Found a Hassleblad 500c/m from 1988 MINT CONDITION. Includes 80mm lens, 2 film backs, waist level and prism viewfinder, original leather strap and original boxes and manuals. Should I pull the trigger and but it? Asking price is $2000
Excuse me, 2000? I think it's way too expensive for what you are getting even though prices have inflated because of youtube. I do appreciate it having a waist level viewfinder but I wouldn't pay over 1200,- Unless you are jumping for one in mint condition and don't see a lot of Hasselblads being offered wherever you are I would negotiate for a lower price or wait for a better deal. But hey, that's me.
Buy it, but never use it.
Store it in a safe place and give it about 10 years, it will be worth about 10K. Film is dead. Medium format is awkward, expensive and no one gives a shit about if you took a picture on your phone or on some "medium format" camera. >b-buh it's got a big negative so that means... YAWN. But it, store it, sell it.
it's average to high. probably worth it if it's new in the box.
I have never paid more than $600 for a 500c/m
How about that time a hasselblad showed up in King of the Hill
Why take pictures when it's all about the video?
videos are made of pictures so fuck off
Why post pictures when it's all about the video
So you it admit it's all about the video
You mean one of the biggest youtube memes of the 21st century? People who think Collier is a genius at music are people who are mediocre most music themselves, or praise Collier to ride on the coattails of his meme God status (a la Adam Neely comes to mind). I still remember laughing my ass off watching a bunch of retarded students marvel at him explaining how he modulated to a half sharp G...wow microtonality is like...wow it's like notes between the keys on the piano, whoa! Yeah real fucking incredible, he modulated to a single note in 24ET and back again...what a fucking revelation.
Absolute meme with one of the worst "posh" singing voices ever...
With Medium Format cameras being around I'm curious what the purpose of Full Frame sensor is. They lack the image quality and dynamic range for pro work but are also less portable and unsuitable for enthusiast photographers.
So what niche do they fill? People that try to scam people with fake pro work?
Just shoot multiexposure bracketing and blend in post, bro.
and monitors too
>>3682993 >just hdr bro
Wow I didn’t know hdr was a thing darn this whole time I could have been shooting digital if only I had known.
>>3682943 >shooting photos
>>3682199 >these cameras are three times as big >posts a photo showing its not even twice as big
Does anyone have good resources/tutorials on post processing and color grading in particular?
I've been doing photography for a few years now, got more than a few shots that I consider decent. My problem is consistency in editing, this is especially obvious in photos from the same set. I'd like to be able to show my photos/sets of photos and for them to make some sense as a whole. Inconsistent editing prevents that. I have very little theoretical knowledge, so ideally I would like something that covers the topic from cover to cover. Can be videos, books, free or not. I've had a hard time finding reliable resources, there's a lot of garbage out there for people who want to make their photos look appealing for instagral. This is not what I'm looking for, I'm looking for the tools that will allow me to create the images I want to create and find my "style". Cheers
watch the videos on the capture one youtube channel
The picture is mostly for example. I am poor film camera (I shoot on film only because 1-2 rolls of film per month is cheaper than monthly loan for a decent digital camera) user/looser who has a very cheap lens that's been infamously known hor huge light absorbation - lens flares appear even with lens hood being put (as seen on tape deck), and aperture is only f/2.2-f/22 which makes it very hard to make a decent picture with natural light only when the weather is not sunny.(Industar 26m 50mm, Soviet Leica M39) What tricks can I use to minimize such problems, except killng myself?
If you are not saying this ironically, I must say that Soviet Leica M39 is incompatable with regular Leica M39 because of two reasons - the mount is slightly different and soviet Leica clones are too cheap and not an engineering masterpiece, so instead of sophisticated button rangefinder mechanisms of Leicas, it has little lever with mirrors attached. Use soviet lenses on non-soviet rangefinder cameras only focusing manually, without using rangefinder - thing will lie to you
i have no idea what you just said. i would stick this onto a mirrorless camera with focus peaking
Alright, there should be no problem then
not lens flare
you have holes in one or both of your shutter curtains. the rubberized fabric dries out and cracks. you can fix small ones with a dab of white glue mixed with a dab of black acrylic paint over the hole.
Thanks man, you are a lifesaver
the guy in the video isn't gonna fuck you, calm down
I bet you lick the boots of every nigger who kicks your stupid ass
This. He even had a teleconverter.
thats a tranny
if you haven't read pic related then you should leave this board immediately
Read the original version (I'm French).
Tbh it doesn't really help with your photography on a day to day basis but it's still interesting as well as being an easy read (for Barthes lel).
Be ready though , Barthes is a memelord and the book itself is a meme.
The thing I get out of the book is much more about the fact that the artistic value of photography is about the support itself (film) than what's printed on it.
Punctum is just another way of saying :
>idk I kinda like it , feels familiar
So is the Quran. Do you read that in translation?
mate its fucking impossible to read. i hate all this pretentious abstract speak where nothing is communicated, just vague impulses
I've read S/Z. That's was enough.
The important thing is that Barthes expands on a Proustian view of photography, and shoots holes in Benjamin's view that the reproduction diminishes the essence of a work. Marshall McLuhan takes it even further.
Start with Berger, Ways of Seeing - it's a good introduction
sontag on photography - it's shit but will help you get your feet wet
Where can I find a lighting system like the showroom renders from need for speed heat? Or a system that could give a similar effect?
And worry about storage, breakage and procentage? This shit is rent only. Only buy if you're having logistics to rent out yourself.
Nice choice of car.
This. Don't invest in the expensive lights, unless you plan to rent them out. Anyway it's not the best idea, because it's easier to rent the whole package from the rental house.
You have no idea how long I've been trying to replicate this.
It is possible but it will be expensive.
>You would need a metal shop or wood shop to make you the frames (unless you are handy with tools you can make it yourself). >For the lights, there is a company called "Quasar Science" that makes LEDs just like that but they are $80 per light and they sell the controllers and power cords desperately.
A decent set up like the image would probably set you back about $3k-$5k
This man gets it
The frames are the hardest part. Not too worried about the skybox led's
What are /p/'s thoughts/opinions on Driely Carter? Dare I say it, she's our girl.
You. Have. To. Go. Back.
Never heard of her.
>>3683278 >You. Have. To. Go. Back.
Actually. You're Just. A. Little. Pissbaby.
Lead by example.
Tell me why you haven't sold all your gear and bought the best camera out there?
>best focal length >classic negative film simulation, best sooc jpegs >easy to bring anywhere you go >no more gas problems
It should have been fully weather sealed out of the box, but anyway. FWIW I use my X-H1 in mountain rain regularly and it doesn't give a shit.
Yeah man you’re literally the target market for it, you’ll have a great time with an X100
Oh yeah, I've used my X-T2 with their WR lenses in some pretty solid rain and it's fine. It's just my only concern with the V as I damaged my 14mm in the rain once. I'm a little overprotective of my F as such.
This image makes the iphone look like a good deal.
But that's not why we're here.
