>>4150784I dunno, I got my first apple product in the M1 Pro Mackbook pro, and it has a dedicated charging port, a nice and fast SD reader, HDMI (though not 2.1) output, 3.5 jack and 3 usb-c ports.You do NOT need more.
>>4150801Apple omitted those features until people started copying them and then brought them back, along with a compatibility breaking chip change for nerdsIts a moneylenders trick
>>4150813It was Intel's fault, they have pushed the ultrabook concept to compete with macbook air, but instead it replaced the full size laptop.

waiting on a passthrough optical filter to put over the CMOS. in my very humble opinion, all digital cameras should come without any wavelength filtering inside the camera body, and lenses should simply come with removable infrared lowpass filters instead

current cameras are a Bronica ETRSi, Ricoh GR, and a D7100 (35 1.8G, 50 1.8D)i find Bronica/D7100 too big, and the ricoh is fun but doesn't have the control that i want.would like to get something that is easy to carry around, but capable. Bessa R, XT-5? any other ideas?
>>4150942what about uwas and fisheyes
>>4150780Give me 3x ush-ii card reader for type c usb.
got myself a decent little film setup and now I'm thinking about copping a digital camera. I see a lot of dick-suck around the x100v and I do like how it looks, but what do I get out of it compared to my gf's old nikon d3400 aside from film presets and more megapixels?
>>4151192it's more fun, that's all
>>4151192You can use Nikon's Picture Control Utility software to make your own presets that you can load onto camera. You actually have more options / control than Fuji with that. If you're considering changing cameras based off the jpg output, consider just learning how to edit, and then you can just get whatever look you want with any camera.The x100v's are a nice compact size, and give you an OVF to look through. They're a bad fit for most people though.If you don't care about the slightly smaller size, you can get essentially the same look out of most other Fuji's like X-T30, X-T3/4, X-S10, X-E4, as they have similar sensors and processors. Can find these cheaper and lets you use different lenses.If you care about the OVF, can also look at the X-Pro's which give you lens interchangeability.
>>4151120well, i also wish that rear lens filters were a thing. if people could easily attach a fixed linear polarizer to the back of the lens, and a rotating linear polarizer to the front, that'd be very cool. same principle with fisheye lenses, a rear-mounted IR cutoff that comes with the lens. all you'd need is a relatively cheap 650nm cutoff filter somewhere in the optical path, ideally not buried in the camera body electronics
Deuter made a camera back, is it any good? Jaypack Pro 36
>>4151528all their other backpacks are focused on hiking only and hiking backpacks are top tier in terms of comfort. Has anyone ever tried this one?
>>4150784>laptopI genuinely don't think laptops have had SD card readers since 2012. Why does it matter, anyway? Desktops don't have an integrated SD card reader either
>>4151547>desktops don't have an integrated SD card reader eitherU wot
i use that anker sd card reader, has a slot for sd an [spoiler]micro sd[/spoiler], as well as usb and usb-c connections on the respective ends.
>>4151528yeah, the camera compartment zips on the outside makes this an automatic failure. Bare minimum a good camera backpack will zip on the same side as the straps.
>>4151528I can't imagine having enough shit/big enough to actually fill that is the problemI have a full frame body, 3 lenses, a flash, 3 batteries, chargers, and cables and might only use 1/3 of that
>>4151013its getting so cheap to get into full frame, especially with older used mirrorless bodies and pretty ok primes like the sony mini-Gs and nikon kit lenses, that i'm not surprised. meanwhile the value proposition of crop is getting worse as retarded companies try and sell it as more premium than it really is.like fuji should have stuck with a 26mp sensor, worked on significantly improving readout and noise like with the xh2s, and pushed cheaper cameras with that technology. no one benefits from 40mp on aps-c. if they were going to go full pixel peeper they should have released a budget 50mp medium format camera
>>4151576The premo crop lens prices from fuji/olympus/panasonic hurt the most. The images are not as impressively, clinically sharp as $1000 spent on brand name FF glass would get you. The end result looks kind of like a $200 budget lens for FF. But it still costs $1000. Everyone I know with a fuji uses the cheap glass.
>>4151569you could store your tripod inside the bag (you know so its not obvious you lug around expensive camera gear. So you wont paint a target.Does not seem to be carry on compatible for flights though.But if its as comfortable as their hiking backpacks it could be worthwhile. Most of the time you carry your backpack, so it should be as comfortable as possible.

I probably won't ever be upgrading from the A6500 at this rate.I like the the way the magnesium body feels, and the weight it's at.And apparently those incompetent retards at Sony don't want me to upgrade either.

