>>4254427Raw always looks better unless your camera is so poorly designed raw looks as bad as a jpeg, like sony and fuji. A real computer can process files more effectively. A camera has to do it fast enough to maintain the published framerate on weaker hardware.
What happened to that anon with a soft as fuck Nikon telephoto prime lens
>>4254404nnnoooo thats not what i was asking, the opposite of that>>4254439thank u i try
>>4254442It's the other way roundIt's easier for the camera to write a jpg because it can simply cut iff excess data it would othewise have to writeIf you shoot jpg only, there is no intermediate raw that is used to produce the jpg and then discarded>>4254427I guess you mean the white balance?

>>4254427same here. c1 just beats anything .jpg out of the box. I tried many brands: panasonic, olympus, fuji, snoy and nikon. but nikon + c1 auto levels is just superb to everything else. back to shooting raw only.sadly c1 are supreme jews with their subscription BS so I bought a perpetual license and got shafted as their recent minor release isn't included in my license kek. guess gonna pirate it in the future.[EXIF data available.

>>4254453it's a heavy metal lens, some people can't get it up
>>4254466So are houses and comfy memories of White society.
>>4254509maybe if you stopped using zipperhead cameras and used instead superior Teutonic ones this wouldn't haven happen
>>4254482>22,32 and 56mm lensen and kitlensThat's really good, if you want to leave system eventually I would start stacking EF lenses instead of EF-M, which are later adaptable to RF, Sony, etc. anything else really, but you already have a lot covered with those lenses, I can't see a better compact setup for either of those.What zoom would you like? A wide? 10-18 EF-S. A bird lens? Sigma 150-600 for EF. Both can carry over to any other mirrorless later.If you have no idea what you want, but you have gas and *need* to spend money on something, get EVF-DC2 for it.

>>4254591The only painful part that comes to mind is that your lens will be partially extended at some focal length in the middle of the range and you'll need to find it every time or keep it like that. Zooms are also generally kind of large, but maybe not the f/7.1 one.

