comment Beginner photography - Low end DSLR vs mid/high end Point and Shoot/P&S?
You stress about zoom factor, may I know if you are into sports/birds photography ? Because these hobbies do require a long range lens. And if you dont want to compromise quality you would need a DSLR. There are some equally good P&S but they are quite expensive.

comment What ND filter to use for 5 second exposure hyper lapse in daylight?
5 seconds on a sunny day with ND 8 is not possible. You will end up with over exposed photos for sure. it might be possible to get ~2 seconds exposure with only ND 8.

comment How to safely disconnect EOS camera from Mac?
@ChinmayKanchi Err what ? By turning off camera you are cutting off SD card from terminal. If there was any read/write happening that would get abruptly terminated.

Check your Image resolution in Settings, set it to largest available. Check your manual Function Settings -> L should give you necessary settings according to that Manual

Samsung Galaxy Camera has optical zoom, not sure about DOF control. Although this is ONE exception as basically its a point and shoot with phone functionality.

@AmroAshraf For me this happens when I am using a UV Filter on top of my lens, but without it, its fine. Are you using any filters ?

It also matter on which object the light is bouncing off. If its non metallic light will be bounced off in all directions.

When light reflects off a material denser (say glass) than the external medium(say air), it undergoes a polarity inversion.
