Last thread died early and the number of random single gear related threads increased a lot, so opening a new one. Hopefully, it will be more visible for the newly masses.

Anything about lenses, cameras, mounts, systems, buying, pricing, selling, etc. GOES IN HERE!

Do not open new threads for gear-related issues.
No pointless (brand) arguments and dick waving allowed! You have been warned! Just questions, answers, and advice.

And don't forget, be polite.

Lately i have been looking out for a good 6x17 camera. Ived been thinking of getting into making large prints of landscapes or architecture and selling them.

The shen hao 6x17 camera seems to be the best option because of rise and fall and tilt etc etc plus wide variety of lenses but on the other hand it might be the best run and gun option unlike the Fujifilm GX617 which is slightly straight forward and faster to set up.

I already have the Xpan but im looking for a larger format that can take in some crazy resolution for fine printing.

Any suggestions? or which one is better the Shen Hao (pic related) or the GX617?

a6500 vs a7 II

No.3061635 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Hey folks,

I'm looking to purchase a new Sony Mirrorless camera to do cosplay photography with this summer. I've got a budget of roughly $2000 to spend on a new camera body plus whatever lenses I can squeeze in with the remainder.

So far I've narrowed it down to the a6500 or the a7 II. I had been waiting to see if Sony would announce an a7 III, but instead we've got the new a9 which while godly, is way out of my price range and overkill for my needs.

While there are some obvious big differences between the two bodies, I'd like to hear your reasoning for why I should choose one over the other. I'd also really appreciate some recommendations for what sort of glass I should try and get for either, keeping my main use case in mind.

I've already got an E 4.5-6.3/55-210 OSS and an E 3.5-5.6/PZ 16-50 OSS available to use. I've hardly ever had a good chance to make use of the 55-210. When it comes to lenses I don't really know what to look for. Advice in this area would be greatly appreciated!

Just out of curiosity, how many of you DON'T publicly share your work on social media?

Do any of you just keep your work on your computer for your own recollection?

In New Zealand an annual photography competition is held each year by D-Photo Magazine.

Today I entered my entry in the junior category as part of the "Siamese" Collection I'm making.

If anyone could hop over and find my photo and give it a vote, it would be greatly appreciated.
