i miss my cameras

No.3948585 ViewReplyOriginalReport
i sold my LXs about 5 years ago. i sold my Zeiss Ikon ZM a few years ago. I sold my leica m2 about a decade ago. i miss my cameras.

how do i cope with how expensive all these bodies are now. my LXs were 200 bucks each, the ikon was 400 at the time. the m2 was about 200 because it had a hole in it which was easily repaired by a chinese guy in SF.

i miss my cameras....

Prove that gear doesn't matter here in this thread.

Here's a few I've taken whilst walking around town the last week doing my usual errands.

Lumix chat

No.3930236 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Because there’s always other brands, but never Lumix.
What experience do you guys have with these? Anybody own one? Aside from the GH~ for vloggers, they rarely get a mention.
They seem a good quality product, and I’m sure Leica wouldn’t hop in bed with the first person that asked.
I’m not here to argue for or against, I’m just genuinely curious.

Any Ricoh GR + Fujifilm owners here? I need a Ricoh simulation recipe for my Wormji. I got memed into switching from Ricoh GR to a Fujifilm X100T and I hate Fuji colors & tonality in sooc jpegs. Unfortunately i've sold the GR to buy the X100T so i can't do any comparisons anymore.

Too good for the price

No.3950056 ViewReplyOriginalReport
There are still obsolete pocket cameras that I think are better than modern smartphones in picture quality.

When I was a kid I had some top of the line Powershot, I think it was A520. It's worth 10 bucks on a good day but the photos I took with it still look good.
Should I buy one?
Some more modern Powershots are absolute garbage and it's hard to tell from the number system which ones are solid.

Samsung NX2000 is also ridiculously but nobody talks about this camera or owns one. Beats the popular Nikon D3200 any day.

"I hope you've all gotten your 3rd booster shot" edition
All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

Quick FAQS
>what’s the best camera available on a “budget”?
The blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k
>>what’s a good beginner video camera?
Anything that works, shoots at least 1080p and preferably has interchangeable lenses. Any recommendation beyond that will cause arguments so read the fucking sticky if that isn't satisfactory.
>Can I use a zoom lens for video?
>Do I need cine lenses?
>Do I need 4k?
No. It will make your footage look sharper if it’s in focus, and it gives you breathing room in post. But 1080p is still absolutely fine
>Can someone tell me if my video is any good?
Yes, but be prepared to receive harsh criticism. If you're going to waste 5 minutes of our time with a shitty out-of-focus montage of nothing then we'll tell you that it's crap

4channer tries to become a pro photographer: the blog

No.3943550 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Hello there. I'm 22, been 5 years into photographing hobby, so finally I think I've got enough skill and gear to make this hobby a profession. In this thread I'll post everything related to this decision, including most of a photos that I'll shot commercial. Critique of my works and any advises appreciated (I'm channer for years, so feel free to mock me or advice kys).

My final goal is to raise at least 17K$ for student loans. I hope to do it in a year or two. The first lesser goal is to raise 130$ for a physical server, that will hold my money in form of bitcoins.

For a first stage I'll bomb local TG chats to find a people who wants to be shot for absolutely free. Thus, I'll make a portfolio. I hope to pass this stage and start asking money for my work in month or so. When I do, the early price will be 80$ per photo session.

What I already tried (and failed miserably).

- Invest money into advertising. Well, this is kinda logical to be done sooner or later, but at the point of year ago it was too soon. I've gotten zero clients and some harsh critique of my previous works. So, I learned to obtain a portfolio, and, as you can see from text above, this is what I'll do for a first stage.

- Offering local coffees, restaurants, etc. to shot their location. This was my friend's idea and it revealed to be terrible. I walked into 40 or even 50 locations, everywhere asking for a manager and offering my service, but got rejected in every single one.

- Investing money into «very serious» studio shooting with decorations and costumes. Epic fail because of the gear I had for the moment. What I learned from that attempt is to never trust cheap shitty gear, so now I invested some money into buying more serious stuff.

- Being film-only photographer. A most shitty idea that could came from my mind. What I learned from that is to buy a digutal body, so I did.

With all that experience of doing wrong, I hope I learned enough to finally make it right.

Wartime Looking Film

No.3942285 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hi, /p/, /k/ here. I went to a WWII reenactment a few weeks ago (D-Day Conneaut) and managed to take a ton of photos. Most were took on a Kodak 35RF, but I brought a Baby Brownie Special with some old 127 film along for the beach landings where I managed to take some cool snaps. I took this one with King's Royal 125 ASA Panchromatic, 1960s vintage, and IMO it looks like it could be an original. Aside from getting lucky again and stumbling across 50+ year old film, is there any way to get this effect these days? I'm hoping to use 35mm from not on since 127 is expensive as hell and doesn't have many exposures, but if I have to use 127 I'll see what I can do.
