Inherited a collection of old Carl Zeiss lenses, can I use them with digital camera’s and what might be their worth ? Hi, I inherited a collection of lenses from my father. Some are dating from Carl Zeiss in the DDR. I was wondering what they are worth. I’m also wondering if they can be used with todays digital camera’s, so I might keep them, or if they are only good for all analogue photography ? Kind regards, Michiel https://preview.redd.it/iudl13jndncd1.jpg…

Shot in raw and tweaked in Lightroom, …

She doesn’t care which camera she gets and wants me to choose. Are they both capable of multiple exposures? What is the difference between them? Which one should I keep? Thank you in advance! sub…

Hiring Street Photographers for Weddings?

Hiring Street Photographers for Weddings? To preface: I’m not getting married and am only asking out of curiosity. So I know most people will logically hire wedding photographers for a wedding because that’s their professional focus and that’s what they’re best at. But, with that being said, street photographers are known for capturing rather candid moments in time, and their works may…

Canon or Sony? Imminent beginner photographer here. I’m not one to upgrade equipment regularly (years and years) so I would like to buy something that has more advanced features to allow me to grow. Even if I don’t get into photography, my thought is that I’ll have a camera that will last me a long time. I would ideally like to take family and portrait photogr…

Freelance press photography – typically what is the process? I have covered concerts in the past but I’m thinking about moving more into current events, specifically local news. With concerts I had set up a website with a small bio and showcased some of my concert images. I would typically email the record label, venue, or contact the band directly (if they are smaller) and include my website. Sometimes I…

Is Fuji 200 (presumably Superia Xtra?) just rebranded ColorPlus? I’ve heard that some people say that Superia Xtra 400 that’s made in the US is basically just rebranded UltraMax! I picked up some iso 200 fuji branded film from Target and it doesn’t have a dedicated name.

I find myself wanting to take pictures of more wildlife/animals, and my zoom doesn’t suffice for that. I was also…
