So im sort of a poor fag and looking
to buy my first camera. I went to my local pawn shop and have the opportunity of buying a:
Nikon D5100
D50
D60
Canon eos t3

I've got the VR I, it's not revolutionary or anything but it's pretty hard to complain about the results for the price. The VR's not bad and it helps a lot to get an extra stop or two to get maximum sharpness out of the lens.

Aquired a Nikon F55 through the usual (I'm fucking this thing out, you taking it saves me the 5 euro recycling fee) method for an old film camera.

Has anyone ever used one of these? It feels fairly entry-level - but it also has a lot more features than what I'm using atm. It feels fairly light in my hand and I amn't sure how robust it'll be.

It's bloody annoying that I can't rewind the film without putting power into it, but there is film in there.

Worth keeping, or worth looking for something else?

Film amuses me in weird ways. Mostly the reaction of other people to it.

Pic unrelated. I have an old Hi-Matic that does interesting things with film when I take it to events for shits and giggles.

It sometimes even gives good pictures.

Okay so I'm buying a D700 body tomorrow, and need a little advice on primes.

I really want to get a 35mm prime as I've always wanted one, and 35mm seems to be a perfect focal length for my style of shooting.
But the Nikkor 35 1.8G FX is a bit for out of my budget, would a used Sigma Art 35 1.4 be a good alternative?

D5100 easy pick, great camera, tilt screen is really nice to have, that's the one thing I miss. However, it doesn't have an AF motor, so you can't AF with older lenses (eg. D series), only with G series. Also, make sure the sensor is clean and the screen works.

>>2880608
nah don't bother, 17 is already ultra wide on full frame, more than enough to stand close to people, get the focus and get a decent zoom range.

>>2880633
what do you usually shoot?
I use 5d2, canon version of D700 but shittier in low light and a little more resolution. I shoot landscapes and getting a little into portraiture and whatnot, so if I had to pick three primes, I'd go for 100, 40, and 16. If I had to pick two, then 40 and 16. I'll suggest a couple others depending on what you shoot.

Top tip mate, don't buy cheap chinese tripods from unheard of brands, they are pieces of shit. Stick to well known brands and you'll save alot of money and wasted time.

What do you need out of the tripod? Do you travel alot and need something light and compact? Do you do studio work? How tall are you?

Tripods aren't something to cheap out on, you typically want to spend as much as you comfortably can. Give us your maximum budget and I'll see what I can find.

D7100 or D7200: $600 vs $1200 CAD

The price difference is enough that I could buy a 80-200/2.8D. Or an 80-200/2.8D and 60/2.8D if comparing to the D7200's new after tax price of $1500.

Glass is better than bodies, but I'm always going to wonder, will I miss the slightly improved AF, software improvements, NFC, and most importantly, buffer depth? I shoot motorsports, so the buffer depth can be important (but not as much as other sports). For $600, maybe I should just deal with shooting my long bursts in JPG or 1.3x 12-bit compressed with a fast card (reportedly capable of managing ~5FPS in this mode)?

What would you do?

Inb4 banding. Banding shows up after 4EV push, and only from the shadows. I dont really have the need for a 4EV push in most situations.

If you would rather have glass, get a D7000 and blow the rest on glass. They are super cheap now, and I had looked at the D7100 or the D7000 and went with the 7000 because I would have money left over for glass, picking up an 18-55 VR II today

Don't dream of a D500. When you realize you actually need one, you will buy one. Until then use the D7000/7100 whatever intermediate prosumer something, get a 80-400 or similar lens and go out shooting planes, sports, wildlife, whatever. You will do loads of photography with an older body and a good lens.

I'm new to photography, but I've thought about buying a Nikon D3300. I've found some deals on amazon, but is it worth it to buy a kit with an SD card or is it better to buy one on the side?

I've been looking at this one (it's in german, sorry):

Trust me, the 80-400mm is a much more useful zoom than the 200-500mm. Not much difference between 400mm and 500mm, but on the wider end you have the focal range of the 70-200mm.

I have a d7200 and these lenses:

35mm 1.8 AF-S DX
28mm 2.8 series E
135mm non-AI
35-85mm 4.0-5.6 AF

The last is currently my only zoom. It came on an N60 at the thrift store for $10.

The 135mm was inherited from my grandfather. I plan to get it converted so I can use on the d7200.

Is this enough? Do I need a better zoom?

