the filter.
>>4100208Can 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 lintI really don't know what to fucking do at this point
>>4100209wet wipe first, then dry wipe with a clean oneI use qtips and isopropyl, myself. If you let it dry by itself it'll develop streaksgood luck anon
cant decide which i should get. any recommendation or tip or comment?
>>4100198unless you plan to spend your holiday taking portraits of people and distant landscapes only then the zoom, no question.
>>4100247Let's be real, that camera is going to be left in the hotel room and their iPhone will handle normal camera duties.
>>4100198i have the a6600 and both lensesdo you have any specific questions
>>4100240Having 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.
>>4100410fuck mani 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
>>4100411Do 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.
>>4100413sorrywhat 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
>>4100204What 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.
>>4100635My dumbass meant increase iso to 200
>>4100635>couldn't i decrease my cameras iso setting to 50 instead of stopping downIf 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.
>>4100636in 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.
>>4100638I'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>>4100639My 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 cameraWhere's my mistake in that reasoning?
I’m getting rid of my iPhone 14 pro for a Samsung phone which has a worse camera , I love my iPhones camera as I primarily use it for concerts for videos and pictures, I don’t want to use the Samsungs camera for this, does anyone know a good camera I could get instead? Most concerts don’t allow cameras so it would need to be small or discrete as well
This photo had to be taken with a flash, right?

So how do I disattach two stuck to each other filters?
>>4101211I had an issue like that with extension tubes a few days agosince they are empty I just slammed them flat on the table and after that I could begin to unscrew themfor 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
When you use the evf do you close your other eye?

I need the "it's a Pentax" meme, the one with the crying blacks. Anyone?
>>4100723Anything 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.

Why is 85mm supposed to be for portraits?
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?

Why would I commit to increasing my ISO when I can just make it brighter in post if I need to? Both seem to have the exact same affect on the final photo.
>>4103656usually a focal that can still be very fast, focal distortion is not disfiguring, still small enough to minimise camera shake
I have a lens which appears to have some internal damage to the glass that I can only see from a very specific angle when I shine light on it. As far as I can tell, it doesn't affect my images. How is this possible? Also, how would this impact the value of the lens when I sell it?
>>4103805so you can use faster shutter speeds or smaller apertures?
>>4103656for common portrait framing, it puts you at a camera to subject distance where perspective distortion is pretty flatteringgives you more subject isolation than a 50, and much more common / smaller / cheaper / versatile, than 105-135mm lenses which are also great for portraitsportrait 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>>4103805best case, it's basically the samemost cases it's close enough to not care, but probably slightly worse, and always run the risk of clipping shadowsin 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.
>>410365685mm is just a good focal length, that's all! :)
>>4103984it'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.
>>4104047Damn, really? I was going off the fact that I would have been there anyway and bringing my camera is literally free. I guess I'm selling myself short, but I don't like feeling like I'm taking advantage
anyone used the gx7 mark iii?I need a lightweight camera to take hiking
>>4104087Googling around the minimum wage in Canada seems to be around ~$15 depending on province. So you're asking for $10 over minimum wage to cover>transportation time and cost>gear amortization>time spent editing>insurance/tax if applicable Literally no skilled professional in almost any trade would ask anywhere near that low.

>>4104410no because they run at different voltages and i wouldnt be willing to try unless you wanna risk damaging both the camera and the flash
>>4103831because 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.
>>4104196Well 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
>>4104410Yes, you can use as a manual flash it in a cold shoe with a PC sync cable.
about to buy a sony a6000 (with the 16-50mm lens it comes with) for 359+tip, how bad of an idea is this for my first camera?
>>4104637not a bad ideapick up a TTL flash with a tilt/swivel head and one of these $5 cables. don't worry about buying lenses yet unless you want more zoom.
>>4104638thanks for the advice, is the built in flash really that bad? didn’t see any reviews mention it for some reasonI’ll definitely grab one though, any recommendations on some decently inexpensive ones?
>>4104637I 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.
>>4104647Built 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.
>>4104649unless the shutter sound gives me hearing damage and calls me a virgin to all nearby I think i’ll be OKas 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 bunchI 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>>4104655Really 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
Super noob photographer here. Purchased some stupid chinkshit SD card reader and it corrupted all the images I took on this long weekend. Got a better reader and paid 40 bucks for some software to recover them, but wondering about the best way to prevent this from happening again. Can the write protect switch on my SD card prevent them from getting corrupted? Or does it not matter? Can you even upload photos with it turned on? If not what is the use case for this switch?

