comment Will a print lab be cheesed off if I concatenate multiple images in one file?
My local camera shop in New Zealand actually promote that approach as a service; they call it a "digital dump". You give them a single image file laid out whatever way you like, they throw it at their printer and give it back to you with no proofing. They trust you know what you're doing, and it's priced suitably inexpensively as a result.

comment Autofocus not working outside scene modes
Welcome to Photo.SE. Your answer may have been voted down because it helps to ensure that your answer is relevant to the information given by the original poster; in this instance, the poster had already indicated that autofocus works fine in "auto" modes, which implies that they already know how to ensure AF is turned on, and how to activate it.

comment Why don't Lightroom or PSE recognize CR2 files from my Canon 7D mk II even though they are up to date?
It's correct in that there are no available minor updates to LR3. However, there are 3 subsequent major upgrades to LR3, the current one being LR6.

comment How do you set up a photo of a glowing tent in the dark?
Yes, definitely a tripod, and then the key is balancing the light from the glowing tent with the ambient light (e.g. stars, blue hour sky or whatever else you want in your image). To the OP: because it's usually a long exposure, the light source inside the tent doesn't necessarily have to be that strong.

comment Help wanted re using Spyder2express calibrator with Windows 8
I haven't saved the driver/installer anywhere specifically that I can find. Pretty sure I just installed version 2.3.6 from here which explicitly states 64-bit Windows support (although doesn't explicitly state Windows 8.1 support).

I've got a Win8 Dell all-in-one and have it calibrated with a Spyder2Express. Don't remember having any issues...

comment Does a “body-only” DSLR need a lens added before use?
No hate from me. Don't take it personally. The voting is purely intended to help the best answers bubble up. Regarding my suggestion re commenting, I had forgotten that one needs a little reputation before commenting on other's answers, although maybe you have enough reputation to comment on the question itself?

Welcome to StackExchange. You might like to consider adding your thoughts as a comment to an existing answer if the main thrust of your entry is really only to agree with other answers. That may be the reason your answer has been downvoted.
