I take about 78,000 pictures every year with my T3i.
I just have to ask, what are you photographing that you are averaging over 200 pictures every day of the year?
Books six days a week. I think I have over 1.5TB of pics of books.
When I go out taking pictures, I take anywhere from 100 to 1000 pics in one day. It all adds up.
Selling the camera was the smartest move. Now, I have a new camera, warranty, and superior pictures. Now, all Canon has to do is release a super upgraded 1DX so I can sell this T3i and buy the new 1DX.
Hold on a sec - you spend your working day, 6 days a week committing plagiarism? You've previously described these books as being just ordinary books - so what are you doing? Even if its to avoid paying for them, you've got library fees to pay, lighting, all the equipment, plus a camera. Which by my reckoning lasted in your own hands just 300 books. Your flashes must be at the end of their life too. So how much is that costing you per book?
And that's before even taking into account your time (a whole year for 300 books) and the end result - 1.5 TB of pixelated, questionably lit, framed and limited DoF, unorganised, large jpegs. I challenge anyone else to have the patience to read one your illegal copies!
You do know you can buy books in pdf and ebook format, sometimes with great discounts? You could buy your years supply of 300 books for less than your current yearly budget, in just a few minutes online. And then you could spend the rest of the year doing a real job, earning real money, and not breaking the law. Although if you want to carry on stealing creative work, why not download the books from a torrent site, reducing your outgoings to zero.
Also, have you considered the file size of a pdf book or an ebook in comparison? Or how simple it is to pick up on any page? Bookmark it? Or how about how all the text is in focus, shadow free? And how you can keep zooming in and it never pixelates? And also read it on a tablet/ebook reader or even a phone?
Sorry - you're obviously enjoying being a photographer. Get your high MP 1 series body when its released. It'll be so much
better than downloading ebooks. And it might even last you 600 books!
