Anyone here actually going? I would love to go but unfortunatly my parents work that day, and my dad won't be getting out early enough to take me. The traffic from RI to there would be pretty heavy at that time.

I just signed up mainly for the clinic. Shoot, I thought that we were going to play Greg Hastings 1v1 in real, not the game (heck I do not even have a PS2 anymore). Meh, at least it will be fun.

Lucky. I'd love to go, but unfortunatly I just bought a new marker, so I'm broke, and my parents don't support me in paintball at all, so I'm stuck with hopes and dreams... lol.

I'm on one. Granted, I have my hands at a funny angle, and I think it's about 3 seconds before I got lit up...

Oh well, there goes $4.75...

I've got to say, I'm not really impressed. I bought the picture of myself for $4.75. It was advertised as a 1 megapixel image. When I downloaded it, I got a 545x817 pixel image. That's not even half of a megapixel. I really don't appreciate being lied to like that.

According to the meta data on the image, it was shot with a Canon EOS 20D. That's an 8.2 megapixel camera. For $5, it would have been nice to be able to get the original, full resolution shot. It said I was getting the "Low-Res" version, but there wasn't even an option to get a higher res image. I assume that a higher resolution is available a since they offer to sell 24"x36" prints, and a 545x817 image isn't going to make a decent 24"x36" print. Maybe a 4"x6" print, but not 24"x36".

I just looked again. I'm glad I bought last night before the price changed to $6.

Also, the only forms I signed was the standard BPS waiver and the NEPL combine registration form. Neither of those documents make any reference to photography. I'm not a lawyer or expert on copyright law, but I believe that without a signed "model release" or similiar, you are on rather shakey ground to be selling the images. I know that journalists can get away with taking photos in a "public place" without copyright fears, but when you charge $95 to get access to something, and it definately was very limited access, I don't think it qualifies as a public place.

I'm not really planning to pursue any sort of legal action about this, but I'm definately not a happy customer.

Oh, by the way, my father sells digital cameras and equipment at Microcenter in Cambridge. He says "nice camera".

I'm sorry to hear that you are not satisfied. I have no idea why the 1 meg image was so small and I will look into it for you. I do know that smugmug- my photo hosting service had some server problems last night and it seems that some of my pricing structure went kafouie. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I'll go check if anything is corrupted.
If you could send me your email address either in a PM or an email to yoyoboy@gmail.com I will get you a full res version of your photo.
I am sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused you.

Hi, I'm from SmugMug (we host yoyoboy's photos) and I must apologize for the mistake! I don't yet know why you got that small an image, but earlier this evening I sent you a new file by email, full 1Megapixe. Sorry for the hassle and I hope you won't take it out on the photographer, it wasn't his fault at all

Holler to us at our help desk if you have any questions!

All the best,

Andy
