I am a floor-level three-shift factory worker by profession. My hobbies are movies, reading, photography and living in peace. I'm definitely not a 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 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)

There's something related to this, I think, in answers to: What performance-related factors make a Leica camera so expensive?

comment Nikon P7800: Why is that different apertures result in different shortest shutter speeds?
Single mechanism.. I know how it goes with a rangefinder, but how does a digital camera operate a single mechanism aperture-shutter? My guess is the aperture is first fully open, to let light reach sensor for LiveView display. Then apertureblades close fully -> camera clears sensor -> aperture works the role of a shutter to let light in -> aperture closes fully to end the exposure -> aperture opens fully to let LiveView see the light again. Or what is the sequence?

comment Can I activate the sensor without triggering the shutter such that a dark frame is taken?
@JohnCavan Yeah, I can imagine. My longest exposures so far have been only some minutes, and even then the waiting for LENR to finish feels like it's taking forever.

See these search results: Search string "long exposure noise reduction"

Yes, LENR is a feature so common that even the cheapest entry level Sony SLT has it, and I have it turned On for every night time long exposure photo I take :) Then again, to actually take a dark frame, so that you have the dark frame "image" file on your disk, that is not what LENR does.

comment Beginner photography - Low end DSLR vs mid/high end Point and Shoot/P&S?
Sounds like you might like to read What are the differences between an entry-level DSLR and an advanced compact P&S camera? You know, there is a search function on this site, and every question is also tagged with the topic (like keywords) of the question. Combining tags with search tool you can easily find a lot of good information here :)
