  • Describe how cameras are different from the 20th century (1900-1999) and 21st century (Since 2000)?

    Best answer: The vast majority of the cameras of the 21st Century are all inside cellphones. Nokia is the world's largest camera manufacturer even though they technically do not make a stand-alone camera.

    Then there's WiFi and Bluetooth which allows for the transmission of data.

  • What Editing Software Allows for This Resizing? (Changes Dimensions Using Cover Picture to Fit Instagram Post Format)?

    I saw someone on Instagram make a post that looked like this and I Instantly wondered what they used to make this as I constantly struggle with getting my own videos to fit the post dimensions without looking bad.

  • Can anyone think of a way to use multiple lens and types to make things far away appear very close.?

    Best answer: Yes, it's called a tele-converter. They come in various sizes, the most popular among these are the 1.4x and 2x converters. The 1.4x converter will reduce the light from the lens by1 stop of light, while a 2x converter reduces the light by 2 stops. You don't mention what brand/model/type of camera... show more
    Best answer: Yes, it's called a tele-converter. They come in various sizes, the most popular among these are the 1.4x and 2x converters.
    The 1.4x converter will reduce the light from the lens by1 stop of light, while a 2x converter reduces the light by 2 stops.

    You don't mention what brand/model/type of camera you're using. You will need a camera with interchangeable lenses in order to use a tele-converter. The TC is first mounted onto the camera, then you mount your lens onto the TC.

    If your camera has a fixed lens like those in camcorders and point-and-shoot cameras, then you will need what is called a lens converter. These are add-on lenses originally designed specifically for camcorders since they have fixed lenses. However, if you buy one with the same filter thread size as your telephoto lens, it will strengthen it's power. These lens converters come in various strengths ranging from 2x about 5x. Down side is that most are cheaply made and will greatly reduce the image quality. This will be seen by a lack of sharpness especially in the corners/edges of the frame which can be downright blurry as hell. The really good ones can as much as $300-$600 which is as much as a real lens.

    Here's a link to B&H showing all of the teleconverters on the market. Use the filters on the left to reduce the results to just those that fit your camera and are within your budget. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Telec...

    The best brand to choose will likely be from the same manufacturer as your camera body. However, Sigma, Tokina and Tamron all make super good teleconverters at a lower price than those from Canon and Nikon. Also realize that the TC from Canon and Nikon often only fit their professional lenses. Canon, for example, their TC only fit their L series of lenses.

  • Best accessories for an Olympus OM-1?

    Best answer: 1.

Even though the 2nd book has digital in its title,... show more
    Best answer: 1. Books - Depending upon your friend's photographic knowledge, books on the fundamentals of photography such as Brian Peterson's "Understanding Exposure" and Tony Northrup's "Stunning digital photography" are two very good books. Even though the 2nd book has digital in its title, the basics are the same.

    Photo books from photographers that he likes are a great gift. It's critical for every photographer to study the work of past and present great photographers. Studying the past works teaches you how to be a better photographer.

    2. Motor winder - These can only be found used, but what they do is more than just advance the film. Auto winders advance film by about 1 frame per second (FPS). Motor drives or motor winders advance the film up to about 5 fps. They also usually have a second shutter release located on the bottom right corner of the unit. This enables the photographer to better hold the camera when taking vertical shots.

    3. Cable release. The OM-1 uses a traditional plunger type of cable release.

    4. Lens cleaning kit comprised of Ziess lens cleaning solution, a microfiber cleaning cloth and a Giotto Rocket Blower.

    5. Lens hood - This is to prevent lens flare when shooting into the sun. The right size will be strictly dependent upon the size fothe the filter threads. Some hoods are rubber which collapse for easier storage, while others are either metal or hard plastic.

    6. Tripod - Best brands are Manfrotto, Really Right Stuff, Gitzo.

    7. Flash that has a head that tilts and swivels. Look for one that has a high guide number (GN) of at least 120. The GN is not linear, so a flash that has a GN of say 80 is 2x more powerful than one that has a GN of just 56.

    8. Gift card to B&H (bhphotovideo.com) or adorama.com - Both are highly reputable brick-and-mortar photo stores out of New York. I strongly recommend that you go onto their sites and check out the photo accessory section for more ideas.

    9. Camera bag

    10. Polarizing filter - This is essential for outdoor shooting. It removes glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces thereby increasing details and color saturation.

