@vclaw I had no idea. Put that in an answer and I'll select it.

comment How were these portraits of Trent Reznor lit and shot?
zooming in on the eyes of the top portrait it seems to me that there are more than 4 lights. There is a lot of specular stuff going on there - although I don't know if they are lights or reflectors.

comment Has Nikon made a camera without an exposure meter?
The FM10 can be added to the same FM/FM2 list (although technically not a Nikon camera)

Just because a film camera has an exposure meter doesn't mean you have to use it.

Can you please explain your definition of Analog and how that relates to having an exposure meter.

comment Are there cameras that autofocus during an exposure?
OK .. Now I can see constant focus tracking as feature. However I can see that it probably would fail if the object approaches you and then recedes from you during the shot. EG standing on the side of the road and panning a car from left to right as it passes right in front of you. The big question is: Is it beneficial in a large enough set of scenarios!

Wouldn't autofocus during exposure be kind of moot as the exposure time would be an order(s) of magnitude less than the time needed by the camera to move the lens?

comment Mid/high-end mirrorless cameras with documented control protocol that can connect to existing wifi networks?
Don't call it a hack - call it a creative networking solution. But yeah .. Sony didn't design the network interface for your use-case, so there will always be an element of hack in any multi-camera solution from them. But as I have no idea about what is the current level of networking and protocols in cameras, I can't add anything more.

How many cameras do you want to connect to? In the case of the Sony you theoretically could add a separate external WiFi dongle for each camera that you wanted to connect to and force a 1-to-1 connection between a dongle and camera.

comment Is Lighroom 5 available only as subscription?
I should be able to tell you, but if you are a business I also expect that there are different tax implications between buying and renting software.

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!
