Why do we still have 1000px rule? Could at least double it.

That isn't a rule. It is a request. Some threads, like macro threads don't adhere to it because of the type of content they are.

because the least web space your snapshits use, the better.

Nothing to do with bandwidth. You can post 3meg 1000px snapshit with ease. If anything there should be a rule on file sizes, and not on px. It's archaic as fuck.
>>
>>3225755
>You can use full frame lenses on crop cameras right?
Yes, assuming the mount is the same. Eg, you can use Nikon full frame lenses on a crop-sensor Nikon, and you can use Canon EF (full frame) lenses on a Canon EF-S (crop) mount. You can’t use something like a Nikon full frame lens on a Canon crop camera without an adapter of some sort.
>>
>>3225756
D5300 has wireless connectivity, flippy screen, and more autofocus points.

They’re both in about the Rebel class. Why not get a newer Rebel if you’re already familiar with (and presumably have access to at least one lens for) Canon?

I have a lens I made from scavenging parts and I'm trying to figure out the f/stop. The ridiculous f/0.46 isn't of course remotely possible, but I'd at least like some idea of what it really is. I took some photos with it and another lens in the exact same lighting conditions, for comparison (pic). I didn't take to many pains to get things into focus. Especially, since I could barely see anything in the LCD screen.

Any help here? I'm getting anything from f/1.85 to f/046.

Hey guys, recently purchased a canon a1 its in immaculate condition however it is always blurry through view finder. have tried multiple lenses that i know work for sure as i use them on my other cameras, for whatever reason however i cant get them in focus with the A1. It adjusts when but is never clear any ideas? please and thank you

An f-number is:
>the ratio of the system's focal length to the diameter of the entrance pupil

Should be able to calculate it.

Hey guys I got a camera rather recently, and I know how to use it to some degree, but are there any learning resources to learn more about techniques I can use?

I'm sure there's tons of info on using editing software like lightroom, but I'd love to improve my general skill as a photographer,
>>
>>3226836
How does one find the entrance pupil on a single element lens that does not have an aperture? The usable diameter of the lens itself measures exactly 55mm using calipers. Nothing, other than the physical diameter of the lens itself, is blocking light to the sensor.
>>
>>3226576
8 sec is about 2 stops faster than 30 ses. (8 x 2 x 2 = 32) Since both were shot at ISO 100 I would estimate your unknown lens is about f/2.8.
>>
>>3226876
What about the mount diameter?

I just measured everything and this image is to scale.

There's nothing from the sensor to the lens that blocks light along the yellow lines. Everything outside of that zone acts as ambient light baffling, but doesn't interfere with what is directly striking the sensor area.

The sensor is the short blue line.

That makes sense. I came up with that number once the same way you did. It is such a bright lens that 1/4000 isn't fast enough on a sunny day and I have to use ND filters.

You know there are mirrors inside the body, right?
>>
>>3226966
The mirrors are only used for the viewfinder. The main mirror flips up and the shutter opens to expose the sensor. You can see that happen if you take the lens off in manual mode and switch to a video mode like LiveView (Nikon). That's also a way to clean your sensor, if the mirror-up function doesn't work, because your battery is too low.

Most likely a short macro lens.

Okay, I took a lot more test shots at f/3.5 with one lens then the DIY lens. Using a color selector I was able to determine that they are 1 stop from each other. The DIY lens seems to be as close to f/2.5 as it gets.

How hard is it to get perfect white balance? Is it really as easy as using a grey card and all your photos will have perfect white balance. Or do certain lighting conditions make things more complicated? I'm digging through my old photos where I didn't use a grey card trying to find neutral spots to use the white balance selector on. While I can come pretty close to removing a lot of the color cast on people to make their skin tones look close to natural, things like walls and floors still have a strong yellow or green color cast that I just can't seem to completely get rid off.
>>
>>3227189
>How hard is it to get perfect white balance?

On the camera it can be hard if the camera doesn't have the proper ranges for white balance. There's nothing quite like seeing one thing and the camera has something else and there's no monkeying with it to get it to work right.

My best recommendation is to use something like Photoshop's Camera Raw to select different areas and adjust from there.
>>
>>3227189
I use a white balance cap when I shoot anything where colors matter (portraits, wood). IMO finding the right color balance is hard, for me to fix, because my sense of color is not that great.

What do you guys use for sharing photos with your family? Pic related, I want to share pics of my trip with them.

