I get a message after a event shoot...

"Also, my understanding is that when we hire a photographer for an event, photo shoot etc. that we own the rights to the photos, as we may want to use them in promotional materials etc. "

I'm here in Canada let me know I thought we don't loose our rights unless we actively give them away. I thought in general its used in good faith and if they would want to go on long runs of print material or the image becomes Iconic for them maybe talk about rights/ a per usage cost.

thanks folks for wading in.

Lenses / 180 3.5 as a PORTRAIT LENS
« on: February 18, 2013, 05:07:19 PM »
I am told it does well but will always give a slight motion blur without a tripod (say on less than bright days)

I have a bunch of MACRO uses as well but the 100 2.8 is far superior due to IS.

Anyone have successes with the 180 as a Portrait LENS, thank you guys

Having the 1DX give me a bit more quality and  i have a few things i want to print and sell so I am just wondering if there is a wide variety of frame stores out there that do good work for a sensible price.

I see Eframe in the UK but I need a more state side/Canadian solution.

Thank you all.

Lenses / CPS - REPAIR
« on: December 18, 2012, 09:59:26 PM »
Just wondering on the COST focus repair in that the Limiter on the 70- 200 MK II now only works at 2m instead of 1.2m as well. don't know how/when it happened nothing is physically wrong with lens  but this limits HEAD shots etc.. Tried moving the switch back and forth and the basics seemly. Maybe its a pin in the lens to body contact area but it also fails on on other cameras so it is the Lens.

Now how much  COST if any of you have had experience with a repair in this realm the lens is 2+ years old warranty i think is gone. and its my go-to lens for most things complementing my other go-to the 24 mkII.

thank you all keep posting your answers please.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 1D X problem
« on: October 01, 2012, 03:49:15 PM »
1 hour old i discover the EXTRA battery LP-4E (mk 3 battery) and or the Charger LC-E4N are defective.

Seems the LP-4E is with out charge OUT of the BOX and and the LC-E4N Flashes all lights GREEN at once and does not seem to charge the NATIVE LP-4EN which had a bit of charge to begin with.

LP-4E there is no FLASHING when it is attached to the charger. and the charge light does not light up.

any help would be good.

1 thing that should be added or CHANGED about the 1 D X or tweak to a current awesome feature.

I would make the Focus confirm flash red or addressable color.


Just wondering if you guys own these cards, I do and wondering if they will hold up under a long burst rate with out a stutter. 

Thank you all!
