Cameras / Lenses / Re: add bmpc 6k or sell 5div and buy r5?
« on: August 14, 2020, 05:09 »
so more portability which always is of great benefit for stock shooters.

yea more portability what i really want :D
and because od that i thinking about Fuji xt4.

video quality is good, 4k 60fps, ibis, af thats everything i need.

but what i affraid is photo quality on fuji in comparassion to canon 5dIV. when processing files from 5dIV i have a lot of room for back highlights, shadows, to punch white, contrast...fullframe give to photo better rendering, texture. I use full frame camera for more than 7 years. I am not sure how aps size senzor from fuji xt4 can handle it. ???

photo quality is only what stop me to make a change of system, to sell all my canon gear and bay compct fuji xt4 and tree lenses :)

Cameras / Lenses / add bmpc 6k or sell 5div and buy r5?
« on: August 11, 2020, 03:56 »
I use 5DIV and have a lot of L lenses.
its ok for photo. But for stock video it is really nice to have 4k 60fps or more. Slow motion give a nice look to footage.

so i thinking about to buy Blackmagic pocket 6k an use it for video, (keeping my 5dIV for photo).
to sell 5dIV, and invest in new R5.
it has 4k 120fps it can make possible a lot of interesting stock footage and its great for photography.
(i know problem with overheating, but for stock maybe its not that big problem - i make a short clips).

or what i think also is to sell all my canon gear and buy compact fuji XT4. its smaller, lens are smaller, have IBIS,  it can do 4k 60fps.

so what you suggest to me? its primary for stock footage and photo.

General Midstock / offset, image source, stoksy experience
« on: August 16, 2019, 01:48 »
i uploading on microstock ss, as, is, for a few years. and i know how microstock works.
now i want to start with some midstock agencies...but it is difficult to find someone experience about this agencies on forums like this is. Except for stoksy, i know few people who upload there, all other agencies are big enigma for me.

i was looking on what photos this agencies offer...and i like style on offset, i think i can do best there, but what i am interesting is how is earnings there, or what of this midstocks agencies are best to contribute?

 I know that for a lot of microstock agencies is not worth to spend time and upload photo there, income is so low, is the same situation in the world of midstock agencies?

For me bigger problem/dilemma is fps than codec. I still do not have definitive answer 25 pr 30fps.  :-\

« on: March 31, 2018, 13:46 »
i cant acess both to my esp account and my profile :(

i cant upload video to istock
i get message
Error: 422: poster_timecode: must be in the format HH:MM:SS:FF.

in next few days i have to make a decision- tree camera are in option: 6dii , 5ds, 5div.
i already have gh5 for video. so is 5div o
image quality worth more

Photography Equipment / canon 5ds or 5d iv for stock photography?
« on: February 03, 2018, 06:02 »
At first i plan to buy 5div so i can do both footage and photo for stock, but in meanwhile i bought panasonic gh5 for footage and now i need camera for photo (i sell my 6d).

so are there benefits of 50mpx for stock? if it is i will go with canon 5ds, if resolution difference between 5ds and mark IV (30 vs 50 mpx) isnt so important for stock today a will definitive go with markIV because it is a little bit better camera.

thanks for advice....  :)

someone sell edited sequence video on ss, pond, adobe...?
I thinking to start to montage multi sequence video i am interested what is yours experience with selling this kind of footage.
and...if i submit footage of for example tree different sequence, can i also upload these tree sequence separately.

thanks :)

General Stock Discussion / Re: Cavan Images
« on: January 14, 2018, 16:47 »
So The Question is why someone contribute to Canvan, who sell on Offstock, and not contribute Offset and sell directly?
Maybe on short term could be useful to have a big name/seller (canvan) to sell your stuff, but
At longterm i think it is mouch better to sell directly.
Am i wrong?

I want to buy light for video. I Have Panasonic GH5. I have yongnuo 300led light...but want one more but with more power. So my first pick is Yongnuo 600led panel. And there are Godox 500 also...
What is your expirience Yongnuo or Godox LEd?

I have a large number of photos fron museums exhibits. Mainly it is ancient archaeological artefact, pottery, statue, figurines from ancient rome, egypt, greece.. It is famous object, world heritage...
So i planing to upload thats photos on shutter and istock.
Are this photo editorial or not?

I thinking about to upgrade my original 3year old 6d.
So there a two solution, sell 6d and:
1) buy just 5dIV and do photo and video with it.
2) buy 6dII and GH5. and use 6dII for photo and gh5 for video.

thanks all on detail answers...

c200 is out of my plans now :(

from my perspective, correct me if i am wrong, what i see like a main benefit od gh5 FOR STOCK is really good video at high FPS (4k/60fps and 1080/180fps)... i notice that slow motion footage is really popular on stock.
On the another side, video from Canon 5dIV looks really good, color an contrast are really nice. And canon Dual pixel AF work really good (i own 70D). And from my postion, all my high quality canon lenses will work without any kind of additions of convertors.

I think that i can survive that old codec on canon 5dIV, but, from my point of view again, lower FPS is main disadvantage of Canon when we speak about STOCK....and main reason why i think about GH5.

Maybe I'm not familiar with the footage stock market, but that is what i think.
And Again, please correct me if i am wrong  ???

hi everyone.
i have canon 6d and some nice lenses: 17-40L, 35L, 50L, 100macro, 200L
i am in photography business for a long period (10 years)....and start video recently. Now when i learn a lot about video recording and processing i thinking about to start to do stock video seriously.
so, my question is about camera. Is it better to upgrade to 5dIV and use all lenses i have, or to buy panasonic gh5. What is better camera for stock footage business.
