Joby GorillaPod 5k editionOld >>4117158
what are the best compacts that have a focal length around 40mm (FF equiv)? i know there is the ricoh GR one (the newest one i think). unironically wouldnt mind micro 4/3 because i love having tons in focus, i just dont want some bulky shit and huge lens.i have a fuji x-s10 and x-e2 that i am going to sell because i dont like evfs and the fuji 27mm pancake never appealed to me idk why
>>4121424The Panasonic 20mm prime (so 40mm equiv) is basically a pancake and optically quite good, though its focusing motor is rough for continuous/video or hunting in ultra low light (but I just manual focus by default with back button single AF anyways). The slightly nicer but still old v2 one would spend a lot of time married to my GX85 and the package has decent handling and is pretty compact though not quite pants-pocketable. Probably the GRiiix is a no brainer in that space though if you prioritize size and don't need an EVF. Been heavily tempted to try one myself since 40mm is probably my "default" focal length for casual shooting, but I get noided about the prospect of sensor dust with the design.
>Sigma 60-600mm FE lens retail price is 297,000 yen (around $2,200)This lens will be dead on arrival.People will just be buying the native Sony 200-600mm instead and enjoy the shorter zoomfactor (better image quality)
That rumored FE 20-70 F4.0 G could be the perfect travel lens for me, but if the rumored price is right, I'd rather go with the 24-105 G instead and maybe grab a 20mm F1.8 G.
>>4121424Well there's always Leica.....
>>4121424>the fuji 27mm pancake never appealed to me idk whythis is just a silly take. the Fuji 27mm pancake is exactly what you want. combine it with an X-E series camera and you've got a really compact setup.[EXIF data available.

I want to buy an EDC camera - the typical walkaround and trip snapshits; 99% stills and in that I will aim at jpegs, if I'd like to get more serious or use specialized lenses, I have trusty D750. I was kind of set for Ricoch GR IIIx, when saw used (~40k frames) Fuji X100F Black Noir for similar price. Image quality should be similar between these two so the choice will come down to the mobility. Can anyone tell me, in real-world usage, how pocketable the X100F is? Do I need to bring a bag for it, or is it possible to carry it comfortably in jacket pocket or fanny bag? Does the viewfinder is big enough to use while wearing glasses?Thanks!
Thoughts about peak design tripod? What's the differenc between the aluminum and the fiber the carbon fiber one because the difference is from about like $300 so, is it only the weight? Is it that much?
>>4121508Sorry I made this post with the voice recorder so it came bit bad but its a cool feature
>>4121508when it is cold your hand won't freeze to the carbon legs. also weight
>>4121508Weight can be a big factor for full-size tripods, meaning it will decide if you will take the tripod with you or not. If you are set for the PD tripod and have the budget, you can't go wrong with carbon, although the last legs section look flimsy - maybe just don't use it in high wind. I still prefer even smaller models, they get the job done 95% of time for me and here I can recommend Leofoto LS-223c. If, however, you are on the budget and aluminum is your choice, you can use electrical cloth tape to mitigate the effects in the cold. I use it on a tabletop aluminum tripod, works great.
>>4121612A small correction for my shortcut: by saying "maybe just don't use it' I meant the last sections. Sorry.
What's better:Canon EOS M (1st gen, 2012 mirrorless)orSony Xperia 1 IV (2022 flagship phone)The phone actually has a variable lens (look it up), 4k/120fps video, etc. Or is it never gonna beat the bigger sensor size of a 'proper' camera?
>>4121710Lens only give you better colorSensor is where all the light congregate and become a picture
>>4121711>Lens only give you better colorAnd sharpness, and depth of field, and lots of other things.
>>4121715Yep, but all those will congregate in the sensor. So small sensor is still not enough. This is why the computer inside will smoothen everything. Sure it will look good on the phone and average monitor. But there's a reason professional photographer still use larger sensor cameras.
>>4121722You're wrong. What I mean is the lens controls nearly everything in terms of image quality, unlik what you claimed.In this case the lens is too small to do any good, regardless of sensor size.
>>4121727>lens controls nearly everything in terms of image qualityThat's the old reason when photography still using film. Even Velvia pics will look bad if you use shitty lens.Now sensors have different techs. For example Foveon (sensor exclusive for Sigma cameras) have three sensors, each capturing one specific color. Or How Fuji have their patented tech on their sensor.
>>4121758>For example FoveonThat's just 1 step forward when the digital sensor was 3 steps backwards.Whenever you use this argument it becomes a dishonest argument.>Or How Fuji have their patented tech*better marketing shills.Nothing you have said is overall correct. You are simply mistaken and mislead.
>>4121760So you claim that all camera brand makers are liars?
>>4121762No, I'm saying you're full of bullshit, either that or you were too retarded to understand the early digital sensors were steps backwards.Lens is the first thing in the pipeline. It is the thing that controls the image quality.
>>4121758Foveon has three layers. It's not a beam splitter with 3 sensors. Those are reserved for large cinema/broadcast cameras. The end result is pretty bad honestly, worse than film for low light.
>>4121482i already have a leica>>4121494the problem is i dont like evfs. i have an x-e2 but its the same size as my x-s10 and it just feels like shit idk. maybe i should get an x-pro?>>4121449seems like there is no panasonic lumix bodies that are quite compact and/or without a grip
>>4121769I've never owned an X-Pro but I had an opportunity to check out the X-Pro3 on Monday. It was extremely comfy.[EXIF data available.

