>Modern professional cameras produce images straight from the camera of such high quality that the need for adjustments in image-editing software is much less than in the past. Photographers and editors should strive to use as little post-processing as possible while adhering to our standards of image quality. All photographers should understand the limitations of their laptop screens and their working environments.

I like the instax wide. some years ago I got my gf some Polaroid 600. 4 exposures since then as the Impossible films suck. You're certainly better off with some instax if you don't care about the 'real polaroid look'.
I am leaving for a trip tomorrow and will bring my trusty A7. But I can't decide if I want to bring my Loxia 2/50 or borrow a Nokton 50/1.1. I really can't decide. I like the close focus of the Lox, but the Noct is so nice and bright... I am sorry if this shouldn't be outside the gear thread, I need opinions desperately.
>>2731312 It sounds like you have used the loxia a lot. unfamilliar gear can help you push yourself in other directions. also, what trip is this. if you are in a warm country, take the loxia. if its a cold country with lots of dark bars and people and indoor locations youll obvi be better off with a brighter lens.
>>2731317 >unfamilliar gear can help you push yourself in other directions. It's still a 50mm lens... it just gives more BOKEH. This is not a direction you should be trying to go in.... A tripod would be more beneficial.
>>2731984 >- how do I get gud? Practice, and shoot mindfully. Learn to open your eyes, and seek out interesting scenes, and THEN bring out your camera, rather than saying "I want to take a photo" and trying to force some boring shot of a center piece on your mom's diningroom table. Ask yourself "is this a photo that anyone is going to want to look at?" and be honest with yourself about the answer. >- is manual the best way to make unique-good looking shots? No. Manual is a tool, and has it's uses. None of the modes are objectively better than the others. Manual is useful in strange lighting situations, or when you're using strobes. In general, you should spend most of your time in P, Av or Tv. >- when is autofocus approriate? At all times where your AF system is able to lock reliably. You get no bonus points for manually focusing, and the risk of missing the shot is much higher. >- is everything Photoshopped to make things look good these days? Yes. As it should be. Capturing the photo in-camera is only half of the job. A complete photo has been corrected and polished up for presentation.
>>2731984 - how do I get gud? learning the technicalities from someone or online and going out and shooting the shit out of everything but with thought and consideration and not just snapshitting like you would with an iPhone
- is manual the best way to make unique-good looking shots? no, manual is useful for those situations where the camera isn't automatically doing what you want it to do, it's not an artistic tool understanding when manual is appropriate came to me after lots of shooting, initially...

Enjoy you cam, I had the 350D for a long time and I was completely satisfied (until I updated when I knew what I wanted).
>- how do I get gud? practice, read, rinse & repeat. The sticky is a good place to start, also I'd recommend reading Understand Exposure by Bryan Peterson to get down the basics of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. >- is manual the best way to make unique-good looking shots? it depends. >- when is autofocus approriate? always, unless you're...

>>2730645 Do you need the AF-D screw? Do you need the tilt screen? Do you need the top info panel? Do you need the more rugged construction?
How can you be indecisive? It's just yes or no questions.
> 50 1.4G Not really worth it over the 50 1.8G, extra money better spent elsewhere.
>Nikon D7200 50 1.8G Unless you know for certain you enjoy shooting only at a 75mm FoV, this is likely just going to be too restrictive for general... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Whatever the flavour of the month 27", ips, 2560x1440, korean monitor off ebay is and a spyder.
And use dvi or dp, not hdmi.
Theres very few actual panels made, the cheap korean stuff is identical where it counts. And personally i prefer not having a glutton of image calibration shit built into the monitor when a spyder will always give great results for colour.
