Passing of a dear man

posted on 9th of may, 2012

So not at all stock related but I wanted to share with the DT community and fellow friends on here the passing of a great man.


John was 88 when he died on Saturday 5th May 2012 and will be very much missed by all that knew him.

I'm not one for being sad but more want to celebrate his life and knowing him.

Super Friday credit sales

posted on 11th of may, 2012

I'll make this my shortest blog ever.
I really just wanted to commemorate that in just over 24 hours I hit a new PB of 140 credits worth of sales plus 7 sub sales bumping those images up the level system. If only every day was like this it would be a Dreamstime :-)

Making a very bad week just a bit brighter :-)

Canon 5DMKII - ISO 50

posted on 16th of may, 2012

So today I feel incredibly stupid.

Whilst looking at some stunning long exposure black and white shots in a UK photography competition I see something that catches my eye. In the info for one particular shot it shows the photog has a Canon 5D MKII ( which I have had for a year or so now ) and has taken a shot at ISO 50. First thought was this must be a mistake, I have never heard of this capability, after a quick Google search I see it's a function/ability I have over looked.

In the off chance that I'm not the only 5DMKII owner that does not know about this feature I thought I would write this brief article.

Why would you need ISO 50? Well recently I bought a range of ND filters to help reduce light intake thus enabling longer exposures in daylight to generate motion...

50 is simulated so depending on what you are photographing/how big it will be printed/displayed it may actually harm the image. I talked with a camera engineer once and he said to stay with the 100, 200, 400, 800, etc intervals because the gain is incremented for each of those. Non standard intervals, the camera over exposes then adjusts down (which you can do in post with full control instead).

It's a great camera, you will be very happy with one :-)
