I am a floor-level three-shift factory worker by profession. My hobbies are reading, photography and living in peace. Most of my free time I spend at summer cottage which is a winterproof house and should be called our 2nd home instead. I have a family, including two kids, two dogs and five cats.

While I list photography as a hobby, I don't mean I am a good photographer. I just like to use a camera and record a memory of things I see around me. Been doing this since I was 14 years old and I'm not any sort of enthusiast about it. I just like it :)

comment Is it possible to do a multiple exposure on an Olympus 35sp?
The next exposure after the completed double-exposure needs to be done with lens cap on, as I wrote in my answer to the other similar/duplicate question. There is no other workaround to it that I'm aware of.

comment Can photographs survive freezing temperatures?
I should maybe add "in this environment glueing of photos does not happen in one year"... Given enough water the photos can stick in each others as soon as the water has completely dried off, like in less than a week.

comment Is the Nikon D5100 really better than the D200?
I hear you @jwenting but to justify the rather brutal tone considering image quality I'd be willing to hear about the lenses used in each camera in this answer.

comment Can an SLR Mounting rim made of metal gather rust?
@JohannesD - Yes, you are right. There is no such thing as "stainless" steel. Though that kind of steel is very resistant to rust it still does rust after all.

comment How does an electronic viewfinder work?
So is it any better to say "cameras with EVF still have a mechanical shutter, leaving opportunity for vibration issues" which sounds like something to worry about, and something that a true DSLR does not suffer from, right?

comment How does an electronic viewfinder work?
@AndyML - Shutter can work in electronic first curtain mode, so the only mechanical part moving prior to image capture is the aperture stopping down. Compare this to film-era SLR and you can safely say a "DSLR" with an EVF has practically no vibrations at all. (Yes, a camera with an EVF is not a DSLR)