I'm looking at the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8MPB has one that is in "Excellent" Condition for £439, and one that is "Like New" for £479. The "Like New" comes with a lens hood. An after market JJC branded lens hood is anywhere from £10 to £15 on eBay. Is the OEM lens hood worth the extra £40, keeping in mind the condition of the lens is apparently better?There's also one for £384 that comes with a lens hood, but the focus and zoom grips aren't looking great.

is there any medium format film camera that'll work with my minolta MD lenses? I assume full frame lenses won't work on medium format cameras but I still gotta ask
Why am I even bothering with gear that is way past the diminishing returns pricepoint when PP and AI-denoise do the heavy lifting for 0 bucks anyway. And nobody looks at my photos anyway, or maybe my dad on his crappy laptop screen.
>>4151994Because it's fun to take out new gear and photography is not about photos but about making them
>>4151994You are clearly having the wrong mindset for this hobby. The goal is not to take photos, it's to collect the gear.
>>4151529>>4151528My Lowepro Flipside 400AW has those side flaps, they are nice and give a good support for hiking but in warm weather they become a hassle since not detachable.They also serve a purpose of holding your backpack when you rotate it forward to access your gear without taking it off, but the Flipside has the compartment opening in the back. The Deuter has it in front so it is a stupid design and I wouldn't look at it twice.
i bought this bad boy yesterday for 60 bucks.Its actually really good and built better than most of the new olympus cameras.
I sold my Canon 6D setup to get a Fujifilm XT3 setup with a kit lens of 18-55 because I couldn't handle the unsusable auto focus anymore of my canon. Seems the Fuji doesn't meet my standards: cant see raw files in preview on my mac, small toyish looking, lenses kinda expensive, ISO performance, ..I live in Japan now and take good pics but probably will switch back to another camera once I get back home in a few months. Realistically, which camera+lens can I go for when I'm on a budget? I'm thinking around 1600 euro maybe a bit more, preferably less. Canon R? Nikon Z6? Sony? Thoughts? Or should I just cope and keep the Fuji as I may be overreacting?
>>4152628Fuji does suck and you’ll inspire a lot ot YOUDONTMEEDMOREGEARFAG buyers remorse cope complaining about it. Probably get a sony a7c.
>>4152628fuji is very well known for crappy af and overpriced lenses. it’s why so many fujifags just use cheap manual glass.
Thinking of buying a Sony A7ii. I see they cost only $899 new. Im shooting Canon already but want to try Sony out and see if I like it (and then may consider switching altogether). Is it worth trying with a Sony A7II or will I be disappointed? I would probably get the new 20-70mm f4G with it for an additional $1100. Probably also a 50mm f1.8, and maybe the 40mm f2.5.I would mainly buy it to try some Sony lenses out and see if Sony is for me.Anything I should be worried about regarding A7ii? Whats bad about the camera?
>>4152660bad af bad battery life bad ui bad durability. even sony fans consider it junk along with the original a7 and the non-R a7iii. sony is being sued over this + the a7iii's reliability right now.
>>4152660Do not buy: A7, A7R, A7RII, A7II, A7III, A7S, A7SII, any A6XXX or A5XXXGood to go but do not get wet: A7RIII, A7SIIIGood to go 100%: A7IV, A7RIV, A7RV, A7C, A9, A1
>>4152661>>4152669OK thanks guys. I found a used one for $550 but guess that's just a pure waste of money then. Perhaps I should get a Nikon Z5 or Z6 instead, they can be had for about $900 used. I just want a cheap 2nd body from either Sony or Nikon. I've only ever shot with Canon, so would be fun to try something new.BTW, how do you know that A7iv, A7Rv etc are 100% reliable? They're quite new after all.
>>4152628Canon R8 for top tier autofocus. Used Z5 if you wanna save some money. They released a new firmware that supposedly greatly improved the autofocus for it. Its still a much slower and older camera than the R8 though. In the end it will depend on what lenses you intend to get. Both systems have their strengths and weaknesses here.
>>4152688Sony's reliability issues up until this point were early failures and just not having weather sealing. People typically put these cameras through extremely hard use so they're fine.
>>4152660A7II is honestly quite old by now, with the old menus and shit, but then again I was never bothered with them, I set up my shit once, make my button shortcuts/reassignments, and maybe go back in the menu twice a year. But for some people it's like hell or something. AF is also quite slow compared to today's standards, but it was quite good back in the day so who knows. I'd still go with a used A7III instead, but if you want knew and cheap, then A7II will obviously be a lot cheaper. If anything, I like how A7I and A7II body were still small, that's a big plus as far as I'm concerned.
>>4152660>>4152736>old menus and shitYeah, but coming from Canon, imagine what happens when anon tries to adjust ISO.
I just inherited a Canon EOS1200D from an elderly relative who can't use it any more. It's my first "proper" camera (only had fuji point n' shoots before smartphones happened) so I'm just getting started on learning to photo properly.I'm particularly interested in night shooting & astrophotgraphy, planning on mounting it on my telescope's tracking robot tripod to try some super long exposure stuff next new moon (i have a remote trigger too).Is the EOS1200D a piece of shit? How fucked am I?
>>4152784Canons are generally worse at night photos yes
>>4152701That will be 8000 dollars for that lens. Thank you very much, sucker.
>>4152784Camera will probably be fine if you stack.https://youtube.com/watch?v=bDqrW8cLEx8 >planning on mounting it on my telescope's tracking robot tripod to try some super long exposure stuffI'm more worried about this. What kind of tracker is it? If it's just one intended for visual I'm not sure it's accurate enough for super long exposures. You usually use extremely sturdy ones for that, and with guiding scopes, that is another camera that is used to correct for errors in the tracking.It also depends on what you mean by "super long". Anyways it's probably better to take shorter ones and stack. The tracker does make this a lot easier though.
>>4153010It's a tracking mount, the telescope is a celestron 114LCM... Very much an entry level 'babby's first telescope' model. I wasn't hoping to capture deep field messier objects or anything, I've read enough to know that sort of proper astrophotography requires stacking, using the scope as a lens etc.. That stuff's for further down the line. I was really just wanting to try & get some nice starry sky pics. By "super long" exposures I meant more than the 30 seconds the camera will do by itself, like maybe a full minute or more. Idea being to avoid star trails by using the tracking mount, using the remote trigger with a long exposure so I can keep low ISO settings to reduce noise. I'm not against stacking by any means, the only reason I'd like to see what's possible without it is I live in a super rural, extremely dark place so light pollution isn't a concern, also I think a starry sky with lots of meteor trails zipping across it would look cool & I figured a long exposure would be the best way to "catch" meteors. It's so dark here I see meteors every night, I don't have to wait for the named showers to happen.BUT! I am a self confessed idiot and a camera noob so all these theories might be very wrong.
>>4152669>>4152669>>4152669snoy admits most of the range is pure shit lol
>>4153028He is wrong about A6500 and A6600. They are the best feeling APS-C cameras.
>>4153028Canon and Nikon didn't even compete with sony until a year after the A7RIII came out. Those bodies were cheap, but they justified building up the best lens ecosystem you can get in to today.The only other people with mature mirrorless systems at the time were fuji (the entire range is pure shit, lenses included) and whoever was selling compact point and shits.
is there not a /p/ buyers guide?
>>4153050>The only other people with mature mirrorless systems at the time were fuji This mf just going to pretend micro fourturds don’t exist or what? Quality lacking or not, they had bodies and lenses in greater variety than snoy you chud
>>4153069I said compact point and shoots sis
All of my complaints about my camera being too big occur while looking at it, not actually using it.
>>4151582This is what's prompted me to start leaving M43 and move to FF. Olympus is clearly betting the farm on wildlife with the OM-1, and the OM-5 is mega overpriced for what's essentially an M43 XT30 II. I just wanted a cheaper version of the Leica M experience, small lenses and light bodies.I think the Christmas sale where Nikon put the Z5 out there at what, like $1000 new, really hurt non FF sales. The lens demand is showing up now as people hunt for a fast prime or telephoto to round out the kit zoom.Panasonic has clearly landed on a winner with the S5II (and I presume updates to the S1 line soon) and their interview recently really sounded a lot like a eulogy for the m43 system.
>>4153083>the OM-5 is mega overpriced for what's essentially an M43 XT30 IIWeather sealed. IBIS. Superior AF. Superior EVF. Superior ergonomics. I get what you're saying but you are definitely trading off some features to get that sensor. It isn't exactly apples to apples.
>>4153089all that but full frame has the same stuff going on for the same price and at the same size (actually lighter)... but it's also technically better. fuck, so does APS-C. maybe if you suffer from autistic nikon/sony/canon hate, micro four thirds is on the table?

