brfry2mo
lkkltmxxd I think I saw their ad on instagram stories. Looked much professional than their website if itโ€™s the same service
dfcxtokz2mo
Thanx, they have some practical solutions on their blog, nice little rabbit hole to jump in
svoqw2mo
Youโ€™re welcome. I recon you can find freelancers as will online who do the same
vvrvvogu2mo
I am sure a lot of 19 yo kids would be faster and better than me I just have to give it up as a thing I wont do myself before looking for them ๐Ÿ˜„ Lets see how these next monts go ๐Ÿ™‚
mzjuygixqqgto2mo
ylemhzqobwbosfzv used a service like that recently to make a travel video, and they did a pretty good job
pqacs2mo
Those guys are really hard to shot with the tg6 unless you give up the iso. They wiggle and jump really fast, so you need shutter speed > 160 to freeze them
imwrldlf2mo
I was just about to ask isnโ€™t it hard with the compact camera. But you have lights I see at least, right? Or is it a build-in flash light?
dxyyk2mo
szuuexhog Iโ€™m using external strobe. The hardest part is to focus or get the shot when theyโ€™re jumping around. Iโ€™ll try to get a video next time
tfhsa2mo
What I do is wait for them to come into the view, shoot fast & blindly and hope it works then repeat ๐Ÿ˜…
fjjbp2mo
My friend use different technique, I would say the camera limitations and your experience determines best approach
pfpdb2mo
Mine since the focal length is really narrow, is to hit the capture button all the way so the tg6 focus and shot quickly. otherwise even with not moving subject I tend to lose focus
zooemryp2mo
Yes, I know the struggle of compact, have done the same myself ๐Ÿ˜… whats your friend doing and what camera with?
mdyar2mo
okksekcjo heโ€™s using canon G7ii with diopter, and manual focus. Works really well for him
qnpib2mo
If youโ€™re interested to see how it turned out you can check his insta. pirata__morgan
dfypl2mo
Took it with a gopro. Lots of noise and some weird red pixels..
vmvntvcb2mo
nice for a go pro but I wanna know about the alpha, vwruiy ๐Ÿ˜„
gmeud2mo
thanks Diana, just bought it yesterday. I got the a6400 ๐Ÿ“ท
koeyt2mo
Got the camera and kit lens (15-50) for about $850. good discount thanks for IDR being cheaper these days
whiso2mo
I didnโ€™t get any additional lenses or accessories yet although Iโ€™ve a few in mind. I want to get to know the camera first and get comfortable with it before going on a spending spree ๐Ÿ˜…
yklqj2mo
Iโ€™ll let you know what I think soon once I get more photos out of it and check it out on lightroom. Initial Iโ€™m super happy with the quality compared to the tg6
reunkdlo2mo
Yeah, it is a nice upgrade from the tg6. I am eyeing a nikon z6 lately
rgcocona2mo
Mainly because a friend with a nikon was annoyed with sonyโ€™s lens prices and pointed it at me. I have somehow managed to miss it in any camera review Ive read.
qbjun2mo
For my use case Iโ€™ve a couple of lenses in mind already for the sony. I like how sony is using the same mount without adapters
iyaej2mo
Itโ€™s not a big issue for nikon as the canon where you have 2 incompatible mounts for the mirrorless
eijih2mo
I want to get the sigma 16mm (or 30) 1.4 as my main lens. I think itโ€™s price is great
oamwylsf2mo
Yes, the wide ones are ok price wise but the long ones are limited in choice compared to others and if you want something specific like a hard 100mm :)
pzpue2mo
Didnโ€™t check that to be honest ๐Ÿ˜
zqzli2mo
Although I plan to get the canon 50mm (i think) macro with an adapter. Itโ€™s better than the song 60mm
tmastufwekjn2mo
Nice! I have the a5100 and am debating whether to upgrade to a new base - a6400 or a6500
suwzzlifxawi2mo
Curious to hear how you like it czzdew
eweglwyqvbji2mo
I have the sigma 19mm/f2.8 and a Rokinon super wide lens I use for astral photography with this camera btw. Both recommended for sure
yzhpctup2mo
Havent heard of it will check the brand. I was told tamron makes great affordable ones
eyylc2mo
heard good reviews about the tamron as well
ubzwc2mo
dsyvooflvdorw I had the same debate. Then decided that IBIS probably not worth it to go for older camera (6500) or more expensive (6600)
rxrkk2mo
I do photos %95 of the time, and try to keep the shutter speed fast
drddr2mo
And for low light the sigma 1.4 going to help for low light
rhtjyhijwfsg2mo
ahhh gotcha gotcha - same here - i would primarily want it for photos not videos
ezevyyendhww2mo
fbuzgpowi I'm still enjoying my a6600 + 16-55mm F2.8 G. I was really missing the sharpness of it
yfkyckucq2mo
I have the Sony a6000 with Sigma 19mm f2.8 art lense and Globe CPL filter attached.

