Inaugural Survey of Photo Buying Professionals Is Now Underway

PhotoResearch.info (http://www.PhotoResearch.info) – has launched it’s first survey for the year, asking photo buyers from all sectors of the stock photography industry, to share their thoughts, feedback and expectations. Organisers are expecting strong participation based on trends in this troubles & rapidly changing industry. Over 100 commercial photo buyers registered for the survey in the first week, and many more are expected to take part in the next few weeks.

This 2011 survey promises to provide the data needed for both independent photographers and stock photo libraries to understand changing expectations and desires of photo buyers, identify emerging trends and help them anticipate and adapt.

“The Stock Photography industry has been in a state of flux for many years now, and just when we thought it was settling down, it appears we might be headed in a full circle,” explained Brad Stephens, PRI director. “Over the last 12 months we’ve seen a lot of trends with pricing and licensing and that just don’t fit the pattern of previous years, and some are more like what we’d have expected 10 years ago. Of course in other areas, the industry is breaking new ground every month, so it’s an exciting time to be on the cutting edge as it were.”

Matt Brading, founder of OzImages International, reflected, “This sort of survey really helps all industry participants. It’s the kind of information that photographers can use improve many aspects of their businesses, from the subjects they shoot, the way they photograph them, right through to the marketing methods they use to get those images noticed. And when the photographers are doing a better job of it, it makes the Photo Buyer’s job significantly easier as well!”

It only takes a few minutes to take part in the survey. Photo buyers can login at http://www.PhotoResearch.info and select the 2011 Photo Buyers Survey.

RNG35 Inc. is pleased to present its newest version of the RNG35 35mm Adapter

Getting beautifully cinematic imagery from a digital camcorder is becoming more popular every day. Nearly every consumer grade and semi professional grade camcorder on the market have very small chip sensors. This puts a limitation on one very important factor in creating the “film” look with a digital camcorder: control of focus or the ability to achieve a shallow Depth of Field. RNG35 Inc. is pleased to present its newest version of the RNG35 35mm Adapter.

Pay attention the next time you go see a movie and you will notice how the camera focuses on a subject. Usually, the subject is in perfect focus while the rest of the scene is out of focus. This is how the director gets us to watch a specific part of the film. This is called a shallow Depth of Field. It is also a very filmic aspect of movies and something that the viewer identifies as a very artistic feel…whether they know what it is or not.

The RNG35 allows you to get this effect with a basic digital camcorder whether it’s an expensive High Definition camcorder or a lower end regular digital camcorder.

Look at some of your footage taken with a digital camcorder and you will notice how flat and in focus everything in the shot is. The RNG35 solves the most common problem that we face in wanting to make our digital footage look like film.

The December release of the new RNG35 has some nice extra touches without the added cost.

Let’s start from the front of the adapter to the back. First, the RNG35 comes standard with a Nikon mount. Nikon lenses are nice because over all these years, their mount has not changed. You can use any, old or new, SLR lens with the RNG35 Adapter.

There is also a new collimation feature. You can easily set the infinity focus to any position on the adapter. This will allow you free control of how close you can get to a subject or simply allow you to fine tune infinity focus.

Then there is the new large 16:9 ratio focusing screen. We made it larger so that the entire 35mm plane could be used.

At the back of the adapter, is a new easy on feature that will allow you to more easily attach the adapter to your camcorder and adjust the adapter to align the screen inside with your LCD.

This is a nice affordable 35mm Adapter for any indi film maker or for anyone that simply wants a nice cinematic look to their videos. Please see the website for demo videos and before an after samples.

The RNG35 is a 35mm adapter that allows you to use 35mm SLR lenses with a camcorder to get great shallow depth of field

Using a digital camcorder for professional production work is becoming more and more common these days. The search to make digital video look like film has been ongoing for many years.

In so many cases, even with high-end camcorders like the Panasonic HVX or the Canon XLH1 that boast the ability of 24 frames per second, there is still something missing from the picture.

The RNG35 is a vibrating (oscillating) adapter that runs of a small 2 x AA battery power module. The basic set up comes with everything you need to get going if you have a camcorder with a front thread size of 72mm (minus the SLR lens that you have to provide). If your camcorder has a different thread size, no porblem, we also sell common step up rings.

The RNG35 is professionally made with a nice sleek design and it is milled from solid aluminum so it is very lightweight and durable.

The RNG35 is the best 35mm adapter you can get for your money on the market in the professional adapter arena.
