comment Is it possible to record private comments in LR5?
There comments in LR which seems obvious, so I am wondering if you mean comments which are not exported?

comment Lightroom: Rate all images on import without losing the rating set in camera
Or a Smart Collection. I have one called 'Unrated' for example which includes all images without a rating, that way I know if anything was skipped for some reason.

comment How can I get the top people of a camera brand to listen to a design idea I have?
BTW, most manufacturers read my reviews of their stuff. The thing is they probably read dozens of others, so your best chance I think is to have your ideas repeated by lots of people. Eventually, a manufacturer may decide to do something because there is demand.

comment How can I get consistent backgrounds when shooting white objects on white background?
Agree with Stan. If the exposure is manual and the background changes color you most likely have ADL on. If turning it off does not work, try using Custom WB to avoid AWB interfering.

comment Saving metadata in images vs. in an external database
@MichaelKjörling - First level is a nightly sync from the source which are on a pair of SSDs unto a standard HDD. Second level is bi-weekly from the internal SSDs to external SSDs (not to copy possible errors from the 1st level) and third level is a stack of Blu-Rays burned in duplicate (one set for home and one for a safe at the bank). The entire stack of optical disks gets refreshed every 5 or so years to avoid long-term corruption. Yes, I know, an online copy is missing in case the city gets leveled!

comment Is there a way to avoid focus searching?
It's worth noting that the assist-light has limited reach of a few meters at best.

comment Saving metadata in images vs. in an external database
Easy on a case-by-case basis yes but still adds complexity. You would have to re-sync the date after each edit or have a recurring job to sync the two. In either case this is more complex than not doing it :)

comment Why does my DSLR stop recording video even with a fast (class 10) SDHC card?
Get a quality card that has reliable write-speed. Despite high-ratings, low-end cards often cannot sustain their advertised speed continuously.

Interesting. I did not encounter that but indeed Google was paranoid about viruses embedded in files and so often reencoded images which meant that even their lossless rotation* was not lossless and significantly reduced image-size on cameras with extremely low compression like Pentax's K-series when IQ is set to 4-star. This is now gone with the transition to Ricoh.
