comment What does the hot shoe do when I press the trigger?
OK, let's step back a bit here: what actual problem are you trying to solve? At the moment, it's very hard to work out what kind of answer to give you.

comment What does the hot shoe do when I press the trigger?
Are you asking about a generic, manual only, hotshoe or a complicated, multiple signals, proprietary hotshoe, and if the latter, which one?

comment Can I shoot video with a Canon Rebel XT/350D?
@scottbb Much better to propose an edit yourself than ask someone else to do it. Or given as you now have 2k rep, just edit it :-)

But I'm not carrying around my laptop when I'm in the field shooting.

I'd ask your neighbour.

comment Help me choose 2 lens for 2 different photoshoot type
Aside: the thing which will make the biggest difference to portrait photography is lighting gear, not the body or the lens.

comment How can I edit equirectangular images?
Ah, so you want to add text onto surfaces in the picture, rather than just a watermark or the like?

comment How can I edit equirectangular images?
Why is editing an equirectangular image different from editing any other sort of image?

comment Black clipping paranoia - rational fear or over critical?
I've voted to close this as opinion-based. In the absence of any other constraints, it's acceptable to do whatever you like to your images, and it depends on the effect you want for that particular image. For example, it's perfectly acceptable (and in fact, expected) to have some pure black in an astrophotography image.

comment Can I create a colored vignette in Photoshop Elements 14?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about graphics editing without a clear photographic context. Not all questions about graphics editors are on-topic just because they can be used for photo editing.

@junkyardsparkle You should make that into an answer.

comment What adapter do I need to mount an old Minolta lens to a Canon EOS camera?
@Dragos With the photos of the lens, we should be able to help here as to saying which mount it is.

Have you read Why are my photos not crisp? and Why do my images look different on my camera than when imported to my laptop?

comment Is there a datasheet for the Canon 24-105mm diaphragm unit?
That's the diaphragm which controls aperture, not the shutter which controls exposure.

Could you expand this answer to explain what "Capture 1" is and why it might help?

comment How do I make my photos sharp enough for print or selling online?
If you saved it as a JPEG from Lightroom, then it could be what's making the difference. You should only ever export to JPEG as the very last step in a workflow - until then, stay in an uncompressed format like TIFF. As for JPEG compression itself, we don't seem to have a good question on that, but Wikipedia is a good place to start.

comment How do I make my photos sharp enough for print or selling online?
Could you host a copy of that photo somewhere outside Stack Exchange? Looking at the left hand side, it's not sharp at all, but that could be the JPEG recompression that happens when photos are uploaded here.

comment How do I auto-focus an EOS M when stopped down to kill the ambient?
This "feature" is generally known as exposure compensation, and it does seem that it can't be switched off on the EOS-M :-(
