comment How can I get sharp manual focus despite poor eyesight?
@Leonidas - I have -7.5 :( And worst part is, when my glasses move closer or farther away from my eye because of pressure of the camera when looking through the viewfinder, the sharpness with which I see changes :(

comment How can I resize Raw images and store them back in the original format?
Actually, RAW files aren't images but more something like data files. They contain the raw and unprocessed output of the sensor in your camera.

comment Does an ultra-wide lens perform well in landscape photography?
@ElendilTheTall - It's not always possible to take more distance and when it is possible, it doesn't necessarily give the same effect as using a wider angle lens. I agree that you should improve your skills, but sometimes you need more than skills.

comment What exactly determines depth of field?
Can't you sum that all up in two factors: the aperture and the size of the subject on the sensor?

comment Should I be shooting in RAW even though I'm a beginner that doesn't know how to retouch photos yet?
@Itai - Do you honestly believe that you can get to a point where absolutely no retouching is needed? Does "retouching" also include changing the brightness and contrast? What about sharpening? What about some noise reductions? RAW files need to be developed, just like negative films need(ed) to be developed.

comment How can I maximize the “blurry background, sharp subject” (bokeh) effect?
@NickAldwin - Actually, it isn't really the focal length but distance to you subject or "the size of your subject in the picture" that is important. If you make a portrait where the head is filling the picture frame with a 90mm lens and a 35mm lens, both at F2.8, you'll get the same DOF. The difference is there will be more distance between you and your subject when using the 90mm.

comment How does one use circular polarizers?
What would you consider a very wide-angle lens? I find myself using the 18mm part of my kitlens (18-55mm) more and more these days and I'm thinking about buying a 10-20mm or a 12-24mm lens. Would you say that polarizers are not recommended for those types of lenses?

comment What should I consider when purchasing a macro lens?
When doing macro photography, you'll probably use something between f/8 and f/16. Because of the magnication (1:1), the depth of field would be incredibly small when using f/2.8 or f/3.5.
