comment Canon 1000D SD card maximum
@sumid That's because the camera is called the 1000D, not the D1000 .

comment Brush cursor showing red preview on pressing alt and right click and drag is not showing up in photoshop cs5
With all due respect: that's your mistake and your problem, and has nothing to do with user2118622's situation.

comment Brush cursor showing red preview on pressing alt and right click and drag is not showing up in photoshop cs5
This answer doesn't seem to have anything to do with the question. Why are we even talking about cracked copies when nothing in the question mentions them?

comment Where to find comparison of AF systems
Have you read Roger Cicala's series? Very quick summary: (PD)AF accuracy depends on both your body and your lens, not just the body.

comment Why does the use of multiple filters create vignetting?
With digital cameras, UV filters are entirely unnecessary. The sensor is not sensitive to UV. You don't need one.

comment Should I expect better results from more expensive variable ND filters?
Sure; fixed gradient filters are still simple compared with any sort of variable density filter (which involves two polarizing layers).

comment Should I expect better results from more expensive variable ND filters?
I'm guessing your Cokin filters were fixed density rather than variable density? Fixed density filters are fundamentally a lot simpler than variable density filters and therefore should be better - certainly, you should never get anything like a cross-effect with a fixed density filter.

comment Exposures camera Metering and Drawbacks
Your edit hasn't made things much clearer. Are you asking something about the advantages and disadvantages of using camera metering, do you want to know something about what "18% grey" means, or something else entirely? I'm voting to close this for now on the basis that it's very unclear; I'll certainly retract that vote if it's clarified.

Not an answer to the question you're asking, but: why are you using a UV filter?

revised Why do photos of digital screens turn out the way they do?
Perfectly on-topic here, so remove disclaimer (and "digital" tag which has no clear meaning)

comment What limits the size of digital imaging sensors?
@fubo Are you specifically interested in CMOS sensors (as opposed to CCD sensors) or do you really mean "what limits the size of digital imaging sensors?"

comment Why do small sensor cameras use proportionally larger mounts?
+1 for prescience :-)

@his Which CMOS sensors which are larger than full frame does it mention?

comment What limits the size of digital imaging sensors?
But the Kodak sensor is CCD, not CMOS.

comment What limits the size of digital imaging sensors?
That page is outdated. Hasselblad launched a medium format CMOS sensor in March.

comment How to know if a digital camera is doing anti-aliasing filtering?
And I stand by my comment that an AA filter is not significant in cellphone cameras when compared with the vast amounts of noise reduction all phones apply to their images.

comment How to know if a digital camera is doing anti-aliasing filtering?
Well, in theory a cellphone could do something like the Pentax K-3 and have a variable AA filter. I don't anyone will ever implement that though!
