Use a camera with wifi, so you don't have to worry about the distance of usb limits. You might look at the Sony ICLC QX1. They have not sold well, so they are available cheaper. I have one. It is essentially an alpha 5000 with no controls or screen. It is meant to be controlled remotely. I've not tried with open-source USB/wifi controlling software, but ...

Nice idea. In a tour of Dr. Phil Mason's lair, he we see cameras indoors at windows, covered with a box and black cloth. This Video includes three time-lapse views in different directions. The weatherproofing enclosure is the house! Since the point is to show the analemma which has the sun move left and right, you do want to expose at 24 hour intervals, ...

For your purpose — product photography for a webshop — I don't think you actually need very high color accuracy, as long as it's within a reasonable human tolerance. And, since you control the lighting (right?), for that, all you really need is consistency — something that will let you set a white balance manually, or shoot in RAW. Set up a color profile, ...

This only sets the ITPC copyright line, assumes the EXIF date information is correct, and has to be done per individual year, but it works for me. In the Library module, if your photos are filed by date, select the year's folder in the Folders pane. Alternatively, if your photos are not filed by date, select your entire Library, apply the Metadata filter, ...

The Canon 1D X has a shutter durability rating of 400,000 shots. You just said "thousands of pictures per day". You could likely get 400,000 shots out of the body, and potentially even more. But once that threshold is passed and failure occurs, you of course don't have to throw away the camera. You might be able to get 100 days out of a 1D X shooting 3-4k ...

Yes, the minilab scanners do (such as Fuji Frontier and Noritsu). An older one with acceptable resolution and speed can be had for around 3k. There are online vendors specialized in recycling and reselling these machines (see here). I haven't heard of any consumer level scanner with this feature. But even if there is, it doesn't solve much of a problem for ...

As others have pointed out, the questions of what is auto mode really and how do you define a professional photographer as opposed to a amateur has been pretty well covered. The question that wasn't asked and I feel should have been. "Why do photographers that have mastered the craft of photography use auto modes?" That might have been a more accurate ...
