comment Filming in a steam room?
Depending on the amount of equipment (cameras, lights, modifiers, etc) you need to take into the room you might want to consider filming in a 'steamless' room and applying apropriate steaminess in post.

comment How to tell if a roll of film has been exposed?
If the leader's out check to see if it's crimped. Many/most film cameras reverse-roll the film and that will often leave a mark or crease on the leader where it fits into the take-up slot.

comment How can I convert Nikon D5100 .NEF files to .JPG?
Odd... ViewNX should do it natively. Did you follow the instructions at support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16469/~/…?

comment Is using live view for accurate manual focusing really better?
Live view also gives you the advantage of knowing -precisely- what you're focussing on. AF gives you a little box. In a confused or ambiguous image (e.g. flower in a field of tall grass) live view lets you nail the focus in an unambiguous way.

be aware that Digital ICE will not work with silver based transparencies such as Kodachrome, or most B&W negatives.

comment What is the useful range of apertures for lenses?
I asked a large format photographer why he used his smaller apertures if diffraction was an issue. He said "It's easier to sharpen the whole image and have adequate depth of field than it is to try to correct inadequate depth of field'. To restate- you can easily sharpen away some diffraction blur because it's an evenly distributed blur. Shallow DOF, on the other hand is a gradient, and can't be corrected quite as simply.

comment I'll be doing a gallery show, any advice on how to price my photos?
My point was that the price of your materials is a lower bound for pricing photos. If that is entirely the wrong approach then please give an example of the right approach.

comment Can a drop of a camera+lens cause AF calibration issues on either — or both — the lens and the body? What are the mechanics involved here?
Sure you can use a sheet of music. The only thing to be aware of is that you need to have a well defined focus 'point' (or line, as in the autofocus test page) so the camera doesn't inadvertently focus somewhere else.
