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.

comment Apple Aperture replacement
@bart - They now claim to be 4X faster (down from 10X two versions ago) but my tests align with this. Now that I just upgraded to LR 5.5 (was stuck on an old version previously due to a bug), I'll run some more benchmarks.

@dpollitt - The one I use pre-import is PMView Pro. It's blazingly fast and means less time importing in Lightroom, plus no need to catalog images that are destined to be deleted.

comment Variable focal length for macro lenses?
Apparently, it's not the same as a zoom. I was not sure, so I asked a question about just that a while ago: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/21457/…
