Hi there /p/
I'll be travelling to Ireland soon, spending 2 days to see Galway and the Cliffs of Moher plus 4 days in Dublin, with a day trip to the Giant's Causeway and Belfast; I'll bring a 14-40mm, a 28-112mm and a 100-300mm.
Has anyone of you /p/eople been there and could give me a couple of hints, specially about landscapes? Thanks!

>>2660527
Also yeah I'm from Belfast originally, make sure you go around the titanic museum in golden hour on a fairly nice day, makes for a lovely photo. Other than that, Ireland, especially round Galway is just 100% green, try use it as an excuse to make some abstract landscapes and stuff since straight up picture_of_hill.jpg is kind of overdone. Also, if you're American don't mention muh heritage, and if you're English don't wear Orange.

>>2660527
might want to stop by Howth when you're in Dublin (little peninsula, there's a train that takes you there). Hike up the hill and you'll get some great sweeping coastline vistas.

also not the "hike up the hill" part. I did it with a DSLR, a sackful of nice lenses, and a nice big stable tripod. I don't regret it, but I wouldn't recommend that unless you're in significantly better shape than I am.
>>
>>2660527
The Glens of Antrim would be worth a visit.
Also if you're in Belfast I'd recommend climbing Cave Hill, it offers great panoramic views all over the city.

There's plenty of tour buses that'll take you to all sorts of locations, the Game of Thrones tour would probably be idea for landscape opportunities.

Also The Mournes.

I can photoshop you anything you like and here's a small example.
You pay only after the photo is finished and you verify a watermarked proof.
If you can imagine it I can probably photoshop it.
It has been very hard on me and I am not beyond asking for help but I want to give something in return.

I really hope I can get help here as I am all out of options. Thanks for having a look at my work.

Can we have a bro camera shop story thread?

Today I went into my local shop in pic related wanting to return my Ricoh GR for store credit to put towards a different camera. I explain to the sales person (who sold me the camera) that literally the only thing I dislike about the camera is the lack of a view finder. Everything else about this camera is amazing.

When I bought the camera she told me she'd check to see if I could get the view finder from them for free because she'd seen some places bundle it together.

So anyway, back to today, she gives me the Ricoh flash ($340) AND the Ricoh GV-2 view finder ($250) for free. Needless to say I stuck with the Ricoh GR.

Fuckin' love Precision Camera. If you live in ATX or are near there, I recommend giving all your business to Precision. I've always done my business there. They never let me down and everyone that works there is so knowledgeable and friendly, too.

Do you guys have any stories about your local shops being bros to you?

Outside of filming for national ad campaigns or decent-budget indies, the average client doesn't know or care about the tools, so if you're not even able to factor in a good amount of additional cash for "renting" your gear for the production, then why not use a DSLR, or something that's comfortable and easy to use, start to finish?

In my experience, most clients only notice image quality, to a certain point, and beyond that, you can give yourself more work than you need to by using a Cinema-level Camera, or even something like a Black Magic. I tested this out on a shoot where two of us were asked to travel and film an event. The DP used a Scarlet, and I second shot on a Canon5d. At the end of the day, the dipshit reps from the company that breathed down our necks the whole day didn't know what they were looking for. Their editor had the same issues with both cameras' footage, and ultimately the DP spent more of his time than it was worth to correct and transcode all of his footage.

These people do not see a difference, they only know buzzwords from their 1 Search Deep Google expedition into video.

>"I'd like the video to be 1920x1080 and HD"
>>
>>2660386
I can attest to this.

I got a client who uses the word "b-roll" as if he fucking knows what that means, trying to do god knows what with this word etc.

>They're the main focal lengths for a reason

That reason being...?

Also I don't know how to ride a bike and I have no problem shopping at target. Actually I have been looking for a place to buy a calculator. If they have one cheaper than Staples I'll totally buy it there. Thanks for reminding me.

I have a 50mm and an 85mm but from my experience the 85mm and 24mm just are don't fit my needs. If I wanted to be different I would 57mm and 31mm or medium format focal lengths like 60mm and 90mm. Just that the people who say 24,50,85 are like the people who say the perfect lens is a 43mm because they read somewhere that is a perfectly normal lens for 35mm. If 24,50,85 fits them fine but it's just nauseating hearing people regurgitate what they read online over and over.
>>
>>2660683
>That reason being...?
Because for most people, in most situations, their subject tends to fit well into the normal focal length range from the usual distance. 24, 35, 50, and 85 are the most prevalent range of primes because they're different enough to be worth buying each of them (unlike a 24 and a 28, or a 50 and a 55) and they're the lenses that companies have the most effort into getting the best quality out of.


Being different for different's sake doesn't mean a 57 in stead of a 50, it means (I only shoot 18mm and 130mm, anything between 35 and 85 is boring.


I don't pick a 35 because Ken tells me to, I do it because it's a great focal length for most things that aren't portraiture. Like everyone does.
>>
>>2660698
>they're the lenses that companies have the most effort into getting the best quality out of

That is just something you made up.

