comment How to convert huge number of pictures to a short, 30 fps video? (combine frames)
I think you need to use something like ImageMagik (a command line program that can be scripted) to blend sets of 7 frames together into a single image, then you can use VirtualDub etc. to create the video.

comment Help!!! How can I deblur a wedding pic?
If it is badly out of focus then there is nothing you can do, I'm afraid.

comment What's the best way to take photos of a clear plastic bottle for product shots?
Clear plastic is a special case because of the difficulty in making it show up against a white background. Other colours are easier. Stick on opaque labels on a clear glass or plastic bottle can be difficult because you have a perfectly specular object (the bottle) and a perfectly diffuse object (the label) each of which suits a completely different lighting arrangement. It's best to light the bottle as normal (with the bright field technique) and aim a pair of lights at the label at around 45 degrees, snooted and aimed to minimise reflections from the bottle.

A clear plastic bottle wont show up very well at all in a light tent! You want to use bright field lighting, with the only light directly behind the product (forming a pure white backdrop). The way to fight reflections is with darkness, not more light!

comment What are the advantages or disadvantages of a back illuminated CMOS sensor?
@erotavlas The limited gains in efficiency for large sensors still holds true - the A7RII is only something 0.3 stops more sensitive than the A7R (gains in low light performance have come from the dual conversion gain architecture, not BSI). However BSI allows for more on chip logic and faster readout to enable 4K video and silent shutter functions.

comment If viewers don't respond to the rule of thirds, why do some photographers still emphasize it?
The rule of thirds is definitely real - I saw somebody use it once.
