I have to do this all the time and the Epson v700 is the best I've used. It even had an wet plate option for the best quality you can get this side of a drum scan.

Crap, and I was just starting to like instagram.

As a Istock contributor, IMO, Most crap cell phone photos won't print,look, or sell as well as good stock photos.
Depends on the market. If Facebook is trying to undercut microstock for bloggers/online news, then cell phone photos will be perfectly fine. There's still a decent amount of money is selling subscriptions that way; especially when it only costs you storage space to produce those images. Their labor cost is lower than a microstock place that pays photographers.

That said, I think a lot of people will abandon them after their last few changes. Taking away Twitter usability and then this is a good way to piss people off and make them go elsewhere

Istock has editorial licensed photos that are free for use on blogger non-commercial sites already in place. The Small file size sales are pretty decent and already are cheap for bloggers.

Then again, We won't really know until next year.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III - Live view DOF not accurate below f/2.2 ?!
« on: December 17, 2012, 05:17:20 PM »
Its Discussing View-finder focusing screens and its true, the 5D3 isn't accurate faster than F/2.8. On my 5Dc, With the Eg-s Screen, I could clearly see my DOF all the way down to F/1.2, It was fantastic.

I would buy a 50L II but the FF mirrorless is also very tempting. I still wouldn't buy a first gen electronic product though.

Lenses / Re: Long lens recommendation for surveillance.
« on: December 17, 2012, 04:48:19 PM »
Hi, I've got a friend in law enforcement who is asking me for a recommendation for lens/camera combo for surveillance. I naturally thought to extend the question to you all!

What would you recommend as a set-up for surveillance? My friend won't be able to spend a ton of time learning the ins and outs of it and he's not interested in photography as an art. He will need to use it time to time at night and won't be using a flash (obviously).

Your thoughts?

P.S. Budget doesn't necessarily matter. Unless you are concerned about the fact that our taxes will be footing the bill... :)

The zeiss 1700 F/4 is a perfect canidate for surveillance, If you got the arms for it.  ;D

If you have a duff lens, well its not going to get your sensors worth but less. If you have a fantastic lens, Its going to resolve your full sensors megapickel value.

« on: December 17, 2012, 03:21:35 PM »
It's sharp enough for portraits in the center for me. I love the look.

Have you run your 50L through FoCal with your 5D III bodies? I just wonder what other owners are getting from their 50L????????????????

I don't even own FoCal, or any focus calibration software. Infact, I haven't AFMA'ed any of my lenses. They all have been flawless from the factory. ( Fingers crossed .)  :o
