>>4248497why is the autofocus on my liveview more accurate than autofocus in my optical view?I t5hought my Sigma Art lens was sharp on my Canon90D but seeing pictures with people shooting with vintage lenses I am suprised. Should I get a vintage? Which one?

>>4248566People would upload elsewhere and just post the link. Post processing threads used to be very common.>>4248545Different autofocus systems. Live view uses exactly what's hitting the sensor, through ovf it uses a separate af module. If you're consistently front or back focusing, that's what AF fine tune is for.

>>4248497im not a photographer but ive seen a lot of hype around the g7x. ive got a g9 and wouldnt mind learning a thing or two about photography with it. where do i start in terms of settings and post processing? how do i get digital to look like film? what different "styles" of photography are there for me to look into? 'street photography' seems like such a large blanket term. thanks
>take pic of person and something in the background, both are in focus>try same with my camera but need something like f/12 which would demand impossible shutterspeed and iso.wtf kind of settings do i use to replicate what my phone does normally
>>4249173In theory you should be able to shoot at f12 and push the ISO up and still get the same quality of pic, but I can't help thinking it would be noisy as shit cos it cant do the trickery a phone can.
>>4249175I guess 6400 iso isnt that bad nowadays. Its just weird id need it in full sunlight because i want to have both a person and a building or other background stuff in focus.
>>4249179After years of chasing the blurriest background, I'm finding I want more and more in focus these days.

What's the point of a good film camera body? The film does the light capture and all the lenses are manual focus. As long as the light meter works, does the camera body actually matter for film?
>>4248545>why is the autofocus on my liveview more accurate than autofocus in my optical view?Different AF systems. OVF AF has a more complicated light path creating potential alignment issues with lenses. Use AF micro adjustment to get the same accuracy you get on LiveView.>I t5hought my Sigma Art lens was sharp on my Canon90D but seeing pictures with people shooting with vintage lenses I am suprised.You're probably looking at RAW shots from your camera vs. processed shots from others. Even Sigma ART benefits from post processing.
>>4249523>What's the point of a good film camera body? The film does the light capture and all the lenses are manual focus. As long as the light meter works, does the camera body actually matter for film?Features. Build quality / weather resistance. Light meter accuracy. Flash metering. Max shutter speed. Ergonomics. And for AF film bodies, AF performance.None of this directly affects film image quality, but some of it indirectly does. Metering, flash metering, AF performance on bodies with AF...
>>4249539Cool thanks. I didn't know there were AF film bodies
>>4248919catbox, pomf lain... many options out there retard.
Does having a fast aperture matter on a lens you plan on using for landscape? You're going to stop it down anyways, right?
>>4250020Not directly, because you'll probably be at f8 and above most of the time, but most good zooms are at least f4.
>>4250020Maybe for nighttime landscape. With full moon, IBIS/OIS and a fast lens, handheld is doable. Other than that, not really. Situations where you'd want more than f/4 worth of foreground blur are very rare.
How do you organize your photos.I currently use this kind of layout:Directory for each year's pictures (in JPEG). e.g. Pictures <year>.Separate directory for camera raw & scanned photos. It's kind of like a staging area.import/raw/<year>/<month>/<day>/It kind of works, but I'm lazy and lots of stuff tend to accumulate in the raw dir. Any better suggestions?
I got a new camera on ebay and I can't tell if the camera/lens focus is off because maybe it's been dropped or if i'm just taking terrible pictures because I have a terrible monitor. Is there a way for me to check without getting a new monitor?
>>4248545Carl Zeiss Jena 50mm. They're cheap and fucking brilliant. I can also recommend their 135mm, so nice to use... Unfortunately mine is full of dust. Coz it's old as fuck.
>>4250355are you retardedjust post a pic here
>>4248497DP Review posts full size RAW on their reviews.Not sure about anywhere else.
>>4248545EF mount is not the best if you want to play around with vintage stuff - it has a pretty long flange distance and many vintage lenses cannot be used. Copying from stack exchange:>Forget using Canon FD lenses on EOS cameras. You can't get infinity focus with those lenses without adding additional optics.1 This is because at 42mm the FD mount has a shorter registration distance (a/k/a flange focal distance) than the 44mm of the EF mount. If you insist on using non-EF lenses on EOS cameras, lenses made for mounts with longer registration distances than the EF mount would be preferred. The 44.5mm Minolta A-mount is out due to mechanical clearance issues. Ditto for the Olympus OM mount. That leaves Nikon F and Pentax K as the most likely candidates.But honestly - you're unlikely to find vintage lenses that beat modern stuff, and you'll have to pay big money for the privilege. Old lenses are usually preferred for character rather than IQ. And they usually work better on mirrorless cameras.
When photographers offer portrait packages and have stuff like>standard session: 5 edited/retouched photosDoes that mean you deliver only the 5 edited photos? Or do you guys give them everything you shot along with the 5 of those to edit?