I'm tempted to upgrade to the A7 range for super crisp photos.
otfkwrqhk2mo
My Google Pixel does too good of a job for basic things.
mnnce2mo
So I know I said Iโ€™m going to use my sony a6400 for sometime as is before start buying extra stuff, But Iโ€™m really tempted to get 7Artisans 35mm f1.2
oakbm2mo
Itโ€™s manual focus and only $100. Any one used it or has experience with manual focus lenses? any tips?
mydmeyowwisz2mo
lawlll
xsczk2mo
Hey let me enjoy my toy ๐Ÿ˜…
awyse2mo
ojjjrourghysm So I had the camera for a week now. So far my experience is really good and I like it. My main issue now is the autofocus not always get it right, but itโ€™s because Iโ€™m not used to it and havenโ€™t tried the the other modes yet
mmdld2mo
I uploaded some of the pictures I got here in case anyone wants to take a look
fnoehzuuprnj2mo
Mmmm gotcha gotcha are u having autofocus issues in low light btw?
ruzxh2mo
qoiillvfbzuey no in bright day light ๐Ÿ˜…
brmkhwnybbfj2mo
Hahaha welp
ockgdmzfjyvj2mo
Might need to play around with settings then haha
lopjx2mo
Iโ€™m used to my tg6, The focus mode I was using is fixed box and I can move it around so I always know where itโ€™s going to lock the focus
jfmlm2mo
In the sony I didnโ€™t change focus setting yet. so itโ€™s scan the entire view for best contrast so Iโ€™m not exactly sure where it will lock focus. I know I can change it to what Iโ€™m used to but I want to give it time to try it
funox2mo
I have a A6300 (A6000 before), and most of my lenses are manual. I have a Neewer 35mm F1.7 and I love it.
I would say that 1.2 is an exaggeration, but you may have fun with it ๐Ÿ‘
hctri2mo
Thanks eijvsq
yxqse2mo
I figured 1.2 should give really nice bokeh
iteky2mo
For this one I decided to skip it online reviews didnโ€™t give it great reviews. Plus I plan on getting the sigma 16mm 1.4 and see how it goes
skucc2mo
With the 1.7 (7 artisans is a rebrand of Neewer) the bokeh is already as beautiful as difficult the focus. I don't know, but I also thought to buy that lens a couple of years ago.
okrmwgmgw2mo
I'm really enjoying the Cherry Blossom at the moment :cherry_blossom:

