comment How can I tell what focal length a zoom lens was set to for a photo of the moon?
The EF-S 55-250 certainly does report focal length; see eg my photo of the moon. For avoidance of doubt, that was the EF-S 55-250 IS (ie not IS II and not STM) on a 550D running firmware 1.9.8, shot in RAW.

comment How to gel a large softbox to match ambient?
Please add a summary of the link to the answer - we strongly prefer answers to be self-contained.

comment Why do most professional photographers prefer to use their SLRs optical viewfinder?
Could you provide some references for this assertion?

comment What should I consider when buying a lens hood?
Why do you want to buy a lens hood if you don't know what it does?

comment Canon lens compatibility
The last sentence isn't entirely true due to the 7D.

comment What's wrong with my Sigma 18-250mm lens?
None of that would explain why the pictures are dark.

comment What's wrong with my Sigma 18-250mm lens?
Why would the problem be occurring only with the 18-250 lens? As the OP notes, other lenses are fine.

comment How to restore areas of background lost from flash overexposure?
Did you take the photos in JPEG or RAW? If in RAW, you should have lots of headroom to recover highlights which are only mildly blown in JPEG.

comment Why don't we have a single lens e.g. say a 18-200 f/1.2 lens for the SLR camera?
And for your second question, see Why do some lenses cost 10 times as much when the specs are very close?

comment How was this photo taken
This would be a much better answer if you could explain why you think each of these things.

comment Are the differences between a Canon Rebel t5 and 70D significant?
Product recommendations are off topic here - but note there's a lot more difference between the T5 and the 70D than just the articulated screen.

comment Do I need to buy anything more than just body and lenses?
@CountIblis That's called a lens cap!

comment Do I need to buy anything more than just body and lenses?
Particularly if you buy a set of filters for $13. One of the main reasons expensive filters are expensive is because they have hi tech coatings to cut down artifacts.

comment Why does the camera review change color after a second?
That's a different question and you've been around here long enough to know the "one question per post" rule.

comment Is it coincidence that Nikon F lenses can fit a Canon EF body (with an adapter)?
I think the one thing we can say with confidence is that Nikon did not design the F mount to be compatible with the EF mount. Why? Because EF is ~20 years newer than F!

comment How do I reduce the file size of a jpeg image?
I can reduce just about any JPEG to an arbitrarily small size by reducing it to a size of 1 pixel x 1 pixel. What constraints do you have which prevent you from doing this?

comment 600D Lens Don't Move back and front
Are you able to test with another lens and another body?

comment Why does Sony say that a 35mm lens is “35mm equivalent when used with an APS-C camera?”
Actually, I think Sony's statement is precisely correct. They can't necessarily be blamed for the fact that you have misinterpreted it.

That would be much better as a separate question, rather than trying to jam it into the comments.

Re: your update. No, Sony hasn't misphrased anything - see Matt Grum's answer. It's just that "full frame" is also called "35mm" because that is/was the size of film stock used.
