comment How can I learn about the differences beteen types of lenses, so I can choose the best lens for my purpose?
It may not answer all your questions but if you read my lens buying guide things should get clearer: neocamera.com/guide_lens_basics.php

comment How to do the ghost mannequin effect?
My wife does this using the multiple shots and composes them in PS. That is apparently the easiest way to get the end-result. The wireframe mannequin would simply not be able to hold everything, particularly the straps of a tank-top.

comment Is there a photo print provider I can use to offer a “Buy a print” feature on my own website?
Yes, it a mouthful but if you Google it, you'll get relevant results although none that satisfy the requirements in this question.

comment When buying entry level cameras, are lenses really more important than the body?
@rfusca - Missing a shot means you had the possibility of taking it... with the wrong lens, you more often just can't :)

For quick and easy changing of settings, a D7000 or other higher-end model is best. If that is above your budget, then the D3100 is actually better than the D5100 for handling but not for image quality.

@enthusiast - Sure. In that case you may notice even less the usability difference, particularly if you use the camera in Auto or Program mode most of the time. You will notice however that a good lens focuses faster (you'll miss less shots) and lets you do it in lower light (due to larger aperture).

@rfusca - Just to be clear. I understand your point. The D5100 is an incredibly frustrating camera to use, despite its great image quality. What I am saying, is that the choice of lens will affect the result in a way which has much more impact on photography.

Oh yes, for non-IQ issues there are enormous differences. Those differences will slow you down (due to the lack of dials and buttons), make framing frustrating (partial viewfinder coverage) but really when the artwork is produced, no one will see or know that. They will see the shallow the DOF, the interesting perspective and the quality difference (in terms of contrast, flare control, even illumination, lack of distortion and - on a medium or large print - sharpness).

comment Canon PowerShot S95 vs. Nikon Coolpix s9100
The S95 would be my choice but I have no idea what you would use it for, it is impossible to give a definite answer.

comment How to compare two DSLR bodies?
It's actually squared. 1.5X larger sensor gives 2.25X (1.5^2) shallower depth-of-field. That's why the DOF of tiny sensors is so huge.

Never used any but the term you are looking for is photographic print fulfillment.

comment What is the difference between in-lens image stabilizing and in-sensor image stabilizing?
Nikon adds two more claims for lens-based stabilization: (1) The AF system sees a stabilized image. (2) The metering sensor too.

comment What are the most important EXIF data to display in photo-presentation software?
Well, I there are other useful EXIF metadata, and I do use a few often. Focus distance would have to be way off to judge missed focus though as I generally do not remember how far my subject was.

comment What are the most important EXIF data to display in photo-presentation software?
The answers are grouped by use, but if I had ONLY 2 to choose it would be a tough call. I'm guessing keywords and date/time.
