I agree with you. I have always thought that my pictures do better in iS.

I actually need to add a 5inch monitor.

I doubt you can find a light setup with a built-in 5-inch monitor, if that's what you're asking?

If you're looking for light, 4k60p, you've already found the camera - the GH5. I film with the viewfinder all the time and it's much easier to see details. I would never add a big clunky monitor on top, but then again, my eyesight is still very good (and will hopefully stay that way).

Are you asking if there is a camera with a BIG 5" display that shoots 4k60p that is also small and lightweight? I think the answer is no. :) I could of course be wrong.
I perfectly agree with the above.
The GH5 is the best for what you want to achieve, especially if you are (like me) interested in 4k at 60fps.
Also it has an excellent dual stabilisation system (both in camera and on lenses). In certain situations you will not need a cage or a gimbal

Why is anyone still uploading there?

These rates are an insult

I'm not uploading, but I have left what was there. Sometimes I doubt that I should be doing that, but these are not my finest and what I get is just "free money".

It works different for each person. My RPD this month was 0.76. Higher tan SS and AS.


I don't spend RPD I spend money.  ;)

Besides = 0.26 average for the last period on IS is terrible. No I don't have any video there, and my images are old. If there was a way to disable individual images, I'd remove a few that sell much better on SS and AS. just in case?  ;D

But since you mentioned it, I'll play along. Sept to Oct, so it's the same period, RPD AS .90 & SS was $1.11 I guess you must have something that IS buyers like? While I uploaded what SS and AS buyers wanted for more?

I was ignoring last month like many others because the refunds and resale at the proper rate was skewing the results.

One DL on DT last month it was $2.20 so there's the best RPD? LOL DT has my SS and AS rejections, always uploaded as exclusive. Good news, some actually sell. Fun to watch.

But the point is, IS is the worst and remains the worst at 15% and down.

iStockPhoto.com / Model release... only with an app?
« Last post by christiano on Today at 08:29 »
Hello, I do not often upload pictures needing a model release, however, I just uploaded a few with the standard form in pdf. The form has been accepted everywhere, except with IS who asks for an electronic version from an app called "easy release"... which costs $ 12.99 with android ... can I use another free one? Is this really the only app that IS accepts?

IS message :"Release: We only accept digitally signed releases created with applications approved on this article: https://contributors.gettyimages.com/article.aspx?article_id=3069"

thanks

Isn't giving for charity also a way to pay less taxes?  ::)

Crushpixel (46 sales with 2000 images since they opened in Feb 2019)

I wonder if there is agencies not presented in the list on the right by meeting this requirement: The agency to report at least one sale per month per 1000 images on sale.

I'm aware that this is depend of the images, however it will be useful to share if there is some less known until now agency.

By the way on the right have a lot which do not meet this requirement, some of them even do not exist anymore (Macrografiks, PhotoSpin.. )

Pauws99. I just voiced my opinion. Please respect it and I will respect yours.

Alamy, respect your contributors! Be charitable to us!
I signed up to contribute to a photo agency , not do charity. Charities should be kept completely separate.
I'm not sure that Alamy's profit margin is any different to the rest of the industry what difference would it make if they spent the profit on coke and lapdancers? When you signed up to them their business model was quite open.

I'm with you ravens. Blowing on about your charity generosity a few months after cutting commissions by 20% is not a good look.

Nowhere was your opinion disrespected.
Even with indie files, you get 40% via Alamy, which is more than you get from other agencies. With distributor sales you get 30%, which is about what you get from other agencies, (except iS if indie).
If they weren't funding their charities they wouldn't exist at all.
So it's up to you, contribute to them, or don't.

You expressed your opinion about their modus operandi, Paws expressed an opinion about your opinion, that's how a forum works.
