At first I was like $6K for a chair? But after you sit in one you're like damnnnnnnn.

They aren't even that comfy but yeah, stylish. I love Bauhaus influenced design (check out Wilhelm Wagenfeld). I think you can get replicas for ~1500€, still a lot for a chair lol

What are some dope things you can do with that camera? I know nothing about cameras. Could you film a surreal art-house cult masterpiece with that bad boy?

For most usages medium format cameras are probably worse than regular DLSRs, just a bit cumbersome, but they produce ultra high res photos because they have a huge sensor, with virtually no visible noise, even if you crank up the ISO. Usually the digital ones make pictures with many many pixels so you can zoom in and use only a tiny detail of the picture and still have it in acceptable resolution . Nodboy really needs them, though, I guess, except for very specific usages

I don't know all of the jargon there, but I have gathered enough information to satisfactorily quench my thirst for knowledge about that camera and its extravagant abilities.

Mate those things are ridiculously comfortable. I had the luxury of sitting in one for a short while, and have been trying to justify buying one ever since. 
nice choice on the hasselblad by the way - I have some pro photographer friends (as in they make an actual living off it) and they both want a hasselblad.

Stuff like hasselblads and leicas are not worth their price tag. It's gate keeping. They are assembling parts together, leica has hand-made assembly (production is machined). There are 8 semi-conductor and sensor manufacturers in the world, and a couple of lens manufacturers. None of them are leica or hasselblad. They are relics of the film era, used by famous people. Leica is a luxury product, hasselblad had good mechanics, top of the line zeiss lens and modular design. Now it just has medium format sensor and modular design. A couple of years ago I was looking up a hasselblad digital model and it was obsolete and outclassed by its competitors by a huge margin (not justifying their inflated price).

I watched a dude do some architectural shooting for a magazine with a hasselblad, he looked so authoritative shooting with it.

We owe a ton of money to China. Fuck paying them though. I think that should be our mission, actually. Just make everything in America so everyone can get a job and then just enjoy never, ever paying China for shit. 

Can’t tell if serious...

Yeah, this is accurate.

Zeiss lenses, though.... ooof. I wanna lick them. But Samyang makes also great manual lenses of similar quality that cost a fraction of the price

Oh let us buy sensible cameras then, like a bunch of communists.

Yeah those large calibre zeiss lens were razor-sharp and clear. Samyang, tamron are all good third-party lens.

In my opinion if anyone wants to dabble in film photography, get yourself a pentax mx5. Small, light, SLR, sturdy, good mechanics, built-in lightmeter, you can get excellent lens from almost any manufacturer  (by way of adapters). The viewfinder is excellent, on ebay yoz can get mint condition for a very good price.

Thanks, seems you can get those for as little as 50€, thought about tapping into analogue photography (mostly because of the shenanigans you can do during the developing process)

Economic nationalism is the way forward. Nationalise the lot. It's good for the environment too I guess, better off making things you can make at home, and only importing stuff you can't grow/make, rather than importing vegetables/ fruit that can easily be made in your own country and having to ship/ fly it then bring it by lorry.

I propose milkface for compulsory labour in the vegetable fields to replace the immigrants. I hope milky wasn't hoping to be part of the nationalist elite who wouldn't have to do any hard work?

If you were one of the men that got any, yes.

I've read somewhere that in the Inca empire that privilege was only extended to the royal family and only the very top level of it, too. Everyone else had to perform manual labor.

Can y'all please take your discussion of dialectical materialism elsewhere, this thread is for super aspirational bourgie shit you want to buy and might actually be able to buy (I'm assuming we have no multi-millionaires on here).

I'm far left, economic nationalism isnt what you think it is. I'd be happy to work on some fields as long as I was paid a living wage.

      I didn't get bitten by the streaming bug 'til I tried out Apple Music around 6 months ago; I tried Spotify and the lot but didn't really get into it cus of the bad interface (+ ogg vorbis). Once I found out that Apple Music had seamless integration with their library and your local library + tag editing I was hooked, the convenience of this platform has made it almost impossible to go back to my 100% local library. The question that's been biting me ever since has been, "Is this moral?" not only is Apple (and every other streaming service) paying artists close to nothing, but also technically restricting the user's freedom with DRM.
       
      Are streaming services further contributing to the corporate control over the music industry by shafting indie labels and individuals in the name of convenience? Do they cheapen the art form? Is any of this morally acceptable?