I can't find the recommendation thread so excuse me if this is in the wrong place. Artfag here. I need a <$1500 camera for photographing my drawings and paintings. What should I buy?
>>4251972Full frame + 4 shot pixel shift for color accuracy/no false detail/no noise is the ideal scanning setup before blowing five figures on medium format digital and dedicated art scanners.The lens is most of what decides your budget. Bodies can be had for a steal. Lenses hold their value much better because they will most likely work as new for 25-50 years. If I were you I'd do >sony a7riii + LA-EA3 adapter + minolta 100mm f2.8 macroIt would be manual focus only but the entire setup wouldn't come in much higher than $1500 if you bought smart. Sony's autofocusing long macro is optically about as good, only sharper wide open (which you wouldn't use) and 9x more expensive. Sony also makes a cheap autofocus 50mm f2.8 macro but getting that close could interfere with lighting depending on subject size.>Pentax K1 + Pentax d fa 100mm f2.8 macro WRDoes what you need, not much else, the lens selection for some purposes is simultaneously bad and expensive but it has your use case covered quite well and would be slightly cheaper, with autofocus.
>>4251979PS: do not fall for the LA-EA4 meme for focusing screw drive lenses, the SLT loses sharpness and 1/3 stop of light, if you want to spend more on a lens but not that much more just buy a manual macro lens from laowa
Dumbass question but do you think I’ll get more likes on instagram if I use longer focal lengths with lots of bokeh? Just feels like nobody cares about wider focal lengths with large depths of field. Like, if you look at the hashtag for the Canon EOS R6, #canonr6, all the top posts are for really long focal lengths. Anyway I know this is dumb but what do you think[EXIF data available.

How do you settle on a focal length?I have 28, 35, 50, and 85mm primes. I go through phases where I really like one length and go at it for awhile. Then I have a time with the 28 where I wish I had the bokeh from a 50 or 85, or I have the 50 and wish I could get wider to fully fit a building in the frame. My wife loves 50 and doesn’t share this anxiety. She’s shot professionally and has stuck with 50 for 15 years. I know it can be done Any thoughts or comments?

>>4248497I've got a Nikon D3500 with the 18-55 and 70-300 kit lenses. I've got the opportunity to do some food photography for a restaurant and their cookbook, are there any vintage lenses to look for? Specifically I'd like a macro lens because the extension tubes I've got are a pain, or something that handles low light better than my kit lenses (it's a very dark restaurant).
What' the different between video camera and camera with video function?

>>4248497I got the Canon M50 with the 15-45mm (f/3.5-6.3) and the 55-200mm (f/4.5-6.3). I am now thinking of getting a 11-22mm (f/4.0-5.6) on sale.Reason because I want to shoot interiors and also vlog. I found the 15-45 lens focal range is way too zoomed in for the cramp interiors I am filming. I really want to get the right shot thats why I willing to fork over the dough for this new lens.The interiors I want to film are quite dark. I found it difficult on my 15-45mm on the lowest fstop and attempting to keep the ISO below 1600. Im also stuck to 60 frames and 125 shutter speed as that looks best for my movies.Should I get the lens? Its performance in dark conditions is bad due to the fstop/speed capabilities.Or maybe drop the frames and shutter speed just for those difficult shots? I watched a lot of vids on this lens and am undecided.
New hobbyist looking to get into photography in a small way. I'm not interested in the artsy (blown out bokeh backgrounds, street/portraiture) aspects of photography, I really want to capture subjects fully in focus as close to exactly the way I see them as possible and I don't particularly care about separating the background as long as my subject is sharp. Most of what I'd like to take pictures of is small things I see when I'm hiking such as insects, mushrooms, snakes and other critters but I'd also like to be able to take decent landscapes. Does a dedicated ILC camera make sense for my use case or would I be better served with a point and shoot like the Olympus Tough series or just phone snapshitting?

Anyone know of any online sites for camera gear that don't charge sales tax? Over the past few years they've become increasingly rare. I used to use mpb quite a bit but they've changed to charging sales tax.Ideally, a site specializing in used camera gear that doesn't give a fuck about sales tax.
Are there any ~$300 or less long zooms for f mount worth getting? My buddy's dad has a d750 and a kit zoom, he showed interest in birding when I showed him the shots I got with my 70-300.

>>4254485My camera had a internal non-removable battery that powered some hardware that remembered the clock and internal settings.

recommendation for a compact mirror less camera around 700 usd to be my first upgrade from a phoneI was thinking Eos m200 but no viewfinder and dead mountor A6400 but bad RAWsI'm from Brazil so brand choice is limited to Canon, Sony, Fuji and NikonI want to do some street photography so something that doesn't stands out is better
>>4255684A6400 raws are fine. Just use a full frame lens and turn off vignetting correction in camera. Samyang af 35mm f2.8 is all you need.

