comment How were negatives backed up prior to the availability of inexpensive scanners?
A wing and a prayer and a fire proof safe in an external location.

comment DSLR with bar/qr code scanner untethered!
That sounds like you'd need a DSLR with custom firmware. I have no idea if what you want is possible (so I'll leave this as a comment) but perhaps you should take a look at magiclantern.fm/index.html and/or ask people there.

comment DSLR with bar/qr code scanner untethered!
Do you mean that when you take a photo with the DLSR that the camera decodes the barcode and transfers that information to the meta-data of the image?

comment How can I save money on shooting, developing, and printing 35mm film?
I have done a bit of B&W developing over the years (but not for a while now), but one thing that has stuck in the back of my mind is how environmentally friendly is the chemical waste from DIY processing. Although I potentially am ignoring that issue when I drop my film off with a local guy who runs a small processing business - I have no idea what he does with his waste and I haven't asked!

comment Do photographers see ambiguity in the color of the blue/black (gold/white) dress?
@JamesSnell Yeah .. thats what I figured seeing that I calibrated the monitor in the middle of the afternoon.

@junkyardsparkle Obviously I am lacking in my "conditioning"! I saw a poll earlier today that split it 2/3 Gold, 1/3 Blue. That seems a lot of conditioned people to me.

I'm not so sure about the "visual clues for skilled viewers". If that was the case then only "skilled viewers" would see the blue. But a lot of "non-skilled" are seeing blue. Yet for me, no matter how I try and process it, I can't see blue in the OP's pic, but I can in the pic I posted.

comment Susan Sontag's “On photography” - Where can I find concise summaries of the 5 articles/essays?
For me, On Photography came across as a huge "stream of consciousness", so that I can't see how you can summarize it down to the level you want without destroying it. IE It has to be experienced rather than quoted.

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.
