I never really go to concerts but i think i'll start going to cheaper shows. So many interesting possible photos and not a bad place to have some fun.

if you don't have a purpose then you shouldn't even bother

if you're a photographer, camera up in the air and don't make eye contact

festivals with scanners or shows with photo passes you should be careful

It's a video camera. You might think it was made for taking pictures, since it resembles a "normal photo camera" more than a video camera. But it's not.

I got a 600D and a GH4, and the 600D definitely superior to the GH4 in terms of taking pictures, although the model several years older much cheaper. And that's because the GH4, like your Sony, is a video camera and not a photo camera, like my Canon.

Don't be sad though. It may not be as good as a dedicated photo camera, but that doesn't mean it's shit. It's still a very capable photo camera. And it records stunning video, something I'm sure you will appreciate more than you might think right now.

Still, you might be able to increase the quality of your photos. Do you shoot in RAW?

If you're serious about getting into photography though I'd suggest returning it and get a Canon or a Nikon.
>>
>>2830862
Don't listen to this person.

You do need to shoot RAW, and learn to process the RAW images.

Getting a canon or a nikon wont make you take better photos. The a7ii is a great camera, and will out perform any of the canon or nikon cameras at the same price point.

If you have questions about a new camera, what lenses to buy and anything related to gear or wondering about getting into photography, post it in this thread.

Do not attempt to make a new thread for your new Rabal, broken glass and being new.
No pointless (brand) arguments and dickwaving allowed! You have been warned!

I repeat, ANYTHING GEAR RELATED goes in here!

And don't forget, be polite!

Ever tripod with that basic design is good for stills. Those in your link are overpriced though.

For that same cost you could get a 159cm tripod made of carbon fiber.

I'm not sure but the person on the photograph is most likely Reinhard Seiler: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reinhard_Seiler
The markings on the airplane identify him as the gruppenkommodor of III gruppe of JG54, the airplane itself is most likely a 109f2 (notice transparent glass under canopy frame, JG54 was later equipped with G2s that had armor plate there instead). Reinhard Seiler was commander if III/jg52 for most of the time they flew f2s (could be also Arnold Lignitz who was shot down in Sept '41, most likely also in a F2).

1DXII looks really good, but then there's this:
> 4K recording uses a slight crop of the full-frame sensor to capture video with a perfect 1:1 pixel sampling rate (26.9 x 14.2mm sensor crop), which helps to nearly eliminate moiré and aliasing issues that crop up with some down-sampling processes
4K 60FPS is nice and all, but that's pretty much a Super 35. Might as well get the GH4 or A6300 which also include a flat LOG profile for shooting video.

>>2830482
>>2830700
Also forgot this
>4K video and uses an MJPEG compression in an MOV container to create the files. Internally, the 4K video at 60p has an impressive 800 Mbps bit rate, while 24/30p have a 500 Mbps bit rate, ensuring sharp footage with minimal artifacting
You're gonna need tons of expensive CFAST cards for that high bitrate shooting.

>Want a portable and discreet setup (cheap also)

aka /ppg/ aka how do I achieve this look aka how did he do it aka what presets do I need for my snaps to resemble this one aka I can't be bothered to try shit for myself

as anons suggested here's a thread where to ask about how to "get that look" in post, since people are obviously interested in it but having these threads around steals space from more meaningful things like pictures being posted, or sony shilling
obviously the purpose of this is to get better and learn from this so you can stop being told how to do stuff and we can stop spending time telling you

to get the look in pic related, which I found on google and have no idea who it belongs to, you need to
reduce contrast
reduce saturation a bit
make everything yellower, use curves or apply a mask or however you prefer
make the blues/light blues greener by using the hue slider
apply a lot of grain

Glad it helped. Looks like you're onto it. I suspect the style looks better with high-key pictures, though. I always avoid Photoshop, stick with the tools that are available in Camera Raw. That way I only have to keep the .dng's and can undo.
> made an adjustment layer for skin, pushed it warmer and more uniform, took brightness and saturation down slightly
I think you could do this with HSL
>it looks like he tries to make the the skin or clothes match elements of the background, tone-wise.
Hmmm. Interesting. Earth tones as well.

Looking at the pictures again, I think you should go back and resaturate, mess around with cross-processing a little bit until you're able to get more earth tones. Maybe use split toning to put a little gold in the midtones and navy in the shadows. Then use hue in HSL to move the colors around. The colors aren't THAT desaturated in those pictures, more flat and crushed on both ends.

And bust up shadows. What should be black in that photo is more dark gray. Sure, that washed out look is good in some cases, but it can be way overdone. Especially by hipsters. Not saying it's bad in that particular photo though.

