Small, independent film-makers are forced to pay the same fees as large production studios to film commercially on public lands.
Still Photographers are exempted from the fees, but with advancements in technology (Especially DSLR's), videographers and film makers are now using similar or identical equipment with no more impact than a still photographer. The fee is now necessitated at the flip of a switch.
A new trend is coming back involving vintage cameras and the company would make more profit if they started to sell instant film again.
The fashion industry also uses Polaroid instant film when booking models. Instant film would also be popular for analog photography.
Recent events have prompted the inquisition into a surveillance system for Riverside transportation vehicles. These cameras will give non-objective personnel the ability to observe every action of every person in extreme detail while using a Riverside vehicle.
While it is being argued that the installation of this technology is for the benefit and well-being of Riverside employees and consumers, the fact still remains that equal or greater harm can also manifest. The human condition has sometimes been agreed to include the idea that: humans make and learn from their mistakes on a consistent basis . With this in mind, it would be an frivolous to place the actions of anyone under video scrutiny in every situation.
Therefore, while the best intentions may be advocated by adding video recording devices to a vehicle, it simply isn't plausible to expect that anyone; be they driver, monitor or consumer will meet everyone's expectations all the time. Trusting in each other is the time-tested and [arguably the] best way to resolve conflict or dissent in any environment. Dissecting every action in every situation and after-the-fact is not a reliable means of security for anyone.
Some other reasons why surveillance cameras should NOT be installed include (but are not limited to): privacy, cost, mistrust, misinterpretations, increased stress, employee / employer dissent, peer contention and misconduct.
Chris Ward has campaigned for a camera in this location for the past four years. Since then there have been a spate of attacks.
A camera in the underpass would not only have caught attackers committing these atrocious acts, the very presence of one would have prevented them doing so in the first place.
See this as a petition for change, particularly as the new Manor Park campus means students need to use this underpass more than ever.
We will fight this corner for the students of the University of Surrey as your local representatives, as well as for the residents of Guildford who regularly use that underpass.
We need the ruling group on the council to know the students mean business. Please invite all your friends and help spread the word.
This is a NON-PARTISAN campaign. We are simply running it as your local Councillors. We are more than happy to work with anyone to get this CCTV in the underpass, regardless of political persuasion.
Cllr Chris Ward, Cllr Steve Freeman and Cllr Tony Philips
we were told that a large majority of residents were in favor, but surely the opinions of the people living in direct viewing of the camera should have more impact, than those whose properties are unaffected.
Were these people also told it would devalue their property?
The area the CCTV is being installed is NOT a known trouble spot, and local residents would be able to tell you where a camera would be most useful.
This camera is an invasion of our privacy, and although it is illegal for cameras to be filming our property-it does happen.
There is often a mobile police camera unit situated at the traffic lights at the entrance to Heron Drive on Parlaunt Road, Langley, Slough.
This camera parks but no speed camera warning signs are displayed on Parlaunt Road.
Kaja could take better pictures if she had a better camera. Having seen some of her pictures, I believe the Australian government should get behind this creative genius.
DeLoach Towing Co., Inc. towed my car from a non-designated towing area. Once I realized my car had been towed, I contacted an employee at DeLoach and was told that the fee was $80 and that we could get pictures of the car from a printer at DeLoach Towing. When we arrived at DeLoach at approximately 10:00 pm, the employee stated that the pictures from the digital camera could only be printed from a computer which was in the owner's locked office. We told him to call the owner and then said that the owner was on his way. We waited for 50 minutes after the employee called the owner and then discovered the owner was not on his way. At this time (11:00), we were told we could not get a copy of the pictures. The price apparently increases to $105 after 11:00. While I was inside ready to pay with a police officer, my father in-law took the car because he thought we were paying. DeLoach said he was stealing the car and that we could not pay (I own the car and was driving the car the night of the incident). The police brought my father in law back from a gas station a couple blocks down the street to DeLoach and DeLoach towed my car back again. Miraculously the owner was able to make it down the street to the gas station from accross town, but could not go two blocks farther to his Company to print the pictures. We were charged $210 by the end of the night. DeLoach charged us for two tows.
The Police said they should only charge us for one incident which they believed should not have occurred in the first place by viewing the pictures on the digital camera. From our conversation with the police, the police get calls from DeLoach more than any other tow company in Tallahassee for unfair business practices. Not only is this company practicing unfair business acts, but they are wasting the Tallahassee Police Dapartments valuable time. The Police arrived around 11:00 pm and we finally left DeLoach (with $210 less) after 1:00 am.
Ritz Camera Centers is neglecting the needs of its paying customers.