    11. Film - There are all sorts of B&W, color print and color slide film still on the market.

    12. B&W filters - When using B&W film the resulting images will look somewhat flat in contrast if a filter wasn't used. A yellow filter creates normal contrast. Green filter will lighten green colors and darken red making a green filter really good for B&W portraits. Red filters will lighten reds and darken blues which makes the red filter excellent for landscapes where you want nice dark (or eve black) skies. Without a filter blue skies come out very pale.

    13. Portrait filters - These are diffusion filters used specifically for portraits. Tiffen's FX series is among the most favored by professional portrait photographers. I've the FX-3 filter which is just awesome.

    14. Lenses. Because the OM-1 system is totally abandoned by Olympus and all 3rd-party vendors, the prices for used gear has plummeted. You can get, for example, a macro lens that would cost a Nikon/Canon user $300-$500 for less than $100. Lenses like a 50mm f/1.4 are easily $400, but in the OM mount, you can find them for about $50. The 50mm f/1.4 is very popular because of it's excellent optical performance, light gathering capabilities for low-light photos, but especially because at f/1.4 it produce an extremely shallow area that's in focus (i.e. depth of field) which very, very popular.

    Go to keh.com and check out their stock - https://www.keh.com/shop/lenses/slr/olym... Keh.com always under rates the condition of their gear, the do their own repairs and they provide 6-month warranties, too. They very reputable. I've purchased almost all of my lenses from them.

  • Is it worth it to buy expired Polaroid Film?

    As someone born at the turn of the digital age, August 1999 to be exact, I got into Polaroids at the tail end of their lifespan. I used to have one of the last Polaroids made when I was little and it had gotten lost in the shuffle. It recently popped back up when my parents were moving me into my dorm this past fall and my grandma gave me a new, fresh in the box one-step from like the 80s and I have found cool ones that still work such as the Spice Girls version and the Taz version and plenty others. I have both the fujifilm instax wide and mini but I'm switching back to the original Polaroids because the cameras are not as delicate and can be replaced easy and the pictures look more classic. I bought some of the new generation film and it was an absurd price! Something like $80 for3 packs! As a college student that is not always feasible. I have been searching eBay for film and have come across a lot of expired film for sale and I'm wondering if it would worth it to buy some to keep my beloved Polaroids alive? I am by no means a photographer! The Polaroids are just a lil nostalgic to me and they are a fun novelty to have when drunk/stoned with friends and having a good time. I don't care if the quality isn't going to be the best, I just care that its decent enough.They give me something to look back on whenever I'm feeling sad or stressed out. Any advice on expired polaroid film would be greatly appreciated!

  • Is 35mm film photography a viable thing for a wedding photographer?

    Best answer: There are photographers out there that are making bank by shooting weddings with film ( including a regular to this forum: http://www.johnnymartyr.com/ Johnny Martyr.) . He has years of experience under his belt and is an expert at black and white photography (Kodak asked him to test its newly re-released P3200 film. That's God talking, that is, when you're good enough Kodak calls you.)

    It takes years of work and practice to get good at film (and digital actually.) You know how to use your gear, but I have no doubt you are rusty. I just shot some film for fun, and you know what, I had to stop, think, remember the tricks film requires. I had to remember how to print - all the little tricks that were second nature - think cigarette cellophane on a dodging tool, split filtering, flashing the paper for high contrast images.) Even after a few weeks, my skills were not back to where they were 13 years ago when I last printed in a darkroom. Not even close.

    I was shocked at the increase in cost of film, chemistry and paper. It was staggering. Paper is up by 200%. Chemistry is very expensive and you can't get a lot of the developers any more. No more microdol for example.

    You could work on your skills and get them up to very high end and offer them to a niche market. There will always be a niche market in weddings for film photogs. However, you might want to consider working on both film and digital (and yes, it is going to cost some cash.) I have a friend who is a successful wedding photographer and he does both film and digital at many of his weddings. Very few are just one or the other.

    You will need backups of everything so consider a system so your lenses are compatible with both your film and digital cameras. Canon, Nikon both do this as do some of the other major players.

    Photography is probably my biggest passion and it's been like this for a couple of years now. I would really love to be a professional photographer one day but I don't know where to start. I don't even have a camera I just take photos on my phone. Sadly I don't have a lot of money so I can't buy one & obviously I can't travel the world so I can't take fancy pics. Where I live there are not many exciting places I could photograph tbh. So how do I become a photographer when I don't have a camera and I have nothing worthy to take pictures of? I am trying to save up money but atm it's a bit hard and I don't wanna wait another few years to start doing sth to reach my goal you know... any advice? Also can you recommend any books or websites where I can learn more about photography? Thanks
