comment Getting a completely sharp bird when it is up close
In this instance of your sample you could have afforded to stop down by a couple of stops. That probably would have given you the sharpness you're looking for.

comment Corrupted JPG has undesired color bars overlay
Handy tool - also worth pointing out that throwing some recovery software at the SD card might be able to recover the files too.

comment How to convert JPEG to RAW in Photoshop or similar?
@PeterM - not in comments, though it sounds like a good basis for a question.

comment How to convert JPEG to RAW in Photoshop or similar?
@ChrisH - Nikon has multiple raw options, though only the lossy compression is the only option available in the lower-end cameras. The artefacts are really something that only pop up if you start pixel-peeping and only under certain conditions. CR2 has similar problems as it also stores the main image data as a jpeg (source: lclevy.free.fr/cr2) and while it's labelled 'lossless jpeg' I very much doubt that it really is.

comment How to convert JPEG to RAW in Photoshop or similar?
Actually, as someone who has run competitions like this, a good chunk of that is good evidence of how little those in the 'competition'/club scene actually know about what they're doing... Raw on the D3200 certainly does suffer compression artefacts. The main reason for the raw request is (a) to prevent cheating and (b) to ensure only global modifications have occurred in photojournalism events. I suspect if you contact the organisers and say you shot in JPEG they wouldn't have a problem with the entry, certainly won't hurt to ask.

comment Which license to publish photography without release model
@MichaelClark - I don't disagree, but that's not really related to the OP's confusion between Copyright and a Release. I'll add something though just to clarify.

comment Why don't event photographers release non-touched up images?
+1 for my #1 reason they don't want to be associated with your questionable edits

comment If I set my camera to lower resolution, does that mean more sensor area per image pixel?
@MichaelClark S/M/L is taking a full image and downscaling the output to fewer pixels. There is an option to override to force DX mode on an FX body but it's labelled differently (and is quite well buried.)

@ChrisH - that's what I'm assuming too but I'm hoping for a clarification, assumption being the mother of all screw-ups and all that...

What are you hoping to achieve by using a lower resolution?

comment How can I control a DSLR camera programmatically over Wi-Fi?
@MichaelClark - The help center specifically says Programming is off-topic here. As both a programmer and a photographer I read the question as one of finding and implementing an API which is a problem purely in the programming domain. I welcome a suggestion in meta for a clear policy that allows us to accept photographic software development questions though.

comment Nikon D60 shooting corrupt .nef files
That's very odd - there's no reason why that should work. I wonder if the problem was not the NEFs at all but something else. Did you format the cards you tested on, as I'm wondering if re-copying those files might resolve the problem too...
