The Little Camera That Could - thank you Jeff Turner

Jeff TurnerI had to write this post to not only thank Jeff Turner for recommending such a great camera, but to show you hands on what this little camera is capable of.  Just in case some of you don't know, Jeff is the president of Real Estate Shows (a great tool to showcase your listings to your customers and on your websites - take a look at a show I did to test his product).

So here was my dilemma. I am always looking for ways to improve our marketing and I have a great camera (a Lumix, made by Panasonic), which takes unbelievable photos and has a great optical zoom, etc. etc. etc. and have the ability to purchase a wide angle lens for those smaller spaces or difficult angles.  I visited Jeff's website and saw he recommends a tiny little camera that has an ultra wide lens.  I could not believe my eyes when I saw the price ($220.00)!!  And then Jeff writes on how easy it is to use it.  The lens alone for my camera would cost over $400.

So I said, what is there to loose, I am going to trust Jeff's judgment and will buy the camera to test it out.  Take a look at these amazing shots -which I took quickly without prepping or fixing and before even reading the manual.

normal lens wide angle

In this kitchen shot I am standing in the same exact spot without even moving the camera.  The first shot is taken with the normal lens and the second with the wide angle - talk about a difference!!

normal lens wide angle lens

This is a narrow cabana bathroom.  Again I am standing in the same exact spot without moving the camera and look at the improvement of the second shot.

And lastly, I wanted to do an exterior shot to show you the endless possibilities when it comes to showcasing your properties.

What else can I say but WOW!! and THANK YOU, THANK YOU JEFF!  ...and ultimately THANK YOU ACTIVE RAIN (without Active rain, I would have never learned about Jeff, his services and this great camera).

I received the camera last night and first I had to share with you, now I am running out the door to go take more photographs of our listings.

How cool Ines!  Jay has a wide angle digital camera. The difference is incredible when I use my regular camera and he his wide angle to take the same shot.

Ines, why oh why oh why did you have to do that?  I am completely broke (many listings, no sales) and now I WANT that camera!!  Those pictures are amazing.  I can't believe the price though!  It's too good to pass up.  Thank goodness there's always mastercard.  I'm going to let my fingers do the shopping.  Thanks for this post.  I won't be feeling so grateful when I get the bill next month, but thanks anyway ::big smile::

Ravi - the price cannot be any better... and it's a 7.1 mega pixel too.

Monika - it is incredible, and you don't even have to go through the trouble of changing lenses.

Maggie - I do apologize, but it will be worth it - just think of all the money that will come rushing in because you were able to photograph those small bathrooms.

Ines what a cool new tool.  I love the second kitchen photo. I'm embarassed to say I have never used the wide angle feature on my camera and now you show me how embarassed I should be about that fact! Thanks for the motivation!

Bryant - the price does not reflect the quality of this camera - take my word.

Carole - you are welcome - go get that manual and figure it out because it's great!

OH!  And you can even take panoramic shots with this camera too!

Anyone happen to read the reviews on Amazon.com - thoughts?  Contributions?  Are the negatives overrated?
Posted by Christina Ethridge (The North Idaho Dream Team powered by SKE Realty Group) about 7 years ago
CNET.COM has great review site on all electronics. I miss the heck out of my Kodak, it took great photos and never did I have to sharpen them. Great pics! I wanted a better zoom and got my Cannon... Sigh.. I got better zoom, but not as good on the quality of the photos. Am going to step up to a SLR next, want manual focus.
Posted by Lysa Napolitano about 7 years ago

Thanks so much for sharing Rick & Ines.   How good is the flash with interior rooms that have poor lighting?  I purchased a Canon Rebel a couple of years ago and spent over $1,300 complete with wide angle lens and expensive add on flash.  My interior photos are very poor where there is low lighting even when I use my flash!

Please let me know,  George

Posted by George Tallabas, Idaho Real Estate (RE/MAX Advantage) about 7 years ago
Great difference.  I just purchased one - after weeks of my husband doing the research - the wide angle lens really does make a difference.  Thank's for sharing.

Ines - I got mine last week.  I couldn't be happier also.  Your photos came out great and I loved the real estate show.  You live in a beautiful community and you did a great job showcasing it.  Good luck with the little camera. 
Posted by Maureen Maureen about 7 years ago

Ines - BIG difference in those pictures, and I like the price, too, knowing it really is a good camera.  I have a good one now that I really like, but would love to be able to take wide-angle pics.  Thanks for this post!

I was on the fence because I just bought a higher end camera, but for $220 and free shipping on Amazon.com it wouldn't hurt to have a pocket camera.

