comment When should I consider an image sharp?
@mattdm - this is not a question about compering cameras, it's about quality degradation in the same camera - and sharpness is easiest to see in 100%, I agree about the 45deg ruler being hard to get right, I'll update the answer

comment Is there a way to delay shutter release when using a remote shutter, possibly with the aid of Magic Lantern?
The 550D has in-camera options for 2 seconds and 10 seconds delays, when you use a wired remote the camera will used those settings. I don't know about the IR remote or Magic Lantern

comment Is in-camera HDR and panorama better than post?
@feetwet - the current generation of inertia-sensor-based stitching is pretty mediocre (at least based on everything I downloaded to my phone) while the current generation of content-based stitching is amazingly good - I don't see any reason to care about the missing inertia data for at least a few years.

comment Solutions to Multiple 70D Connected to a single computer?
can't find anything that supports wifi, digiCamControl (digicamcontrol.com) and Breeze systems DSLR Remote Pro Multi-Camera (breezesys.com/MultiCamera/index.htm) both offer multiple camera controls but not wifi (according to the web site, never used any of them)
