comment Cheapest camera possible to use for “scanning” slides using a projector and a camera
As per Henk, unless axis of the camera is collinear with the projector, then the image you take will be distorted. Your requirements fall into classical tradeoffs of: Fast, Good, Cheap - pick 2

comment Commercial use of photos of toys?
I can't predict what would sell and what wouldn't (Grumpy cat has brought in $120 million in license fees!)). On the other hand I don't want to be answering a lawsuit. But as you said .. I am not a lawyer either.

comment Commercial use of photos of toys?
How do you feel that fits in with my update about derivative works? For example selling them as fine art. (yes I know I am getting waaaaay ahead of myself here) BTW there are no visible logos or trademarks - except perhaps the designs of the toys themselves.

@MichaelClark Well no one has the exact same cars as mine, beaten up in the exact same way :D (and the $$$ comment was meant to have a tone of sarcasm to it)

@Caleb I don't know .. which is why I am asking the question. I would expect that companies like Mattel have a good hold on the look of their works as otherwise any toy company could make knock-offs that exactly replicated them.

comment How do I determine the actual calibrated specifications of a Holga?
@PatFarrell If I wanted to "Spray and Pray" with my photography I'd use a digital camera :P Learning the actual capabilities of my camera will help to improve my shots, but then again you will probably shake your head in horror when you learn a Cokin P series filter holder (of the appropriate size) slips quite nicely onto a Holga's lens.

Thanks for that link .. and I just went and pulled the back off my Holga to take a look .. and went "Ooops .." as I discovered that there was a film in it. Hopefully I won't have lost too many frames (I seem to remember doing that once before and not losing much)

BTW I have just seen an iPhone app that directly measures shutter speed. That actually may be a good start for me,

comment How do I determine the actual calibrated specifications of a Holga?
In theory I think you are on the right path, but without first isolating the shutter speed all you can compare are EV values and not f-stops. I also don't think that you could do the comparison with a digital camera, but you could do it by doing comparative densitometry between the same type of film stock in the Holga and a regular SLR - assuming you can trust the SLR :-) . (but your answer at least made me think it through)

comment What kind of earplugs are best for concert photography?
@AJHenderson The reason I mentioned sound guys was because that is "their" field and thus would be able to offer a greater depth of advice. However from your answer it seems that you have that covered as well.
