comment Why are my photos taken with the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 coming out blurred?
In addition to being back focuses, as others said already, you are shooting wide-open. This lens does not get truly sharp at wide-angle until F/8 with F/5.6 being pretty decent.

comment Does a viewfinder cover really make a difference?
@Jasmine - Only with (D)SLRs which are the only cameras that come with a viewfinder cover or eyepiece shutter. Camera with EVFs need not worry about it.

comment How to tell if a digital camera shoots quickly
Some cameras have a pan focus mode which sets the lens to the hyperfocal distance in which case it no longer focuses when the shutter is half-pressed. All cameras with a Manual-Focus mode will not focus in Auto mode when MF is engaged.

comment What are the values in the white balance menu in D40 refer to?
0 is relative to the chosen WB. Each Preset, for example, Cloudy corresponds to a certain color-temperature in Kelvin. An adjustment of 0 means that there is no offset. It works similarly to EC where WB Fine-Tuning is adjustment over the set (Preset) or metered (Auto) value. When you set a Kelvin temperature explicitly, many camera disable adjustments.

comment Why is there a vertical line on the right of some pictures rotated with exiftran?
Why don't you just use nconvert? Never seen such an issue from it and before cameras did autorotation, I used it all the time.