>>4121512>>4121612>The aluminum alloy weighs to be about 3.44 pounds/1.56kg.>The carbon fiber weighs about 2.81 pounds/1.29 kg. I mean, uhh, is that really supposed to be a big deal? It's like $300 for a 300gr difference. Didn't know that cold was a big deal on aluminum tripods (It's my first one) so thanks for the tape trick
>>4121809Peak design is a meme company that scams the fuck out of people by selling small chinese made trinkets for absurd sums of money. Literally anything more expensive than $50 will be as good. Note, the tripod head is more important than the tripod.
>>4121810Idk, I'm watching this review comparing it to a Manfrotto 055 and they don't seem like a meme man. I mostly got interested on it because a photographer I follow uses it, and I like his pics a ton, I can see the benefit of it being so small. but I probably won't pay for the carbon version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOBYKnNsQ1Q
>24-70 f2.8 is favorite lens>always HUGEi fucking hate optics>>4121816When you actually use them daily instead of poking the legs it's a pretty big meme.
>>4121829have you used it? where did you find it fell short?
>>4121840It's a tripod, a tripod is a tripod, if it does not fall over I'm satisfied. It falls short in being a tripod that costs as much as a lens.
>>4121859so you haven't actually used it and the problem is that is expensive. I think I'll try the aluminum one
>>4121869I have borrowed one, and it was no more impressive than a $100 generic tripod off amazon.
Question: Which digital Leica cameras that have sensor corrosion problem?
>>4121885Anything based off the M9 sensor iirc
>>4121893I see, so from Leica M (Type 240) and up the sensors are safe right?
now lets say hypothetically i dont really love sony but their image quality is decent enoughwould it be a poor choice to buy an a6000 for $200 and a meike 35 1.4 (or other cheap lens off amazon because i have amazon gift cards i haven't used) ?
>>4122161It's not going to be unusable but not too much fun either.There aren't really better options unless you are willing to spend moreGo for ttartisan instead, they have clicked apertures
Just bought "like new" A6000 w/ kit lens for $350Good deal?
>>4122196Getting a good quality lens is more important.For example the Tamron 17-70Or the Sigma 18-50Newfags always fail at getting good lenses and winder why their results are shit.
>>4122169>TTArtisanI a bit out of loop but can someone explain to me what the hell is TTArtisan is all about?
>>4122161me>>4122169thank you, the ttartisan lenses look decent>>4122196not meOkay so, the $200 deal may or may not be a bot actually but regardless of that, would it be a better idea to just get a decent lens for EM10 original? I know it's still gonna be worse in low light but considering i already have the camera and could probably get a semi alright lens im wondering. Although the age of the sensor worries me a bit.t. should've bought the x100t i saw for like $500 a year ago
>>4122210im buying the a6000 w/ kit lens as a pocketable camera. those lenses dont enter the discussion.
>>4122218>pocketable camera.Your results will always be smartphone tier shit.
>>4122218An a6000 is hardly a pocketable camera lol
>>4122220with the kit lens it is.>>4122219care to explain?
>>4122220An x100v doesn’t fit in any normal pocket either and the a6000 is smaller.
>>4122223Have you ever held one? Go to Best Buy or something and check it out first>>4122224When did I mention the X100V?
>>4122227Yes. And I wear vintage 1940's jeans with pretty big pockets. Or, you know, a jacket pocket.
>>4122218If you want pocketable camera just go get point and shoot film camera and get a good film.
>>4122196lmao are you me? i did the same recently and have a 50mm f1.8 on the wayi like how the camera feels in comparison to my old nikon dslr. so much lighter and takes up hardly any space>>4122219depends on the pocket, fits in my jacket currently but my jacket has big ass pockets
>>4122242You're not >>4122223
>>4122261Seeing two (you)s on your post
>>4122212it's yet another chinese company that makes cheap-ish manual prime lenses (and recently, AF too)their most distinctive feature is that they have clicked aperture rings and a more retro designI have their 40f2.8, 35f1.4, 50f1.2 and 32f2.8, like them so far>>4122216>t. should've bought the x100t i saw for like $500 a year agoI think that would have been a bot too
>>4121506>Can anyone tell me, in real-world usage, how pocketable the X100F is?It's bigger than a full frame Sony
>>4122384I, too, carry around my camera without a lens
>>4122390just use a pancake bro fr fr bussin
>>4122384>sony a7c but why would you buy the plastic fantastic snoy when you could get pic relatedalso yes fuji x100f will probably fit in a decent sized jacket pocket for whoever was asking that
>>4122483>also yes fuji x100f will probably fit in a decent sized jacket pocketah yes, the fuji demographic
>>4122493>mfw i actually wear an old military coat
Are you as creatively bankrupt as Ricoh?
>>4122520if they could stop doing this and just focus on making their cameras less prone to random failure and other issues i'd buy one
Is this shit a gimmick or is it actually good
>>4122528I don't see why anybody would buy it unless they're disabled and can't manually focus. there are plenty of AF lenses to choose from if you want AF. an adapter that moves the entire lens to focus is something that is an interesting proof of concept I suppose but as an actual product to buy? why bother? you'll get better results just manually focusing yourself, the way the lens is meant to be used and focused.
>>4122384A7c Mark.II will be mine.
>>4122161hey hey hey its me againuh so actually im considering a nex (insert 16mp model thats cheap) as a pocket cameraanyone know any third party pancake lenses that are good? i know the sony 16 is bad and the 20 is expensive meanwhile the ttartisan 25 looked like its kinda SOFTalso considering the fucking gizmo utulens but a "proper" lens would be nice
>>4121829Now try having a 70-200 f2.8 as a favorite lens.
>>4122520They're scaredReleasing a GRIV means they have to innovate or *shudder* make more sealed bodyI fucking love my GR, but the dust can enter easily like bribeable bouncer from that shady downtown night club
>>4122604My favorite long lens is just a 200mm f2.8 primeSadly uncommon. >>4122520>ricoh/pentax making recolors instead of actual products Nothing new. Dead brand. The X100v is a much better camera anyways.
>>4122565Is that in the pipeline even? I like my A7C but wouldn't mind a higher res sensor
>almost exclusively use a6000 with battery eliminator and USB power banks>1.5 weeks in on trip>plug camera into USB charger to power it to dump pics>plug phone into same charger because it's getting low>kills battery eliminator instantly>cry about it>miss out on a ton of photo op the next 3 days>cope and go buy a brand new battery at huge costAll because I was like nah I don't need to pack a real battery it'll be fineKinda nice I can pop into a random store and find two on the shelf

