I am a computer geek with interest in Java, C#, and Apache Solr, business models, visualization and whatever else catches my fancy.

I wrote a book on Solr: http://bit.ly/ZPSSt4 and maintain useful Solr resources at http://www.solr-start.com/

I don't think I will have ability to setup the offside flashes (especially if there are many rooms), but the microphone hint is very appreciated.

comment How can I backup my RAW photos while travelling without Internet access?
@SteveRoss Aren't you out by a 0? I am getting 10000 (Mb) / 3600 (images) = 2.7 (Mb) by image. I think the real math is more like ~300 RAW images into one iPad. And I can fill 16Gb memory card on my T3i in a couple of good days.

All the Nikon references are probably because I mentioned having one currently (and therefore keeping the lens). But it is a good reminder in general. Thanks.

If I use RAW format, does that help with light? My understanding is that RAW captures more light then makes it into JPEG. E.g. Could I underexpose the shot and then add exposure in Lightroom to compensate for slower lens? I would love to get away with single zoom lens and not have to switch.

comment Help motivate me to use my SLR's manual mode
I believe that will then do auto-exposure compensation every time, so the pictures will not be fully 'compatible'. And you may get slightly different focus points with autofocus.
