How do I say no to someone if I don't want to shoot with them because they're fat or don't put any effort in their looks but still want to get photos done.
Doing this for free/tips btw, still just trying to git gud right now but I get a decent amount of people who hit me up to want to shoot, if I say no someone else will most likely be able to fill that time slot anyway.

Better option would be to charge them. Shooting ugly and fat people is part of portraiture though, it's as good practice as anyone else"

"I was trying to shoot an action shot of my friend skateboarding, but got this ghosting/blur on it. I know it's not a good image, it was my first time shooting action, but how can I set my camera/flash settings to freeze the action without the blur? What's causing the blur? I was shooting at f/3.5, 1/30s, ISO 320, 14mm focal lenth, and a camera mounted speedlight/flash. Is it possible to get the ambient light to give context to the shot and freeze the action with the flash? Do I need a flash that cuts off sharply when it's peak is reached?(with the T.1/T.5 values and such?) I was using a cheap Neewer NW-561 speedlight/flash. Thanks for any help.

">>3312588
>Is it possible to get the ambient light to give context to the shot and freeze the action with the flash?
Not really. If the ambient is bright enough to clearly record the background, it'll also record motion blur on your subject.

You can up the ISO and shutter speed to mitigate that a bit, but obviously the max sync speed of your camera is the upper bound.

The blurring is definitely not caused by the flash duration. Even shitty flashes, and at full power, they have a duration around 1/250-1/500, and much faster for lower power settings.
You can see that on your photo, the shoes' outline and everything is really sharp and well defined the moment the flash fired. Everything else is motion blur by the slow shutter speed.

If you want a really frozen motion and also discernible background, make a composite.
- one shot where you try to block ambient as much as possible, i.e. max flash sync shutter speed and base iso, or a bit higher ISO to drop the flash power setting a notch
- one shot without your friend, just the background, at whatever settings make it the right brightness for you

Then mask and overlay them into one composite photo."

">>3312588
It's blurring because your shutter speed is 1/30 dude. That's pretty much as slow a shutter speed as you can get before it becomes unusable handheld. Blurring should stop once you pass 1/125 and beyond.

With action shots like that, shutter speed is king. Boost your ISO to 400-1600 and stick your camera in P mode. Your camera will then max out shutter speed in order to control your exposure. You'll get much sharper images that way with no blur. I stick to ISO 800 for street action personally and move to 1600 for nights and indoors."

">>3312588
Hold the camera still, don't pan to follow the subject. Double your ISO and double the shutter speed and that'll easily be handholdable (1/30 for a 28mm effective is pushing it), halve the flash power to compensate (if it's not automatic) with the side bonus of having an even shorter flash duration.

You'll still have some motion in the feet and legs but it'll be less than at 1/30 and at least the rest of the scene will be focused. That might actually result in a better shot, showing some motion required to get the trick."

Completely freezing a skater mid trick takes at least 1/500 on your shutter, ideally 1/1000. Pro skate photographers in the film days always used pro SLR’s or Hasselblads purely for the high flash sync speeds.

You can utilize blur well with an ultra wide lens if you’re comfortable getting very close, otherwise do your best to eliminate it."

"So I decided to get back into photography after using an Olympus point and shoot for years. I wanted a 70D, but found a good deal on a Rebel T3 with the EF-S 18-55 IS II kit lens. Paid $200 after tax with a 6 month warranty and took it home. Over the years I've acquired something like 8-10 film cameras with 2-3 lenses each going back to the 1950's production wise, but I mostly have old Canon FL/FD lenses. Should I even bother with getting an adapter to run these old lenses on my T3? I see the cheap ass adapters on ebay but if there's something nicer I'd consider messing around with it. I remember reading that image quality is greatly degraded with those adapters. My old Olympus was so limited in features that I was never able to really learn how to properly adjust f-stops and balance that with shutter and ISO, so I never took and pics with the film cameras I had since I figured it was a waste of money. I pretty much bought this T3 to re-learn everything before I drop $500 on a 70D.