Nikon 3500 good upgrade from 1st-gen Canon EOS M? Mainly want an upgrade for viewfinder, controls, and comfort. Better IQ is a bonus.
Due to several events I'm away from all my film cameras. It's been 3 years and I'm itching on shooting films again. Almost make me getting a Praktica and a lens but I ended up getting a cheap $10 Ilford Disposable camera.[EXIF data available.

>>4122968you better shoot a fucking masterpiece on that disposable
>>4122974I did some video research and since it's locked to f10 (why not f8 tho?) I had to use it on broad daylight or using the flash for dramatic effect (or 90s grunge feel). The rest is pretty much using my knowledge of proper natural lighting and I'm that worried I got rusty after 3 years.Also Kodak made a dispo as well and even put a iso800 film in it too but the results are shitty lol (and I'm not talking about the grains)
>>4122717Just the usual "rumors", for 2023, so basically nothing so far, alas. I noticed Map Camera dropped the used A7c prices a bit in Japan, they might be onto something.All I want is the same kind of 4-axis screen as the A7rV. Also for the EVF to be at least on a6xxx levels, but honestly I can live with it. 33Mpix would be great as well. Also it shouldn't be hard to implement as it's software, but after tasting it on a rented A7RV, I want that "AI" focus or whatever marketing term they're using. It's just too good.
>>4122757Don't fret too much about it, it's hard to capture its majesty anyway. Seeing it in person is what matters. I'm unironically considering upgrading my smartphone for one with a better camera, even though so far camera quality for smartphones always has been on my bottom list of what matters to me on these devices, as I never use them. I'll upgrade partly because I also had a misadventure, and it ended up saving my ass. I was glad to have that backup camera with me, even if subpar.[EXIF data available.