Partial repost from last thread. I'm looking at upgrading from an EOS 60D to a mirrorless body and would like to take advantage of black Friday sales if possible. I'm going on an extended holiday to Japan in December and would like to sort my camera out before I go. The 60D has been a good camera but in the past several years has had issues such as the display flipping upside down, and issues with the autofocus slowly attempting to focus on something then failing. This is a notable downside when trying to photograph something (unexpected) happening quickly.I have these lenseshttps://www.dpreview.com/reviews/tamron-18-270mm-3p5-6p3-vc-pzdhttps://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/lenses/canon_10-22_3p5-4p5My primary purpose is travel photography. Most of my photos end up being of landscapes but that's not by preference and mostly due to the camera being bulky and impractical for when wanting to enjoy myself as a tourist walking around. I would like to take more photos of events, crowds of people, subjects etc. I'm not planning on taking photos of sports or other very fast paced things.Thanks to an anon's recommendation from last thread I'm looking at the R10 and have been looking at the R8 and R7 as well due to this threadhttps://community.usa.canon.com/t5/EOS-DSLR-Mirrorless-Cameras/Upgrading-from-My-EOS-60D/td-p/416887I'm a little put off by the R10 being described as an "entry level content creator" camera, but I also note the R7 only has a handful of features over it. According tohttps://www.kenrockwell.com/canon/eos-r/compared/r7-vs-r10.htmThe biggest ones are increased build quality and in-camera stabilization. I don't know how much that impacts practical photography.The R8 looks great as well although I'm concerned that my Tamron lens isn't compatible with the FF sensor meaning I would need a new telephoto in addition to the body itself. The cost of this camera is probably at the upper limit of my budget.cont
>>4254685I'm not sure if I would benefit properly from a FF body because I have no experience with one, but at the same time I would hate to buy a new body and have it feel functionally the same as my current one. So I please need help choosing between APS-C and FF, and if APS-C, the R7 or R10.I should also add that I don't care about video as I only use it for stills, and that I'm not 100% confident on my understanding of specs and what they mean in a practical sense.
>>425468590D and R7 are both direct upgrade, but really you can commit any camera system since every Fujisonikon at this point has an adapter to EF-S.
>>4254679The tamron.A good all in one zoom is worth its weight in gold
>>4254685IBIS is HUGE for photography and enables you to stop down and lower the ISO for static scenes and held poses. Lacking 5 stop IBIS is basically unforgivable. Any better has limited practicality and works better for video just because IBIS ratings assume you try to hold still. So 8 stop isn’t 8 stop unless you basically lay down and hold the camera against yourself or are a human statue.THE major downside is because it’s shifting the film plane the perspective can shift, worse with wide angle lenses, blurring only the periphery, while the center is sharp.
>>4254685ig please note, R7 has sensor upgrade over R10 as wellboth of your lenses are aps-c, not just tampon
i'm thinking of getting one of those lenses that threads onto the filter thread that widens everything to use with my tilt shift lens, talk me into and / or out of this
>>4254733Is just lack of ibis enough to upgrade?t.shaky fucker
>>4254959It depends, IBIS gives ability to just handhold longer exposures by at least a few stops. If you shoot something that moves fast, it doesn't help. If you shoot with tripod, it doesn't help. If you want to shoot a delicious cinematic dimly lit gas station at night, handheld, it's very impressive.
>>4254691Thank you, but having more to choose from just makes the decision harder. Earlier this year a friend recommended a Fuji X-S10, but other than that I'm not really sure what to go for and feel a little concerned about switching body manufacturers. I know I'll need to buy an adapter either way, however.Based on this threadhttps://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4662787It seems like the X-S10 trades features for a lower weight and price. Based on the OP's breakdown of features I think autofocus of the R7 stands out to me as an important feature.>>4254733>>4254737Thank you anon, I think the R7 is more appealing unless there's something better in a similar price bracket. I can get a body only for $1260 USD ($2100 NZD local currency) at the moment.>>4254977This aspect of it seems quite important to me because I would like to carry my camera around more in urban environments - as opposed to walking in the countryside or driving and stopping.
>>4254979Don't buy a Fuji, they're the worst cameras per dollar spent. The XS-10 trades quality for the X-tranny quirk too.Get a 90D and enjoy reflex before they take them from us.
>>4254979Fuji cameras underperform because the CFA is poorly designed. They have 2/3 their stated resolution unless photographing a monochrome target for reason similar to why true monochrome cameras and foveon cameras are higher resolution.Get the r7, a6700, a used z6, a7iii, something, just avoid fuji, and don’t listen to cANON
>>4255033>don’t listen to cANON>repeats what I just saidwhat did he mean by this?also the guy has EF lenses and those are best on the 90D
>>4255035Would they really work that much worse on R7, with IBIS?
>>4255038They would work better. The 90d is garbage. Doesn’t even do good video. Doesn’t have a superior evf. Worse autofocus. Can’t use superior RF lenses. It sucks. Better yet buy a sony. I think it’s monster that has the best EF adapter for them.
>>4255050Monster doesn't make one at all, Metabones?
>>4255057Arr rook same.

>>4254977When I bought a new camera, this one >>4254482, I had to wade through endless reviews of seemingly similar cameras and didnt realize ibis was an important thing...since I use it for stills mostly and often I have to take several pics even at a ove 1/150 because I moved.
I have a bunch of lenses. I’m starting to think I stocked up on too many shitters and I should sell them all for one L-series lens.

I just got an eos m200 and i liked it a lot, its a pretty nice camera and a nice upgrade from the old rebel t5iBut i keep asking myself if i should return it and get a sony A6400 instead because its not a dead mount + viewfinder.
>>4255154sigma 150-600 contemporary. Mine is a stack of about 35 images though which helps marginally with noise and contrast, plus I went a bit far on the sliders on the final image
>>4255422It's not bad at all but a6400 is even better
>>4254455Don't you get a full upgrade to the next version if you buy it?
hope this is a good thread. so im thinking about a bag, this is what i found and i think its gonna suit me well, where i live its the same price as peak design slingbag 3l but this one has way more space, is more like a backpack and camera is easy to access. anyway, anybody maybe have/had this and can share some opinions and/or recommendations?
>>4255654Cant give any recommendations but oh my lord get a backpack bag and save your shoulders.
>>4255655yeah that's my only concern. i won't be carrying a lot of weight but it will be for longer periods of time
>>4255663I have a lot of packs and slings... if it's not a lot of weight, a sling is better for the reasons you stated as well as comfort; if you live somewhere warm it's easy to move it around so you don't sweat. Just can just slide it up and down every few minutes without thinking to keep air moving over your back. If you do end up putting a bit more weight in it on occasion, that's what the chest/waist strap is for. You're supposed to cinch it high and let the pack rest on it. Look for one with a strap you can swap from one side to the other as well.That said, I haven't used anything more than my pockets in years, apart from camping.
>>4255663If you don't carry a lot of weight, why would you want that huge sling bag? I do have a sling bag that I think was officially supposed to be a fanny pack and it fits a huge ass lens positioned across my body. The pack on your picture should fit two cameras, holy trinity of lenses, a laptop, and a change of clothes. Which at that point it should be a backpack. Also fuck "photographer bags" in particular.
>>4255676it's pretty small actually, i'd rather get this over lets say peak design as I mentioned since I can put more stuff in here like water random shit I buy when exploring places I visit, also that quick camera access seems pretty cool
>>4255685IMHO, as pictured, this is large
>>4255690maybe i'm used to bigger stuff then
What's your dream minimal system? Where you throw away everything except for a few lenses and a single body, maybe some accessories. I like the idea of just keeping a few primes, one for macro, a wide angle and a super telephoto, maybe:- a fast 35mm for landscape, low light- 100mm f2.8 macro and portraits- 400mm for wildlife- flash and fold up diffuserThe alternative one I come up with is:- 35mm for landscape- 100-400mm with raynox 250 for macro...but then I think more about portraits and mid-range zooms and I end up where I am now. Do you ever dream up mini kits?