What should I be looking for when buying old lenses off of eBay so I don't get fucked?
>>4104888if the listing doesnt disclose the details of the lens thoroughly, 9/10 theres something wrong with it. "throughly" meaning: "It has no fungus, no haze, no nothing, aperture blades are fine and no oil and AF works". Stuff like that because then ebay will give you your money back without question. Any listings with "As is" is also bullshit unless you dont mind. Any numpty can take a peak through a lens and see if theres any notable defects and if the aperture blades move imo

Getting into photography and my friend gave me his canon t7i with a 18-55mm lens. However, I have a samsung s22 ultra, so would the canon be able to outdo the ultra, even with the age and significant cost difference?
>>4105190what's your definition of "outdo"?
>>4105190it would roughly equal it if you looked at social media sized photos - for printing photos and viewing the real files on large screens, it would do a bit better. less optical zoom range with that lens maybe? mostly you would have more control and more convenient control over the camera and the possibility of using a more sophisticated flash setup and more specialized lenses
getting into photography as a fun hobby. is there any "beginner" budget cameras out there? i'd say my budget is like 200 bucks. I imagine these suckers go for like 2 thousand bucks
>>4105190most cameras post 2012 or so dont age as bad as you might think. a 24MP APS-C sensor from 2017 will still kick asses without a question.As for vs smartphone, it will "outdo" it in every way but if you just upload photos to insta, you can probably get away with it. The only big difference on social media would be way better low light performance, telephoto, and action shots. Most people nowadays use both camera + smartphone, camera for good pictures/when needed, smartphone for snapshitting. >>4105195look around for 2nd hand stuff like on facebook marketplace or so for interchangeable lens systems and go for the cheapest ones. Early Nikons are really nice and they are cheap where im from, like D90 etc. If you have the choice, pick the system that in the future you would want so you can save money on lenses.
What's the difference between noise and grain?
>>4105199grain is a relic from the film era that used to be tied to noise (bigger grain more noise) but in digital photography its artificial. Noise is your standard ISO/light quality artifacts.
>>4105199noise is literally noise. correctly called read noise. it's unwanted electrical charges that aren't related to the signal the sensor should be picking up. you get more noise with a higher ISO because ISO on digital is just decibels of signal gain that correspond roughly to the effect of moving up to that sensitivity with film. more gain and you amplify the noise, making it more noticeable.grain is literally grains. B&W film photographs are made out of millions of tiny grains of silver, developed from light-activated silver halide crystals. color films have chunks of dye instead that are converted from light-activated silver crystals paired with dyes. film with smaller grain can record more detail but takes more exposure to light to activate enough of the tiny crystals (grains) since each grain receives less light. more time in a developer bath will give less-exposed crystals more time to be converted into solid grains or silver or develop into fixable dye clouds.
>>4105214By why is grain considered acceptable while noise isn't? They're both a similar granular distortion of the scene that the camera is seeing.
>>4105220Grain looks natural because it kind of is. Noise looks like pixels fucking up because it is.
>>4105220One of them is looks aesthetic
Pics that are a little underexposed (max -1) look good through the viewfinder because of contrast but dark and dull on my computer screen when i transfer the fotos. And also prints are a bit dark. How do i know whats the correct view of what im getting?
>>4105281>underexposes by a full stop>why the pictures dark on screen and printplease die
>>4105282But why dont they look dark on the viewfinder that shows what the pic will look like
>>4104670Just plug the camera directly
>>4105281>>4105283Check your viewfinder brightness settings if you're using EVF.
>>4105281Screens should not be trusted unless hardware calibrated and in a trustworthy surrounding. Use your histogram, especially if you have an electronic viewfinder and are able to always have it visible. Your computer knows your data better than your eye.
>>4105220I like the look of noise as well. Don't let the gearfags talk it down.
>>4105220During the film era photographers and film producers mostly tried to minimize grain as much as possible.Embracing grain is more of a contemporary thing.In 30 years we will probably have photographers making their digital photos noisy on purpose too.
>>4100008Is FF really worth it? I mean, what does it bring other than 1 more stop or so, at the expense of pricier everything, bigger everything and weightier everything?
>>4105410>pricierhah, not really>bigger and weightiernot with true physical equivalence. you can use smaller crappier lenses on FF too. no one is stopping you. the crop sensor doesn't really increase the focal length. if you have the same mp or better density, cropping on a bigger sensor gets the same field of view.>inb4 that retard who thinks cropping an image after the fact increases the amount of noise in the remaining image because he doesn't understand that read noise is only applied once
>>4105415>>inb4 that retard who thinks cropping an image after the fact increases the amount of noise in the remaining image because he doesn't understand that read noise is only applied onceThe amount of noise doesn't change but SNR does. Because you're using less light.
>>4105420No. Listen. You can not change the SNR by cutting out part of the image. Noise and signal are roughly evenly distributed. SNR is only applied once. Light only hits the sensor once. You are, basically, cutting a checkerboard in half.You can make the noise and signal bigger trying to enlarge a small crop as much as the large original, but you shouldn't enlarge smaller images as much anyways and the crop from the image that had a lower SNR and more dynamic range will still look a bit better.
>>4105410It depends of what you intend to do with your camera. If you don't know it most likely is not worth it for you.
>>4105421its true but irrelevant in the FF vs. others debate because no one is buying or making the 80mp full frame cameras needed to equal the pixel density of current crop sensors (yet). it is however relevant in APSC stomping all over MFT because it's a dying format that's only good for video.
>>4105410more detail/resolution from the lensshallower depth of fieldthe low light performance is really not as big of a difference on full frame as people say, its just less noise from high iso but modern apsc cameras can go very high in iso with barely any noise nowadays anywaybuy full frame if you're a professional or you're rich or you've been a photographer for a long time and you're 100% sure you want itbuy apsc if you're anything else
>>4105420You're ignoring the fact that you're using less noise, too. You're removing parts of the image that contain both signal and noise at the same ratio as the remaining part of the image
>>4105281kek you need to adjust the EVF's brightness
>>4105410the general rule is:if you have to ask, then it is not worth it for YOU.