Looking for a wide lens for some hiking in mountains and on fields. My widest now is the 35mm 1.4. Do you recommend getting the Tamron 20mm 2.8 for Sony? Or should I save some money and just go for the Sony 20mm 1.8?
>>4153189The Sony cost 4 times as much. It's only useful for night time.I would go for a wide zoom instead.
>>4153014I'm not very experienced either. But for stars scapes it will probably be no problem. I thought you wanted nebulas and such.30 secs you can pretty much do without tracking, depending on lens and crop of course. So it will probably work even better with tracking. Good luck, mate. Post some pics in the Astro thread afterwards. Wish I had such dark skys, I have to travel a bit which makes it quit a hassle. Planning to try som stacking like in the video sometime though.
>>4153189If you want cheap, light, and small I'd recommend the Samyang 18mm f2.8Otherwise the Sony 20mm G is amazing, I have it, easily GM level optical quality
>>4153189The tamron has terrible rendering. Just save up. That Sony lens is nearly optically flawless wide open. Photography isn’t a race so why rush to buy junk? Have you even mastered the 35mm yet?>>415322130 without tracking? I start getting star trails at 15.
>>4153157That lens is extremely overpriced for what it is at MSRP but seems like you got it for ~750 then which is pretty alrightIf you have the cash for more RF lenses then you can't really get a better new body in that price bracket now, at least not until nikon z6iii or snoy a7v both of which are at least a year away.
>>4153221>Post some pics in the Astro thread afterwards.Will do. Fug knows when I'll actually get to try it, the skies are very dark here, but they're also perpetually cloudy.
>>4153189Yeah, why the hurry? There's literally nothing you can't do with the sony 35mm f1.4 GM except claim to own a small and light lens. Perspective distortion is very low, panoramas won't be a problem, and it's fine for astro. But if it's the samyang it's a really garbage lens even by samyang standards and the sony/zeiss 35mm f1.4 is really bad for its price (might as well use the samyang) so I could understand wanting to upgrade.The tamron is OK for astro but isn't nearly as sharp as the sony. The edges are noticeably blurry even stopped down and the center is as sharp as the edges are on the sony 20mm f1.8.
nta but speaking of FE and wide, alongside fast for milky way, any other options than the already mentioned ones? I'd like something a bit wider than 20mm (like 16 or 18mm), ideally f1.8/2.0/2.8 top. Don't care about AF, full manual is good, and I'd say even better as far as I'm concerned, I leave such lenses to infinity anyway.The Samyang 18mm is like the ass of a bottle, the Sony GM going wider is far too pricey, I've seen a Tokina f2.0 though it's 20mm same as the Sony 20mm (f1.8) but it's cheaper and optically okay but the Sony seems like a better deal for a few more bills. Voigtländer 15mm is f4.5, so useless for me.Why did Samyang have to fuck up their 18mm for fucks sake, it's the lens I needed.
>>4153341Samyang 14mm f2.8. Doesn’t Laowa have a 15mm as well? Otherwise try a Sigma.
>>4153344Like the 20mm Contemporary f2

