I need more megapixels!!!! :cool:

Pick a MF one.:D. With strobes you don't need high ISO performance.


5dmk3, 35L, 85L II, 300mm f2.8 IS I, 400mm f5.6
Fuji XT-1, 14mm f2.8, 23mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4, 56mm f1.2, 90mm f2, 50-140mm f2.8

This is my only real frustration with the 7D. But it's WAY better than my previous camera (30D). So I can't really complain too much for now.

Would love to make the jump to FF, but can't afford it until the end of this year, at the earliest. Getting the studio space sucked up all available extra funds...

I had my money on him being sarcastic, not sure about you though.

New topic guys..

Client proofing.
Problem : clients wants certain crops but you don’t want them to come over again.
Solution1: send several crops in email, but this takes too long.
Solution2: set up a smug mug, or zenifold, or similar hosting but they charge you per sale, and annual fee, plus I just don’t like the name smug mug..
Solution3: have custom software installed in your website that have cropping capabilities and business like data base integration, sales report, names, address and real time feed back..

I have found this software and recently purchased it and will give you guys feed back on this...
pretty sure this is going to stream line my flow 

let me know how most of you do client proofing flow..

thanks..

I use photobiz. I really dont see why everyone is excited about smug mug. Your giving up 15% of your gross to sell photos through them.

I have customized my sales cart ( and it still needs work ) where i keep the profits and it lets me have total control. I watermark the images when they are uploaded and Im done. Clients pay on line, order comes to me, i order prints and deliver to client in person.

Here is a link i sent to my son in California. Password is brent, small case letters. Click on a picture and you can see prices and how the cart works. Photobiz is the way to go for me.

My host is SmugMug and they do charge for a pro account and take a piece of sales, but it is totallly worth it for us because of all they do provide. They work with three different pro labs and each has many product offerings for your clients. They handle taking the payment, shipping, taxes, etc... They also make it very easy to customize your website.

Also, if you have a pro account and customize your page you can get rid of almost every reference to SmugMug (and using your own domain will get it out of your URL). If you take a look at our site it doesn't look anything like an average SmugMug site...

And you could just use your SmugMug site for proofing only if you don't want them to take a cut for each sale.

Glad it works for you. I looked at it and ran all the figures for 2011 sales. I would give up way to much of the gross to justify smug. Just on an at cost print figure, with 7000.00 is sales your giving up $1050.00 of the sale. Thats a lot of money on the at cost figure,,let alone a list list price figure your giving up. If you sell 15000.00 in list price prints, your giving up $2250.00 plus cost of the prints. 8x10's costs are exactly as my lab. I keep the 15%. Plus they get 15% on credit card purchase fees. our deal with photobiz is more than 50% better.

Smug is cute,catchy and offer a lot of benefits.....its the hidden costs that kept me away..........15% adds up.......and thats why they are in business to do this