>>4123219I used my good old and cheap manual Samyang 12mm f2.0. Had to do some Lightroom job though, and had to crank up the iso a bit because it's indeed quite dark in there, and I don't have stabilization on such a lens, nor on my APS-C body. I didn't buy that lens for such endeavors, just for landscapes, but it ended being far more useful than I thought. Probably one of the buys I've been the most satisfied with, considering its price. I kinda wish Samyang would do the same kind of lens for FE, like a 16 or 18mm, f2.0, fully manual to keep it cheap because I honestly don't need AF at such a focal. The have an 18mm AF 2.8, but picture quality is not that great from the reviews. It's not costly though, so there's that.[EXIF data available.

>Let's give it a smaller tripod foot>what could possibly go wrong?Smegma in charge of engineering
>>4123724or maybe SNOY can learn to make more substantial bodies like everyone else. This was obviously designed for the L system
>>4123730>This was obviously designed for the L systemNah. Leica has yet to release a 2 kilogram body.
>>4123731>thinking you need a 2kg body to balance a 2.5kg lensdumb HS dropout snoytard
>>4123732You do need that when the engineer was too retarded to give you long enough tripod foot to adjust the center of gravity. Try again brainlet.
>>4123732They might have to release a 4kg body, actually. Since the front element is skewered so far away.
>>4123730Instead of releasing a new camera body every time you launch a new giga lens, it would be much easier to just engineer a long tripod foot which can adjust to all of your bodies.The former is the sick machations of a 4chan autist. The latter is practical real world engineering.
>>4123732>yfw Sigma's own cameras are even smaller than the snoys
>>4123733>>4123734>>4123737>>4123741don't throw rocks in glass houses snoytards.
>>4123743Accccshuullliiiii that one weigh less and it doesn't shift its front element when you zoom.So it can actually zoom as much as it wants on the gimbalhead without needing readjustments on the fly.You made a retard mistake, just own up to it.
>>4123743I mean, have you seen the size of smegma's own native cameras? You could have had a point of these things weigh 2 kilogram, or 6 kilogram or whatever. But they don't weigh that much and would balance even worse.
>>4123753Have you retards ever owned externally focusing zoom lens? They will tip to one side eventually. Mounting arm is adjustable, though.
>>4123754You're dodging the topic, but whatever.You can put less stress on the gimbalhead and give it a more neutral posiiton if the tripod foot was a proper length. If would also mean you readjust less as you change the zoom.That's the proper way.Longer tripod foot also helps you on the other head types.
friend of mine is looking for a new camera, has only really been shooting APS-C, has to be a good general use machine but needs to be able to shoot things like RC planes/helis in flight, he also specifically wants to buy Canon, with that in mind would you suggest something like the R7, or should he make the switch and pick up one of the usual FF choices?

>>4124107Sounds cool, share some pictures if you get any eight legged dearalso guess what everyone!>>4122599ITS ME! AGAIN!but this time i have an actual question that goes beyond just "is this good"My question is, "How important is a larger sensor compared to a good lens?"You see, I could get the aforementioned Nex camera but I'm seeing a big lack of high quality pancake lenses with the best one probably being the rather expensive 20mm 2.8. Otherwise, for $200 I could get an RX100 III which has a better lens but a smaller sensor. In theory, the APS-C would win but looking at some flickr pictures from the RX100 I kind of like them and don't think they look too bad. Here's some of what I mean :https://flic.kr/p/D1GUvFhttps://flic.kr/p/2hFRooLhttps://flic.kr/p/2kU8Yq1
>>4124141you're already doing the best thing which is to make a decision for yourself based on looking at actual photos produced by each sensor and evaluating the image quality they're capable of.the pros and cons of each sensor are going to mostly be* less light gathered for a smaller sensor, so higher noise (also affected by sensor generation, etc.)* less shallow depth of field for a smaller sensorif you're ok with the difference in these two areas, then you're probably fine with the smaller sensor.

So I’m not sure if this is the right place to post, but I have sort of a reverse gear issue. Namely, I have too much of it that I don’t use.I have a Canon 6D, Elan 7NE, three EF lenses, a moldy Minolta XD11, XG-A, three MD primes, a couple of Pentax point and shoots, and a K1000. My main camera is a Sony a6400 which I like (good photos, great autofocus, bad ergonomics). I’m having trouble bringing myself to downsize. I’m hoarding all this camera gear, and barely use any of it (most of my pictures are family snapshits, which the a6400 excels at).I’m holding onto the camera gear because “I might use it” and “I got a good deal on the Elan, and I need lenses for it and might as well keep the 6D”.I’m not hurting for money, just storage space. My house is filled with hobby stuff and I’m trying to pare everything down.Any advice on parting with gear? Any recovered hoarders on the board?Attached is a picture of a couple of my cows.[EXIF data available.

