  1. I am looking to talk to anyone who has used a T2i for Stock Photography (any platform, SS, etc.) and/or is still using one right now (any platform, SS, etc.). I have many questions about using this older platform for stock. Feel free to include links to any resources or drop knowledge in the reply. I may upgrade in the future, but that will be a long time now due to the current economic situation. Also, if you don't own this system, is there a way to search the Shutterstock database to find users with that specific camera body? Thanks, Jason
  2. Would anyone guide as to which camera would be the best to have almost all the features required by the pictures or images being posted on the Shutterstock. A sincere guidance as to picking up the right camera would be highly appreciated, please. Thanking you,
  3. Hello everyone! Two weeks ago I bought a Sony a5100 with 16-50 lenses (Model SELP1650), but when I started filming I noticed shadows around the image. I researched forums about the problem, and saw that it could be an effect called 'vignette'. I shoot with the setting 1/80 F5.6 and ISO around 400 to 600 (with 3 lamps of 60w in a room of 3 meters by 3 meters) and I was recommended to set the camera to 1/60 F11 and a higher ISO (around 2000) I put this setting, but with the ISO increased, the image is very saturated. Is there any other solution to remove these shadows? The camera is very good, and the focus is fast, but this problem with "shadows" (or "vignettes") is putting an end to my filming. The image below is part of a shot on a white wall Configurations: 1/80 F5.6 and ISO around 400 to 600 (with 3 60w lamps in a 3 meter by 3 meter room)

  7. Hi all, Merry Chrismas as the day approaches. I have been using Sony hvr z5u for all my wildlife and nature footages, which i do exclusively. I see the camera has been overtaken by events and i now need a 4k camera that is light, easy to carry around, but able to shoot quality footages for stock. i have done some reserches and things seem to point to mirrorless cameras. please help in determining which is the best, under 1300usd, which i have saved for such eventuality. is the sony alfa 6300 good enough? is anyone here using it? the question of overheating, that i read in a forum, does it still exist? what do you think of the long term use? as in... will things change so soon to render the morrorless..4k systems obsolete or can they last another 10 years like HD? this constant changes of gear can be costly if not well thought. any input please?
  8. Hi all guys, I am new into the SS contributors, I am learning. I had uploaded some camera and it's lenses images and rejected with "Image potentially infringes on another person's intellectual property rights (e.g., image contains artwork, writing, sheet music, or objects protected by copyright). I removed the logo of canon. But I can now understand all text also have copyrights of some fonts' of course. I want to know if I submit these types of images in editorial,it will be accepted or not?? or is it right to try some image rejected in commercial ,after that try to editorial next?? Thanks in advance everyone.
  9. Shooting RAW vs JPEG is a question that every photographer faces at some point. There are many articles out there that cover the topic from the basics of size and quality, to all of the advanced technical details regarding color bits per channel, compression, firmware DCT processing, etc. For me i go with RAW, what about you ?
  10. Hello there, My name is Antonio and I am from Romania. I opened this topic because I need some help for my work art. Well, I am here from 1 of September and i never sold any photo.

  12. Hi everyone. My name is Max. I'm new photographer. Today I use my canon 70d for stock photo but i want to upgrate to full frame camera. Yeaterday I seen a secound hand camera It's Canon 5D classic 12mp.It's very cheap. How Do you think about it. It's ok form stock photo? And Do you think that high quality cameras affect the sales of images? Thank you.
  13. I only had my Canon xsi for a week before I had to return it because it was malfunctioning. It has been in transit for a week, should arrive back to seller tomorrow. Hubby suggested instead of letting them fix it and send it back, just get a refund and throw a little more money at a better one. Okkkkkaaaayyyy! So, I picked out a t5 with only 1880 shutter count. I am waiting very impatiently for it to ship (until the old one arrives and I can just pay the price difference). I have lenses just sitting there looking sad and bodiless. Hopefully, it will be here for the weekend, but I am guessing Monday. Ugh. That is all.
  14. Has anyone ever use the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera before? Because I am thinking of getting one, when I looked at the quality of it seem's like a really good camera for video so I want to see your guy's thoughts on it. Here is the video link to it.
