comment Canon Rebel XS to Canon T6i, a Full Frame, or Nikon?
What about your current body is limiting your photography? The only thing you've mentioned is no wifi, but that's solvable with an EyeFi card or equivalent.

comment How do I calculate the maximum aperture at each focal length on a 35-200mm lens
I honestly can't work out what you're asking here. "Linear focal length" isn't a term I recognise. Could you try and explain a little more? I'm also confused by your question about f-stops - aperture is mostly unrelated to focal length.

comment Economic DSLR for Night
+1 for the last paragraph: it's not about the gear.

Product recommendations are off topic here.

comment How many stops are there between middle gray and white point?
@Fumidu Don't be shy :-) A partial answer is better than no answer.

comment Why is the field of view of my lens narrower than my calculations show it should be?
@Itai in 120m, I doubt the difference between the sensor plane and the end of the lens or wherever else is going to make much difference!

To save everyone else wondering where 216m comes from, I've put in the obvious bit of maths. If you're doing something else, please change things appropriately.

comment Simulating long exposure waterfall shots in Photoshop?
And that would be a good answer to a general "how can I simulate a long exposure without an ND filter?" question, but not to this question which is explicitly about doing it in Photoshop.

comment Simulating long exposure waterfall shots in Photoshop?
Again, not really helpful for the OP who has only one photo.

comment Recalculating lux or lm from EV
Note that lux and lumens are fundamentally very different things: a lumen is a measure of the total amount of light, whereas a lux is a measure of light per unit area. Your light meter can measure light per unit area (or lux), but it can never tell you the total amount of light emitted (lumens).

comment What is the heaviest micro 4/3 lens?
@B2F But an answer along the lines of "The heaviest lens available in April 2015 was blah" is going to be completely useless in 2017, whereas "The heaviest lens currently available" at least has a hope of being useful in 2017. People buying a lens in 2017 don't care about what the situation was in 2015.

comment What is the heaviest micro 4/3 lens?
I'm not entirely sure of that - if the question were for EF mount, I suspect the answer hasn't changed much in recent years (I'd guess at either the 1200mm or the Sigzilla). However, that does lead to the question as to whether adapted lenses are allowed for this question.

comment Raw vs Jpeg for non-professional use
I'd disagree with a significant proportion of this: editing RAWs is just as easy as editing JPEGs (you do it in Lightroom), and memory cards are big enough these days that it doesn't matter for a hobbyist as they won't shoot 2k shots in a day.

comment How can I properly take advantage of this equipment?
Could you add a couple of your actual product photos, showing one you think is good and one you think is lacking?

comment How can I best use a (high end) point and shoot camera to take great photos in bars and clubs?
You asked this question yesterday and it was closed as "too broad". The same thing will happen to this one.

comment What to do when my DSLR's shutter suddenly sounds different and there's a black line across the top of my photos?
Please provide some photos showing the problem - until you do, this question will be impossible to answer and very likely to be closed.

comment Sharpest lens on Nikon FX body
The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 is a pretty good lens. If you can't replicate the photos you see on 500px or whatever, the problem is either that the lens needs micro-adjustment or (honestly, much more likely) your technique.

comment Sharpest lens on Nikon FX body
In general, "zoom" and "sharpest" are mutually inconsistent. Certainly "wide ranging zoom" and "sharpest" lens are inconsistent.

comment Is it safe to charge a Coolpix S9900 with an Anker 60W USB charger?
Well, they would say that!

comment How can a super tiny iPhone 6 Plus lens produce significant DOF?
"The ratio of these is the f/stop, and the closer it gets to 1, the more bokeh (out of focus) effect you'll get." - not really true. My f/0.7 lens has shallower DoF than my f/1.0 lens.
