Good thread IMO. It means people like me don't need to post new threads that get three replies.

Still having fun with my CHDK'd IXUS Although fun and quality results are rather different things.

It is a good thread! and having no Mod it means we can be unexcellent to each other...though that usually results in being shunned from the group.

Gruso... I believe we need to see examples of your work - I'm sure anything you produce will be quality!

Note from mum: some **** stole my DSLR, leaving me with only my little Fujifilm compact. Plus I don't have my own computer handy for post processing. Hopefully both situations will be rectified in coming weeks...

Getty are opening the whole of flickr for choosing images to use, which means any pleb can make money. If you want more chances then go nuts tagging your shots. That's how they'll be found

Another video shot with a DSLR (Canon 5D)
24 Hours of Nürburgring in 19,500 HD frames
http://vimeo.com/11932030

A bit of camera shake in the beginning. I wonder if that's always an issue with filming with DSLR or limited to just the choice of lens.

I've thought about insuring my camera - who do you get it through?

Got my new camera upgrade today!
5d Mark ii

Been dying the last few days waiting for it to come.
This thing is damn heavy especially with the 70-200 on it!
Will have to build more muscewls or something lol.
Just took me about half an hour to figure out how to turn auto iso off though :-/
The iso range looks amazing, can't wait for low light!

they did
but there's now http://www.the-impossible-project.com/ a bunch of fanboys got together and started making the film. Depending on what film you buy it's not cheap (say about US$22 a pack for colour) but in comparison to shooting 120 film after processing and scanning etc - it's probably much the same.

There's also expired film on ebay but that gets pricey

Hi Everybody,

Just a quick question - I'm trying to get travel insurance on my Canon 30D for an overseas trip, but apparently I need to get the camera valued first. I've rung up a few camera stores but they said they don't do that. Any suggestions?

fyi photocontinental in brissy just sold a bunch of ex-police 30Ds with straps, manuals, cables etc for $199 each. Is it really worth insuring? Unless you have good glass attached to it that you'll be traveling with, it's probably not worth the money.

Also there are plenty of travel insurers that usually will cover up to about 3k in camera gear & are pretty cheap. NFI on names tho

that sounds like BS - I didn't have to get my camera valued. I just got travel insurance and it covered electronics (camera, laptop, etc) for up to a certain value!

Who are you getting insurance through?

I'm traveling with family and my father is booking all these things for me, so I'm not sure with travel insurance it is with. I told him it's odd as well, as they should just insure for a certain price range.

I've spoken to my father this morning and he's not bothering with the travel insurance company, and is now just trying to insure it with his home insurance company (GIO).

Thanks for your help guys

NismoR31, I'm taking the camera, two lenses, flash, bag and tripod. But for some reason they only wanted the camera body valued even though one of the lenses is more expensive. Should be all ok now that my father is changing insurers.

yeah we've also got my gear covered by our contents insurance so if anything happend and the travel insurance wouldn't cover it we'd just commit some fraud and claim in when we got home. Yay fraud

It's starting to sound tempting. The camera's covered under contents insurance but I was trying to get travel insurance as well.

I just got a text from my father - GIO won't give travel insurance for the camera as we didn't book the rest of our travel insurance with them.
My father suggests Protecsure but again they're asking for a Valuation Certificate

Thanks heaps Ruthykins, I'll look into it now.

edit: Completed the online form. Just waiting for a response.
As a backup, and for anyone else interested, I found out that Foto Riesel (Sydney city) will do an vaulation for camera equipment.

I guess, if you want similar effects, try a crop sensor lens on a full frame body and zoom until the physically obsured bits are out of the way. it gives you a similar, natural vignette. Otherwise, as posted, it's more about the interaction of the old and the new which is fasinating!