>>4153397Not canon battery expert, never seen this particular back but most often if there are three terminals, they are battery +/- plus a thermistor with its other side being grounded, so camera and/or charger can be aware of battery overheating when it's charging or being drained.

More and more comparisons for the galaxy s23 ultra are coming outIt looks like all of micro four thirds and APS-C has been made redundant aside from having more bokeh, and viewing full frame images vs. the phone at IG jpeg/youtube video quality and <2mp is a waste of time, aside from the big sensor DOF they look the same. Real cameras only diverge in serious editing where the additional DR and bit depth shows, and printing. For social media and /p/ gear is absolutely Dead.Dead. With a capital D.A "real camera" now only exists for printable photos and absolute quality. The dedicated digital camera is now today's medium format box. I expect APS-C and MFT to die outside of small amateur video cameras before the decade is over. Full frame will now become "crop", and medium format will begin to dominate to push even further ahead of phones in quality as small sensors are maxed out in what they can do except for amateur video.I hope ya'll are putting your gear up on ebay sooner rather than later because the prices on slightly dated cameras, like anything not as good as an A7RV, are going to plummet like digital point and shoots or old film cameras before the hipster shit.

I've been thinking of upgrading to a Sony A7 IV though.I just do it as a hobby and occasionaly book studios for TFP models for things like lingerie shoots or fashion/portraits.I can get a used one for $2600, an open box for $2800.Pros and Cons of upgrading?Do I really need it?Think the bigger battery and faster menus etc with touch screen and rotating flip screen is cool.Thanks
>>4153667the cheaper A7RIII has most of the upgrades you want out of the A7IV but can be bought for $1100-1300 today off ebay or less than $1000 if you know how to haggle. Also, the batttery lasts longer than the A7IV.It doesn't last as long in the rain but better than the A7RII, and getting rained on is for incels.
>>4153406What's wrong with your 70D?
>>4153686its a dslr. do you even have to ask?
>>4153688>>4153686not because it's a DSLR, but it's poor autofocus accuracyEven when changing the autofocus microadjust, it seems hit or miss.It's not the lenses as they work on other people's bodys, and I get the same issue with other people's lenses on my body
>>4153706That’s how all DSLRs are. Action shooting is technically difficult and it gets in the way of making it into art instead of mere spray and pray. Hence really artistic sports and wildlife shots were holy grails and high budget jpegs. These days with mirrorless cameras you can stage a shot with releasing a previously trapped bird and get it in one take, instead of having to rent trained animals and a zoo because a shitty DSLR needs 10 takes and some luck or “marksmanship”.
>>4153711lmfao fuck off retard.
>>4153711it's not just action shots, even on still subjects it still misses the focus about 30% of the timei suppose the answer is to manual focus still subjects
Does anyone use these? I’m tempered to purchase one, but I’m worried about the repeated jostling causes lens damage[EXIF data available.

