comment Is it possible to do a multiple exposure on an Olympus 35sp?
A quick google shows perhaps something similiar? here

comment How can I make the most of entry level camera gear?
I shot some indoor soccer with an 85 and that was pushing it. A 50mm for indoor sports would require something rather specific I think ...

comment What to do when autofocus on Canon 85mm f/1.8 not working?
Have you cleaned the various electrical contacts on the mount?

comment Can an SLR Mounting rim made of metal gather rust?
It may be entirely possible to remove the rust safely. There are a variety of methods depending on the severity.

comment Post production for beginners
For enhancement, I'd learn darktable, Lightroom, rawtherapee, or a program such as that first.

comment How long is too long to leave the shutter open before prolonged exposure to light damages the sensor?
I think that we're talking about the same thing - but it happens fairly frequently with no apparent ill effects, nor do I see any credible examples of it with a google search. Can you provide any written or documented sources?

I've never heard of overexposure damaging the sensor - source?

comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
@ajhenderson - I'm not saying that its not worth having an in-depth answer to what 'effective resolution' is. But the question asked about their 'true resolution', which is a term Snapsort made up, with a definitive answer, and they even provide a webpage on how they measure it....which isn't this answer. (Regardless of how right or wrong Snapsort's methodology is). It's like asking how Wendy's makes a Frosty and somebody writes on how to make ice cream in depth.

comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
The listed resolution of '21 megapixels' references to the physical pixel count on your sensor. The 'true resolution' that Snapsort offers, trying to account for the fact that all 21 megapixels can't be capturing detail because they're too closely packed together.

comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
@stanRogers - she's comparing two numbers, she references 'snapsort'...what else do you think it means?

comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
@Morpho - None of snapsorts numbers should be the only factor in a buying decision. And generally these days, on the list of things to look for in a new camera, super high megapixels shouldn't be near the top for most people. We could debate the methodology behind snapsort's 'true resolution' and say "they're not taking this or that into account" but overall, they're probably in the realm of a good measure for this. So, if you're looking at two cameras and everything else is equal, but its a different 'true resolution', get the higher 'true resolution'.

comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
The vast majority of this, while true, is completely irrelevant to the question at hand - which is how a particular company is doing a particular measure.

comment Are these photos ruined because of ISO?
'Ruined' doesn't have a technical definition for ISO noise, so its not a good fit for us. That said, they're totally fine unless you're pixel peeping. I wouldn't be upset with the ISO noise at all.

comment Why do I see this yellow color shift at high ISOs and fast shutter speeds?
Definitely not a sensor defect - its clearly the fluorescent effect. Its not an ISO effect, the high ISO is simply allowing you to use faster shutter speeds which puts you in range of catching the flicker. Stop your lens down more and shoot it at f/11, ISO6400, 1/50.

comment How to handle publicly sharing family photos (especially kids) online?
@dpollit - Yup, I didn't think it was specific to Google - just pointing out its an option.

Right, its still a practically identically looking switch.
