The only consistency with fucks like the one you responded to is their hatred of White people. You'd think they wouldn't bother with a slow board like /p/, unless one of them lost a political argument with some random ideological opponent who posts here and then whined to his associates afterwards.

They're not very subtle about it. They would've gone farther in this particular thread if they hadn't laid into the "le cowboy" angle so heavily and making their biases obvious.

>he now expects cameras of increasing technical sophistication... the actual results...usually remain far below the technical potential.

This is true of everything in consumerism. Boomers demand 4k oled panels then watch shitty 1080p, low bitrate garbage beamed to them by TV providers

People insist on building trucks capable of towing extreme amounts, with lift kits and other modifications for rock crawling despite the fact they will never use it for such.

Because consumerism is not connected to anything other than consuming. If camera manufacturer's released a new camera with the same specs as a previous camera. Despite the fact a large portion of the consumers aren't currently using the camera to it's fullest potential will be upset, not because he is being limited but because he no longer has a reason to consume and without a reason to consume he realizes that he doesn't need to suffer the job that he endures because it pays well. He doesn't need to make the 45 minute daily commute he suffers through. He can no longer justify having missed large portions of his children's childhood. Without consumerism, the very foundations for the modern life are knocked out from under it and people have to face the fact that they are deeply unhappy and have been tricked into living a life they hate. So instead they consume it gives the illusion of progress and a sense of a tangible increase in material standing to justify all the time spent doing meaningless, unfulfilling busy work for 40+ hours a week.

It is pathetically easy to use a camera to its highest potential

Just crop, and expect it to still look good. Or turn the ISO up. Or expect your prints to look sharp close up.

way way, way way back when, people were buying relatively high speed cameras where the shutters went all the way up to 1/1000 (WOW) to take photos of landscapes and posed groups of family members at f/11. nothing else.

these days yeah its piss easy. point a camera at a dog, go to a sports game, be one of the million people who took an easily accessible community college art class online... but back then, they could not google, and the fastest sport was baseball.

Hello /p/

I come to you with a dilemma. A few months ago, my house was broken into by some urban youths and my dry cabinet with my Canon 5DMIV and L Lenses was stolen. Police did their thing, and my home insurance paid me out the total replacement value for my goods.

I figured now would be a good time to go mirrorless since I'm sitting on a good chunk of money and can afford to get a mid tier body and a trio of good lenses. My first instinct was to go back to Canon with the R6MKII or R5 and the 2.8 zooms but holy fuck are they about 30% more expensive than their DSLR and EF counterparts. I'd actually have to add some more out of my savings just to get the shit I want.

This obviously had me looking at Snoy. All the memes and influencer bait aside, it seems like they actually make pretty decent cameras and native lenses- as well as allowing Sigma and other manufacturers access to their AF mount. I can rebuild my kit and even have some left over to put towards a video oriented camera like the ZV-E1.

That's gotten me really interested since I've been shooting a lot more video lately. My dad has early stages of Alzheimer's so I've secretly been making vids of our family life, trips we take, places we go to eat, even when I visit him to walk our dog- just so he has something he can hopefully watch one day if things get worse. So having something that really can take stills and shoot great video with the same lenses is really attractive to me.

So please /p/, help a brother out. I don't spend too much time online since I'm mostly an analog shooter and used digital for weddings/engagement for some extra $$$. I don't know if Sony has fixed people's complaints regarding build quality, shit menus, or CoLOr ScIEnCE that people like to say are big reasons to avoid them.

I've been trying to do my research but everyone on YouTube is a shill and I can only check Ken Rockwell's site too many times without supporting his growing famaily.

iPhone will fit your requirements perfectly. Nothing easier or better for taking video for elderly family members.
They don’t want to be messing around with tech trying to get it to play, they want something that will just work on their iPhone or iPad when they try to watch.
Also you will end up with so much more content since it’s way easier to carry around, shoot, doesn’t need any editing etc.
Trust me your family members do not give a fuck about bokeh or shallow dof
>>
>>4304375

Also you are correct about online, every single poster is just somebody arguing to justify whatever they chose to buy and every content creator is just lying to sell you shit. Trust none of them. Flickr groups for a camera or lens are good to show the average of what they produce, YouTube will have some video examples but mute the video to avoid opinions.

If you're looking to save money in as many ways as possible while still getting a pretty good product, go Sony.

Flickr groups are awful. You can't conflate userbase with what a camera can actually do, especially not on flickr, or else you'd think film can only take boring photos of stop signs and digital can only take UWA HDR landscapes in yosemite national park.

Dear god, even Gerald is Dunking on Fuji onions. Why don't these people realize that they aren't 'misunderstood', they are just unlikable pretentious cunts on a budget since they'd all desperately like to shoot Lecia instead.

been a long time guys, having a kid and a fucking meth-head crazy dog AND being an arborist climbing trees year-round doesn't give me much time to shoot anymore. Other than the 3 or 4 opportunities I'm given to go shoot, i just don't really want to anymore.

This will probably be the last time i post here, some of these are new, taken with my trusty old Ricoh Gr i got way back in 2015 (which i never ONCE dealt with the *dust* issue), some with my Nikon d750, and a few from my Samsung S10/Google Pixel 7 phones.