I'm using Google Photos since I like its sharing feature and viewer, but photos are compressed to hell and looks like shit (even though I made sure I'm storing them full size)

What's a nice service like it that does have :

- Sharing albums/parts of an album
- Decent viewer
- Can put comments on a photo, which can be seen on the photo on the slideshow
- No shitty compressed jpegs at like 10%
- At least 20GB of free storage

Tried Amazon, as I may get their prime subscription, but Google Photo does it all better, except for the compression where Amazon is okay

Never used flickr before, it might be an option I guess, but it feels dated for some reason

Not really. I got a D3400 since it has longer battery life, but a few less features, like no external mic port. My only regret is not getting something that is weatherized. Keep a plastic rain bag handy.

I feel like I'm gonna piss people off with this but what's even the reason for dslrs when mirrorless cameras can have a full frame sensor? DSLRs have a massive lens selection but is that it?
>>
>>3228180
The biggest thing for me is battery life. I can keep the lcd screen turned off 99% of the time with the DSLR and use the optical viewfinder for framing shots. The viewfinder contains all the info needed to change settings and recommend settings in manual modes, depending on camera model. Another big thing for me is size. I need something that is the right size to fit into my hand. Every mirrorless I've used is way too small. Buttons are too close together on those and everything is awkward. I end up gripping buttons to hold onto the camera and accidentally pressing them. The LCD screen of a mirrorless camera also causes night blindness, since your eyes can never adjust properly to the dark while using it.

I have 3 batteries for my DSLR and I switch one out once every 600-1200 photos. If a mirror less can match that, give me an optical viewfinder that views through the lens so I can turn off the LCD screen, and have a body form factor is a proper size for my hands, I'd probably seriously consider buying one. Otherwise, I'm not making the switch.

The biggest thing that draws me to mirrorless is the ability to adapt a massive range of lenses from other cameras.

Is there any better option than Nikon D3300 with Basic 18-105mm lens?
>>
>>3228200
A Dell Ultrasharp U2414H or any of the ultrasharp series is probably your best bet, its an IPS panel which is a must and it comes pre calibrated, also great quality build. 150 bucks is not gonna do it for you though unless you can get a refurb or something, but theyre not that expensive nowadays.

>>3228209

That's about as good as you'll get. Don't forget about tax. You should consider getting a prime lens unless you really need that aperture range .

Never really understood the 18-105 anyway. It's too short range for wildlife, and for portraits/stills you usually only need a 50 anyway

Is it worth getting insurance for your gear if you're not a professional? If anything it seems like it'd be even more difficult to recoup if you're just a hobbyists since pros will probably have extra gear anyways right?

1) There is a tool for retrieving leaders, google it.

2) You can develop them all to discover which one you missed. If your camera has a gimmick (i.e. - stripping the sprockets on the last frame) you may be able to figure it out that way.

While you can use full frame lenses on crop bodies if the mount is the same, not all lenses will autofocus on cameras with crop sensors. This has nothing to do with the lenses, but the cheaper crop sensor models doesn't have the ability to autofocus on older lenses because it would make them more expensive. For instance, Nikons AF-D lenses won't autofocus on older crop sensor entry level Nikon cameras.

Are cameras that try to focus on both stills and video worse than cameras that primarily focus on one of them?
So will, say, the Sony A7r III produce worse stills since they also put some focus on the video aspect of the thing

>>3229060
Might vary between bodies, but generally speaking stills won't be worse, but for video you should get a camera that's focusing on video.

No.

Even for the a7 series which is praised for its video abilities, the video is little more than a tacked on afterthought compared to photo features.

A different story with something like the NEX-VG20 though.

I was at a party this weekend and i finished a roll of film. When I took it out of the camera, the leader was outside the canister and creased. Has this roll been exposed, or did I make a mistake loading or unloading it? I was pretty fucked up, so it's possible I just pushed a button that I don't remember.

This roll came from a Vivitar AF450, an incredibly underrated point and shoot with a prime lens it.

I vote yes. I’m guessing the short answer to your initial question is “no”, but I’m looking forward to the discussion of why the hell you’d want to.
>>
>>3229784
There exist cameras with a special mode to not suck in the leader when rewinding. Rare for that in a point and shoot though (especially from Vivitar), but I wasn’t able to find any info about that guy, so it’s possible.

But I’m going to disagree with everyone else and say there’s a decent chance it was successfully shot. The kink in the film is what you’d get from the roll being held by the takeup spool for a prolonged period of time. When the camera automatically rewound, depending on what it uses to sense “I’m done rewinding”, it very possibly might have gotten caught up by that kink. Eg, if it rewinds for a set amount of distance, the kink might have just kept the end from getting sucked in at the end by causing it to be a little less slackly-wound in the cartridge.

