comment How can I prevent Aperture from rotating photos on export?
Use Lightroom instead. :-)

comment What is the best way to resize a high-DPI image for use on the web and in mobile apps?
Current web applications are pretty much "ppi agnostic". The application will resize the image to fit the screen or the space on the screen it is willing to give to the image. See also: photo.stackexchange.com/q/39072/15871 and photo.stackexchange.com/questions/11182/….

comment what is the nikon equivalent to canon lens L series EF 24-105 f4?
The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS is built like a tank! Mine has stood up to all kinds of abuse in the field and just keeps on performing.

comment I dropped my Nikon 18-55 lens — can I fix it?
How is "Is it worth paying to have it repaired" and "Can I fix it myself" the same question?

comment Buying my first DSLR
@Pakman Most mirrorless systems still have some form of mechanical shutter that makes a little noise. The primary noise from a DSLR is caused by the mirror, not the shutter. Many intermediate and professional DSLRs have silent modes where the mirror noise is minimized or even delayed.

comment A6000 and Sony 55-210mm - At 210mm, with tripod, I am getting a “wavy” distortion to all objects in range
Depending on the size of the A6000's pixels, at f/6.3 diffraction may also be beginning to affect acutance.

comment Whats the “most amount of moon” acceptable for astrophotography?
And just where in the sky will the brightest parts of the Milky Way be during evening hours in May at mid-northern latitudes? Below the horizon. They will be high in the sky just before dawn.

comment Are full-frame cameras less forgiving with respect to camera shake?
They're not, unless you are shooting at very wide apertures.

comment Can you photograph the milky way with a full moon out?
Good glass, painstaking manual focus, tripod mounted with cable release and mirror lockup, processing the RAW file to emphasize the contrast between dark and light areas (adjusting the color temp and applying a color filter even when outputting in monochrome), and some fairly aggressive sharpening (just don't over sharpen).

comment Is astrophotography basically pointless with a moon in the sky?
The moon is at half phase twice in the monthly cycle, once when waxing and once when waning. If "wait until the moon sets" doesn't work, then try "shoot before the moon rises" instead. The former works when the moon is rising and then setting roughly 6 hours before the sun (waning), the latter works when the moon is rising and setting 6 hours after the sun (waxing).
