comment How to get clarity picture from existing picture?
You will likely get better results with denoising tool, such as Topaz DeNoise or Noise Ninja than PS alone. But there is only so much any tool can do with such a noisy image.

comment How can I make the most of entry level camera gear?
The hard part is focusing when the focal plane is extremely shallow. Using burst mode (assuming natural lighting) can help increase your chance of getting a good shot. Live view will also make it easier if you are in a position to use it. I didn't have live view for the linked shot (Rebel XT) so there was definitely a bit of luck involved.

For really close macro, hold the 50 (reversed) against the 28-135 (with the zoom set to 28).

comment Beginner photography - Low end DSLR vs mid/high end Point and Shoot/POS?
Don't forget, a lot of P&S cameras max zooms are in fact digital zooms, not optical. This is in effect nothing more than a crop of the actual photo which you can do with the most basic editing software (at the cost of image quality).

comment Why human eye doesn't exhibit aberrations?
My brother experienced this first hand. He got injured and tore his retina in one eye, so he had a big black spot in the middle of his vision. Over a couple of months, the spot slowly shrank until it disappeared. No, the retina didn't repair itself, he still sees the spot when he closes his good eye. The brain just compensates and learns to fill in the blanks.

comment What is the purpose of Quick Mode focusing in live view?
A bit faster?!? It is probably 10 times faster on my 7D in most scenarios.

comment How AF works with lenses f/2.8 vs f/4
This is very camera dependent, obviously you are shooting Nikon, but different cameras have different AF sensors. Some are capable of having all cross type work at f4.

comment Why can't my DSLR with kit lens focus on objects close to the lens?
Wide angle lenses also tend to have pretty short focus distances.

comment Will it harm my DSLR if I keep it on for a period of several years?
I would venture that there are very few people, if any, that could conclusively answer this, as I highly doubt is part of the testing of the product.

comment What is relationship between focal length and shutter speed?
I have also seen some recommendations that with todays higher resolution sensors, you should actually double that speed. The same would go if you have shaky hands as well 8-)

comment What's a good software to combine all the frames in a video into a photo?
Exactly what I was thinking. In fact, since he is taking a video of non moving scene, there is relatively no or little change between frames, so the information he wants to stack simply doesn't exist. You will pretty much just have a couple of low quality images.
