Dear /p/.

Few months ago I asked you about general advices about cosplay photography for beginner. Following your suggestions, I bought my first DSLR (Nikon D5300 with 18-105mm kit, replacing Panasonic Lumix compact) while still reading books about photography and I have few questions about two cases I still dont grasp - doing photos of marches and indoors, especially with poor light.

When looking around the internet, advices about photographing marches are mostly about photograping protests and rarely contain info about technical stuff (mostly about "catching the emotions", one even had lot of talk about hiding camera, bringing food with you and avoiding police). Cosplay walks are surely peaceful and happy. But I dont really understand what kind of settings should I use. At one hand, I would rather want some higher depth of field and thus smaller aperture but at the same time, since both cosplayers and me will be constantly walking and I wont have more than few seconds to catch a moment, I would need fast shutter speed. So, just P and let the camera do the work, while I only aim and shoot, with locked 50mm or something? Next walk is in April so I still have some time for practice but Im afraid that if I would, say, stay in city centre and just keep doing photos people walking by, I would earn punch to the face.

As for indoor shoots, cons I went recently had poor inside light - one that took part in summer had bright light coming from windows so it was less of a problem but another one took part in december, plus weather was cloudy (mentioned compact camera I had that time right away suggested ISO 1600, even with 800 it had giantic grains). I have my D5300 since last week now and only tested it at home and with one poor lightbulb and ISO 400 I could still get very sharp photo on gunpla model working as test subject but I want to learn how to do indoor photos with live models the best I can.

Thank you for any advice or help, like always!

A focusing distance, focal length, and aperture that gives a depth of field approximately the size of a human.

Have you shot 4x5? Did you enjoy it? If you stopped, why?

I want to shoot portraits with it and use movements for depth of field effects, but I'm not sure if it'd be worthwhile if I'm just shooting with window light. Don't really have room in my home setup for a bigger lighting right.

Does anybody here use micro four turds for wildlife/birds/nature photography? I've recently gotten more interested in shooting birds and wildlife, I currently use a Sony A6000 but the lens selection for birds and wildlife sucks ass and even though I use an APS-C camera I need to crop out more than half the picture with a 55-210 lens. Going with a M43 camera seems like the most logical choice because of in body stabilization and tighter crop on lenses which are much smaller than full frame or APS-C cameras.

New M43 cameras have a 20 megapickles sensor so it's hard to use the megapickles argument to argue for APS-C cameras since there really isn't much of a difference between 20 and 24 MP.

Use vintage lenses and ones from other manufacturers.

Just hop on it. It's the cheapest option by far. Both lolimpus and phatasonic offer great 300mm zooms in sub 400 range. You won't find that anywhere else, just don't kid yourself that it'll ever be as good as full frame.

you need +300mm on crop to get close enough. Probably a 400mm lens would be your best bet.

I've been trying to find a reasonably priced VHS camcorder that isn't complete garbage, and it's been nearly impossible. I've been reading that the Panasonic AG-456 (one pictured) is a good buy, but I'm not sure. Does anyone on here have one that they're interested in selling? Or have somewhere you can point me to find better deals?

Although if he wants to record video that isn’t garbage, I don’t understand why he’s going for VHS. There’s a veeeerrry narrow slice to try to hit between “not garbage” and “better than VHS” and it’s unlikely you’ll find anything in that slice that fits the “not expensive” criteria except by sheer luck.

I’m in the same boat. I try them out every time they pop up at goodwill but they usually have at least one thing wrong with them.

There is the very common saying that "Gear doesn't matter". but doesn't it? in certain situations and style of photography, it very much matters, right? For an example(although I am pretty new) I like Macro photography, and I went from this quality (pic related) on a point and shoot with a close-up filter, to this quality (pic below) with a DSLR and a dedicated macro lens. and I'm sure there are some cameras/phones, out there that don't even have the possibility to take macro at all.
so, is the saying "Gear doesn't matter", really true?

You're using this as an example that gear does or doesn't matter?
The top shot is far better because it's composed and focused to highlight the subject and the environment, it's showing the natural twists and turns of the world the subject lives in, it uses contrasting complimentary colours, etc, etc

These are all things you don't need gear to do, so you're right, gear doesn't matter and the photographers choices made the top image better than the bottom

But at the same time when you're taking exactly the same shot with two different lenses obviously one is going to be better than the other


Better gear is better in controlled comparisons but 9 times out of 10 a better photographer on a worse camera will make better images of the same situation. As you narrow the margin of skill levels and similarly, as you narrow the margin of gear quality, eventually those two overlap more and more until even the best photographers in the world with a lego camera can't match an idiot with a top of the range DSLR in auto

Stop trying to see things in black and white and understand that anyone can get lucky, but having more skill makes you more "lucky" more of the time and in more different situations
>>
You need a camera body with manual controls and three lenses. A 28, 50, and 85.

You can do 95% of all photography with that.

>But I want to do macro shots
Go ahead and buy a macro lens. No one is stopping you, you fucking moron.

