comment How to recharge camera battery in the wild
In general, product recommendations are off-topic across the entire Stack Exchange network; some specific exceptions like Software Recommendations exist, but the general answer is "somewhere else" - there are plenty of other photography related forums on the web.

You keep lenses, not bodies. My advice remains to return the body.

comment How to get best photos with SB 28 external flash?
I've removed the off-camera-flash and fill-flash tags from this question as neither of those seem to be actually what you're doing. If they are, please edit the question to clarify.

comment Working on JPEG saved from RAW is this the same as working on RAW ?
"I get to have the same result on a RAW file and a JPEG file recorded with a RAW Lightroom." How are you testing this? If it's "they look about the same", then you're just not looking closely enough (or not doing big enough changes - try lifting exposure by 4 stops).

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".