I almost bought that camera when Angus blogged about it a couple months ago.  Thanks for the nudge - the price has really come down since then.  I'm ordering it tomorrow. 
Posted by Linda Davis (RE/MAX Realty Group) about 7 years ago
I bought this camera over Christmas after reading Jeff Turner's post.  I love the pictures that it takes.  The price is dropping too.  I thought I was getting a deal at $250.
Posted by Tim Maitski, The Agent Who Uses "Watermelon Tough" Sign Posts (Atlanta Communities Real Estate Brokerage) about 7 years ago

:) I'm glad you like it, Ines!

 

P.S.  For all those looking at the reviews on Amazon.com, I've never really trusted them. It's too easy for a competitor to trash a camera. They don't have a way to rate the trustworthiness of their reviews. 

Posted by Jeff Turner (RealSatisfied) about 7 years ago
It IS a great camera.  I have had this camera and am very happy with it.  It is amazing how little one has to spend to get some great pictures.  Good luck.
Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) about 7 years ago

Ardell - you always make me laugh...how do you do that?

Mariana - I agree and I was so pleasantly surprised!

Christina - I skimmed through the reviews and can tell you I bought it for the wide angle.  Our other camera is great but it's big and this one I figured would be a good compliment - I have not owned it long enough to comment about its battery life and the other comments made in the Amazon review.

Lysa - it's funny how you can buy a great camera and then you want more or something different - I think you are pretty clear about your needs.

George - the lighting in those rooms above is not that great and the flash was not bad at all - you can actually choose the shutter size for lighting as well.

Kay - since you have one of these, feel free to jump in to answer any of these questions, you probably know more about the camera than I do.

Thank you Maureen - glad that others can share in my excitement!

Ann - the way I look at it is that it is a good supplement for your other camera to take those difficult wide angle shots.

Ryan - you won't be disappointed!

I'm glad you think so Lola, I was hoping the pictures would REPRESENT!

Brian- although I love the Lumix, and it takes incredible sports photos, it's refreshing to have a pocket camera now as well.

Linda - I totally missed Angus' post - I'm going to look for it, thanks.

Tim - I did not realize it had dropped in price - I guess I got a deal too!  Jeff should be getting a cut from Kodak with all this publicity!

There you are Jeff!!   Are you kidding me?  I LOVE it!  Thanks again! - I'm glad you said that about the reviews because that very long one seems to come from a professional photographer trying to get the best device on the market from a point and shoot pocket camera. 

Posted by Rick & Ines - Miami Beach Real Estate (Majestic Properties) about 7 years ago
George - you are so right - not I need to find Angus' post and link it back here - I'll be right back.
Posted by Rick & Ines - Miami Beach Real Estate (Majestic Properties) about 7 years ago

Hey guys, great post illustrating the value of wider angle glass. The before and afters are really helpful.

To answer George's question:

Just some general info about the 300D (rebel) related to shooting indoors - it's a 1.6x crop camera...meaning any lens you use is essentially going to operate as if it's focal length is multiplied by 1.6. In other words your 50mm prime is going to become ~80mm, a 24mm becomes a effective ~38mm etc. This in itself is going to make it difficult to get the best results shooting interiors as even your wide angle lenses will be pushed out toward telephoto.

Regarding lighting. If you are using the onboard fill flash it will be very difficult to avoid blowing out a big portion of your image. Assuming you are using a speedlight (i.e. your expensive flash add on in your words) you'll have much better luck...but remember to fire your flash backwards! This is called bouncing the flash and will smooth out the lighting tremendously and provide much more evenly toned images. Look for bright white ceiling or wall to bounce against. This will keep the color temp. in line.

Your third option is more work but can yield much better results. Invest is a quality tripod and cable release. Meter your camera to available light (using no flash) and allow for a long exposure. Keep in mind that if you have high contrast areas (like a bright window or sky) you'll blow these out completely. Don't worry to much about that though as most consumer cameras can't handle that level of detail anyway...and certainly not a P&S that most agents use. Remember, pictures are one of your biggest marketing tools.

The final method is far superior to any previous but requires significant skill to execute properly (also keep in mind it's just not always necessary - you only really need it when you have really bright areas and dark areas). You probably want to avoid this one but I'm throwing it out there for the more adventurous of you. The process is HDR imaging and involves taking multiple exposures (on a tripod of course) and blending them together to get the highs and the lows exposed correctly, beyond what the camera is capable of in a single exposure. The results are are often astounding, but again...probably overkill for most folks. I've included some sample HDR images below. These are shots from the same room where there was tremendously bright light at the windows and not much making it into the room itself (the wow factor here is that the room looks 'normal', as the eye would perceive it).

Cheers, -B

R & I, I plan to put out several blogs to help folks better understand how to improve their images (such an underutilized area of marketing for most agents).

Anyway, I don't want to train folks up too well or I won't have any clients. ;)

All kidding aside, I'm happy to help. To anyone with questions...feel free to stop by and ask away. I'm happy to answer as time allows.

