revised How is depth-of-field affected on micro format cameras?
depth of focus is a different term, the question appears to be talking about depth of field

comment Does a larger sensor resolution increase the difficulty of shooting hand-held?
For the same f-stop a larger sensor captures more light in total and thus offers better performance at high ISO.

comment How do I see the full dynamic range RAWs capture?
@KartickVaddadi the best way of seeing whether a particular adjustment would help is by making that adjustment, then toggling it on and off to see if you think the overall result is improved. The best thing I can suggest is just to process a lot of RAW files and you'll eventually get a feel for what things you should adjust.

@KartickVaddadi ultimately at the end of the day the only way to reliably tell whether you have pushed exposure comp past the "end" of the RAW data is to use your eyes and look for the noise that is always present in the very bottom end of the RAW data.

comment How do I see the full dynamic range RAWs capture?
@KartickVaddadi it's not as simple as lightroom just showing you different portions of the 14-bit RAW data as you adjust exposure comp, RAW data is linear, what lightroom shows you is "curved" to make it look more natural, so lightroom is "synthesising" data by multiplying pixel values all the time.

comment Why are medium format cameras considered superior?
we established in the question Michael linked to that the 1DX, a camera designed for journalists, is better in low light than a medium format back designed for studio photographers. This shouldn't be a surprise, delving into sensor size or pixel size wont yield any more insights than this. If you want better quality than a 1DX/D4 in low light you're out of luck.

comment Do cine lenses have any significant advantages for still photography?
@PhilipKendall the one line answer is that it allows you to take a tight cropped photo and then quickly zoom out and get a wider shot without losing focus on the subject.
