It’s been almost three years since I launched this site in its present form; the design as it is now is the same as it was then. Aesthetically I don’t mind it, but there are a lot of functions and features we could have that we don’t. A year ago I ran a poll about what should be in the next version, but I never ended up having the bandwidth to design it myself (I’m trying to make my first feature at the same time, after all), and so we’ll be working with a design firm to take the site to the next level. I’ve been preparing a design spec, and I have a good idea of what I want to see in the next iteration (and the next, and the next). However, above all else this site is here for you guys — so please let us know what you’d like to see in the relaunch and we will consider everything! More »

I launched the current version of NoFilmSchool in January of last year, which makes this design 20 months old. It was the best I could do while living out of a suitcase and devoting a maximum of one week to the photoshopping of this design (I didn’t want to spend any longer launching the site, given I had no guarantees anyone was actually going to read it). But NFS could be so much more! However, it’s less about what I want to see here and more about what you would like to see. So please take this quick poll so I can build a better, more helpful site for you all going forward! You can select multiple answers — all of these things are possibilities, but I’m trying to figure out which ones should be highest priority. Here’s the poll: More »

A couple days ago I posted a poll asking readers what they would prefer: more daily posts culled from around the web, or less posts focused on original content. As an experiment, I asked the same question here on the blog and on the DSLR Guide — but made them separate polls, to see if different visitors wanted different content. As it turns out, the opposite of what I expected was true. More »

You may have noticed the posting frequency increase here over the past two weeks; I’ve been posting 3-4 times a day instead of once. I didn’t announce beforehand that I was going to do it — I just wanted to experiment with writing more posts to see if traffic grew organically. I haven’t yet done a traffic analysis, but I’m more concerned with what you want as a valued visitor. So please take this quick poll:

I’ll post the results in a few days. Thanks to reader Andrew for writing in about this very issue.

Thank you to everyone who took the NoFilmSchool survey I posted a week ago — you’ve confirmed that we are indeed a bunch of multi-hyphenates. Only 13% of respondents had one answer to the question, “what do you do?” More »

Can we please just call them DSLRs?

05.11.10 @ 11:44AM Tags : , , ,

I have noticed a disturbing trend, and I am here to quash it! Ever since Digital Single-Lens Reflex cameras started showing up with a movie mode, people have felt the need to call them by a new name. The DSLR acronym was no longer descriptive enough, so shooters started adding on a “video,” “hybrid,” or “high definition” moniker to their camera to feel superior to the poor souls stuck with last year’s DSLR, which was limited to shooting sad, unmoving photos. Thus the acronyms VDSLR, HDSLR, and, confusingly enough, HDDSLR, have been bandied about far and wide. I’m here to stop this, or at least, give you the chance to vote on it once and for all! More »

I’d like to make NoFilmSchool into a better daily resource for creatives, so please take this quick survey so I know who you are and what you’re interested in!

For most of these questions, you can choose more than one answer (this site is for multi-hyphenates, after all). The survey is totally anonymous and you don’t have to answer every question. If I’ve left out something that you’re interested in, please let me know in the comments! More »

Most shooters don’t put together a camera package all from one source, but for anyone who shoots with a DSLR or video camera, which store have you bought the most equipment from?