>>4125980its from the blog of king boomer bullshit. he also has a page saying 35mm film has hundreds of megapickels contrary to the entire professions opinion that even 120 is insufficient compared to digital cameras as of 2018.
>>4125991>whyBecause I need a convenient lens for traveling/hiking. It checks the wide 20mm end, which is perfect, but a 20mm end that would be at 2.8 (and I'm not even counting the rest of the range up to 70mm) would make it too big and heavy. And thus not interesting to me. Simple as.20-70 at F4 is a good middle ground for my own use case. It's a tad too big already, but acceptable considering the 20mm.
>>4125978i use a free one that can use the phone's ambient light sensor as an incident meter but the camera seems to be the better way to go
>>4126035>Using phone's ambient light sensor as incident meterNGMI
>>4125997Digital focusing screens are thicker and designed to be brighter at the cost of focusing accuracy, for this they are not shimmed in to the focusing plane either. A proper focusing screen meant to aid manual focusing is thinner to have the focus plane outside the screen when it is off focus, it is less bright because of this. Because it is more precise you want it to be shimmed in to have spot on focus otherwise your pictures will end up back or front focused all the time.It was part of a camera shop service to be check and adjust the focusing screen.
>>4126296>bigger than the 24-70 f4at least it has the little button i use for the focus magnifieri'm waiting on lenstip to test the sharpness otherwise i'd rather just have the 20mm prime

Ricoh GR III (28mm) or GRIIIx (40mm)? Im getting rid of my Canon APS-C for something more portable. But its hard to decide on focal length.

>>4126515Well as someone who use Ricoh GR I still love my 28 but that because I love to frame my photos in a certain scene rather than focusing on a subject.So my question is, what kind of photos you want to make?
>>4126577Leica Monochrom of course. The sensor is pretty much designed especially for BW.Or better go get a film Leica and go get some Ilford film rolls.OR BETTER, learn to make Infra red photography.
>>4122203[spoiler] retard [/spoiler]
>>4126579But what is the point if I cant fit it in my pocket? Then I might as well bring my full frame.
>>4126586Well I take a bunch of different types of photos. For example last week I was in Chicago, and only had a 50mm prime. I couldnt get the buildings from top to bottom into the pictures. I wished then I had a more wide lens.But on the other hand, a wide angle lens doesnt capture the "magnificence" of skyscrapers, since it makes them look smaller than they do in real life. I don't know what the solution to that is though. A tilt-shift lens?
>>4126610Eh, to capture the magnificence of a building you need other objects around it to show how great the building is. The twin tower will always shown towering over other buildings. Pyramid of Giza tend to be taken with people standing around it or the Sphinx on the front. The Great Wall of China pics will always taken on the mountains part. It's always about framing.
>The Great Wall of China pics will always taken on the mountains partBecause that's only well-maintained and easily accessible part, retard
>>4126629>The twin tower will always shown towering over other buildingsbecause they were literally surrounded by building all around? the only way to not show them towering over everything else is if you found an angle with no other buildings[EXIF data available.

>>4126629But the fact is that objects in the distance look proportionally smaller than they should due to distortion, when using a wide angle lens. And they look even bigger than they should with a telephoto. I'd rather get the telephoto perspective in most cases.

Does Canon actually have any good offerings in the sub $2000 space these days or are they just relegating that entire space to their second class, undersupported crop shit? Should I jump ship to a different brand?
>>4126804I'd sell everything and get a more modern full frame camera used. The XT2 is hot garbage and yet you could sell it for $750+ on ebay, Everything there is probably worth over $2000 alltogether and you could get a nikon Z6 or and a handful of primes for that, or an APSC snoy, lenses, and lighting/video equipment and be set for a career.
>>4126828it amazes me how shitty old fujis sell for twice as much as a crop sensor camera from that generation should. people just see dials with numbers and think "high end" even if it really isn't. even new, fujis are more expensive than their competition, but they don't perform like it and don't have the build quality to back it up.same company that discontinued 3 packs of film due to "insufficient demand" in the middle of a film craze. fuji's life blood is the mass of gullible suckers who attach too much emotional significance to consooming and fail to see the camera as the soulless machine it is, and the heart pumping it along is the internet shill.

>>4126832If you think Fujis are bad then what about Canon?The original EOS M still goes for like $200-300 which is the price of an a5100 or a6000. And dont even get me started on the M50. You say Fuji don’t have the build quality but Canon’s entire APS-C lineup until the R10 and R7 is all just rebel tier plastic shells for mediocre technology.
>>4126858Brand recognition is the bane of fair prices.>>4126857Probably not a DSLR. A used A7RII or A7III could be cheap enough for you (or you could haggle someone down on an A7RIII), especially given the massive range of third party lenses for snoy. It's affordable to the point of causing buyers remorse driven sony hate on /p/.If a DSLR go for a nikon D800 or D810, older nikon lenses (some of them are very sharp) are shitting the bed in price because of all the Z mount shit coming out, plus Z mount getting an adapter that lets it use every lens ever made for sony.

