12 Replies and 12356 Views Video Depositions - Who owns the rights  12356  12 Started by  ChuckDeaton My question seems simple, 'Who owns the rights to the content of a video taped deposition' The situation is this, an adjuster, either as a fact witness or an expert witness, is called to give a deposition. As in the past the there is a court reporter present and the court reporter 'records' the words in verbal and written form and produces a written transcript. At the same time there is a videographer present with unexplained video equipment. The adjuster is asked to sit in front of a backgr...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
Not to cut short the thrilling discussion of roof chalk on another thread, but I am curious about what equipment some of you have bought over the years that has not turned out to be useful, whether the reason is because there was no occasion to use it or it just plain didn't work.&160; I'll start it off with two items. 1.&160; An electrical tester.&160; This item was inexpensive and worked very well.&160; However, over the course of a decade I think I used it three times.&160; Most of the ...

5 Replies and 7098 Views Cameras with wide angle lenses  7098  5 Started by  mxr618 I do a fair amount of interior work and use a Fuji Finepix that is allegedly water / shock / and dust proof. Problem: I'm tired of my interior shots not telling the story of the damage in overviews. The upshot is this is a great camera for exterior work. Blows for interior work. Does anybody have a recommendation for a point-and-shoot with a built in wide angle lens Or do you use an SLR with a wide angle lens attached That's pretty pricey for me (I'd go used) but these shots suck. Any...

Renfroe and I am going to trade my car in for something fuel efficient but large enough to carry a ladder.

0 Replies and 3877 Views Great ladder for a car  3877  0 Started by  LWalters I have been using a Telesteps 1800, it finally wore out after 4 years of constant use. It has allowed me to drive a car that gets 45mpg instead of a 15mpg pickup. Gas savings has literally paid for the cost of a new car. I replaced the Telesteps with an Xtend and Climb 765P. Costs $269 at any Sherwin-Williams plus get a $10 internet coupon. ONE REALLY BIG THING extra that I bought...a cheap seat cover from wal-mart. If you look how I placed it, it now protects the metal from roof grit, which I b...

2 Replies and 3979 Views Hail Damage on Atlas Pinnacle  3979  2 Started by  Randall Crow Several of the  roofs I have inspected both in Texas and North Carolina in the last 60 days in heavy hail damaged areas are showing damage appearing to be heat damage.  They look very similar to the hail damage I used to see on the old organic comp. shingles. I would like to hear any of your observations on this particular shingle.  You can tell Atlas Pinnacles by the very sharp line that they use as a 'shadow'  line.
