Photography Equipment

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I don't know why this shot of a bus from a car accelerating past it has become so severely skewed.

P.S. Camera is a Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) running Android Marshmallow.

A.) What camera(s) do you use? (Please specify if it's a film camera)

I use the camera on my phone (Galaxy Note 5), the PowerShot G15, or if I could, the preferred option is my XTi, but the CF card broke so I'm waiting for another one that will arrive soon.

 

B.) What lenses do you use? (when applicable)

I have to use the intergrated lens but on my XTi I have a EF-S 18-135mm zoom lens.

 

C.) On a scale of 10, how would you rate your camera / lens?

Note 5: 2/10, G15: 7/10, XTi: 6/10

 

D.) Do you have a wish list of photography equipments that you would like to have? (if applicable)

T7i or better. That's literally it. And perhaps a tripod since mine is broken.

Acquired full control of the Canon Powershot A1000IS as a replacement for the A530 which is busted broken. I bought it from Kijiji on Monday for $10.

Months later, I felt I decided to sell the same camera I own since I have no use for it. I just bought a Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS for the same price as the last camera ($10) on Kijiji last week.

Bought a 1985 vintage Tamron 35-135mm f3.5 for $20 at an antique store in Tonasket, WA the other day - tried it out, nice and crisp photos - super sharp for a manual focus 👍

Would've mentioned this before but i never knew about this thread. I use a Canon Powershot SX540 HS, and it has built in lens, which has 50x optical zoom, 1080p60 vid rec, and 5184 x 3888 image stills.

Started using a Nikon D5300 with the standard 18-55mm with a faulty 55-200mm.

I also got an Olympus OM10, but I need to buy film before I can really start shooting.

I found the OM-10 to be... weird. I didn't like not having control over the shutter speed unless you had the manual adapter, so I never picked one up for that reason.  I still will occasionally a roll through my OM-1

Yeah, that's what I've heard. From what I've seen online, there was some sort of defect with most of the OM-10s, until Olympus realized it and fixed the problem for the newer OM-10s. It's a handy down, but I guess I can learn from it and progress onward to other SLRs.

a) I use a Canon Rebel T2i DSLR

b) 18-55mm IS II and 55-250 STM

c) 8/10

d) In the future, I would love to get myself a newer camera body such as a T6i or T7i but for the next little while, I think I should be fine.  I also might consider some better lenses/more lenses for the future as well.

I'm still shooting film.  Here's the problem:  Canon totally re-engineered their lens mount when they developed their autofocus system with the EF mount and severed compatibility.  This means I'd have to repurchase all of my lenses if I were to go to a DSLR system from any manufacturer because none of my FD or FL lenses move up.  The silver lining is that there's no vendor lock-in to Canon.  I'd want a full frame DSLR and not any APS-C or other sized sensor that changes the perspective of any given focal length lens.

I think I could put a digital back on my medium format camera but don't really want to go down that road.  Someone at Henry's thought they were being helpful when they told me that the prices on digital Hasselblads had fallen and they could outfit me with a basic kit for approximately the same price as my house down payment but anything Hasselblad or Leica is out of my price range so that's a nonstarter even though I'm sure I'd love and enjoy fine equipment like that.

Gear Update!

I used to use the Panasonic DMC-FZ200 as i mentioned back in 2017, but recently I have made the switch to Sony after checking on numerous beginner cameras and what was within my budget lol. So here is my current kit:

Body: Sony A68

Lenses: 18-55 SAM II & 18-135 SAM

Overall rating: 8/10 - It practically beats my FZ200 out of the ballpark when it comes to night capabilities, the focus system is also nice as well as the overall detail photos is really good.

In the future which is probably a very long time from now, I might move up in the A-mount lineup (that being the A77/A77 II) which all depends on how well my experiences are with this camera for the next few years lol
