  1. I am curious how this product (first: photography, second: smartphone) will influence the "professional" photography/videography market. Xperia PRO-I Announcement – October 2021 I still belong to the old school. andre
  2. Today, I signed up for Alamy and uploaded the first 3 images from the URL below, but I was rejected by "Unsuitable Camera". https://www.alamy.com/myupload/Index.aspx The minimum image sensor size in "Alamy ’s rough guide to digital cameras" is said to be recommended by four thirds sensors, The sensor size of my camera (sigma dp1 merrill) is APS-C (23.5 × 15.7mm). By the way, the EXIF information of the file excluding the shooting information is as follows. Manufacturer: SIGMA Camera: SIGMA DP1 Merrill EXIF version: 0230 Color space information: sRGB Image width: 4704 Image height: 3136 By the way, the following cameras were also rejected by "Unsuitable Camera". Canon PowerShot G7 X SIGMA DP3 Merrill What is the camera performance that can be used in the first three image tests after signing up?
  3. I have a three star QC rating with my DSLR. I just bought a Canon EOS 6Mii. The images are boarder line to my eye. Can I send three in to see if they pass or is that going to ruin my QC rating?
  4. Hi everyone, I would like to get advice from a professional photographer, if possible, about what is the best DSLR camera to use in your experience, which one should I buy for selling images through Alamy? I plan to take snapshots of still imagery (I believe that is what is called), in other words, only for still shots. I want to get different views on how you guys utilize various cameras, so that then I can weigh in the best possible answer. Thank you :)
  5. Hello everyone. I just recently got started on Alamy and was wondering: do you think my Pentax Q7 has what it takes to meet Alalmy's quality criteria? I have taken plenty of pictures which I believe were great until I tried submitting them and having them rejected with a message that said "Sorry, but this camera doesn't produce images of high enough quality for our requirements". I have seen an amazing photographer whose work I like a lot; his name is Mark Phillips and has the same vibe that I wish I could express with my pictures. Anyways, I thought maybe it was a matter of resolution, which my camera has set in 4000x2248 and 300dpi, but then I checked that his photos are almost all in 3600x2400 and 300dpi so relatively similar. I then thought maybe some of my pictures had blur or were overexposed but I have submitted a photo with a clear sky that is not overexposed and saw that some of his photos emphasize on the blur so I don't know what I need to be looking for. Should I put on more effort on the postediting or is it perhaps the fact that my camera has a 1/1.7" sensor? My Q7 is the only camera I have available so if it is indeed my camera's fault I have no idea what I would do. Hope you can help me, any feedback is endlessly welcomed. Thank you for your attention.
  6. Hello! I seen Sony RX100 M6 at london drugs is it new model of Sony or it was long ago when it came up? I am Using Sony RX100 M3 wanted to upgrade any body using Sony Rx100 M6? is it worth it? any advice for me? i still doesn't have any income from Alamy im trying to put more effort
  7. First off, sorry if I'm doing this all wrong but I just signed up. I did my due diligence though, I think, and I can't find the info I'm looking for. I'm a stock photog since 2009 with a well known agency and have several hundred Ricoh GR files in my portfolio that sell well (for info, my other camera is a Nikon D800E). Submitting my three initial files here, just now, imagine my surprise when two Ricoh GR files are rejected outright because the 'camera is not good enough'! I might at his point quote Alamy Contributor Relations Manager, James A, (link here https://www.alamy.com/blog/meet-alamy-content-team-camera-bags ) who says: "My most prized possession though is that little camera at the bottom. The Ricoh GR. A fixed 28mm lens on what looks like a cheap and crappy little point and shoot (but it’s not cheap or crappy). You can keep it in your pocket and take it out anywhere and people just think you’re a tourist – incredibly handy for street photography or if you don’t like to draw attention to yourself. The image quality is mind blowing and I’d trade all the other gear I own to keep it! It’s got a bit of a cult following too, for good reason." So my question is: is this camera really black-listed (or not white-listed)? I would be hugely disappointed if this were the case.
  8. I learned the hard way that my 2 cameras I used do not meet Alamy standards. I hope to buy a Canon EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera . Does anyone have experience with this Camera and how acceptable will be from Alamy? Thank you Angelos
  9. I shoot mostly for stock with a Nikon. I bought a Lumix DMC-ZS60 (18 mps with Leica zoom) 'travel camera' to use when I am on vacation and also for casual use as I run errands about town when I don't want to lug the Nikon. I uploaded a few photos from a recent foreign vacation and had few or no issues with Alamy. I recently uploaded a batch of nine local shots (eight shot with the Nikon and one with the Lumix) and the entire lot was rejected due to the the quality of one shot from the Lumix. I am aware of Alamy's policy of rejecting one/rejecting all (which seems unfair). The Lumix is said to not be a good low-light camera and I agree with that. When this batch was rejected Alamy did cite noise as one reason for rejection but they also cited the rejection as being taken with a "digital camera not suitable for Alamy". As a result they revoked my upload privileges for 10 days. Has anyone experienced this same rejection reason with a Lumix and does Alamy in fact have a published list of cameras they automatically accept content from?
  10. Hi I am looking for a cheap smallest possible camera which Alamy will accept, with a basic optical zoom. Idea is to carry it in a pocket all the time. Sony RX100 is too expensive, and I am fine with cameras from pre 2010 if they produce good daylight images. Looking at cameras such as Olympus pen light 5 with 14-42 pancake lens, but does not need to be interchangeable lens. Any ideas?
  11. So here it is https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-hx99/specifications#features Sony's new compact camera with a tiny sensor, 8.82mm across, and able to do the 'impossible' as per the specifications. It even has RAW output. I wonder if Adobe will bother. I would love such a camera for a 'walk about' if a longer reach is required than my RX100M3 can achieve. I guess Alamy's immediate response will by Njet, Nein, not in our backyard. Will be interesting to see full size images when they become available. At some point Alamy will probably have to retreat to 'if they pass our quality control' pose. I never imagined, when I started with Alamy, that the quality available with say an RX100 and one inch sensor would ever happen.
  12. Question: What is YOUR favorite lens, and why should everyone else agree with you?
  13. Hey everyone, I've just spent (what for me is) a small fortune on a new camera and lenses. I thought it would be prudent to insure them because I've, ahem, kind of thrown a camera across a football pitch in the past! And this is where the fun begins. I'm mostly living in Austria these days and insurance companies here just generally don't want to know. They're not really into speciality insurance - small market and all that. I did get one quote for €470 per year for an insured value of €6,000. Includes theft, accidental damage and replacement with the new cost, not used. It seems somewhat extortionate to me, but then I've never bought camera insurance before. I don't think I can use UK insurance companies because I'm not resident there. So.... Is this expensive? Is anyone in the same boat. How many people insure and how many risk it? Cheers, Steve
  14. Hi, I'm using a Canon 1000D with it's original lens. Can anyone tell me if this is camera has been known to give soft images? Thanks.
  15. Hello everyone, I am shopping for a new camera and want to make sure it is an approved camera. Also, I am hoping to hear from you which cameras are your favorite. Thanks.
