Hello,

The Nikon D5300 user found this record:

You can not decode or encode AVC / H.264 for commercial use

Other SLR camera and which also have a similar record.

Can you legally convert videos to another format, eg. QuickTime Photo .jpg? I do not know whether the encoding and decoding of the instruction means that you can not legally convert video to another format to be able to sell the movie by your own?

Thanks for the link. I understand that is not converted  :( So the camera is useless. What are the commercial camera without H.264 and AVCHD?

we've directly asked MPEG-LA whether or not using an H.264 camera simply to shoot video for a commercial purpose requires a license, and the answer is no

the MPEG-LA's general position that only the final link in the chain -- the party selling or distributing the video to the end user -- has to pay royalties for using the H.264 encoder


Since iStock (and presumably the other stock sites) do not distribute h.264 content you should be good to go. But this is not legal advice.
