comment Does this Camera Lens to Mobile phone camera interface exist?
It seems to be real but it also seems to be a way to get the bulk of an entry-level DSLR or CSC camera while losing any auto-focus, metering or VR features of your old DSLR lenses.

comment Which Nikon DSLRs have an autofocus motor in camera body?
You have listed some older DSLRs there but missed out the D50 which has an AF motor in the body.

comment Use Nikon D3100 in snow
See Flickr search for a practical answer. Plenty of people have used a D3100 at the top of that mountain.

comment How does a DX-format sensor support FX lenses?
A few DX bodies can auto-focus FX lenses that lack a focus motor - the body incorporates a focus motor and has a mechanical AF coupling in the lens mount. The early entry-level D50 can do that. Higher end DX cameras like the D7000 can too. Entry-level bodies like the D3200 can't. You can still use older AF lenses in manual-focus mode (obviously undesirable for many photographers).

comment What features should I be looking for a budget (under $300) camera for real estate?
It's worth mentioning that some descriptions of lenses on point & shoot cameras state the "35mm equivalent" focal length rather than the real focal length. So an actual 8mm lens on a P&S camera might be advertised as "28mm" (35mm / "full-frame" equivalent).

comment How to clean the focusing system?
+1 for rocket blower. In my experience, blowers with brushes are usually a menace, not a help.

comment Micro four thirds lens and camera compatibility
Isn't there a difference between MFT manufacturers in whether the image stabilisation is in the body or the lens? Some MFT lens/body combinations could have no IS?

Are you looking for an Arca-Swiss style clamp that works in a similar way to the Manfrotto RC2 clamp?
