The Fuji X pro 1 is well-regarded. Needs a large pocket but is very much in the footsteps of Leica in terms of image and lenses. Fast, compact lenses and interchangeable too. You should be able to fins a used one within your budget. It does have a baby brother catchily called the X-M 1 which has a short 3.5 zoom and would leave you plenty of change.



Looking at that one, and sample images, it's a great camera, but it is too big for a pocket, what with the lens as well. Also I need a camera that if noticed by the venue security they won't think it's a pro camera, as they're not allowed in most music venues. But I have found this other Panasonic compact, LX100, which fits the bill. It will just fit in my pocket without a problem, doesn't look like a pro camera, and is probably the best I can get for my money. I might go with this one. The video below is from taken with the actual camera and looks great.

Too be honest its not really a discussion worth having. The sensors aren't changeable.

Instead just go and find yourself a camera that does what to want it too and takes pictures like you want.

If it works and takes great photos, who cares what sensor is in there?



I know the sensors aren't changeable, Was asking for some advice, Can't check out image quality unless I buy and if its crap it's a bit late. Very happy with what my DSLR produces, Had D100, D80, and am now on a D700, Been on internet and scoured what the advantages and disadvantages are seem CMOS is less sensitive to light but is better for video, Which is not a concern.

You've had some great advice so far. Its probably user error, but the best way to test would be -

Put the camera on a tripod and shoot in a room with no direct sunlight, don't move the camera. Just run off several frames.

If the photos go in a sequence, correctly exposed, under, over, correct, under, over, correct, under, over (or similar) then its auto bracketing that's on and causing your problem.

If the images are consistent then the camera is probably ok. Otherwise it may have a fault.

Repeat outside. Hopefully its all OK now.

Then making sure that bracketing is not on, shoot a dark area then a bright area. Again the camera should be able to cope, as long as you don't move the camera and keep shooting several frames into that dark and then into that light area, it should be consistent even if its wrong.

If it is consistent, but wrong then it may indicate the wrong metering mode.

If you still have problems then the final test would be to shoot those dark and light areas in manual mode, it doesn't matter if you get the exposure wrong. We just have to ensure each image is consistent.

If its still doing it in manual mode and auto bracketing definitely isn't on then in most certainly faulty.

If its fine in manual, but not in AV, then its possible you have a problem, but its still possible that there are user errors, I'd need a lot more detail at this point to assist you further.

Paul.

There are loads of location companies out there that will be able to source this for you.

Plus there are plenty of houses out there that can be rented or used. Sometimes hotels, clubs, restaurants etc. will let you use the locations for free as long as you give them some publicity, but from experience they'll not even speak to you or discuss it unless you are a high quality professional photographer with lots of previous experience and credentials.

They want publicity, but they don't want bad publicity and crap, amateur photos posted on social media with blurb describing how they shot there and did this and that is most definitely bad publicity.

Too many venue have been burnt like this in the past. If we ever use a junior behind the scenes photographer we have to have a very tight contract that they won't use the photos.

The very first of our Sunday group shoots here in Gosport will be with the lovely Nicky Philips. 2 sessions of 2 hours with 4 photographers at each session. Nicky will be posing through many styles and genres finishing with figure nude.
 I set the lights and scenes so this really is an opportunity to add pictures of a beautiful model in several styles to any portfolio at an economical rate. Of course these events have also become well known for their social activity with an opportunity to meet and chat with like minded photographers. Always well organised and everyone takes it in turns.
 
session 1 12.30pm to 2.30pm
 
Session 2 3pm to 5pm
 
£50 per photographer just  3 places left on each session

I have seen take down notices mentioned in the past - on purestorm, its a pretty common "trend" but that wasn't what this post was about - the professional landscape photographer this happened to knows how to deal with the situation, shes had it happen before and will have it happen again no doubt. 

It was purely a question of - could you socialise with people who had done this in the past?




In this case, the answer I gave to your question — which was that no, I would not bring a work problem into a social situation — remains correct.

I have a brand new, never been used before Lowepro Vertex 300 AW.

The story is that I purchased this bag online. Unfortunately I ordered the 300 AW instead of the 200 AW. I only realized my mistake a few weeks later.

It’s a fantastic bag. Loads and loads of space. It’s the AW range (All Weather) So comes with the built in rain protector.

You can read the full specs on the Lowpro website. And a video can be found on my website. Just click the link on the HomePage

Just a note: the website says YES to Carry On Luggage Compatible. But that may only be for USA airlines. It might make it in a squeeze with UK airlines. Check before trying to take it as Carry On. (Mentioned to be by a friend)

Reason for selling: It’s just a bit too big for what I need and I missed the 2 week return item date.

I have since replaced it with a different LowPro and just been too lazy to sell this one off.

Asking price is £123.79 Baring in mind. Brand new from LowPro website is £236.00 and mine has never been used.

Serious offers only. No trade. Cash only. Delivery within reason (Update: Car is currently out of action, so collection only at this point - sorry) (Sidcup, Kent) Or collection.

Images of the bag are also on my website.

Biggest problem I see in your modelling is a lack of emotion/mood/engagement. If that's something you struggle to do yourself, as seems to be the case, then you really need to find photographers who can help you with that aspect. Having said that ALL the images currently in your port are from the same photographer so maybe you have work with other photographers which gives a much better representation of that side of your modelling.

Quote from dhuntuk
Yes, I have worked out that I have to underexpose by exactly one half of a stop to reliably get the images I need after performing a white/grey balance. ie. Measure for f5.6 5/10 and shoot at f8. I cannot make sense of the histogram as it is all gobbledegook to me!




The histogram is not that hard once you've checked it out on the Internet. It's a good way of making sure that you are not overexposing an image by clipping the right-hand side, or under exposing an image by clipping the left-hand side.
 
Every time I look it up on the Internet I always come across this saying, "shoot to the right." I'm sure loads of photographers on here could explain what that means better than me, but as I am one of the few people left on the forum I suppose I ought to have a go.

In simplistic terms you ideally need the spikes on your histogram to be on the right side, but not so far right that they are right up against the corner or your image will turn out to be overexposed.
 
The same principle applies to the left-hand side. Only this time, if you are clipping the left side then your image will be underexposed.
 
Hope that makes sense.laugh