Second question: I didn't even realize that I had an EF-S 18-55 IS (pre-II) with matching EF-S 55-250 IS lens. There are already Quantaray DMC 1A filters on both of these lenses and they're in perfect condition (inherited from an old relative as a package deal with a Rebel 2000). What purchases should I make next to flesh out a good base setup? I'm sure a lot of you are tired of it, but I used to UrbEx a fucking lot and really enjoyed it. I already have tripods, plannong on ~2 SD cards and batteries next, but my father was into photography as well and I inherited all his equipment. His Nikon FE has a polarizing filter and a UV filter, a combination which he swore by. Should I just pick up some UV filters instead of these daylight ones? I have been looking at the B+W 58mm XS-PRO Digital."

"if focus by wire lenses are just using the focus ring as an input for the focus motor, why don't they take advantage of that format in any way? i feel like it wouldn't be that complicated to implement features like having the ability to change the sensitivity of the focus ring or having the lens be able to recall the position that the focus motor is set to when focused at infinity so it doesn't have to hunt for it every time and you could just snap the focus to that point with a control on the camera.

Yes, although even at the high end it's not a common feature. MF just isn't used much any more and certainly not often enough that someone could really benefit from being able to adjust the sensitivity (there are people that MF a lot but they're not doing it with more expensive FBW AF lenses).

You're more likely to see features like that in fixed lens cameras. For example my RX100 can adjust the zoom by wire speed and the focus by wire has acceleration like a computer mouse, the faster you spin the ring the greater the focusing distance it covers per degree of rotation. Then there's the Ricoh GR that has the snap focus feature, I'm not completely sure how it works but I think you just press a button and it jumps to a preset distance."

I learned on film and now I shoot digital exclusively because film got too expensive. I think shooting film helped me to develop habits like thinking more about my shots. The bad thing is I have like 300 shots of developed film in a binder that I never got around to scanning. The main and huge benefit for digital is the instant feedback, something very important for learning. Still, film was fun to shoot, but be aware of the costs. The camera and lenses are cheap, but film is expensive especially for the stuff photographers really like, like portra and tmax. You need the equipment/chemicals to develop and scan it.

Really depends on how much money you can or want to spend.

If spending the least money is most important, though photography is usually not a cheap hobby, and you can shoot film cheaply, that's what I did, then I'd say go digital. Even smartphones produce decent pictures.

If you want fun, shoot film, though I find photography fun no matter what format.

If you want to get as skilled as possible, it's up for debate. Film makes you think, but digital gives you instant feedback. Digital also lets you practice your post processing skills, a very important skill in photography. You could use both formats, if you can afford that.

Personally, I'd say get both if you can, if you can only get one, I'd say go digital and always put emphasis on improving. Ask for feedback/criticism. Try new things. Read books. Look at the best photos of history. Look at modern day photographers and see what you like and don't like. Think about why you like them.

Welcome to photography. I just got into video making, it's surprisingly fun. Try it out sometime."

Part 1/?
I don't know know much about flashes but I'll tell you what I do know.

Don't get overwhelmed, take it at your own pace.

Flashes are pretty much universal to brands when used in manual mode. I think some are brand-specific like Nikon and Canon, but that is for more advanced modes that automatically alter the amount and duration of light like TTL(through the lens) stuff. I reccomend the Neewer NW-561 as a starter if you can't spend much money.


1. Flashes are very useful/versatile.
I use them for indoor head shots for paying clients and they worked great. Really professional looking photos. I've shot some friends playing basketball and got some cool dunk shots. I've used them for jewelry/product photography and got a clean high-key white look.

Also, flashes use something called a hot-shoe and cold-shoe. Hot shoes are on most cameras that are not point-and shoots. They electrically trigger when a picture is taken. They are universal. Cold shoes just mount the flash, and do not have electrical connections.

2. For maximum versatility, buy lightstands and remote triggers. Neewer brand has worked well for me on the budget side(check reviews though). Buying light stands (with the appropriate brackets) and shoot-through umbrellas, and remote triggers ( a little radio device that sits on top of your camera that sends a signal when you take a picture to the off-camera flash with a little reciever) will give you a world of possiblites.

Again, don't get overwhelmed, it's not as complicated as it sounds.