I don't know Canon lenses specifically, but 24mm seems a bit wide for general use, as you put it. Not by a lot, but wider than what I would reach for if I didn't know what I was going to be shooting. You might try zooming your kit lens to 24mm and keeping it there for a while, see how you like the focal length before investing in it.

(I like a 35mm as a general purpose prime on my Nikon crop sensor camera.)

I would look into Bronicas instead, they are lighter and still superb IQ. I hiked innamountains for a total of 25 miles this weekend, my bronica setup weighs 27.5lbs. That includes:
body, wlf, 3 film backs, 3 lenses, tripod, filter kit, extra AA batteries (for the external battery pack) 8 rolls of film, notebook, domke f2 bag, light meter.

It's definitely heavy, but much lighter than the mamiya options.

Also, a TLR is fine too.

28mm f/2.8 AI-s or 24mm f/2.8 AI/AI-s?

On one hand, the 24 is supposedly pretty average while the 28 is probably the best manual focus wide lens that Nikon ever made. But I also have 28mm equivalent lenses already and I've never used a 24mm before so I'm sort of curious to try it. I used to own the 28mm and I really liked it, too. Has anybody owned both before?

They're very similar lenses as far as I'm aware.
I'd say the quality of the 24mm is just as good.
This is the 28mm.
For me, 24mm is getting on too wide for taking photos of people with. Wide angle distortion starts to define the picture, especially at close quarters. It's fine for scenes thou.

I've noticed a lot of people that shoot with a GR shoot in B&W.

Is that due to the B&W processing of the camera? As in, should I shoot RAW and process it myself or let the camera process it in JPEG?

I guess I could do RAW+, in case I want color, but I'm curious if letting the camera do B&W or doing it myself will have better results.

I'll keep the winner of the Sigma 12-24mm or the Canon 17-40mm. Then I'll compare it to the Tamron 15-30mm and pick which one comes out on top. I'll be taking everything into consideration though.

Already know that the Tamron will be a bitch to carry around and blind fire, but it should have the best optical performance. So it's a matter of finding which one will be the right one for me overall.

I shoot black and white raws, you get to see the black and white on your LCD but then you also have the full color information so that you can later do a proper color-filtered B&W conversion. B&W with the GR is popular for several reasons. Yes in part I think the images from it somehow are really nicely suited for making good black and white conversions, but it's also partly just that it's easy to immediately see in B&W with the LCD screen and partly muh grainy Daido street meme and stuff like that.

I don't think it'll suddenly make you any better at black and whites and I also definitely have absolutely nothing against shooting color with the GR, but yeah B&W does seem to come kind of naturally with this camera.

First, I'd like to say that I'm doing photography for myself to record and share memories with friends and family. Coming from a K-5II with IBIS, a DA 35mm, and 3 other manual focus lenses, I'm VERY tempted but still undecisive about getting an X-E2. Ideally, I'd be keeping the K-5II for any long events where I wouldn't be able to charge the Fuji or when I need something that looks more professional like school events. However, the Fuji just feels so much more fun to use. I haven't been bringing my Pentax because it's such a brick to carry when I'm hanging out with friends and I regret not being able to bring my camera. If it turns out that I'll never use the Pentax again because of how great the Fuji is, I'll probably just sell the Pentax and the 35mm. My plan is to get some old lenses and adapt them on the Fuji. You guys have any suggestions? Alternatives? I've shot on a film camera before and it's quite fun and interactive. I sometimes have more fun with it than my Pentax. Anyone have a similar experience?

I got the Canon 17-40mm and the Sigma 12-24mm for only $340 each so I'll be able to turn the loser over for decent dollarydoos anyway. Then Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC USD becomes another "cheap" lens.

I switched from Nikon to Fuji and love my system, but I'm not totally sure about the X-E2. It's a bit dated and lacks a lot of the improvements that make the newest generation of Fuji cameras great.

That said, I'd probably still take it over the K-5. It's certainly a much better platform for MF lenses than an APS-C DSLR, thanks to the EVF with its peaking and split image options, and it's not like Fuji's own lens selection is really any worse than Pentax's APS-C lineup. (Especially since the Pentax lineup has a lot of "duplication," while almost every Fuji lens fits a different niche.)

I'd definitely spend the extra and get the kit if you can, by the way, the 18-55 is really good. It's far from the average kit lens, much closer to things that other camera companies would only sell on their own, and it'll be a useful thing to have, especially since it covers a range that your MF glass probably doesn't. (I'd say it's worth having just as an 18mm 2.8.)

I say this every time as well, and people haven't come up with many answers.

