Who do you side with, /p/?
Yeah, that situation makes sense. I have seen Tony's second video and Jared's video but never saw the original one from Tony.
The points Jared brought up from Tony's video made sense but maybe they were taken out of context.
What about the scenario where you don't want to bother with editing at all? Then looking for the camera with the best jpeg quality makes sense.

Some of us are just hobbyists and we like cameras and that’s about it. We like the tech side and of course imagability. But RAW only makes sense if you (as a hobbyist) also like editing a lot. Me, however, i don’t like post processing. I think photography is merely documenting nice scenes or getting creative with the manuality of camera. I should want the pictures to look exactly like what i saw in real life. If it’s beautiful then it’s beautiful. If it’s not, then there’s no point in taking pics of it. Or maybe i want the pictures to look unrealistically hipster like pic related, you know, to make people think i have cool taste.

found a FL 50mm 1.4 on offerup for 35$. from images it looks good. zero haze/scratches. According to seller its in working condition. I have a 50/1.8 FD. Wondering if theres any point in picking up a 1.4 i heard the 1.8 is actually sharper. im a poorfag shoud i just save up for the 55/1.2?
Get the 1.4 if you're not a pixel peeper or bokeh whore. It's the best compromise and sharpness at equivalent aperture such as f/2 will be practically the same.
Also fuck off to the gear thread.
You only need the 50mm f1.8
I mean those are typically worth around $80-100 so it would be stupid to not buy it. I’d offer $25. I currently own both and the 1.4 is quite a step up from the 1.8.
Is Cannon gonna die like Nikon? Are all camera manufacturers in trouble now that compact cameras are dead?
It's a joke about how the country is too poor to every send a man to the moon again and has to pay the Russians to get them into space.
buddy I've shot on a wide range of camera brands and Canon still sits in top 3 go back to your cool pix 3d son you done.
>>3192520 >4K in cheap cameras doesn't count as 4K.
We're talking about cameras from Sony and Panasonic that have 4K in $1000 price range. Ahd have had it to for over a year.
>>3192572 >nikon >canon >???
poorfag here. i have a canon t3i with two lenses, kit lens and 50mm prime and a tripod. How the fuck can i make money to get more gear with what i have? Is there something i can invest in that will enable me to make more money, ie: flashes, backdrops, a studio? Just a young boy in search of guidance
Unfortunately, your beat option is to get a day job and keep photography as a hobby. It’s very difficult to make money as a photographer unless you’re extremely skilled, extremely good at marketing yourself, or extremely lucky. The fact that you’re rockin’ a Rebel with kit and nifty fifty suggests you’re none of those.
If you’re in high school and have friends/ live in a decent sized city you can easily make bank just taking portraits/senior portraits. Lots of my friends do it, I haven’t bothered yet bc it feels like selling my soul but I’ve considered it lol
My friend literally took portraits on her Canon Txi or whatever the hell it was, it was the first rebel I think. She used a 50mm 1.8 and they looked fantastic.
i was in your spot when i was in high school. i took simple headshots of young folks and made music videos for like dumb rappers around town. do this and you will start to build a bad reel which will lead to more work which will lead to a better reel which will lead to money and gear. just be happy
Now In Color !
These are loosely themed but I've been sharpening my color skills, here's a dump of what I've got so far.
Actually I don't have a very good online presence, it's something I need to work on. I am publishing a zine of my past BW work very soon, though. Will post here
Can't tell if you're trolling. See
for what cameras I'm using. I use a tripod and a cable release at night.
Pretty nice, rest are meh
This is nice anon, but I agree with the aspect ratio thing.
Good stuff nontheless.
Ah that's alright then but I'll definitely check that zine out
Don't worry about
nobody on /p/ likes him and he has absolutely no knowledge about photography.
Thanks for all the comments guys, look forward to sharing some more work with ya'll in the future. final bump with bonus car pic
I gotta start by saying I could easily go on Google and find out what all I need (equipment and room essentials) to develop 35mm and 120 film, but I choose to go to /p/ because I know the majority of you will cut through the BS and give me good recommendations of quality enlargers, chemicals, etc.
SO, I have been hobby shooting film on a restored Hasselblad 500C and a Canon AE-1 I would need to drive about an hour and a half to a reputable place to develop my film and want to cut the driving cost. Time for my photography balls to drop and actually get my hands dirty, so.... What all do I need?
Ok starting of with the developing process.
Is there a different set of chemicals I need for B/W and Color? Is there a difference in equipment when developing slide film from negative film?
Just hit google you weird inept queer.
yes, black and white is easiest, and C41 color negative or E6 positive require much stricter control over temps, agitation, chemicals, etc.
Hey thanks a lot for the advice and list of things. As far as an intro class for developing, I'll look into that. Thanks for being decent and understanding!
Go fuck yourself. I came here because ^^^ those people knew their shit and wanted to help. If I wanted Google's advice I would have googled it. Thanks for contributing nothing, and adding nothing to /p/ degenerate.
Thanks for telling me the difference but if/ when I do start developing it will probably be with C41 to start. Thanks m'dude!
Google is ill-suited to these sorts of questions. He’s low level enough to not really know what to google for, if nothing else.
As far as a film camera, how does the Canon T50 fare? What about the Minolta X-370?
Basically I ended up getting pic related plus a second lot of shit plus bags + manuals for $50~. Camera bodies and lenses seem to be in decent shape. Haven't tested them yet as I have a small repair regarding batteries on both of them to sort out. This telescope lens next to the Canon looks like it'll be bitchin' though.

they're all shit.
for $50, it's ok.
Pretty good cameras. We are more interested in the pictures you take with them, though.
>>3192767 >We are more interested in the pictures you take with them, though.
Ha! where do you think you are?
What is /p/'s first camera that they start with?
Or I suppose this thing. But I didn't really use it for more than snapshits.
Dont know the model but it was an Argus. It has a separate rangefinder that sits in the hotshoe Pic related but maybe not exact model
Im a cellphone, and cheap digital photographer. People really like the pictures i take. Of all the years ive been taking pictures, i want to really get deeper into it. Would you consider me a beginner or novice still? Will a good camera make what im already able to do better?
Should i get an entry level camera, or something a little better?
Nikon d3200 with a couple kit lenses.
Wish I’d bought a prime lens to start out with, I spent over a year with those shitty zooms wondering why I couldn’t get good shots lmao. Thank god I bought a 35mm 1.8, that thing was fantastic.
Russian Smena (Cмeнa 8M) and it was great then. Lot of fun.