3. Lighting diagrams are your friend.

Look up lighting diagrams for photography and you'll see overhead diagrams that tell you where to place your lights, reflectors (seriously, buy a reflector, it's cheap and it's done wonders for my outdoor portraits, I say get the Neewer 32 inch one), background, subject, camera and what kind of lights/modifiers they used.

Here's a good lighting diagram

Part 2/?

4. Know your camera's max flash sync shutter speed.

If you see a black bar covering like half or some part of your frame that touches 3 edges of the frame, your shutter speed is too fast. My camera's max flash sync shutter speed is 1/250.

5. If you can't spend the $165 for the budget setup that I have, with 2 flashes, radio triggers, light stands, brackets, and shoot through umbrellas, then just start with the flash itself for $40. You can mount it on your camera and have a more powerful direct (pointing at your subject for harsh light) flash, or point it up at a ceiling or wall to bounce the light. You can also have a friend/assistant hold the flash off camera and trigger it optically, which brings me to...

6. Know your flash, especially how to optically trigger it.

Most flashes have a sensor on them that senses a sharp and bright increase in light. This can be used to trigger the flash if you don't have radio triggers or if the triggers break during a shoot. See your manual to find out how.

That's all I can think of. Here are some helpful resources to get you going.

If the exposure is the same (e.g stop down the aperture by 1 stop and slow the shutter speed by 1 stop) then the histogram should be very close to identical. There may be slight differences at extreme variations due to vignetting (darker corners) and how in or out of focus the background is changing."

Had this briefly with street. You'll get various answers but the only honest answer is that you never fully get over it. You just learn to ignore it and shoot anyway.

Simply getting better at photography is the best answer because you know you're 1. Confident in yourself and 2. Thinking about the shot and what it's going to look like instead of what the person is or isn't going to think about you

You can just take a photo of the ground glass (the plate that's used for focusing) however that will have some light loss and grain. The best way to do it is to project onto an opaque white surface and then photograph that, which requires either a shift lens (or just shoot with an ultrawide and crop and lose some resolution) or a semi transparent mirror (again, some light loss).

So focus on something right where you'll be (if you'll be standing next to nothing, focus a foot or two in front of your feet to make up for the difference in distance from the camera when you recompose), set to manual so your camera doesn't focus again, recompose, take shot, get where you're supposed to be.

Shouldn't affect colours, other than the aforementioned darkening at the corners. The appearance of out of focus areas will also change, becoming less blurry and turning into more defined circles (and eventually pentagons/hexagons/heptagons/octagons/etc.) as you stop down. Sharpness will also change, gradually getting sharper typically until the diffraction limit (depends on pixel density, usually around f/8 or so) at which point it will get blurrier.

>>3315613
If you're going to be doing this a lot consider getting a remote, the D3200 has an IR receiver so you can get quite far away. As well as being able to tell the camera to focus you'll be able to get the shot at the exact time you want, instead of having to wait for the 2 or 10 second timer.

>>3315602
You'll need two lenses for that. Anything that goes longer than 55mm doesn't go wider than 17/18mm. Take a look at the 10/11-18/20/22mm ultrawide zooms. For the second lens you can either have some overlap with an 18-70/85/105/135/200/etc.mm or pick up a full frame lens that starts at 24mm or 28mm.

Can't say I recommend m43 for lenses then. They're either kinda to really shitty but punch above their weight for the price or fucking expensive. Crazy selection though, little sparse on the wides. The "leicas" made by like Tamron are a fucking meme for the price."

You know you can use the same lenses with a Fuji X adapter, right? The adapters cost fuck all on Ali so that's not a factor for me. Using adapted lenses isn't a special Sony only thing. I grew out of using vintage lenses a while ago. I'm not a poorfag anymore and I grew tired of manually focusing plus the ridiculous crop factor at times. I only really look for native lenses now, the results you get are better unless you're doing video work which calls for manual focus.

I already stated why I'd like to try Fuji: their native lens selection. Even though it's expensive they have a ton of lenses I'd like to try. The 35mm f2, the 56mm f1.2 and 23mm f1.4 are all really cool, I like the rest of the X line-up too. On Sony all I'm excited to use is the Sigma 60mm f2.8 and maybe the Sony 20mm f2.8 as a street pancake. The 18-105 f4 is cool too. That's about it.

