comment What automatic modes are appropriate, if any, for outdoor vs. indoor situations?
Never. But how does this answer help you? The only thing I know is if you keep it in newbie more you will stay a newbie longer!

comment How can I avoid overwriting original images after editing in Lightroom 3?
Lightroom is a non-destructive editor, so you actually have to be working hard to accidentally overwrite your original files! Chance are you have not overwritten anything, particularly if you did not get any warnings from Lightroom.

comment In Lightroom 3.5, can I use lens profile of Nikon AF 80-200mm f/2.8D ED for older non-ED version?
What makes you say the optics are identical? The addition of ED elements is sure to give different characteristics in terms of distortion and aberrations. So my guess is that the profile would not be compatible. IIRC, the number of elements/groups is not the same either.

comment Why am I getting overexposed shots in P mode with a D7000?
Auto-Exposure Lock - There is a button labelled AE-L/AF-L to the left of the rear control dial. You should configure it in the custom setting menu to be AE-L only. Then you point the camera so that more of the sky is in the frame and press it. This will lock exposure to give more importance to the sky. Lower the camera without release AE-L, half-press to focus and then full-press to take the shot.

comment How to focus manually on the eyes, for a self portrait without a remote?
Most cameras do not AF with the self-timer active, so it will not work as is. Using the Face-Timer though is exactly meant for that, it even supports group shots by waiting for the addition of one face.

@Greznio - The camera has to make a choice in a situation like this. In my review of the D7000, I noted that the Matrix metering emphasizes the center too much, which gave results similar to yours. Had you used AE-L with higher-up and then recomposed, your exposure would be darker.

This examples exceeds the DR of your camera, therefore it will either be over-exposed somewhere, underexposed, or both (in different parts). In this case, the camera choose to overexpose the sky. Come back a few hours later when the contrast is lower or learn about Exposure Fusion or HDR if you like that sort of thing.

comment Why do fixed lens cameras have a motorized zoom while interchangeable lens cameras don't?
See paragraph 5: The electronic zoom allows for a completely retractable design which makes cameras smaller. And paragraph 6: Electronic zooms have an advantage while shooting video since they can advance more smoothly.

comment Is an artificial external source of light required even with a low-noise high ISO range?
When you have a backlit situation, the background is brighter than the foreground, this is distraction from the subject and often results in under-exposure of the foreground or over-exposure of the background. No changes in ISO can fix that. Using a flash can illuminate the foreground and the photo will be able to show details in both background and foreground because the difference in lighting is less.

comment Will the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D be a good fit with the D60, even though it doesn't autofocus?
Without knowing what you are doing it is hard to tell you what is best. In general, between a body and a lens, I'd get a lens. Particularly if you only have low-quality lenses. The lenses you choose should match the types of photos you want to take. A bright 85mm for example is good for close up portraits and detail shots.
