bio

I'm just someone curious about Nature, Science and Tech. Love astronomy, photography, FLOSS and freedom.

comment Is there a GUI application to quickly geotag photos / run exiftool with multiple parameters?
Anyway, if you have a smartphone, the easiest solution is always use an app to record a GPX track when you're out, and then correlating it with your shots, there are really a lot of apps that let you do it effortlessly.

comment Can a laser pointer damage the sensor in a digital camera?
Looking at @Alan's answer, it seems that lasers CAN damage camera sensors. Maybe not those small red-dot ones, but I bet that probability for such damage depends also on lens, aperture and ISO, so I won't try.

comment Does security scanning a camera with battery inside cause damage to the sensor?
I don't know which scanners are there at 911 Memorial, but I can tell from my experience that usual airports scanners never damaged my cameras, even with batteries installed, even after several passes in a short time. Usually they were switched off in my bag, so I can't tell if they could be damaged if they were on, but I guess not.

comment Which exif tag to use to add filter data?
After some more tinkering I confirm that best practice for me is to add text like "ND8 Filter" to UserComment tag using exiftool or Martin Novak's "Exif Editor" before importing shots to Aperture. This way I can search these shots in Aperture using words like "ND8" or "filter". Aperture don't let me edit this tag, and I'm ok with it: no risk of overwriting it by mistake.