The Fuji bodies are also really attractive to me, I tried a few of them in a camera shop and their menu system & ergonomics felt great. I'm just reluctant to make a total switch.

Pic related, the lenses I actually use."

Just sell the crap off and get a fuji, you'll be happier. The grass is always greener but you have to deal with that no matter what you choose. I'd wait for a better fuji body after photo kina, either for the needed improvements or the price drops on the old model.

Hatesex with an old camera you're going to list a couple months down the road is pretty nice."

Determine viewing distance to know roughly how many ppi you need then divide the image's resolution by required dpi.

Example:
People won't get closer than 1m from the image so 180ppi are enough and you have a 6000*4000 image that does not require any croping:
6000/180 = 33.33'' (84.66cm)
4000/180 = 22.22'' (56.44cm)

Even at 300ppi you would get a 20''*13.33'' (50.8cm*33.86).

An A4 print at 300ppi only requires a 3,507*2,481 image.

I don't want one best suited for one specific job just the best lens for everything as in one that is versatile, able to just DO it all well.

The one you leave on the lens is the one that fits your shooting style best and what you need for your subject. I don't know how experienced you are at photography, but after a while you know the focal lengths you like and invest the best you can with those. I rarely take my 30mm (45mm equiv) lens off my A6000 because it's exactly the range I enjoy.

My advice is to use your kit lens as long as you can, load up the EXIF of your photo library in Lightroom, notice your most used focal length, and buy the best prime lens you can afford for that. Canon has lots of premium L lenses for every focal length there is so you'll have plenty of choice."

Theoretically, it's the same light per square millimeter but like 1/10th the total light, denser sensors with smaller pixels collect less light and produce more noise per pixel, and the dynamic range is shit. Also the lens is tiny and would be something like f/22 full frame. If you stuck a big lens with a reducer on it, you'd get the results you're thinking of."

>I find I can't "zoom out" enough to get wide enough shots for indoor stuff
I routinely shot indoors on a 1.6 Crop at 16mm and got fine results, what the hell are you trying to get?

You can pick up a Rokinon 12mm for pretty cheap, a fantastic place to start if you desperately need wider indoor stuff because it's also a fast lens

> and unfortunately can't "zoom in" far enough for all the other shots I want to take
This also sounds fairly ridiculous. Other than wildlife I'm rarely limited on crop and my longest lens is 55mm. What the hell are you trying to shoot?

Like others have said, you'd ultimately need two lenses. There are extreme zoom lenses but they're rare and expensive as fuckery

>>3315613

Has anyone used this to develop the FILM?
It says it's a paper developer, but i saw that it was once sold as a universal developer for both things.
I saw a youtube video of a spanish nibba developing some B&W film with 1to9 dilution but i've seen people saying you should use 1to19 or even 1to29 parts water for developing film?
I want to make a darkroom, and this is a cheap option (better than the coffee one, i suppose)
but i'm fucking clueless
So, someone knows what's up?

Set to auto iso -- cap it at iso800, or use aperture priority

get a 35mm dx, or the 70-300 dx afp. shutter speed should be faster than 1/30 to be reliably sharp.

generally wide aperture means a thinner depth of focus, and small aperture means a large depth of focus. that means small aperture is everything in focus, whereas thin depth of focus you can selectively separate foreground from background.

Okay so this is my first time on this board and holy fuck am I lost.
Basically, I was sent here by /adv/ when I asked what to do for a dating profile pic because all of mine are shit and I don't know what the fuck to do. I really just wanted to hire a photographer, to be honest, but I didn't really know how to go about it. This place is for photos? Maybe you guys at least have incidental knowledge that would be helpful or MAYBE if I really have to I could try and do it myself granted that requires me to take the time and effort to learn an almost entirely new skill.

But oh my fucking god that sticky. Its not complete outside my interests to learn to take photos maybe its just... I mean I'm not sure I have time to do stupid shit like learn photography. Maybe I'm just setting the bar too high? I mean I'm not really unattractive maybe considering what people tend to say to me over the years, but I don' t have abs so I can't cheat with that.

