If you're shooting an RZ is weight really of any concern?
>>
>>3325617
I just imagine the balance to be worse with the eye level than using the system as a waist level.

Weight hasn't been an issue in usage, it just gets a little issue when backpacking with it. That wouldn't apply to shooting portraits obviously.
>>
>>3325618
Oh fair, it's not a huge difference in balance since you sorta hold the camera differently when it's up to your face vs. when it's at waist height.

That said a speedgrip with the eye level prism does help tremendously for ergonomics
>>
Hello fellow /fgt/‘s, I am very new and have read the sticky so my question is, should I be using auto light meter at least for now? And also what is the difference between auto, manual, and ‘B’.
I am using a Olympus OM 20. There doesn’t seem to be a definitive answer that I have found online
>>
>>3325642
It's up to you. If you know that the meter is accurate, then sure. Doesn't make a huge difference until you're more knowledgeable about metering

Auto = autoexposure (the camera chooses the settings)

Manual = manual exposure (you choose what settings the camera uses)

B = Bulb mode (essentially the shutter stays open as long as the shutter button is pressed down. It's for making long exposures, don't use it otherwise).

Also for your camera I'm pretty sure it's aperture priority unless you have the manual attachment (little dial with numbers round the edge, like 125, 250, 500, 1000). This basically means you choose what aperture the camera uses and the camera will then pick a suitable shutter speed to go with that aperture based on how much light is in the scene.

Any other questions?

I have a Canon EOS 1100D camera and recently stumbled upon the double exposure technique and gotta say I am amazed by it but I cannot find how to do it on this specific model. Can anyone help please :c
>>
>>3325167
Not in-camera. You could always use bulb mode and cover the lens to stop exposure and uncover it to resume. If it was a Nikon, you can natively do MEs in-camera.
>>
>>3325167
Almost all digital double exposures are made via Photoshop. Just take two photos then layer them on top of each other, viola, double exposure.
>>
If you did your research on what double exposure is, you'd already have the answer, boy.
A digital sensor doesn't permanently record light like a chemical bit of film does, so you realize that you cannot do the same thing in camera, it would never be the same.

You have a DSLR, learn how to use Photoshop.

It sounds like you fell into the trap of buying a TON of vintage lenses and now you're sick of manually focusing all the time. Don't worry, I've been there too.

Sell all the vintage lenses and buy a handful of native lenses at the focal lengths you like. Looks like you enjoy 35mm lenses so go for that maybe. It'll feel wrong at first but trust me, once you get some high quality modern glass it's very hard to go back.

Like >>3325608 said, it's better to have one great camera and a few great lenses than a ton of cameras and a pile of vintage lenses.
>>
I want a cheap but crazy strong zoom/tele lens for shits and giggles. Preferably E mount but I can look into adapters. I saw some 650-1300mm lenses on aliexpress for 200 bucks, Of course I don't expect them to be good but as I said it's just for shits and giggles. Does anyone have any experience with cheap zoom/tele lenses? Are these lenses at least somewhat usable or will I totally throw my money away? Are there any cheaper better alternatives than the Chinese stuff?
>>
>>3325235
>classic
more like obsolete
>>
>>3325630
The further the zoom distance, the more hand shake is introduced making it impossible to get a good image handheld unless the camera is on a tripod. That's why NOBODY wants most vintage zoom lenses and they sell for peanuts on eBay.

So basically, you need a zoom lens with modern stabilisation built-in. I'd go for the Sony 55-210mm on e-mount, sure it's not the sharpest lens but it has stabilisation built in and it sells for fuck all used on eBay. Don't waste money on a Chinese one, it'll have the same problem as vintage lenses and you'll feel like you're wrestling with the lens to get anything usable out of it once you pass the 100mm mark.
>>
>>3325607

Legitimately sell every legacy lens save for the one you actually use. After you collect your $50 just save up for a modern lens. If you like 35mm get the Sony or Rokinon 2.8. The 55mm/1.8 is excellent too.

That’s assuming you stay with e-mount of course.

Yeah! I checked the serial number on mine and it was built in 1971. Really solid lens, though the focus helicoid could use some lubing. I've managed to get some incredibly sharp shots with it despite my D5100's garbage viewfinder.

This is one of the sharpest shots I've managed.

Come to terms with the fact you're not as good as you think you are and 99% of your shots are going to be shit regardless of what you do. This will free you up into just shooting more often. That and selecting things to improve at each time you go out worked for me

>>3324788
Similar to me but I've figured it out, I'm just too lazy to use/do it

It's all about light and processing once you reach a certain level. Even more true on a 50 1.8 where you're likely shooting portraits, headshots. Travelling and working are big parts of it too though- I've come to realise you don't learn how to shoot consistently until you start getting paid and hired by people and even then some people don't learn

I've been into fashion for years and am just getting into photography. I've got a pretty cool clothing collection and a nice body so I wanted to start doing self shot fashion photography so I picked up a DSLR and a tripod.

So far I've found it difficult to capture an interesting photo on a 10 second timer. I'm considering getting a photographer or paying a friend to use my camera, but there are days where I have time to drive out to a nice spot alone and shoot with a tripod so I'm hoping to master this method.

I really like the feel of pic related, I realize it's probably been through LightRoom, but the colors are amazing. I love the contrast between the sand, grass, wall, boots, jacket, and sky.

What are your tips for shooting with a tripod, if any?

What time of day should I shoot?

What programs or techniques do you use for editing with vivid colors like pic related?

And lastly what settings do you use?

I've been shooting on manual and aperture mode the most. Low ISO, small aperture, 1/500 shutter speed, with 18-55mm lense. (usually around 50mm)

No Digital cameras will achieve this. Maybe a few quirrky, out if production models will have flashes of appeal. M Monochrom maybe.
