"Yet another reason i hate my D70"


MAROOCHYDORE, AU
          

As you may or may not know I am opposed to almost all new ideas I was fine believing the world was flat and carried on the back of a huge turtle.

Then along came "Digital Photography" Boo Hiss I railed and raged against it for 5 years untill the D70 was released, at last a camera that came close to doing what a real camera should do that I could afford without selling any more of my children for medical experiments.

I have posted my hate if this demon spawn camera here before but last night the first submission to my stock library was approved they need a minimum 50meg file size interpolated up from a 17 meg raw file. The D70 passed the test with flying colours so now I have over 2,000 images to be logged in titled and key-worde

In my old film days it would take me at least a few months of shooting and scanning to get this many images ready for submission the D70 has increased my efficiency so much I am doing far more work than before.

Why was I never warned of these consequences!!!!!! Damm you D70, damm you to hell!!!!


cheers doug


PS if this keeps up I will be buying another D70 soon for my wife to shoot with.
Where will it all end!

Nice one!

But what's the point of making a 50Mb file from a 17Mb one? It can't contain any more information... it's just bloat, surely?

And the reason is!!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> They ask us to!

I think it is to make it quicker and easier for those who purchase images.

But I really don't know. As long as the money comes I really don't care too much eithe

I let greater minds than mine ponder these things.

Shooting in NEF Raw gives you a compressed 5 to 6 meg file that file then opens in Photoshop as a 17.3 meg Tif file then I interpolate up to 50 meg.

Goodness me! yet another reason to hate the D70, people asking about things I really have absolutely NO IDEA about!

Given that your stock library is so technically illiterate (I bet they are not the only ones!), why not interpolate up to 100Mb and charge them more for used images as the images are so >obviously< of even higher quality....

Funny thing is - a 17MB TIFF means it's only 8 bit. 16 bit TIFFs are 35MB each. I'd rather spend the storage budget on color information.

It is really not a matter of quality but speed. This is the best size to offer clients who are designers. Designers are people who run to crazy deadlines and need stuff now!

They are the technically illiterate ones.

The Library I use can send a file anywhere, anytime, immediately. Most sales occur in the last few days of the month when deadlines are closing and stuff HAS TO BE DONE NOW!!!!


They request 8 bit colour so I shoot 8 bit colour easy. Quality is in the eye of the beholder.