I'm going on an international trip. Ideally across Asia (India, Cambodia, Thailand, etc). I want to make some cinematic vlog videos about touring these places. I have a Fuji XT2 right now.

Should I get a gimbal, or a Glidecam? Should I sell the XT2 body, and get a more modern Fuji? Or sell everything and switch to Sony? Any suggestions or advice? Thanks.

>>4255930IS on xt2 is still god tier, are you trolling

Beginner film photographer looking for advice on which digital camera to get.I've been shooting film on my konica autoreflex t3 for a solid year now and I want to go digital.Any recommended full frame (mirrorless preferably) models? I read that full frame is best if I decide to adapt my hexanon AR lenses but are there any specific models out there that just work better for this setup? I have a good selection of konica glass that I dont want to just bench if possible.(Is adapting older lenses even worth it?)
>>4257188A7ii, RP, R8, Z5, Z6, S5, fucking anything really, all the difference made during last decade was for AF.
>>4257298Thank you for the suggestions, time to go over the models that you linked and stoooody.

I'm considering buying a ring flash for my EOS R50 to mainly take photos of figures, but everyone I asked about it was against it. They told me I should get some cheap lamps instead and diffuse the light. I don't really want to mess with too many lights, I just want to know why does flash considered bad? Currently I use my built in flash for photos and honestly I like them, except the fact, that if the lens is extended half of the flash light won't reach the object I'm photographing.
>>4257305Avoid sony cameras they are unreliable and have bad color rendition and LOTS of vignetting (over 3 stops even on $$$$ lenses)
I've got a $200 gift card, making this T7 total $239. Is this a good buy for a first DSLR? Purpose is planetary photography, so I'll likely end up also needing a 75-300mm lens.
>>4257432The T7 should be fine for a beginner.But consider if you need all these accessories. If you are new this might not be an easy decision. My impressions are:>do you need a bag and is that one any good?>a charger and strap are always included>I never used macro adapters, but wouldn't expect magic from them and they won't help you with planets>the T7 has a built in flash (which is less powerfull than this one, but this also might be a shit flash)>A second battery is nice>these filters will be useless, except for the ND>a remote trigger is nice>so is a SD card and a place to store them>a micro fibre cloth is 1EUR where I live, I never sprayed anything on my lenses to clean them>these flash diffusors will soften the flash a little, but will most likely never be used>the tripod and tripod head are shit, even for a starter and especially if you plan to use it often>a SD card adapter is useful if your machine can't read SDs Consider buying a used camera and make a list of gear and accessories you plan on using (or think you will be). It might save money (but waste time) to buy the core gear first and then figure out what you actually need in the field.

In the locations folder it would be areas I specifically name them things like, "bobs farm", "x river" and so on. I find it easier and faster to find the photos I'm looking for instead of trying to remember specifically which week/month/year I took them

I'm confused, do you need to download a Canon picture style profile and install it through the EOS utility or can you just use the settings that people provide and do it in camera?Does installing it through the utility do something extra?
>>4252905ultimately it's best if you come to terms with missing shots. there will always be a shot you can't get with what you have at hand.

>>4257817>Is there a way to save them? Can I have them scanned and restored to print in a bigger size? Or no?Sure. Find a scanning service close to you. Get them done in a high enough resolution. The "restoration" you'll probably have to do yourself in Photoshop or whatever when you get the digital scans. Or just find someone who can do it for you. Should be easy enough unless they're totally fucked up. Then just on to a printing service.

I've recently sidegraded to an older generation of my camera, I love it plenty, but if I'll take a photo at iso 6400 and then push it +1ev, my older generation camera starts showing a pattern in noise, bottom part is tinted purple, top part is fine though some specific pattern is still present. I would love to be able to learn about that just by reading reviews. So, is it measured? Is there a name for "an uniformity of noise" on high ISOs?