>>4153720Just use a Peak Design Capture, better designed. Never had any problems with my lenses, even after days of mountain hiking.
>>4153712Ok nophoto. Go birding. DSLR boomers are there with their expensive ass 200-600 lenses machine gunning to get it right in camera because the AF sucks and they can’t crop as much. I go out with my A7RV and a 70-209 and blow them all away on single shot mode. On shutter press one picture. I wait for the pose i want. I throw bait at some birds and sticks at others to get them flying. I don’t pray i take the shot, i make the shot. Singular shot. 100% hit rate. APSC mode magnifies the image in the EVF (OVF cucks can not even imagine) and I frame for a second crop if i need even more reach. 62mp means I don’t have to really care. Who needs a giant lens with 60mp? People who want to print a duck to fill a wall? Lol.
>>4153493lmao this dude is just posting obvious bait in multiple threads about yet again another mushy and overbaked chinkslop phone camera gimmickdespite starting to creep in that direction (1/1.3 is still appreciably smaller), I'm willing to bet people still get nicer results from even just the decent 1" sensor cameras remaining out there, let alone m43/aps-c
>>4153724based. i have this workflow as well, but i’m so accomplished that i can only post terrible throwaways on 4chan without doxing myself. not many other sports and nature photographers can sling a gfx100s. they just let their dslr make a constant clacking noise while the af struggles and hope it turns out. i have patience and vision so i use manual focus and let the MP be the MM. mirrorless is king for real artists.
>>4153706Sounds there is some fluff on either the mirror (AF bounce mirror is behind the main mirror) or on the AF sensor lens/window. Happened to me once, drove me mad but instead I sat down thinking what could cause it and how to fix it. Get a blower and a soft brush and clean out your camera.
>>4153711>These days with mirrorless cameras you can stage a shot with releasing a previously trapped bird and get it in one take, instead of having to rent trained animals and a zoo because a shitty DSLR needs 10 takes and some luck or “marksmanship”.Lel you never shot wildlife AND you never had a camera in your hand, with mirror or without.

>>4153830>why would anyone make mirrorless cameras now when so much money and time has been invested in DSLRs
>>4153831different scenario. if it wasnt for sony, mirrorless wouldnt have happened. what needs to happen for medium format to become standard is for a major company with lots of money start releasing cameras with this kind of sensor and then being so much better than the competition (incl size/weight, autofocus speed, lens quality etc) that the professional market switches over.

how come nikon can't fit an ibis system in the zfc/z50? the z-mount is fuckhueg
>>4155324Cost and segmentation.
>>4155319Dunno if you have a sensor size preference, but in m43 you have countless options fitting this budget (even new, let alone used) that will be feature rich in various form factors--the GX85 I was using before Fuji is still decent enough for its size, and super cheap, while even the latest "flagship" stills model from Panasonic (the G9) is also within budget now. Olympus stuff tends to retain a bit more value on the used market, but they have a lot of options too, I'm just not as familiar. For APS-C, the Fuji X-S10 is just under 1k new and is probably the best value in APS-C at that price, but if you wait a couple months, lightly used models will be several hundreds of dollars cheaper than currently since the X-S20 is very likely being announced soon and non-LARP Fuji models lose their value real fast (the X-H1 is also incredibly well priced currently used if you want something larger). For FF, most would probably still suggest old DSLR models, but the Canon RP (no IBIS though, classic Canon cripple), Nikon Z5, and ancient Sony models (like the a7ii or a7rii) can be had used below 1k. The Panasonic S5 is rapidly approaching being within budget too and is probably better than all of those unless you really need Sony-tier AF.All of them except Canon have a pretty good lens selection, though M43, Sony, and Fuji are probably the best, in descending order. Canon is explicitly anti-consumer and forbids AF third party lenses, and has focused on filling out expensive large RF L-glass equivalents first in their FF mirrorless system.

>>4150780Is there a lens filter that will roll off light starting around 3000k to create a more blueish white balance in a digital camera?From what I have read there isn't because the camera's white balance will adjust the picture as if the filter wasn't there.Then I saw this filter picrel which does seem to work in changing the light balance. It seems to work better in adding warm light effect than cutting it. It can cool light somewhat though.https://www.stcoptics.com/products/icelava-warm-to-cold-fader-filterSo what is the deal? Are there filters that can force the white balance in a digital camera to be cooler or not? Obviously this icelava filter has that effect.

