the thread reach it's limit, and the problem is still unsolved.
Bring the conversation here, and let's make an end to this drama already for god's sake

FYI: Chosis also tried other frauds, more or less everywhere he can:
Claimed on /p that he would be the owner of a random picture someone asked about and demanded 250$ for it. (Second last post, he posted his crypto accounts he also has on his website.)
Claimed he would be the producer of turtlecoin.lol on /biz. (pic related)
Claimed he would have a shit ton of turtle coins to give away and advertised his IG whileso. (strg+f chosis)
And the best of all:
Unironically claimed to collect donations for the mexico earthquake victims in the name of Curz Roja. (Again used the same crypto accounts from his website as OP.)
What a fucking piece of shit.
Regarding the false donation for the earthquake, other posters called him out on his con and he replied:
>yeah these are the addresses. Sorry copy and pasted the wrong ones. It doesn't matter though i'll just transfer all the funds that got send to the addresses in the original post to these addresses [the Red Cross addresses]
I was neutral to this whole thing but wanting to profit from a tragedy like that takes a special kind of asshole now honestly, fuck him in the ass.
Also the idea, concept and design of lamboticket (besides that lambo bullshit) is stolen from
how did we figure out what chosis looks like in the first place to identify him from Twenty Sided Store on Facebook/YouTube

I enjoy taking stereo pairs so here's a small dump.
>>3297031 >Low batteries and different firmware versions will be the largest problems in timing.
Yeah this is the sort of thing I was thinking - it's best to err on the side of caution when making a decision like this.
Those two will still be a problem even if you have a mechanical way of triggering both cameras. Though, it really only depends on how fast your subject is moving as to whether it will be any problem.
Oh, and make sure you set the white balance to manual for both! I've had auto WB and get 3 different results before. That was like the only thing I'd not set to manual, but I do it now every time.
I have the Fuji stereoscopic camera and it’s great fun, I only wish I could do longer exposures for light painting 3d but otherwise I’m very happpy with it. There are also software options that will create different kinds of the red / blue 3d glasses versions of these
Good point about the WB. I've been caught out with that making stereo pairs with one camera.
I almost bought one really cheap but someone else got it before the seller answered my question. I ended up buying an £80 35mm film stereo camera 'on the rebound' and it was a disaster.
Then I got my DSLR. I wish I had been able to buy the Fuji 3D camera but I think the time has passed now.
I got mine as a floor model from microcenter for cheap, then I lent it to my friend and he broke it so he had to buy me a brand new one!
Had these developed today.

turn down the saturation jesus fucking christ
>>3292148 >every single shot is crooked. is there something wrong with your hands?
Ever heard of Dutch angle?
A thousand? How much did you shoot on film and how much on digital? Saturation is a bit much on some of them but we all have different taste.
Doesn't look that bad to me
They're not bad enough to warrant asking OP how badly their screen is calibrated but they are on that Ken Rockwell/Bad HDR level in terms of saturation
Stupid questions that need no extra thread. Post them here and get enlightened.
When trying to shoot video on my Lumix G7, I find that any shots that involve me slowly panning look especially choppy when viewing them afterward. I'm shooting at 24 fps SS: 50. Am I doing something wrong? They often look choppy even after editing and outputting to various file types
>find a roll of film in my junk drawer, figure I'll shoot it >put it in my Bentax :DDD Program A >notice that the meter doesn't seem to work >any aperture, it always reads 1/1000 (top speed) >f/22 pointed at a dark room? 1/1000. f/1.4 in midday sunlight? 1/1000. >never shows the set aperture on the lens or flashes for the overexposure warning >can't just use it without the meter, because the Program A is one of those memes with an electronically-controlled shutter Is the thing broken or does it just need a new set of those annoying little button-cell batteries?
you're already on the right track, likely it's just the batteries so do try those first, is it metering the same with the lens removed?
>>3297436 >is it metering the same with the lens removed?
yep, it reads 1/1000 with my 50/1.4, my 28/2.8, and with no lens at all. Things just died sitting on the shelf then, eh? Ah well, guess I get to wait three weeks, since I refuse to give a convenience store $14.99 for two button cells.
All film related questions and general film discussion is to take place in this thread
Please post photos, we want to see beautiful grainy goodness!

is that some chink ripoff?