I bet a lot of people would be served perfectly fine with an older 5d or d700/750.But so much camera content is trying to sell shit. The companies need to sell more stuff every quarter and the hype train must ride.There’s some truth to the trolly “let me guess, you need more” meme.

>>4255948Other than >>4255966 the industry went down the mirrorless path for the sake of automation - the sensor is now responsible for providing a computer with full time info about wtf is happening in front of the camera, pdaf sensors have moved onto the same chip (and lost their IR assist light compatibility), so camera can automatically figure out what the subject is, where its eye is, and is able to track focus in real time.
>>4255966Mirrorless is much more convenient to travel with and dslr OVFs are the worst between modern EVFs and MF film SLR OVFs. I draw the line there. A 5diii does take pictures, but it’s primitive applebook tier design makes it a camera shaped wall between you and life. Shit’s the size of a mamiya medium format. Give me a dated digital LEICA, however, and i’ll say gear doesn’t matter. Good rangefinders are timeless.
>>4256037basically this. mirrorless brought a package of quality of life and optics shit that used to be exclusive to leicas which are rare and expensive. you would never get something like the sony 40mm f2.5 on slrs, it requires that super shallow mount and mirror boxes block it, and if you get a body as small as the a7c it would be apsc with a shit pentamirror viewfinder and a hazy plastic fresnel for a focusing screen. and you would still be focusing through a soft lens wide open.

I want a Nikon Z3 (full frame z30)How high are my chances?
>>4256883close to zero. If you like the concept snoy already has zv-e1 though, why wait for boomers at nikon?Besides, if there is a camera in their inventory that they would've cut off the viewfinder from and sell it to dumbs (sorry) and vloggers, it's gonna be the Z5, not something better.
>>4255909a nice portrait lense
It's amazing that there is no activity here on black friday, I'm trying to stop myself from buying a snoy 35mm 1.8 for $415.
>>4255033Thanks everyone for the earlier feedback. I'm more or less set on the R7 now, just one more question. Buying an adapter for my lenses (>>4254685) is there any difference between the first-party Canon one and third-party ones?https://www.photowarehouse.co.nz/shop/shop-by-product/camera-lenses-2/canon-rf-full-frame-mount/canon-mount-adapter-ef-eos-rhttps://photogear.co.nz/shop-by-department/jjc-canon-ef-rf-lens-mount-adapter/Examples of what I mean.
>>4257898No from what I can tell there's just flex inside, it would work as pass through like 3rd party macro rings.
Newfag that wants to start just causally. Going to visit family in the winter. FIL bought all these cameras over the years since they'd be a few dollars, wondering if there's a standout of the bunch to start with>Pentax Spotmatic/F/K100/ME/ME F/Z-10/MZ-60>Olympus OM-1n>Futura S>Ihagee: Exakta V (Varex)>rest are compact camera/box cameras
>>4258041The OM1It's small, it's light, the viewfinder is bright, it's piss easy to use (turn it on, and fiddles with aperture and speed until the needle is in the middle, no bullshit)It's a lovely little fella
>>4254395Is the Fujifilm X-T3 worth it in [current year]? Barely missed one for 200€ yesterday and I'm not sure if I shouldn't care or go fuck myself because of it.
>>4258265You shouldn't care but it's a good
>>4255422having a viewfinder helps me frame better especially in direct sunlight
>>4258265The gap between 3 and 4 is drastic enough in 2020+3, soon to be 4 that you shouldn't beat yourself up for it. The X-T3 is good, but prices for an X-T4 are starting to meteor the longer that the X-T5 is out, that it would be more worth your value getting an X-T4.

