Those people you describe aren't photographers! They're just people who happen to have a camera.

This!


I try to just be a fly on the wall when I'm shooting anything like that.

It's not photographers, It's everyone else. No matter where you go. Just went to another event at my daughters high school, all you hear is yak yak yak, click click click, ring ring ring. etc. The only time people shut up, was when their own kid was on stage.
Go to concerts, plays, movies etc. same story. People are just simply getting ruder.

Sign me up for two of those EMP's. Can you put a hot shoe mount on them? It will make it easier to aim.

My daughter's dance recital was this weekend as well. I was asked by the head of the Dance school if I would take pictures , I just used my 55-250 and sat in the back of the auditorium , borrowed a 430 EX II from my friend and took pictures all night. I'm TOTALLY new at this, I hope the flash didn't annoy anyone?? Hope I wasn't one of "those rude" people??:o

Oh no, you're completely correct. There will be larger applications available for sure. However, in our market research, we've found that it's much more rewarding to be able to handle this yourself. It's very gratifying to see the instant results from your own use of the Micro-EMP™ tool. It's fun and safe for kids to use, too!

Yes, I'd like to pre-order my very own personal "Space Monkey Zapper".

Now the waiting begins. :cool:

I can't shoot at Corona Del Mar beach anymore without a permit because the locals got fed up with the behavior of some pro photographers. I've seen it happen myself, photographers stake out a spot and when the light is right they start their shoot and actually yell at kids to "get out of my shot". Wrecked it for the rest of us, the ones who are considerate and aware that it is a PUBLIC beach. There are jerks at every level...

Cell phone jammers already exist if you know where to look, and you've probably encountered them and didn't even realize it even when you suddenly lost your connection.

I think if I had one, I would go to movies I didn't even like just to use it on annoying people.

Of course I might also see if it worked on the mic. at church, so maybe I shouldn't get one... :)

Every parent wants to get the best shots of their kids. I am a parent so can understand. It wasn't such a problem with film because

a) I didn't have children that time
b) people had to manual focus
c) I'm guessing AF systems were, for most cameras, not that great (for the SLRs that had it)

If you think you got it bad, so far, my worst example is of a parent that had a tablet android and used the camera to film the performance. She held it up with both hands above her head and everybody behind got a nice 7inch screen shot.

Dance + Flash = Bad

Period.

I would go so far as to say stage performance + flash = bad combination.

Crank up your ISO, shoot RAW and use manual white balance (90% of stage lighting is tungsten).

Sorry, I'm a bit opinionated on this particular topic. ;)

And (last I checked) completely illegal to own without jumping through major hoops.

And even then you can't own one "personally", they are for sale to businesses only.

There are lots of things that are "completely illegal to own" like some exotic animals but people have them anyway. I know a number of people who have cell phone jammers; they got them via mail order or when traveling overseas. Even the New York Times discussed this four years ago:

Just wait until my new Micro-EMP™ tool gets released. (I'm waiting for final EPA and FDA approval right now)

i think the FCC is probably the one you should be most concerned about. :p

The sad part is, he would probably be an instant millionaire if he could actually sell something like that...;)

Yeah, I wasn't going to tell them about it... what's that old saying? "It's easier to ask for forgiveness rather than ask for permission" LOL