If you want a job with this stuff you might only be accepted as a second/assistant with full frame. If you take a lot of handheld photos in the dead of the night full frame would be nice too.
>>4105569i bet you could put together a D890 setup that blew all that out of the water. no IBIS THOUGH.
>>4105570IBIS is a crutch though
>>4105587A crutch for not turning your ISO up, buying faster glass, bringing a tripod, or putting your camera away. What a terrible crutch.The real crutch is adjustable ISO and ISO invariant sensors. Back in the day if the light wasn't good for your film and you didn't have a tripod or wanted to take a picture of something that moved you bought a second camera or one of those nice ones with interchangeable backs. Yeeeeep. *sip* Bronica. Now that was a camera.
>>4105592>what is flash?back in the day people also weren't so concerned with clinical sharpness either even fine art film photos were historically on some level a little blurry or out of focus
>>4105593>what is flashA large device that bothers people and has a totally different look from ambient light so throw that in a "cope for not buying more gear" category
>>4105598>what is onboard flash>what is dialing in flash and using gel pads to match ambient lighting>what even is photography?ah.. you're the spray and pray type i guess, nvm.. go by more gear, you clearly need IBIS
>>4105601>onboard flash - changes the way the photo looks>gels - buy more gear, carry more gear!>even cheap shit cameras have IBISIBIS is an anti-gear feature. It comes standard on extremely cheap cameras and reduces the amount of shit you need to buy and carry to take a photo - the tripod. You can buy an expensive D850 and get no IBIS, or a $200 olympus and get IBIS. It's anti-gear.Flash isn't even relevant to it anyways. Flash is what was used before shot-to-shot ISO adjustments, but has more artistic use than just raising the shutter speed. it's an entirely different look.
>>4105601>gratuitous flash use>not spray and pray>long shutter speeds with IBIS instead of a tripod>spray and pray
>>4105614>but has more artistic use than just raising the shutter speed>most camera flash sync is 1/60 to 1/125kek outing yourself as a nophoto here
>>4105622Mine syncs at any speed but the default is 1/200. Thank you, china. Obviously it's raising the shutter speed if it's dark out anyways, which is why built in flashes are mostly for getting an acceptable shutter speed in a dark room. Outing yourself as a nophoto here. Thinking IBIS replaces flash when it replaces tripod. The word "stabilization" is key there.IBIS lets you shoot with less gear. Objectively. It's anti-gear. And a standard feature. A fucking phone has IBIS.
>>4105623>buying a new camera is anti-gearok
>>4105627>already having a proper camera from before IBIS was availablealright gramps. never stop buying rolls of film for your old nikon F. that'll show the camera industry.
>>4105644keep buying each new release of camera zoomer, that'll show the camera industry you're anti-gear sentiment
>>4100008Hello non-stupid peopleI'm trying out film after many years, and doing the hipster disposable thingDropped my Funsaver yesterday and noticed there's now a bit of a gap in the casing just behind the flash (picrel)Is that gonna have caused a light leak and fucked the rest of the roll up?I know I could cover it with electrical tape, but these cameras shoot "backwards" so the remaining roll may be ruined. But it does mean that existing exposures should be safe right?Wondering whether to cut my losses and get it developed now, despite only using a quarter of the roll
>>4105742If it's of any consolation I reloaded a disposable and the film wouldn't advance because I fucked up. Inside my uber ride I disassembled it to unjam it inside of my black yet translucent jacket... it came out fine in the end. Shoot the rest of the roll, knowing that it might not come out with anything of value. It's a gamble, but you have nothing to lose. Which losses would you cut?
>>4105750Aye that's a fair point. Probably being overly paranoid about how tolerant film is since I've not touched it in like 15 yearsI guess if I knew for certain it was fucked I'd rather get a new one rather than continuing to take pictures on this and have them all wasted. I mean, half of my motivation for trying film is to try and make each shot "worth" more (hopelessly cliched, I know), so it would be more significant than losing random phone pics
>>4105753>I mean, half of my motivation for trying film is to try and make each shot "worth" more (hopelessly cliched, I know), so it would be more significant than losing random phone picsthat's a good mindset, even though you can apply it even to phone pics (I do it). Ironically with film I get more wasteful because of the ease of cocking the shutter even in my pocket, but I'm into reloading so YMMV.
>Recent used cameras are at best sold at the same price, and most of the time higher, than if I buy directly for brand new on the grey marketIs there any point in buying used, rather than buying from the grey market? I mean, it's not like I'm having any warranty either when buying used, or if from actual shops, it'll be 6 months and pricier anyway.
>>4105766if Nikon, go used since they won't service grey marketmost major used dealers have at least some kind of warranty for peace of mind, like Keh has 180 dayson an extreme hypothetical level, could argue that supporting grey market in the long run hurts smaller camera shops but that's not a concern for most peoplesome older cameras sometimes were locked in ways to the region (languages or like 50p video instead of 60p)but 99% of the time, grey market is fine

