@Chris The focussing distance will probably just say "infinity" which isn't all that useful!

comment How can I set up lighting for fashion shots in a narrow hallway?
it has to be ring light around your lens not necessarily, think of a light tent. The only thing you need to prevent shadows is to have light coming from all directions, which shouldn't be too hard in a narrow white corridor...

comment Can I damage an IS lens by moving it too quickly?
Even minor knocks and bumps will subject a lens to forces of 10 or 20g, drop and lens and you're talking 100g plus. A fighter jet is at most going to pull 7-8g so, although sustained, this shouldn't damage the IS.

By "Windows Photo Viewer" do you mean the default viewer that comes with Windows 7?

comment Are “Windows Photo Viewer” rotations lossless?
I know that in the past when I've done rotations it has warned me that the rotation would be lossy, which implies that in cases where the warning wasn't displayed the transformation was lossless, but I didn't check. Nor do I remember what version of WPV I was using, not precluding the possibility that MS changed the codebase, so no I can't be sure.
