I find that the Sony Digitals are very easy to use. I have taken about 3,000 pictures with my first one.

Just wondering, I have an attractive friend who I may photograph, she is a pro.

a) I don't think I want to show her face, we live in a small town.

b) I would pay her but also wonder if I should get a model's release to protect myself.

c) She is 24 years old but shaves and looks younger; I would like to protect my self there as well.

Any recommendations?

I have a few ideas for you.

Photo Suite, Photo Shop and there are many more that are wonderful programs that can enable you to delete her face. They can also change other things like red eye. I know there are purest that hate these programs while others depend on them daily. If you wanted to avoid the software you could simply pose her so she has her face hidden.

Like you, I would pay her for her time, too. I think when you do so you will find her to be much more cooperative. I would also get a release. I am certain you can find a good one online, just do a google search.

To protect yourself as far as her age is concerned I would get copies of her ID. Make sure that they have not been tampered with. Somepeople might think this overboard but to avoid spending time in jail, it is worth it.

I have done modeling photography and found it to be wonderful!!! The girl looks at you and you direct her every move. She is like putty in your hands.

I hope you show us what she looks like. You have piqued my interest.

8ball,

I agree with Max's comments. I'm an amatuer photog. You really should have her sign a model's release. Check some Camera stores for the release. I know one of my local store carries them. Photoshop or some other imaging program can blur her face to protect her identity. Good luck!

The camera I would recomment for taking yourself in action it the Nikon Coolpicks 4500. It it in two parts the the screen can be facing the action. I would also suggest a 0.7 wide angle adaptor to get more in the action. Not a perfect camera but not bad. I have used a little it's earliest brother 995. One of the problens is the long shutter delay, which can be up to 0.8 seconds. May not sould long but for action it is useless. You have to pose for shot.

I have been using a Fuji FinePix Digital (don'r remember thje model A260 or something like that) It cost me $150 has a nice zoom (not the crappy digital zoom) great 3.1 mega pixel resolution and is VERY easy to use.

Hell I just connect the USB cable to the compueter and camera and then turn it on. The software does everything else automatically. I only have to click yes twice and then remember to delete the pix form the camera afterwards (three buttons total to delete).
I've gotten some Fine pictures (no pun intended). Its also small and very portable.
I haven't met a lady that did not like it.

Hey guys,

I do not own a digital camera. I picked up a chica in Lima and took her to my room the other day. Before I knew it, I was taking pictures of her with a regular camera. Now, the problem is, where can I get these developed without getting in any trouble? The pictures are of her nude and also some x-rated ones. I am afraid if I took them to Walmart they would not develop them and may call LE.

Thanks for any help.

Stinger - I would ask on your local forum where people get photos developed. Not only do you not want to have a hassle, but many photo lab employees make 2 or 3 copies of the interesting ones. I know that some mail order places are reliable, and you should be able to do a Google search such as, "film developing" +discreet (or +adult)

I've had the best luck with getting a small digital camera that fits in my pocket. 3 megapixel is optimal in my opinion.

I have gotten pictures done at Kmart, Wal-Mart and Walgreen’s with no problems. The only content they are required to report to my knowledge is ch*ldren.

Also a good point they can make copies without your knowledge. I did have one kid steal my pictures and negatives at a locally owned retail store, but the management replaced everything. But other than that I have had hundreds developed with no problems.

8ball --

i am a pro photograper.

the model's release and the age verification are two separate things, both of which you will want to make decisions about dealing with.

re: model's release

it's my understanding that you don't need a model's release unless you plan to publish the pictures in any way. that is to say, if you just plan to look at the pictures yourself, then don't worry about it (it's not a crime to take photos, and there's no legal implication if they don't go anywhere), but if you ever think that you might want to sell the pictures, or post them to the web in any kind of forum, or even send them to someone in email, then it's best to get a model release.

as a rule, i always try to get a release signed even if i think i'll never use the pictures for anything. it could happen that an unforseen use may come up in the future, and it's hard to get a release signed after the fact (especially with the type of people we're talking about here...) there's a release available on the web: www.dccphoto.com/release.htm. i hereby make no statement attesting to the "legal-worthiness" of the aforementioned release, however. use at your own risk.

re: nudes and id (bear in mind that i'm not a lawyer -- if you have questions, contact one...) the laws and enforcement of same vary by location and the whims of le. the whole legal area surrounding this topic is one big shade of grey.

the law as i know it (2257, title 18) states that a producer of pornography (which is you, as soon as the shutter clicks) must keep copies of 2 forms of id, one of which being a picture id. it also states other things -- detailed info can be found on the web -- it's boring, but reccommended reading...

my best practices regarding releases and id:

the ids i prefer to use are: driver's liscense, ss card and/or passport. i always shoot a close-up of the ids on a table (for detail), and then get a shot of the model holding her ids next to her face. when the model signs the release, i get a shot of her signing the paper. if sex is to be a part of the shoot (with me or anyone else) i put an addendum on the release, which i require her to sign, that states that she fully consents to any sexual activity that takes place during the course of the shoot. in addition, if i'm doing video, i'll get footage of her stating that she's over 18 years old, and that she's participating in today's shoot in a fully consentual way and that she fully consents to all the actions that take place during the course of the shoot (the photography, any sex that may happen, etc.).

even though i do all of the above on a regular basis, i've never tested any of this in a court of law yet (thankfully). i figure if a picture is worth a thousand words, it's good to have those words speaking in my favor. i also think that the process of preparing all that paperwork, and the id checking and photographing, and the signing of detailed releases deters a model from bringing false charges against me.

i don't mean to scare you -- there are, i'm sure, millions of x-rated pictures out there that were "made between friends", and there will never be a problem between either party. but if you don't know the person you're photographing extremely well, then i recommend taking extra precautions to ensure that you can prove that the shoot happened in a friendly and consentual way, and that you're also able to use the photos in the ways you and the model agreed upon.

happy shooting!

All places that develop pictures are required to call the police if they have suspected child pornography. Some stores have their own guidelines as to what they will develop. Most will print nudity but some won't print any form of penitration. This all depends on if they actually look at the pictures too. If they don't print them they are supposed to give you back your negatives. If this happens take them somewhere else or send them off.

Hi Cronin,
Thanks for the kind words.

You mentioned another digi-camera. A SLR. Before you purchase, may I suggest you look at the newest Canon 8 MB camera EOS-1D Mark II.

The price may be comparable. I had a Nikon. I am now using Canon G3. Very high quality 4 MB pictures. Hope to post some results when I get back from CTG next month.

Enjoy.

03-23-04, 19:06
Hi NYC Expat,

I'll look forward to those posts with your Canon. All the camera choices seem to be a trading off between the good the bad and the ugly qualities in each choice.

I guess I've become stuck on the idea of a digital SLR for the higher image quality afforded by the lenses. And the prices are about the same as the advanced single lens digital cameras.

The Canon EOS Rebel had a lot going for it. It seems to be a very popular camera, all those photographers can't be wrong. And Canon is heavily supported in the PRC. I live in Guangzhou, and there are several Canon outlet shop fronts here. I have yet to see a Nikon outlet anywhere, might be some in Hong Kong.

