  1. Just wondering if anyone is using these as they seem to be the lowest price FF today. B&H has them for $999 and $1299 with 28k-70 lens.
  2. I agree with Betty normally only one batch and wait for it to clear.
  3. My best year yet but I have been putting more effort in since retiring from another job. I plan to put effort in to local subjects and near by states that I have had success in. North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia should keep me busy. You guys can have Europe no competition from here.
  4. I would have to agree with others DX Nikon D3400 or new D3500. They come with a 18-55 lens and run about $500.00.
  5. For a small camera the a6000 with lens is only $650.00 and keep the Nikons for non discrete shooting. Much less money than the a7III. I have Nikons and the a5000 Sony and use both. The only thing bad about the a5000 is no viewfinder but the a6000 has one. Marvin
  6. Yes the 40mm is for DX only and for FF would need the 60mm. I have the Nikon slide copier that screws directly on the micro lens. I have used the slide copier with a 50mm lens and extension tubes and its Ok for family pics and facebook but not up to stock.
  7. I have thousands of slides that I have made over the years but never made any copies for stock. I am considering using my D3400 DX Nikon with the 40mm Micro Nikon lens and Nikon slide copier. Do you think this combination would work good enough for Alamy. I am also considering a D750 for my next camera and was wondering if full frame FX would be better. Marvin
  8. Only one sale but at $514 my highest single image since being with Alamy.
  9. I wonder if they will be any DX versions as fuji and sony have APS-C versions. Marvin
  10. Same for me Kumar just staying mostly RM with a few RF. Just wait and see if anything changes over time. Marvin
  11. Some time ago I worked for a communications company that maintained 911 centers and we had a anti-static vacuum cleaner to use on their computers. I am sure that these are not readily available but you might use a regular vac with caution. We also had to wear a grounding strap when working on their equipment. Marvin
  12. Thanks Betty I just wanted to keep up with the best way as it seems to have changed. I read the licensing information on Alamy contributor section and that offered some information on the subject. I just returned from the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and had a picture of the beach with many tourists and their umbrellas and coolers and it had many unreleased people and was in the National Seashore. It could only be used for editorial although many business along the seashore would like to show happy tourist on the beach. Not sure if the National Seashore would be considered a public place. The National Park system may have their own rules for photography. Marvin
  13. I know in the past that when you had unreleased people and property it automatically selected RM but with RF editorial only it seems you can go either way. So my question is what is working best for you. I have stayed with RM for unreleased people and property and just wondering if I should be putting more in RF editorial only. I know that RF means they can use the photo from now on. Marvin
