revised How do I dry water condensation off my camera?
Added degrees celsius to us fahrenheit illiterate who might had first thought the OP was taking pictures in a hot sauna.

comment Should pro photographers learn to work around amateurs at events?
But isn't guests taking amateurish pictures rather an integral part of the wedding event? Shouldn't the hired photographer also document e.g. the uncles and cousins taking their own group photos? Formal portraits and group shots aside, should the pro photographer document the event as an utopia where there are no amateur photographers around or the event and the guests as they are? (Just some ideas good to think through while developing own photographic style — not trying to tackle your question.)

comment Nude photography, any advice?
I think these are less adult-industry-ish than the Money Shots @Itai suggested (but who am I to judge a book by its cover). While I was at it, I made this answer as CW, so others could add own suggestions / in-depth notes on the books.

comment What is the meaning of having 9 focus points and how to see where they are?
@Anisha There is no mention of focus points in the official specification—compare to e.g. EOS T2i/550D which is clearly stated to have 9 AF points.

comment How can you reduce noise in Lightroom 3?
And if, after removing color noise, the luminance noise is not "grainy" enough, you could move the luminance NR slider one step too far and then add some grain from the effects palette. Or you could omit the luminance NR and just add grain to hide the noise in plain sight. Depends on the original photo and one's taste, as always.

comment What legal restrictions to photography are there in European countries?
Ought to fix Wikipedia then, as the mention of anti-terror laws in the context of Panoramafreiheit is seemingly confusing. On another note, whoa, Wikimedia Commons has a fairly thorough explanation by country on the subject.

comment What legal restrictions to photography are there in European countries?
The Wikipedia entry you pointed to suggests both that it is OK to photograph in public indoors in the UK, but the local security guard had a reasonable suspicion that you are a terrorist. How nice! (Well if you spent half an hour photographing just the security cameras, it could be seen a bit suspicious.) @Rowland links to some good info relevant for the UK.
