I have a panasonic DMC-FH24: is there any way to control the exposure time on it? it justtt seems to decide itself automatically even though ISO is a manual setting and there's an "exposure" setting, which doesn't seem to actually change the exposure time, and I have no clue what itt is doing.

i've been taking photos at a museum and generally it's too dark to get usable photos out of 100, 200, or even 400 ISO, but the times where it randomly decides to allow faster exposure times results in a photo that has both the higher fidelity of lower ISO's without being dark as fuck (pic related) so if I could find a way to manually set it or at least figure out how I can try to get it to us faster times then tthat'd be helpful

Is my understanding of shutter speed and ISO here correct?

Exposure time/Shuttter speed gives you more light at tthe cost of higher sensitivtty to movement. You can use quicker speeds to be less suscepetable to jitter, but the imaage will be darker. You can up the ISO to compensate, and increaase brighttnss, but at the cost of film grain. Low ISO and slow shutter speeds are ideal assuming a static targett and steady hands, but you need to speed up exposure to compensate for jitter or a moving target, and then ISO to compensate for darkness.

Does literally anyone actually speak, with any eloquence, about their process? Or experiences?

Since most of them are gear-shilling shysters I assume not very often, but someone who can also talk about the way their processes and perspectives have shifted over time would be boon, especially as youtube enters its adolescent years.

Anyone have any good recommendations more in that area?

I just bought this earlier this week. Haven't developed the three rolls I shot on it yet but I'm having a fun time with it. It's becoming a camera I take with me everywhere. So far my biggest issue is the autofocusing. It doesn't make any noise or have any kind of focus indicator like a rangefinder and you don't even get to see the focus change like in an slr. So I'm worried that a lot of my shots are going to be out of focus because I didn't wait long enough for the autofocus to do its work.

Who here /clean/gear/?

>Previous Thread
>>3381182

Forays into cleaning lenses, made do with warm-moist breath, fresh pack of soft q-tips, and a can of compressed air.

Wasn't sure about risking any of the microfibre cloths or glass cleaner fluid, but still noticed ever so slightly fine micro-scratches (we're talking many little ones perhaps a micrometer wide). I suppose its impossible to avoid, and it's not visible on images.

That's because there are none. How had a Tokina AT-X 400/5.6 Japan model once for $100, but the resolving power was very poor. Soft as. Awful lens.

This is a workshop for you guys to get better at critiquing other photographs. Explain which is the best and give your reasoning. The first one at the top is #1 and the last one at the bottom is #4. Good luck! I will reveal my professional analysis in a week.

#1 doesn't tell anything, but at least it's in focus
#2 muh lines muh perspective, but it doesn't tell anything and it's not even in focus
#3 while not particularly original, I like the blurry ambulance in contrast with the motionless carcass, but the deer is still out of fucking focus, and everything right of it could have been cropped out and the picture would have improved a lot. It's the best of the bunch, but not out the photographer's merit
#4 no, just no

Hello /p/, I want to try my hand on photography, though I am debating whether I should buy a digital camera especially one of the high zoom models. I had a group of people telling me that Analog photography has a level of quality that digital photography will never attain. And I'm uncertain which to get. Help me.

I'd like to point out that in actuality film has fuck-hojillions of potential photosites. Grain appears because of developer action causing development to bleed over into neighbouring silver bromide crystals. So the perceived resolution of a black and white image outstrips roughly equivalent digital (i.e. 6-8 MP for typical film) because it renders things that're beyond its practical "line pair" resolution.

That's to say: film's resolution trails off gracefully into the grain. Digital turns into pixels and moire. But digital does, in the end, deliver far more, especially per mm^2.

She's bought you a camera strap, nigs. Perhaps one that lacks practically significant features such as a rubberized side in the middle, though I wouldn't know. Also keep holding your breath on them Ultron snaps, they're just a leap of procastrinations away.

Also, did y'alls know that hanging around old photographers, fascinating as it is to hear about olden things, makes you a fuckton more of an old fogey yourself? I should shoot a punk gig to compensate or something, fucking hell.

>>3393492
She listened to me when I was talking about that strap and then got one for me. I recently passed on some Ultron, but to be honest, biddings went way too high for its condition.
It can be interesting to hang out with the old ones. Grab a flash and that Ultron and shoot some show, I bet it's going to be fun.

But people do just that. I wasn't there to took photos and I immediately saw opportunities. Observatory was ok, pretty good architecture and all, I'd say it's not easy to give it justice with parking lots full and tourists everywhere, but should be possible given time and effort. View from it is also a bit too high for quality cityscapes, but pathway towards it is from the bottom looks fantastic. Shouldn't even go that far off path, and you should get great shots.
Obviously people see things differently. When you're used to something you'll have much harder time extracting something special out of it. Was staying at Royal Pagoda Motel (avoid). Not in my wildest dreams I thought of taking a pic of it. Get home, watch La La Land, and there's a brief but fantastic scene featuring it.
Not trying to be condescending or anything, I'm guilty of doing the same, just saying that there are opportunities everywhere, we are just not taking them. LA should be no different, it's fucking huge, and seeing fantastic shots featuring it in films, it shouldn't be hard finding something unique and special on your own. I'd even say op found some of them. Editing is pretty bad, and they should be cropped to square, but I quite like a few of them.

I know exactly what kind of shots you're talking about, but I'm just saying that it's not worth a trip to LA. There are very few worthwhile shots in LA. San Diego has much better photo ops, with much less people crowding around. And the pacific coast highway is awesome as well

I don't think were on same page. Completely agree that LA is dumpster of a town. I've also heard first hand accounts of how sweat San Diego is. Then again, I think that is completely irrelevant to photography. I firmly believe that location is secondary. It gives you canvas to work with, then it's up to you to find the rays of light that show it.
I oppose locations hunting. People will try finding spots from successful previous photographs, analyse sunsets locations, and use google maps to find appealing sceneries. To a degree I understand the approach, but then I rather hunt the unpredictable.
I've seen it defined in literature, Freeman will call it chasing light. It's totally unpredictable and momentary light. Light out of the heavy overcast; when you see sun, for a brief moment come crashing from the clouds only to be engulfed a second later. Or brilliant explosion of colours you get from a solitary tree when it's back lit with a sun setting over a crest behind it. It may even be sun lost in the smog of the city midwinter, but it is there to be found. You need an eye, a friend in high place to give you luck, knowledge to do it justice when it comes, and then it will be presented to you. I take immense pleasure capturing that. I'll be on imperfect location, with trees all around me, and I'll only get a glimpse of sunrays and clouds struggling for dominance on the cliff ahead of me, but it will be unique and one of a kind, and I'll treasure that picture more than some exquisite and planned vista, and I'll look up to the future with hope of glancing it again. I do believe I've seen a promise for that in LA. Doubtful I'll ever have another opportunity to capture it, jet it is there.

Chris you seriously need to fuck off and never come back. And yes, everyone knows the last post I quoted is you as well.
