comment What is Quiet mode on a DSLR?
@Paul - Thanks! on Point&Shoot cameras, Silent-Mode mode is the one that shuts off electronic noises.

comment What happens when a Sony SLT camera is operated with mirror up?
The mirror must be moved manually, there is not motor to move it but it is movable by hand so that the sensor can be cleaned. It is a wonder why they did not simply produce a completely sealed unit which would prevent dust from reaching the sensor. I suspect the issue be with the sensor-shift stabilization system but that is just a guess.

comment Why does my Nikon D5000's AF Assist only turn on in some automatic modes?
Just to be extra clear. The illuminator is only useful if the camera con focus on where its pointing, that is why these requirements are there.

comment How to create coloured smoke effect for logo
It would be completely expected to produce this using 3D rather than any photographic process.

comment Is there a Point and Shoot camera with a Macro function or ability?
Indeed, I liked the Nikon P300 and macro is simple with it but one will do better with an ultra-zoom for this purpose which not only gets closer but also stops down the aperture more.

comment What properties should I look for to judge tripod quality?
@dpollitt - Oh, OK. I understood that has those with ultra-wide leg spread and optional short-column.

Missing center-column configuration. Some can invert it to shoot completely downwards and some can tilt it. Others can have it removed completely.

comment What properties should I look for to judge tripod quality?
Quite complete description except the height of the tripod should having nothing to do with your height but the height at which you shoot from. As I tell my students, place the camera first, then the tripod.

comment Why does my aperture setting change as I zoom on my DSLR kit lens?
Did you look at your images? ;) I had that lens too and it really crippled the D90 it came with.

comment How do I know I have the correct exposure when shooting in manual mode?
@Appu - Sorry, that was shorthand for adding +3 EV to Exposure-Compensation (EC).

comment Is there a comfortable, secure, light, and cheap sling shoulder strap system?
C-Loop looks really cool since it lets you choose your own comfy strap. Can't wait they make one that doubles as a quick-release plate too :)

comment How can I estimate the reproduction ratio of an unknown macro setup?
Exactly! Unfortunately Olympus makes the misleading statement of saying 1:1 equivalent.
