answered What is the real world impact of the lossy compression used for NEF RAW files in some Nikon cameras?

comment Is TIFF really of higher quality than PNG-24?
Equally TIFF files can also be group 3 fax. Why must people continually conflate the container format with the format contained within it...

comment What corrections does MS Camera Codec Pack apply?
I'm sure I read a blog entry that said pdn was moving to wic - I'll double check here but I'm sure you're right and will edit accordingly

comment What type of camera do I need to take reasonable photos across a swimming pool?
@osullic - that would make this a shopping question which would date quickly. Feel free to take it up in chat though...

comment How to photograph oil and pastel art works with Nikon D800?
There's no evidence to back up the assertion that flashes damage paintings. It's an urban myth. :)

comment How can I add a border to a JPEG photo without affecting quality?
+1 for this as the answers which discuss saving back to jpeg are not compatible with all jpeg encoding options.

comment What will I lose by switching from FX to DX mode (with an FX lens)?
+1 From my experience at a couple of runway shows the locations available to photographers favoured a 70-200mm FX anyway. From where the press pack were located the 70mm on the DX body I was using wasn't quite wide enough to give enough breathing space to the classic full length end of runway shot.

comment How can I improve a landscape photo with deep shadows in post-production?
IMHO there are no books like canyon conundrum. Free or otherwise. Any other questions about resources are best picked up with folks in chat.

comment Which Low light zoom lens with image stabilization for DSLR
Does IS actually work on video, IIRC it often doesn't...

comment How can I improve a landscape photo with deep shadows in post-production?
Really the answer for this is a whole book - Photoshop LAB color: the canyon conundrum and other adventures... and when the headache you get after reading it has subsided you'll want to reprocess half your collection. :)

comment Can I use rear curtain sync in bulb mode?
This is one of those situations where wiki's hold the opinions of experts equal to random members of the public... There is no technical reason why bulb mode couldn't have time to trigger a flash pop through the hotshoe before closing the 2nd curtain. It doesn't need any warning. Cameras may not do that - but it would be wrong to even suggest it's in any way impossible.

comment How can I take photographs which best show scratches on the surface of metal?
Sharing your research helps everyone - what prior art have you found in the field (since it should be a well studied problem in the field of materials science) and what aspect(s) are you hoping to improve on?
