So I am looking for a mid format camera. 6x6 and up.
I am mainly shooting street architecture. So I don't need to be able to focus quickly, but I need an accurate viewfinder. My main focal lengths are 21mm and 35mm. I don't really need fast lenses, but they have to be sharp and as distortion and abberation free as possible. Size isn't that important, but it should be handheldable comfortably. It should have an accurate light meter, I don't want to carry one around.
Any ideas? The mamiya 7 is currently my fav, but I don't know if there isn't a better/cheaper camera out there.
Filters: Resin vs Glass

Hello dear /p/hotographers,
I am new to photography. Although I want to go pro soon. I 've already ordered a 5DMiii so I can use for my new job (i started with a Nikon D50 and I 'm still with that)
Anyway the reason I make this thread is to ask more about the filters. So far I only use ND filters and I apply more colors if needed in PS.
I 've been considering to get some good square filters for my new camera, including NDs, and color filters.
I 've found in the interwebs this new company called 84.5 which has cheap filters but they seem good. They even got awarded.
Although those filters are made from resin and not glass. To be specific they 're made from CR-39.
My questions is this:
Considering I am not going to keep these filters for quite some time, should I buy the resin (CR-39) ones, or should I find glass filters?
Pros & Cons?
Thanks for any reply.

I have a bunch of friends with a lot of potential in a bikini, and I'd like to start doing swimsuit photography.
There doesn't seem to be much information online regarding tips/tricks, recommended styles of lenses, best lighting practices, etc.
Have any advice, /p/?

Hello /p/. I know pretty much nothing about Photography, I'm highly interested and got myself a Nikon D5200 together with the 18-105mm kit lense + a 70-300mm Tamron lense.
I love nature, animal and macro photography. I'll post some of the pictures I made during the last week where I tested the camera on sunny days in Parks around my hometown. I edited all pictures sligthly in PS (contrast + saturation).

This is a gearfag thread that won`t find its answer on Google, therefore I need the vast knowledge of some hardcore photographers like you guys in here
I want a camera to express my metrosexuality
Yes it will probably be used at cocktail parties and dorm room fun
Maybe some outside shots of homeless people
I wanted to get the 600D and the 18-55 F2.8, but thats much too manly, heavy and Darth Vader looking for my taste
I wouldve bought a Canon A-1, but I also need it to record video, so it sort of has to be digital
Anything else in this price bracket?
>inb4 paint the 600D pink