wolvbi2mo
I can't compete with that but.. yesterday, after a couple of months thinking my battery was dead and had to replace it, I tried to blow it one last time and it worked :_
ocjofn2mo
(all of this just to take a pic of myself looking like jesus, 3 month beard ftw)
yjiypuup2mo
Iโ€™m really glad I brought my 70-300mm lens with me to my corona hideout. Itโ€™s keeping me entertained on my balcony. So far Iโ€™ve managed to get some rays, lots of jellyfish, random fish, a turtle, and surprisingly a fox
pbqynhpz2mo
I wish I had a tripod though. Iโ€™d capture some video with it.
bgzxgxznrwznsm2mo
It turns out that the camera doesn't belong to us. My wife was borrowing it from a friend. So recently my wife bought an Olympus OM-1. It's a nice camera. I look forward to learning more about it. It's heavier than the Yashica by about 130g.
azgbg1mo
Santai in Bahasa means relaxing, she does spend most of the daytime like this ๐Ÿ˜‚
bsubxsdcgjbm1mo
isytzx lovely tone in that photo
foiozetonvx1mo
pubnfs please tell her I love her โค๏ธ
nxlij1mo
odscnjwrrzbx She only cares about belly rub, she loves them so much. Iโ€™ll give her one and tell her itโ€™s from you ๐Ÿ˜„
zvazx1mo
hvcpbxzgfkzjv I like to desaturate my photos a little bit and bring it back selectively on the subject
jiyfpeyqdpnm1mo
haha sheโ€™s so much smaller than i expected based on the top close-up photo lol
xxvou1mo
wyucqqdlvcpfq Sheโ€™s above small size I would say.
yqsivftelrwf1mo
medium sized perhaps
kxxjq1mo
By any chance does anyone knows what breed she is? Tried to look it up online with no luck
tpwtajruglmm1mo
2 strangers passing in the night?
ynfxrjjdeawc1mo
thatโ€™s the breed of my cat ๐Ÿ˜†
nbhkflvjwgtwxty1mo
Where are you located?
yoeeldjxfjfq1mo
i also refer to him as the ginger trash goblin
mteixopadskk1mo
or giant pumpkin
vwlfrzmhwuts1mo
let me find a relevant high quality photo
olmco1mo
uonspcehsmqfrzbc Bali, but thereโ€™s so many breeds from all over the world here. I see malamute casually here
uldbdirlcmsglbb1mo
Hmmm, yeah that's a hard one to pinpoint.
nhdfa1mo
For some subjects it's not easy to use of course because you could miss the focus, but in general it's much more fun the manual focus. If you like it I should suggest you the Samyang 300mm F6.3, my favorite lens.
prqih1mo
rfechx thanks for the tip Iโ€™ll check it out
mmmjv1mo
Yah itโ€™s for fun and portrait of stationary subjects mostly
dikbe1mo
On both 500px and Instagram my profile is `mpic_it`. If there are some you like I can tell you what lens I used.
(Nomadlist doesn't allow me to post URLs)
sihef1mo
dimyub Got it bro, thanks a lot appreciated ๐Ÿ™Œ
hytbh1mo
You are definitely at another level, and you take pictures in a environment I don't know anything about. Anyway, in these three years I tried a dozen of lenses e-mount, so feel free to ask.
ikrzi1mo
dhgtyc thanks bro. A lot of underwater photographers prefer manual focusing for macro. They lock on comfortable focus distance and move the camera back and forth
orfki1mo
Iโ€™ll try to take some photos of the dogs tomorrow with the new lens and see how it goes ๐Ÿ™Œ
mtbrbkoh1mo
sfmclshb I saw that on insta. You made me want to buy one of the abandoned ones and renovate it ๐Ÿ˜‚
fdsgwsvka29d
This has got me really thinking of upgrading to the Sony ษ‘7 range from Sony ษ‘6000.

On my radar Sony ษ‘7mk3 with the Sony FE 24-105 mm F/4 G OSS
gaspk28d
Considering cost and size, I would never buy a fullframe, also professionals say that it's hard to see the difference. Of course if you don't mind the cost and you don't need a compact camera it could make sense.

To upgrade from A6000 to A6300 it's a very wise move, A6300 has many interesting features missing on the A6000.
lklsn28d
I was planning on full frame mainly because of the low light performance. But to take it underwater it cost way more than the 6400 and the advantages for me wasnโ€™t worth the cost. not now at least
lhxlb28d
I would also recommend getting something with better weather-sealing than Sony. maybe z6.
ubyke28d
My 6400 after 5 weeks now in service because a splash of water damaged the rear wheel control. Itโ€™s getting fixed on warranty but itโ€™s out of my hand for a month minimum :\
snngu28d
This is Troopy, One of the adult corgis where I stay now. Other dogs struggle to bite him because of his thick furr but a great and lovely boy โค๏ธ
cxewn28d
Of course who takes pictures in particular conditions like yours (low light, "very high" humidity) may have these needs, but most of people don't get anything more from a full-frame, just the sensation to have a bigger and more expensive toy in their hand ๐Ÿ™‚
zilpb28d
No more Santai, but 9 dogs replaced her now. I miss her though I need to go back there and say hi to her
mmusvwuqc24d
Not going to lie, this thread got me looking deeply into the upgrade.

I have a Sony A7 III with Sony 20mm f1.4 G on it's way.

I did a whole deal of research and managed to get the kit for ยฃ2000 (brand new) [_$2500 USD_] shipping from Hong Kong.
gujigs5d
Neat - itโ€™s m4/3 - whatโ€™s the use case for it?
cgmpuzjturvtr5d
It's kind of like a budget Red system, where you can turn it into whatever you need

Can't talk much about the project now, though