There seems to be a lot of jawboning about purple fringing in both the Canon Rebel and the Nikon D70. I've seen the images from the Nikon, and it does seem to be rather noticable in low light conditions (which is where I'll most use it, of course) and gets intolerable at higher ISO sensitivity. It seems weird that no one (according to the reviewer) knows what is causing this, but if the culprit is in the digital sensor, there probably won't be any improvement in the new Canon EOS. In fact it could be worse with the higher resolution. (BTW, this makes me sounds like I know what I'm talking about, but I really don't know too much.)

I've also seen the vignetting on the Nikon images and that is a real disappointment, both to the reviewer and to me. I guess those ghosts could be corrected in PS, but what a hell of a job that would be. It looks like some of the weird stuff which comes out of my cheap little Canon A40.

So the Nikon D70 was far from a perfect choice, but I netted out on the fact that it is new equipment and the Rebel has been out there for a while. However, that new Canon EOS sounds interesting. I'd be willing to wait a little while for it to come out, I'm not in any burning hurry. But if it doesn't appear before June, I'd have to go get something else or it will be a long blurry summer.

Here's a question for you or anyone else interested. I probably will only buy a single lens to start out with after dropping $1000 USD on the SLR body. Any recommendations on which lens to get? You know the kind of images I do. Model at from 10 inches to about 6 feet from the camera. Never wide angle or telephoto of course.

Another Canon A40 image at 1400x1600 (highest) res, super fine compression (highest), downloaded to iMac iPhoto as jpeg and then into PS 7.0 as jpeg, minimal editing (some tone adjustment in the reds and some unsharp mask) and resized to 640x480 at PS compression setting 12: image of a Girl in a Guangzhou Barbershop.

Hi Cronin,
I still have my 35 mm. Pentax with several lens. I enjoyed using a wide angel/portrait zoom lens, 35 to 85 mm. Or perhaps 40-105 zoom is recommendable.

You'll want one with macro for those close ups you and others on this board enjoy viewing. Only drawback with macro is sharp images because of movement when releasing the shutter. Here a tripod and self-timer is recommended.

Most important, read the reviews, do your homework before investing on the body and lens you prefer. I am sure you will. I've seen many of your pictures and they are good. When the equipment gets better, the shots and enthusiam on your part will explode. Have fun.

AGSen03
03-24-04, 18:16
Cronin,

For the current mission, a zoom len with the focal length of 35-70mm should be the best. Pay little $ extra for the fixed maximum f/stop, which (1) the f/stop will not be compensated when you change the zoom focal length, (2) will better handle the low ambient light and close-up situation, respectively. I personally recommend the 35-70mm f/2.8 zoom len.

Also, with the digital SLR camera, you should pay attention to the CCD sensor specification. For the Nikon digital SLR series, the CCD sensor factor (lens image coverage) is x1.5. That is your lens focal length, for example 35-70mm, will be multiply by 1.5 to 50-105mm (round-off).

BTW, I do enjoy your outstanding works. Keep up the good works.

I finally tracked down the new Canon 8 mega pixel EOS-1D Mark II on the Digital Photography Review page (dpreview.com). Its not yet been released, just announced. And I remembered seeing that annoncement somewhere when NYC Expat mentioned this camera.

Omigod, what a camera. Omigod what a price: $4,500 USD. Sans lens, of course. Yikes. It would be a real kick just to see one of those, and it would be even more fun to see someone knowledgable put it through its paces. I can't even understand the specs on the review page let alone how to use this digital Stratavarius.

Seems to me that Canon is out to claim undisputed king of the hill with this instrument. But what the hell do I know, I'm still making painfully pathetic images of really pretty girls, like the overexposed nonsense below.

Oldtime Monger
03-26-04, 05:58
The early reviews on the Canon ID Mark II are impressive and it is clearly vastly improved over the earlier model which was introduced in September 2001. That being said however, I would only purchase this DSLR camera if you're planning to do primarily sports or action photography because of how quickly this camera autofocuses and rapid 8.5 frames per second shooting and the maximum burst of 40 images. If you're planning to do mostly glamour and portrait photography, I'd recommend the 6.3 MP Canon 10D with a CMOS sensor; at $1,500, it is $3,000 less than the street price of a new 1D. I do a significant amount of sports photography, so the chances of me trading in my old 1D for the new model are good.

Cronin,

Eight megs is old hat by now and you don't need to spend $4,500 dollars to have that. My new Sony DSC-F828 is a a meg camera for under $1000 dollars. If you want a really really big file the Kodka based on the Nikon F5 is over 13 megs.

The problem with these big file size is they take up lots os space on the cameras card and the images are slower to load because they are so dam big. With a 5 or 6 meg camera shot at max the image is between 14 and 18 megs, so only about 60 shots on a one gig card. Now go to 8 megs and you get only about 36 shots to a one gig card.

How many cards can you carry? To do a 300 shot shoot and not downlaod cards you need 8 to 9 cards. I don't know about you but if I stop to download I find the girls lose interest.

BEST PUNTHER DIGITAL CAMERA. 1.3 MEGAPIXELS , only $49
Vivitar 3345 WITH FLASH*****.

Punthers,

For those that manage to convice the providers to let you take some pics. (always offer to do faceless pics for the shy ones. Pose from behind, doggy style, which happen to be the best , see the ass and pussy at the same time :) Or pussy spread with pillow covering face.

I have found the best compromise to do punther pics.

The vivitar 3345. They are going for $49 at Walmart currently.

http://www.vivitar.com/Products/DigCams/1mpdsc.html#V3345

Also get a rechargeable kit , about $19 - $25 to save on batteries.

For those who travel, it is perfect. If you lose it, it's no major loss.

** It has FLASH which is critical for us mongers, since our pics take place inside with low lightings most of the time.

Will be posting some pics in the next few days.

My Sony DSC-F717 5 mpix optical zoom, with night vision shot, and with the patented Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lense is just fine thank you! It may be kinda bulky, but it serves me well when I am trying to take long range shots of the SW's across the street.

The night vision feature allows me to take pix during low to zero light conditions without having to use a flash...minimizing detection when I am trying to take pix of girls who don't want their photos taken in the first place.

I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with these little video cameras. You know, the ones that keep popping up when you're trying to surf the web.

I was thinking about installing one in the headliner of my car, disguised as a dome light or overhead console (depending on the size.

I could run the wires to a laptop computer or video deck and record any activities that might occur in the car.

If anyone has tried this or anything similar, please let me know.

I was able to use a handheld video camera once while getting a bj. The trick was to keep some music on when you shut off the car. Also, if your LCD screen flips out and all the way around, set it up that way so you can see what you're pointing at. I could have done a much better job if I had done that before.

I don't think Jackson allow video, but I'll see if I can save a pic from it to post.

Topic: Photographs of SWs on the street and during sessions.

