comment How do I adjust the color balance on a Nikon D300?
Under the camera menu, IIRC you have to scroll down to the second page. Select the WB first and then (I think) press the right arrow. It should be easy to find in the user-manual now that you know what this is called.

comment How can I hold my camera steady?
Never used burst mode in low-light, I rather wait to feel stable before taking each shot. There is any easy way - albeit expensive - to know how stable you are: Buy a Sony DSLR (or used KM one). The viewfinder tells you how much you are shaking.

Yes... Hold your breath out, for a reasonable hand-held exposure (1/15-1/4s). While you exhale there is movement. If you hold your breath in, the tension causes makes it harder to keep perfectly still.

comment What to look for on a DSLR's LCD?
There are plenty of transreflective screens mostly on Olympus cameras and several Sony models. Although those brands like to give their own names to things 'Hyper Crystal III+' which makes things confusing.

comment How do I chose a good camera for texture hunting?
@rfusca - Hhh??? That does not parse ;) Was a price range specified? I must have missed it.

Linear polarizes light and leaves it polarized. Circular is actually a linear polarizer followed by a quarter-wave plate which turns the polarized light that went through into unpolarized light.

Yes, anything can focus through a circular polarizer since light exits it in a non-polarized state. The E-PL1 will focus through it and most likely with a linear polarizer as well (didn't try it though).

Swap out the G12 for a Fuji X100 in your example and I'd say you got it ;) The G12 lens has some strong distortion barrel distortion at macro distances. I did not do distortion tests on the XZ-1 but the Fuji X100 came out distortion and vignetting free with a very sharp sweet spot at F/5.6.

comment Is a Tamron AF 28-300 F/3.5-6.3 with Canon 60D a wise choice for action photography?
Indeed, the main take-away here is to use a fast lens (at least F/4 if not F/2.8 on the long end) rather than something dim and slow like the suggested 28-300mm.

Not only is maximum brightness rarely quoted, it does not matter much in practice. Things like the quality of anti-reflective coating and whether the design is trans-reflective have MUCH more influence on the LCDs perception than how strong its light is.

More dots is better but sufficient is subjective. When I got my first 230K dot camera it seemed so sharp. Now that I've had several 920K ones, 230K seems blurry. It's like going from VHS to DVD and then from DVD to Blu-Ray... There is no going back!

Just a note, comparing these is about to get more complicated! sony.net/SonyInfo/News/Press/201108/11-086E/index.html

Yes. 230K is dots but marketing calls it pixels. 920K as well. So 920k has 4X the pixels and hence twice of resolution linearly in each direction as 230K.