>>4100008Sony Alpha 7 II in 2000 + 22 and forward, Y / N?Looking at this thing:https://www.saturn.de/de/product/_sony-alpha-7-m2-kit-ilce-7m2k-2750308.html
>>4106138It's fine at that price. Keep in mind that lens is trash. If you can find a used R7II at the same price that's the better choice. A7II is definitely dated but it's literally half the cost of A7III, so for the price of the better body you can get the worse one and some decent glass.
>>4105782>buy used nikon>oops its from japan>camera breaks, camera breaks forever >should have paid $300 extra at the authorized dealer, oy vey!Nikon hates you. Buy canon or sony. Preferably sony.
>>4106210I want to take both Picture sand Videos, so I settled on the 7 II and not the R7II or the S7II. Just wanted to know if it's still good for the coming say 5 years or so.>If you can find a used R7II at the same price that's the better choice.I've heard that the shutters give up easily on the 7 II and that newly bought would be better. I always buy used over new if I know that I'm going to get a good deal, tangent but I bought a used but fully upgraded Ender 3 Pro (3D Printer) for 90€.Any insights to this?>so for the price of the better body you can get the worse oneWait the what now?
>>4106341For stills it's good enough but for video I'm not so sure. Cameras came a long way when it comes to video. With buying used, the thing is Sony is a popular system, so you can often find low mileage bodies on second hand market. I bought my A7II with 6.5k shutter activations, but that was two years back. >Wait the what now?For the price of A7III body alone, you can buy A7II and a decent lens(or a very good one if you buy a prime). Depends on your budget if that's worth for you.
>>4106342I don't have the biggest budget, if money wasn't an issue I'd just get the newest whatever you have Alpha 7 IV and I'd ask for lenses here instead.What would be a high shutter activation count for a mirror-less camera? I come from a film background and my weapon of choice was the Canon AE-1 up until now.>For the price of A7III body alone, you can buy A7II and a decent lensAh, yes, I saw the Alpha 7 III prices.Say I say "screw it" and open my mind to any mirror-less system-cam in that price range (up to 800€ish +/-100), what should go for if I want a solid all-rounder?
When don't you want the light meter at 0? I've been told shooting in manual and aiming for 0 may as well be shooting in automatic. Is this true? I don't get it, because I can still control everything, I'm just aiming for my photos not to be too dark or bright.
>>4106213Does sony honor international warranties? The A7IV in my country is $500 usd cheaper than US retail pricing and when I asked the store about warranty they said it's only honored in my country