I realize that it can be difficult getting photographs of SWs, but it can be done. I know that a lot of you probably don't have cameras, but even the throw-a-ways they have today can get the job done.
The best way of handling this situation is this; when you approach the SW on the street or in the car, tell them you wish to take photographs of them. Don't even talk about sex or money for sex till you know 100% that she's not a cop.
The SW will probably charge a little extra for photographs being taken, but it beats the cost of being busted.
Once in the motel room or her place, be sure to take the photographs first before you talk about extra activity and price. Cops will not take their clothes off or allow you to touch them while setting them up in a pose. Always assure the girl that you won't have their face in the photographs. Now maybe some won't mind it, but always double check with the SW before you go posting photographs of her on here with the face shown.
Cops can't bust you for taking photographs!
Always try to get some information on her. Where she usually walks, her first name, and a description as best as you can. In other words, specifics about her!
Be smart on the street you guys! The cops are setting up stings across the country to bust men. Turn into a photographer so you greatly decrease your chance of being busted.

Whoopster,
been looking into the same thing myself because my camcorder just makes too much noise and wont stash as easily. Havent purchased anything yet as specs and prices are all over the place, but I feel wireless may be a good option for obvious reasons. You may also consider infrared if you do your mongering in low light but its drawbacks are no color picture and the infrared has small LED lights that the SW may notice. Some will do both and switch over when the light gets low enough but they cost much more. Other specs to consider will be more lines of resolution for better picture quality and a low lux rating if you dont get infrared. Let me know if you stumble on anything worthwile. PM me if youd like.


Reno Dude,
It sounds like a great plan but IMHO its a bit impractical as routine proceedure. As someone who always tries to get pics of the girls I pick up, I usually get one of three answers:
1. Okay.
2. How much more you gonna pay?
3. No fucking way!
Even when I assure them it will just be a pussy shot and no one will see thier face, my success ratio is still only about 1 in 5. Also, I find many SW's are in a hurry to get on with buisiness so beating around the bush about your true intentions may cause problems. Theres plenty of other effective ways to make sure your not dealing with a cop. Good luck with it anyway.


Downunder,
great shots of some nice women but if they're from the US you may get a much wider and more appreciative audience by posting them in the section: United States/General Information/Street Walker Photos. Unless you'd like to comment on the camera that took them of coarse! Still nice shots.

I hope Downunder is not claiming to have taken those photos. I don't know about all of them but I'm the one that took the #2 picture he lists below. It's my picture that I posted. I'm not sure if he is trying to take credit when he posts "MY top 5". In any event, I don't like when people take photos and claim they took them or post/link to them in any way! Guys, if you didn't take the photos don't report or link to them. It's not cool. I'll never understand why guys do this. The funniest was when some dude emailed me a photo that I took and tried claiming he took it!

As far as the camera I used... I used a Olympus C-50 5 meg digital camera in the highest quality setting. The room was very very dark. I took about 20 photos of her and she was GREAT. The camera is great and I get great results. If you want an idea of what kind of quality you can get with outdoor shots go to some other sections that I posted non-chica photos in. I'll list them below.

Saint or anyone who help - I got a camera related question. I got a 4 pixal Kodak digital camera with a lagging shutter but it does the job. Were I have the problem is in low lighting situations where I can't see what I'm shooting. Is there anything I can do or that just common to most digital camera's ??

JMG
08-08-04, 03:11
yeah... that's a problem with non-slr cameras. you're at the mercy of the sensivity of the image sensor when you're trying to frame a pic in almost no light. even if you can get a proper exposure in the dark by slowing down shutter speed, you can't see the little screen to frame the shot.

about the only thing you can do is use the optical viewfinder if you have one.

it's probably not worth it to buy another camera, but i know sony makes some digital models with infrared capability and laser focusing -- i've gotten some surprisingly good pics in the dark with that camera (b&w, but bright and in focus).

Whoopster
08-09-04, 00:30
Hey downunder,

My suggestion on the low light problem is to just shoot anyway, but take a bunch of pictures. The great thing about digital is you can throw away the bad ones and it doesn't cost anything.

I find that if I want a shot bad enough, but I'm in bad lighting or whatever, I can usually get at least one decent pic if I take a bunch of shots.

I use a Canon Digital Rebel with the standard lens. It doesn't have a lot of zoom, but I'll be getting a 300 mm lens soon.

Also, using Photoshop or some other image processing software really helps a lot. You can brighten and sharpen to save what would otherwise be throw-aways if they were on film.

Good luck out there.

Guys,

I just got a new digital camera, an Olympus C-5060WZ (5.1 mp).
Now I need to put it to good use. I know this topic is primarily about photo equipment but please allow me to "broaden" the subject, so to speak. Another necessity for the photography that we're interested in, is a willing model. What have you found guys found to be the best way to locate models. I have found some websites with model listings although I think would tend to prefer amateur talent, at least until I have more experience as well. Has anyone tried something like Craigslist.com or any of the model discussion forums? What kind of a response did you get?

What should I expect to pay a model (I'm in So. Calif.)? I imagine that there will be some difference between their asking price and the market price but right now I have no idea what that might be. I am going to a photoshoot in about a week. Unfortunately, it's just glamour/swimware with no nudity or even string bikinis. But for $30, at least five models and no more than five photographers per model, I figure it's worth it to get a little experience working with some models.

Thanks for any tips and I'll pass on what I learn.

09-10-04, 19:37
I would think in CALI there would be no shortage of starving wannabe actresses and models that you could snag for a reasonable fee to do a shoot. Try submitting an ad in the job section of your local paper. An offer to burn the girl a disc with all her pics on it for her portfolio may provide further incentive.

something to know about the cell phones with picture-taking capabilities: many public swimming pools, gyms, etc., are banning them. they don't want someone in the locker room taking photos of kids changing clothes. i've seen signs at my town's swimming pool telling the lifeguards to confirep001e any of the photo-cell phones they see. they'll keep them in the office until you're done with your workout, then they'll let you have the phone back.

Well, I finally upgraded my trusty, old Canon A40 to a Canon 300D. I got the new all black model, its a beauty. I'm really happy with it.

I had decided to stay with Canon instead of jumping ship to the Nikons. Brand loyalty counted for a lot of that. I never had one single problem with the A40, other than it took shitty photos (IMHO). I really liked the new G6, based on the on-line specs, and was leaning toward that over the 300D. But when I went out and actually held them both in my hand, the SLR won hands down. The look and feel of the 300D is a world apart from the little G6. It seemed to me like more of an actual upgrade, based on my current skill level. And I was willing to bite the bullet on the size and weight portability factor.

Now, the problem is, I am so far down on the learning curve that I am having trouble generating images that are much better than my old A40. The one thing that I really wanted was better resolution. And so far, I'm not getting that. I have mostly very soft resolution. One problem for sure is that I can't hold the camera still no matter how hard I try. Even using a tripod isn't getting the job done. Occaisonally, I get a beautiful crisp image, maybe one out of twenty or so tries. So I know the 300D can do it. I just can't make it happen on purpose, seems to be a random event. Obviously, the camera is up to the task, but I'm not. But I've only had the SLR for 3 weeks, so I'll get better...I hope. Its pretty frustrating right now though.

Here's a couple of images I took recently. The color is way better than the old A40. That means a lot less work in PS retouch, which is a good thing, since that is an art form in itself which I have never fully mastered. Anyway, comments gladly accepted.

Hi Cronin,

Just to say that I was a rather silent but avid fan of your photo adventures.

I feel that you may have this problem with the 300Dbecause it israther bulky and heavier than your previous camera. This in turn leads to shake when you press the shutter button. This can be seen even when you use the tripod.

