>It's a very good camera if it's the right camera for your needs. Potential for fantastic lenses if you can afford them. For instance, the f/1.2 lens referenced here
Thanks, so you don't recommend it to a (not entirely) beginner, right?
Well if you're a beginner with enough money to afford it, I very much suggest it. Even the kit lens that comes with it is excellent. And there are inexpensive lenses that you can use with it that aren't terrible. If I were just starting out today, I would probably want an X-T1 or X-T10. But if you only have $600 to spend, you may want to look elsewhere.
>somehow gets completely empty shots
This is Arashiyama in Kyoto. It's packed full with people even if you go there early in the morning. If you go too early, of course, it's just dark. I have no idea what you have to do to take this shot. Heal out all the people?
Looks like a long exposure, which erases moving objects very readily. That's like, basic photo tip #12.
Of course, he's also Japanese, so maybe he just knows a time to go when there ISN'T a lot of people.
I guess it's the former, since there are always people there. Some places are just never empty in Kyoto. You can go up its most famous mountain in complete dark and there will be someone hiking down the trail shouting "good morning" at you.
If you're talking usd I believe the Sony a6000 is about $500 (body only) I'd personally recommend that. One thing is the kit lens is supposed to be pretty shitty from what I've heard so I'd recommend looking at getting the body only and dropping a bit more cash on a better lens
i've tried 2 of the kit lens.
1 is pretty sharp at, the other is not as sharp.
so you're getting a crapshoot with the kit lens.
the distortion are all fixed in post.
you would be a fool to pass on the kit lens for so little money.
>Ask people to kindly not walk in your shot, only gonna take 5s bro
DONE. EZ. What's so hard to understand? I once thought it was impossible to get a 1m+ exposure of my street, turns out all it took was a bit of patience.
yes it really is. Consider waiting a few months to buy Fuji cameras as they are releasing new cameras this year with even noicer new sensors
If you dont want to wait, at least look at the x-T1 before you settle for an X-T10
you've got to be kidding me that the lens he's using is a grand.
this you're kidding yourself if you expect significantly better photos from full frame.
that's actually interesting an interesting comparison. It's nice actually to find a site where it lays out specs in an easy to read format.
>you've got to be kidding me that the lens he's using is a grand.
I am not kidding you. Why would I "got to be kidding you"?
If you're buying a camera because of how someones pictures look using that camera, you're retarded. These images can be taken with any comparable camera from any brand, all they require is a comparable lens, and some heavy post-processing work. Camera isn't really gonna make a bit of difference in this case.
Hell, outside the shallow DoF ones (blurry background), they could all be done with just a simple point and shoot.
