comment Why doesn't my camera produce usable EXIF data with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens?
What makes you believe this is a camera issue rather than a Panotour issue?

Why use any filter at all?

comment Would a TTL flash have advantages over a manual flash for my scenarios?
This would be much better as three separate questions - one is about on-camera flash, one is about off-camera flash and one is about specific technology.

comment Can I get Photographic Paper with lower ISO?
@theJollySin I honestly don't think that "use an ND filter" is an answer to "Can I get photographic paper with lower ISO?" (which is why I posted it as a comment in the first place :-)). Normally we frown on major edits to questions, particularly those with answers, but you could consider making this question more "how do I do very long exposure pinhole camera photography?" - but in order not to invalidate DrMoishe Pippik's answer, you'll probably need to keep a mention of photographic paper in there. Alternatively, ask an entirely new question.

comment NIKON : ED II AF-S DX Zoom vs VR II AF-S DX Lens
Product recommendations are off-topic here... but I'm those two sellers are selling exactly the same camera and lens, just both with poor details. The bundle of stuff differs slightly, but is probably worth approximately $0.00. A well known on-line retailer based in Seattle will sell you the camera + lens for $416, which is probably better value.

@HampusNilsson Feel free to post an updated answer to one or both - or propose an edit to an existing answer. One of the beauties of Stack Exchange is that nothing is set in stone.

comment Why did Canon come up with APS-H and why did the top-of-the-line 1D's *still* use it and 1.3x crop, when FF existed for four years (the 5D)?
"not having to use a bigger lens". Well, actually, yes they did. Canon never made any APS-H specific lenses, so everybody shooting on a 1D was using a full-frame lens anyway.

If you're looking at multi-month exposures, you should certainly read this question.

comment Can I get Photographic Paper with lower ISO?
I know it's not directly what you're asking, but have you considered just sticking a ND filter in front of your pinhole?
