    treb999 got a reaction from Mat Mayer in Stock Footage - Getty Image Etc.   
    Shutterstock, Fotolia, if you go into your sales at Pond5 you can see what's sold.  Getty, I just do photos there, and it's such a mess I just take the money.  As far as money and video's, Shutterstock I've made the most on, Fotolia on average is twenty eight bucks a sale, but I've seen over a hundred per video there, as well as Shutterstock.  Pond5 you set your price, I go low and high, it doesn't seem to make much difference. 
    I should add, if you're going to start, keep with the majors.  Shutterstock, Fotolia, which is Adobe, and Pond5.  Getty I haven't a clue, like I said, they are so messed up right now it's hard to figure out what they're doing.  If you go on the fringe sites, you'll probably loose money, ie, it will take more time to upload to them than it's worth.

    Here's the manual for the camera.  Good to have on hand when you first get it.  I just use a 128 gigabyte card in mine.  And as for the 30 vs. 18 megapixels, yeah, I'm sure the 5d4 is more than capable.  But, I was waiting for the 5d4 to come out to replace my 5d3 and when I saw the actual specs I said screw that.  It wasn't the crop factor, it was the fact they couldn't put 60p 4k in the thing.  Most people don't spend three grand on a camera, more for the 5d4.  I make a living mainly taking pictures, not video, but, the writing is on the wall, video is the future and if I was going to spend over three grand for a camera, I wanted one that would last for at least three years.  So, I bought a used 1dc, no 60 4k, but I can live without that for a couple of years, maybe get a gh5 later in the year if I really need it.  Bottom line is Canon didn't really make any money off me this upgrade path and for what it's worth, the 1dc for the price used is a piece of kit that I can see using for more than three years, I'll probably keep it until it dies.  Bit of a rant, but hey Canon, for the people who do spend the money on new gear, give us our money's worth!

    treb999 got a reaction from Ty Harper in So, my Canon 1DC seems to have just bricked on me.   
    Mine was getting erratic, then it bricked.  By erratic I would have to turn it off, take out the battery, then turn it back on.  I was hoping it was just the battery so I popped 160 bucks for a new one, but that worked one time.  Then I sent it into Canon.  I figured it would be around 750, so I was close.  The problem with Canon is they have lost their sense of pride.  Granted, paying for a repair is par for the course, but when it came back the viewfinder wasn't cleaned, if anything, there was more junk in it.  And, dust on the sensor.  There is always dust, but, well, for almost a grand, you expect a little bit more from a company like Canon.

    If it's the PCB, in US dollars mine cost almost 900 to fix.  Turn around time was about two weeks.

    The sooner the better.  Nothing like doing simple editing in Premiere Pro and having the program stop in the middle of rendering, then the program closes itself.  PITA multiplied by about a million.
    And Photoshop is starting to screw up too, I've had to restart that program when it just does what it wants to do.  At least I can save my work in Photoshop then restart.  Premiere Pro just stops and that's it.