You misunderstood me. I don't have a problem with normal focal range lenses. It's all I use. I was commenting on people parroting "24,50,85" like they are the only focal lengths. I don't have a problem with those focal lengths individually but too many people think they are the end all and be all of focal lengths without seeing other options they might enjoy. I don't have a problem with any focal length.

>35
>I do it because it's a great focal length for most things that aren't portraiture.

This is exactly the drone like behaviour I'm talking about. This sounds exactly like something you could have read in a stupid blog. A 35mm, unlike what you have heard, is capable of taking a picture of someone's face. It might look a little distorted but so does an 85mm or a 135mm which are accepted as the ideal portrait focal lengths. A 35mm can give a portrait a different look. I find it useful when taking pictures of fat people because they don't want to look fat and a longer lens can make fat people have a face that is too fat. Yes they will have a bigger nose but if you put them off center it's not as bad and it's a 35mm, it's not that wide.

>“Based on what I’ve seen in these tests, I really believe that the vast majority of people who have broken UV filters have simply broken their UV filters and really didn’t save their lens at all,” Perry says. “I believe that in most cases, the filter didn’t do anything to save their lens from cracking or breakage — the UV filter simply broke because they’re much more prone to breakage than the lens itself is.”

>On the other hand, the front elements of lenses are much, much stronger. Lenses were usually able to emerge completely unscathed from drops that shatter every single filter Perry tested, and usually some other part in a lens breaks before the front element does.

>“If the hit was hard enough to bust the lens, chances are, a UV filter wouldn’t have helped.”

New lenses are better but not by much especially when stopped down. Some 20+ year old lenses sell for lots of money because they are fucking good. Lenses are not like your digishit camera that depreciate as soon as you buy it and have to buy a new one every year because the new one just came out and it's actually better. Lenses are an investment because they can last you years and still be perfectly useful while holding their value unlike your camera. Yes they wont perform as good as modern lenses at wider apertures but everything else will be just as good as modern lenses.

If you don't own lenses now that you don't think will last 20 years you bought the wrong shit.
>>
This test is fucking stupid. It brings the false assumption that a filter's purpose is to prevent catastrophic loss.

If you every intend to sell a lens on eBay or Craigslist, people are cunts about any nick or scratch on front element. It loses you money.

I've used and reused the same B+W filters for 10 years, and every front element I have is mint.

None of the arm waving changes the fact that pristine front elements help a lens retain its value and that lens coatings are pretty easy to marr, scratch, or otherwise make imperfect.
>>
>>2660676
Keys are normally brass and are pretty unlikely to scratch glass. What normally WILL scratch it are little invisible grains of silica stuck in the cloth you're using to clean with.

>>2660689

>Anyone who's got a scratched lens, take a photo and post it here with a time stamp.

Beej, surely if you've been using the same filters for 10 years, they have lots of wear and tear now, right?
>>
>>2660695
Of course they have wear and scratches, yes. Shit happens. Particularly the coatings. I've busted or really fucked up two over the years as well.

Outside some pretty rare situations, it doesn't affect the images in any important way.

And for every lens I've sold - the glass was mint.

I bought a P0 ballhead just a few weeks ago, and was a bit pissed at the no plate thing.
But the that is still available in naked format without any kind of quick release for a lot cheaper, so I got a Giottos Arca-style QR and a couple of plates for less than the difference.
The one I got is a lot longer as well, so it's actually a better fit for how I use it.

>gave my friend my old EF 24-70mm f/2.8L for his birthday because I got the Tamron VC version for cheap
>still uses his EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 instead
FUCK I should have sold it and got him a bunch of memory cards instead.

Why are cropbabbies so dumb?

VC is more important to some people than 2% sharpness in the corners.

that's 35mm mate, incredibly useful. that said, the efs lens has 24mm as well, and I'd take 17mm over 70mm
>>
>>2659167
I'd probably still use the 17-55 also imo

a lens like that is wasted to some extent on a crop camera

you're holding all that additional weight and value for not a great deal extra

Radation from flight fucks it up pretty quickly, actually. They still ship expensive sensors from Asia to North America by boat, because even though it takes a month longer, you risk much less radation.

The 1.8G is a legitimately better lens, hence the price gap. It's also by no means expensive.

The 1.8D ain't bad, either. Go for it.

For most people who are working with non-static subjects, the answer would be no.

Get the cheaper lens only if pretty much all your subjects are still. The 1.8G isn't even expensive.

I guess it's always a matter of how much counts as "fucked up".

I'm applying fairly lax standards, a bunch of bits flipped in a photo after some days of flight probably will be less damage than a speck of dust, but YMMV.

Not that I can actually even use the scientific prediction models for NAND RAM damage, a casual look at "Inside NAND Flash Memories" showed me that this topic is just too complex for my level of attention span / interest.

PS: I think we agree on the flight fucking it up more than the x-ray.

Should make sense, with the dosage of ionizing radiation at least an magnitude higher (and individual particles sometimes hitting much harder) during flight than on a typical airport x-ray.

Thanks. I'd add a SSD and a better graphics card, and maybe more storage.
