  • I played with my 5D2 and 3 video...depends what you want to do with it. You CAN get movie quality footage - gorgeious stuff with th eright lens- but the focus sucks. It's fine if nothing moves - ...
  • and 10 years ago and back you'd see 90% with P&S cameras. so what is your point?
  • Created discussions The mic I finally got is great
    thanks to all that suggested mics. I got a rode m3 cardiod and have a boom for lights (never worked too well for that, at least with a heavy monolight on it) that is perfect for putting a mic overhead.
  • I just got my bill for 2015 - $712 for $35k of gear (listed by serial number), $1m/2m liability, my studio building is covered, teh props/lights/Bgs, samples, furniture in it, samples/displays on ...
  • you can buy additional insurance from PPA - it's not cheap based on the quotes I've gotten. You own a business so consider BUSINESS INSURANCE. It's got a lot more coverage than most 'photographer' ...
  • True..BUT it's up to lawyers and a court on whether or not your LLC protects those assetts. If youre employee screwed up they probably will. YOU screwed up? Maybe not as you may be personally sued ...
  • I sold motorcycles for a number of years - people would buy whatever was 'the fastest this year' - even though they'd never be able to drive it that fast. So why buy it? EGO - bragging rights, the ...
  • If your gear can't capture your vision, then you need better/different gear. if you have visa you can have whatever gear you want. YOUR visa, not mine. So why would I care what you buy? If this is ...
  • i've got that plug in and for still images it's a dream. I can do a still frame capture in LR and get the frames adjust adn then sync that to the video and export and it's all screwed up. I've ...
  • I'm shooting a project where multiple different cameras are used and I need to match up teh color/wb on them in post. I have LR but it won't do it. Not sure why, but syncronizing shots (tried many ...
  • I odn't think all L's are sealed..and HOW sealed may be a question that concerns some. The 1D bodies are sealed to the degree you could shoot under water with them (not that it's recommended.) the ...
  • if he needs AF to capture action get a video camera, not a dslr. Most dslr's are still cameras first with video added- AF isn't their strong point with video. For stills you want a 1D body of some ...
  • A still head shot still requires the subject to 'act'. You the photographer are the director so it is up to you to make that happen with your direction to them. I don't know 'the ultimate answer' ...
  • the 17-55 is a great lens but is NOT an L lens. I shot a baseball league on a windy day - the infield clay/dirt mix blew at me and ended in IN the 17-55 lens... a sealed lens is worth it. the fix ...
  • The consumer bodies are plastic, the pro bodies metal (magnesium I think). L lenses are metal and sealed against dust/moisture where consumer lenses are not. canon and most companies offer 3 grades ...
  • you can buy foamcore with adhesive on it, peel and stick your print. 3M sells an adhesive on a roll that you can use like wax paper - roll it onto the print or foam core, rub to adhere, then peel ...
  • canon's tele L lenses are white. Go watch ANY pro sport and you'll see 80% or more of the photogs with white lenses. Now watch them get run over in football, soccer, hit with bats and balls in ...
  • they're expensive...to get $35k in gear coverage is more than i pay for that much PLUS all my general business and liability coverage with Erie.
  • exactly. My CPA suggests my wire incorporate in some fashion to save on FICA. 2014 we ended up about even on taxes (thanks to the ACA PTC). So incorporating would have been a cost with little to no ...
  • tax / cpa is pretty cut and dried. Law..that's ALL opinion. Ask 3 lawyers the same question and you're likely to get 3 different answers. A lawyer will talk S corp or LLC from a liability ...