I'm using the G5 and and had that minimal jitter which causes my pix to look very soft on normal sizes and somewhat out of focus when i really blow it up to max size.

I hope that helps and I'm not talking thru my ass!

Hello guys,

I will be traveling to Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China soon. Being in the market for a new digital point and shoot, I was wondering would it be cheaper to buy a camera there or get it stateside? If any of you camera buffs could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.

Happy New Year,

Mattrick

Mat:

I'm not an expert by any means, but I just spent several months trying to make the same choice on a new camera. This is some of what I learned. I think the conventional wisdom certainly is that almost any camera is going to be cheaper in Hong Kong than anywhere else in the world, especially the USA.

There are several caveats, though. People are waiting in line to cheat you in Hong Kong, and in ways that you would never think of until after the fact. Just one example: Apparently there are many gray market cameras which go for full price. In fact, I've heard that there are businesses which will determine for you if you have purchased a gray market camera or not, but that is only after you have been cheated. Or they will switch out only part of the camera for some knock off part to get a few extra bucks. There are some threads discussing the Hong Kong Camera Purchase topic on various photo discussion boards, just search on google, you should find it easily.

Having said all that, though, I should tell you that I finally bought my new Canon 300D in a little shop here in Guangzhou, PRChina. I decided that I could get almost the same deal with a lot of haggling, maybe within a thousand RMB or so. I finally paid 6400 RMB for the 300D "kit" which includes the lens. And I also wanted to develop a "customer relationship" with a local shop, which can be very helpful at times since repeat customers are valued and treated differently.

If you purchase in Hong Kong, here's some things that will minimize the rip-off factor. 1) Even though many people speak good English, take along a Cantonese speaking native if at all possible. The BS will be much less when the salesperson is talking to a native rather than a laowei. 2) Stick to the major camera dealers like "Broadway", more professional tends to be more reputable. 3) Go to a cheaper area of Hong Kong like Mong Kok and bargain vigorously. Avoid Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, too many tourist eating sharks. There's supposed to be a "Photographers street" in Central with reputable shops catering to pros, but again, this seems to be the high rent district to me. 4) BTW, I would say don't purchase in Shenzhen. There is a lot of money washing around in Shenzhen, and everything tends to be pricier.

Finally, consider this. If you are looking to purchase a 200-300 US dollar point and shoot, it probably doesn't matter all that much where you buy it. Sure, you could save maybe 50 bucks over a mail order deal, but the time and trouble to get that 50 wandering around Hong Kong may not be worth it. Personally, I know I'd spend 1000 RMB just having fun in the city, so I'd spend more than I saved.

Here's a photo from my new Canon 300D SLR. This is a favorite cafe along the infamous "Road of Gold" SW area in Guangzhou, about 1 in the morning. I had to take 6 or 8 images at various settings, all in RAW, and then process the best RAW image, the TIFF image and the JPEG compression to get one good shot. Are we having fun yet? Well, yeah...

I know I'm not the only one that feels this way but just would like to say Thanks for All of your Work / pics / info. Some of us are just getting on the photography boat and really are thankful for your sharing camera info and real pics, the kind we like to see from these cameras. I have been looking here http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Canon/canon_eos300d.asp for info a point and shoot 5mp digital for my next trip. I have narrowed it down to the Canon S500 and the Sony DSCW1, leaning more on the Sony because of its video quality. I took a Canon rebel Ti film camera to LOS last year and got tired carrying the thing around. I was and still am a nubie. Lots of tips in the forums of the above site, even Canon 300D camera specific forums that might help you out a bit. http://forums.dpreview.com********forum.asp?forum=1031&page=10 Thanks Again!

LazzaroCapturing direct from VHS/DV tapes to PC will consume lots of space in the harddisk. Its because the files are not compressed (AVI). You need to have larger harddisk and normally 1 hour recording will consume less than 30GB (from my experince). Later you can change format to mpeg to reduce file size or burn in DVD/VCD.

There are lots of video editing software and amond them I'll suggest Pinacle Studio as this is easy and user friendly.

you can install pinnacle studio before copying the vhs format to your pc (avi). after installing the software, you can select "capture" and the sofware will search your video capture driver and determine your harddisk space and speed. after capturing the video from your vhs player you can edit i.e add cut/paste/text/background music/transition etc. finaly you can burn into any format you like but beware, for renderring the files from avi into other formats will takes ample times

It seems that the problem is nothing to do with the tape or the camera either. I suspect that your PC's performance is low. You must at least running on Pentium 3 and above with minimum of 256MB RAM and at least 5400rpm harddisk. If its still crash, then check your FireWire card or your video capture card. Check their driver whether they work properly and try to reinstall your Pinnacle Studio.

From your vague description of the problem, there could be a number of points from which to troubleshoot... I used Pinnacle 8 on my ancient low-spec PC for over 3 years. It is so easy to use, but so easy to crash the PC. Try checking the Pinnacle web site for the latest patch to version 8, which will at least ensure that you are running the latest version.

I currently use Pinnacle Studio 10 Plus on a very high spec machine (2Gb RAM, Pentium Dual Core, 500Gb SATA2 HDD, etc.)... even the latest patch still doesn't prevent a crash every other time I use the software. But I am so used to the editing interface that I haven't been able to find anything remotely close to Pinnacle in terms of ease of use.

Good luck, AR+

in my picturing usually i’m using a nikon 5400, simple, stays in the pocket, nothing for people getting just “away” with it (robbing!).

when i am more sure i’m using my canon 350d with 10-22 or 20-35 lenses (for indoor use) and an extra flash (canon 580) usually oriented on the roof. the setting is at a 400 asa speed, approx 125-200 in speed and 4,5-5,6 in objective opening. in this way you usually get a good sharp image with some light from the room also, specially if it is day! but also in the night!

when i reduce for posting i do not only resize, i try cutting exactly the interesting area… you are not interested in the room’s tapestry however?

i still have some old photos, scanned, and i’ll post some… even some site pics are good, really showing the girls, just with clothes and lights and no photoshop or whatever, i’ll show you some (fucked of course).

i still prefer pictures, with the size of 640x480 or less the video give no details and often no colour and no contrast…

i`m a bit mystified as to why "irfanveiw" is resizing to bmp, as the file is clearly stated as jpg. once resized, bmp is produced. until i suss this out, perhaps i am better off just paying for the "resize" software, mentioned in the photo guidelines of isg.

thanks for the advice.

JVC make a good line of digital vcs using hard drive. Price depends on hd size and, more importantly pixels. So your price/quality tradeoff is quite straightforward. Many others allow buring to small DVD.

Tapes are becoming obsolete (I am going to give mine away) unless you are talking about professional cameras where the price range begins way above your price range.

As you use US$ for your quote, I assume you are US based. Price varies a lot but if you can get to Hong Kong that would be your best bet if price is king.

Martians
08-21-06, 07:11
The best thing would be to change the settings on your camera and make internet the default mode. You can specify the size etc so this will make all your photos aceptable without further editing.

