comment What are the major differences when digitizing slides/negatives with a DSLR vs. a scanner?
I've accepted this answer as it is based on real experience and especially using DSLR gear as a scanner-replacement. The other answers are at least equally great and their facts support the outcome of this answer. Thanks all a bunch :-)

comment Will I lose image quality by adjusting white balance in post processing?
True, the white balance data is in the EXIF ie. not in the actual image. With RAW, they're used in processing and with JPEG they're just nice-to-know information.

comment What kind of gloves to use for operating a camera in freezing temperatures?
Note that the particular camera model (Panasonic GF 3) — and most of the cameras with a touchscreen, anyway — has a resistive touchscreen, not capacitive. In other words that means the screen is pressure sensitive, so using non-conductive gloves wouldn't be an issue.

Great points about choosing paper and archiving! Many of which would be eligible for my older question, too.