Comfy focal length.
Film is only worth it with any certainty when the format or quality is outside what digital can do. Folding medium format (Zeiss Super Ikonta, Konica Pearl, Perkeo, Kodak stuff)? Worthwhile. Tiny 35mm rangefinder or autofocus compacts (XA, Contax T2/T3, Stylus Epic)? Still worthwhile, at least until they come up with curved sensors to solve the short rear focus problem which causes fringing on digital but not on film. Your standard run of the mill 35mm system camera has little place in 2018, unless you buy to use with the lenses for the system you already have because they're also good on digital like Contax/Yashica.
How much harder is developing E6 compared to C41? Wanna get a Tetenal e6 kit
Is this guy /p/ personified?
How come all these photography Youtubers are such weirdos? From Kai W to the Art of Photography guy, they all seem genuinely autistic, with the exception of the Camera Store guy.
Does this profession/hobby attract the worst people, or is it just the attention whores who are like that?
eh a cool guy. likes to gearfag and doesent afraid of anything.
>>3297064 >How come all these photography Youtubers are such weirdos? From Kai W to the Art of Photography guy, they all seem genuinely autistic, with the exception of the Camera Store guy.
They are all businesses and each character is designed to appeal to different demographics.
Ken Rockwell - soccer moms
Camera Store guy - reddit users
tatted fathead - /p/
Kai = hipster faggot art students
there will, of course, be overlaps in each case
Ken Wheeler is a psychopath. Trust me. I have no snake oil to sell.
He only produces so many videos so it's difficult backtrack his bullshit. He's a con artist pandering to noobs that want a 50 yo lens he's selling on ebay.
>>3297064 >/p/ personified?
>magnets: how do they work?
Fatty Wheeler just bought into the internet photo thing, he has a good memory and spouts shit that's already out there.There is no substance to anything he says.
I could go on....
>>3297356 >he "spouts shit" >accusing other people of saying things that lack substance
at least it wasn't the anon who puts 'literally' in front of every statement
Okay boys, here's a niche thread. Have you ever wanted to shoot those cheapish Zeiss SLR lenses but never known a fucking thing about the C/Y mount? Here's the thread for you.
Ranked by Reliability
1. Contax S2/S2b (Fully Mechanical, meter only)
2. Yashica FX-2, FX-3, FX-3 Super 2000, FX-7 (Fully Mechanical, meter only)
3. Contax 139 Quartz (with a serial of 150,000 or higher), 159MM
4. Contax RTS II, RTS III, Aria
5. Yashica FR, FR I, XF-D
6. Essentially all other C/Y bodies mainly due to bad electronics
Ranked by Price for working example
1. All Yashica Bodies (extremely cheap, $20 or less)
2. Contax 137 (~$40, Completely electronic and hilariously unreliable)
3. 139 Quartz, RTS I (~$60)
4. 167 MT (~$90)
5. 159 MM (~$110)
6. RX I, ST (~$150)
7. RTS II (~$200)
8. RTS III (~$240)
9. AX (~$280, Ridiculously complex and unreliable autofocus system that moves the film plane)
10. Aria (~$320, Matrix Metering)
11. S2/S2b ($350)
12. RX II ($370, Last C/Y body made in 2002)
My personal recommendation is to go with the Yashica FX-3 Super 2000, or if you don't want a plasticy experience/insist on shooting a Contax body, the 139Q. If money is no object, The S2 or the Aria.
Why doesn't everyone pay over $1000 for a used 28/2.8 like I did, even though there are essentially no bad choices for M mount? Don't they know you don't have any bragging rights unless it says Leitz - Wetzlar on it?
You are incorrect.
The Leitz Minolta CL with the 40mm summicron (manufactured by minolta with help from leica) came out first and when Leica terminated the deal continued as the M-Rokkor 40mm f2 on the Minolta CLE. Leica was struggling and they licenced their name (and many facets of their industrial design wing) out to Minolta as part of a partnership. They then dropped the partnership when they were embarrassed by how the CL outsold the M5.
Because m mount triples the prices just by virtue of being m mount. C/Y mount is great and also adapts to Canon which is nice.
How do you tell which C/Y lenses will and won't work on the 5D?
FX-D quartz is definitely worth picking up. The Super feels like a cheap piece of shit in comparison. I killed my quartz with a dodgy flash but it was one of the nicest 35mm SLRs I owned, really sturdy and ergonomic

