I’ve noticed that my keeper rate is abysmal, as in 10% or less, abysmal. That’s a bit discouraging, which points to a problem in how I’m taking photos. Why do I end up with so few good shots? (And it is a problem when you spend hours taking photos, and in post-processing, to end up with 19 out of 100 shots.)So why? A few reasons came to mind. Reasons 1.

By changing numbers to the lower side (for ex. from 60fps to 23,976fps), you’ll get wonderfully slowed video.If you... continue reading
Hi,I guess all of you encountered this subject on the "day dreaming" sectionin the message board. Usually what you'll see over there are some happy contributors and some disappointed.

The real problem was the average revenue. As all but 2 sales were subs my RPD was 0.58$. You must... continue reading
