    A "new" Rolleiflex!

    Heya gang! Today I got a rolleiflex on the mail, first taste of medium format. Exciting! It looks to be in good shape, bought it from an old man who apparently spontaneously bought it from a garage sale over 30 years ago. Shutter works, but it's a but unreliable on slower shutter speeds...

    The eternal question of pricing

    Hello! Between March-April I'll have my first ever paid shoot, it'll be an event or bal more specifically. Excited! They want me shooting actively between 16-22 (4PM - 10PM), so about a 6 hour shoot. During this time they expect me to my thing when they mingle, take group shots and some...

    Swedish photography hobbyist!

    Hello! I'm William, 24, and I joined about a year ago but never really introduced myself. Photography has been around me all the time, though it only caught my interest for real in 2017 depsite having studied it since 2011.

    Canon 5D classic died on me

    Hello forum! I was on a very nice hiking trip this past week. My main system is a Sony A7ii with some native glass but also some adapted Canon lenses (Sigma MC-11). For this trip I decided to get a cheap camera, full frame, to go with the glass I already own and the 5D classic was, to me, a...

    Sony A7ii flash equipment

    Heya! So I was asked if I'm willing to shoot some portraits and groups shots of people from a local gym, they basically want to refresh their site but keep the same feeling of the photos they have now. That means I have to shoot with studio lights, and I haven't done that since high school. I...

    Adapters and third party lenses

    Heya! I've recently aquired my A7ii and I'm loving it, now I'm just missing lenses I used to have on my Nikon system. I'm mainly looking at a 70-200mm 2.8 model, and since I know mirrorless bodies are fantastic for adapting lenses I made sure to look at the used market for different good deals...

    Which Sony A7 to get

    Heya! I just sold off my D800, D5100 and lenses to compress my excessive collection of stuff I don't use. This was done in order to get a mirrorless camera, and Sony is as far as I can tell the only manufacturer that produces "cheap" FF mirrorless ones. My mind is set on the A7ii. With the...

    Switch.. D800 to A7ii

    Heya! So right now I'm about to move to a small apartment, and I have alot of stuff. I've been playing with the thought of jumping ship for a long time, and it's starting to make alot of sense (I hope). Right now I'm on a D5100 and a D800, both are great cameras- no doubt. Though I'm looking...

    Mirrorless for vintage glass

    Hello People! I have apparently missed the fantastic discovery on mirrorless cameras ability to match vintage glass. Boy do I feel stupid, had I known this a year ago I would've grabbed an A7 instead of my current D800. Anyhow, I'm looking for someone to trade systems with.. And that you can't...

    Bought a used D800, fiddly multi selector

    Heya! I just recently bought a used D800 *yay*, but the multi selector is fairly wiggly and slightly unresposive. This I knew when buying it, so rest reassured- I wasnt scammed. I was just thinking if theres a way for me to fix or replace it without having to send in the entire house into...

    Olympus m10mk2 vs PEN PL8

    Hello people! I am lookimg to surprise my girlfriend with a new camera. She already has 2 DSLR's and has come to the conclusion that she wants something more compact and easy to use rather than having a big DLSR around her neck. She doesnt care too much about shooting in manual mode but likes...

    Not disappointed.. Not satisfied.

    Hello guys! Back again after a few months after asking for help over a potential upgrade from a Nikon D5100 to something more rigid. After some discussion going on with people here on the forums I ended up going for a D7100 and man it's a splendid camera, I like the display by the power button...

    Dirty sensor

    Heya! My sensor is pretty.. Dirty I'd say. Bought a D7100 quite recently, a used one. So I suppose things like this is pretty normal, all things get dusty after a while. I want to go for long exposure shots, but there are 15+ black dots all over the place so that's a no go for now. Looked up...

    Lets get a new lens!

    Heya! I recently got my D7100 and I'm pretty satisfied, really felt like an upgrade from the D5100. For the time being I have the classic 18-55mm lens that came with the D5100 and an additional 50mm! Man that 1.8 aperture is glorious! I am however feeling slightly limited, something new would...

    Old lenses, new camera

    Heya! I recently got my D7100 and I love it. Combined with my 50mm lens it does the trick to say the least. However, I feel like I lack variation, more lenses would be great. My grandfather was also into photography, before he passed away he gave me his old camera; A 'Chinon CM-3' to be...

    Not sure what's wrong..

    Heya! Just got my sweet D7100 picked up and I love it already. I studied media 3 years ago, photography was one of those three, there I learned a bit about using manual among other things but generally the basics outside 'auto'. I know ISO, shutter time, WB and the thing I've never said in...

    D5100 upgrade

    Hello TPF forum! This is my first post here and I basically joined since my interest in photography has increased alot lately. I'm looking for an upgrade, but I'm afraid I'm not quite sure what to look for. Buying something brand new is out of the question since I'm far from an enthusiast...