>>4255909Greatest lens ever, even corrected for astigmatism. How many lenses are on the market that you can shoot stars and street lights at f/1.4? yeaht. haver of that lens>>4254395Great lens, same optically as all the other 80-200 2.8s, even better than the frist 70-200 2.8 (but not on par with the VRII, which also got the tripot mount)You'll have a bad surprise when you'll need to put it on a tripod, but for a price lower than a kit lens, heh...t.

>>4255747i already have it. 15, 21 and 40mm, all for street. 4 lenses. nothing else
>>4255747Z mount sigma fp with sony autofocus, canon FPS, leica colors, a pop up EVF, and a screen so bright phones would shit themselves.
>>4255747This minimal thing only works at the beginning as then you'll become an hoarder and you can get outside with any kind of lens.Anyway, the first lens I bought was the 180 2.8, bought for less than a kit lens more than 10 years ago, it is one of the lenses I used the most as you get the focal length you'll always use with a 70-200 2.8 but on a, like, 700g package.So, the 180 2.8, a 50 or 35mm 1.4 and a 14 1.8 or 20mm 1.4 for a 3 lenses kit on a D800 or a D810
>>4258307alright >>4258354>look up used x-t4 prices>start at 900€, median 1300€I fucking hate living in Germany, everything is too fucking expensive, even a Sony Alpha II is like 700€ here AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
>>4258439Shop other brands, Sony and Fujifilm are awful value used in Europe but Panasonic and Nikon keep dropping, by now you can easily get a Z6 or S5 for less than that X-T4.
>>4258443>S5>700€ to 900€>Z6>Also 700€ to 900€I don't know why but for some reason used sellers are always freaking delulu in Germany, the private ones more so than those who do it as a business.I guess I'll keep shooting 35mm Film on my AE-1 then ... but Film also costs 4 times what it did when I started with that, I fucking hate it here.
>>4258457>I fucking hate it hereLeave. There seem to be some people who would be happy to live in Germany.
>>4258352yeah thats what i was thinking tooended up returning the m200 and getting a Z50

>>4258485I don't mean to sound cocky or ignorant on how Europe works, but can't you look at other markets in the EU for used gear like France, Belgium, or Spain for example?Like, if an X-T4 is x amount in Germany, couldn't it be cheaper in France, and so on?
>>4258485> poorfag> complaining about welfarelmao
>>4258491You can, it may or may not be more difficult to get it to ship though, and going through national websites is a pain due to different languages and not knowing where to look. In any case MPB ships anywhere in continental Europe from Germany and sets the used market rate. You can get better deals from individuals but you may spend a lot of time looking for it if you don't live in a huge metro area.
>>4258498I'm the one paying for it, that's why I'm poor, pre taxes I'd be a King.>>4258491Just looked through, best I can find is from the US ... might be worth it if I pay half for the camera but "just" 50€ for shipping. I just don't how it's going to arrive though, might be sitting on a brick if it arrives in a bad shape.
>>4258520> I'm the one paying for it, that's why I'm poor, pre taxes I'd be a King.yeah sure
>>4258544with a marginal tax rate of 42% in direct taxation (and many indirect taxes like 19% on everything you purchase) he's not wrong. also the "free" health care is a good chunk of his pay check because it's not really free except for when you're on welfare
>>4258554This is what the ancaps believe.You would spend much more if those things were private e.g. USAEuropean socialist countries have a much higher average standard of living than anywhere else.