I'm pretty lost and this probably isn't the right board, but /adv/ refuses to answer me so like... How do I... how much of this can a photographer help me with even? Do I have to pick my clothes and stuff? Can they actually help me decide what kind of scene... can they... I'm so lost.

Should I really just do it myself after all? Surely there's no way I'd learn to take halfway decent profile photos in any short time frame.

This shouldn't be so hard, but I can't just walk into some random photography place when I don't even know what to ask/tell them or even look for.

Oh my fucking god I can't handle this. I don't even know where to start. I've never even thought about doing something like this until now."

Just sit next to a window and take a few selfies with your phone m8. Put it on a tripod, set a timer, pose naturally as if a friend is taking your photo. If you want to make it extra pro you can set up some tinfoil on the opposite side of your face (where the sun isn't hitting) to reflect some soft light onto your face.

Think about it this way, if a bunch of dumb thots can take good selfies of themselves, you can too. Portraits are all about flattering lighting."

A compact camera isn't going to give you good low light performance at that budget.

Low light performance is mostly from having a large sensor in the camera. The bigger the sensor, the more light is resolved in your image. Cheap-ass compact cameras don't have that. The sensor inside is the size of a fingernail. You get basically the same performance as a phone camera so a total waste of money.

Just get any Canon or Nikon DSLR you can find locally, you'll get actual low light performance without wasting your money. If you don't want to do that, use your phone."

sorry that is not enough, this is because you also need a tripod along with the camera for low-light/night time. This is due to the fact that you will be using long shutter speeds (think ~30 seconds)

For those lenses F numbers are stated for full frame. You need to convert them to crop values to get real effective apertures when used on crop camera. Same goes for vintage lenses.

I'm currently looking at this line-up(open to change it): 55-210mm zoom for all things zoom. Have considered the more expensive 18-200, but the 55-210 seems like it fills my goals and requirements well.

One prime lens of some kind. I'm mainly looked at two lenses here: The Sigma 30mm 1.4 DC DN and the Sony 35mm 1.8. The Sigma is cheaper and a bit brighter while the Sony is physically smaller(important to me) and has OSS(not sure how important this is considering the A6500 has excellent IS.

One versatile zoom. Here, I have looked at the 16/70 4.0 and the 18-105 4.0. A bit pricey but I have heard a lot good about them. I'm open to other options though.

Opinions? What should/could I change? I'm aware of the lack of a macro lens and an ultrawide etc."

Does this also include the focal lenght? I guess im retarded as I’m having trouble grasping something that’s probably quite simple to comprehend.

So let’s say I have an APSC lens that is 18mm. I put this on a FF camera. The camera crops it so I’m guessing I’m not getting an 18mm but actually 18 x 1.5 crop factor so 27mm.

So I am to believe that the field of view that I see on my screen is actually if I would have a 28mm FF lens mounted on a full frame body? So reading APSC lenses would always mean adding a “x1.5” of what it actually is? If someone buys a 24mm apsc lens for his crop body it’s never really 24mm but actually 36mm of ehat you see in your field of view?

Can the same be aplied with full frame lenses on apsc bodies? So I have a 50mm FF lens and I put it on a crop body I get 50 x 1.5 so 75mm?

Hope I’ll finally get it"

First off, ignore that other fucker's post as he's talking shit.

>So let’s say I have an APSC lens that is 18mm. I put this on a FF camera. The camera crops it so I’m guessing I’m not getting an 18mm but actually 18 x 1.5 crop factor so 27mm.
It's still an 18mm lens. It gives the same field of view as a 27mm lens would on a full frame body.

>So reading APSC lenses would always mean adding a “x1.5” of what it actually is?
Only if you want to compare it to the field of view on a full frame body. If you don't have one then it doesn't really matter. If someone you know has a full frame body and they recommend a particular focal length for some reason, then you can times it by 1.5x.

Also cameras with smaller sensors (like 1" and less) and fixed lenses typically give the focal length in 35mm equivalence, so if you're ever looking at buying one of those then you can times your lenses by 1.5 to get an idea of what field of view the compact camera will have.

