comment How do I set up my camera to get a high enough resolution for printing at 300dpi?
@MichaelClark - Its much more than that, usually 36 or 49, at least. That's because dots are only only tone of one color, so you need a whole pattern to print any color among the printer's gamut.

Sounds like questions for a research paper :)

comment tokina at-x pro 100mm f/2.8 macro for Nikon - aperture automatically changes while in manual mode
Strange. I've never seen that happen on any macro lens but I have not used any third-party ones either (only Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony), so I'm very curious what is going on.

comment How far do I need to extend bellows to achieve particular minimum focal length
Lenses often quote magnification because it is easier to compare. It is a function of angle-of-view and minimum focus-distance which are both determined a lenses construction.

comment How far do I need to extend bellows to achieve particular minimum focal length
Indeed, there is no relation. If you look at the set of 200mm available for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, you will see the minimum focus-distance varies between 50cm and 190cm.

comment How far do I need to extend bellows to achieve particular minimum focal length
It's hard to answer this because you are completely confused. A 200mm lens has to do with its focal-length and determines the angle-of-view when mounted on a certain sensor-size. This has nothing to do with focus-distance.

comment How can cameras have the same number of megapixels even when the sensor size differs?
Please search this site, I am quite sure this has been answered before.

comment What can tall photographers do about tripod height?
@Caleb - I phrased it the other way around, that you will be uncomfortable at some point, no matter your height but, yes, at some of the time, you will be comfortable too. It is just less likely to happen since there is a small range of height where someone will find himself perfectly comfortable but much more possibilities for composition.

comment Term for increasing detail with multiple exposures?
@lionel - Yes, Super-Resolution is separate. Exposure Fusion is basically stacking with an algorithm to select pixels from each image and blend them, so you won't get more resolution from either term.

@lionel - Somehow misread the question, sorry. Hopefully now it fits better. Thank you for letting me know.

Expanded scope to include increased latitude.
