comment Commercial use of photos of toys?
Would you need Ford's permission to sell a photo of a beat up old Ford pickup truck (or even a new one)? Do you need Nike's permission to sell a photo of an old Nike sneaker?

comment What are _rods_ / _rails_ for?
Although a focusing rail can resemble the type of video rail system that OP is asking about (two rails and a mount for the camera), it's clearly not the same thing (video rail system is significantly larger and is used to mount other equipment rather than to move the camera). This is not a duplicate.

comment What are _rods_ / _rails_ for?
A little further into cameradojo's first paragraph: For photographers, this is a clunky thing and not something you would want to ever mount your camera on. I don't think still photographers are part of the "target audience" for this type of rig.

I suppose it could happen, but the fact that three relatively high rep users here had no idea what you were talking about is a good indication that if it ever happens, it's pretty unusual. Hard to see what the point of building a rig "in different directions" would be, but there's hardware available to let you build almost any way you want.

That's just an image I found on this page, not one I took myself. I'm sorry if that wasn't clear. I've added a link to the source page in the text above. I'll also add some advice for getting the result you want.

comment What are my rights as a press photographer?
+1 Policies obviously vary depending on the act and the venue, but this answer pretty much nails it: the issue isn't so much what you can do with photos you take, but whether you're allowed to take any photos at all. (Also: It seems like poor form to unaccept a 2.5-year old answer. If there are new, more useful answers in response to the bounty, they'll be rewarded with the bounty.)

comment Confused between 2 “pro” point & shoot cameras
"pro" and "point and shoot" also don't go together.

comment Can you use EOS Utility to Manual Focus whilst remote shooting movies?
Those arrow buttons are unfortunate. A slider that lets you change focus as quickly or slowly as you like would be more like a real focus ring and much easier to control.