Those shots defnitely look better.  I still use my ~ 400$ canon digital camera and am pretty happy with the results.  Not sure how it would fare in competition with yours....
Posted by Kaushik Sirkar (Call Realty, Inc.) about 7 years ago

Wow, what a great post.  I figured I'd be spending some big bucks to get anythign wide angle at all.

I've been using my little Canon fro quite sometime, it look slike it might be time to trade it in.

Posted by Tara Lyons, Belleville Real Estate (Royal Lepage Proalliance) about 7 years ago

Ines,

I've had the Lumix for awhile now and the first wide angle street shot I took blew me away.  I was able to see the leaves on the trees from across the street.  When I posted the shot, a lot of people ran out and bought the camera.  The Leica lens is wonderful as is the image stabilization and the convertible aspect ratio.  I guess you can tell I love the camera.

Oops!  It must be late.  I misread your post.  I see you were touting the Kodak, but I must say I'd be hard put to find a better camera (and I have three) than the Lumix and it's tiny.

Most lighting issues can be corrected in Photoshop and you could use a photo stitching program to achieve these results, but I doubt it would be this easy!  Thanks, now I got one of these on my wishlist.

Posted by Chris Griffith, Bonita Springs Fl Real Estate (Downing-Frye Realty, Bonita Springs, FL) about 7 years ago

Morning Ines. I stopped by with coffe in hand to see what you were up to. :)   I am going to buy this camera for sure. Jeff convinced my with his photos when he first starting raving about it, but these side by side comparisons just put me over the edge. This will be so beneficial for appraisal reports, both for interior shots and rear photos (where I normally cant get the entire back of the house due to a small backyard).

 Thanks to Jeff and you, Ines, my reports are going to be better. :))   I guess AR and its members get another kudos. :)  Without it, I wouldn't have ever looked twice at this camera.

PS. Nick says hi! :)

Wow, that's an excellent price.  Think I may just want to pick one up.  I've never met a Kodak digital camera that I didn't love.  I'm now on my third one.  Last time I needed a camera, I think I brought 4 different brands home to try out before settling on another Kodak. 
Posted by Diane Bell, Hilton Head Real Estate, Bluffton (Charter 1 Real Estate, Hilton Head, Bluffton, SC) about 7 years ago

Bryce - a lot of us will take you up on that - there are small things we can do to improve our shots, but just remember to keep it simple, for those of us that are not into the technical aspects of photography.

Kaushik - I'm not sure either, but if you have a wide angle option, you should be OK.

Tara - you've heard it now from different people recommending the camera, it may not be a bad idea.

Geri - I love my Lumix also, and the zoom is fantastic, but I don't have a wide angle option.

Frank- That's what I call a broker! good for you.

Bill - you are right about photoshop - Craig Schiller is the king of photoshop here and has taught us a lot   - he not only stages properties, but his pictures as well.

Chris - and to think I stood in the same exact place and did not move the camera....not bad, uh?

Nicky Mississippi - I hope you brought me some CAFE as well - your reports are going to be stunning!   :)

Diane - it's a no brainer for that price, that's why I did it.

Posted by Rick & Ines - Miami Beach Real Estate (Majestic Properties) about 7 years ago

the pics look great.  I have a Lumix also but I am opting for a wide angle lens from Ebay.  $35 so I don't have to pay the $220+ unless I have to.  The pics make me want to buy one now but I will try the lens first.

Christine - a photo idiot???  LOL!  I don't think so....this one will work just fine.

Rick - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!  Talk about timing, now you can buy yourself a great birthday gift.

Don  - I always feel like I'm talking to the Godfather when I read your name - talk about powerful!  I really hope those helped, and take a look at Angus' shots too to get a better idea.

Posted by Rick & Ines - Miami Beach Real Estate (Majestic Properties) about 7 years ago

Rick and Ines,

I have the previous model. Can't say enough good about the camera...the software , on the other hand, is something else entirely. Advise everyone to make sure they download updates to the software..at least the updated versions are slightly better. 

How do we know which one of you is blogging???? Or, are you like my partner and I. We are so closely linked that we  are very often  thinking the same thoughts at the same time. We were born on a couple of days apart and it is really remarkable how often this happens.

Posted by James Frazier (James Frazier Personal Development Coach) about 7 years ago
James - Rick is my silent partner and husband (when it comes to blogging) - not silent at all when it comes to everything else.  It will be me doing the talking always (INES).  What software are you talking about, to download the photos?  I use different software to view and enhance phtos, and none of them are Kodak.  Thanks for the heads up, this may help some people.

There is a Kodak V570 and a v705. The only difference is the # of megapixels. You can buy the more expensive one but for Real Estate it isn't needed. Make sure NOT to buy the V610 series, it does NOT HAVE THE SAME WIDE ANGLE

I bought 5 of the v570 cameras for all of my agents, they are a MUST have. But damn, Amazon just dropped the price to $150!

$150 on Amazon Kodak Kodak V570
