You should probably check the situation with software.
If the RAW format supported in the programs you use, etc.
Dunno about the price but get it, anon. it‘s a rare unicorn.
New glass for my p30n
>>3834747 >it's a real thumbnail
lmao just amazing
>>3835036 >it totally destroys the competition bruh
Toneh is in need of medication.
You fags convinced me to ditch my fuji for a more "serious" camera. An A7iii. Now I realize I probably should've just ungraded to an X-T3. I never thought I'd come to hate taking pictures but this snoy takes all the fun away from it. I want my hipster camera back.
>>3834244 >*vastly* better image quality
you must be a turboautist, because those look pretty comparable, with better contrast on sony, but better noise handling on the fuji.
>>3835034 >My Nikon V1 from 2011 can do this automatically, what were Sony thinking?
Automatically isn't the problem. The Sony also does it automatically. What I want is to be able to do it manually, for those times when the face-detection sensor in the viewfinder fails and either shows the view on the LCD when my eye's pressed against the viewfinder or shows the view on the EVF when I'm trying to compose something in the LCD and a shadow falls across the camera.
It happens surprisingly frequently and it's frustrating as hell when it does.
>>3834252 >Whether to use the viewfinder or the rear LCD as the primary display.
But you can assign this to a custom button
Don't know about the A7ii but the A7iii onwards you just push the little nipple to the side and it moves the AF box
Or just tap the screen
>>3835048 >But you can assign this to a custom button
Nope. You can't. Not on an A7II. In the menu for assigning functions to buttons, there's no setting to assign a button to let you change whether the EVF or LCD is the primary display.
If you think there is, I invite you to search the A7II manual online and find it for me.
But be mindful of the prophecies I foretold in
>>3834252 >>3835049 > but the A7iii onwards
That doesn't help me, because I have an A7II which doesn't have the AF point selection joystick and doesn't have a touchscreen.
Have a S1H and recently have freelancing money to upgrade. Should I sell it for a Sony, Canon, Blackmagic, or Red? If so, what camera should I get?
cine lenses are all manual because it gives you more control. with autofocus if your lens goes hunting or messes up the focus you have to redo the whole shot. it's just not worth the headache when you can just move your hand a little bit. so why bother with autofocus?
>>3834879 >so why bother with autofocus?
autofocus is for cringelords just shoot with your iphone at that point
Get a RED if you have access to clients that will pay the extra money to get RED footage, otherwise don't bother.
The native resolution of a 10mp file printed to 48" is going to be roughly 80ppi. Scaling it might hide the stair stepping/jaggies of individual pixels, but it's going to look soft as shit.
Fucking this. Sports pros/wedding photogs might be fine with 20-30mp. But big print landscape/fashion guys are shooting high resolution FF at the least, high rez MF backs or high rez LF film scans beyond that. That's 42mp or higher.
This the type of fag to say 480p upscaled to 720p is enough cause people watch on their cell phones anyway.
>85mp y tho
Name big print landscape/fashion guys...
I think there's noticeable difference when jumping in multiples of 2, kinda like a photo version of Moore's law.
But we've surely plateaued. We've had 36MP in 35mm in 2012, we haven't even doubled that in 10 years. Compare that in early days of digital where you'd get double res every couple years.
Cheese Luize I come back 9 months later and I swear it's still the same autistic poster doing the exact same thread have you really been doing this for years just consistently everyday somehow
i really do wonder if OP is mentally ill or very innocent.
Only professionals should be buying standalone cameras nowadays.
Hobbyists should just buy a decent phone, it has more features than just a camera and nowadays the camera on a phone is almost indistinguishable to that of a high end camera. It can even do great bokeh effects through the use of ai like in pic related Only down side is you can't change lenses but there are many settings and multi camera setups to fix this nowadays
honestly the greatest part about just having a decent phone, is 99% of people just want a nice camera that's going to get a decent shot of what ever is happening, they'll also always have their phone on them.
what if they take the dog for a walk with the kid and along the way they find a cute flower and the kid is being cute - they can just whip out their phone, take a shot, edit it if they feel inclined, then share it.
I'd rather keep my cheap Chinese phone, and carry a dedicated camera. Most people won't carry a camera with them when they take the dog for a walk, but everyone on this board will.
I bought my phone (Pixel 4a) because everyone said it was up there with the best phones for photography but it's still just really soft and relies for 100% on automated post production.
This for example has nothing done but a little crop and the quality already feels like it's been compressed and enlarged 20 times.
That fake bokeh looks terrible though
What's the cheapest way I can shoot at 1000mm+ focal length - ideally with OIS? I want to take detailed horizon shots from airplanes or the tops of mountains. Pic is a crop-in so not very detailed, but similar to what I'm going for
Bokeh is shit on a mirror lens, as is overall IQ (typically). If money is that big of a deal then P900 or P1000.
If you're attaching a mirror lens you're throwing away any large sensor IQ gains any way.
Main reason for mentioning mirror lenses is that plenty of telescopes are essentially mirror lenses anyway.
>>3834973 >What's the cheapest way
then you should have framed your question better, we can't read your mind retard
>>3834977 >Bokeh is shit on a mirror lens
you don't need or want Bokeh on horizon landscape photos
i'm not op you retard shit-ass
Does anyone use Android software to interface with their DSLR? Pic related looks like it only works with mirrorless (looking for a pirated version to confirm). I'd like to use an old Android device to manage photos i'm taking in real time, show a HUD with WB, ISO, shooting mode, bracketing, whatever is possible.
I have some cheap plastic hot shoe phone mount and a usb OTG cable and i'm trying to have the maximum amount of fun with them short of shoving them up my ass.
i use canon's proprietary software
Camera Connect? Just reading about that one, looks amazing. Even works with the 5D, whereas it looks like my D90 of the same vintage (albeit in a lower market segment) has been left out to dry
>>3834781 >Mark IV only
it literally says "for controlling your DSLR"
DSLR controller works with a lot of the old cameras like the 5d mk2 but not the 5d mk1

Ohhh, I've got a few ideas for this competition!
out of comp bumping
What are the main limitations of old (~1999-2005) professional DSLRs?

I've shot school sports games with an EOS 400D. Talk about slow.