>But I want something than can shoot sports
Then buy the body with the high frame rate, see if I care.

>But I want to do underwater photography
Just buy whatever you want you fucking idiot, you're missing the point of the saying. Gear doesn't matter because a photo taken by a Leica M6 with 50mm Noctilux is probably going to look indistinguishable from a 50mm 1.8 kit lens from a 70s Pentax under 99% of conditions.

>But I want to spend $11,000 on a lens Because I think Leica is neat and I've convinced myself that I need the extra 2/3 of a stop over a 1.4 lens
THEN GO AHEAD! Go ahead! I literally cannot be bothered to reexplain this simple and direct phrase once again.

>and I went from this quality (pic related) on a point and shoot with a close-up filter, to this quality (pic below) with a DSLR and a dedicated macro lens.
The first photo was taken with a higher magnification and has a better composition too. Also, f/36 on the second photo?? No wonder it looks so soft. You don't have to worry about having an infinite depth of field with every macro photo. Sometimes subject isolation works and the result looks good.

Gear does matter, but give a beginner a 5D Mark IV and a 50mm f/1.2L lens, and you're not going to get significantly better photos than if he'd used a point and shoot.

Used this yesterday for Photoshop CC 2018, Illustrator CC 2018 and Lightroom CC. Works fine. yw

So, I have a friend who's been trying to get into photography and actually does some surprisingly good shots on an analogue Canon every now and then, but he's also a bit of a poorfag who is economically dependent from his parents and therefore can't afford to constantly buy film rolls, which often leaves him lamenting on how he rarely has the chance to improve his photographic skills. As such, what is the best digital camera I can get him on a modest ~30 euros / ~ 37 USD budget? I know there are virtually no proper DSLRs on that price point but maybe a bridge would do? There's a guy near me selling a Fuji S1700 for that exact price, should I go for it or are there any better options?

>inb4 just tell him to use his phone

He literally doesn't own a smartphone, hence why even a cheap camera might not be in reach for him at the moment.

$37 is basically not enough for anything. That’s a “hope some friend upgrades and is planning to throw away their old one” money, not “purchase a camera” money. The only way you’ll get anything worth buying for that much is sheer luck.

The Fuji s1700 is crappy, but if someone’s selling one for your exact budget, go for it. If you want him to have an actual good camera, though, you’re gonna need to save up a few more $37s.

So I just started doing amatuer photography, bought a Sony a6000 and the 15-50mm kit. Decided the only way to get better was to practice so I walked up to this old mental institution near me and took some snaps. I know I'm not great but damn this place was creepy af.

Does anyone have any experiences going through old abandoned shit like this? I was too beta to go inside but I might have to at some point, shit like this really stokes my autism.

New to /p/
Got this in the mail today and it won't focus.
Jupiter 8 2/50
Not like the normal "can't focus to infinity" problem I've read about, it'll only focus like a foot away, throwing the focus all the way will change the focus a little bit but still a foot away +/- an inch.
Its an m39 mount I'm using it on a Canon 1300D aps-c sized sensor.

Am I just doomed being a cheapskate? Muh vintage Russian lenses! Is it because Canon's flange focal distance is fucked?

Sorry for coming here and polluting, but I've googled all I can and all I'm finding is the common "can't focus to infinity" problem.

Thanks in advance.

You have an M39 rangefinder mount lens. Because of the much shorter flange distance it has been designed to work with, you cannot achieve infinity focus with it on a DSLR.

M42 mount lenses can be adapted to Canon because they were designed to be used on SLRs with longer flange distance. Sell your Jupiter, it isn't worth getting an adapter with correction optics on it. It's a pretty bad lense but hipsters pay premium for it anyway. Get a Helios-44 or Industar-50-2.

Any lens will work on just about any camera so long as the lens Flange Focal Distance (FFD) is the same or longer than the body FFD. If you want access to a wide range of 3rd party lenses from other manufacturers and for other mounts, get a camera with the shortest FFD possible. That's of course mirrorless, but not all mirrorless are the same; such as the sensor size.

Check this chart.

>>
>>3244775
>Is e-mount the smallest that will fit a FF sensor?
It sure if it’s the smallest that *will*, but it’s the smallest that *does*. Since the latest full frame Sony bodies have sensor shift stabilization, that implies that they’re actually projecting slightly beyond a full frame circle in there, which in turn implies that a slightly smaller mount could also do full frame without stabilization. I think. I am not an optical engineer.

Fuji claimed it was impossible with x-mount, and useless on e-mount, but just look at their latest camera.

Makes me suspect the IBIS on the X-H1 is the worst implementation on any modern camera body, but since no one has reviewed it that isn’t a Fuji shill (and no one really reviews Fuji seriously anyway) we won’t have any idea for a few months.

Is buying a cine lens second hand on ebay a good idea?
>>

I don't see why not

I buy most lenses used on ebay because i'm a poor boi.

In my experience, eBay is great for used video equipment, especially since you can always get your money back if what you bought doesn't match the description.

It was probably -10 when I took this. Big mittens make it challenging to operate a camera.
