what's up /p/, my camera got stolen with about 600 photos of sweden a month ago and now I finally have the money back. I had a simple D3100 with a friend's lens on it, looking for a bigger caliber now though. I have about 600-1000 bucks to spend on a camera and will have more for a lens in the coming months. I'd like to stay digital if possible because film takes a shitload if time to process in my town compared to the mere minutes I need to export my RAWs. What would you recommend me for travelling purposes/low light photos? (say parties, hikes, camping,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello /p/. How do I become a master of exposure and a steady hand? I am an aspiring filmmaker and am going to be shooting a lot of stuff on my own so I need to improve in all aspects of photography. I've been fooling around with a DSLR for about a year now and still cannot manage to get where I want to be in terms of quality. No matter what I do, it seems that something is always getting blown out.
And whenever I try to take still photos, they end up blurry no matter what shutter speed I shoot at. Pls no bully for the love of god, I want to get better at this but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2719170 > master of exposure Any decent DSLR / MILC knows the basics. If you bought something with decent DR, you can also fix this to a tremendous amount in post, no problem.
> and a steady hand Decent IS, and a gyro if necessary? Or just a tripod or monopod.
1/200 - 1/300 or whatever also does the trick, if that's acceptable for shooting conditions present and your camera/lens combo.
> And whenever I try to take still photos, they end up blurry no matter what shutter speed I shoot at. They shouldn't in general, but maybe you're shooting with a cheap craptastic lens.
Actually, most lenses are relatively poor when you shoot them wide open, for that not to be the case you usually pay a pretty hefty premium. Take them 1-2 stops down and the good ones are near perfectly sharp.
Imagine you're going on 4 week trip. There will be a mixture of all types of Photography and you need to pack light. But you still want to bring a DSLR. What is the minimum setup that you can live with?
>>2719009 >you need to pack light. But you still want to bring a DSLR Well there's your first mistake. I'd bring an APS-C mirrorless and a kit lens. if I'm done packing and still have a bit of weight and space left, I'd throw in a normal/wide fast prime.
>committee wants a new camera >set budget of 500 dollarydoos >They need something high quality and easy to use >recommend Sony RX-100 >They go to Camera House and sales guy talks them into buying a Pentax KS1 Digital SLR >get this email
"So, we got our new camera
We ended up however going for the Pentax KS1 Digital SLR as I compared the two, and this was cheaper too!
Is there a day either tomorrow or next week you could drop in to set it up for us!?
We are having difficulty understanding how to set it!!!
Once it’s set it will just be a matter of point and shoot for us"
>Some of You Guys are Alright, Don’t go to Camera House Tomorrow
>>2718998 >so many stories Share. >I push Sony more than anything are there any digital point and shoots that even compete with the RX series?
I did work at Camera House in Leederville for one day. What a peice of shit. Only a couple of people there even seemed to know what photography was. The rest were just retards that spewed random facts like Megapixel counts and shit. I must have seen at least three customers come in the first hour to complain... Comment too long.

I only use public transportation, so I'll often encounter something that looks at least semi-interesting on my commutes that take me through the city center. Mostly people doing stuff, like busking, carrying too much or weird stuff, dozing off in odd places... Also interesting objects like drawings on walls and stuff, broken things...
>tfw gf originally suggested I try street when I'd just started to take pictures >tfw supportive photog gf
>>2718920 I rarely commute and use my car all the time. Whenever I do street I use a film slr so when it gets stolen its okay as compared to using my dslr or phone. There are a lot of thieves nowadays in this city especially since it is almost Christmas.
I hope I have a supportive gf like you man. I'll never get tired of taking iur pictures together like we are in our engagement shoot. Whenever I see couples on the street I feel a bit if loneliness.
I'm an amateur photographer with a very needy job and I was wondering : do you often shoot while being wasted ?
For me, it's the case, because I'm shit at street photo and the only time I can take something worthwhile is during social gatherings. The first times, a large batch of them was a blurry mess, but I learned with a lot of training some instincts to get some nice results.
What is your experience ? Also, post the drunk pictures you want to share.
>>2718437 That thread revolves mostly around lulz w33d 420 xdxd stuff. This pertains strictly to humanity's second oldest drug.
>>2718430 I needed motivation to cycle a few miles in a freezing night and lug my tripod and valuable lenses in a cemetary, so getting drunk was a good general numbing candidate. I did ballpark bulb exposures on very forgiving film so it worked out allright.
