Friendly and civil discussion about going Sony

Hello /p/

I come to you with a dilemma. A few months ago, my house was broken into by some urban youths and my dry cabinet with my Canon 5DMIV and L Lenses was stolen. Police did their thing, and my home insurance paid me out the total replacement value for my goods.

I figured now would be a good time to go mirrorless since I'm sitting on a good chunk of money and can afford to get a mid tier body and a trio of good lenses. My first instinct was to go back to Canon with the R6MKII or R5 and the 2.8 zooms but holy fuck are they about 30% more expensive than their DSLR and EF counterparts. I'd actually have to add some more out of my savings just to get the shit I want.

This obviously had me looking at Snoy. All the memes and influencer bait aside, it seems like they actually make pretty decent cameras and native lenses- as well as allowing Sigma and other manufacturers access to their AF mount. I can rebuild my kit and even have some left over to put towards a video oriented camera like the ZV-E1.

That's gotten me really interested since I've been shooting a lot more video lately. My dad has early stages of Alzheimer's so I've secretly been making vids of our family life, trips we take, places we go to eat, even when I visit him to walk our dog- just so he has something he can hopefully watch one day if things get worse. So having something that really can take stills and shoot great video with the same lenses is really attractive to me.

So please /p/, help a brother out. I don't spend too much time online since I'm mostly an analog shooter and used digital for weddings/engagement for some extra $$$. I don't know if Sony has fixed people's complaints regarding build quality, shit menus, or CoLOr ScIEnCE that people like to say are big reasons to avoid them.

I've been trying to do my research but everyone on YouTube is a shill and I can only check Ken Rockwell's site too many times without supporting his growing famaily.

Dear god, even Gerald is Dunking on Fuji onions. Why don't these people realize that they aren't 'misunderstood', they are just unlikable pretentious cunts on a budget since they'd all desperately like to shoot Lecia instead.

/fgt/ daily reminder (courtesy by anon): one stop per decade is (generally) bullshit
>negative film ages better than positive
>black and white better than color
>slow films better than fast
>storage conditions (dry/cool) matter more than years
>Negative film is shot 1 or 2 stops overexposed and then PULLED in development so that you build more density in the exposure and develop less such that the fog is limited
>slide/positive film is shot at box speed or overexposed and pulled.
>if you home develop you can also use benzotriazole as a restrainer for the the first developer in E6 process

Night Shots / Lowlight Thread (also Goodbye)

been a long time guys, having a kid and a fucking meth-head crazy dog AND being an arborist climbing trees year-round doesn't give me much time to shoot anymore. Other than the 3 or 4 opportunities I'm given to go shoot, i just don't really want to anymore.

This will probably be the last time i post here, some of these are new, taken with my trusty old Ricoh Gr i got way back in 2015 (which i never ONCE dealt with the *dust* issue), some with my Nikon d750, and a few from my Samsung S10/Google Pixel 7 phones.

A lot of these are going to be old files I've either re-edited, or old RAWs i never got around to touching, and just recently gave them my best shot. I will also add a few photos i think are my absolute best (i will label them as such), feel free to shit on as many of them as hard as you want, ill bite the pillow and take it dry.

Anyways, its been a great 10 years on this god forbidden board, and even though gear faggotry never slowed (in fact, it got worse, thanks Sony) you guys were the ones that taught me everything i know. From taking and giving criticism, to techniques and genuinely great advice, i got it from here (i still miss Bass). Thanks guys, its been fun.

Anyways, feel free to post any old or recent lowlight/night shots you've taken. It doesn't have to be recent either, post night shots from years ago that you're the most proud of, id love to see.
