    I've been asked to do a shoot for a billboard - does anyone have experience with that - what type of camera should I be using? Currently, I have only 20D's in my arsenal ... is this my excuse to move up to a better camera? :grin:

    And at what resolution are billboard images? Thanks!

    I am an Account Executive for a billboard company. PM your e-mail address and I will e-mail you a production spec sheet that will tell you how to set up your files.

    I currently have images up on 5 billboards in the market....all shot with my Rebel XT.......I dont think you need to get a new camera just yet.

    Marketing, Sales......I've owned and ran some small businesses and managed some large companies. I'm really creative thinking and a great problem solver.

    What I wish is that whoever designs these web sites would hire a grammar editor!! It looks so unprofessional to have blatant grammar errors all throughout the text!!

    GRRRRRRRR
