comment Why do printer companies not seem to care about the particular CMYK used by image?
To a degree, I can only speculate -- but I've expanded my answer based on what I know about the industry in the US.

comment With which film camera should I start?
A few more bullet points: * Traditional darkroom film work is a lovely craft, but it isn't necessary to photography. * If you want to share your work, you'll need to digitize it anyway. * If you do decide to use film as part of a learning process, I'd recommend slide film -- that way you see what you did, not the lab's interpretation of what you did.

The type of printing could come into play, a set of flyers or posters run off in the thousands would be handled differently than an image file run off once on a big inkjet. So could you provide a bit more detail on the type of jobs?

comment How can I maximizing dynamic range without postprocessing?
Looking at the device's manual, it doesn't seem that any traditional photographic techniques are going to be applicable -- the device has its own lighting grid and it doesn't seem to be producing an image as much as a code, as you say.

comment Any cameras move the sensor instead of lens elements for focus?
Right, doesn't really matter how you increase the distance between the lens and the sensor, not sure why I worded it that way (it has been a while since I've used a view camera). I guess from a workflow perspective (when using a view camera) with close-in shots you could put the lens where you wanted it and have it and the camera's position fixed and then adjust the focus using the rear standard. Not sure if that is a huge advantage.

comment Database tool for searching GPS location and Lightroom tags?
I'm not a Lightroom user, but it looks like its catalogue files are SQLite databases. So theoretically, any tool you have that can query an SQLite file can query a Lightroom catalogue file.

comment How to properly store years of digital picture files on linux without databases?
If your basic need is to tag and then find photos by tags using command line tools, then I think exiftool is your friend. For a very basic search example with exiftool see: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/47771/… NOTE - maybe this question should be marked as the duplicate?

comment What is the name of the editing technique by which foreground objects are made to appear to be in motion?
I think the questioner is talking about this (parallax effect with still pictures in video): petapixel.com/2013/11/19/…

comment Nikon D750 + Nikkor 18-35mm - How to enable full autofocus?
I think part of the problem here is technical terms. There is a thing called 'trap-focus' which will fire the shutter when an object appears in a pre-selected focus point. But you still have to select the focus point. If that is what you want, I'd change the question title to something like "How to use Trap Focus technique on a Nikon DSLR"

comment Could I save power by using a camera with only grayscale detectors?
I don't think stackexchange wants to be a product recommendation site, but most of these cameras are designed for 30 feet and closer. I've taken clear pictures of animals just a few feet away. There is a "The Great Outdoors" stackexchange, there you could perhaps get recommendations on what to look for and what brands are well regarded.
