  • My first question is do you have time to take on this job? We don't really know enough to give a good estimate, but my guess is not far off from Gramm's - I got about 180 to 200 hours, roughly ...
  • Yep, on all the mirrorless I am familiar with, mostly Panasonic and Sony. The camera can be set up to show a review image in the finder. I'd be afraid to generalize, although I guess in most cases ...
  • You will likely get a better and more positive response on the pro forum Contrary to what the others say, many photographers and business people are happy to share at least some part of their ...
  • Yep. In fact, for most anything except action or fast work I let the review flash in the EVF. Took me a while to get used to it, but it gives a quick confirmation of what I'm doing. I'll vary the ...
  • First off, very few photographers anymore work for a "major outfit.' Those jobs are pretty near extinct, given over to part timers and freelancers or folded into a graphic artist job description. ...
  • I think one can judge from the comments in this thread that SOME gearheads are more worried about sharpness than content. Not all, but some. Apparently the comment was not directed at you. The ...
  • Replied in Thanks -- NT
  • I would not question your numbers. I was looking for a minimum number making conservative assumptions/guesses about upgrades - including that a typical user would not buy every upgrade. The term ...
  • Sort of, yes. No one is going to rise to the top in photography based solely on their equipment. You could just as easily come at it from the other side and link something like a flckr gallery from ...
  • I ran across this Photoshelter guide tonight and thought about this thread. I think the OP can find some valuable information here, including some rough ideas on realistic rates for regional use. ...
  • I consider Photoshop almost a necessity for the type of photography I do, but not everyone needs all the features. Many find Lightroom, Elements or simpler editors can do everything they need. Afte ...
  • In my experience most magazines pay a flat rate per assignment or a day rate. They would expect editing to be included in the photo fee - or some magazines prefer to do their own editing. I don't ...
  • Based on what I remember from the old days backed up with a little online research: Many older Ricohs (maybe all) used Pentax mounts, though with some variations in the later years. The early ...
  • Over the years I've learned that less is more. I get more and better photos when I concentrate on a defined idea and purpose. When I first started out I tried to carry everything - even maybe two ...
  • A few years ago I worked for a company doing cheerleader competitions. They stacked all the big gear on a freight pallet, shrink wrapped it and shipped to the venue via FedEx. That included ...
  • I wanted mirrorless viewing, with a seamless switch between EVF and LCD. I was already using Olympus 4/3 DLSRs, so I knew what I was getting into on the sensor size. For my purposes the difference ...
  • Far as I can tell, the monkey was NOT acting under direction of the camera owner. If the owner was giving any direction at all it was probably along the lines of "Hey! Give that back." As I ...
  • Replied in Don't lie?
    "Don't lie ..." Surely you've heard that phrase. It's a very common way to pose a question, especially in an area where people are prone to exaggerate or prevaricate: "Don't lie now, how big was ...
  • Unless you go for a body with stabilization I'd go for a Panasonic lens with OIS. I like the 45-150 - it's tiny, light and has very high image quality. The 14-140 is nice if you want a one-lens ...
  • That may be the case in UK, but in the US since 1976 it is the person who makes the photo, except in the case of 'work for hire', which is also discussed here: http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ01.pdf