You must change the format to jpg or gif to post. CVlipping off the unwanted parts would also make them smaller in size. Experiment with a program like MS Photo editor which you should have if you are using Windows OS

dear speed 13,

some suggestions for non apple users.

a) you can resize, as you want up to the single pixel a picture with the standard windows xp microsoft office picture manager. of course it's not photoshop, but for making an image 640 x 640 it's well enough.

b) you can even process a little bit in contrast and light.

c) bmp converting: even here you can use the standard paint software, it will "save as" a *.jpg what you want, and then use the picture manager.

d) one good thing with picture manager is that you can clearly cut the pics to what is interesting.

e) my advice is to use always the camera at the maximum dimension of file in jpg, so you can really work…

here a couple of well known samples

(camera is a canon 350d, with 10-22 lens, or 20-35 and a ex 580 flash used indirectly, usually on the roof, sensivity setting usually 400 asa)

se here, just reduced full size photo, and some work…

1 and 2

1 standard… dark picture of mistery tramp, made with my old nikon 5400
2 standard picture worked a little bit
3 detail 640 x 640 a good detail…
4 standard picture of valentina sleeping, made with new canon 350 d
5 standard picture worked
6 detail 640 x 640

more confrontation here:

I have looked at several cameras that were good for taking yourself in action. One of the requirements is that is must have a wide angle lens, of at least 28 mm in the 35 mm equivalent. Most "view" digital cameras have a no wider view than 35 mm, which does not get in enough of the action.

The camera that I did find was a Nikon CookPics 8400. It has the equivalent of a 24 mm to 70 mm zoom, so it can go very wide to get more of the action. however, it has a very "slow' lens, particulary at the 70 mm end (f4.9). But it is a 8 Mp camera and has a swivel viewing screen so you can see yourself in the screen while you hare hold the camera way from you.

The only trouble with these type of cameas and all "view" cameras is that the lenses are mostly crap. They don't compare in quality to the interchangeable lenses from the SLR cameras.

But this is my choice for self action.

You can get more details of all cameras from

I second the previous poster's comment. However, I would like to add that I am looking for one that is compatible with a computer. That way I will be able to hook it up with my laptop and so digitally store my videos. Is this standard for all modern videocameras or is there a special sort equipped for this?

Look at a Panasonic GS300. It is a 3 CCD model vs. most models in that price range which are single CCD's. The Panasonic uses miniDV tape for recording. The Panasonic is a good video camera in your price range, you should be able to find it cheaper that $600 depending where you buy it. You will always find video cameras with more features and better lenses, and it all depends what you want to pay.
The Panasonic is a good one to start with.

To see some reviews and evaluations use a google search such as "reviews Panasonic GS300", or such.

IMHO stay away from units that record either directly to DVD (small DVD in video camera) or that record to SD (usually compressed to MP4). This latter technology is catching up, but as yet does not have the quality of digital video to miniDV. Also, if you want to do serious editing and make nice videos of your mongering, not that many good video editors support mp4. All this will change over time, but that is the situation right now.

Second question from other poster, any video recorder that stores to miniDV, will attach and allow you to "capture" video to computer using "firewire" or the 1394 port (two names for the same thing). This is standard on all these types of video recorders. Camera that record directly to DVDs in the camera, usually only have a USB2 attachment.

As for digital cameras in your price range, I think you will get many suggestions. I have had good luck with Canons, Nikons, and Panasonics as far as good picture quality and ease of use. If you are new to this, ease of use will be of highest concern--i.e., you will probably never use many of the manual functions. If you are a serious photographer, you are in the wrong price range and wouldn't be asking for advice.
Also, make sure you touch and feel some of the different cameras. For example, I like the quality of photos on some of the new Nikon S series (the slim ones) (S7's, S8's, S9's), but, the shutter button is too damn small for my "fat" fingers, as are the Sony slim cameras, sometimes when I thried to press the shutter, I was not efficient and missed the shot.

Read some reviews, touch and feel some units, and start shooting movies with your ladies.

I have to tell they have been worked and cut a little bit, made with my old Nikon 5400 (now I use it also because the quality of lenses is rather good, and it’s really small, and with a reserve battery in the pocket you can easily make 250 pics.). It’ also easy to find one used.

The first two pics are some pink, before and after tongue treatment!
I did not take pictures of her after this because we started fucking like rabbits… If she simulates she might get an award for special effects!

You can easily see the erected clito and the swollen lips, I do not remember who, but they called her, on the Ukraine Photo forum: The Helicopter. :) :)

Others are photos in bed, and in my favourite positions, where you do not need to notice her which hole you will take… Just go over her, hold her wrists and push it in as hard as you can (that the reason I’m searching in Europe lubricant with some anaesthetic, just for the little hole…) :D

I hope I will be with this little fucking machine at the end of the month, so be prepared for a lot of pics.

Mind that for good photos you might have even for a little camare a proper flash wich can be oriented on the roof for inirect light.

Have Fun and send yours!

Sony K800i - 3.2 Megapixels, inbuilt flash, connection to net. Fairly robust too. Decent pictures have been obtained - much better than the usual phone camera quality on here ;)

Piper1, the usual problem with phone cameras ar not the megapixel, but lenses...

For around 299 € in EU (where you have epprox 20% of VAT, but cheaper in duty free when leving EU) you can easily buy a SONY T100 series camera.

Basically big as a normal phone (i.e. smaller than a Nokia 9300, but with same weight and thikness), with inbuiold flash, optical zoom, etc. And a real wide screen. It's heavy and robust and you can just slip it (even without any protection since lenses are closed) in the pocket. The quality of full res pics is good and you can cut off details (pink!).

I think I'll buy one my sel soon just as a spare to my (to big and expencive) camera equipment.

Is anyone using a medium or a large format film camera?

I'm using 8 megapixel with proper lens, and will soon go over to 10.2... Far enough... I do not mean pocket thiongs, real cameras! Like Canon or Nikon.

Frankly speaking we are not making a hard core magazine, we no not need any Hasslblad or so (digital with 22 or 33 Mega Pixel!!!) even with film...

Of course you have to use at maximum resolution always...

For "Pink" i use my Canon 50/1.4 and for Room pics my 10-22 EF-S all with a 580, or might be two 580 EX flashes... (ones used as Slave) 350-400 D body, far enough... in my opinion. If you still want to go to film in big format... Yes it's possible, but cost a lot of money, takes time and for what... Pussy posters in you office? :D :D

ITI tried making 20x30-inch prints with my EOS 10D and 50 f1.4 lens and they look good, they look great at a normal viewing distance but if you look close at them they look alright.

I bet that 20x24-inch prints from 4x5-inch large format camera would look great. Especially a close-up shots of her anus or pussy. Imagine all the detail of the dynamic range of the 4x5-inch film has to offer.

I used to have the Pentax 645 camera, Mamiya RB67 Pro-S, and Mamiya RZ67 Pro II. Pentax 645 was really good if you moved a lot. The 6x7cm Mamiyas were great for the studio/tripod settings. I never actually tried Hasselblad, and the 360-degree winding knob/lever was kinda silly for me.

For the large format cameras I had old Kodak metal 4x5 view camera, Sinar F2 4x5 view camera and the Wista 4x5 wooden field camera. My favorite one was the Wista 4x5 because it was compact, light and easy to use. Metal Kodak was alright, very straightforward. But I did not like the Sinar F2. I got it for a very good price from my friend and he included bunch of accessories and lens for it so I had to buy it. The camera takes a lot of tiome to learn to operate and it takes a lot of time to take a photo. I sold it 3 months aftre I got it.

