Just got a Minolta Dimage Dual III film scanner and I noticed the exposure is very uneven, especially noticeable when the film is underexposed and the scanner needs to push.
Does anyone know what could cause this, and if I could fix it? The scanner is pretty easy to screw open.
Is the light source broken, is there something wrong with the sensor, a mechanical issue etc. ?

In all honesty, it's probably working just as well as it always has.

Ok. So I got the general idea of active (laser) and passive autofocus (contrast and phase detection) but I want to know

How the f* does the actual lense work? I mean there are lenses out there that doesnt have a build in motor and ones that have one. On of my lenses says it doesn't have a build in Motor (Pentax SMC DA 18-55mm) but how can autofocus even work than?
>>
>>3245579
either the lens has a motor or the body has one and fuels the lens mechanics. for example your pentax lens has autofocus per screw drive.
>>
>>3245579
You know that whirring noise? That's a screw adjusting the lens to the right place for the focal point.
>>
>>3245579
>lense

LENS
>>
If you take the lens off the camera and turn the focus ring while looking at mount, you'll see what looks like a mini slotted screw head spinning around. That screw is connected to the focusing ring by an internal gear. On the body you'll see the "screwdriver" that turns it to auto focus.

That's how screw drive focusing works on many Pentax lenses. The newest Pentax lenses have their own built in motors though, and they're controlled by the two electrical contacts recessed in your camera mount on the bottom right.

>Cameras tend to die from use, not from time.
Wearing out the moving parts is definitely an issue, but there are also a lot of ways that a camera can die from disuse. Notably:
1. If the batteries are left inside, they can leak corrosion everywhere
2. Lubricants in the shutter or aperture can get gummed up
3. Fungus can develop

Lets have a /thrift/ thread!

The thread for the treasure hunters and budget photographers!
Share your stories, tips, advice and finds!


>Garage sales are usually a treasure trove
Websites like gumtree and local classifieds are usually a good place to find bargains, but if you're willing to dig a little more looking at garage sales that have "a bunch of cameras" or "camera stuff" in the description usually means that the seller doesn't know much about the equipment and you'll often find something handy like a camera bag or tripod.

>Deceased Estates
Another good place for those in the lookout for an antique piece of kit. Usually a third party auctions off the products so its worth knowing what company does the auctioning, asking the real estate agent is usually a good start.

>Community Stereotypes
There are alot of Asians where I live, and for some reason they love photography. I periodically check the local second hand stores in the area for a decent bargain, while a few are savvy with product knowledge and will charge accordingly, things like filters and polarizers are a bit more a gray area and be snapped up for $10 - $30.

Started thrifting a little less than a year ago

Top 2 fun touches $6 each
lite touch was $5
Nikomat SLR body was $10
Minolta daul weathermatic was $10


a local camera store cruises all the thriftstores too, so i gotta compete against them.
>>
Saw a Konica Autoreflex T3 + 50mm f1.4 for 150 Norwegian kroner (~$19) at a thrift store today.

Didn't end up buying it because the shutter was kinda slow and the lens seemed to be missing the rubberized focus ring.

Alberto, did you use a diffuser? Or is it a pane of glass that give this additional light in the shadows of her face?

Another pro-tip I haven't given is to use a macro lens (or Zeiss/Leica/whatever übersharp glass) when you want to shoot wide open.

Wow what the fuck happened to her eyes?
But you did okay. Just watch that balance, you're erring on the warm side, which is fine, but keep an eye on it before you get used to "everything is warm" and you go overboard.

Also tilted photo is tilted, that's the only big issue, rotate to the right and it's goo.
Softness isn't too bad, I mean it's horrible, but it looks okay for a portrait.

>>3246558
>Another pro-tip I haven't given is to use a macro lens (or Zeiss/Leica/whatever übersharp glass) when you want to shoot wide open.

Bullshit, sharp glass doesn't have to be macro orr german. Sigma Art lenses are tack sharp wide open, for example, and so is modern fast glass in general.

As anon said, edit that cancer between her tits before bothering about that, though. Also lighting is much more important - look at her eyes, should have got some light there.

By the way I do use a macro lens for portraits, but it's just because I got it for cheap, there's nothing special about macro lenses - they're just meant to be sharper when stopped down and to focus really close, you'll find equally sharp tele lenses that aren't macro, they'll just suffer more from diffraction at f/16 or something, usually.

Been using this but want something bigger (27-30") and brighter.

IPS panels are good, PVA are better, TN is garbage. Anything 4k, repurposed TV screens, garbage. Dell ultrasharps are the best bang for the buck. Buy one used on eBay for dirt cheap, even 10 year old ones will be perfect for photo editing.

Asus MG279Q, 27" 2560x1440
It's a gaming 144hz screen, but with the evolution of panels in time we're seeing colour accurate displays that can do gaming too. This one is an IPS-style AHVA panel, 100% sRGB and super low response times and input lag.

I was unsure between this one or a BenQ SW2700PT 10 bit 100% Adobe RGB panel, but this one was cheaper and I just didn't need Adobe RGB, while I do make use of the 144hz this screen provides - not just gaming, it makes general computer use so much more relaxing on the eyes, including menu navigation which is what you do a lot when editing photos.

Only real downside is that Asus means panel lottery, it can be good, it can be horrible. Mine has a bright spot in the bottom right which can get noticeable if you stand far from the screen, but apart from that I got a good one.

If you want a dedicated editing screen, this is as good as it gets before dumping stupid amounts of money into it. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/benq-sw2700pt-27-inch-qhd-professional-monitor,4374.html
>>
>>3247796
Oh and whatever you do, do not buy a 1080p screen above 24", it's just not enough. And good, colour accurate 4k screens can be found for reasonable prices, but forget any gaming on those if that's your idea - they always hide obscene input lag and response times.

I’m just starting feel free to rip my shitty skills apart

>How is it still fashion photography when they aren't wearing any clothes?
Shut the fuck up, man, we've got a pretty sweet deal going here.

>Also what is the best focal length for fashion photography (35mm equiv)
The standard is a portrait length of some sort, so 85 to 200 or so. But there's no "best" focal length since it's an artistic/creative choice--you can take great fashion photos with an ultrawide and you can take great fashion photos with a supertele and you can take great fashion photos with a normal, it all depends on what you're looking for with your photo.

Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films or other work you've done is encouraged.

We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

How do I calculate depth of field, in portraiture, when I don't know the subject distance, but I do know the subject's height in the frame? See: Pic related as an example of what I'm talking about.

I'm curious what the difference in depth of field is between something like a 56mm f/1.2 lens and a 90mm f/2 in such a situation, on APSC sensor. Obviously, the 90mm will create more background compression, which will blur the background despite actual depth of field, but I wonder if the depth of field would also be thinner with the longer lens, or if it would have a deeper depth of field and more background blur?