In the past twelve years that I've pursued this hobby, I've watched EVF's progress from laggy, battery-sucking, low-resolution, nigh useless pieces of shit into the crisp and refined EVF's we have today.

In your opinion, will analog ever be completely killed by electronic? Not just in viewfinders, but in other aspects as well such as buttons vs touch screens, smarter meter/AF programming vs manual adjustmensts, or crisp high-ISO settings reducing the need for fast glass.

I'm asking this in the context of mainstream, for-profit, professional photography, since analog tech and older style gear will likely always be used in some capacity in certain niches.

Only if you're shooting with a rangefinder. If somebody blinks the exact moment you take the shot using a SLR you won't see it.
>>
>>2830813
Even with an SLR you know when people blink. If you are that paranoid about it then use a rangefinder. In my experience photographing you know when they blink. If they are adults they will even tell you. When photographing kids you can just wait for them to blink then take the photo. With kids you just have to take a bunch of photos anyway because they are so erratic. Looking at my family photos this is a 1 in a 100 chance and you know each one so you just take a second picture. Never had a picture ruined by blinking that I didn't know they blinked.

My niece closes her eyes after the flash. It was cute so I wanted to take a picture of her reaction. The image is captured so fast that I had to preflash, then wait for her to react then take the picture. Flash was too fast to take a regular flash picture with her reaction.

But this has nothing to do with ovf vs. evf.
>>
>>2830839
People who think EVFs are better than OVFs think that you don't know whether people blinked with OVFs. I'm just disagreeing with that.

>>2830842
Agreed. The only advantage of evf is exposure preview.

Film General Thread, aka FGT.
>just posting in the FGT doesn't make you gay, unless you shoot foma
This is the thread for all of your stupid film questions, and to post your film snapshits without flushing them down the RPToilet.
It's OK to ask about film gear in this thread.
>this week's OP was brought to you by shooting the last frames on a bulk loaded roll of pic related; the fogging at both ends is really starting to piss me off...

Better scanning
Probably a slide film with dye clouds rather than distinct grains
Down-sizing correctly
A good lens
A high detail film (not a relatively high ISO film like Superia 200)
>>
>>2830748
What do you mean by down-sizing? It's a fixed lens camera so it's either the film/scanning I guess?

As in the shot you posted is 400px high.
My fucking brick Nokia makes crisp photos at that kind of resolution. Pic related.
The samples you posted are perfectly sharp except for the first one, and Superia 200 is an excellent colour film capable of plenty of resolution, the problem is just that lab scans are garbage.
That said, the 400px sample looks pretty much exactly the same as a lab scan, if you resize yours they'll probably look the same.

not from the quality, but from the aesthetics it could easily be a picture from the Cape Cod series

Here's a slightly higher-res one which was shot wide open. It's probably the shit lab I guess?

My shots are fine but I'm just wondering how I can achieve the superior sharpness/contrast of these images. What colour film would recommend?

Thanks! I was really happy with how this shot came out. I have a couple more from that set, but this one is definitely my favorite. The others are still cool, but have a very black sky and why not.

No, that is objectively a really shitty picture

Buying a camera for its sensor is like buying a car for its motor

Nobody except you and people who have done the same will give a shit, what's important is when and with whom you used it to fulfill your vision

Think back, think back to that one picture you took, maybe you didn't even particularly care about photography back then, maybe you took a noisy ass picture on a sony ericsson flip phone.

Now, would the picture be cleaner on a Sony A7sII at 128.000 ISO? Could you have counted all the pixels in the light that lit up in her eyes if you would have shot it with a D810? Would it be a little less blurry if your lens had a red ring and IS? Would it be more easily readable if his face was in the upper half and the dominant eye lined up with the middle?

Yes, yes to all of them.

But, in the end, does it even really matter? Do these features, do photographic rules really enhance the existence you captured?

"Photography is a secondary thing, because actual objects are true and photography is a lie and a merely a copy of reality. Existence comes first. So you don’t have to make a big deal about photography."

oh really wow how did you figure that out
enlighten me

how can i get this tripod to hold a studio light head? i looked on amazon and they all just have that small thread that'll fit the bottom of a camera or flash. Is there a simple adapter? Thanks!
>>
gear thread, thanks!
>>
manfrotto spigot adapter

I don't want to discourage you from experimenting, I just want to lay on some facts about this.

Unless your studio light is really underpowered, that tripod isn't going to hold these very well. Monoblocs are heavy and this thing will sway a lot.

Unless you want to use your monobloc as a kicker or backlight, this isn't going to be as useful as you might think. It's better to just buy a really cheap lightstand that can support the weight of your gear you intend to use. If it breaks, you can save up and buy a better one, if it doesn't break you can use it until it does. Win/win.
