  1. Bit of a drink theme going on here ... Needed to snatch this pic of my pint of guinness, coz about three minutes later it didn't look like this whatsoever.
  2. Canon g9x?

    Hi Betty, the old G9 (circa 2007 or so) had a much smaller sensor and entirely different lens structure to the current G9X. Like you, I had one, and there are a few images on here that passed QC without any issue, however, mine was prone to CA, and needed some care. The new G9X is totally different, and has a larger 1" sensor - same size as the Sony RX100 series. Can't comment on the lens, though my G5X is similar, and as pocket cameras go, it's really excellent. Only bought it in the summer, and it's almost paid for itself already...

    Nice shots Larry, hope you've a tube of bite ointment in your kit bag...
  4. Canon g9x?

    1" sensor on the new G9X is the same size as on all the Sony RX100 range - so should pass no problem. I use a G5X as a pocket camera, same sensor, passes QC without any issues. No viewfinder on the G9X, so you'll have to use the screen.

  8. Hi Sally, it is regrettable, but does occasionally happen - papers don't need to download an image, Alamy send them directly to the picture desks. It's pretty nigh impossible for anyone to track every use in every edition, online and print, of every newspaper, so it relies heavily on the honesty system. As Keith says, the Sun are usually very good - and if anyone would know, then it would be him, he sells a lot of live news stuff. If you do find one, take a screen grab, and copy the url. With this info, CR will chase it for you, and you'll get paid. If you have the time, do a google reverse search on your live news shots about a month after you uploaded them, it sometimes brings in a little bonus ...

  12. A good laugh indeed! Now, where's my parrot outfit ....
  13. No Sales as yet

    General rule of thumb is one sale per month per 1000 images, and average sales value here is around $40.00 I suspect, as others have already said, that you're sales are suffering due to them being available elsewhere at a tiny fraction of that fee.

  15. Keyword agency

    Nothing "funny" in what was said. Lots of full time, day in, day out professional photographers on these forums, myself included, all equally busy. You've had to make time to correct a massive batch of duff keywording, so use the time better, the answers above really ARE the most constructive ones. No agency can possibly understand your needs as well as you can, they are all going to make massive errors like the one you started with.
