Hey, I'm looking at buying this used 55-210 that has some fungus on the front and rear elements (pic related).

What I'm asking is:
1. Is it safe to keep with my other lens that are clean? Or, if not:

2. Is it safe to keep with my other lens that are clean inside a dry cabinet?

3. Or perhaps it's a risk and I should just skip it?

>>
>>3003472
> 1. Is it safe to keep with my other lens that are clean?
Identify the fungus and reason why it spread in the lens... or just assume that no.

> 2. Is it safe to keep with my other lens that are clean inside a dry cabinet?
Actually dry usually doesn't allow for any large fungus to grow.

>3. Or perhaps it's a risk and I should just skip it?
Either way, it's a cheap 55-210 that you'd have to disassemble and clean successfully. You're not gonna want to shoot so much fungus.

Buy a new, clean one instead if you're not confident about the disassembly and cleaning.

isi I recently got stuck in probably that part of Alabama on a ridiculous load that took me through what must have been the set of Deliverance at some point in time and I gotta say, you need to get out of Alabama there is nothing there, not a god damn thing. Buy a plane ticket with your autismbux and go see the country. The only place that's more of a shithole is Arkansas, except for the Eureka Springs area on 62 that was nice to drive through.

You just described more interesting subjects than are in Florida or any of the drive-by tourist traps you see from your rig.
I think the issue is, Sugar, you're still such a beginner that you only think in terms of trying to make "pretty" photos. Which is understandable, as its something you've never accomplished.

I don't think you even realize isi shoots with documentary undertones.

Didn't see a general thread up, and I need one.

I recently got myself an a6300.

And during the holidays I got back to my parents, with our dogs.
I wanted to record some 120fps video and follow them around.

But, the AF didn't manage to keep up.

It was a slight overcast, shot with continuous AF, center focus, f1.4, 800iso.
So it was all properly exposed and bright outside.

I've also noticed a lot of hunting when it shouldn't.

I've turned off face-recognition.

Slower than usual shutter speed, bumped up ISO, as wide as your aperture could go. Maybe 1/20s, ISO1600, and 4.0. Adjust accordingly.

I've gotten more into MF recently, and for me the problem was also that I just don't like wlf focusing much. I shoot street mostly and it feels weird and disconnected - I prefer direct eye contact with the subject and making it clear I'm taking a picture.

I got a Pentax 6x7 and I've been enjoying it a lot. That said, the ergonomics aren't great and it's pretty fucking heavy. I still haven't used my tlr once since I got it.

If I had the money, I think I'd get the Mamiya 7 (or 6 if I ever get used to squares) or the unfortunately rare Bronica RF.

Shame the options are so limited.

its all the same shit. the older ones are a bit more solid and look more interesting. don't pay more than 40 bucks for any Russian camera. Do not buy a Russian camera made to look like a Leica they never get put back together right.
>>
>>3002967

The Contax is the better camera, but the Leica has muh feels and you can be confident in the resale value.

Oh, good luck repairing the Contax when it breaks. The Leica isn't an issue to repair.

The Contax glass is better than Leica.

Why did you sell your zenit? You probably got little money and lost a piece of history doing it
>>
>>3003420
>i like old film cameras
Well you won't for much longer if you pick a Zenit or a Zorki for your first one and don't take autistic pleasure in tinkering and cleaning. Zorki aside, Zenit is a crappy camera even when it works due to the abysmal finder, poor selection of shutter speeds and reliability issues. Due to having a mirror mechanism it's also more difficult to service than a Zorki, and boy you can be damn sure you'll be servicing it sooner or later. Soviet cameras are robust in the externals only, while their mechanisms are prone to failures due to shitty materials and nonexistent quality control. It's a novelty camera that you can never rely on.

If you're new to film cameras, you pick pretty much any Japanese-made one (or Praktica if you just HAVE to have an commiebloc camera) and stick with it until you know what you're doing.
>>
If you absolutely must have a Soviet camera, spring for the FED-2. People still service them and the glass has come down in price in recent years thanks to the abysmal Russian economy.

Don't pay more than 50 dollars for a pristine copy. Don't buy one made after 1960 (or anything Soviet for that matter) and don't buy the colored ones, I'm not talking about the 1955-1957 2b which was offered in red, blue, green or gray bakelite I mean the aftermarket painted ones. Don't buy any of the Leica knockoffs. Yuri Boguslav at Fedka sells them for a much higher premium but you will be guaranteed against DOA and he cherry-picks from the Motherland (thank you Igor) and sells his cream puffs. He has been servicing and working with these cameras longer than most of us on this board have been alive, so he is a trusty source but you will pay for it, most of his FED-2's are 100-150 dollars. He's got some cool oddities on his website.

That being said I have one, serviced by him, with two lenses. Is it a fun camera? Absolutely. Don't drop it. Will you get better results from a 50-dollar Nikon EM with a Series E 50mm? God damn right you will.

Making a horror movie is the best advice I can give for amateurs. Even if it's trashy making a horror film gives you good filmmaking habits by forcing you to constantly consider the audience. Their perspective, what information they have, if the cuts flow, how to give them information, etc. It can also be super cheap to make and personal style is welcome as long as it isn't overpowering the rest of the film.

More advice is to not take it all too seriously when you're starting out. Your first work will suck and if you're holding what you made up with complete reverence being shown how shitty it is will feel like a gunshot to the chest. Learn to take criticism but, more importantly, learn how to improve. There's nothing worse than someone who keeps glaring flaws in their work because "it's my personal style."
