So when you get down to it, there is clearly no better combination of anything ever before or after. Dinoriders. THE BEST.
>>
>>4817804
Oh, Dino-Riders was an amazing toyline, don't get me wrong. And I did grow up during that era, and owned a bunch of them. The thing is though, I think I was just too young when Dino-Riders came out. I thought it was cool, but like, my young mind was just too underdeveloped to truly grasp HOW cool it was, y'know? And by the time I was old enough, my idiot younger self had lost or destroyed most of the Dino Riders.

I suppose Exo-Squad just came out at a time in my life when I could really, truly appreciate every facet of a toy. It really made a big impact on me, I guess is what I'm trying to say. And since it had such a big impact, it looms larger in my mind than Dino-Riders, as awesome as that line is.

Giant sloths, IIRC. From the tail end of the line, when it was getting into ice-age type stuff.

I was too old for Exosquad but I had a lot of the dinoriders. The 3" character figures and those rubberbands were the weak point of the line.

Few things matched having the huge ass Voltron with the Voltron Castle though. I remember it having a giant version of the key and the ghost of the king hologram thingy.

They're not Kamen Riders, they won't go that fast. Vader and the Stormtroopers stayed in stock for quite a while and the past Iron Mans haven't been difficult to order at all, the 43 only sold out recently. Agito is the only upcoming release I'd be worried about missing out on, since he's the one that's going to crash the site and sell out within seconds.

with the success of the movie why didn't they think sellinmore quality dolls instead of the painted over shit for toddlers would be a bad thing ?

So, when you buy from someone and get a shitty item and find out later that you are not the first...aren't you angry at all the other lazy bastards who didn't write a (negative) feedback? Honestly, you rely on others to let you know how good a seller is and you refuse to do the same for others?
>>
>>4817288
>comparing ebay feedback to specialized education and training.

what a terrible analogy, come on bro.
a better example would be an employer checking to see if a candidate has a criminal record, to note if they have a history of scumbaggery.
>>
As a seller I don't leave feedback till I receive feedback. This way I insure that there were no problems with their purchase that I can deal with before they resort to negative feedback. Communication is key to dealing with customers, for the most part you can turn around any bad situation if everyone communicates.

There is often a lot of negative criticism of photos taken by posters but rarely is there every a discussion on how people can improve, so let's have a thread about toy photography.

What sort of camera do you use and why? What kind of price range is it in?

What, in your opinion, are good cameras for this specific purpose?

What do you do about lighting?

Share any other tips you may have on other subjects like composition, posing etc

Also, I feel like this could be a thread to get honest but CONSTRUCTIVE criticism on posters' photography. So post what you think are some of your best photos and hopefully get advice on how to improve. People offering criticism, don't just post about potato quality and greentext. If you want to see less bad toy photos then help posters take better ones.

Just to clarify, one should set the shutter speed slower (ex. 1/100) than 1/50 and not faster?

May I ask how exactly you achieved that edit? I messed with the basic settings in PS and got this. Turned down R and G to make the image cooler and Exposure up to make it brighter.
>>
>>4817123
1/100 is faster than 1/50. Slower would mean going the other way, so 1/20 or 1 second.

It's a little confusing because people talk about things like faster aperture such as f/1.2 and then a faster shutter speed. But the shutter speed goes the other way to the aperture, so the higher the number the faster it is.

Simply put, 1/100 is the fraction of a second the shutter is open for, so 0.1 seconds in this case. When you go down to 1/50 the shutter is open for longer, and therefore referred to as slower.

Hope this clears it up.

With a tripod shutter speeds become less of an issue for shooting toys.
They aren't going anywhere, so as long as they are on a solid surface, and the tripod is stable you can stick to ISO 100 with a smaller aperture (f/8 is often a sweet spot for lenses) and use a slower shutter speed to get the right exposure.
If you are using a tripod it's a good idea to get a remote (most cameras can use IR ones, and there are pretty good ones on ebay for quite cheap) or the timer function set to something like 5 seconds. This gives you a chance to press the button and move your hands away making sure the camera doesn't shake when you push the button.
>>
>>4817300
Not him, but a good first step is to go Image > auto tone.
This usually fixes some of the issues with colour balance, but if it looks like ass then you can just ctrl+z to undo it.

The auto tone function uses Levels to even out the histogram.
You can see how it works but adding a levels adjustment layer in the layers panel (it's the little circle split into black and white at the bottom) You can hit auto in there and get the same results as auto tone, but now you can actually see what it has done to the levels.
There is a box next to the auto saying RGB and if you click it you can view the individual channels to see how it changed each one.
This should give you a pretty good idea on how to adjust each colours levels to correct the colour.
>>
>>4817508
I gathered that from it, but I was just unsure if he meant "bump up the shutter speed" as in raise to a higher number or faster. I'll see how much I can get a tripod for. All I'm doing now is bracing my arms on my legs or body and stuff.
