Hey /p/
Managed to witness and capture the Aurora Borealis on Christmas morning. I'm a very amateur photographer and did my best to capture the lights but they were very faint and the light pollution was pretty crippling (I was in the middle of Reykjavik). How can I enhance the photos I did capture?

TL;DR How do I improve these pictures of the Northern Lights?
Retaking the pictures on another date isn't an option.
Cheers!

Get out from the fucking city
Get a much faster lens
Get a camera that can crank the ISO more
Shoot RAWdawg so you can fix it in post

I've never seen the AB myself so idk how fast it "moves" around. If it doesnt move very fast take longer exposures

This stuff should be obvious to you anon, are you just starting photography?

Hey /p/, I got a question.

What kind of cameras do professionals use to shoot photos? DSLR, point-and-shoot, or mirrorless?

All three.

DSLR's are most common.
>>
All three. DSLRs are more common because they're easier to build a system around.

I.E. you're doing a wedding and you want a bunch of remote flashes, to do it well you pretty much gotta go for a DSLR.

Many pros lately are switching to
>Do I need to handle heavy lenses? Am I going to be comfortable?
DSLR

>Heavy equipment isn't necessary? I'm on a tight schedule with a lot of space to travel?
Mirrorless

P&S are tricky. Many pros like them for some peculiar work, but they're niche cameras for niche works, when it comes to pro stuff. You could, say, do a quick fashion shoot in a very claustrophobic setting with an RX100 fitting where no DSLR ever could. Stuff like that.

Post New Gear and shit, also I got a short story and I'm in need of help

Got a new panasonic GH4 for christmas today, with a metabone adapter, and a fucking sigma 18-35 canon lens.

It worked with my 40 mm pancake, so it is suited for canon, just when I switched it, it jammed.

Hi, I'm willing to buy a video camera, semipro if I can and my budget is around 2300$.

I've thought about Canon C100 (but price) and Sony a7s (but rolling shutter, hate it.)

48 KB,
I have been wanting to get into photography for a while. I was gifted a Canon EOS Rebel T5 (not T5i). With the default 15-55mm lens.

I am incredibly happy and have already started taking shitty pics all over the house and off my balcony.

However, I do want a brutally honest answer. How good is this camera? Will this limit me in some way in the near future? What can I expect from this as I get better? Is it worth eventually (when I'm better) getting a new lens for this camera? Or will I need to upgrade the camera itself as a natural upgrading progression.

Thanks!

Good enough for your skill level
>Will this limit me in some way in the near future? What can I expect from this as I get better?
In the near future, no. Further on, yes. You'll know. Don't buy new gear just because you feel like you need an upgrade. Buy new gear when you feel constrained by your gear and you know exactly what's causing the constraint.

i have the canon 600d and honestly it's a fine camera
if you get some decent glass the images get pretty sharp.
yes ofcourse there's better cameras, but for every 1% of better quality yo pay 10% more in the cameraworld, so unless you've got a ton of money to throw around i don't suggest buying anything new unless you really NEED it, you can do all of the basic stuff with the kit lens and a simple camera.

this is just a personal opinion but i do recommend getting prime lenses if you want to get more artsy, the canon 24mm stm and canon 50mm f1.8...

Hey Anons on /p/
and Merry Christmas!
i got a Nikon coolpix 500
but the problem is that i am a retard.
I forgot to take the cover of before turning it on and now the screen only shows the error message >Turn the Camera off remove the cover and switch it back on.<
Obviously i already tried that.
when i turn it on the lense keeps moving back and forth and the message occurs.
I dont know what to do and thought someone may have had a smiliar experience.
Thanks for any suggestion in advance!

5 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

Sure it is. Especially if you like EVF.

But it's also kind of a dead end. A mount is dead man walking. OK If you can get it super cheap, and you're willing to buy cheapo Minolta era lenses, it's a fine choice.

There's a ton of way better cameras out there, maybe even in the price range. But it's not a piece of shit.

I want to get into astrophotography as a part time hobby, and have ordered the Celestron 6 SE to start with,
Along with the T-rings to mount my Canon 550D to it directly.
Is there anybody on here with a similar set up, any tips would be appreciated, I can't find much about it being used for photographgy.

Generally speaking, for photography you'll want an equatorial mount.
>>
>>2726481
The 6 SE has a wedge for it, how would I get on without one though? Just at first to get the hang of using it, would I still be able to get some decent shots?
>>
There are applications for phones to track stars, constellations, and such the issue is with deep magnification the objects are moving quickly relative to you so without the mount deeper astrophotography (galaxies fainter objects etc.) are much harder to do.

>asking about architecture photography
>visual acoustics screen grab for OP

It always kind of bums me out when someone's hoop dreams are so transparent and (probably) shallow.

Go assist a working photographer. No grouchy ass retired photographer is going to want to be your senpai (not a wordfilter), and it's not like there's a phone book full of them that you can just look up. It's relatively easy to find working photographers, however, and a few of them would probably be ecstatic...
