General Stock Discussion / Sony FDR-AX53 For 4k
« on: December 10, 2016, 12:49 »
Wondering if anybody has been using the Sony FDR-AX53 for 4k video and are the still images good enough for stock? Seems like a pretty good price point at $895.

I use MPEG Streamclip 1.2 on a PC.
It is a free download and works great.
Download it at http://www.squared5.com

The ads seem to be working. My SS video sales have more than doubled in the last few days.

I waited about 4 months for about a $190 payment and then sent them an email asking how much longer before I would be paid. They paid the next week. So, I wouldn't give up on them yet.

Same here. July BME and then August with miniscule number of sales so far.

One of you referred members must have had a sale. .04 is the normal referral fee.

In November of 2008, I read an article describing how to make extra income online in microstock photography. The idea intrigued me since I was already making a living at photography shooting weddings, beach portraits and other various types of commercial work. I thought that this could possibly be another source of income.

    After checking out some of the photographs on different microstock agency sites, I picked out ten photographs which I thought might sell. Some of the images had been taken a year or two earlier and were just sitting on one of my hard drives. I joined several agencies, uploaded the ten images and waited to see what would happen. Two weeks later, I had accumulated a sum of $2.58 spread across three different microstock agencies. And ...I was hooked.

But it started me thinking; if I could make that much in two weeks with just ten images that were just languishing on my computer hard drive anyway, how much could I make on a yearly basis if I had one hundred images online. What if I had one thousand images online, or two thousand or possibly ten thousand. Visions of vast sums of money visualized before my eyes. And that is how my journey into microstock photography began.

After clicking export on MPEG Streamclip, there is an "Adjustments" button in the bottom right corner above the "Make Movie" button. Another menu comes up which allows you to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation and volume. Works great for me.

I have over 600 video files on Pond5. Jan and Feb sales were good but March, April and so far this month sales seem to have dropped off and are down about 50% of what they were previously.

I shoot a lot of video clips but have never had much luck with underwater shots.

For editing I use MPEG Streamclip for Windows, Version 1.2

It allows you to set in and out points and change saturation and brightness, contrast, etc. You can even resize the image. It really does everything I need. Best of all, its a free download.

Good Luck!
