comment How can a super tiny iPhone 6 Plus lens produce significant DOF?
While I appreciate this isn't with a kit lens on an SLR, exactly the same principles apply, in particular maximising the distance between the subject and the background.

possible duplicate of How can I get dramatic shallow DOF with a kit lens?

comment Nikon D5100 Producing Corrupt Images
Looks like a duplicate to me: as the answer says, the most likely explanation is a bad SD card. I'll retract that close vote if you try a known good SD card and get the same result.

comment blurred background effect with my canon eos 70d with 18-55 mm lens
That's going to blur everything, not just the background.

comment Why do modern DSLRs support JPEG but not lossless formats other than RAW?
And what's the size of the market for those developers? Tiny. Therefore your question is answered :-)

"Wouldn't it be useful [...]" Useful to which class of photographers?

comment First prime lens for newbie Canon 600D?
On the assumption that you already have the 18-55 kit lens, you can easily find out which focal length you prefer. What more guidance do you need than this?

comment Can Tamron 16-300mm lens fit on a Canon 700D?
-1 for claiming that the 75-300 is an upgrade.

comment Nikon 50mm 1.8g vs 1.8d?
Please slow down with the posting and read the help center - I suspect a lot of your questions are going to be closed one way or the other right now.

comment How much zoom does a lens need to have before we call it a superzoom lens?
@ths I think the first sentence does answer the question: there is no such definition.

It's a start, but this still needs some editing.

comment Significance of shutter speed?
"no shutter speed is any more or any less important than any other shutter speed." This isn't entirely true - the flash sync speed is pretty significant, and the fastest shutter speed your camera can manage can potentially be interesting (although the latter is almost always "faster than you ever really need").

comment What is the performance of a mirrorless system camera compared to DSLR in dim light?
While that question is about APS-C vs full-frame, almost exactly the same things apply to 4/3s vs full-frame - although you may want to be more specific in your question as full frame mirrorless cameras like the Sony A7 exist.

comment Can I photograph a solar eclipse using a 10-stop Big Stopper (+ extra ND?)
I strongly suspect the person you were talking to was confused between transmission and stops. 14 stops = a reduction in light of 2^14 = 16384 times. 100,000 stops = a reduction in light of 2^100,000 = 10 ^ (100,000 / (ln(10) / ln(2))) = 10 ^ 30102 = as you say, a brick in front of the lens. (This is the same way that a "1000 ND filter" is actually 10 stops, because 2 ^ 10 = 1024).
