do you have more information on the documentary? im very close with a bunch of people from haiti. one of my good friends uncle's and cousins all were just approved to enter the united states, they showed up 3 weeks ago, airfare and everything were taken care of by my friend and her family, but they were/are in rough shape. we had a collection at work to get them clothes, food, school supplies...etc...so they could get themselves settled in.

either way im sure my friend and her family would be very interested in whatever you're working on.

Yeah. I bought a roll of Ilford Delta 400 Pro at Bromfield Camera and used it up in 3 hours walking around town. Brought it back and they wanted $24 for prints and I'd have to wait 2-3 days while they shipped it back from and to Kansas...

I was told to check Colortek - anyone deal with them?

I've read good things about Color Services over in Needham although I've never used them myself. Seems the prices can get up there also but at least it's local.

I can provide with some quick background, but it's much more indepth. It's a multi-media documentary piece incorporating audio, photo, and video..with interviews etc.

We're focusing on tent cities in Haiti. The one we were at yesterday for example, Graceville Tent City, which is in Carrefour. After the quake, over a million people moved to tent cities. Many of them are technically on "private property" now people are being forcefully evicted which goes against many UN laws and human right laws. The one yesterday, the land is owned by a Pastor...now keep that in your head while I describe what happens there. The pastor put up a huge gate at the only way in and out. and LOCKED IT during hte recent hurricane, locking people in. 2 children died during that.

Also, this "pastor" hires rape gangs to go through the camp. if you don't want to have sex, your tent is destroyed. Also he has shot gun gangs who come through and just shoot at people.

There is much more to the story, but that's the gist of just ONE camp. There are over 500 in Haiti at this point.

Nice. Maybe I'll get 1 or 2 for formal occasions...

Scott - I'm not doubting your info, but how are these stories verified? Do you follow the documentary journalist around and are the stories by word of mouth and verified later?

I'd say either 5Dc or 7D.


Canon 5D MkII | Canon 16-35mm f/4 | Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM | Canon 24-105mm f/4 | Tamron 70-300mm VC | Canon 430EX II | Benro A2682TB1

I just sold my 7D and 5D2 for another 5D3. But i need another off-site backup. I loved the 7D, but for what i need, it can be even less than that. 5Dc i'd be worried about the mirror all the time (Because of its lifespan). Though i do have CPS, i don't want to put $300. into a $500. camera anytime soon. Hmm.

6D is too expensive. Maybe i should pick up a 40D or something... though the whole shutter thing comes into play again. Maybe the 5Dc isn't a bad choice after all and i could keep everything full frame. Hmm.

I'm thinking about throwing my 7D on the market - haven't decided yet, because for those prices I might want to just keep it. What's held me back is laziness in checking the actuation count. Is there a shutter count program for macs?

The X100S might be my APS-C format body. Really tempted.

Hmm, there's an interesting thought thrown into the mix. A X100 for a third backup camera. Hmm. Under $1000. , wide universal lens, now has full support through Lightroom, not bad at all.
