comment How can I find the dynamic range of the iPhone 6 Plus or other mobile devices?
DxOmark don't give the same kind of quantitative measurements for mobile devices as they do for "real" cameras as their analysis is based on the raw sensor output, which generally isn't available for mobile devices. This does present a problem - how are you ever going to be able to tell the difference between "greater DR in sensor" and "different JPEG processing algorithm".

comment Nikon D800 Image Not Sharp
Which of these issues do you believe apply to the photos the poster has linked? At the moment, this answer is almost entirely generic.

comment GoPro 4 Night Timelapse
Jasmine / Jakub: comments are there to clarify the question; please post an answer if that's what you're doing.

comment How does a modern DSLR camera and lens actually adjust its aperture
Most(?) SLRs have a "depth of field" preview button which you can use to see the iris - put your camera into aperture priority mode, set an aperture a couple of stops down from the maximum aperture of your lens and then, while looking into the lens, press the DoF preview button - you should see the iris blades in place.

comment How can I take long exposures on Nikon D7000 with a wireless remote?
Michael - do you believe the answers to the other question to be incorrect in saying that this is possible, or is there a difference between the two scenarios which I'm not seeing at the moment?

comment What could cause pictures to come out too dark when using a ring flash?
Voting to close as unclear - the poster has had two months to provide sample photos and without those we can't really help (as the answers show).

comment How to get consistent white balance on a 3 photo stack?
The obvious answer here is "take them with the same white balance". Could you expand your question to explain why that's not an option?

comment my pictures getting corrupted on my smart phone
Voting to close as unclear - the original poster has had a month to respond to queries but hasn't done so.

comment Why did Nikon stop producing the T series close up lenses?
At the moment, this question is largely opinion-based (nobody outside Nikon really knows Nikon do what they do) and is likely to be closed. If you could edit the question to be emphasize the last point ("what alternatives do I have?") that would be a much better question for SE.
