comment How to photograph an adult and a child together such that the adult doesn't dominate the scene?
I gave more of a 'supporting answer' because I felt Dan and Vertigo had covered enough of other techniques that I didn't need to write a thesis on the proper placement of children and adults. And I certainly think that simply having the child in front of the adult still allows for tons of flexibility - this answer doesn't dictate some 1980s studio pose.

comment What does fast/normal/slow mean for Pentax auto-iso?
I"m got to dissect all that, but I'm glad that SR doesn't effect exposure time like you're suggesting. You're assuming a static subject it seems.

comment What does fast/normal/slow mean for Pentax auto-iso?
Ok, its more complicated than that even. At 70mm f/2.4 its 50/100/200 at 2.8 its 60/120/250. Its just confusing.

comment What does fast/normal/slow mean for Pentax auto-iso?
Hmm I guess so. It's just very non-obvious. It obviously depends on focal length, but there's some kind of limits. For example, at 70mm, slow/normal/fast is 50/100/200 shutter speed. Its that at 50mm as well. At 25, its like down to 25/50/100. At 18 its also like 25/50/100.

comment What does fast/normal/slow mean for Pentax auto-iso?
I guess I'm looking for something more specific. When you say "Exactly what the preferences are, I'm not sure." - that's what I'm wondering.

comment Where can I find B&W film for an Imperial Satellite 127 camera?
It seems high to me too, but given the market, that may just be it.

comment Image manipulation
Obviously something was 'painted' white in the bottom righthand corner. But this isn't an appropriate fit here - its too specific.

comment Why doesn't my Sigma lens autofocus if the subject is initially way out-of-focus?
That seems like an odd choice of behavior. Seems like the more logic option would be to choose a direction to move the focus in to see if anything gets contrasty rather than just do nothing.

comment How can i get AF confirmation working with Samyang 500mm f/6.3 with dandelion chip?
To compensate (if you think AF will actually work reliably with f/6.3 in a bright situation), you could set a fake aperture of f/5.6 and then use exposure compensation to adjust to the right exposure. Then the camera would meter 'correctly' and on a bright situation you may get AF confirmation as well.

Indeed...indeed.

Thats code for "That lens sucks." (for image quality ... probably).

comment Why does raising ISO make image quality appear lower even though my measurements suggest it shouldn't?
I think you may be stumbling across some of the things addressed here: photo.stackexchange.com/a/6622/1917