Right now I am converting my Epson printer so I can use 6 black inks to make B/W prints only. If done right then I will be able to print 8.5x11-inch prints fast and easy and without chemicals.

as i told photography is a part of my work so...

if you make such prints you can easily use a normal slr camera 35 mm with a low speed film, (max 100 asa) if the lenses are good enough (that's usually the problem) you can get outstanding 30x40" prints, otherwise you have to go to bigger format, but they are bulky and heavy... that's the problem...

in my opinion a 8-10 megapixel file in jpeg format (of course shot not with pocket cameras, but with real ones) is far enoug for the needs we have, of course if you intend to make pussy posters :d they are not enough...

you could easily try a young teen in kiev, give her some photos and then she will fuck you to death for payment... but you have to carry some bags of equipment!

If you guys have an opportunity to pick up this little gem, then do so. It was reviewers' top favorite because of it's low light capabilities. Do a google search for f30 or f20 review and you'll see what I mean.

Quite reasonable since it's out of production - you might find one for about $150 or so.

If you upload pictures as per Jackson's/ISG instructions you will come to the page that at the top give you instructions on how to resize photos. You click on this link and come to a page that you scroll down to and aat near the bottom you will find links that will give you the way to "watermark" your pciture. these links are:
watermarker.com

Everybody who have some windows version have Microsoft Picture Manager, really nothing sophisticated and you learn to use it in 1-2 hours maximum... it will do not only resizing, but some optimizing I put here just four pics for a sample. If you put watermark use a slight one on all the pic or just a base or a side one, but usually i do not do so...

It's Inga, plugged and I want to show how horny she was... (we just came back from Arena where she was plugged!).

the first is just a resizing of a 8 mp photo with proper lens and flash (no direct light, on the ceiling).

the second is the same optimized

the third ia a detail

the fourth is even closer... showing how wet she is....

Note sure which border you are talking about, but I had a SD card stolen from my checked luggage. Thankfully I had downloaded everything onto my harddrive and deleted the files.

Of course if whomover stole the cad has memory recovery software, there will be a nice video of me fucking an 18-year old blonde circulating the web soon... :)

This is what I do. I bring at least two Cf cards for my camera. One has the hanky-panky pics. Then I swap out the other and take lots of pics of scenery, the family, the airplane, whatever. I keep that one in my camera when I return to the US, and the naughty one stashed deep in my carry on bag.

An interesting thing I discovered with my Sony HD camcorder. It lets you record video in both HD mode, and regular mode. However, the two formats are held separately in the (hard drive). If you are viewing HD video, you can see thumbnails of all the HD clips in the menu, but not the Standard Def videl (SD). If you switch to the standard format mode, its like the HD video is not not there. You would have to make a few menu choices to bring the HD back. Its not intuitive unless you know the camera. Again, in standard mode (SD) I record some "footage" of planes and scenery. But you would have to record a lot in SD to convince a suspicious agent I would think.

If you are paranoid, you need to upload it to a web site, delete your disc, and record over with benign footage. perhaps try google docs?

Really, US and UK customs got better things to look for. And they should be.

I am not looking at spending more than 100. 00. I thought about just getting one of those cheap cameras from Walgreens but then I thought when I went to get them developed would I have anything to worry about if my camera will filled with mostly nude/explicit pictures. Anyone have any advice? Sorry for all the questions just want all bases covered before I head off on my trip. Thanks

The other alternative is the somewhat less expensive but much smaller SB400 at around US$130. Seems it might be better for the 'hobby' pics.

the only thing you have to worry about with customs is having nude photo of **** girls. just don't go there.

memory cards are so cheap these days, buy extra and stash the naked ones in your wallet.

here's a site to help you pick a decent camera - http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare.asp
there's couple cameras in the low 100's and you might get them below $100 on the net.

you might consider www.pricegrabber.com and ebay.com for your shopping need. just make sure the seller has good rating. doesn't hurt to check with the bbb.org too.

ESYou should check if you can fire the SB600 from the D80 remotely (remote flash in wireless slave mode). With D 200 it works (Just put the flash anywhere and fire it with the built in flash. Also possible with several SB600s).

The SB600 is around 1400 HK$ in HK.

The SB600 is around 1400 HK$ in HK.I personally use two Canon 580 EX (not usually when nailing...) but I think that the most important is how to use the flash.

A) meter the light in the room it will not change at all... and use low times and wide open objetive (f 4 or 5.6 maximum) 1/40-50 of second is ok, if you have a stabilized Objective go dow to 1/20.

B) Use the right ASA (between 100 and 400 there are few differences in definition, but for taking pics to pigs you can use 800 as well)

C) Check that you are with your manual use mode camera approximately under exponed of 1,5/2 stops.

D) Use the flash for getting the rest of the liglt, usually non directly, but oriented on the cieleing or on a white or light surface.

So you will get good images, with correct exposure and no dark shadows at all (one flash is enough). And do not use the inbuild ones of the cameras!!!

I use Truecrypt (www.truecrypt.org) which is free encryption software which has the added advantage that you can have an encrypted file with two passwords - one for your innocuous work data, and the other for your private data. There is no way of proving that the file has two passwords so you can simply show that it has your confidential work files if asked and there is no way of proving that there is anything else hidden.

But I fairly prefer a proper reflex... with a proper flash (the most important) now I'm using a 50D and 580 flash usually with 17-85 lenses...
IT
Wow a 50D! That's heavy equipment! I use a Canon S95. It is a very good semi-professional machine which is still compact and fits in a trouser's pocket. It is pretty good for low light conditions.

Hi to all,
I am having a problem with my Sony Cybershot DSC-T1. Once I turn it on it brings me to the time set menu. Then I am unable to set the time. No matter what I press it is locked.
Any help? I have tried google/yahoo and so on, but nothing real information turn up. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks
It looks like some software bug. Maybe a factory settings reset ? Check the manual on how to do it.

Nice, a bit grainy and soft. Should consider changing the lens focal length for better depth of field or focus dead on the eyes ....

Isn't depth of field dependent on the diaphragm aperture and not of the focal length ?

It's dependent upon both. Actually, it's quite a complex issue, as it also relates to the distance from the camera. In general:

smaller aperture means greater depth of field

shorter focal length means greater depth of field

longer distance from subject means greater depth of field.

All three of these issues are interrelated as well, as altering one factor typically involves altering the others as well.

If you have an APS sensor format refelx (most ones) for shooting our friends the best way is usually this...

a) use a semi wide angle objective, possibly sabilized, I found the Canon 17-85 IS quite good. But other manufacturers have equivalent things.

b) for indoor use a 400 ASA sensivity (in a good sensor there is quite few difference between 100 and 400).

c) uplight all the lights of the room, use a directional flash towards the cieling (if you have a setable flash put it at -1/3)

d) use a 5,6 - 7,3 or even 8 and a time of 1/20 or 1/15 that should go and be good... with a IS lens... faster is good in any case...

e) of course you need a good subject too...

