Watch out for your gear at Sziget Festival too

Few days ago I wrote about the photo gear theft at Hungaroring photo centre last weekend and I wouldn’t want to come back to he theft topic again. However I have to write about this too. At Sziget Festival you should also watch out for your valuables. In the big crowd it is just as easy to loose something accidentally as it is possible to run into thieves and get things stolen.

Copyright and personal rights aspects are also interesting and important in this story the Hungarian State Opera House got into drawing photo theft accusations.
The Brazil resident Turkish face of their newest campaign  accuses them with unauthorised use of her image. The institute defends itself claiming they have the permission to use the photo from a stock site. The situation is however more complex and unclear.

Silence your camera!

It happens more and more often during photographing various events that someone is disturbed by the clicking sound of a DSLR camera and people ask photographers to turn off the sound. The photographer often just blinks not finding the words to reply. Clicking sound is not just an effect with a DSLR camera just like with mobile phones and compact cameras. It is an integral part of the function. Many photographers however has no clue about even DSLR cameras can be silenced. More than that it is very much advised in certain situations. If it is not possible than even more routine and knowledge is required to avoid disturbing others. And no, simple because you “have to” take photos doesn’t allow you to disturb others.