>>4151994That's not a pipe
>>4155838There's a resurgence in MF lenses because a mirrorless camera fresh out of the box can do things like focus magnification, digital split prisms, and digital rangefinder patches - enabling "snap" shooting where the shutter is pressed as soon as stuff lines up - that digital reflex cameras could not. With DSLRs, the built in focusing screen/OVF arrangement is lower precision than its manual focus film SLR predecessors to maximize brightness with f4-5.6 kit lenses and the like, and doesn't perfectly confirm focus, so before you get serious with MF on a DSLR you have to have a new focusing screen fitted and calibrated perfectly, or god forbid try and hack with with a loupe eyepiece with your ground glass+fresnel thickness stock focusing screen, or just accept that focusing will be a little imprecise and require a bit of manual focus hunting.The next big thing in mirrorless cameras is moving the viewfinder away from the center in all of them, a shitty nose-smashing design choice that was created by a technological limitation, and putting it on the side. Mirrorless cameras can even have swappable EVFs enabling stuff like greater eye relief and with better live view/E-shutter/EFCS performance than any DSLR be used with any external screen in place of one.
>>4155879SLRs were a mistake>having to use giant fast lenses just to be able to see shit>stop down to see the real DOF>can't see shit at alli remember with film i would shine a flashlight around for focusing sometimes. it was stupid but of course the cinefag+canon split personality schiz would call that "making, not taking".
>>4155879I want a monocular style body desu, aside from the lens to sensor path, there’s nothing that dictates a camera has to have the same or similar shape as old slrs. My ip range is banned from uploading images, but just imagine something like the canon PowerShot zoom. Neato.
I was waiting for a lens to come back in stock (24-120 f4 s), and when I noticed it was back in stock I went in to check it out and they only had one left, so now I'm paranoid that it is a return or something. It is a popular lens that is often sold out though so I guess I'm just going to test it a lot. What kind of tests should I run when I pick it up?
all these F4s popping up feels like companies saying "fuck you, you'll take what we give you"
>>4155943>What kind of tests should I runYou should take it out and do your photography of choice and see if they are pleasing to you or not. Post the cool pics you made here and enjoy your lens.
>>4155943if it's expensive you should shoot some stars on a clear night. any decentering issues (the only possible hidden damage or QC flaw) will be apparent when you can never get one edge or corner in focus. if you can not get 100% of the sky in focus stopped down a little to kill coma/astigmatism, return it, you'll have issues with getting landscapes in focus. if the entire sky can be in focus, the lens is fine.>>4155948it feels like companies saying "thanks for sticking with us, have a lighter, smaller lens". f2.8s were never necessary for actual picture taking. the depth of field is hilariously thin, and edge sharpness is never that great even on the best. f2.8 zooms were for making SLRs OVFs more usable in low light, even though the actual photos in low light would be taken at f4 or something. now that we have mirrorless we can just have the lenses start at f4 and be significantly easier to handle, especially since optics have gotten so good that f4 zooms wide open often perform as well as equivalent quality f2.8 zooms stopped down.
>>4155953>the depth of field is hilariously thinAnd yet F1.8s and bigger are popular.It feels like downgrading the camera down to apsc, when you could just get a cheaper apsc body and F2.8 lens (smaller because of shorter equivalent focal lengths) if you wanted smaller and lighter. If you already have FF I guess it's a nice compromise for when you want to travel light and you can still switch to faster lenses.

The ergonomics of a camera is actually quite good, better than that at least. What we really need is to decouple the viewfinder from the body, some kind of cyberpunk monocle would be the solution here.

>>4156386I have a handful of minolta MD rokkor lenses, but those are SR mount so I don't think they're the ones that work natively with sony. We did find an adapter with a correcting lens that lets us use them on my gf's D3400, though.nikon d810 is F-mount like her camera so sharing lenses is a good possibility, I hear there's some good lenses available for F-mount
Can you destroy a lens by leaving it outside in the sun? I'm stressed right now. I left my Canon EF 135mm f/2L outside on the patio during daytime for 3-4 days in a row (took it in at night to protect it from the cold). I did it because I thought some UV rays could help remove some of its musty odor (I bought it used). But now it cannot focus properly, even giving me error code sometimes when connected to my EOS R6. Images are soft/blurry and there are artifacts in various spots.I'm really bummed. This was my favorite lens.
>>4156498Just in case it ain't it, try to clean all them contacts between lens adapter and body.

