comment Lens hood. Why and when to use it?
You forgot #1B: it looks professional. Especially when coupled with a battery grip, it can make the difference between making you look like an "amateur" and a "professional". I've had people ask me a few times if I work as a photographer when I've had the 28-70/2.8 with hood mounted on the camera, but don't think I've ever got that question with only the 28-70/2.8 (without the lens hood). Now, depending on situation that can be a good thing or a bad thing.

comment Saving metadata in images vs. in an external database
@Itai I'm curious what your three levels of backups are. I realize it's only tangental to the question, but would you be willing to expand your answer to simply list the levels you use?

comment Saving metadata in images vs. in an external database
Out of your list of advantages to storing metadata in the image file proper: #1 is covered by backups, which you'll need anyway in any sensible work flow. (Just include the database/catalog/whateveritiscalled.) #2 is moot, as metadata can easily be removed and by itself does not prevent unauthorized use (although it might make it easier to prove an image is yours if you come across it). #3 can be handled by metadata import/export functionality or third-party tools. #4 is a possible advantage.

comment Why don't cameras support journaled filesystems?
@JamesSnell Regular FAT16 also tops out at 2 GiB per partition, so the move to allow something slightly more modern solved a very real problem. Widespread support for FAT32 in non-Microsoft systems seems to have been implemented in the years around 2000, and FAT32 tops out at a significantly more useful even today 2 TiB per partition when using a 512 bytes logical sector size.

comment Can I use a photograph on Facebook or elsewhere that I sold to an artist and are there any copyright infringements
I'd actually scrap that last "probably" in the answer. If you care about the image, get it all in writing. Of course, that doesn't help the OP, but maybe it'll help someone else. Maybe you are on good terms with the person now but what is to guarantee you always will be? If you have a piece of paper that is signed by both and says effectively something like "X buys from Y for $Z full and exclusive rights to use, including the right to sublicense, item ABC, for the period February 31st, 2014 through Nevember 1st, 2014" there can be no misunderstanding or proper argument later on.

Something is WRONG on the Internet.

comment How can I backup my photos while travelling?
Again if you're going with an option like that, Amazon S3 charges about $0.10 per GB per month. It's a bit more expensive perhaps, but they truly don't care what you store, so you can also readily use it to upload e.g. RAW files (and you can make a lifecycle rule that quickly move those files to Glacier, if you're mostly interested in having a backup copy, cutting 90% off the sticker price for about $25/year for 200 GB stored). The problem will probably be sufficiently fast Internet access.

comment Why don't cameras support journaled filesystems?
NFS is not an on-disk file system, it is a network protocol (roughly on par with its considerably more familiar cousin FTP in terms of the problem it solves). Did you mean HFS+ (the file system used natively by Mac OS)?

comment If I paid for photography am I entitled to raw images?
Are you concerned about the RAW files, or do you simply want high resolution images? If you simply want higher resolution image files, that is very different (to a digital photographer, at least) from wanting "the raw files", and you should make your desires clear. Even if the photographer didn't shoot in RAW, an unprocessed image out of a DSLR generally takes some processing before it looks good.

comment Why does the RAW file format take up so much more space than JPEG?
It's worth noting that "RAW" might not be exactly what the sensor recorded. Take for example Canon's sRAW format which according to the linked DPReview post throws away quite a bit of data to achieve a smaller file size. In Canon, sRAW was introduced with the EOS 40D. True RAW formats record all sensor data, possibly but not necessarily (losslessly) compressed.
