I'm in the market for a Leica, and it's come down to either an M8 now or save up more and get an M9. Is there really much of a difference between both of them aside from the extra 8MP the M9 has and and the full frame sensor compared to the M8's crop? How much of an increase in image quality/ color rendering is there from the M8 to the M9? And is the M8 too dated, or is it still a good camera to use?
I'm looking to buy a digital Leica because I got a chance to use one of my photography teacher's M240 and I really enjoyed using it. I have a couple film rangefinders prefer them to my SLR's for the type of shooting I do.
I'm not really bothered by the crop factor. I started photography with a 60D and then got a 5D mkii and full frame was nice and everything but I ended up going back to crop when I went mirrorless with my current camera, a Fuji X-T1.
>>2781468 If you already have film rangefinders and you enjoyed the Leica digital then go for the M8 if crop factor really doesn't bother you. I'd personally save up for the M9. If you get the M8 then make sure to pick up some IR filters too.
If you're looking for an M mount digital camera with an OVF then it may be worth considering a Fuji X-Pro/X-Pro2 with the M adapter. You'll also have the shutter speed dial and a higher ISO range if those meet your shooting requirements. It all depends... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I was recently at a rodeo snapping some photos chatting it up with another guy who was also there, shooting just for fun or for his photography business or something.
When the event finished and I was heading out, concluding the conversation with the guy, some random woman swooped in and interrupted us and asked me for my card and if I could send her some of the photos. She asked the same of him.
I am not a professional photographer, I gave her one of my personal cards though, and told her to email me.
What is the appropriate response to tell this woman?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2779593 But why? What if this lady knits or makes model sailboats in bottles as a hobby,and I just happened to stumble upon her while she is engaging in said hobby. Should that entitle me to the fruits of the hobby,just because?

This is really exciting. Cinestill has struck a deal with Kodak to let them spool Vision3 film in medium format rolls and sheets. If the campaign reaches 190k in 12 hours, 50D will be available from the very beginning.
>>2778641 >Cinestill has struck a deal with Kodak to let them spool Vision3 film in medium format rolls and sheets that's not really true from my understanding.
from their faq: >It is important to note that CineSill is NOT simply "repackaged" motion picture film. We utilize the same advanced technology in Motion Picture emulsion to create a still photography film which is modified for C-41 processing. This amazing material is converted to a different format and suitable for C-41 chemistry. Compared to the original motion picture stock, CineStill 800T C-41 responds with a slightly increased gamma yielding an 800 ISO Tungsten balanced negative, which is optimized for optical and hybrid still photography processes.
>>2778651 I assume it's true, due to this, also from their FAQ:
Q: Is cinestill 120 converted 70mm?
A: CineStill 120 will be manufactured from a large special order material and will not have perforations. We converted and slit down 65mm material for Beta Testing our prototype process. The rolls of film we produced this way are the Beta Test rolls we are giving away before fulfillment of the campaign.
I'm going to be going to a family wedding soon and don't know if I should bring my camera or not. I know there will be a paid pro there. I don't plan on moving and shit to get the shot. Just casual photos of family and what not. What would be proper in this situation?
>>2776842 I'd say contact the relatives organising it and ask if it's alright to grab a few shots and offer to email them a few choice ones or upload them to facebook, just say you're doing it for practice. They'll inevitably just be like "shit yeah, free photos" anyway. Doubt it'll be an issue.
Did I fuck up? I thought it was a pretty good deal for what it comes with. For $200 + free shipping I got the Metered prism finder, 120 back, 90mm lens, fancy little camera strap and of course the body that's all in decent shape.
Will I regret this decision on purchasing my first medium format camera? Or will I enjoy it for years to come?
If you already have a good tripod you're set, just get some cheap cable releases and you've got a great studio setup. It will probably be much bigger and heavier than you thought it would be especially with the prism finder. I got a tlr after using the rb67 a lot, I only use the rb67 in the studio now.
>>2769001 Yeah I heard they weigh in at around 7 pounds.. That's fucking heavy. But I already have a decent tripod and plan on using it for landscape / architectural along with some studio use now that I have access to one. The only thing I'll really have to learn is the flash. Is it possible to sync this camera up to any studio flash?
The glass will block a lot of UV, but leaving the glasses out in the sun would do the same thing. You don't have to buy a UV light source. If fungus is a problem, store gear inside waterproof/ziploc bags with desiccants.
Hello /p/, I was asked the other day to create a list of all the essential things when it comes to making a time lapse. I thought this would be a easy job, it turns out I underestimated this challenge.
What I started out with in my planning: - GoPro Hero 4 silver - 128GB SD card
But I just received a mail with the total time: - 115 days
Form what I've read the gopro will take picture ranging from 5 MB to 7 MB(estimated) so I calculated and I got this:
and if we say that every picture is 6 MB then... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2777042 Think about it for a second. Where on earth would you present 165600 frames? At 24 fps it's 6900 seconds, a.k.a. almost a two hour movie of your amazing timelapse. Question is, is this what you want to create? I honestly doubt it, so in case you want a steady timelapse over 115 days (with day and night flicker included) for a more reasonable timeframe, say 2 minutes you need to take 60 times fewer pictures = one an hour. I doubt a Gopro is the right tool for that job - especially keeping in mind the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I guess that I should've added more information to my initial question. We're going to film a house being built so if it would be possible to make something that took pictures from 8am to 4pm that would be the best.
By doing so I would have roughly 55000 pictures.
the power wouldn't be a problem as it could be connected to a power outlet throughout the project.
