Hi /p/, I took semi-nude and nude photos of a girl for her portfolio. I'm a bit worried that she's 13, but her physique is like a 19 year old. I'm quite reluctant to give the raws to her since she plans on releasing it to the net, and someone might sue me that for cp possibly by her (she didn't tell them) parents. I don't want a dime to get wasted just for this shit. If I don't give the raws to her, then I'm willing to give back the money she paid to me, /p/. This is a bit /adv/, but I think I'll get more inputs in here.

Next time you're making business, make sure you do it in person with a witness and preferaly an audio recording to prevent situations like this from happening again.
>>
sexual positions < shadow art =/= porn
nude art > nude =/= porn

But fuck that, it depends on the person looking at the photo really. You just happen to live in a country with the strictest child laws in the world, it's better to murder a drug-lord than take a nude art of a 13 year old, OP.

Did you document both facts? If so, I highly doubt there would be any grounds to sue. If not, then find the nearest volcano and document everything and get your clients to start signing contracts.

IMO, the right type of noise can improve the photo.

The best noise ever comes from films.

Second place, in my opinion are the CCD sensors, they have a very beautiful artistic noise.

CMOS noise is just ugly. I don't like it at all.

What is your opinion?

>>2659882

You have no idea how a CCD or a CMOS sensor works.

There is no such thing as 'high quality noise,' just noise.
>>
>>2659883
there is luminance noise and color noise. 'bad quality' noise is high in color relative to luminance. in addition, some cameras have color shifts towards magenta or green when the noise level becomes too high. I'm not a scientist, but it's obvious that some cameras look different when pushed. personally I'm an advocate of avoiding noise entirely when possible.

Giving the customer features at base level that Canikony only gives on high-end models.
Better compatibility for older lenses.
Don't have to pay extra for features.
Astrotracer, basically compact deep sky astrophotoraphy at low budget.
Weather sealing.
Basically these are cameras designed primarily for people who go outside and on hikes into nature. It's not something the average /p/ dweller does.

Photographers,

Help me pick out a point & shoot, please!

I am thinking about getting either a Lumix zs20/30 or a Nikon s9700/9900

Which has best photo quality and would be good for night shots, macro as well as regular daily use?

I know MP and zoom don't really matter as much as megapixel density and sensor size vs lens area, but I do not know cameras all that well.

Any advice greatly appreciated!

an underrated one is the fuji xf1. It has a really neat style, great out of camera jpegs, and good ergonomics, and also pretty cheap (can get under 200) and a 2/3 inch sensor. Probs the most reccommended is an rx100 variant, either the rx100 or rx100 mark 3. Both have larger than average sensors, with the mark 3 having a viewfinder and a better aperture range, so you can keep your iso lower.

hey buddy i have a nikon coolpix s9700, let me give you a review

>Which has best photo quality and would be good for night shots, macro as well as regular daily use?

night shots, the s9700 is right out. you're limited to using a pretty low ISO, which is understandable. it fits in your pocket, what do you really expect out of it. photo quality, passable. it's not the sharpest camera. in some ways that makes it a great learner camera. you really have to adapt to your subjects to optimize shutter speed. as i like animals this means working hard to get the pictures on their terms, because the camera is unforgiving.

if you like doing macro i think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the s9700. i'm pretty happy for how much it costs and weighs. i love insects and it does a good job of capturing some good photos. only gets down to F/3.7 but whatever. you get up in some beetle's grill and it can take a good picture.

regular daily use is no problem. this camera performs well enough in plentiful light.

>I know MP and zoom don't really matter as much as megapixel density and sensor size vs lens area, but I do not know cameras all that well.

yeah and i'm learning too. you get the sense that they shoehorned 30x optical zoom into a package that can't really use it, but whatever. for very short, to medium-long distances, you can get performance out of this camera. its really taught me to work with the animals to get the best out of them. very easy camera to use. it's my first camera and overall i'm glad i bought it.

that being said i'm ready to upgrade to a DSLR with a badass long telephoto lens. this camera can't do birds.

Get a cheap DSLR with kit lens, or travel zoom lens.
Put it in Auto mode and shoot JPEG
Now you have a point and shoot.

Hi /p/

I read the sticky and it didn't have anything on advice, so apologies in advance if this post isn't allowed.

I currently have a 40D with a 70-200mm lens (not sure about anything more specific) I'm looking for a smaller lens and a tripod to shoot long exposure shots and close up nature shots. I wanted to know what I could get for the cheapest price, if buying cheap gear is even possible.

Ebay have Tripods for $20, but is there a major difference between a cheap chinese tripod, and an expensive store bought one?

I've been recommended a 50mm lens as a basic guideline for closeup shots

cheap ones break on you easily and are heavy.
when they break on you, they break your camera and lens...also don't hold your camera still (resisting vibrations/actually holding your camera in place and not drooping the lens)

The cheapest I'd say go is a brand like Vanguard.
>>
>>2660022
yeah that makes a lot of sense, thanks man I'll look into it.

would the max height of the tripod be an issue?
should I be going for taller tripods?
>>
>>2660024
A good midlevel tripod can be set up pretty short.
>>
>>2660018
Everyone I know that bought a cheap tripod regretted it, including me. >>2660022 is totally light, they are unstable and unreliable.
That's one of the cases where you would just end up buying a midlevel one anyways, so I'd just skip the cheap version.

I am well aware there are many ways to make a 35mm f/1.4, Captain Obvious.

But why does Sony choose to make optical formulas for mirrorless that end up being larger than DSLR equivalents?

>70-200 equivalent lenses f/4 vs f/2.8
You do realize the canon 70-200/2.8 is soft as hell wide open and doesn't get better until it is stopped down to f/4?
That f/4 is a decision for IQ, not for gearfagging. Many other manufacturers are doing the same, like Pentax with the 60-250 or Olympus with it's 80-300 equivalent.
Even Chase Jarvis decided to use the f/4 L for his canons on trips because advantage in weight and useful range.
Buying the f/2.8 over the f/4 other than journalism is just dickwagging when you would use the f/2.8 over f/4 anyway.
Also Sony doesn't chose about optical formulas or produce optics. they are a consumer electronics manufacturer. They buy the lenses from others like Zeiss, Tokina or whatever.