  15. I bought PENTAX 5-Ⅱ for field work of may subject Primates societely.
  16. Hello All, I am here on SS for last 10 months. initially 2 months I was active on SS later I stopped uploading pics on it. After 5 months I got 2 downloads then I again started uploading images on SS. Now I am having total 9 downloads which is very low count. I am just using point and shoot camera, is this the reason for low sales. is DSLR is mandatory to sell images or we can sell images with point & shoot camera and from mobile phone. I am not having confidence as of now to buy DSLR, waiting for the first payout. Please look at my portfolio and give your suggestions on the same. Regards, Sheetal
  17. Hi, I had the unfortunate incident in the weekend when my D3300 was dropped and no longer works. As unhappy as I was at the time I realized how much I enjoyed shooting with it. Instead of looking to buy the same camera I am seeing this as an opportunity to upgrade.! I had only owned my cameras for a few months so still exploring. I had bought a couple of lenses (35mm Nikon prime, Tamron 70-300mm) so not spent any mass amount on them but my question is this, as I have been looking into upgraded version, either D5500 or D7100/D7200 second hand I am trying to keep the price under £1000 and as I have not spent too much on lenses might also consider moving to Canon or Mirrorless and sell the lenses I have on ebay . At the moment I don't have a particular subject for what I shoot. I am not into Weddings or Portraits, nor did I find myself climbing high mountains to get that great scenic shot (not yet anyway). However, Scenery/Landscapes do attract to me so will probably continue with that. Street photography I would feel awkward taking photos of random people and can be quite frowned upon in the UK. I would like to take the camera with me on city break holidays as I have a few trips lined up for later this year. I keep finding myself watching reviews on the Mirrorless cameras but I think the low battery life would be quite frustrating. Also, the size of holding a bulkier DSLR feels more like you have a decent piece of kit in your hands. Tough choice really so wondered if anyone has any advice ? Is Mirrorless worth the switch for a Amateur photographer ?
  18. I plan to buy new camera for only video. I would like to know i should keep Full HD or go for 4K camera. And what about market
  19. I have got a canon t6 ....With the kit lens .......Is it enough to get great stock photos and start selling?
  20. Today I have been offered a Canon EOS 5D mark 2 for £500.00. I was looking to upgrade towards the end of the year to an EOS 6D. I am currently using the Canon EOS 50D which has seen better days. My question is would you buy the 5D now or wait a bit longer and go for the 6D. Just to add that the 5D is in mint condition with about 6,000 shots taken with it. Thank you in advance for your advice.
  21. Is anyone using the Nikon D500 for 4k video? I have a few hours till the end of the day to decide to buy it with a convenient black Friday price. I want the D500 for 4k videos and yes, for it's high speed and all the great features. There are two thing I don't like at it: - the lack of internal flash, not the popup but the built-in remote flash commander. Btw. I never use flash but its comforting to know it is there. - the limited movement of the articulated screen which looks more like a nuisance comparing it to the flip out screen on my D5200 which also protects the screen when not in use. Would you recommend this toy for shooting 4k?
  22. Want to improve technique. Welcome every comment
  23. If anyone wants to share their experience with 4K cameras and their preferences, I'd be interested to hear about it, as I am sure probably some others would be as well. What do you use to shoot 4K footage, and what do you like and not like about the camera? I have been looking at getting a JVC GY-HM170U. Does anyone here use it? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1194106-REG/jvc_gy_hm170ua_4kcam_compact_professional.html
  24. Hi I'm not updated with the very last camera releases, but always for stock photography bring all the DSLR gear, Canon L USM heavy lenses and actually have a 40mm pancake for some kind of travels, specially bicycle long trips that I use to do at least once or twice a year. Is a pretty much heavier than what I would like to take with me, specially when bicycle long travels, actually bringing on the bike the Canon 5d-III with the pancake, plus charger, batteries... Is not a bulky gear but when biking for 2 weeks or more each pound of weight is becomes a bad story. I actually own a canon 550 Apsc but when I used to shoot some stock images but editors were rejecting my images due "oversample", I did never increased the size, just the camera image size but somehow I understood they were prefering my heavy stuff and since then I keep fullframe since today. I'm planning in some months a new trip in bicycle, a long one actually and love to take travel images during the trip, we travel slower than going by car and almost notice some details mostly the same as if you were walking. For this time I would love to find a really lightweight camera, I don't care if mirrorless, but I would love to be Fullframe. If not full frame, at least with a sensor size that will not happen again the rejections due "oversampling" with means..."designers of this camera are putting more megapixels than what they should" probably for marketing reasons on the megapixels race. I know how important sensor size is in all this story and final image should have the quality that editors spect for a pro work. As I told you at the very beginning I'm not updated with the last camera releases because are many. I'd love to have 4k video but... would love to not increase my $1000 budget if possible. Probably would not get a FF camera for this budget but which ones would be the pro-traveler cameras that you would recommend me, having in mind that would need to have image quality improvements compared to my Canon 550. If lighter... better.... but at the end need to worth the invested money... what it did never happen with the Canon 550d