I guess what people really mean is that for a given focal length, Fuji doesn't offer much choice, and you're stuck with current-gen first party glass. I can see how maybe the system would be hard for somebody on a tight budget, because there's pretty much no third-party support (aside from Zeiss, whose lenses cost more than Fuji's and aren't any better) and you don't have the oceans of older used glass that you get with Nikon or Canon.

I think Sigma would be quite smart to adapt their APS-C glass to Fuji, and I'm really surprised they haven't. I can see X-T2 and X-Pro2 owners being a prime market for their 1.8 zooms, since they've already proven they're willing to invest FF money into an APS-C system.

>>2881381
What system? It might be worth looking at Yongnuo or Godox for Canon or Nikon. If you're a Fujifag, though, the i40 is kind of the only game in town if you want a full-featured flash. (With High Speed Sync etc.)

>>2881393
I looked at it a few weeks ago and wasn't impressed. Their APS-C lineup is particularly bad, it's just a whole bunch of normal zooms and a handful of slow and overpriced primes (their 24mm 1.8 costs substantially more than Fuji's 23 1.4. The FF E-mount lineup is a bit better, but it's also got a lot of slow and overpriced lenses ($800 35mm f/2.8 wtf), and you're into a size and price range that puts them into competition with FF DSLRs, not other mirrorless systems.

Of course, like I said above, that kind of changes when you factor in 3rd party glass. Sigma has been killing it lately and Sony gets access to much of their lineup, though some of the coolest stuff still needs an adapter. (Like the 1.8 zooms, which for some reason are A-mount and not E-mount, despite A-mount basically being dead when they came out.)

I think you'll need a dedicated Sony flash if you want rear curtain sync etc., and I'm not sure that Yongnuo makes one.

However, Godox does, and they're still pretty affordable (Around $120.) They also have built-in TTL wireless and you can get a combo kit with a transmitter, which might be nice if you're into off-camera flash. I've heard really good things about their products, and I've been thinking about picking up one of their manual 2 speedlite + transmitter kits for my Fuji system.

Yea some of the G stuff is absurdly large.

But then if you are using G, size isn't an issue.

There are plenty of solid FE primes like the 28mm, 35mm and 55mm.

The 90mm macro prime, while somewhat large, beats even the Canon L equivalent in lens tests.

The thing that bugs me is that Sony's lens lineup just doesn't make sense. They make the same damn focal lengths over and over again, both in primes and zooms, while neglecting others.

I'm having trouble explaining this well, but it's like Sony looked at a list of top-selling glass from other brands and copied it. The problem is that that list contains variants of the same general niches over and over again, because 90% of buyers want a mid zoom and a tele zoom, but they don't all have the same budget. I guess it makes sense for Sony, since few of their buyers will ever delve deeper into the system than a couple of zooms anyway, but from my perspective as a serious photographer it really turns me off.

They also seem to make no attempt to make glass that's appropriate for their bodies strengths, either. It's absolutely insane to me that they made the smallest and lightest FF body out there, and then immediately threw their resources into giant zoom lenses that make you wonder why you didn't just buy a D810 or 5D instead. APS-C isn't much better, with the A6300 being an absolutely spectacular performer for action shooting, but with no attempt to make lenses that take advantage of it either. Again, it's like Sony's execs just based their decisions on sales sheets without considering anything else, like they saw that Canon and Nikon were selling tons of 24-70 2.8s and so they demanded that they have the same lenses.

I don't think people really think about this when they compare Sony and Fuji, and talk about Fuji's "limited" lens system. Fuji started by making one lens for every common focal length and application, and only once they were "done" did they start duplicating FLs. As it stands, Sony may make more lenses, but if you had an unlimited budget, it's Fuji who make more that you'd actually want to own at the same time.

>smallest and lightest FF body out there

All they do recently is release G and Zeis glass. There are barely any affordable lenses. Only one lens is remotely compact even (35 mm).

I am pretty sure the average price of FE mount lenses is well over $1000.

I mean I really love my a7ii body, but I find myself adapting non-native lenses more ofteb than native because they cost so fucking much.

It's all about physics really. It's impossible to make high-quality glass with AF, OSS and fast apertures for larger sensors. That's why their 24-70mm, 70-200mm and 85mm FF G Master lenses are so fucking massive, even bigger and heavier than Canon's offerings.

If you want compact lenses, go with vintage/MF lenses or slower apertures.

Hi /gear/,

I'm back here after a few weeks with my "new" camera. The advice was 'get anything you can for cheap, then learn and next time you'll know what you need'.


