Okay then. ;)

But isn't that every thread?

Crollo is insane. Do you go to school or follow any type of schedule or something?

Video. Through the viewfinder of a photo camera. I think you misunderstood the concept of using DSLRs to shoot video.

I look at so much of what Crollo posts in this thread, and in others and just think "why?"

DSLR's are completely photo-based tools that usually can have decent video modes, and while it's not particularly the recommendation, I would probably shoot video with a DSLR anyways.

Did the school supply it or did you buy it? If so, what'd it cost?

Yupp, my precious D90. Some kind of memory and sensor failure. But no time for sorrow, it seems like the warranty will cover it. Even if it doesn't, a comrade of mine gave me his old D70.
Posted 8 years ago2011-10-27 19:56:39 UTC Post #300288
At least it's covered by warranty. You don't lose anything.

D70s are ok. But I'm still on the Canon team :P

Holding a good camera for any length of time doesn't make you less of a pedantic ass, so no.

Also by definition a pedantic is already an ass so adding ass to the end is a little excessive, like calling somebody a moron idiot... Just saying.
Unfortunately the quality isn't that great even full res if yo have a monstruos monitor. They look fine on my 19 inch monitor though.
The limitationsxof a 1/2.3' CMOS sensor... I want a DSLR so badly
Striker, I just used a full frame DSLR and it didn't exactly give this 'great full res quality' that you say DSLR's have... I'm on a 1280x1024 monitor... Are you sure just simply buying a DSLR is going to just work in that manner?

EDIT: I just shot raw for the absolute first time... 25MB? I think I'm going to go into the next room and have a breakdown.

Crollo, a T2i is not full frame.
Posted 8 years ago2011-11-05 04:00:27 UTC Post #300490
Ah fuck, what. Asked the guy who owned it if it was full frame and he said yes, my bad... Still, the point stands, even a APS-C sensor is pretty fucking massive compared to a 1/2.5" sensor, and I'm not seeing any magical radical improvements from the sensor size alone. You could of course easily make great photographs using a DSLR as it's so powerful, but don't just act as though 1/2.5 is really limiting you THAT much... Like a DSLR you have to actually WORK with the equipment to get great results. Look at my T2i pictures for an example of how you can still very easily get poor results, the large sensor isn't going to negate or fix that.

Too much talking.
Today I got to use the T2i again [Obviously], but instead of the 18-55mm kit lens I got to use a 55-250 lens. Jesus christ it's a fucking canon. [No pun intended...]

Tomorrow I'll be getting an EOS system camera so I won't be using the FT QL anymore. I'm going to miss it but oh well, EOS.

Posted 8 years ago2011-11-05 05:45:27 UTC Post #300491
The only current full-frame models by Canon are the 1D and 5D, which cost upwards of $5000 and $2500 respectively.

Also all Canons have been EOS since 1989.

I'm not going into detail as it's not like you can't learn this from anybody else but me, but sensor size does indirectly have an effect on depth of field. You may or may not use that to your advantage when taking photos.

I'm sure I've posted this before, but you can take a look at this baby again:

Canon EF 1200mm/5.6L USM
Posted 8 years ago2011-11-05 06:09:45 UTC Post #300492
Jesus, EOS was introduced in the 90's? I thought it was at least introduced in the 80's. But yes, I'm replacing my FT QL because there aren't any current-production lenses for it, whereas a EOS camera will take all current autofocus lenses, of which I imagine there are hundreds and thousands of lenses.

Yeah, depth of field is definitely affected by sensor size, and a larger sensor size of course does better in low light and soforth, but you still have to actually put the effort into it, so I'm just pulling Striker's leg a bit because he's complaining about his small sensor size, by telling him a small sensor size can still accomplish a lot. [Protip: Replace sensor with penis. :)] And yes, I do indeed make use of the larger sensor, the EF 18-55 kit lens on the T2i has shallower focus at 18mm then my shitty kodak has at 102mm...

Not necessarily. APS-C and APS-H can take both EF and EF-S mount lenses, but full frame cameras are only compatible with EF mount lenses.

EOS was introduced in 1987 IIRC, and all FD mount models were discontinued by 1989. It was Nikon that introduced autofocus systems a few years earlier.
Posted 8 years ago2011-11-05 06:55:46 UTC Post #300494
Well I'm actually not getting a EOS DSLR, I'm just replacing my FT QL with a Canon EOS Rebel G, so I'm not concerned about EF\-S lenses as there are so many of both types the difference is probably negligible. [Although, I do remember somebody buying a Canon SLR and then asking if it was full frame, haha.]

Either way I might be able to get a DSLR through the school, but that's way up in the air right now... Looking at a D70.

What's the problem with autofocus? You just have to learn to use it.
Posted 8 years ago2011-11-06 05:37:34 UTC Post #300515
Canon EF 35-80mm f/4-5.6 III Lens
User posted image
Next week maybe I'll try out the EF 18-55mm [The one I used with the T2i], this is just a kit lens.

My only problem with autofocus is just that particularly on older cameras [Such as this one] it tends to be somewhat hit and miss at times, I don't know why it bugs me as I'm not a snapshot person, but I never use high end [Or even entry level] camera equipment so that's why I despise AF.

Also I've already gotten film, the school payed for it so that works out for me. Run about 5 rolls through the FT QL and I have 5 left.

I saw about 2 weeks ago at a photography course( a teacher brought us a photographer, but it was more like listening to things I already knew) a canon lens with f/1.2 . The price? ~3000$. But it was a piece of jewelry.

I think there aren't any zooms wider than 2.8. Made by Canon, at least.

What I do know is that at some point there was a lens produced that went up to f/0.95.
Posted 8 years ago2011-11-07 02:04:29 UTC Post #300542
I believe it was a leica 50mm prime. Damn impressive 0.95.

I'm not very informed about this, but isn't f/0.95 impossible?

Apparently not, as if f/1.0 wasn't physics bending enough, leica came out with the Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M.

Maybe when I'm rich and can afford to burn 100$ bills at at time.

Also that 85mm looks great. Too bad it costs an arm and a leg. [Alright, it's pretty damn cheap when it comes to lenses, but I need to get a damn job.]
