comment Are lenses for my Canon Rebel XT compatible with the Canon 7D?
No. Nikon lens can autofocus via an electronic or a mechanical link but not all Nikon DSLRs have the mechanical link, particularly none of the entry-level ones. So a D3100 or D5100 will not autofocus with a AF lens and requires an AF-S one. A D90, D7000, D3X or D3S can autofocus with both types of lenses. The lens will mount and be usable with MF on all these cameras.

comment How to shoot a Nadir image for a spherical panorama with a rectilinear lens?
Well, that looks like one way. Takes a bit more gear, I'll have to try it to see if it works.

comment What would be a cheap and good bracket for a Markins Q-Ball Q20?
Price is high because it is a specialized item. It is simple to cut metal but someone has to make sure the size is exact to very precise tolerances. That brings the cost probably a little up but most of the price is margin for things like this. Stores have it tough because they have to stock so many sizes and variants, many of which will never sell.

comment Why aren't my night shots sharp even when I shot at ISO 100 on a tripod?
As trican suggests, using the self-timer is the most likely to solve your issue. The second is that your tripod may simply not be adequate. Good tripods cost.

comment Why do small sensor cameras use proportionally larger mounts?
Those are pretty good guesses. #2 seems most probable, followed by #3. Ergonomics gets unfortunately very little attention from most brands and they seem to like to boast how small things are despite being impractical. That is why most small ILCs do not have a grip.
