That was good although unreal.
The judge didn't even saw the blown up photos(22x32) from the client, and he can make the final judgement?
Don't forget that we are looking at the videos in youtube resolution. Assuming that the pictures didn't hold up in 8x10, it probably wouldn't hold up in larger enlargements. Also, there were no photos of the ceremony. If you were getting married, how pissed would you be?
Also, I think the judge was especially harsh this time because of the term 'professional'. Consumers are not expected to have knowledge in jobs that are considered professional. For example, doctors, lawyers, and accountants. When you pay for a professional service, there are 'reasonable expectations'. When the expectations are not met, you might have a case of misrepresentation. I believe this applies to any job that average consumers are not expected to have in depth knowledge of, including car mechanics, etc. 'Reasonable expectations' change depending on the client of course. For example if the client is a used car salesman with 10+ years of experience suing a car mechanic for misrepresentation, the case would probably not be as strong.
Disclaimer: I wrote this from memory since I sold my business law text book ages ago but the gist of it should be correct
but u gotta admit that the photographer and her partner deserved the ruling based on how they tried so hard to defend themselves..
and not knowing how fast their lens was? OMG. total nOObs.
i support the judge all the way! it was priceless to see their ugly faces get slammed over and over again. and i cant believe they did 100 odd weddings according to the video.
as for me (not to be sexist just speaking the truth), i would hire a male photog for my wedding
Thanks for the link.
in an even worse way:
I am impressed with the photographer's general stand and her answer "I dunno"..
thanks for the link
The whole problem is in Singapore it's quite the reverse and this will if anything encourage the situation rather than dampen it.
I have 1 Series (donch worry my beemer is 7 series I is not teh nub), I have f0.01 lens, I have 2.8-700 lens, so zomg that means in the eyes of the law and everyone else I must be teh pr0z.
You know what you have in such technical depth. I'd bet you would know what your equipment can do and cannot do. I don't even remember my lens' dimension!
Equipment plays part, but the photog will ultimately be the critical factor of the outcome... well unless the photog suddenly go senile and decided to pull a trick beyond his eq. capability.

A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
Haahahaa... dont get it wrong...as for me (not to be sexist just speaking the truth), i would hire a male photog for my wedding
I have the same thought too before, but later changed it after I realized something,
that is, the female photographer is as good as male photographer, but they are just less "gearheads" than the male one.
I have a chance to see a lot (I mean a LOT...) of wedding pictures from a lot of wedding photographer since Im working in a pro lab cater to wedding photographer, and pics from female and male photographers are equally good.
In my company's forum, when a male photographer is buying/selling, stuff, they always have a detailed information to the T about the equipment (Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR ZL Di LD Aspherical (IF) for Canon Digital SLR Cameras), while the female photographer usually just saying Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8. Moreover, I also found out some mistake like: FS: Canon 85 1.8 L lens for US$300 or sometimes just FS: Canon DSLR.
Of course no big deal, Im just saying...
