comment Are there digital cameras with a RGBW sensor?
The most unusual sensor arrangement I can recall was the Foveon X3 Sensor which had the RGB sensors stacked on top of each other so that each point on the sensor face detected all three colours. Very appealing idea, and it was used in several camera bodies, but I don't believe it gained much ground.

comment Is there a well-known way to store a taxonomy hierarchy in XMP, IPTC or EXIF?
The only way to have a hierarchy structure managed centrally would be to use a database system which maintains the structures in a single table, so that the hierarchy structure could be reorganised with ease. But this is not how metadata in image files works, because each image file stands alone. If you change the way you want the hierarchy structured, you have to update the metadata in every image file one after another. Using XMP sidecar files will reduce the time it takes to make such updates, but you then run the risk of separating the image file from its metadata file.

comment How to control both aperture and shutter speed for casual portraits
Useful observations, and thank you for shaming me by pointing out how easily I could have tested this for myself.

comment What steps should I take if my photo is used without permission?
On the subject of photo copyright, I suggest everyone here read this FAQ about the UK copyright landgrab which should alarm anyone who posts or intends to post any work online. Even in countries other than the UK. I personally think the UK IPO has lost its mind, and I'm hoping public pressure reverses this trend.
