comment Which alloys are used in the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L?
The EF 300mm f/2.8 L also includes fluorite elements that would likely crack in an environment that hot.

comment Does a “body-only” DSLR need a lens added before use?
@Phil The magnifying glass in your scenario is, in fact, a lens.

comment Nikon Lens - Stopping down causes over exposure in Aperture Priority mode
If the lever sticking when moving from f/32 back to larger apertures was the problem, you would be getting underexposures rather than overexposures.

comment Can I enable pixel binning on Canon PowerShot G1X?
Exposing to the left will usually introduce more noise when you push the exposure in post because you are amplifying the noise as well as the signal. To reduce noise you need to ETTR (overexpose) and then pull the exposure in post.

comment Why does the YN-565EX need a radio trigger with the YN-560-TX?
The YN565EX has an optical receiver that is compatible with Nikon's CLS. Even though it has an integrated receiver, it is not compatible with the YN560TX that uses radio signals.

comment Is this a genuine Nikon Lens Pen?
FWIW I bought the "old" version Nikon LensPen linked in my answer in 2010 and it feels like a cheap piece of plastic also.

That is the older version which may no longer be available to Cameta Camera, which is who you really bought it from through amazon.

comment Is light fall off corrected for in modern cameras?
No one is saying there will be no fall off. But some lens designs will increase the amount of fall off when compared to another lens design of the same field of view. And the wider the FoV, the more pronounced it will be all other things being equal. A long telephoto lens that only has a 3°-4° FoV includes such a small part of your spherical projection that the difference between it and a flat plane becomes almost insignificant.

comment Is light fall off corrected for in modern cameras?
It is not as simple as you present it because most modern cameras use compound, rather than simple, lenses. Some lenses demonstrate very little light fall off at the edges while others demonstrate quite a bit.

Most higher end modern cameras use CMOS sensors, not CCD sensors.

comment Is it card or camera ? which stops video at 29 min 59 sec?
Specifically, the firmware for the camera imposes the limit. Due to regulations in Europe, any camera that can record video for 30 minutes or longer is considered a video camera and an additional tax is imposed on the sale of video cameras. By including the 29:59 limit, Canon (and other manufacturers) can avoid the video camera tax.

Could you provide an exact link to the product you ordered? If you bring up the invoice on amazon, the product listing should be a link that takes you top the product page.

comment Difference between Wireless Flash Trigger and wireless flash controller
@MikeV He doesn't necessarily need a second transceiver, a simple receiver on the correct frequency would also work.
