comment Can I trigger my own device from a Canon DSLR hotshoe?
You can also utilize a camera's PC Sync Port if your model has one. I know the Nikon D4 and Canon 1DX both have them. Nikon calls it the Flash Sync Port and Canon refers to is as the PC Sync Port. This type of connector has been around for a number of decades and provides a very simple open/close circuit that, if memory serves, does not utilize any voltage across the terminals. It should be more of a infinite/null resistance situation. Whatever you have connected to the camera, I highly suggest using something like a optocoupler device to separate the two circuits.

comment Where can I get a frame for a 4x18" panoramic print?
I just did a 8x32" panorama which I made into a 10x34" framed print. The print cost less than $20 at Bay Photo and my local Hobby Lobby charged a total of around $50 for dry mount, matting, glass, and I assembled my own frame rails (as mentioned in comments below).

I have done this approach with good success along with also finding low priced, pre-made, frames in such things as wall mirrors (removing the mirror glass of course). Wall mirrors also tend to be made in odd sizes and even found at places like garage/yard sales.

I really like my local Hobby Lobby or Michael's stores. They carry these frame sides in pairs as mentioned along with the other hardware. Albeit, you are very likely to find cheaper prices online, I also have Hobby Lobby do my dry mounting, matting and cutting of the glass. A total one-stop experience. To save some more cash, you can go to a home improvement store for the glass. They should even cut it down to size for you in store.

comment Is there an easy way to change between camera straps?
WARNING: I have tried using the Manfroto quick release plate for the purpose mentioned here and killed my DSLR and attached lens when the flip-out ring on the Manfroto screw finally snapped off. It seems like it's strong enough, but I can attest with first hand experience, IT'S NOT!! In fact, because of this I now don't even trust the BlackRapid FastenR FR-T1 and only use the FastenR FR-3 which is a solid, continuous, piece of metal.

Many thanks for adding the details for DOF. It helped me put this issue more in perspective.

comment Do all telephoto zoom lenses backfocus on the wide angle end?
Thanks for this. I admit I may have had the camera a few millimeters off level for a couple of the shots. But, this is not the first round of tests I’ve performed, just the most comprehensive. And they all have been leading to the same result. I’ve tried the FoCal software but had problems as far as functionality and consistency of results. I will try to re-run some of these tests and to get some real world shots of things, but looking at these shots almost the entire back of the scale looks in focus and does not seem like a DOF issue.

Earlier on, a few weeks ago, I did use live view for a couple of shots. I guess it is a good idea to re-run these tests using nothing but LV as a comparison. Along with using other and/or multiple focusing spots. It may take a few days, but I will post the results when I can. Thanks.
