First time using an SLR, first time using a 28mm, first time developing! I need to get a dust blower and try not to scratch the shit out of the film, but I kind of like it

Bought two used polaroids off ebay for $40 of couple of months ago, best photo-related investment I've made in a while.

Best cop all year has been buying a (used!) Sony RX-100ii. It's such an amazing camera for being such a tiny size. It's amazing to be able to be able to carry around such a great camera in your pocket, my DSLR barely gets any use anymore due to its size.

just found an old canon japan autoboy/ AF35M at an antique mall for $2, need to get some batteries and color film in there and start shooting. Giving it to a friend of mine after i finish off a roll tho because i never would use it and i know he'd get much more use out of it.

First time doing film photography, picked up an Olympus mju-ii for £2 at a flea market and got carried away. Here are some of the results:

today because i didn't want to bring my entire camera home, i put my sd card in the pocket where i also put my phone, thinking that i'd be sure to remember it's there and to take it out when i get home. but i totally wasn't thinking about how it could just, you know, fall out every time i pulled out my phone. so it fell out somewhere and it could be in any number of locations between my school and my bedroom so all those photos/videos are pretty much gone forever

surprisingly though, i'm not as upset as i thought i would be right now. i've been telling myself things like:
  • if all those photos weren't important enough to me to transfer them over to my computer, how big of a deal is their loss anyway?
  • i only began learning photography this year and i will most likely think those photos are terrible or stupidly generic when i look back at them in a year
  • (of vacation pictures over winter break mostly in hk) my memory works fine, i don't need pictures of things or places to appreciate their existence and impact in my life
  • i still have the disposable cameras i shot with which are much harder to lose than an sd card!! i'm really excited to get them developed, particularly one i filled up while walking around at 5am around hong kong on new years. also still have pics from iphone. i think my favorite photo from that time is on there actually, it's this
    Spoiler:
    Image
    of my dad and his friend since childhood (!) being cute and happy in a dessert place they used to go to across from their high school in china. i can't read the writing but it makes me want to try learning again
  • realizing i hate the bulkiness of my current camera and i only pull it out for shooting/filming carefully thought out scenes, which atm happens exclusively when i get assignments from classes and never for personal development of ideas
  • realizing i don't care much for crispy high res stuff (in my own photography)
  • realizing i should get a smaller more portable camera. probably a film camera, cuz i like the not-having-immediate-results of using disposable cameras but i want more settings to be able to adjust

i will most likely be hitting up some thrifts or local camera stores to pick up anything i see that works, but having basically 0 idea about film cameras, how do i even test if it works? what common problems should i be watching out for?

or if you have any recommendations or just want to give me some ebay links, these are my only requirements
cheapp - under $50
must fit in my jacket pocket. so fujifilm disposable size, 4 x 2 x 1.25 inches, or anything around that give or take a few, is perfect

I've started taking at least one snapshot every day, usually with my phone. so the quality isn't always great, but I've enjoyed it as an experiment in being more present to the moment and motivation to find something worth capturing in each day. here's a few recent ones

Anyone have any experience with cheapo amazon lighting kits? Trying to get something more substantial set up my vintage resale endeavors and waiting for good lighting for two hours a day just isn't cutting it and also objectively does not look good. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask!

@alby just pants/shirts/smaller outwear, that's what i'm thinking would be best, maybe two just to be sure and a backdrop? there are a couple packaged setups on amazon for between 50 and 100 with okay reviews, just kind of apprehensive about it being so cheap and I have zero experience with lighting.

hey um, stranger in a strange land here

* what's the digital camera equivalent of clarks desert boots?
** and what's the digital camera equivalent of finding a pair of used generic desert boots on ebay?

* how much should I expect to pay for a digital camera before it's better than a samsung s6's camera?

i couldn't exactly fit this into a rep comment so here we go:

i'm a big proponent of using prime lens type cameras, and i'm not a big fan of large dslrs (or large mirrorless for that manner). although to be fair i p much strictly shoot street (dabble in some editorial stuff too), so take this advice w/ a grain of salt if u arent into that stuff

considering price vs image quality, my highest reccs are

fuji x100 (or x100s/t, may be slightly more expensive) - comes w/ a 35mm eq. lens. these are fantastic fixed lens cameras, and on the plus side u can find them used for <$500! a good price

ricoh gr - comes w/ a 28mm eq. lens. these are really discreet point & shoot cameras which means u don't really draw too much attention to yourself using it. still shoots magnificent images. (daido moriyama uses a ricoh gr (and used when the gr was a film camera too)). good prices on used ones too also <$500 ish


-----
i'd also trawl thru the flickr groups for sample shots on both cameras. also ppl also sell in the flickr groups for super cheap time to time! check it out

tag on - the sony a6k models are (in my opinion) the cbd of cameras. also mirrorless and crop sensor like the fujis, I think they allow for more modularity as you can adapt old lenses and use new lenses that are relatively small (19mm prime and 30mm prime and pancake in size)

an a6k can be found for probably 250-350 used on craigslist.
an a6300 could be found for probably 500, and an a6500 probably for around 700. the a6k is more than adequate and is a very good camera. like funchables said, check out respective camera groups on flickr. all in all, any modern digital camera is great and if it shoots raw you can't go wrong. if you decide to go Sony and have any questions hmu. I have an A7 (the a6k's bigger brother) and I love the camera. shameless plug if you want to see picture i've taken with the a7

Do any of you use Flickr? If so, should we set up a c-t flickr to share pictures and flintstone. I know many of us share similar interests and it could be cool to see how they manifest themselves in the photos we take. Let me know and I could look into setting it up.

Edit: or just a cool way to share dog pics ya know.
