Thanks everybody for your tips.

I need to print it in 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 in the event.  Its a family day in a school event.  Also there will be other in a Karate event.

I try to find the Snaplab Sony but its all sold everywhere and by the way very very expensive, but i think the quality must be outstanding.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

Thanks.
Correct, maybe one that fits in the back of a car or any table but with battery, cause in some places there is no power.

Which one you recommend?
That is what an Inverter is for.

Thanks for the tip, then which printer you think might works well to print photos right away?

Guys.

Check this important video of SS  :)



Why all of us dont make our own HS.  ;)

It seems a little complicated this issue.  How did the big guys in this business do?

This can be a company too if you grow high on this and i pretty sure they have many designers to upload more and more.

Maybe they are paying a lawyer to be well covered.

Thanks for all the great replies :)

Hi.

Does anybody has a contract when someone give you the full right of the photo or even a design.  I ask this because i have a designer and i would like to have everything clear with him.

Many thanks.

I'm in Orlando, and I have footage available on Pond5, CanStockPhoto, and IS.  Nothing recent, though, because I've been concentrating on stills lately.

Many thanks CS

I send you a mail over here.

Many thanks the rest for the help.

I lived in Orlando once for 8 months. I dont suppose that helps?
Hi Tyler.

Nop, many thanks.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Android Apps for Stock
« on: November 01, 2012, 14:25 »
Thank you, I've downloaded the new one, deleted the ancient, installed the new one, but the application is nowhere on the phone, I can not find it, so I can not launch it! The new file is very small (153k) compared to the old one (432k), is it normal??
I've also tried to install the old one and install update just after, then I have always the same problem: the agencies earnings still not work, no change at all.
There is no menu to check the current version installed???

Yes it is.

I will send you a private mail to send you directly to your mail.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Underwater photos camera
« on: October 28, 2012, 15:23 »
Then you have macro and wide angle ports, extension rings, ports, gears, sync cords, strobe arms, aiming lights, diopters, tools, and one big thing is knowledge of trouble shooting your system when it doesn't work.  Take it from me and sgoodwin...you need spectacular stuff and it is very selective in terms of what buyers purchase. One of my biggest frustrations was to have National Geographic purchase two of my images for about 50 cents each for web use.  A good system can run you $15,000 with the right lenses, camera and all the accessories you need to be competitive.  Look at what I just said.  I got 50 cents for a underwater image.  That can take more than a lifetime to re-coup your costs.  I have my system because I am in the industry, so uploading UW images is just because I have them, not because I went out and bought a system to get them for MS.

Many thanks Mantis.  I Will do what you recommend.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Underwater photos camera
« on: October 28, 2012, 13:05 »
I wouldn't recommend doing much underwater photography for microstock sites unless you have a very strong interest.  Costs for good underwater gear are just too high and returns too low unless you're a real pro (and maybe for them as well).

I've used several cameras with underwater housings, from P&S to DSLR.  They all work fine, but to get acceptable sharpness for stock you will need a strobe light or two unless you are somewhere with very clear water, and underwater strobes cost a fortune.  Plus a shock-resistant case to transport all of your gear, etc., and with the tough competition from some excellent underwater specialist photographers out there it will be difficult or impossible to earn back your investment.

That said, there are plenty of underwater housings for almost every camera out there including the 5D - see here (http://wetpixel.com/i.php/full/canon-5d-mark-ii-housing-shootout/) for some comparisons.  Plenty of others are available.  You will probably spend 2-3 times the cost of the camera for decent underwater gear.  If you live somewhere where you can go diving a lot or otherwise will use it for a lot of pool shots you might be able to get your investment back, otherwise just do it for fun and if you get a few decent stock shots it's all for the better.  For example, I just searched on iStock for coral reef fish and got over 7500 images.  If you sort by downloads there are lots with blue and gold flames.  However, almost all of those are 5 years old or older.  If you look at the the best shots from the past six months they usually have no DLS yet, although I did find one with 3.  That's going to be a very long time to pay off your equipment, if ever.  So I wouldn't bother unless you're a serious scuba diver and have money to burn.


Excellent explanation.  Many thanks for your suggestion.

Which camera you recommend that is good for underwater photos in stock sites?

Or if you reccomend a special cover for an existant camera.  I have a 5d but i think is too heavy to manage under the water and i havent seen any special cover for that one.

Many thanks for your recommendations.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Wacom tablets
« on: October 28, 2012, 10:10 »
I've been using tablets for 10+ years. Those are too small in my opinion. Go one size larger and you'll find much more control over detail and less strain on your fingers.  8)

Hello.

Im want to buy a Wacom tablet to test on my designs in photoshop.

I just want to draw on images in photoshop.

Which one you recommend.

I saw the Wacom splash and the wacom capture.
