comment What's the dynamic range of the iPhone 6 Plus?
DxOmark don't give the same kind of quantitative measurements for mobile devices as they do for "real" cameras as their analysis is based on the raw sensor output, which generally isn't available for mobile devices. This does present a problem - how are you ever going to be able to tell the difference between "greater DR in sensor" and "different JPEG processing algorithm".

comment Nikon D800 Image Not Sharp
Which of these issues do you believe apply to the photos the poster has linked? At the moment, this answer is almost entirely generic.

comment GoPro 4 Night Timelapse
Jasmine / Jakub: comments are there to clarify the question; please post an answer if that's what you're doing.

comment How does a modern DSLR camera and lens actually adjust its aperture
Most(?) SLRs have a "depth of field" preview button which you can use to see the iris - put your camera into aperture priority mode, set an aperture a couple of stops down from the maximum aperture of your lens and then, while looking into the lens, press the DoF preview button - you should see the iris blades in place.

comment How can I take long exposures on Nikon D7000 with a wireless remote?
Michael - do you believe the answers to the other question to be incorrect in saying that this is possible, or is there a difference between the two scenarios which I'm not seeing at the moment?

comment What could cause pictures to come out too dark when using a ring flash?
Voting to close as unclear - the poster has had two months to provide sample photos and without those we can't really help (as the answers show).

comment How to get consistent white balance on a 3 photo stack?
The obvious answer here is "take them with the same white balance". Could you expand your question to explain why that's not an option?

comment my pictures getting corrupted on my smart phone
Voting to close as unclear - the original poster has had a month to respond to queries but hasn't done so.

comment Why did Nikon stop producing the T series close up lenses?
At the moment, this question is largely opinion-based (nobody outside Nikon really knows Nikon do what they do) and is likely to be closed. If you could edit the question to be emphasize the last point ("what alternatives do I have?") that would be a much better question for SE.

comment What's the best lens for shooting baby's and children?
Although do also read Prime lens or flash: which upgrade will most improve baby photos?

comment How can I make this text effect in Photoshop
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about graphic design.

comment How can I convert a PDF into jpeg format?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about converting file formats in a non-photographic context.

comment Why can't I use my 64 GB SD card in my Nikon D60?
What camera are you using? Check whether it supports 64 GB cards.

comment Correct anti-aliasing color when moving to a new background?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about image editing in a non-photographic context.

comment Why can't I use my 64 GB SD card in my Nikon D60?
Which device did you use to format the card? Similarly, what happens if you try and use the card in another device?

comment Leaving Apple Aperture for Adobe Lightroom, is there any way to avoid losing my photo adjustments?
I feel that making "available only for Creative Cloud users" count as a problem is going to be unproductive in the long run - like it or not, Creative Cloud is the future of Adobe products and if you're going to buy into their solution long-term, you're going to need to buy into Creative Cloud.

comment what would be a good but inexpensive telescope lens?
Sorry, product recommendations are off-topic here.

comment How can I improve this long exposure image?
Could you explain how a graduated filter is going to help here - which orientation should you put it in, etc?

comment Do I need other camera lenses if I have an 18-200mm or other super-zoom?
Some worthwhile reading material: Why prefer the 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses vs 18-200mm?, Will a high-quality zoom lens provide near equal image quality compared to primes? and a number of other questions already on the site.

comment Pictures I took from my Nikon D5000 have low contrast. Whats wrong with my camera?
Voting to close as unclear - the OP has had two years to provide some examples of the problem, and without that we can't really help.
