I wanna take out my camera sometime and take photos :blobcat_camera:

I like shooting prime/manual and Chinese manufacturers like Kamlan make very decent versions of mid-1900s German/Soviet lenses for very cheap compared to really modern ones. And I sure don’t care about a bit of lost sharpness or distortion when I can shoot at F/2 for cheap

My dad has some beautiful Summicron lenses and shooting with those really got me into it. Only took a $10 passive adapter


Mirrorless cameras make shooting full manual a walk in the park for anything but fast-moving subjects because you can just enable focus peaking and get an instant display of where the focal plane is