Anyone use E to Z adapter? This adapter is so tiny, seems like it won't add any extra size.If this works well, then the Z mount all of a sudden becomes interesting.
>>4156388i wish, i’d pay top dollar for a full frame hi res zfc with ibis
>>4156523What is so special about the Zfc? The slimmer design/lack of a grip and the retro look?
>>4156521I thought about it but seems very risky, E mount is such a stickin zoo made up of various generations of Sony lenses, Samyangs, Tamrons, Sigmas, old Zeiss Touits, whoever is making lenses for Viltrox and who knows what else, even Yongnuo made one?There is no way in hell all of that was ever tested to work with Z-mount adapters, so you are the guinea pig.AF aside there are many ways this can go wrong, like the 56mm pic related has strong pincushion distortion, will that get applied in a Z mount body? Or, few E mount lenses have OSS, how well will stabilization work with the adapter? I haven't seen any convincing tests online yet, especially not for crops. I do see how that's tempting since Nikon currently has 3 dark zooms for Z DX and nothing else, but honestly I would bet more on adapting FTZ.
>>4156527>AF aside there are many ways this can go wrong, like the 56mm pic related has strong pincushion distortion, will that get applied in a Z mount body?Correct lens profiles won't be applied to jpeg's but you can apply them to the RAW files in LR (or any other software).AF seems to work well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sM3TctTJBQhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8elKuMt3aE
>>4156366He seems to shoot everything at either 28 or 300 mm
>>4156526purty much, yeah
>>4156561Just buy a Fuji at that point
>>4155879What mirrorless cameras can do that?
>>4156527OSS works with the adapter. IBIS works but only with 3 axis, for the remaining 2 axis you need OIS. From what I gathered the ETZ adapter essentially fakes being an FTZ adapter from the perspective of the camera. AF works on anything but Yongnuo and Viltrox lenses, and focus confirmation works for manual lenses.
>>4156526Yeah it's a camera for fashion victims. Same reason the Df has no video, Nikon just KNEW that people would buy it for the looks no matter how high the price tag. It's just ol' Nihonese jewing.
>>4156526Whenever I see a Zfc I assume the owner is fat and smelly, you don't wanna know why.
>>4156445>I don't think they're the ones that work natively with sony. >We did find an adapter with a correcting lens that lets us use them on my gf's D3400, though.The good thing about any brand of mirrorless is that you don't need the correcting lens (which is often shit). The sensor is so close to the mount so that you can emulate the original system's focus by just having it closer or father away. It's completely "passive" so no shitty China glass is needed between the sensor, just appt distance.This distance is too long from the get go on Nikon F, so therefore the correction is needed.
>>4156526>>4156631>DfIt's a pleb filter.>The Df is a camera for those who appreciate magic; if you don't understand the importance of magic, you're probably not a very good photographer and certainly will never understand the raison d'être of the Df. Yes, the D610 costs less and does more — but who wants to shoot a plastic camera? I want to love my camera, not just look forward to when I throw it away in favor of whatever comes to replace it.
>>4156523>i’d pay top dollar for a full frame zfcCome home, white man.

