Unless your filming with a rig, attached extra batteries may be helpful, other than that this is the most useless thing I have seen in a very long time πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Greg Ohio: I shot jpeg only for many years. But, modern storage is so large and fast that’s there’s no good reason not to shoot raw. Modern computers can display raws just as readily as jpegs using plugins. So, I’m raw-only.

I agree but especially for Fuji there are so many fantastic film simulations for JPGs, so it's actually best to shoot JPG (fine) + RAW and as you say, disk or card space is not relevant anymore!

And getting kicked out of bed by your girlfriend for your unbearably stinking fingers 😱

Loreno Heer: I use DarkTable and rawtherapee which costs me 0$ including all updates and new versions.

@Drew ok it can tether... wow and now? How fast is it? How reliable...

None of the mentioned softwares can reach the speed and reliability of continuous shooting large files within seconds.
Not even the praised LR

sorry to burst the bubble πŸ˜‚

PS: and I never said it cannot do it, it just can't do it good enough. Huge difference. Google does tell you that too πŸ˜‰

Can it tether?
Probably no, so no option for thousands of photographers out there...
Oh, and if you think LR is an option, no again, C1 is the only software with reliable and extremely fast tethering.... πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

ccarrier: Most important setting to change : deactivate demo mode (where you can take a picture, without a card in the camera and it shows the picture on the LCD screen for a few seconds). Perfect for a demo in store but can be disastrous if you think you have a memory card in the camera and take some pictures :-)

On the other hand you instantly know you have NO memory card in your camera before you start shooting!

Demo appears only on Nikons, on my Canon R5 it just doesn't release without a card...
But I might be wrong that other brands have "Demo" too.

zdf: First of all: Set up proper language :)
Since i can not read English, it is the most important thing to do.

Interesting enough the translation into German is so miserable on all of my cameras, I left it on English, besides getting more and better tutorials on YouTube when you start with a new camera.

Nova Strict: Next up on DPR: "Got a camera? Turn it on before you use it!" and "How to charge your camera's battery in 3 simple steps."


Interesting that in all your years of "experience" you never stumbled and smashed your camera with your "reversed" lens hood... 🀣

It's not only there to protect from flares, but you probably knew this, you little rebel πŸ˜‰

wats0n: I had to sell all my gear with my wife’s medical issues which have drained our savings. So I would be humble and take a ole Canon Rebel…

Hopefully she will recover soon! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Michiel953: The image comparo doesn't really prove anything, but apart from that: "taking light away"? Start by not adding light judiciously I would say.

Anyway, to achieve the "cinematic" look (whatever that is) much more is required than what is shown here.

Start by looking at movies, at your choice.

So true, movies and theatre plays can be very inspirational....

But you mustn't forget that nowadays 90% of the look is done by colour grading in post...

(unknown member): I don't know how much it will help against theft, but it will certainly help you finding your bag when you walk away and forget about it. At least you will then be warned via your phone.

I'd rather see this integrated in the camera itself, with an app on your phone and a switch that would allow to lock up your camera making the camera useless.

@Normware: it's actually mind-boggling how little to nothing camera manufacturers have done to prevent theft, or track items. It could easily be done at minimal costs... πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Michiel953: I use lens hoods for protection, certainly not filters. Apart from the obvious "optical quality" argument, two additional surfaces to attract dust.

Exactly! Nuff said!

Graham Meale: Camera straps aren't cool? Oh no, all these years I've been uncool.

Never used one, never dropped a camera either.

And I'm not even cool

KaisDB: Some people "need" a Z9, 100Mpix and gaziilions focus point to shoot moving objects, some have talent and skills...
Photographers vs amateurs.

Talent you have or you don't. Skills can be learned.
The difference between an amateur and a pro is that the amateur might get lucky an get the shot. The pro has get it, consistently and over longer times on a shoot.
A pros work is calculable and reliable.

That's why he gets payed at the end.

This was the camera Weegee (Arthur Fellig) used as his everyday street and documentary camera with 4by5" sheet films.

So nothing new and exceptional, just rediscovered. But nice to see that young photographers leave their digital comfort zone.

BTW: looking at images of Brassai using a similar camera in Paris in the 1930 and 40s. Amazing night shots with available light...

Photoman: I've had a Nikon D800 with 1.1m and a Nikon D810 with 1.4m shutter counts and both were still working when I sold them. Some shutters are made better than others I suppose.

It depends a lot on environment you use your cameras in: if you travel from the North Pole to the hottest deserts and back into a tropic jungle, your shutter is not gonna make it to 2.3 million actuations. If it's a studio camera it's not that rare.