A lot of these are going to be old files I've either re-edited, or old RAWs i never got around to touching, and just recently gave them my best shot. I will also add a few photos i think are my absolute best (i will label them as such), feel free to shit on as many of them as hard as you want, ill bite the pillow and take it dry.

Anyways, its been a great 10 years on this god forbidden board, and even though gear faggotry never slowed (in fact, it got worse, thanks Sony) you guys were the ones that taught me everything i know. From taking and giving criticism, to techniques and genuinely great advice, i got it from here (i still miss Bass). Thanks guys, its been fun.

Anyways, feel free to post any old or recent lowlight/night shots you've taken. It doesn't have to be recent either, post night shots from years ago that you're the most proud of, id love to see.

Fuckin neeerds hate seeing SPASM on their cameras bc they want to think of making image as being some exercise in purity. I love it. I shoot on programmed automagic all the time, jpg never raw, and throw out every third image just for lulz bc I'm ken fuckin rockwell and I am a goddamn photo theory arsonist.

Just don't use P you dorks, A is useful, S for those instances (you know em), B when you really need to get jiggy wit it. M when you just need to set A & S & want to fuck up your shit with some crazy fucking iso and make a pointillist painting out of your image because why not.

This shit is sophisticated AF. Matrix metering, AIS, SPASM, this thing is practically magic.

Strap!
The one in pic related is like 10€ on amazon. It's very comfortable because the rope is very thick.
The most important part is that it's very sturdy because all connections are megal.

It's not really abot dropping the camera. I like the strap because "sometimes" you need two hands and several lenses are not pocketable. I never carry my camera like this btw >>4304343

My camera has been sitting in the corner for like for ever and I've finally decided to get into photography. However I don't know where to start: do you have any book or youtube channel to recommend in order to learn the basics? I would like to do mostly model like shootings

and even though i as a 40 year old millennifart boomer often shit on gen-z i think it is kinda cool. Just imagine them going to whatever social gathering they are assembling in, bringing out all these cool semi-vintage digicams that nobody gave 2 shits about until recently..
The market is absolutely booming right now.. they want it all. The shittiest model you can imagine? Guess what.. they want it and they want to pay more than yesterday.
In certain niche markets these things sell for even above ebay prices which is insane.
Gen-z is unironically making photography fun again?
It is also quite interesting to think about the conditions that made this possible in the first place. So what happened exactly? My viewpoint is the following:
Younger Gen-z social media users have only used cellphones for photography.. they have finally realized that the platform has limitations.. they look at pictures their parents took of them when they were kids using digicams and want that particular look etc, meanwhile the large camera companies have completely neglected this market segment thanks to plebs only using their phones. just look at Canon for instance.. they haven't released a single Ixus model in 7 years and their last hoorah was nothing special in terms of specifications so we have to go back even further to find their high end models. Other companies have done the same.. there is nothing to be seen from the likes of Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Fuji, Samsung or any of the companies that for years made these ultra-compact and cool looking cameras.
It find it all really strange. You have a generation that simply loves this type of stuff and nothing to sell them. Just imagine these cameras with updated hardware, maybe some fresh colors and "limited edition" varieties.
Also feel free to post pics of cool digicams.

older point and shoot cameras have way more soul then cellphones. modern cell phones look good but they have crazy amounts of automatic post processing. also small sensors with high megapixel count has the effect of making photos look soulless. then you sprinkle a CCD sensor and you got a winner.

I think I helped start this trend and the A590 has been on of my favorites.

How the fuck do I get the angle right? It has never been my experience to have a dish in front where it's super puper obvious what exactly is worth showing.

pic attached is one way to go about it, escpecially with lunch boxes where every slot should be shown, but is there a rule of thumb for angling? should i just go along with my guts on it? can't help but feel that i could have done a better job of a dish just by tilting the plate a tad.

i think you should build the meal around the angle rather than the other way around.

oh and stick to one light source to illuminate the whole meal, makes for good highlights

I like top down to show plating and portions, but the meal can't be hot or you'll fog your lens - at least from my experience shooting in a lightbox.
I got sick of having to eat my incredible meal cold to be able to photo it, so I just take a quick phone snap and chow down now.

Try using a 4x5 camera.

Your food'll go cold if you do this shit. Just eat your meal instead of being some posh git, leave photography for more interesting subjects.

An easy trick is dropping the food, you could of held a grape above the meal and photographed it falling, and then the money shot of it bouncing up in the air while the rest of the food gets slightly bumped.
Best result is you need a 2nd person to just drop the plate of food and then you shoot as it hits the table and the food bounces.

>to show that i planed in advance
And planning that firmly in advance for a weather-dependent event is still retarded even if you were lucky. What if the nearest clear skies were 100 milss or more from the hotel?

pretty sure he is mad because he waited till the last minute to go somewhere and still cucked by clouds.

nigger, as you can see in my picture i have a 11 month old, i'm not driving hundreds of miles out of my way at the last minute with a baby screaming in my backseat for hours because some faggy weatherman told me to. also you clearly dont regularly look at weather reports if you think they're ever accurate. the entire two weeks ahead of the eclipse it was said indianapolis was going to have either mostly cloudy or rain as the weather on monday. the skys were clear the entire time. the only time i even had rain was for like an hour on tuesday when i went to the zoo.

anyways where even are your eclipse pics itt?