I think I see what's happening here considering how new the 50mm f/1.4 is. Sony probably violated an agreement with Zeiss and Zeiss is breaking off their relationship. Recent Sony replacements of Sony/Zeiss lenses>PZ 16-35 f/4 in place of 16-35 Zeiss>20-70 f/4 in place of 24-70 ZeissExpect to see all Zeiss lenses discontinued once the great replacement is complete
>>4126822Depends what lenses you want. I just bought an open box R6 for $1600. I want a good 50mm, so will either bite the bullet and buy the 1.2L, or will sell everything for a Lumix.
>>4126862>Probably not a DSLRThanks, I wish I could affordably rent and test everything out. But I have heard a lot of good things about the A7RIII. I need to invest in some props and backdrop but once I do that, think I'll more seriously think about getting a new camera.
>>4126869The D800/D810 will give you 90% of the newer MILCs image quality and convenience and is $500-$1000 cheaper than mirrorless, and thousands cheaper in the lens department.>>4126866So many of the sony/zeiss lenses have been stinkers that got outperformed by samyangs that I think sony might have told zeiss to fuck off
>>4126875>The D800/D810 will give you 90% of the newer MILCs image quality and convenienceHmm, I'll peep.I'm pretty knowledgable of technical stuff just haven't stayed up on new developments. But outside of the improved noise floor and no cropped sensor I'm looking for, I need some features like 2x zoom or better intervals than 5x and 10x that will make it easier setting focus and shooting untethered. Canon makes stuff like that really challenging.

Is EOS M10 in great condition for 200$ a good deal? If not, what are good alternative MILCs for normie general-purpose photography?
>>4126858>Canon’s entire APS-C lineup until the R10 and R7 is all just rebel tier plastic shells for mediocre technology.retard. the 7D was peak APS-C for many years. the 70D to 90D with DP-PDAF also had the best AF of any APS-C camera when in live view mode
>>4126925I still have a 7D, what would be the best upgrade path from that?
>>4126931DSLRs are dead. R7 if sticking with APS-C, or R6 if going up to FF. Any lenses you currently have will work even better on one of those bodies with the Canon adapter due to IBIS and better AF.
>>4126837It's funny to see Panasonic Lumix isn't even in that list.Why you guys are so allergic to Panasonic? Their sensors are great.
>>4126937Should I just bite the bullet and upgrade to FF even if I'll have to get rid of the couple of APS-C lenses I have? (18-135mm zoom and 10-22mm wide angle)The things I've read make it sound like Canon APS-C is a bit of a dead end. The 7D's poor low light performance was an issue for me quite often, so going for another APS-C camera feels like it might be a mistake even if the R6 is considerably more expensive.
>>4126945if you can afford it, go FF. APS-C will always be the red-headed child of any system that caters to both FF and APS-C.
>>4126938>panasoynic>greatgo to the /vid/ thread.
>>4126945The R7 is gimped in several important ways to push consumers towards the more expensive FF options, it's not an adequate successor to the 7D at all. Canon learned their lesson with providing too much value in an affordable package.

i shoot film with a rangefinder. i have a fuji xe2 that i rarely use because i kinda dont like digital (dont really like evfs either) and i dont have a good lens for it (in the focal lengths that i like). do i buy an xpro 1 hoping i will like digital or is it my GAS talking
>>4127036Nobody else is saying anything so I’ll give my thoughts. If the main reason you don’t enjoy digital is because of EVFs then maybe it’ll work and you should try it. If you don’t like digital because of the way the pictures look, or some other uncontrollable reason you should probably stick with film, assuming you can afford it. Also make sure there actually is a lens you like for it that you can afford or something you could learn to like.
>>4127036Most EVFs are genuinely awful until you get into newer cameras. Then they're merely ok, and almost good closer to the $4000 mark. If your camera has a way to avoid stop-down metering you absolutely need that otherwise the image gets noisier as you adjust the aperture down.
>>4127036Try the X-t2 or 3. The EVF is much bigger and better. An Xpro will be similar but the AF is pretty shit and you kinda just have to trust the camera to focus correctly. An Xpro2 has better AF and a little window in the bottom-right so you can confirm focus.