Read the sticky first!
Post anything gear related, cameras, lenses, filters, bags, tripods, other accessories (clothing, fancy straps, Leica) etc...
Post your question here, instead of starting a new thread about which lens to buy or what are the best beginner cameras.
And don't forget, be polite!
I factored the lens prices, yes. Not expecting to spend that much on lenses right away, might just settle for one prime and stick to that for a while.
I don't find FF that necessary and I don't see myself upgrading to it in the future if I do go with a crop camera, but considering the very similar price points currently, I don't think that it makes a big difference.
I should also mention that IBIS in A7II is one of the points that attracted me to it. I shoot a fair amount of handheld video. A6500 is still more expensive than A7II on the used market currently, which made me curious.
It's pretty sweet to have stabilisation on all the prime lenses that otherwise don't have stabilisation.
I think it's going to be a standard from now on, everybody will be implementing it eventually, and lens makers like Tamron are already now designing lenses with the assumption the sensor is stabilised.
M8's can't be that expensive, surely? did you mean M9?
I've thought about going the same way, but the most logical thing to do is probably to buy the highest-end one you can afford and hope to be happy with it for a long time. They seem to get hit with depreciation just as bad as any other digital camera so it doesn't make sense to go bottom of the barrel to me.
Shit, I've been looking for a second backup to my 5d3 since I sold my 7D and I was looking at another MK3 but I've seen so many on the market that have mode dials that have fallen off. How the hell is this happening?
Enough of this mindless arguing over gear, exposure tactics, and software. Let's take a moment to think about what photography is really about: photographs.
Post pictures that inspire you. Things from famous photographers, things from other anons, anything you like.
Please make sure to credit the photographer whenever possible.
This is probably one of my favourite images, I like things to be a bit loose and fun but still smart, so robert doisneau and jeff mermelstein are up there. Koudelkas pictures from gypsies really hit home for me out of anything I've ever seen, the book is printed in a really coarse way that works well with the pictures, overall it's an really powerful experience taking your time and going through that book.
I remember lying in bed with my then girlfriend and looking through gypsies and one other book, I forget the other one now but we had to put gypsies down as it was just something we couldn't dedicate enough of ourselves too, it really demands a lot of attention.
This is the only book I own by mermelstein, I remember feeling lucky for even managing to get a hold of this one. There's a nice little mini-doc/news report on him that's still on youtube. His stuff is really fun, I guess it's snapshot photography, some of the compositions are pretty strong but it always feels a big self deprecating too. That really rings home for me, I like taking nice pictures but don't want them to be taken too seriously for the most part.
Salgado is obviously just iconic, I think everyone should look over pretty much his whole library of work. It's really "big" work, like the amount of.. everything present in a good Salgado picture really is something else, the texture alone really is impressive but when you factor in the staging of his subjects and the massive amounts of meaning in the images to digest.
Before I fell out with photography a few years back I started working a lot more on colour theory, It was something that felt really fundamental that I was still struggling with, Saul Leiter colour work was being memed around at the time too so picked up these two books and a few others I thought would help.
Never spent much time working on my colour stuff though, I was working on becoming a full time event photographer, emigrated from Ireland to England, couldn't make it work there so came to Vancouver, not working here. Realised it's who I'm surrounding myself with and my own expectations that are holding me back, that drove a wedge between me and my photography. I feel way too much pressure and a tinge of disappointment whenever I try pick up a camera now.
