Can an experienced photographer walking down the street with no equipment visualize exactly what settings would work with a particular lens/body to capture a scene at that moment in time?
Similarly could they blindly (without aid of equipment) mentally "snap" photos while vocally stating the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focal length of the shot? How fast can they do this?
If this is possible, personal experiences or professionals who write about this capability would be appreciated.
Similar question just focusing in on sensor size here: How can I visualize or simulate the effect of different focal lengths?
