comment Is there at least one reason why I should buy an entry-level/prosumer APS-C DSLR versus a compact/four-thirds/bridge camera?
Take a look at the first duplicate proposed by Irme. It answers exactly your question.

comment Is there a camera bag that could serve as a diaper bag, or vice versa?
There is a reason babies have two parents, one per bag ;) Well, what about just a camera-protection to slip into the diaper-bag? As long as the liquids are not higher, you should be good. Here is one from Pacsafe: pacsafe.com/www/index.php?_room=3&_action=detail&id=94

comment How do I properly expose dark scenes containing bright light sources?
FillLight is the Lighroom term. If you have Lightroom you can drag the left part of the histogram towards the right. If you have Photoshop, you can use Curves or Levels. If you use Aperture, I don't know anything about that!

comment How do I take a shot like the flooded tree by Andrew Tallon?
@matt - Which part is no clear? Water smoothness = long exposure; Tree is sharp and clouds are not completely out of focus, so smallish aperture; 2+ filters = vignetting; hard-stop split ND makes the sky darker, otherwise the sun's reflection would not be brighter than the sun; filter coloring gives the unnatural horizontal M-Y gradient. Author claims it is due to the cheapness of his filters and his software-compensation. There are gradient filters to do the same. As I said, just a pile of simple tricks. The art is thinking of applying them in this combination :)

Haha! When I take the time to use my ND400, I am usually up to creating something awesome... plus I get only a few shots like that per golden hour, so I have to make them count!

Clarified. I meant correct for automatic metering looking at the whole scene (Matrix on Nikon, Multi-Segment/Evaluative/etc for others). Absolutely, the photographer can take control and decide what he wants using EC or Manual exposure.
