comment Can I charge the battery inside a Nikon D90 through the camera's USB port?
That AC adaptor would power the camera while it is plugged in, but will it actually charge the battery?

comment How to capture snow flake?
The second example is "frost flowers" or "feather frost". So it is a type of ice crystals, but not actually snow. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frost_flower

comment What to do to replace an aging Four Thirds DSLR?
Some Micro 4/3 cameras can be used with a battery grip, which would make them a bit bigger and heavier.

comment Correct a fisheyed picture using Hugin
Why 2.2 for focal length multiplier? Micro 4/3 has a crop factor (or focal length multiplier) of 2.0, so probably best to set that.

comment Fixed lens camera
There are some cameras with a 'fixed-focus' lens. Usually they have focus set to the hyperfocal distance, and have a wide depth of field, so photos will mostly be sharp. These are mostly just cheap, basic, low-res compact cameras and smartphones, so not great quality anyway.

comment How to place a light-weight point and shoot camera on a balloon
A GoPro Hero3 (without any housing) only weighs 75g. Though the waterproof housing could add another 100g, plus the weight of any mounts etc. You can use it without a housing, maybe attach it to the balloon with elastic bands etc, could be pretty lightweight.
