comment How many stops are there between middle gray and white point?
@Fumidu Don't be shy :-) A partial answer is better than no answer.

comment Why is the field of view of my lens narrower than my calculations show it should be?
@Itai in 120m, I doubt the difference between the sensor plane and the end of the lens or wherever else is going to make much difference!

To save everyone else wondering where 216m comes from, I've put in the obvious bit of maths. If you're doing something else, please change things appropriately.

Add maths which gets to 216m

comment Simulating long exposure waterfall shots in Photoshop?
And that would be a good answer to a general "how can I simulate a long exposure without an ND filter?" question, but not to this question which is explicitly about doing it in Photoshop.

comment Simulating long exposure waterfall shots in Photoshop?
Again, not really helpful for the OP who has only one photo.

comment Recalculating lux or lm from EV
Note that lux and lumens are fundamentally very different things: a lumen is a measure of the total amount of light, whereas a lux is a measure of light per unit area. Your light meter can measure light per unit area (or lux), but it can never tell you the total amount of light emitted (lumens).

comment Raw vs Jpeg for non-professional use
I'd disagree with a significant proportion of this: editing RAWs is just as easy as editing JPEGs (you do it in Lightroom), and memory cards are big enough these days that it doesn't matter for a hobbyist as they won't shoot 2k shots in a day.

Could you add a couple of your actual product photos, showing one you think is good and one you think is lacking?

comment How can I best use a (high end) point and shoot camera to take great photos in bars and clubs?
You asked this question yesterday and it was closed as "too broad". The same thing will happen to this one.

Well, they would say that!

comment How can a super tiny iPhone 6 Plus lens produce significant DOF?
"The ratio of these is the f/stop, and the closer it gets to 1, the more bokeh (out of focus) effect you'll get." - not really true. My f/0.7 lens has shallower DoF than my f/1.0 lens.