So I post here three "artistic photos" with no real artistic idea ;)

They are just resized no changing

Non professional style (but good result)
Miss U.:
A old photo Made with a Nikon Coolpix 5400 (not so professional)
but ISO 50 (with a so so camera it's better 100 ISO than 400) f 2.8, 1/5 sec, focal legnt 5.8 mm equivalent 28 mm original format 1944 x 2592 no flash.

Professional style, good result on ground it was night.
Former Porn Star Katya
Made with a Canon EOS 50D
ISO 400, f 5,6, 1/40 sec 28 mm (equivalent x 1,6 circa, portrait style as it is)
Flash roof oriented - 2/3
Original Format 4754 x 3168

Just my two cents...

Obviously for getting mementoes (this postings come from some postings in the Ukraine Kiev Thread.

Some UA Photos, mostly done in two apartments… in Kiev
As I wrote in Kiev section to members liking/disliking the fact of taking photos and posting them I like, and I think I’m a quite good amateur photographer… At the moment I have a semi professional Canon Equipment, of course I do not shoot pussies and facials only… :D

I must tell also that photographing has been for a long time one of my hobbies, unfortunately I’m not rich enough for owning my little harem of FSU threeholed teen blondinkas and reddish! :(

So, for the pleasure of all, and mine to, some nice Mementoes posted here in the Photo & Video Techniques, also because I think they are all good pics… apart one which is a Scan of a transparency I lost :(

Just My little contribution.

Captions

Mementoes UA 001 : a normal 20 y.o. university student met on mamba (flirt in UA)…

Mementoes UA 002: the student undergo a full anal training!

Mementoes UA 003: after two days the student became my enslaved maid so enslaved that as Fun And Sun writes she was FCWTS = Feeding Cum With Tea Spoon!

Mementoes UA 004: Mystery Tramp, a real Who*re in the good sense, always a little bit drunk, worked for agencies, stayed in River Palace, and on mamba of course… now in pension?

Mementoes UA 005: Mystery Tramp enslaved and pleased to serve (apart Anal, and sometimes I like unshaved too) she got all including Facial and a DTCI (Deep Throat Cum Injection) that is impossible not to swallow!

Mementoes UA 006: Miss U. a really heavy duty sex machine ready for restaurant, not a pro not a freebie, she just likes to fuck (front and rear) wonderful deep kissing but no BJ.

Mementoes UA 007: Miss U. naked at a wake up… at the time (approx) 22/180/70/1.5

Mementoes UA 008:Wonderful Ivol, Ira Voloshina(disappeared and married)just before going to the restaurant.

Mementoes UA 009: Ivol posing as the Queen of Hearts (the card she has in the hand)… probably the girl I have liked most (but the sex was 6.5 or so, a real pity!), her body for my taste was the absolute perfection: at the time 22/163/47/3 with an incredible waist less than 55, wonderful white freckled skin and huge rock hard tits. The best of all was the pink swollen juicy lips (those between the legs of course!) perfectly shaved and dripping nectar on my kitchen board! She was eating Ikra and I was licking Nectar, perfect combination!

Other UA mementoes… in Kiev

Mementoes UA 011: Katya (the freckled red one) and Nastya at the restaurant where we met… Katya is now married and I still meet Nastya (a real sex machine) both 24 y.o. (now)

Mementoes UA 012: 7.25 p.m. but they are already both drunk and start some kind of light lesbo the idea (not a secret for them) was an Italian cold dinner (meat, cheese, bread, other delicious things with a lot of wine) in the Jacuzzi! :p

Mementoes UA 013: This kiss made me so horny! So I started kissing Nastya while Katya with her new tongue (little ball) piercing made me really happy, she got the honor of the first thick load of cum, she disappointed me a little because she did not swallow, it a pity I did not tell her immediately to kiss Nastya!

UA Porn Star 001: between the fucks some fun photographing, I brought her work from 5 p.m. to the morning. Only later thanks to ISG I understood she was a former porn star. The body was soft, silky and superlative… a perfect body with 5 kg more in a 1 cm soft “cover” where your fingers go down, perfect for cinema, but only so so in bed too mechanic!

UA Porn Star 002: a variant in the bed. By the way her name was Katya and she was recognized by a tattoo

UA Porn Star 003: The simple reason why she could not be a porn star. Is she was so devastated with a night with me (I must say I liked, was horny, and took a Cialis and only a couple of beers..) think playing a day with Mr. Siffredi or Mr. Woodman! Morning sex (my favorite) was a no no no! :( wasted money!

Other RUS mementoes… in Moscow

RUS Mementoes 001: A old scan from a transparency… my room at Intourist round ‘92-3. Yulia, just 18, presented me by her Sister (nearly 20) I fuc*ed the evening before. Made them a good offer, so I changed my ticket and stayed with both nearly a week, when the older sister found a customer (at that time the standard was 100 USD/day unlimited sex all holes) she got it in his room, otherwise it was a trio, I was paying only the youngish, food, and hotel room (mine). It’s the only pic I have and she is still in my mind… simply wonderful in bed and a absolute 10 (for my taste). Still my best fucking week ever... 50/60 shots or so with two teen sisters... but I was 18 years younger too!

RUS Mementoes 002: She has a lot of “art names” but the real is Ludmilla, Luda for friends… redy for one of our intensive anal sessions… not a beauty at all, not tall, but slim waist and 107 cm of ass! And 156 tall! Perfect for all Anal games you can imagine, and I’ve done even more! She is Valentina’s big sister, and sometimes I do them both.

RUS Mementoes 003: When you wake up after fucking hardly a girl (Viagra at that time), going to dinner, fucking her even harder nearly all the night, and after all the possible devastation in all possible holes you find out that she has at 7.15 am this angel face… you are really happy and take her anally again before breakfast! :p PS she is my favourite queen Valentina!

RUS Mementoes 004: one of the first girls I sponsored in Moscow (after the closed the meat supermarket at the third floor of Intourist hotel) she thought it was just a tit fuck, I had sponsored her for a whole weekend and it was just Friday evening 11.30 p.m. so she got her eye shot… was really astonished and did not want more Facials, so she got a lot of CIM instead!

In my opinion still my best snap shot! Shocked Iriska (look for her in Russian Photo)

You can often solve computer problems by removing the power for 30 seconds or so.

Same with cameras. Take the battery out. An expensive camera usually has a small hidden extra battery to maintain its clock and settings while you change the big battery. Take it out, too, for at least 30 seconds. When you put both batteries back you will have to reset the clock.

If you have a small, cheap digital camera, it may not have a removable hidden small battery. If taking out its regular battery for 30 seconds does not solve your problem, try leaving the battery out for three weeks or more. That will discharge the hard-wired clock maintaining battery inside. See your manual!

I just bought a pocket camera and I am thinking about taking some monger shots.

What do you guys do when you have risque photos on the camera's memory card? Do you transfer the photos to a blank disk? I was thinking of getting mobile me from mac so I could dump them before I reach customs. Would they print out with the same quality as if I had them on my memory card?

Maybe this is overkill but what happens if customs turns on your camera and nude photos of several women show up?

You never know these days. The safest thing to do is to have online storage. Once you take the photos, upload them directly to the online storage, then format the sd card. (don't even save onto your laptop)

Keep at least some vacay px though. Totally empty card looks suspicious.

Also how common are these lab top / camera searches? I've heard of Thailand being a red flag for customs. Any other red flags?

