  3. Yup. Fuji did not put enough oomph into their early batteries. Glad you are enjoying the X-Pro 1, there is still something magical about its sensor.
  4. So do I. Some of my better sales (high $$) have been to books etc of quite rare subjects that will not sell every year, but that also can't be found elsewhere.
  5. Hi all Apologies for the poor forum etiquette of asking a question and then failing to follow the conversation after the first few posts. Fantastic advice here for if I decide to make the plunge into full frame - but for now I think I will keep what little cash I have in the bank and continue with APSC since the camera I already have far exceeds my skill (and talent). Thanks again for the help.
  6. Hi all I am very happy shooting apsc on my Fuji X-pro 2. It works for me when travelling for work as a print journalist (not much travel happening for a while). But I'm tempted to mess around with full frame. Being locked-down in London has left me with a bit more time on my hands than is good for my sanity (or bank balance). Out of boredom I've messed about on ebay and see that there are cheap 5d bodies going for not much more than £100 (and a prime 50mm 1.8 costs about £50) So here's the question to people who shoot full frame Canon (or I guess Nikon) -- would an old body like that be a worthwhile way of learning full frame, or has tech moved on so much that I would just be frustrated by the sensor and AF and be better off spending quite a bit more for a 5d mkii (I could swing that, but couldn't justify the cost of going to mkiii). Thanks all
  7. I expect a lot of us will at last get around to figuring out how macro and close up photography works. 2) I'm going to play around with light painting with my kids 3) and I plan to work my way through the examples on the strobist blog and at last figure out the intricacies of manual flash - if my family will sit still long enough

  9. This makes sense to me. I would think that there is a strong argument against taking down images unless they are flawed. In my day job I interact with the other side of the picture desk, selecting images that will be used to illustrate print articles. It is useful to have a good selection to fit the crop (horizontal vs vertical, and over 1, 2 or 3 columns) as well as the placement on the page (ie drawing the eye left or right into the page). I find it most useful when my pic desk gives me a lot of options, even if many of them are similar. The caveat to all of this is that my picture-taking skills have a long way to go and I still don't have a great sense of what sells in stock.
  10. Ed's point is a great one and a lesson I still need to absorb. Ed, I just looked at your portfolio and it really is alive with strong and striking images that jump out. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I'm being an idiot in failing to figure out how to past a pic in here, but 1 sale so far for Jan https://www.alamy.com/image-details-popup.asp?Imageid=DE4AA7FF-32E2-4828-8A7C-9FCE6BB77ECF Country: Worldwide Usage: Magazines and books, Use in a magazine or book (print and/or digital), inside use, 5,000 circulation, worldwide for 5 years (excludes advertising).
  13. Hi all Just an update from Alamy CR as follows, so it seems they are on the case: "We’ve heard back from our team about the below use and this particular customer reports uses every 6 months so this will be reported an billed before the end of February."
  14. Thanks all for the useful feedback. I've alerted Alamy and I'll let you know how it pans out.
  15. Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and a healthy and happy new year.
  16. Hi all I've a quick question on rights. Alamy sold the following RM image (HYAFH6) a year ago for "Usage: Presentation or newsletters, Use in a presentation/talk (eg,Powerpoint and Keynote) or in a newsletter." I see it has been used by the UN in a print magazine and online. https://www.un.org/africarenewal/magazine/august-november-2018/trading-while-caring-people-and-planet Is this within their rights and is it worth my time to try to enforce and infringement? I'm a little annoyed that after Alamy's cut I walked away with the price of a London pint. Thanks
  17. Thanks Betty and Ilya This makes thr decison much easier. Now to find a decent used one.
  18. Hi all I'm sure there are many people on the Fuji forums who would love to answer this in great detail. But I was hoping I would get a reasonably practical set of responses here. I'm switching to the Fuji system as I bought a used X100s and love it and have just found a used X-T1. As much as I would love to get a full set of primes for it, I suspect a reasonably versatile zoom would work best for me (I travel a lot in some rough parts of Africa as a print journalist, but like to take photos on the side). The 18-135 has a lot of reach, even if it is a little bit slow on both ends. Has anyone used it and do you have a view on IQ and how it would pass master with QC here? Thanks in advance
  19. This is my first year here. 12 sales for $278. Still trying to learn the ropes but encouraged to keep putting in effort.
