the most i had was going to the pits after qualis as dslr also cannot shoot when we're on duty
but at least we got up close action of the cars
*sarcastic mode ON*
F1 is soooooooo smart! How come no Singapore company is smart enough to copy the way Formula One forces all photographers to yield all copyright ownership of photographs taken during their company's events? Like IT Show, Comex, etc. It's such a brilliant money making idea for any business isn't it?
Like for example..can you imagine...Sentosa may one day decide to follow suit and say, "OK, all photos taken on the premises of Sentosa island automatically become the copyright property of Sentosa, even though you own the camera, all photos you take belong to us, and WE own the copyright. All photos that you take on Sentosa belong to us, NOT YOU!" And if you post them on the net without permission, we will reserve the right to sue you
How does that sound? Sounds like a great way to make money! I think all CS members who organise photoshoots should learn from F1! Tell all your paying photoshoot attendees that the all the photos that they have shot belong to you, the organiser!! And YOU, as the organiser, own ALL their copyright! Muahahahahaha! Awesome!
*sarcastic mode OFF*
I suggest mai hiu lan...and just let whatever you have posted stay. If you all cower, then you all are buey zai.
We were selected from 3000 applicants to become F1 marshals because we are special breed. We possess this quality called 'zai'. So, must be ZAI!! no need scared!
Just wanna back track abit...
just wondering if anybody know the total number of marshal casualties this round? seems like got quite a few... spectator fell on me fri night (BUT he didn't land on top of me), one got spectator really falling onto her on sat ... anybody noe who that poor soul is? and got another ger foot kena run over by car...wad is this wor...
and, how come all the casualties are gals?
Hi ravenblackhart bro , you are not the only person wondering what is the total number of marshal casualties this round, I'm sure all the F1 marshals are concerned about our fellow marshals in other sectors. That's why Race Committee must do the right thing and be transparent about this matter and show accountability through the volunteer's newsletter. If they simply keep quiet and hope that the less people know about this the better, then they are being sneaky about it and I will lose all my respect for SingaporeGP.
The marshal who got the foot run over by the F1 car, I saw.
Those marshals who were injured by falling spectators or other misc mishaps while on duty may have suffered injury and may have a valid case to claim insurance from SingaporeGP. I hope they know their rights and not be blur blur and just keep quiet and be a goondu.
Actually, to be brutally honest, our F1 job is actually chor kang. I bet alot of the volunteers have never worked like this before in their entire lives(except me, I work as rubbish dump cleaner before, I'm not joking), seriously,......the way we all sign on at the mustering area and eating our lunches like a Bangala construction worker is an example, not to mention the extremely humid and unforgiving working conditions under the elements. The heatstroke inducing overalls is another thing that many of the people used to working in air con cannot get used to. So in this light, to see that the majority of marshal casualties are females, is a foregone conclusion.
seankyh bro said it best....
I just found out something even TODAY newspaper also bo hiu lan FOM's claim to copyright of all photos taken by F1 marshals If you look carefully at the photo credits of the following news report, TODAY gave full photo credits to the volunteer F1 marshal
The best part is that this volunteer F1 Marshal's their sports reporter, what a scoop for TODAY!!

bravo!!! i think photos of Marshals on duty or just posing for the camera shouldn't come under the property of FOM. if the FOM wants to use photos of Marshals for their promotions, then they have to buy the pictures from whoever shot them.
as for the pictures of the cars, i still think it's ok to shoot and share with friends for viewing purposes... but not for commercial purposes.
btw... bro kiasi, which sector were you in and what position?
Mythbusters - the bigger the explosion, the better it is.
Any CS member in this photo? I found on random google search....
