Area 52 (Jamey)

– The Black Book – which is now a Grey Binder-is maintained by the Nevada Gaming Commission for those individuals with a “notorious or unsavory reputation”.  If you make it in and even step foot in a casino it results in 1 year in jail and the loss of the casinos license for allowing it.  It is virtually impossible to get your name removed.  Even Frank Sinatra had to forfeit his gaming license for his northern Nevada casino when he allowed mob boss Sam Giancana in the hotel.  The book now holds approximately 66 names…mostly card and slot cheats.

– Outsourcing of key personnel – As mentioned above, Concierge are one key area where major hotels are deciding to seek outsourced personnel.  It all began about 6-7 years ago when concierge staff made mention of unionizing.  This of course went over like a lead balloon to the money men and thus outsourcing.  What it means is that informational personnel like concierge – who can an integral part of a Las Vegas visit – are now being replaced by privatized companies whose sole purpose is to sell show tickets – commissions being had from all sides.

SLR v SLT

Posted: February 17, 2012 in Tech Rant
Tags: , , , , , ,

Are we shooting with the best gear available? That’s a question every professional has asked themselves. The debate between which camera technology is the best continues with SLR vs. SLT.

Digital single-lens reflex cameras (digital SLR or DSLR) are digital cameras that use a mechanical mirror system and pentaprism to direct light from the lens to an optical viewfinder on the back of the camera. -Wikipedia.com

Single-Lens Translucent (SLT) is a Sony brand name for cameras which have a mirror, but – unlike the one in DSLRs – it does not move, and it is semi-transparent, allowing the majority of the light to pass through to the sensor whilst reflecting a portion of it onto a phase-detection autofocus  sensor, this way allowing full time phase detection auto focus. -Wikipedia.com

Since there is no mirror or mechanical parts flipping one, the SLT camera will give you the fastest stills FPS and fastest video auto-focus. Due to the electronic viewfinder, you lose a third of the light entering the camera, therefore will get slighty lower ISO performance. These camera technologies are a close call in which one is more practical, but the victor goes to the SLT for any fast paced photography or video capture, due to the advantage of less mechanical parts speeding up the focusing process.

Sorry, we just had to let that out.  If you saw the article from photo district news last week you would understand.  Basically, it is a review of several court cases involving major TV networks accused of copyright infringement.  The same networks that get angry when you download and watch their bodies of work without paying for it, seem to think it is acceptable to steal photographers’ work and use to generate a profit.  Although we do use other photographers’ images from time to time on our blog and as photographers that own a studio we are in business to make a living, we only use them to showcase other artists and hope to generate further interest in their work.  We would NEVER try to profit from other artists work.

The Great news?  If they have the money to peruse a judgement in federal court, the photographers are winning.  The bad news is many photographers don’t bother to register all of their images with the U.S. Copyright Office.  When you register your images with the U.S. Copyright Office, it becomes easier to persue settlments with infringers without the legal battle.

Stop Hypocritical Copyright Violating A-Holes; register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office.
