      I have no problems with folks posting about stuff they’re selling (like Jay/Aspyrider with his stock footage).

      It just really irks me when someone joins the list and posts their first post touting their wares like they are a customer (as was pointed out to me in a prior post, a process called “Astroturfing”).

      If you want to use this list for advertising fine, just stop the false pretenses – I, for one, don’t bother with these morons.

      Jay, on the other hand, is a talented videographer and video producer and his stuff is worth a look if you’re in the market for stock video.

      Just MHO.

      Hello Zee – I’m sorry if I pegged you incorrectly – There has been some “Astroturfing” going on here lately and it really does irk me (I consider it to be fraud actually).

      If you are a legit member looking for info or to share info (what these forums are for) then I heartily apologize. Instead, let me use this message to say welcome to the forums.

      OK – Based on zee’s claims I went and took a look at the site – The one thing that stands out more than anything else is the high prices.

      For the price of one their less than three minute clips ($1400), you could buy all of Aspyriders stuff PLUS all three of the Digital Juice VideoTraxx volumes (over 100 DVD’s with nine thousand clips).

      They may be legit but at those prices (cheap clips are about $200 – $300 for 11 seconds) they won’t be getting any of my money.

      YEa that is what i thought to at first. but if you look at the other catagories. they seem to be cheap. 19sec for 295. 10sec for 195.And if you buy a 3 vids you 15% off.

      Let me know what you think

      Hi zee –

      My problem is that I will not spend thousands of dollars for less than an hours worth of clips.

      Consider that if you took the highest priced dozen of their clips it would cost you (without discount) almost ten thousand dollars ($9.740) for less than fifteen minutes of video.

      For that price, I could purchase a Sony V1U and fly to Costa Rica for a couple of days of filming – When I was done, I’d have hours worth of usable footage and a the V1U would be mine to boot! All at HD quality.

      I know stock footage can be expensive, but these prices are out of line from what I can see.

      Compare your place to someone like Artbeats (professional stock footage firm) – I can get the Artbeats Africa Scenics HD Collection for $1100 – This contains 28 clips totalling about nine minutes (average is just under 19 seconds each).

      Just seems to me that Costa Rican footage is not worth so much more than that.

      Just MHO.

      EDIT – Changed the Z1U to V1U as you wanted 1080p, not 1080i.
