JVC delivers again!

Just want to mention how much i love JVC cameras. Only JVC could give me images like this:

http://www.istockphoto.com/file_clos...php?id=3757040

The camera stayed in a vertical position all day in a very hot room and worked like a dream. (blasting the AC to keep cool helps too)

Just a side note, iStockPhoto/Video is an enormous ripoff. To see why, tell me how much time you spent getting that footage. Now for how much money you are ever going to make off that clip, how does that break down per hour? How much does that compare to how much you would have made off that video if you'd been commissioned to shoot it?

Another great thing is if someone wants to use your footage in a multi-million dollar national ad campaign, he pays 30 bucks, same as anybody else, and you get just 20% of that. Your footage could be all over the airwaves and you've made a grand total of 6 bucks. It's criminal.

On the other hand, if you were selling extra b-roll, or subject matter that was just never included in the project you shot it for, $6 is better than nothing.

There are many many stock agencies out there where your B-roll can earn you a lot closer to what it's actually worth. Selling yourself out for less than you're worth just because it's "better than nothing" is a very dangerous attitude.

Ben, footage really looked good. BTW determining how one sells their footage is a personal choice not really subject to the opinion of others. Even if given away for free I would not consider that dangerous.

It's not just about your personal choice for how to distribute your images, it's how they affect the entire market for those types of images. It's dangerous because if you give your work away for cheap now, that's the value you've established for yourself, and it is very, very hard to raise that value once you realize that you can't make a living or even pay for your equipment.

Somewhat true. However, it is still a matter of choice. I have given away countless hours and $$$ of footage for projects I consider to be worthy causes. Has that hurt my income? Sure. But did it make me feel good? You bet. And not to mention the unanticipated side benefit of the referrals that I have recieved. Anyway, sorry I have gotten so far off track from the original post.
