Flash68 Posted February 8, 2020 Share Posted February 8, 2020 I know this has been discussed many times, but does anyone know if cameras that were once suitable for Alamy are now being rejected and what their criteria for automatic rejection as an 'Unsuitable' camera is? When it first came out, I bought a Lumix GF1 (micro 4/3) - I submitted hundreds of photos to Alamy taken on that camera. I've upgraded several times since then but recently passed it on to my daughter who has taken some decent photos that I suggested she put on Alamy. She excited opened an account and uploaded her samples only for them to be rejected immediately as taken on an 'unsuitable camera'. I know the guidelines are vague but generally to stop mobile phones and low-end compacts. Their guidelines actually say 'Forget megapixel count' (as a suitability criteria) so even though 12MP is low by today's standards, it appears that is not an issue and obviously the M43 sensor is acceptable. Any ideas why a camera that was once acceptable is not any more? As an aside, assuming that I'm not going to get around this, what's the oldest Lumix GF/GX that anyone is still submitting from (I used a GX7 until last year) - it seems like I need to upgrade my daughter's camera before she becomes disheartened.