In any case, it won’t cost *me* any money to get it developed, so I say take it to the lab.

You can develop the roll as-is, or you can run it though a camera again.

If you use it again, you're guaranteed to at least get something.

First off, tits are awesome and the wonderful women who want you to take pictures of them should not be disparaged.

Secondly: Maybe try going with a professional modelling agency if you want professional models?

>>3230552
>>3230557
I think those have problems with the mirror getting stuck in the up position. If someone fiddled with it trying to fix that, then something else may have come loose. You'll probably have to send it in if you are not DIY enough to do it yourself, most people are not. You can make that judgement by looking at repair pics/vids online of that camera.
>>
>>3230560
Any chance you could spoonfeed me/point me in the right direction? The part in the original picture is the main mirror right?
>>
>>3230564
The part in the picture looks to be the focusing screen, not the mirror. If you google “Minolta x700 focusing screen” it looks like it might be something you can fix yourself if it just popped loose and didn’t snap something off.
>>
>>3230552

It looks like the focus screen just fell out.

Hard to tell on a phone, but mirror looks okay.

Just remount the focus screen, e-z-p-z.

>I think the only reason it's used in landscape photography is that it's large format film, and large format film is only made in squares.
1. Large format film is commonly made in 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10 formats, none of which has a 4:3 aspect ratio.
2. Also, they're rectangles, not squares.

Unless I’m misunderstanding you, this is exactly what digital cameras do with Bayer interpolation. Each photosite is actually measuring ONLY red, green, or blue, so I assume that’s what you mean by “sub-pixel”, but when the photosites are bayer-interpolated, they use each photosite as a pixel by combining it with its neighbors.

while technically you can get in trouble, most people don't give a shit and fewer still know the law. you could even just claim that you don't post them anywhere, or that you're doing a series about anonymity in the city, and that you blur out all faces in photoshop (friend pulled this off one time much to my surprise).

the only time in my 5 years there that i got called out was taking a picture of a city counsellor putting up an art instillation, and frankly he was just calling me out for jokes (and we ended up having a really good converstaion about it).

if someone yells at you in quebecois just say 'oh im sorry, tourist, i'll erase, uhhh... effacer' (pronounced ay-fas-ay and is french for erase). then fiddle with your camera for a second, look at them, nod, smile, and give them a little apologetic wave as you walk away.

at the end of the day it's a touristy city, and the people there are in general pretty chill and open to the arts, so somebody walking around taking pictures isn't a target for their anger.

>Now that the dust has settled and turned to granite, why are there no VHS-C cameras that record as well as whatever produced feature movies on VHS?
What produced feature movies on VHS was 35mm film. The reason they are high quality is because film records at relatively high resolution, high dynamic range, and with a big enough surface area to have meaningful control over depth of field. Unlike what your girlfriend repeatedly tells you while you’re crying on the end of the bed after catching her looking at porn on your computer while you were away from the house, size matters.

In the days of VHS, it was not yet possible to produce a sensor the size of 35mm motion picture film (which is to say, what we now call APS-C) which could record video. They barely had sensors that could record stills that large. By the time technology progressed to the point where we could record video with a large-size sensor, technology had also progressed well past VHS.

I am new to photography, or rather I'm familiar with it but want to get my own. I hope asking these questions are okay here. I have been looking at comparisons of mid-tier mirrorless/dslr with articulated LCD for calm indoor environment+outdoor travel vlog videos and narrowed it down to these. Which should I get, or is there something else you'd recommend for this price? I know there's nearly-as-good stuff for few hundred cheaper, but I can't afford 'practice dslr' and constant upgrades.

Fuji xt20 has more focus points and can do 4k video, I know it overheats at that resolution if used for 30 minutes but I won't be shooting for that long at once. Meanwhile Canon 80d has longer battery life, better LCD articulation, and seems to be more popular/can get more lenses in the long run?

That would be a good solution for when I'm sitting indoors doing videos, but I won't be able to hold my phone and cam when walking out and about.

After doing more research I found Sony a6300 is also similarly good for the price. Since 4k dslr are very expensive and I don't like to use viewfinders I'll probably knock the Canon out and now consider the Fuji and Sony, though the biggest thing I like about the Canon is it's screen is fully articulated for filming myself.

Probably pretty badly, but that’s okay. Being terrible at something is the first step towards being good at something. You’ll look back at the early stuff and wish you could go back and take a mulligan with the knowledge you’ve gained since, but if you hadn’t done those shitty early shoots, you wouldn’t have learned what not to do.