I currently own a d3000, with a 18-55 and a 55-200, and a tripod (tp 320 from Jessops). At the moment the things I know I'll want to do are:


Pictures of the stars and the like
Being able to priorize more the shutter speed
Wanna try macro
Wanna make long exposure shots during the day without burning the pic


I dont know exactly what I need to do that, but probably more lenses, another body... I've been told also to get a 50mm and have contradicting statements regarding to filters.

Do you have any idea about what should I aim for?

>>

Use only the M, A, S, P modes on the mode wheel. Forget about Auto and the various scene modes, those are for soccermoms and your friends if they want to try your "fancy pro camera".
Use A mode to control depth of field, higher value means narrower aperture and more DoF, lowest number means wide open, massive Bokeh shots.
Use S mode to control exposure time, 1/x seconds or full seconds. 1/2000s is fast shutter speed, freezes motion, needs more light, usually wider aperture. 1/60s or 1/30s are slower shutter speeds, blurs motion.
Longer exposures go up to 30s or indefinite in Bulb mode.

No one sane.

I think most peoples issue is with the fact Sony pretty much ONLY makes pro-lenses. Their FE pro line is fantastic. But their consumer line is lacking.

For lens under $500 you have the kit lens (actually pretty solid) the 28mm (good), the 35mm f2.8 (good and the only remotely compact FE lens) and the 50mm (shit).

We don't see anything like Canon's fantastic 40mm that only costs $100.

Have you thought about switching to an older model or are you dead-set on the E-M5II?

>>2881390
Do you know how adapting affects stopping down the lens when taking a shot? I'm kinda curious just for focusing sake.

>>2881388
Thing is, I'm worried this is more of a sidegrade rather than an upgrade. I know I'd LOVE the manual focus assists which has been one of my downfalls on the Pentax. Would you really say that it's dated even with the 4.00 update? It seems like a pretty competitive camera right now, but I guess I haven't had much exposure to it. Anyway, it seems like the best option would be to replace my K-5 and get the Fuji kit lens, while adapting my old lenses. Then, hopefully I can sell my K-5 for more than I got it for since I don't really use it anymore.

I need PDAF and weatherproofing since I mostly shoot wildlife. 600mm equivalent lens is also a must.
So EM5II is the bare minimum, EM1 would be the present gear equivalent regarding the body.

AF takes up the most space. Also Sony's design language makes the lenses look bigger.

>tfw Nikon will never again make AF-D sized lenses
>tfw the 35/2 and 28/2.8 will never receive AIS optics but with screwdrive AF
>>2881582
It's only dated in the sense that next generation AF has arrived in Fuji's flagship models, and that they've been using 16 MP sensors well into the 24 MP generation. Asides from those two points, the XE2 and XT10 are for all intents and purposes current generation cameras.

The question is how soon will it be before we see trickle down? I estimate Photokina next year, maybe CES 2018 if you're lucky.

The HD 55-300 is pretty much the best in the offerings in that zoom range and price.
There is the DA* 300 prime and the DA* 60-250 but at much higher price point.
Also Tamron 70-200/2.8 Macro and Sigma 70-200/2.8 OS HSM, also higher price point but not as high as the star lenses.

Question to anyone who had a 150-500 or 50-500 Bigma, preferably the OS HSM version:
Was the lens automatically recognized in Lightroom or did you have to choose it from the menu to do the profile corrections? For some reason it is recognized as a 12-24 lens instead of 50-500.

I currently use a D7000 and 80-200/2.8D and its a solid piece. I will say the only drawback Ive found is the small buffer on the D7k, but considering I paid about 330 USD for it, Im not really complaining. If buffer really does matter to you, I'd just go for the 7200 and be done with it.

If you have a K-3II or K-S2, it is better to wait for the 55-300 PLM. Collapsing design, fast and silent PLM AF, electromagnetic aperture control.
K-3 and before are cucked though, feels bad.

As long as you have a lightmeter and tripod you should be okay with any decent film camera and high ISO film but you really need to know how to use it though - framing and focusing are KEY and it's gonna take some time before you can do all of that to get the image you want.

This makes digital way more accessible, you get way more chances and instant image preview. Maybe look up an older dslr on your local ebay and a tripod too - you'll need a tripod cause it's dark and you'll be using slower shutter speed which will cause shakiness. Also it's great if you can get RAW files from the camera too. They let you pull out much more from the image in editing - makes things look way better. To get a film look on digital use lightroom and a nice VSCO preset.

t. not an expert so take everything with a grain of salt