For example’s sake, let’s say you are looking at a lens to purchase. The lens is offered in 25mm lens for mft, apsc, and full frame. For the full frame this is truly 25mm, the apsc ~33mm, and 50mm for the mft when compared to full frame equivalency. My question is…Does the lens truly gain zoom distance, or is it the restriction of the FOV by decreasing sensor size that gives the lens its mm value for APSC and MFT? That is to say, if you had the lens on each of the above sensor sizes, and you were taking a picture of a dog, would the dog ‘look’ to be the same distance on the 25mm Full Frame as the 25mm (really 50mm) Micro Four Thirds lens, just with a decreased FOV? Or would the dog be ‘closer’ on the MFT lens than the Full Frame?
Do people really use these exposition knobs? I never ever change exposition, and if somehow I need to, I'll just do it in RAW as I basically never go over +0.5 or -0.5
Shooting portraits - how do I know when to use f1.4 vs f1.8
>>4100008Tell it to me straight /p/, Sony NEX 6 or Olympus E-P3. On a budget, not really looking to spend more than 400 CAD. Should I consider the GX7? Will take recommendations for any other compacts with MFT or APS-C sensors. I'll be taking photos of moving subjects, so that is a main factor for me. Low light performance as well. Can't really find any affordable fujis so I think that won't be a possibility. Looking to get back into the game after selling my DSLR years ago and flipping my mju's.
>>4107350I bet that you don't even know what metering modes your camera has.
>>4107350I'm under the impression that these knobs (or setting) are just a software way of brightening an image, so I don't use them. >>4107205I think most cameras do. I'm pretty sure my camera (fuji xt100) does but I never mess with it.>>4106537It depends.The 0 helps you determine if you want to expose for shadows or highlights/brights in an image (up to you). It's actually based off some neutral gray color.Which also varies whether the meter is detecting a spot or an area, otherwise you could be exposing for the wrong thing.If you're using flash in a studio it can help you calculate the exposure for when the lights flash.It can also be used for calculating zones in film photography.There's a lot of information explaining how to use them though.
>>4107350>>4107394>I'm under the impression that these knobs (or setting) are just a software way of brightening an image, so I don't use them. Its there so you dont blow out/underexpose your highlights and shadows especially in difficult lighting because a camera's metering system isnt always good. Mirrorless has made this so handy; if you notice your sky is too bright and its clipping, you can just use the EV dial and fix the image and see the histogram.
>>4107406doesn't that underexpose your shadows too?
Hello friends,I bought a Nikon D2Xs several years ago and its viewfinder looked like pic related, when I received it.It was just a central circle (until it reached the top and bottom) with darkness in the corners.You could see into the darkened portions by moving your eye to the opposite side of the eyecup, but even more of the near side would be occluded.I set it aside and when I picked it back up a few days ago, (using the same lens) it's gone; the viewfinder is completely clear.What happened?I would have been using if not for this issue.
>>4105569Man, I'm planning to spend $400 on camera maximum. I thought to buy something like used 5d markII. But actually I'd like something smaller.