Go on social media and ask for models, but be honest about who you are and what it is that you want. If you are a newbie just wanting some practice, explicitly state that.

Since you dont have a car the best thing to do is choose a set location like a public park, often easily accesible by public transport both for you and the model, also makes you seem like less of a creep if you are willing to meet in public.

Not a question but a tip for anyone to whom it might be useful just because I'm in a good mood-

I recently ordered third party batteries from Amazon for Sony alpha range and they didn't work so I tried to return them. Turns out you can't send li-on batteries through the mail in most countries unless they're within a device. Meaning you can get free batteries for almost any camera by ordering them on amazon then simply being honest when you return them- after a phonecall to amazon explaining the situation they'll have no option but to pay for a collection (which costs them more than the product is worth anyway) or simply refund you in full.

Bit of a dick move but Amazon have made literally thousands off of me so I'm not against it morally, but to each their own
>>

it's actually the same way with other inexpensive products you order from Amazon (DVDs, Books etc.)

Most China orders on amazon are no-return. I've had problems with 2 items, an insulated carafe ($75) and a lens coupling ring ($10). The carafe wouldn't hold any heat for longer than 2 hours due to crappy design at its neck (body acted like a metal-on-metal heat sink) and the coupling ring was actually a step-up ring. In both instances, I complained about the problems and the broken English replies I got were essentially, "very sorry! keep it, we will refund you, please give us good rating". This sort of thing does lead to customers bullying sellers too which has been a problem evidently.

Flash allows direct, even light that can either look natural in your frame, or be used to further separate your subject from the background.

Trying to push an underexposed area in post leads to noise/artifacts pretty quickly, and if there’s no dynamic light on your subject trying to make it brighter is a poor substitute for proper lighting and exposure

I see. It does have a raw or raw + jpeg mode though, but even if I set it to that it won't let me get a slow shutter speed at high ISO.

Even still it takes fairly decent pictures if you mess with the settings enough. it also has an equivalent 24-1440 mm lens that is very handy in most if not all situations. here's a better version of that last pic.

Pro spots photographers:

Was at a Toronto Raptors game last night and noticed one of the photographers, who seemed like the team photographer. When he was sitting baseline during the game I couldn't help but notice it looked like he was tethered to what I'm assuming to the pressbox/editor. I figured during half time photographers would dump whatever they shot for review, but is it common to shoot tethered when possible?

Put the camera on raw and full manual mode if possible and get a tripod. For scenes demanding high dynamic range (high contrast like bright skies against shadowy buildings) you can shoot multiple exposures in a way that the darkest/least exposed image has no blown out whites and the lightest image has no pure blacks. I would usually take 3 pictures for a landscape: one where the sky looks nice and well exposed, one where the dark foreground doesn't lose any details and one intermidiate for capturing the tones in the middle. For getting good results, you want to change the shutter speed and not the aperture, and not change by much unless you are going to use more than 3 pictures. After taking all multiple exposures (and making sure they don't differ from each other apart from just exposure) you can get them to your computer and download a program that supports the making of HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. Look up "How to make HDR pictures" if you want a more in-depth anwer, but there is plenty of info on wikipedia about the essence of it with some great examples: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-dynamic-range_imaging#Examples

Of course there are cameras that do these functions automatically (AEB on canon) but I'm assuming yours doesn't. Even if it does, you'll understand the concept better if you do it all manually.

Get a better GND (I guess you meant graduated ND btw, cause a uniform ND affects the whole image not just the sky).
The difference between cheap NDs and more expensive ones is that the expensive ones are actually neutral while the cheap ones introduce colour casts. Not saying spend $100 on a B+W one, but for $20-30 you can find decent ones.

A graduated ND will have the most dramatic effect in saving skies from blowing. From there on there are some secondary things you can do:

1. if you're not shooting very wide lenses, you can stack a polariser on top to cut some stray light off the sky and darken it a bit

2. underexpose a bit and then mask the sky and burn in the rest in post

Also, there are things like graduated colour filters, like a graduated orange, that act like GNDs but only for the sky (and blue objects). You can stack one of those on top of your GND.


But honestly, a good GND is all you need and will make the most difference.

You can burn in the sky a bit too, with newer sensors you can salvage lots of detail from raws

Use the, "Magic Cloth Technique". It is similar to using a graduated filter, only manually. Otherwise, HDR exposure stacking is needed.