What is the most cheap used MILC that isn't complete shit by today's standarts? I want to try and see if I even need it.
>>4127534You can get a GX85 and two decent kit lenses bundled for like 500 or so new, even cheaper used. I used them (and a couple additional primes) throughout the last several years, including on a trip to Japan, and enjoyed what I was getting out of it. It's a somewhat dated sensor on the smallest serious format, sure, but with static subjects the IBIS still let me do decent work even in low light. It does everything one need for entry level (or learning) photography and casual video too. The main issues most people would run into is the form factor: it's a small camera with a small grip, but it's a light set up and I have small hands so it was fine for me. The EVF also wasn't exactly class leading even upon release, but it's a necessary compromise for the form factor and I still found it usable even as a glasses wearer.
>>4127541No no no, you don't seem to get me. I mean like complete hobo price level. Under "isn't complete shit" I've meant photos not stretched on 4k screen, can shoot 1080p videoin any framerate if needed and preferably lenses not becoming useless after i get rid of it. So far I'm thinking of something like snoy NEX F3/3N/5N, where I am it's possible to get them for ~120$ in ok condition with kit lens and a pancake/some soviet lens.
>>4127544Pretty much any MILC will do then, lol. I'd probably consider something on a still-living mount if you'd like room to grow in whatever system (so not NEX or EF-M, for example), and I'm sure the oldest options from Panasonic, Olympus, Fuji, or Sony are all in that bottom barrel price range and work fine within your standards.
>>4127577I know about EF-M being dead but isn't Sony E still ok? I'm planning to stay in APS-C so no need for full frame capability. Considering that I need it just for normie photography with higher that digital-soap-dish and chinkphone quality, I don't think that I'll ever need something higher than a6xxx and, well, it uses the E-mount.
>>4127588I mistakenly confused NEX with the Samsung NX line (which was actually apparently pretty good while it persisted, I hear). Carry on then, if you go the Snoy route.
>>4127534Have you checked the Samsung NX line? They were decent and the 30mm F2 was decent. Or NX mini if you're looking for something very compact.
>>4127589Well then, thanks for approving my delusions :)>>4127590I've checked them, where I am they're usually cheaper than NEXs of same age, but I previously had EXTREMELY negative experience with Samsung electronics + NX-mount is ded, so I didn't really consider them.
>>4127596Who cares about dead mounts when you're looking for cheap?
>>4127610I'm able to pay *a bit* more if that means that I can later use lenses on something better.
E-mount is about to get another 50mm F1,4 GM from Sony. And another 50mm F1,4 Art from Sigma.
>>4127626Finally a 50mm lens for a mount that is desperately needs one
>>4122520As someone who uses the GRII on at least a weekly basis, this is very unnerving to see. Dammit, I just want a GRII with good build quality. Is that too much to ask?
>>4127626Oh boy more fast 50mm lenses for sony exactly what everyone wanted, a dead boomer focal length for a dead boomer bokehwhore style
>>4122526>>4122684>>4122685>>4127657what a bunch of totally organic replies, not at all snoyi bot dising competition
>>4124357I own one. It’s awesome.
>>4125324I’m in a similar position. I also own an older 6D along with multiple other bodies. Here’s the question you gotta ask yourself: If you didn’t own these bodies and lenses right now, would you buy them? If you wouldn’t, then you shouldn’t keep them either. Anytime you keep something instead of selling it, you are essentially buying.I’m selling all of my stuff. Just keeping my new Canon R6. Then I’m getting a Ricoh Gr3x for pocketability.
>>4127673Bruh, I own a Ricoh GRI love this camera but man this thing need better sealing. Dust keep getting in.
>>412766250mm is the best general purpose focal length though. Perfect when you wanna photograph 1-3 people and still show some context. 35mm is pretty good too but has too much facial distortion.
guise, now that DSLRs are tanking in price in the used market I can finally build some decent setup.what do you suggest I buy, Canon gear or Nikon gear?
>>4127970Whatever you like most. I'd take Canon because I'm familiar with it and EF mount has good compatibility across years. But Nikon is perfectly good too if you don't stick ancient lens in a body that can't handle it.
>>4127970Well I don't know if your place do this but in mine there's a lot of camera rental in daily or weekly rate so you can rent a camera to know how it feel. For me, since I already use Nikon SLR for decades I guess Nikon DSLR for me.
>>4127976>>4127974I mean, I wanted some post-mortem advice for the two brands. Since no new equipment will ever be made I wanted to see which ecosystem was better to invest my money in
My Canon 7D Mk 1 is starting to die. What’s a good replacement? I’ve heard 5D and Sony A7R a lot. Any others worth considering? Who has the best viewfinder features?
>>4127979See what lenses you want and select by that.Nicanon both have plenty on good lenses. Andgood lens stays, bodies come and go.You can adapt EF to RF when EF bodies die or become hopelessly obsolete. And I understand F to Z too as long its not an ancient lens.

