Who's dexter? can you give me some info on that light?

Can anyone reccomend any resources like Youtube channels, videos, reading material etc, for photography in regards to composition and as an art form itself?

I feel like 00% of the material out there is from a technical or gear point of view, and I'm more interested in learning about composition or using photography as a vehicle for other ideas

Ever since he's started gearfagging and using clickbait titles his channel has gone downhill but maybe his earlier stuff is still worth checking out.

I would actually recommend film/cinema oriented channels that do breakdowns of shots, especially from earlier 20th century movies. They had an extremely strong emphasis on composition and the lack of grip/movement technology meant a lot more static/photographic scenes. You'll also get the benefit of learning about cinematic lighting which was (imo) utilized more by great photographers in the 20th century than it is by photographers nowadays.

Every Frame a Painting is a decent channel to start, easy to digest then maybe dig into the recommendations from there.

Is there such thing as “the right gear will get you going”? I have a Nikon D90 that i almost never used. Recently i bumped into /p/ and got obsessed with photography again, i’ve been browsing a lot of great photos and cool gears, fantasizing about going places with my dream camera, while NOT using my D90 to go out taking pictures. Recently i found moral justification that “my camera is too big, and i want smaller mirrorless”. My DSLR just doesn’t make me want to hold it and go out. A lot of cameras makes me want to buy them and hold them and go outside taking pictures but is there such thing as “the right camera will actually get you really shooting”? Or is this just another consumerism? I really like G85 and GX85, will i actually go somewhere to take pictures if i buy one of them?

I've older cybershot, and I can confirm boot time. It is at least four seconds. Everything else except cross and circular dial still works though. That one is giving me problems.

>>
>>3202670
>You are dumb
It depends on whether or not his interest in the ZS100 is heavily reliant on its zoom range. If he wants a compact camera with good image quality, the mirrorless with a prime pancake will give better image quality. If he wants a compact with a long zoom range and is willing to sacrifice image quality for that, then yeah, the ZS100 is the way to go.

I was upfront in my size response that the "not that much smaller" was with the caveat of using a pancake lens. It's not like I don't realize that a larger zoom range lens is going to make the whole thing a lot bigger, it's just not something that I personally prioritize and so the possibility exists that the Op doesn't prioritize that either.

My x-t2 is much more enjoyable than my old a7r. Ergo of Fuji is in a different league, the evf works much better and everything is so quick and easy.

It took forever to adjust any settings on my sony as the menus and dials are absolutely all out of place as I constantly wander between the fn buttons, menus and dials. And editing the xboxhuge raws that take half an hour to load was an absolute joke which definitely caused me to sell just a couple of months after getting it. And forking out $2000 for a decent lens that is the size of an elephant was painful.

My Nikon COOLPIX W100 is much more enjoyable than my old sony a7Riii. Ergo of Nikon is in a different league, integrated flash works much better and everything is so quick and easy. It's even waterproofed to 10 meters depth, sony would shit its pants and die just by going closer than 10 meters to any open water.

I was forever having to go through the retarded menus and unmarked dials are a fucking nightmare that get knocked around and every half hour I look through the evf at pure white or black. And editing the raws was an absolute joke which definitely caused me to sell just a couple of months after getting it. And forking out $5000 for some of the worst lenses I've ever used was painful.

I shoot with a A7Rii I love it, I owned fuji's loved them as well.. I ended up selling the fuji gear because i couldn't justify the price point for the glass and body's anymore on a crop system. invested the money back into sony glass.. for me i'm a lot more happy knowing I have a FF system with a pretty much future proof mount.. Both systems are great I even picked up a X100F just to have the fuji thing again.. But in all honesty investing that kinda money into a crop system seems pretty retarded. X100 line is where Fuji shines.

Just to mess around with. I was thinking about getting a Voigtlander lens for digital use but if you look at the bodies you can get attached to them, they seem worth picking up.

Bessa R: $150 after lens value
Bessa R3M: $450 after lens value

Am I crazy to consider spending more, even though the R3M seems like a much better deal/buy/value? I don't want to tie up the cost of a cheap car in a Leica to sit on the shelf, but if I can change my mind later and resell a film body and keep the lens I wanted in the first place this doesn't seem like a bad idea.

Polarizing issue I'm sure. I'm choosing one of these now I think because I cannot find a small interchangeable-lens camera that I like, and considering this is going to be used for hiking and vacation, I need a small (and importantly FLAT) camera that I can put in a jacket pocket and not around my neck like a dork.

The Fuji is a little newer and the lack of GR III release worries me (like it will come out right after I buy GR II).

The Fuji also looks better made, nicer to handle. That being said, I returned a Fuji recently because the dials seemed frivolous. Example: if you want to shoot at 1/800, you need to choose 1/640 on the dial, then roll up to 1/800. Want to switch to 1/1000? You can't just roll the wheel to 1/1000, you need to go back to the dial. Etc. So is it just flashy shit?

I'm not sure the GR II's thin-ness and shutter cover matter when so many people complain about dust - like I wonder if I'd be tempted to keep it in a little bag or baby it or something.

For a camera like this, I am 100% not going to use Lightroom etc. "Fuji colors" out of camera is a thing but Ricoh colors look better to me in examples. And I admit I thought the Fuji on camera editing was a cool idea until I saw how there is NO preview of what you're doing - Ricoh on camera RAW to JPG actually has sliders and looks like a neat way to fix a shadow before sending to someone via phone.

Anyway the GR II seems more well regarded, especially here.

Pretend like the $100 cost difference doesn't matter.

Ricoh has been making a GR in some form or another for 20 years.

confirmed for never touching one.
>>
>>3204435
The Coolpix A was launched a month earlier than the GR APS-C. The launch of the GR K.O-ed the A as the GR was close to half the price/300$ cheaper.

yeah, i didnt mean the talking-bout-composition thing sound like this - i just wish he would turn the camera from his face while talking about that and shown it from a different perspective rather than just talk and then smash you with the photo