Color film was intended to be printed in CMYK, so why do scans always turn out to be RGB?
>>
>>3238247
You need to either change t he settings yourself or get a scanner that can output CMYK file formats. The same goes for any display device you are using. You need to remember one major thing. CMYK isn't for digital. CMYK is for reflective/subtractive color. A monitor is projected light which is completely different. If you want true CMYK you can't digitize it in any manner at all.

Or should I just start out with something cheaper to begin with? After doing some research it seems like the GH5 would be able to do most the things I want (4k/60FPS). Is it always necessary for beginners to start on a cheaper camera?

I've been learning about how bokeh and diffraction spikes are created by the various hardware & settings your lens has and can do. I was testing out a lens using some extension tubes and back-lit glitter dust just to see what it would do. With this lens I notice a few things. The foreground looks like typical orb-shaped bokeh, but the background looks like diffraction spikes; both are outside the DOF of course. In photos of bright points of light, like a street light that is within the DOF, the light turns into a big round bokeh diffraction "spike". It makes it so that the in-focus lights look out of focus. This is very apparent in long nighttime exposures in cities. Things outside the DOF in the background have a hazy milky appearance, but the foreground doesn't. Basically, the foreground has better contrast and sharpness than the background.

Is there a term for the difference in way the foreground and background outside the DOF are so different in how they are out of focus? I've been trying to research this, but I'm not finding anything specific enough to help me gain more understanding about it.

The photographer and skill thereof.

If what you meant to ask was "What differentiates between a good photo and a snapshot" the answer is skill- angle, bokeh, good light, composition, framing and all the other standards of good photography are almost always missing in snapshots

These days there's no benefit. I suppose you could argue price in some cases.

>>3229039
Depends entirely on the tripod and camera. Any medium-good tripod will include a hang hook

>>3239113
Technically it wins in resolution and doesn't have a bad dynamic range, but since you have to scan it anyways it loses overall as far as I know.

Anyways, the process of developing film by yourself and taking it slow seems pretty enjoyable and comfy, just liike large format photography.

I recently got a Ricoh KR-10 (based on the Cosina CT1, Canon T60, Nikon FM10, Olympus OM1) and the shutter is stuck, but only when on specific speed settings. It works on bulb (hold the button and then release); the mirror flips, the shutter opens as long as specified, closes, and the mirror returns. On setting ‘X’ (not sure if it’s common, so just in case it’s like an automatic version of bulb that doesn’t hold the shutter open with the button), it does the same thing.

The shutter doesn’t return on any other speed settings, nor the auto shutter speed setting. It’ll flip the mirror, but the shutter doesn’t open, and the the mirror will not return.

I’ve tried messing with the ISO setting just in case, rewinded/winded some film, etc, and everything advances and works fine except actually taking pics.

The camera is in very clean condition (stored in my house by my pedantic father), and I can’t see any gunk.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

I have an opportunity to make a big reinvestment in my system in the next couple months. I'm a Nikon shooter currently, but I'm going to replace almost all my lenses. Long story. The camera I wouldn't be replacing is a D810.

Currently the plan is to go with a Nikon D850, I have one pre-ordered since they're on back-order.

However, I have this feeling that now is the time if there ever will be a time to get into Leica. Instead of the D850 I could go for like a used M-240 or equivalent. Lens-wise, probably a 35 or 50 cron and a sack full of fun Voigtlanders to round out the system.

Am I crazy? Is this a bad plan? Should I just stick to my Nikons? I do love'em and I occasionally do short films, where the 850's 4K capabilities would really help me out. With a Leica I'd have to get a Sony or Panasonic and adapters to do video.

I want to experiment with videos as well, but 4K dslrs are fucking expensive, but I've also seen that most good mirrorless cameras are great for video but not as good for photos.

>>3240967
>Why do lenses have a switch to turn off IS? What reason would you ever have for turning it off?
1. The main reason is for tripod use. Some IS systems in lenses will actually give you worse quality if the camera's already on the tripod. I don't know the actual reason for this, although I can hazard a guess.
2. There is a bit of a battery life cost. Not huge by any means, but might be significant in a pinch.
>>
>>3240967
IS is not needed on a tripod, and can in some cases even reduce sharpness. It also drains battery. So, if you're snapping away on a bright sunny day with a wide angle lens, just turn off the IS.

Spend more on your lenses, worry about resolution less.

Also depends if you're shooting crop factor, full, etc but generally unless you're shooting 1.6 crop factor or above you're not going to care about the resolution as much as you are the lens quality for a while. Unless you're printing or doing composites, panoramas, etc

If you pay close attention to films they rarely use such a shallow dof as many people do with stills, and they tend to stick with the same aperture for most shots, gives it more continuity.
