  1. Oh my... I've been contemplating leaving for some time now... This might just be the last drop to tip over the edge... Not only that this will probably lead to less earnings, but it was communicated in such a lousy way. I am highly disappointed.
  2. That camera is a beast in a deceptively small body!
  3. Not only that it's accepted, but clips I uploaded even paid off the cost of the camera! However, it's not that much about the camera, but about the content you provide
  4. I'm not an expert in macro, but these photos look very nice to me. It's great that you've found an alternative!
  5. If you aren't planning to use a macro lens for other purposes (ie portraits, etc...) then we can agree that you will be satisfied with a manual-focusing lens. If that is the case, you might consider buying some kind of Canon EF to Sony E adapter (even the cheap ones will do the trick because you won't be using auto-focus much) and then you can either look for used Canon EF 100mm f2.8 Macro, or Samyang's (Rokinon in the US) 100mm f2.8 manual focusing lens. I am using the Canon's one and I love it; never used Samyang's but all reviews I saw so far claim it is very good lens. On the other hand, 100mm might be too long for an aps-c (depending on the personal preference), in which case somebody else should try to help you, somebody who has experience with 50-60-ish macro lenses designed for aps-c.
  6. I am not sure of the current prices (especially as they wildly vary depending on the region and discounts) but maybe you should also consider the a6500. I'm not shooting wildlife but I imagine the in-body-stabilization would be of a great benefit to the wildlife shooter (especially in video!). Also, I believe that a6500 handles overheating better. It is not a full-frame low-light beast of a camera, but it handles low-light situations pretty well imho.
  7. There definitely is a bug. When I select then deselect the "Shutterstock Select" filter, my clips show up. But anyhow, this is bad. Enough with destructive experiments for the sake of selected few!
  8. I don't know if it's just me or is it a new site-wide bug, but even the popular clips on the whole website are skewed... They all feature clips from just one portfolio. I mean, they are great clips, but this doesn't look like it's the way it should be.
  9. This is ridiculous! Nobody in their right mind would do such amount of work when 1) earning potentials are unpredictable and 2) PNG codec works just fine on it's own (or at least it used to work before)
  10. I've uploaded transparent PNG videos in the past, but it was many months ago; maybe something changed, intentionally or unintentionally (ie. bug )
