Should I buy a camera or a smartphone?
Budget'd be about 300€ for the camera with some leeway and I don't mind buying a used camera of a more expensive model.
Mostly I wanted to take pictures of my dog when I'm outside that don't look like ass and I want a hobby that'd take me out more. There's some nature and fields by here, and the city over has hundreds years old building and I've holidays planned in the mountains, I guess I'd have stuff to make pictures of. I'm kinda worried it'd be something I dump some money in and then not touch for a while, but I don't know, photography looks real interesting. I don't intend to make money out of it or anything.
Any books you'd recommend that aren't on the wiki, or some that are on the list and better than the others?

Pic related is what my current phone manages. This is an unedited, not resized picture, and yes, it comes out blue if I take the picture too soon after opening the camera app.

A camera. You already know what a smartphone will be like, more or less. A camera will give you the opportunity to figure out if you want this as an intricate hobby. Buy used.
>>
I looked around some, the D60 and Rebel line do look interesting. The D3200 and A5000 (I assume that's what you meant, the A6000 even used is way out of my price range it seems) are not too expensive either. I'm not too hot on what are the differences between those two "tiers" and how important the differences are though (much less between the two pairs I named), or if it'd really matter to me within even months if I stuck to photography.
That's maybe more for the gear thread now, sorry. Thanks for the help regardless. Shame there isn't a dedicated store in my area and the generic high-tech shops don't have older/used models.

worst things you have done to your gear ... be honest

my last shoot I had a bunch of fucking dust on my sensor and didn't remember a lens cloth or swabs. So I fogged it with my breath and used the corner of my shirt. cleaned up pretty well and didn't have a shit ton of dust to healbrush out in post.

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.

Field Theory is the basis of photography; so you must know it well.

I'd start with classical mechanics. Get to using field and lagrangian terminology and notation early, as it will be help solidify you understanding while still working with tangible manifestations. Then, as I'm sure you've guessed, you should move onto Electromagnetism. I differ from most people insofar as I think you should incorporate relativity into these two past subjects before going onto quantum.

Next is the obvious move to quantum. Focus on hilbert spaces and operators, as again, understanding these now will be paramount to your mastering of higher material. You can then start working on the basics of path intergrals which inevitably leads you to general relativity.

Once you've mastered these topics you can buy your first camera.

Who are everyone's favourite photographers and why?

Me. Because I get to go out and take the pictures instead of fapping over someone else's shit.

For fucks sake it's always good to look at other peoples work and learn from it but as soon as you start isolating "favourites" and hero worshiping other photographers you diminish yourself and become nothing more than a trite fanboi.

But he literally doesn't

Any tips on quick and accurate manual focusing? I can do it on my Mirrorless no problem due to focus peaking, but I got an old film SLR and it is a bit harder to do especially when there isn't super good lighting or something is kinda far away or moving. I do have a focusing screen on the SLR.

It’s a medium format camera where f/32 is super common. You can get f/32 on modern telephoto though.

>>3244204
And in addition, f/64 is semi-common in medium format too. In large format f/64 is common and necessary. Depends on the size of the sensor or film negative.

Joby 3k is less than $100 USD and holds up my D810 and 14-24 which together are in the 4-5 pound (8-10 kilogram) range. Just be careful how you situate it because it's not hard for it to lose balance and drop your camera. I would have gotten the 5k with its 11 lb/22kg limit but it costs as much as a decent standard tripod and I don't use the Joby enough to justify that much for it.
>>
>>3245204

<4-5 pound (8-10 kilogram) range

2-3kg
>>
Even if it's supposed to be the real deal, the Joby SLR-zoom is absolute dogshit. Used it just a few times and after a few months it was broken already.
With just the slightest bit of too much pressure when moving the legs one of the ball joints can pop out, cracking the plastic cup. After this the joint has no resistance any more, making part of the leg unusable to bear any load.
Won't ever get a Joby or any knockoff again.

Got a Sirui T005X for the same price later which I'm extremely satisfied with. Not significantly larger and a lot more versatile and quick to use. Surprisingly well-built for the price too (unlike the Joby, which is a ludicrously overpriced plastic piece of crap).