>Can the same be aplied with full frame lenses on apsc bodies? So I have a 50mm FF lens and I put it on a crop body I get 50 x 1.5 so 75mm?
A 50mm lens designed for APS-C and a 50mm lens designed for full frame will give identical field of view on an APS-C body (and a full frame body technically), the only difference is the size of the sensor that they can cover (they project an image and that image can only spread out so far)."

The effects shown in your picture are due to visual perspective, not the lens.

What's missing from your uploaded comparison is the distance between the lens and the subject.

The one on the left was taken with the lens very close, giving her a weird look. The one on the right was taken at a distance making her look less weird.

If you took a picture of the same girl from the same physical distance with both lenses you'll get the same perspective. The longer focal lengths essentially zoom in and crop within that perspective.

You can capture any perspective you want for any scene, different lenses and focal lengths just affect how much you can zoom in/out within any given scene."

So idk it feels like focal length makes a big difference in regards to stuff out of focus."

Just keep forcing yourself to do it. I'm guessing you're attempting street photography, the truth is EVERYONE is nervous when they start out. There's no easy solution to it, you're nervous because you've never done it before and you think of the worst, "what if someone gets angry at me?", but the truth is people are so caught up in their own heads they barely care what you do. They might look at you but a few seconds later they'll never think about you again.

My tips are respectful. You're doing nothing wrong so relax. If you look nervous then people will think you're up to no good so put in some headphones and try to relax.

If someone looks at you as you take a photo smile at them and keep walking. If you think they look like an asshole then look PAST them as if you're photographing a building or something behind them. If they ask what you're up to maybe lie and say you're a tourist in the area, people are more forgiving of tourists. It's VERY rare that people care though.

Another tip is set up a composition somewhere and wait for someone to walk into it. Look for shadows or pockets of light and wait for someone to walk into it. That way you're not chasing after people hoping for something cool to happen."

Yes but perspective remains constant regardless of lens/camera type.

Different lenses and stuff will have wider or more narrow depths of field. A lot of macro photography you see isn't "real". They use a technique called focus stacking in which they take dozens of pictures with slightly different focal points and then merge them together into the final picture.

If you want a wider depth of field, so more of the subject is in focus, narrow your aperture. Wider apertures cause "background blur" or "bokeh" in exchange for letting more light in."

But, like, why? For what reason?
Is it because of smartphones tanking sales for non-pro cameras?

I get that the sensor makes can make more crop sensors on the same wafer for a lot cheaper per unit but why aren't bodies and lenses adapting to them?

The only reason I want a full frame camera is so I get the full angle of vision. I'd be fine with a smaller sensor if it didn't crop the image circle.

It's not easy or always even possible fitting everything into frame indoors on crop sensors. I (and I imagine many others) would be fine with higher ISOs and grain.. too.

Wide angle is actually cheaper on crop than it is on full frame, though. There may be fewer prime lenses, but you can pick up a 15-35mm ultrawide zoom for $350 these days. That's outrageous, and the same zoom range costs five times more for full frame. Canon's got their 35mm equivalent pancake lens for $130.

I get that this is of little consolation if you, as I suspect, already own full frame lenses mounted to a crop body and you aren't looking to make a large investment in crop. But the idea that "the full image" is somehow cheaper or easier on full frame is sort of fallacious."

But that's part of the problem.
A 15-35mm ultrawide isn't ultrawide on a crop. It's effectively 24-56 which is unimpressive.

They're CHEAPER but they're not equivalent. They still have the crop factor so if you need for example a 16mm lens you have to buy a 10mm lens to get that.

They should design some lenses made with smaller image circles for crop sensors so this wouldn't be a problem, but they don't? Seems dumb.

I'd pay for a 16mm crop lens but I'm not looking to buy a 10mm fisheye shit to get the 16mm look on a crop body with more lens distortion and shit."

Well, a FF Canon sensor is about 2.6x the square area to a Canon Cropped sensor. So that costs more money simply due to size and also because these sensors are produced as one large wafer and then cut down to FF size. And since FF sensors take up more space on a wafer, you get fewer sensors per wafer for FF and the you get higher chances of defects per sensor (lost profits). Taking up more space on a any wafer is always more expensive and more risky per chip. Medium Format sensors have even higher defect rates and so are very expensive.

