I'm in the market for a Nikon D5500 and I've been looking all over the place to buy it for 600-700 dollars. I wont be able to buy it from any retailer like Best Buy or Nikon's website, as they sell for around 900 there, so I've gone on a hunt through the internet.
I have a few candidates so far and I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Apologies for any of my ignorance when discussing this topic/if this isn't really allowed on the board:
I first was wondering whether I should buy from DigiRev, as I have seen their videos and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
OP, buy your shit from Adorama, Amazon or B&H. Best Buy will price match. Cameras are a very narrow margin item and almost never go on sale, so if it seems like it's a ridiculously good deal, it's either a scam or an warranty-less grey market camera.
Hey /p/ I've just started developing my own film and I'm looking for a way to store / present them, I'd like to have placed in cards like the ones in the pic but I can't find out what they're called, anyone have any idea?
You're supposed to mount slides that way, they're positive photos that get mounted that way so you can put them in a projector to display them. If you are shooting slides and getting them developed at a lab then the lab would give them to you already mounted that way.
I assume you're shooting negative film, though. That's not mounted because projecting a negative would be silly because all the colors would be inverted. You're supposed to cut your film into strips of 6 to fit the roll into a sleeve like pic related. That keeps them safe and protected... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do pros really use Darktable and is it really the best free option out there for processing RAW at the moment? I've been playing around with it for an hour and it has been kind of frustrating to use compared to LR. Can't even get my exports to look the same as the preview.
I want to use LR but I'll be using my images for school and worried that someone will find out that I'm using a pirated copy (can't afford to buy it cuz no student discount). Is there any way to prevent someone from finding this out while also keeping EXIF data unaltered in my exported JPEGs?
>>2870720 We have to submit our work online and the instructor will put it through a site that is supposed to make sure that what we're turning in is our own work and I think pirated software use might be one of the things they check for too according to some of the kids in my class.
>>2870720 Jesus christ what a shitty jpeg conversion. Could it be your OS is a 32bit version instead of a 64bit?
If you have the chance test it out on a 64bit OS and post results, I'm quite interesting as it could be a great option to install ubuntu 64bit+latest darktable in a basic laptop with 4gbRAM; 2gHz dualcore processor for editing on the go (trips, train to work/uni, spare time in the library...or just a basic setup for poorfags).
Remove the top and bottom plate being careful not to break the flash sync wire, peel back the leatherette, and the lens sits on a board held in by a few screws. You'll run into trouble with the little rangefinder doohicky that pokes out the back of the lens, and the fact the the shutter is built in.
>>2870675 You probably could if you're mechanically minded. I've had my Yashica apart, but only to fix the POD (and to resolder the connections my dumb ass snapped). Do some maths and work out the flange distances before you gut the poor thing, you might not even be able to mount it on a 60D.
I'm sitting on the last day of my weekend, and I feel like I should be out there shooting something, but I'm not feeling anything in particular. Nothing in this neighborhood interests me. I've wasted an entire weekend, you know what I mean?
>>2870553 I feel the same way. I have fun when I'm out shooting, but I have difficulty convincing myself to actually leave my room. I would probably have an easier time if my photographer friends came with me, but they're always busy/not in the city when I want to shoot.
>>2870401 We clearly have too less photographs and photographers. It seems like - especially in the 1st world - nobody wants to this job anymore. So, it gets outsourced to people who really need the money and are still willing to do it. We can be happy about everyone who gets into photography nowadays and has a professional approach towards it, instead of just doing it for the money. There is a lack of interest but tho it is much needed ... oh wait, I meant geriatric care, not photography ... doh, I always mix them up .. sry.
>>2870571 seconded OP, if you're under 28, you might consider enlisting into the Air Force as Air Force Aerial combat photographer. It's one of the very few enlisted jobs with the opportunity to fly in some amazing aircraft that are off limits to everyone except pilots and crew. pic related
Well Im looking for a new mobile phone with a good camera, But Cheap, Arround 200/300$ So one of my options is Asus Zenfone 2 or the Asus Zenfone Zoom http://www.asus.com/us/Phone/ZenFone-Zoom-ZX551ML/ https://www.asus.com/Phone/ZenFone-2-Deluxe-Special-Edition/
>>2870046 those aren't good cameras. That F/2 is more like F/12 because the sensor is too small. And 13 MP on a fucking midget sensor gives terrible looking images. Then every phone lens is some wide angle <30mm piece of shit, when faces look horrible at less than 50mm, and no professional portrait photographer uses less than 85mm.
>>2869941 TopGear uses a shitload of them. them and pretty much every other action oriented TV show that puts cameras somewhere where they will likely get destroyed. a $300 gopro is much easier to lose than a $6500 Blackmagic camera.
As a photographer, they are what you use when you don't need the quality of a DSLR. As a sports videographer, they're great and significantly better than most of the competition, but unfortunately they suck at making budget cameras or branching out and so they're losing value. Only the future will show if they are as innovative as they tell us they are.
Are you stupid? There is no way that originality is not possible. There are literally an infinate way of doing things with multiple variables to change or ad to make something uniqiue. Especially in an ever evolving world of technology.
