comment Why is there a vertical line on the right of some pictures rotated with exiftran?
Why don't you just use nconvert? Never seen such an issue from it and before cameras did autorotation, I used it all the time.

comment Apple Aperture replacement
@bart - They now claim to be 4X faster (down from 10X two versions ago) but my tests align with this. Now that I just upgraded to LR 5.5 (was stuck on an old version previously due to a bug), I'll run some more benchmarks.

@dpollitt - The one I use pre-import is PMView Pro. It's blazingly fast and means less time importing in Lightroom, plus no need to catalog images that are destined to be deleted.

comment Variable focal length for macro lenses?
Apparently, it's not the same as a zoom. I was not sure, so I asked a question about just that a while ago: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/21457/…

comment What are the pros and cons of the two Sony mounts — E and A?
@KartickVaddadi - Contrast-Detect AF is actually more accurate and most hybrid cameras like the NEX-5R switch off Phase-Detect AF in favor of Contrast-Detect in low-light. This intentionally sacrifices speed of focus in favor of accuracy.

comment What are the pros and cons of the two Sony mounts — E and A?
There is always some chances of missing focus and there is nothing in the mount which makes one more or less likely to do so. The brighter the lens though, the more light the AF system has to work with.
