comment Can I publish (online) a photo I took of someone else's house?
@Renesis - I've edited my answer - 1. they aren't "very likely to say no" if you ask the right question (see edit in answer) 2. how much time and money are you willing to waste just to be right? (or, if this is cheap and quick in your opinion - I want your intellectual property lawyer phone number)

comment What lens should I get with a Canon 7D for portrait use?
@rfusca - you are right about controlling the environment - but moving the subject to another room, opening and closing windows or moving yourself around the subject (to get an angle with "better" background when you can't blur it away, for example) are all great ways for controlling the environment without better glass - after all it's the photographer that makes the image not the lens - obviously I agree that good equipment does make life much easier, just not that it's required.

comment Why is my camera showing a lot of stuck red and white pixels?
@Dreamager - if you know a Canon engineer with access to the firmware source code or you know how to take care of hot pixels in Canon entry level models I'd love to hear it - I don't claim I know everything - but saying two things are not connected is not debunking - after all it's just software and it could do whatever it wants before or after cleaning

comment Why is my camera showing a lot of stuck red and white pixels?
@Dreamager - when I've found the hot pixels I've started looking at older photos, those pixels have been there for weeks - and I did the cleaning thing without taking the lens off - so your cooling off theory is incorrect (if anything I've heated it up). now, I don't think the sensor is active during cleaning but the camera could map the bad pixels when coming out of cleaning mode after closing the shutter -- sorry but you are not debunking anything, you are just throwing around theories like the rest of us

comment What's the best way to hold a DSLR?
@Francesco - you don't hold a rifle for hours without support, but you do have to hit a small target that is a quite far away (and without electronic stabilization or vibration reduction) so you better learn to keep the rifle steady, also you don't have time to setup any support because the target is shooting at you.