Then there is the image processing chip, which on many Canon FF they include two DIGIC chips for faster processing and often need bigger amounts of fast RAM/FLASH for the buffer before it's written to the card. Better quality shutters. Dual Card slots. Usually 4K movie ability on newer Canon FF.

TIFF is lossless, but it's not RAW.
It's better than JPEG but lost most of the data you'd want if you were going to go process the RAW manually.

If you're looking to just slightly adjust some white balance, TIFF isn't the end of the world. If you're looking to recover details.. RIP."

If your stuff is in TIFF then it simply means that the RAW image has been demosaiced and then saved to TIFF. You can gain small amounts of extra detail by using a better demosaicing or demosaicing noise reduction. TIFF still saves in a high bitdepth so no bitdepth should be lost, the no Demosaicing options."

Depends what you're doing and how long the exposure is.

If you're shooting something that's moving (light trails from a torch, star trails, flowing water, etc.) then timing doesn't matter as the exposure is determined by aperture and ISO.

If you're shooting something stationary then it depends on the total length. 1 second over on a 30 second exposure isn't going to make much difference (1/5 of a stop if my math is correct, which it probably isn't but you should get the just of it) where is a 2 second exposure when you meant to do 1 second means you're a full stop over exposed."

Is a P&S camera an option or is this criteria a good enough reason to merit getting a DSLR? I don't know at what point should someone get one over the other. When its a hobby? When you care about quality a lot? When you use it often?"

">>3320202
Well with a P&S, those usually have a sensor around double the size of a phone which helps with quality along with a better lens over a phone. Usually you only have JPEG output vs a DSLR that normally has RAW output options which can give you more editing options after you take the photo. Generally the larger sensors in Cropped DSLRS and Full Frame DSLRs (and Mirrorless) are going to give finer detail overall (assuming FOV and Megapixels are the same).

Downside to DSLR over P&S. DSLR/Mirrorless cost more, less user friendly and needs more knowledge from the user, and they are just bigger overall. Instead of it fitting in your pocket you get to be the guy walking around with 2lbs of gear around your neck.

Personally I go for the cropped (APS-C) DSLRs simply because they are like half the price of a Full Frame Camera body and the lenses are cheaper too while still providing great performance over the smaller senors. Also provides decent low light performance (not as good as Full Frame). You can get some good prices on used APS-C DSLRs too.

If you don't want the bulk you might look into something like the PowerShot G7 X or Micro four thirds options.

Get mirrorless. It's the middle road. Easier to learn and smaller. Entry models are bout 200€ more expensive that similar dslr, so take that in considerations."

I don't really plan on editing much since I don't know nor do I think I want to learn how to do so. If I do want to take a good picture, I know that lighting and set-up is a huge factor.

Neither, they hire people with large cocks

You're not going to make any noticeable difference with a lens and spending £400 for a fisheye for cock-pics is retarded. But then so is this question

Then why the obsession with full frame? Medium format etc obviously crop less

>It's not easy or always even possible fitting everything into frame indoors on crop sensors.
Utter nonsense. I routinely beat full frame shots with a 12mm on an ASP-C. The reason it's "expensive" and rarer is because it's niche use and there's not much demand. Crop sensors and full frame sensors are both plenty for 90% of consumer needs

>It feels like just being able to get a fucking "full image" is being gated behind pro level cameras for no reason other than fucking over the consumers.
That's almost as absurd as the rest of your reasoning. It's demand and supply, same as ever"

Sometimes it's hard to tell but generally speaking it's just 90% new photographers and 9% jaded tripfags who have been doing the same old shit without learning anything for a long time. There are occasionally good photographers passing through here though.

>>3320142
You don't. You just shoot anyway. Obviously don't shoot girls in bikinis and kids without permission or do something chosisey but generally speaking you're fine on a beach unless you're being a creep

I shot 16mm on ASP-C for a while and it's fine for almost all landscape purposes. I much prefer wider angle for various reasons but you should be fine unless you're up real close"
