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!!!!
PS if this keeps up I will be buying another D70 soon for my wife to shoot with. Where will it all end!
Pete "Cameras don't take photographs, people do" - John Hedgecoe said that. "Expose for the highlights and let the shadows take care of themselves" - Ansel Adams said that. "The camera is only a tool. The best saw in the world won't make you a great carpenter" - I said that A few photos, here for a reason
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.
