Today I got a few copies of Saudi Aramco World with my publication – photo reportage on Polish Muslim Tatars for Katarzyna Jarecka’s article “Poland’s New Tatar Trail”.

In a few days my multimedia piece should be also available on their website. It was one of the best assignments in my life and for sure the best cooperation with the editor. I am very happy how the final version looks and I can not wait to share with you multimedia piece.

This assignment was very challenging for me. It was a long trip from Bucharest. I got quite a bit ill in the location… but I really like the result. I think it’s edited very well.

I was preparing to get some proper tripod since a long time. I don’t really need it with my photo assignments so I didn’t decide to get one until today. Assignments (in this case photo-video) are actually quite motivating 🙂

I got simple Manfrotto MKC3-H01 Black Trepied foto-video. It’s light and small. The person selling it was very against when I said it’s for Canon Mark II 5d.. but.. I am not really into spending too much money on it and I am not into using it a lot.. AND… I want small and light tripod…I do think it’s quite stable. I am not going to do super-long exposures on it, so i think it’s quite ok solution… time will show…

The other thing I got is microphone. I wanted to get the cheaper one (around 130-150 euro).. and here my adventures starts. I paid, I went to pick it up and I got info that it’s not available. My order was canceled.. but… yes, but.. my money didn’t come back to my account and I want not able to get anything else…good there was some nice lady in bank call center and she unlocked the money… and I got.. microphone twice as much expensive 😦

I hope it’s worth it’s price… Does anyone have experience with it?

I am getting ready for a photo/video assignment. I got ticket with a very short notice.. and I am ready to go :)…ok… almost ready…

The topic is very interesting.. I have never been in the place when I will travel in the following days.

People I will photograph and I contacted on the phone are extremely friendly… I really can not wait.

I need to get LED lamp for my Canon 5d Mark II for photo-video assignment. I am huge fan of natural light but there is possibility I will need to shoot indoor with small amount of light. I wish to be well prepared and get some LED lamp. What would you advice me to get? I really need help. I have no idea what I should look for.. any brands? any things I should be careful about?

I do not have much time, so I would need to get one of lamps available at f64 store. Link here f64.ro

Quick update. I contacted Fujifilm Polska on their FB page regarding the issue I have with my Fujifilm X100. It seems that they do not care at all.

I got the answer that I should contact service and get info how much will it cost. It’s not how I imagine customer service support. I sent email also to Romanian Fuji, and no reply.

Of course I didn’t get any contact to service from them… hmm… maybe they have no idea where it is located. Is it possible that their FB page is just to put adds … and have no connection with service and technical support? In this case, its fail of their marketing strategy.

I will continue to comment on Fujifilm Polska Facebook page.

Until now, I got a quite rude answers from their admin (example: “multiplying your questions, doesn’t multiply our answers”). I am deeply shocked how their customer service works.

If the problem with my camera is not something what is related with using it but with production process, they should take responsibility on themselves and replace my camera or fix it.

One things is sure, I will not live it like this, and until the case is not solved properly I will continue talking about it and writing about it.

I am not sure if they are fully aware how modern marketing looks like and how important is to treat their customers with respect.
