comment Why does the camera review change color after a second?
Or look at it this way" "Why does the picture on my camera's LCD look fine and then change?" is virtually identical to "Why does the camera review change after a second?" Only the particulars are different - the core question is the same.

comment Why does the camera review change color after a second?
Both problems are caused by the same core question: "Why can't I understand the difference between the image displayed on the LCD while the camera is actually taking the picture and the preview image it displays after it takes the picture?

comment How to adjust exposure for both the sky and the landscape?
"Still HDR images do not look natural." Bad HDR doesn't, but well done HDR doesn't even look like what you think HDR is. For more, see photo.stackexchange.com/a/45670/15871

Camera LCDs lie like politicians!

comment Is it coincidence that Nikon F lenses can fit a Canon EF body (with an adapter)?
Look at it this way: the various mounts have always been pretty much proprietary for a reason - to force the owners of a particular camera to also buy their lenses from that same manufacturer. Until the very recent past, third party lenses were for the most part either vastly inferior to top tier OEM lenses from Canon, Nikon, Minolta, Pentax, etc. (Tamron, Sigma, et. al.) or vastly more expensive (Zeiss, etc). Neither Nikon nor Canon wished to make it possible for the owners of their cameras to use lenses from their arch-rival!

Excellent point about the relative prices of camera bodies back in the film era. Unless you were a working photographer that needed a very robust body to take the abuse of constant use, you sunk all of that money we now spend on digital bodies into film and developing.

I think you can remove the almost. Everything that went into Canon's decision to scrap their own FD/FL mounts and design the EF mount from scratch based on what they thought the future, not the past, would require confirms this. By going from 42mm to 44mm they actually provided Nikon with an opportunity, should they have decided to introduce a totally new mount, of going shorter than 44mm and making it easy for Nikon owners to use Canon glass. Looking back we now know that Nikon hung on to the F mount, but no one knew if they would or not back then.

comment Is there a way to set white balance of a RAW to match the preview JPEG?
Apparently not in the case of your Sony NEX. My Canon cameras all include the shot WB (What is applied to the preview image) in the maker notes section of the EXIF info.

The question is framed slightly differently, but the answer is the same: What you are seeing when you first press the shutter isn't the preview image, it is the last frame of video sent to your LCD (before the sensor is read out) frozen on your screen until the preview image can be generated.

comment How can I use sigma zoom 100-300mm on my new Nikon D5100?
It depends on what mount the Sigma was made for. Sigma usually releases the same lens in several mounts for Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta/Sony, etc. There have been at least two different Sigma 100-300mm lenses: The 100-300mm f/4 and the 100-300mm f/4.5-6.7.