>>4107421theres a balance, i just go off the histogram combined with what it looks like. In digital photography, its better to sacrifice shadows than blowing out highlights because its much easier to recover the shadows.
>>4107497>But actually I'd like something smaller.Your only option for small and cheap is EOS MDigital cameras are much newer electronic products than most and they've only been miniaturized/refined recently.That means you're stuck with cheap bulky equipment or expensive compact equipment.The only small vintage examples (Leica M8, Epson R-D1) have a heavy hipster tax excised on them.[EXIF data available.

>>4107497Then you don't want full frame. Enjoy your olympus E-M5.
>>4107258nigga do you have brain problems
>>4107258They're called crop sensors. If you take a picture of a dog on your FF camera w/ 25mm lens, take off that same lens and slap it onto the body of a MFT, the dog will be "zoomed in" to a 50mm equiv, therefore you need to step away. Because the crop sensor cannot reach the light the full frame lens is projecting.I can see your confusion but you're thinking too much into it. All lenses are designed around full frame focal lengths. If you want a 90mm portrait lens, on MFT you'll buy a 45mm lens. The only difference between full frame and crop glass is the size because you dont need to project as big of a image to a crop sensor.
>>4107548Just think crop lenses = full frame lenses with the corners chopped off
I take about 1500 pictures per event. I used to do RAW + JPEG but recently switched to RAW only to save on SD card space.Is there a quick way to export all 1500 pictures at 50% resolution so I can quickly review which ones I want to keep?
>>4107562what the fuck? import the raws and tag them in your editor. delete the ones you don't want.
>>4107573I don't like deleting things so when I say "which ones I want to keep" I mean something like "the ones I take out of storage"when I first started out my process was:>resize all JPEGs to 50% for faster viewing (full res JPEGs take 3-5 seconds to load on my laptop which mean really annoying reviews)>pick out the shots I like>move the full sized JPEGs of shots I like to special foldershooting RAW + JPEG took up too much SD card space/write times so swapped to RAW onlyI want to export all my RAWs to half resolution JPEGs so I can quickly review and re-export the ones I like at full resolution

This is probably a silly question, but...does ISO performance from same size sensors change drastically? I've been looking at some 6400 ISO photos from a Fuji X-E4 and they look fine. Meanwhile anything over 2000 ISO on my canon M50 mark II looks borderline unusable. It's possible the film simulation helped mask the noise. That or the Fuji sensor is much better at handling noise.
>>4107852Fuji uses X-Trans sensors which is different from standard sensors used by sony/nikon/canon etc. X-Trans 3 especially is amazing with ISO performance, to the point where i've been happy with 12800 ISO performance in colour on smaller images. X-Trans 4 on your XE-4 is also great but yeah, they will differ.
>>4107859Oh, I see. The X-E4 was not mine, but I'm considering selling my canon and the 4 lenses I own to migrate to the Fuji side. The better ISO performance, the physical dials, the film simulations, the position of the viewfinder (I hate bumping my nose on the screen while using the centered viewfinder of my M50), and even the design of the camera itself (although not as important as the other factors).
>>4107863play around with the settings on your canon before making the call imo because you should be able to achieve comparable results. Have you tried increasing noise reduction on your canon? I know I and a lot of other fuji users set their noise reduction to -3 and -4 (max) because of how aggressive it can be.OFC thats not the same as using a different camera with better ISO performance but im strictly speaking as a non-gear fag. I'm drooling over the new OM-1 because of personal preference, so pick the fuji if you personally think its good, like you said film sims and ergonomics.
>>4107864Yeah, I can get decent results with a fast lens (at the cost of a shallowed DoF than I sometimes would haver preferred, to keep ISO bellow 1600). I should probably stick with my M50 for at least 5 or 6 years, I know I'll lose money trying to sell it and make the switch. I wish I had researched more before before going with Canon as my first dedicated camera. At the time it seemed like the ''safe'' option.
