There is nothing worse than a photography midwit

No.3829153 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Has anyone else noticed how the stupidest people are relatively easy to spot and ignore, and the smartest people are also easy to reason with, but the half-educated, pseudo-intellectuals who have gotten a hold of some interesting factoid and become irrationally obsessed with it are the most annoying? Pic related is a pretty good illustration of how these "conversations" usually go. Let's take a look at some of the common calling cards of the photography midwit:

>canon "banding"/"chroma noise"
Some people saw a severely underexposed image taken with a 5DII that was badly processed in Lightroom and they think that this has any relevance to normal photography. The number of times you'll be underexposing photos by 5 stops with the intention of pushing shadows in Lightroom is rare. You can go your entire life without needing to do it. Newbies see midwits getting emotional about the subject and they get very confused.

>sony "colors are bad"
This means literally nothing, since you should always be shooting in raw.

>fujifilm "worms"
The number of examples I've seen posted showing this almost exceeds the number of shots I took with the Fuji I used to own, from which I saw zero shots displaying "worms." I think you actually have to slide the sharpness slider to 100 in order for the worms to show up, but I honestly don't know and I have to take people's word that the example photos they post are genuine. There are many reasons to avoid Fuji; this is not one of them.

>nikon "is going out of business"
Just because they closed a Japanese factory doesn't mean they are going out of business. They already made most of their lenses abroad. Now they will merely make all of their products abroad. Nikon cameras will continue to be around for a long time.

>pentax "is a dead brand"
Pentax was simply bought out by Ricoh, but Ricoh is doing fine financially and plans to continue to make, and even update, these lenses and cameras. They just do it on a slower schedule.

I want to start taking photos and videos of the night time city (pic related is taken on phone which is evidently bad), anyone have recommendations of what camera/lens to get? What should I keep in mind (other than getting a tripod)?

If you don't have as full frame camera, you're not a photographer

>make post there
>4 days no replies

>make a new thread
>it gets a lot of traction with thoughtful answers
>people are able to ask further questions or add to the discussion with their experience
>reades can go through the thread and pick up knowledge that they otherwise wouldn't have gotten
>everyone leaves smarter and happier and more satisfied with the experience
>seething autist complainer "ask in the specific thread" faggots stay mad because their 9 day old thread of snapshits of under saturated leaves with white borders where they had an argument with another autist about how using -4 on the saturation slider conveys a stronger artistic message then -6 gets archived

FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING FAGGOT I FUCKING HATE YOU SO FUCKING MUCH I HOPE YOUR LENSES WILL FOREVER BE SMUDGED, KEEP SHITTING UP THE BOARD WITH PHOTOS OF PEBBLES THAT YOU TOOK ON YOUR WAY TO A GAY NIGGER ORGY YOU WALKING BIRTH CONTROL AD

Photography will always be gear centric even when it's not, and unless you are taking photos with some obscure fucking pinhole camera you have no right to complain about it.
