comment Question about legal usage of stock and photos with attribution
@PhilipKendall True. But I think that a large portion of the things that are in the Public Domain are so because the creator or owner wants everyone to be able to use them freely, not necessarily without attribution (as you said, these will use creative commons). Another thing is that it is best to attribute anyway if there is any doubt about whether it is required or not (something that creative commons helps with).

@philipkendall even if they do not require attribution you should still attribute them if possible to acknowledge the creator

comment How long until a point-and-shoot becomes obsolete?
The Sony RX1 is a specialist camera and probably shouldn't be classed in the same league as what most people would think of when someone says point-and-shoot. Most consumers probably (and I am indulging my own low view of human kind (myself included)) wouldn't know how to use a fixed focal length effectively.

comment Camera on boat worth the risk?
Note, some water tight pouches are rated to be used underwater for extended periods (albeit at very shallow depths (i.e. just on the surface, no deeper)), such as [this brand](www.dicapac.com/), which works well with a little care.

comment Why doesn't an f/1.8 lens result in a lower ISO than an f/2.8 lens?
Why will increasing the amount of light passing through the Lens (f/2.8 to f/1.8) will you want to increase the sensitivity of the sensor (ISO 3200 to ISO 6400)? Increasing the size of the aperture will decrease the ISO (assuming a constant shutter speed).