I do portraits of my family too so I have a wireless 2 flash system and some softboxes and standsdo I need to learn to edit those meme looks like the desaturated everything but yellows/oranges/reds and greens
How do I make CR3 thumbnails work in Windows Explorer without converting?
>>4248497I want an affordable compact to take with me when I'm out and taking pics in the wild. I have a DSLR but I keep that at home, and my smartphone camera is shit because it's just a dinky Tracphone. Are sub 300 compact digitals even worth it? If so what are some decent ones? I like to take pics of small things like flowers and bugs, so a fixed zoom is something I'm trying to avoid.
Context is a Canon EOS 60D with Tamron 18-270 and Canon 10-221. My camera sometimes has focus issues especially in anything other than perfect daylight. It will cycle through the focal ring to one extreme, then back to the other, then display a red rectangle overlaid on the screen. From memory, this issue didn't always happen, it's only been a problem for about 4 years. Is there anything I can do to fix it?2. Many photos I take seem to not be crisply in focus. Pic related on the Tamron lens is wholly not in focus and has noticeable visible fringing even near the centre of the image. I took this photo about a year ago and I couldn't tell you what I was supposed to be focusing on.3. Leading on from 2, when I take photos I have difficulty telling on the camera's screen if they are in fully in focus or not owing to its small size, and I'm not confident enough with setting manual focus to be able to reliably focus it this way.4. Many photos I take come out dark unless I take them under sunny blue skies. Even when I heighten the ISO and use a longer exposure time, they still seem muted. Do I just have to increase the ISO even more and edit out the noise later? I can't lower the exposure time too much otherwise they end up being blurry.5. The chart in this article https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/photography/features/lens-sharpest-aperture-sweet-spot suggests that optimal sharpness can be obtained by using a few stops up from the maximum aperture. Searching suggests that the optimal values are f/8-11 for the Tamron and f/5.6-8 for the Canon. Does this seem correct? I'm confused about the difference between the lens's advertised maximum aperture and how it relates to the aperture I select on my camera when taking a photo.6. Could anyone recommend a decent prime lens that isn't too expensive that could potentially solve the above issues? The purpose would be for general travel (not landscapes), so I imagine I can get away with anything around 35-40mm.

How do I get my modern mirrorless camera to look like my old Nikon D40 shots? I found when I moved to my mirrorless camera I got what I expected, which was better noise performance and dynamic range mostly, but editing became a lot less fun. I don't like the colors I get out of my camera and everything looks kinda sterile. I noticed looking back at my D40 shots (they're really nothing special) that I really liked the colors and overall "look". These are RAWs processed in Darktable, but I actually didn't have to do much, I don't even think I messed with colors at all usually. With my new (ish) camera I have to adjust saturation, contrast, etc and when I'm done I don't like the result as much. I feel like I'm nuts because I've looked at comparisons and I don't really buy the whole CCD thing. Is there some setting I should be messing with to try to get this kind of look?[EXIF data available.

I have a FF bodyI have a 50I have an 85And I am tired of this not paying for itself.Is shooting portraits and products still a profitable activity if you have no interest in being a slave to the airline schedule and hanging around with snobs and future starvation victims? I do not live in NYC/SF/etc and will never, I can afford to live somewhere nice. Or should I just buy a telephoto and try selling wildlife prints on amazon?I really do NOT want to do wedding photography. I would never use the gear for it (huge "soulless protog" zooms with very little range, backup bodies, 35mm f1.2+85mm f1.2 primes that women love and I think make for really fucking shitty photos) for anything else and to be honest with you I fucking hate having anything to do with being at weddings. My own wedding was bad enough. >>4259106Colors come from lenses rite? Use your old lenses. Also you're using darktable. Of course colors are hard to work with. Darktable doesn't support newer cameras well so you're basically trying to profile your camera from scratch. Try pirating capture one. They're not on a purely subscription model yet.
>>4259370>why isn't my gear paying for itself?>should i get more gear?Maybe you just aren't good at photography.
>>4259379I haven't even tried to seek out clients because I would need to buy more gear just to compete with what the other 50 photographers within an hour drive can offer. I have shot at weddings before, but for free so only using a 50 was supplemented by 2-3 other people in the family bringing their cameras so it didn't matter if I couldn't take a single row group shot indoors for a lack of roomAs it stands I'd have to turn jobs down because of a lack of zoom, turn jobs down if the weather doesn't cooperate (that's every day outside of a 2 month period) I'd have to cancel, and everyone else has 2+ bodies, a mountain of lenses, and a studio. It's not looking good in this pay to play profession
>>4259389Photography is retarded because everyone is doing it so whatever retard buys the most lenses for his r5 basically wins by being able to shoot everything on request. Video works better because you can move and you don’t even need amazing gear. If a family wants a group shot indoors you can pan from several angles, ez.
>>4248497I just got pic related from Aldi Süd>55 W, 25 €, CRI > 90Whadda ya think?
>>4259370>Darktable doesn't support newer cameras well so you're basically trying to profile your camera from scratch.Damn didn't know this part, I assumed it treated all cameras the same. I'll consider C1, thanks. Will give a cheap manual adapter for my old lenses a try too.
how do i decide on a tripod

>>4259370Are you sure you want to make money with your photography? It sounds like you're enjoying taking pictures as an artistic pursuit, but loathe everything that could monetize it. Maybe you would be happier getting paid from somewhere else while being free to shoot whatever you want.
