Search results for "comp"

Fuji X10 - good compact for stock?

I must confess that I'm on an endless quest - in search of a compact camera that has a few key requirements:1. Portable.I want a zoom for unexpected situations, and it must fit in a pocket or purse when needed.I find cameras like the Canon S95 just a bit too small, without enough control or room to hold them.A Canon G12 is more my size...2. Quality.I want it to have enough quality.I understand that a small pocket camera will usually be inferior to a dSLR.Occasionally it will be the... continue reading

So glad that Canon doesn't run Dreamstime

Canon has been running an annual themed photography competition in Australia and New Zealand for the last couple of years called Photo5.It's good fun, and gives you the challenge to stretch your photography in a direction you wouldn't normally go.I've entered that comp for the last 2 years.I've imagined that my photos are good enough to run away with a 5D MkII and a photography trip, but alas, nothing has come of it.My imagination is better than my photography!But I'm glad that Dreamstime... continue reading

Tip - Leave space for copy

No earthshattering new ideas here but for novices to Dreamstime I think its worth mentioning that stock image buyers want to have room for their copy.Nothing says "amateur" or snapshot more than a composition with the subject in the direct center of the frame.Just because your camera's default focusing target appears in the center of the screen doesn't mean that is where the subject needs to end up.Push the button down half way to focus and then move the camera to get your subject in... continue reading

The unit has the same size that a IBM Microdrive or CompactFlash II model.Why this unit is so convenient ? Firstly, the CF memory is well know (from the beginning) as capacity limited, as speed transfer limited and mainly for me as an expensive memory... continue reading

Shooting Tethered On The Cheap

I've recently started using tethering software for almost all stock photos I shoot.This manner of shooting allows for instant feedback on a large calibrated monitor, rather than the LCD on your DSLR.I have a Macbook Pro and Nikon DSLR's so with other brands YMMV.The two I have tested are StudioTether and Sofortbild.The latter is a much more capable program, enabling time delay, interval shooting and Live View capability.The camera is hooked into the computer via a standard USB cable, which... continue reading

DSLR = quality photosPoint & Shoot = lower quality photosDSLR = no photos (couldn't bring the camera)Compact Point & Shoot = some photos (camera in pocket)Canon S95 = compromise with benefits-------------------------------------I recently added a Canon s95 to my kit - too many times that I wanted to take photos, but didn't have the DSLR with me.The S95 is up there in terms of image quality and manual control - along with Panasonic's Lumix LX5 and the Canon G12.It's 10MP... continue reading
