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.

comment How should I select a price for a landscape image?
I suspect when you say "sell", what you actually mean is that you are being asked to consider "licensing" the use of your image to the hospital trust. Whatever you do, and whatever price you decide, you should ensure that you retain copyright of your orignal image, and put together a license contract that the trust signs agreeing that they have a non-exclusive right to use your image for the sole purpose of their banner. If they want exclusive rights, or they want to use the same image on e.g. their website, then that should affect the price you decide. Google "license my images" or similar

comment What is this “rushed inwards” type of photo called?
I quite often would in answers; I didn't initially bother in this case, since the question was "what is this effect", not "how do I achieve it".

comment Why is there a difference between the shutter lag times for prefocus and for manual focus?
Thanks. What I was/am struggling with is that the times for "prefocus" were less than "manual". I assume that "manual" means that the lens AF is off, so surely there should be no focussing time involved at all?