Hello gearfags.I recently got a GX85 and it has come to my attention that transferring pictures to phone with it is very clunky.It makes it seem like you can just press a button to send an image to phone while in playback mode (like Sony lets you, for example), but that's actually fake and only works with "LUMIX CLUB".If you want to actually transfer a photo, you dive to menu->wrench->page 1/6->wifi->wifi function->history/favorites->select the phone, then on phone you can't just open the app and let it handle connection, you have to do your own connecting to wifi in phone settings, then open the app and it will connect, then you come back to camera and choose "Image send settings", tell it that you want to select a single image to send, and choose one (and you are locked out of button while you choose).If you have a camera and phone, and you process on a phone, can you please briefly describe your experience here?
>>4156700Just to kick off the comparison, let me describe few other systems that I have had some experience with.Canon M50:There is an option to send image to phone during regular playback/chimping. If you naively select it though, camera will be happy to announce that it doesn't work unless you connect first. So, you still got to dive to menu->wrench->page 1/5->Wireless communication settings->Wi-Fi function->select phoneThen, on the phone, again, you got to connect to the right network in wifi settings, and only then open the app and let it connect.Good news though is that this connection persists, so you can go back to chimping experience, view histograms, zoom into images, and send them off to the phone one by one.Sony a6000:While in playback mode, press send to smartphone button, and select whether to send one image or pick more. Then, go to phone, open the app, and choose which camera you want to connect to. Magic, the app itself will force the phone to connect to the camera's wifi, download image(s) that you have prepared, and disconnect back.
>>4156693thing is hideous tbqhwufand i said hi res and ibisan a7rii does both, looks better, and costs lessi could even get a real fm2 with the cost difference so i don’t have to cope with a fat “””clone”””
>>4156700I just tried and both seemed to work. I created the connection on the phone, then on the app tapped the wifi button and connected to the cameras wifi, then it connected.I needed to set up 2 different connection profiles, one for sending images as I took them, and another for if I wanted to transfer multiple images. When you first set up the connection you have 4 options: remote shooting, playback on tv, send images while recording and send images stored in camera. Send images while recording will send the pictures as you shoot them to your phone, send images stored in camera let me select either send single or multiple images saved on my camera sd to my phone. It was kind of finicky to get it set up but it seemed like a one time thing. I think it only works for jpg. I think I might have had to set the mode on my phone as well (3 horizontal lines button on the bottom right > set connect. dest. > select function to what I wanted), but I didn't need lumix club or anything else
Guys, which setup would you rather have? Lets say they cost the same.Canon R6> RF 24-105mm f4L> RF 100-400mm f5.6-8> RF 16mm f2.8> Sigma 40mm f1.4 Art> RF 50mm f1.8 STM> RF 85mm f2 STM> EF 135mm f2L> EF to RF adapterSony A7RIV> Sony 20-70mm f4 G> Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM II> Sony 35mm f1.4 GM
>>4156798The Canon because of the lenses and ergonomics but neither sounds appealing. I'd rather keep most of the money and get a 5D4 instead, if you absolutely NEED to buy brand new.
>>4156798The sony because of the more modular ergonomics, open mount, and superior lenses.You listed a ton of lenses for the canon but you could get all of those and more for sony later, and in optically superior configurations as well. But most of those focal lengths are pretty niche so you don't need them at all, really.
>>4156760I suppose it may just be a skill issue, or maybe I just didn't understand what you are describing and things are as bad as I think.Going to the hamburger menu in the app and "setting connection destination" with "Direct" selected makes the app protest saying that the phone is not connected to WiFi and even gives a link into WiFi settings. So to begin with, I really do have to go to camera, have it create a WiFi network, and then go to the phone and connect to it.After that's done I have one shot, one opportunity, to upload single or multiple images. Trying to go to playback view and using upload button (down arrow) actually results in camera saying "Cannot connect because already connected to Wi-Fi". Manual says that's a hotkey for lumix club.
>>4156810>more modular ergonomicskek, that's a funny way to say it needs add-ons for the handling to not be shit
>>4156823The handling is great with normal sized lenses, and okay with extremely large lenses that aren't normally used. All you need for the larger lenses is a cheap bracket or battery grip.I'll take that over the entire camera being massive all of the time. A camera that starts out massive can only get more and more massive if you want an L bracket for use with arca mounts or a battery grip, and then you're like "wow the ergonomics with my 200-600 are great". Such massive sizes are very niche. Prior to the DSLR bullshit, most cameras were quite small, and during the DSLR bullshit days, people who took it seriously still shot those smaller film cameras because they still had clearly superior image quality.
>>4156824The size difference isn't large enough to make it pocketable and it's not felt with the camera on a strap. Keep coping, small hands.
>>4156824Now back to the question, why would someone buy the Sony with less lenses AND inferiority in every possible way from ergonomics to weather sealing and stabilization? Not to mention the elephant in the room, that baby mount.

>>4156698I'm probably not the best to ask since I'venever really used mirrorless. I only have F mount stuff. I would say it depends on your use cases, there are pros and cons with both.>mirrorlessIf you want something smaller and lighter. If you are hiking much and want to save weigt, and more importantly space, this may be important. I feel that just my D3300 is quite big to have in my hiking backpack for multi day hikes with tent, sleeping bag, cookware, etc. (Then again I'm a lonefag and you have a gf you could split much gear with of that's the case.) But with lenses ML isn't always "that" smaller than DSLRs, lighter though.Also, if you want to use vintage lenses (not just old, but you know the ones) for fun and not out of necessity a ML is better. All vintage lens guys on YT use them for that reason. (It sounds like you want to use them out of necessity at the moment, but I might be wrong?)Tying into above, focusing will be easier on MF lenses.>F mount DSLRIf you don't mind the added size and weight you can get a good used camera for a cheap price. I got a full frame D610 this summer. Same with lenses, if you want you can buy previous generation's pro gear for next to nothing. The 35-70mm 2.8 D you can find for like 120 bucks. They are often heavier than modern lenses though, which may be a good or bad thing, as they are usually higher mechanical quality (not optically though) than new stuff.And you can of course get the newer better stuff at a higher price. It's not like the F mount is ancient. Bear in mind that since your gf have a budget cam, she will not be able to use all the features of the old lenses, many may be locked to manual focus, or if even older be fully manual, with no measurement. If you buy a better model these things will be no problem for you though. However if you get a full frame (FX) her (DX) lenses wont give you full images. There are better DX models too that will work with older lenses.1/2
>>4156698My personal experience with the D610 is that it's nice to use when using, it feels better that my brother's ML, Sony A6000, to use and handle. That ML feels a bit like a better point and shoot.However it's quite heavy and dangle annoyingly when walking around. The cheap lenses are neat though, I'm not really pixel peeping so don't think they are bad or anything. Just got this >>41564272/2

>>4156815Nah I think you have it described right. Maybe your best option is just to send captured photos to your phone automatically so they are all on there and you only have to connect once per shoot.
I consider buying either a Cine Lens (7Artist Vision) or an anamorphic lens by Suri for my APS-C camera. Any recommendations? Currently own the Simga 16mm F1.4