Can someone familiar with Sony cameras advise whether this screen will be easy to fix? Tutorials online suggest that I can peel off the screen protector and put a new one on. Or is it fucked?
>>4258713If it works, who cares? You're gonna die someday, anon.
>>4258713It's the anti-glare coating on the screen, very common to happen over time, and very common with Sony specifically.Putting a screen protector on will help prevent further degradation. You could try wipe it off completely too, but then you lose the anti-glare aspect. If it were mine, I'd honestly just keep using as-is until it got much worse.
>>4258718>>4258719Thanks both. It's for a gift, so ideally would like to give it in a better state.
>>4258722>giftThat may be a little different. You could look for one being sold for parts and replace it easily enough, I imagine. It's likely just a ribbon cable.
>>4258722it's easy to replace, dpreview threads have recommendations and photo guides of replacement. Seems idiot proof and affordable upgrade to the crappy layer Sony used in a bunch of their cameras.
>>4258713Try peeling it off, it does look like default sony plastic screen protector aging.
Should I buy Sony 100-400mm gm lens?
I use a small body crop sensor for pinhole I carry in a pant pocket. Would I really gain that much image quality or low light capability by moving to a full frame and be forced to wear cargo pants for it? I only care about features relevant to pinhole.
I want to get gud at studio shooting. I only have 1 umbrella soft box and 2 strip box style soft boxes, 1 decent studio flags, 3 cheap flashes. What should I get next?
>>4259130*studio flash, which is the AD 600 Pro
The Sony 12-24mm lens looks amazing. I'll have to rent it and try it out. Maybe when the GM2 comes out I'll get one.
So Sonys making a proper 3 layer sensor. 42mp. I'm wondering what it would mean for the A7siv. The iii already uses a 48mp quad filter array in 12mp mode. I think in 2019 there was researching showing quantum dots being used for multi layer filtration so I think that's how they're doing it. They can probably squeeze 0.5-1 stops of better snr out of their traditional sensor tech, and gain an additional 1.5 stops from capturing all visible light instead of rejecting 2/3rds of it. An A7siv with improved noise would be mental
>>4260149>sony is making foveon>somehow manages to have the same awful colors you can’t edit out without doing illuminant specific LUTs>still vignettes 3 stops with $1500 primes>still eats stars and writes vignetting correction to raws>still shoots at 6fps except with lossy compressed raw>still dies in the rain
>>4260163Still buying a Sony despite your claims when it's time for me to upgrade
>>4260149>sony makes an interesting sensorThey will give it to Sigma and release no E-mount cameras with that sensor, of course.
>>4260149Is there any reliable info on whether this is really a foveon-type and not simply a bayer-type layout?In this press release "3-layer cmos" means something entirely different (but it's from 2017) https://www.sony.com/en/SonyInfo/News/Press/201702/17-013E/I am more inclined to believe it's just a very high res bayer sensor
>>4259913Good>>4259918Im buying it anyways
>>4260251No you aren't
>>4260229https://petapixel.com/2022/02/10/a-new-image-sensor-using-quantum-dots-could-replace-cmos/It's not a foven type It's a quantum dot type. Well assuming I'm right, but quantum dot vertically stacked sensor isn't foveon. Another interesting thing is tunable quantum dots have had research into them.. so you could have a sensor with custom frequency maps.. you could have a b&w bayer sensor with QD that you can turn back to colour. Whether it's 3 layer (or 4 layer like superia 4th layer shiz) or bayer you could tune RGB to IR/R/G instead like ektachtome infrared. Though sony is charging 150 for custom grid lines. Who knows what they'd charge for that feature. That also means you could turn frequency of the dots to thin narrow bands for astro. You could also tune them to cut certain frequencies out better than a redhancing filter etc. That's a way off, I'd say it's just normal fixed QD.
I upgraded from my canon apsc dslr to the r6mii and bought the rf 24-70 f2.8 to boot. What am I in for? Anyone else got this set up?Really looking forward to stuff like dual sd card slots, IBIS, full frame, finally having a fast zoom lens. Also has anyone tried the R7? Thinking of buying it as a back up body when I get a second lens for wildlife, which I'm still using my old aps-c for.As for what photography I do, I do portraits, events, landscapes and wildlife. Travel photography too. I've been thinking of taking up real estate photography as a side gig, do you think 24mm on a full frame is enough for the wide end or should I get a wide prime lens?
I dunno wtf is happening but it's interesting. Viltrox really hit it out of the park this year with some excellent lenses. Now we got yongnuo announcing new lenses (though they already did AF to soem extent), but also 7artisans and Brightin Star announcing they'll be making an AF lens too.
I've only used a Tiffen 3-stop ND.What are good brands? I've been eyeing a Breakthrough 10-stop filter but 10 may be too many stops. I wish I could rent a couple to try out.I've used em for daytime / golden hour long exposure.Gib tips.
I am buying this so I can finally be "based."[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Camera SoftwareAndroid TP1A.220624.014.G991USQS9EWK1Image-Specific Properties:Image Width1080Image Height1238

>>4260483I have K&F NanoX ND8 which is excellent and a Neewer ND8-ND128 also excellent. The Neewer filters actually seem really good. I just got a 1/4 black diffusion filter from Neewer, just waiting to try it out outside of my room
>>4260483>>4260521To add to this.. how many more stops of exposure do you want during those hours when using and ND8 (3 stop)? That'll tell you which ND to get.
>>4260502>They say you should spend at least 3x on your lens as your body.i sure hope not, the most expensive lens i've bought so far is 150€
