Canon / Re: Canon Announces EOS 7D

in my opinion the new 7d and 1Ds will be announced in Sept. 2012 at Photokina,  but the new 5D mk 3 i believe will be available earlier.

i read that on Dreamstime and 123RF you don't need a sign MR for every shooting  session......


 But how about SS, IS Fotolia and Canstockohoto?????  you need a sign MR for every shooting session? or like DT and 123RF only one signed for all the photos regardless when they where taken???

iStock requires a release for each specific photo shoot.  None of the other agencies do.  My own experience includes Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Fotolia, 123RF, BigStock, Veer, CanStock, Crestock, DepositPhotos, PhotoDune, ScanStock, StockFresh and a few others.  Zoonar doesn't require the upload of a release.  They only require that you note that you have one.


Thanks for the information. very useful...

Don't forget that SS have two aces aces up his sleeve that are kept there for ''bad times''...

1. some sort of exclusivity program.
2. implementation of a credit based system.

I have no idea why they don't already have the "2.". They have Bigstockphoto and On Demands, but no "regular" credit download possibility

SS is the top agency, probably they are not so greedy like other agencies...... they must have an ''insurance policy'' for the future in case one of the top 4 threaten their 1st place.

Absolute insanity.  These guys are digging their own grave.  "Search Fatigue" will eventually send buyers elsewhere.

Don't forget that SS have two aces aces up his sleeve that are kept there for ''bad times''...

2. implementation of a credit based system.

those measures will enhance their popularity significantly if their are somehow threatened.

Dreamstime.com / I want to give up as exclusive contributor
« on: September 27, 2011, 03:21 »
After a year on microstock industry and as exclusive contributor on DT i  concluded that i have a large enough portfolio to upload on others agencies.

I read the terms and condition regarding exclusivity on DT but i have some future questions:

- All my pictures that were uploaded more than 6 months ago will go as nonexclusive pictures automatically????

- there is any way to upload the pictures ( less than 6 mounts as exclusive on DT) on other agencies???

-If i upload on other agencies  the pictures that have less than 6 months and 0 sales on DT will be refunded or something????


Thanks in advance....

I think the best way is interest you more about what microstock is... i presume that the majority of the 30k will be rejected due to the today requirements in industry.... If you want to be more easy for you to manage that quantity of files i think exclusivity to one agency is the best way....

A compact interchangeable lens camera from canon will be a very welcome piece of gear; definitely i will buy one and use mu existing canon lens ... From my point of view a very welcomed ''design'' will be the next 7D in two body types... 1 standard body (like today model) and one with integrated grip (like 1D series).... i think Canon can do this under $2000

Not only does Dreamstime not allow you to sell RM, but they don't even allow you to sell products on POD sites with your own images on them.... despite the buyers of your images being allowed to if they purchase the right licence... that's nuts!

Lirch, you may be interested in this post made by Sparticus where he expresses his disappointment after 6 years of being exclusive and only earning $1.27 in July from 3 subs, after having a BME in June.  If these sort of highs and lows bother you, then I wouldn't go exclusive.

I personally wouldn't go exclusive anywhere.  One month your favourite best performing agent could change their policies and become your least favourite worst performing agent.





First of all a little more civilized behavior will be much appreciated..... regarding the absence is a personal matter.... regarding exclusivity i become exclusive less than a year ago.... regarding the earnings.... what can i say;... yes i earned  $1.27 in July from 101 sales.... ;D.

what can i say...nobody is perfect like you.

My link to DT is on my profile page.... I forget to mention... i started to contribute 11 months ago (although i have the account from 2004).... and July was my 5th BME in a row.... I don't try to convince nobody to become exclusive nowhere i just tell you the situation where I am now. Regarding illustrations i upload both pictures and illustrations...

I am exclusive contributor on Dreamstime, and i am pleased with the results so far..... my wife is nonexclusive she upload to all major agencies..... the results are..... i make more money than her... course my portfolio in twice as big. Maybe  when my portfolio will exceed 3000 files i will consider to contribute to all major agencies....

Now, frequently i earn $4-5 from an simple XL RF file download due to the huge 60% revenue. Almost all my pictures appear in the first 3 pages in  search algorithm.... becoming an exclusive on any agency is a personal choice of each contributor who is in this business. ::)
