comment Why should I use a Graduated ND filter as opposed to the digital equivalent(software)?
Isn't that enough? I always stop when something is significant enough the a longer list does not matter. One can add: Time spent in software, cost of software and, more importantly the unknown of not seeing results in advance.

comment What will be typical pixel count of digital camera 8 years from now?
Indeed. Considering most fixed lens cameras have rather narrow apertures at the long end (F4.5-6.9), it won't take long. I cannot imagine having to shoot only at F/2.8 because of too high MP.

Are those MP numbers of F/1.2? Bye-bye kit-lenses :) or zooms :( if we get close the those numbers! Already find cases where diffraction is limiting creatively.

comment How can I find a point & shoot camera which will not be dust-cursed?
Yes, indeed. An internal zoom has all the mechanism inside the camera and there no gaps. These are used for waterproof cameras but also for plenty of ultra-compacts to make them very slim. Sony makes the most of those, I believe, and Fuji has some of the highest quality ones among them.

comment Do I lose anything converting to DNG?
Judging from the length of this thread, I'm having trouble explaining it. The main point is that even DNG software needs to be updated to support each camera because they have to be able to interpret the data placed in DNG relative to its origin. There is a lot of generic stuff but as soon as data is needed above that, you need new DNG software. The whole thing masks RAW decoding issues by saying DNG format is universal so there is no need for proprietary software. I do not see a case where DNG can be better.

comment Why do my 100mm EF macro lens and my EF-S zoom set at 100mm appear to give a different field of view?
Wow. Honestly I did not realize the effect would be so pronounced make a difference even compared to twice the focal-length! Thanks for pointing it out.

@gsharp - Then I am baffled. If you find out yourself, let us know.

This is a limitation of most low-end cameras. Plenty of high-end cameras support custom timers from 0 to 30s and can take 1-10 shots.

This makes no sense. You must have moved between the shots or added a diopter (close-up adaptor) or extension tube to your macro lens.
