comment Does a “body-only” DSLR need a lens added before use?
"A body can capture an image without a lens, but it will only most likely be shades of black/grey/white ". I took that to mean that there will be approximately some kind of 'picture', only in monochrome. However that's not the case. It will be an essentially random jumble of pixels.

comment Does a “body-only” DSLR need a lens added before use?
I think this answer is misleading. A camera body on its own will not take any kind of usable pictures, which is almost certainly what the OP was asking. While technically you can use it as a pinhole camera, that isn't likely to do much good to the asker.

comment What are the challenges of creating a pinhole camera with short focal length?
Technically a camera without a lens can't have a focal length. I'm not sure what the equivalent is for a pinhole camera though.

comment Is it still necessary to stop a lens down on an APS-C camera?
Stopping down a lens reduces picture quality? Are you sure? That seems to be the opposite of what I learned, and what the other answers are saying.

comment What are the criteria for being a “professional photographer”?
Wouldn't that just make them a "bad professional photographer"?

comment Can a DSLR function in an environment with high g-forces?
The G-forces encountered during a rocket launch are not all that high: typiclly less than 10g. That's a lot for a human, but not much for a piece of machinery. The G encountered when the device is dropped on a hard surface is much higher. The cameras in the ISS are not required to be operational during the high-G manouvers.

comment Is there a compact camera that offers secure deletion of pictures?
I would recommend a two-stage process. Erase images in the normal way once you have uploaded them to the network, but also treat all SD cards that have been used for this as if they were hardcopy patient records - keep them locked up when they are not in use, use tracking numbers so they don't get lost etc. The first will prevent casual browsers from finding pictures and the second will prevent determined violators.

comment In Connecticut, do employees have rights to photographs of themselves?
On the legality, I suspect that the employee can decline to have their photograph taken (unless it somehow formed part of their duties).
