comment What are the pros and cons of the Sony α230 DSLR?
Every 'current' I would say. There were actually 3 that I know of which had fixed lens, all over 10 years old.

comment Reservations on making the move to Adobe Lightroom or Apple's Aperture
Too many things rolled up in one question, it will make it hard to vote on since different answer may address different parts of your question. I would close this one and open 3-5 questions (actually some may already have answers - use the search feature) each focusing on an important issue.

comment Reservations on making the move to Adobe Lightroom or Apple's Aperture
Complete disagree. Managing location of files let you have a sane organization should there be a problem with the software, which happens way too often between software upgrades, OS upgrades, H/W upgrades, software updates, etc.

comment Is there a lossless sRGB to CMYK conversion?
Thanks Jerry! This answers my question and matches what I knew already. This does open plenty of tangential questions which I'll probably formulate soon.

Just a nit-pick, fisheye lenses use a different projection which makes all lines curved unless they cross the center of the frame. People do not normally refer to that as barrel distortion, since it is intended.

Since white-paper reflects all wave-lengths, why can't it show all possible colors? From what I've been reading, it seems the gamut of paper is extremely large (dynamic-range though is not, which is another topic entirely).

Hmmm... some fundamental definitions are needed. To me, a color-space is largely defined by a gamut. Otherwise, couldn't sRGB and AdobeRGB could be the same color-space with different gamuts?

comment Does an interchangeable-lens compact camera (SLD) give me room to grow vs. a DSLR?
@mattdm - Interesting. As a starter, they are excluding Sony SLT cameras since they are asking to name 'Mirrorless' cameras and responders are going for it (MILC is presently top). SLD includes both MILC and SLT cameras.

comment Which raw processors interpret distortion/CA correction from Micro Four Thirds cameras?
AFAIK, all Windows software work under Linux with the right VM. I use Parallels under OpenSUSE to run Lightroom. About the data, perhaps you should write to Olympus. They probably know who they gave it to.

comment Are Kata bags worth their price?
Indeed! I guess the better question is: should you pay the asking price for item in question? Personally, I usually set my desired price first and then only buy around or below it (deal!).
