Realistically.. How much smaller could a 70-200 f/2.8 lens be for mirrorless?
The Sony 70-200 f/4 for the a7 camera seems to be on par size wise to the Canon 70-200 f/4...
I am really interested by this so if anyone has one or has tried one can you let me know? I am just not sure why people want such small camera bodies (a7 series) if the lenses are still so fucking huge.. Who would want an a7 with Canon/Nikon size 70-200 on the front???
>Who would want an a7 with Canon/Nikon size 70-200 on the front?
People who fell like they must have the latest and greatest of everything no matter how menial the advantage. Besides some guy on a camera blog said Sony was a game changer and another guy on Reddit agreed so it MUST be true.
>>2701498 >mirrorless systems will deprecate DSLRs And this is where you are wrong. EVFs are not magic, it is a simple substitute for a missing optical system. Also sensor integrated PDAF is nowhere near and cannot be as accurate as a complete optical PDAF system. The mirrorbox is here to stay, no matter how deep are your delusions and your superiority complex. But to see all this you need to be educated in engineering and university level of physics. It simply cannot be expected from an average... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm considering getting it as a landscape / astrophotography lens since my 24-70mm f2.8 isn't as wide or as open as I'd like it to be. I was also looking at some of the Samyang / Rokinon primes which were a lot cheaper, but I fear 14mm is too wide, and I don't see much point in getting a 24mm f1.4 since I have that angle already (and I'm going to be doing landscape more than astrophotography so I doubt it's worth it). So, do you think the 20mm f1.4 meets the bill? What do you lenses does /p/... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I mostly shoot film, and I also have an OM-D EM-5 with an ok but not great 45mm prime, but I want to get a DSLR to pick up some basic portrait jobs. I was thinking about getting a Canon 5D and a nice 50 1.8 as that seems to be the most affordable way into quality FF. I could also probably swing an 85 1.8.
Is the 5D still a respectable camera or would that just be a waste of money at this point, it being 10 years old and all?
Hey /p/, I recently went to San Francisco and decided it would be fun to mess around with my friend's camera. This is my first time ever using a camera other than my phone, so I know i didn't use everything correctly, but I feel I took some alright shots. Any feedback; positive or negative, would be greatly appriciated.
With early digital cameras I always tried to optimize my ISO usage religiously, as pushing a stop higher usually meant terrible things, but with today's modern sensors it's no problem to shoot at 400-1600 and expect little to no degradation.
My girlfriend wants a camera for Christmas and I'm looking for help/suggestions on what to get her as I'm clueless on the subject.
Right now she uses her Galaxy S5 to take photos on. She's not got a lot of experience at using proper cameras so preferably doesn't want anything too complicated to use.
However, I don't want to get her something that's going to be obsolete a year after buying it. So preferably looking for something that's got potential should she want to pursue photography more seriously.
The budget I have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
get her a cheap film camera (something full manual. a Pentax K1000 is a great beginner camera and quite cheap) and a variety of different film she can experiment with. then with the leftover money pay for her to attend some brief local course on beginner photography (& darkroom work maybe).
she'd probably really appreciate that and it's a lot more thoughtful and romantic than buying a cheap dslr that will absolutely be obsolete very quickly. you could even attend the course together and make it a date thing.
How silly would it be to invest in a new Pentax setup when the K1 gets released?
Currently I shoot Nikon, I have been having some issues with Nikon for the last few months (D810 having to go back for repair 7 times in 2 months) I am seriously contemplating a switch to CANON.. But am also thinking about giving Pentax a shot.. But am worried that giving Pentax a shot is basically throwing money into an already dead system..
Pentax has been said dead for some years and yet they are making money. I think they are stepping up their game with the 645Z and the K1. There will be better service options too. I heard the full frame is delayed because they have to fix some flaws and really want to deliver a good product. I would only change system if the price was right and it fulfills your needs.
I want to make some color photographs with black and white RGB filters like pic related. What's the best/cheapest option for color filters? I was going to try colored cellophane but it looks blurry as shit. Is it really worth spending $20 a peice for screw-on filters or is there a better way?
