So, what cameras do you guys use to film your /out/ings?

I have a Canon Powershot S70. It's like 11 years old, but I do ok with it, considering. Quite a few good night shots and long exposures in my day!

I also have an Oregon Scientific ATC9K HD action cam and an ATC3K SD action cam.

And then various tripods and mounts and suchjunk.

I really want a DSLR but I became nonemployed and unhoused around the time I was looking at them.

fook me
I'm trying to find a decent camera that will capture 1080p at 30 to 60 fps and that does sound well. I tried to record a trip /out/ but my Samsung S3 suffered from the wind sounds heavily, and the camera fps at 1080p is awful.

the ATC9K does nice video, 30 or 60fps (although I think at 1080 it only does 30 and at 720 it'll do 60, may be wrong as I've seldom done it).

the problem with all the waterproof cameras is the microphone. I haven't really heard a self-contained action cam make better than tinny chitnzy sound recordings. the professional ones use external mics and it's a whole different ballgame.

I use a Cabelas binoculars sling that you wear around both shoulders, then my backpack over it.
50mm f1.8 lens, 75-300mm lens, and stock 18-55mm lens.

I like all the lenses, but I wish I had a lens with a wide range like 18-200, because carrying lenses in a pack and changing them in the field is kind of annoying.

Cool stuff Muley. My ATC9K >>346361 does timelapse photos, but the quality of its still images isn't really as good as the video. I usually take video and then do screen grabs or speed it up 10,000% or something to make timelapses. I have some good ones - sunrises, storms blowing through, mountainbiking, etc.

man I'm trying to r'search DSLRs that are weather resistant and it's so hard to figure-out what features you can live without and what price is actually best value. Pentax seems to have some decent ones but for the features/price it would have to be reliably weather sealed but idunno if it is and idunno what to buy ':|

>>346492Weird; shutter...
Weird; shutter speed on my Contour will go up to 1/4-sec on stills, which makes it infinitely better for low-light situations. The fastest it'll take is one shot every second, but even then it's still totally useable (and greatly improves battery life).

That, and I don't have the patience to sit down and edit/produce/upload a video, when I can flip through and keep the handful of good shots it took then just blow the rest away.

When I'm racing I switch to video, nice to go back and review what I fucked up.
Anonymous 07/10/14(Thu)05:41 UTC+1 No.346544 Report

aah yeah my ATC doesn't really let you easily adjust settings. it does have night a night mode (in addition to general exposure adjustments). the night mode slows the shutter speed down but it's overall not very good in low light.

i find it to be pretty convenient to have everything as video for what i do. just skim through it, grab some shots if i want, and of course i love producing little fast-forward videos of things

>>346496The glass you...
The glass you screw to the front of it makes a bigger difference than all the fancy features the body has. And, the body's the cheap part. Settle on the glass/format you want and budget for that rather than just the body.

A zoom lens that isn't sealed is gonna suck in dust, snow, moisture, etc regardless of how well the body's sealed.

My D90 isn't "sealed" like the D300's are, but I've not had a problem in light rain or snow. I take care of my equipment, but it gets used too.

Pentax makes some nice stuff. Buddy did stunts/sfx for a promo vid for the Pentax K7 cameras: ?v=Vez7qSrZfpc

I was the only one at this race that had both a media pass (shot saturday's snocross race) and a racer's wristband (hill-x and drags on sunday).

Mine doesn't let me adjust shit. I tell it to do video at some resolution, or take a picture every x-number of seconds, and it does it. I have -zero- control over exposure, aperture, ISO, etc. Once the format's chosen and saved to the unit from a computer, your only options are record and stop.

I've tried some sunset-timelapse stuff, but because of the lack of control, they don't always come out that great. The camera's a lot better for sports/action (kind of its design intent).

Should hook up my intervalometer and use my Nikon for that sort of thing.

>but this little thing is every bit as good

It physically can't be. Sadly there is no substitute for sensor size (MF digital back>35mm full frame>DX/APS-C > 4/3 > compact >phonecam) whether it's resolution, low light noise, or selective focus control due to lens focal length. Not to mention RAW vs JPG. The question is, what kind of image quality do you actually need vs how much do you want to spend or carry.

Pretty much this.

My phone has a 10 megapixel camera on it. It fucking sucks at 10 megapixels. I'd be perfectly happy if it cranked out a 2-megapixel image, and each pixel on the sensor had 4x the surface area to capture photons.

More megapickles doesn't mean your'e getting a higher quality image, even though it's often marketed that way.

You only got the selective focus part right. Something like today's RX100 iii compact would shit all over a first-gen DSLR in resolution, low-light noise, and even dynamic range despite its sensor being several times smaller in area. Advances in sensor technology can improve these things, but yes, shallow-depth of field is a function of sensor size, aperture, and focal length.

Pentax has excellent bodies, but any lens they offer that isnt entry level or good value is hella expensive compared to a Canikon equivalent.

Now i dont know how much you absolutely need sealing, but you could always improvise and make your own lens covering.

My first DSLR was an entry level Pentax K2000 and i took it out in rain, snow and it fared out pretty well as long as i periodically wiped it

Most entry DSLRs can take harsh weather pretty well, the reason that they arent advertised as such is because then some retard would probably 'test' their new camera and fuck it up beyond repair.

I don't film them in the sense of moving pictures.

I usually bring a lumix lx3 with me if I'm going lightweight, because it's got the 24mm(equiv) lens. It's pretty great and I have a tiltpod for it that weighs nothing and lets me do most of the stuff I can with a tripod.

I used to have a Zenza Bronica ETRS 6x45 film camera that I would take out to shoot abandoned buildings and stuff with, but I gave that away a couple years ago. Currently I've been using a yashicamat tlr, but the lens isn't too great on that.......

So I actually ordered a Bronica SQ-AI 6x6 slr, it came with 50mm. 80mm lenses and a nice long air release for the shutter. I intend on finding a nice lightweight sturdy tripod, then taking the bronica backpacking with me for the sole purpose of photographing nice landscapes.

Old cameras are nice, I have an inherited Leica that is one of my most prized possessions. But as a relative old timer who grew up shooting on film and resisted change for many years, only an idiot would not primarily use digital these days.

I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree there. I don't want to start a film vs digital flamewar, but frankly you can't match the quality achieved by MF or LF cameras and good slide film, especially for landscape and architecture photography.

I still use digital and film both, and they both have strengths and weaknesses. I just don't agree with your statement about being an idiot if you don't primarily shoot digital.

Check out this guy: http://alexburkephoto.com/ he's a pretty /out/ tier dude who posts on /p/. He uses a view camera and hauls it out into the mountains of Colorado. You don't need a mule to haul one of these into the back-country.
