comment Why are lens apertures usually 1.4, 1.8, 2.8, 4…?
For what it's worth, the second half of your question as stated is simply false - for example, here's an f/1.6 lens and here's an f/2.5 lens.

comment How is this effect created in Photoshop?
@MattGrum Note that the fill light slider doesn't exist in LR 4+ (strictly, in process version 2012 and later).

Please post some sample photos - in general, there are no "proper settings".

comment how can I achieve the instagram amaro effect in photoshop
Did you read the PSA which was linked from your previous question? To quote from that: "it is very, very helpful if you describe your impression of the effect briefly in the title and in more detail in the question." If you don't even make an effort beyond "dark purple", your question is going to get closed again - as damned truths has pointed out, we can't tell what effect you think there is in that photo.

comment how can I achieve the instagram amaro effect in photoshop
Your previous "how do I achieve this effect" question was closed because you didn't provide any detail and this one is going to go the same way very quickly unless you give a much more detailed explanation of what you're trying to achieve. "It has a dark purple in it" isn't nearly enough.

comment camera for b&w fine art
What camera are you currently using, and what do you find limiting about it?

comment Is there a benefit to using a FX body when using DX Lenses?
Sure, but you don't need to go full frame to get the benefits of a better camera body. You'll get all that on the D7100 at two-thirds the cost.

comment Not able to get the Shutter Actuations/Count for my Nikon D5300
Sure. But it would be a much better answer if you linked to an example.

Could you link to an example of a D5300 photo which shows this information?

comment Can someone explain film speeds to me?
While I'm well aware that film is not digital, ISO has the same meaning in both film and digital contexts. In particular, the accepted answer on that question covers film as well.

comment Should I use 0.976 as the Canon 5D mkII Crop Factor / Focal Length Multiplier?
+1 for an interesting question - but I suspect that practically, a 2.5% difference in focal length one way or the other isn't going to make the difference between a good photo and a bad one so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

@ElendilTheTall That should be posted as an answer

comment How many pixels in a megapixel?
-1: 1000 bytes are not one kilobyte in general use. 1 kB is 2 ^ 10 = 1024 bytes. The whole point of this question is the distinction between the two, and this answer ignores that.

comment Which alloys are used in the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L?
Probably only Canon as I doubt many people will have bought a lens and subjected it to metallurgical analysis. Why is this important to you?