>>4121396is a nikon d3 a good first FF camera? or should i consider somthing else from nikon t. pentaxfag moving to nikon cause the secondhand stuff is cheaper
>>4128140>goes through the hassle of being a pentaxcuck>has never even used FFthe absolute state
>>4128151im not too deep in yet Im getting out while i still can
>>4128151Pentax FF is an awful money pit experience. Pentax APSC is fine for what it is - cheap DSLRs with mirrorless creature comforts.
>>4128156>snoycuck being a bitter cuck
>>4128157I shoot fuji. Pentax fucked up with full frame instead of investing more into APS-C and bringing back medium format. No one in their target market cares about full frame - it's still a crop sensor. Most pentax users still shoot APS-C.Instead the K-1 got all the nice features and the K3-III got cucked hard because pentax is ran by retards. Maybe if the K-1 had a larger sensor it would be better justified. Whatever you pentaxcucks want I guess, fuji doesn't really need a competitor to be good so if pentax goes out of business enjoy your sudden resale value plunge.
>>4128140lol @ everyone on /p/ ditching pentax now
>>4128171>Fuji X-T5 and X-H2 releases depressed the prices of all previous fuji bodies enough for people to afford them (you can buy an X-T4 for $1000 now)>Sony A7C and A7RV releases depressed the prices of the II and III bodies significantly>Nikon Z mount's growing lens selection depressed nikon DSLR gear prices significantlydesu no reason not to switch to fuji or a nikon DSLR
>>4128156the WHOLE FUCKING POINT of Pentax is to get that "old school" experience.if you cannot even use your vintage lenses without some dumb crop then what's the fuckikg point
>>4128171>>4128156>>4128151my original question still hasnt been answered but that's par for the course i guess i wanted to switch to nikon cause going FF is cheaper alongside the lenses and i can branch into film easier
>>4128186The point of Pentax is to be good and semi-luxurious. An artsy camera. Is sensor shift shit and a tilty screen old school? Are their lenses without aperture rings old school?>>4128189Obviously mate just buy the d810 you were going to buy anyways
>>4128198I'd like to but it's out of my price range
Hello /p/Recently moved to an other country for studies.I have zero experience with photography and last time I used one was 2010. Any suggestions for a starter camera with a reasonable pricing ?
I want to buy a camera to fuck around with. Something analog I guess so I can projec the film. Any tips?
>>4128235olympus om-d em1 (the old cheap one)>>4128236zenza bronica and shoot slide film so your film is already a finished picture
>>4128237I'd like to the develop the film myself
>>4128183At least Nikon old mount have a shit ton of lenses you can get. Some people just want new new new
>>4128235You don't mention what you want in a camera and what kind of occasion you want to use it.
>>4128183>I support my growing lens selection through this website, as crazy as it might seem.
Explain to me like I'm an Instaxshitter. What's the difference between Sigma AF 30mm f/2.8 DN Art and Sigma AF 30mm f/2.8 EX DN? Is the EX better because it's le EX?
>>4128448literally the first fucking article on google>The Sigma 30mm ƒ/2.8 DN "Art" is an updated version of their well-regarded 30mm ƒ/2.8 prime lens for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. This new version gets the Global Vision treatment with an "Art" Series designation and new metal exterior with improved build quality. Optically, though, this new version is practically identical to its predecessor with the same lens element configuration, ƒ/2.8 aperture, minimum focusing distance and maximum magnification.kys
>>4128448They added the word art in the product name so its better
>>4128453>updated version>practically identicalamazing
Almost thereNow to figure out a power supply solution
>>4128237Checked that one and could be in my price range>>4128281No idea about specs, I would like to use it mainly on animals and objects (from vase size to car size)
>>4128448the first version, EX has rubber focus ring and the second version has slippery metal. they both produce sound when you shake the lenses, but it's normal. also, both have micro jitter when using AF-C video mode if used for static vlogging, don't know if there was a firmware upgrade to fix it. at least those were the comments based on reviews years ago.
>>4128509If you can’t afford EM1 than there’s also the EM5 which is like the second tier one and the EM10 which is the third tier oneIf you’re shooting animals that freak out and run away these cameras are especially good because they have cheaper lenses for taking pictures of far away stuff
>>4128507nobody cares colin
>>4128628Did Colin pay rent this month at least?
>>4128629he's too poor to afford that
The gorilla pod is made like shit and will break easy, good concept though. Didn't even have half the rated weight on it ever
>>4121494I have this combo and it's fantastic. Couldn't ask for something more. Other than upgrading to the newest version with weather sealing (doesn't matter since x-e series doesn't have it anyway) and aperture ring (only really necessary with the newer x-e4 with one less dial)
