Dreamstime Just Increased Royalties by 10% to Help Contributors During COVID-19

On June 1st, Shutterstock unveiled a new royalty structure that infuriated photographers, sparked widespread criticism, and even inspired an online petition with over 7,500 signatures. On that same day, Dreamstime increased royalties by 10% to support their contributors during this difficult time.

The announcement was made via the company blog on May 29th (two days after the Shutterstock controversy broke), and to their credit, Dreamstime didn’t mention their competitor’s woes. But to quote Michael Scott, “the timing was nothing short of predominant.”

In that announcement, Dreamstime CEO Serban Enache announced multiple initiatives meant to support their contributor

Instagram Says You Need Permission to Embed Someone’s Public Photos

Instagram just released a bombshell statement about copyright infringement. In response to recent developments in a lawsuit between a pro photographer and Newsweek, the photo sharing site told Ars Technica that it does NOT grant a sub-license to anyone who uses their “embed” feature to share a public photo.

The statement is more important than you might think, as it reflects on two different lawsuits that have come to two different conclusions.

In April, Mashable won a lawsuit against photographer Stephanie Sinclair on this basis. After Sinclair refused to allow the website to share her photos, Mashable published

Interview with Stephan Schulz, Leica Camera on the SL2 and filmmaking

Comment on this article at the EOSHD Forum

Comment on the forum When I began shooting with my own Leica SL2 earlier this year, I found a lot to like about the high-spec mirrorless camera for filmmaking, and of course the SL2 is superb for photography. However, the battery power management has prevented shooting in 4K and 5K reliably, varying depending on the type of lenses used. After making Leica aware of this issue, Leica’s Head of Product Management, Professional Photo System and co-designer of the SL2 Stephan Schulz has been on my case and I have been on his!

GlareGuard 5.0 is a foldable plastic sunshade for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K from Ocean Video. It attaches to the camera via magnets and a metal frame (the same one used for Kinotehnik LCDVF BM5).

The 5″ screen of Blackmagic Design’s Pocket 4K and Pocket 6K cameras is fairly large, but not quite bright enough to be usable in sunny environments. On a side note, a brighter screen would drain the battery quicker and shorten the already very short battery life of the camera,

Fujifilm is Donating Instant Cameras to Hospitals Across Europe to Help Doctors Connect with Patients

Fujifilm Europe has announced a new initiative to “support healthcare workers with Instax.” The program involves donating Instax cameras and film to hospitals across the continent, in order to help doctors and nurses connect with patients without removing their Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

The threat of coronavirus infection makes it difficult for doctors to connect with the patients they are treating. When decked out in PPE, you might only see your caretaker’s eyes, which are themselves hidden behind the glare of goggles of a face shield. And while photography might not be able to do much to help treat
