comment How many images can a Lightroom catalog really handle?
Interesting. Are you on Windows or Mac? And what do you mean by "a long time to completely start" ? 30 seconds? 5 minutes?

comment What software is focused on reviewing and organizing images?
From the website: "...a perfect companion to existing Digital Asset Management suites such as Adobe Lightroom or IDImager, helping users perform their initial accept/reject selection and rating much faster than before. Put in another way, you'll be done with reviewing/culling/rating with FPV Pro before Lightroom finished importing all the files and crunching the previews."

comment How to determine when I've lost interest in photography?
Have to agree here totally. Over the years I have repeatedly gone through similar up-and-down rhythm (currently going through a down-phase) - but in the end I always come back with more passion and vigor than before. I make sure to keep my mind busy doing completely different creative projects so that when I do come back, I will hopefully have new ideas borrowed from the other arts.

comment How do you set the Canon 5D to 16 bits vs. 8 bits…am shooting camera RAW?
AFAIK the 5D always shoots 14-bit RAW files, no exceptions. Only if you switch down to JPEG mode will you be able to shoot 8-bit images.

Because I believe it runs faster on Macs. It might still be interesting to know about Mac experiences (for other curious people) but the person sitting next to me is on a Mac and LR runs seemingly faster there.

ooooh that could be fun! hmmm but it says it works with catalog version 1.4.1. Will have to play around I guess ;)

comment Does using a camera with very high shutter actuations have any side effects?
@sebastien.b Nope, but his friend is semi-pro and I'm guessing is the one responsible for the first 3/4 million. The last 300k I'd attribute to him being a noob and over-shooting combined with shooting many performances where 1-5k images per session is the norm. As for the second camera it's a 5 year old PowerShot A640 and I use it exclusively for time-lapse projects i.e. it regularly shoots 10-100k images in a given period. I have several other time-lapse cameras with similarly high actuation counts.

I read through that thoroughly beforehand, however, nobody mentioned anything beyond "well, if it still works, it still works". I'm interested in knowing if this has any impact on image quality and whether we should consider buying new cameras. Also to note, the shutter life expectancy database is unreliable, anyone can anonymously type anything they want there, which is why for example the Nikon D5000 has 3 entries between 3 and 3.6 million.
