comment CHDK on Canon Powershot S100: Which Video Bitrate to choose?
Although this would still probably be closed as "opinion based" there - what settings you choose depends on what you're going to do with it.

comment Senior picture 72 dpi vs 300 dpi
It's not quite a duplicate of that question, but the answer is the same - DPI for digital photos is meaningless, so your school shouldn't be specifying it as a criterion.

comment do mirrorless camera lenses have automatic diaphragms
If it's that, the answer is the DoF preview button which exists on most, of not all, DSLRs. Alternatively, it could be something else entirely, which is why I asked the question.

comment About AV mode in Canon DSLR
Or use manual mode with auto ISO. The only problem there is that you then lose the ability to do exposure compensation on most Canon SLRs.

comment About AV mode in Canon DSLR
If you're fixing aperture and ISO and not letting shutter speed vary appropriately, how do you expect to get a properly exposed shot?