Where you have a Wi-Fi (almost everywhere) I think in Thailand too, you con just send the mails to yourself. In an anonym mail or sosre them as recieved mails. It's quite simple.


But of course the suggestion is:
Make your Hard Core photos, send them and cancel your card... mind that the best way to cancel a card (you might have some spare cards with nothing is format them, make some pictures, format them again, make some pictures and format them again.

If you simply format the card Once every card rescue software from sundisk or another company will read the pics in any case... Could be good if you travel with a PC to upload old pics on it do you rewrite...

I like the stash coins offered by think geek. Thank you for that link. Although I am sure it would show up in the xray machine.

I have an ipad with a camera adapter which I've never used before. I believe once photos are loaded onto your ipad you cannot remove them unless you sync with your main computer. There is a delete option when viewing photos but it doesn't work. Some ipad forums have mentioned the same problem. So maybe I can wifi my photos to mobile me but I can not erase them from my ipad? I just love simple gifts!

But again. If they won't print nicely then sending them off to wifi storage isn't an option for me.

It seems like too much of a hassle but we shall see. A nude photo of anybody pro or non pro is pornography? I guess I need to look into the laws.

Does anyone think certain US airports are less of a hassle than others? It seems like miami is getting worse and worse with customs.

The files (photo's) you upload to your online storage are just like the originals. I use a 5mb picture size on my camera (Sony Cybershot) which gives an average picture size of 2mb. This is plenty big enough for an A4 print size of fantastic quality if you so desire. If you want smaller picture sizes then you could drop down to 1mb and still get great results. The only issue is with the larger file sizes they take longer to upload to your online space, which of course depends on your internet connection. The good thing about Carbonite is it backs up all changes on your computer every time you go online, working automatically in the background. It marks each file so backed up with a tiny green dot to shows its been backed up. If you change a file, or add a new one to your computer it marks it with a yellow dot to indicate it will be backed up next time you're online! So any file with a green dot can then be deleted as you will have a copy online!

On all my frequent travels the only place I have had my computer / camera checked was once in Holquin airport, Cuba. But better safe than sorry though! But I do know of people whose computers and cams have been checked in the middle east!

The most seen is Mystery Tramp's pussy after breakfast at hotel Mir, in Kiev, Ukraine, with swollen lips, and dripping. In the original in uploaded in 2004 seen by more than 14. 000 mongers! She was really aroused and I still remember the huge orgasm she had. Coolpix 5400 in April 2004.

What I feel is my best snapshot is stille the astonished face of Iriska, after a totally unexpected eye-shot, she simply tought at a BBBJ / CIM but she got an eye work. A Canon 350D at that time in Moscow March 2006. The best comment was "cumsniper". Iriska a sponsorette who did not want to give me her tight pink rear entance. So she got the eye shot! Seen by more than 10. 000 mongers!

May be not so watched, but one of my best sex tours! A laughing Valentina with red hair (instead of blonde) bound and ready to be rectalyzed fully dressed in my office... a wonderful way to do sex... seen only by 2.300 mongers, a pity! Down with the panies, up with the skirt and hope the room is sound proof!

Thank you for all your pics to enjoy.Ohhh sorry for the delay. I was simply not looking here.

It's usually easy to get a girl making pics. Just start photographing her fully dressed 95% will agree, and then go on. Of course you will loose a part on the way (two thirds or a little bit more) , but real pig girls has no problems in being photographed in this way. 10% accept naked pics and half. 5% or so, sexual intercourse or gyno style pics. Obviously nothing is for free. Some $$$ helps, but for some ones NO is NO. (they have a boyfriend for sure who will not be happy to see their spunked face on his mates PC!).

Some are willing and for free (like Katya and Nastya) some are not. It's very variable. There is no real rule. I tend to be very polite with girls so despite photos, pain, facials, they tend to get back (I usually take them more than once if possible and if they are good in bed) because well paid. I prefer to spend 100 USD more and get a horny 6/7 in bed than 100 less and getting a beauty where fucking is like getting laid with a fridge! It's biochemistry. Apart pics almost 20-25% of my girls gets really wet some (like Nastya & Katya) but few, got really screaming orgasms, of course they are amateurs not pros. As you saw in the pics the pussy is swollen and wet. Special effects? No pure pleasure! If you care of pleasing a girl too its easier to do anything you like including pics, CIM, COF, anal. Pussy portraits and spunk covered faces are my favorites. Excluding bound maids (ready for painful treatments!) of course.

By the way I'm not for quickies I usually rent them for a day or so.

Images (both the taken ones and the ones in your brain) are very important for sex, at least in my case, almost nothing.

If anyone is looking for quick recommendations as of March 2012, I'd go with the Olympus xz-1, Panasonic LX5 or the Canon s95. They both have great low light capabilities so the girls don't look so blurry back in the room.

Alternatively if you have a little bit more cash, look at used e-pl2 with the 20mm lens. Great combo, lots of room for future expansion.

Bought a Nikon D80 and need a strobe. I have looked at various sites and think the SB600 is the one I want. Most prices are around US$185.

The other alternative is the somewhat less expensive but much smaller SB400 at around US$130. Seems it might be better for the 'hobby' pics.

Any Nikon users out there using the SB600 or SB400 want to give me benefit of your experiences?

ESEaglestar,

I have both the SB400 and the SB800.

The pros of the SB400 are that its inexpensive, very compact and allows vertical bounce adjustment.

The pros of the SB800 are that it allows both vertical and horizontal bounce adjustment.

In practice, I found myself using the SB800 more often because you need to bounce flash horizontally, for side walls in landscape or ceiling in portrait mode.

If you are only going to buy one, I say go for the SB600 and you will have the only flash you will ever need.

Cheers

Try some optical cleaner and a lens cloth. IF you don't have this you can get it cheaply in a pharmacy or glasses store. This will work if it is outside the len otherwise you will need to dissemble the lens to get at the inside. You will need a specialist to do this.

As I'm sleeping different types of hotels and travelling oft with backpack it should be light, shock resistant and waterproof but give a reasonable picture and sound quality.

I started searching on amazon and after checking different cameras I noticed that all these spy cameras (All of them) are garbage. All reviews are fake, notice that the reviews are always from the same month or are from other item. How do you expect a pinhole camera to give any decent video quality?

Girls are aware that we want to tape them. I don't usually go hiding cameras but 3 months ago I put a smartphone recording video inside a hole, somehow when the girl came to the room, she looked at everything and my phone was in a hole, grabbed it and checked if it was recording.

The only way to do it is to be creative. I have made some hidden cameras that nobody will ever notice and have really good video quality.

Examples of what can be done:

Tools: Scissors, Glue, cutter, carboard, 35-50% windows tint, a smartphone with a really good video camera, etc.

-Wearable: Shopping bags, boxes, Backpacks, helmet, hat. For these. Make holes, not only 1 hole, make more than 3 or 4 and put camera inside.

-Hotel Room: Shopping bags, boxes of any kind, or any old item.

Just make sure to have plan-be. If someone opens the box for example: a police officer, they should not find the camera but something that makes them avoid looking at your concealed camera. And don't look suspicious, don't go with a box that looks like its full of drugs or anything.
