comment How to create an eye-path?
I would argue that the typical non-Hebrew, non-Arabic, non-Mandarin eye will go from left to right. Those other cultures read in a different direction, so they could approach the image from a different direction.

comment How do current home photo printers compare to prints from a studio?
@ysap-- that's pretty miserable. Did they at least offer to reprint, or a refund?

comment What is the statistical distribution of sensor noise?
Which noise reduction algorithms are you talking about? I know that Non-Local Means (Buades, 2004), Total Variation (ROF, 98), and anisotropic diffusion (perona and malik) don't. Or are there some commercial packages that don't have published algorithm's that you're talking about?

comment What is the 'Diagonal Method' and should I use it instead of 'The Rule of Thirds?'
@labnut-- that paper saddens me. The idea of using a computationally derived formula for composition as a foundation of judging the 'goodness' of a photo smacks a bit too much of serious conformity. I guess they haven't gotten around to thinking about composition as a means of telling a story, as can be evidenced by the top of figure 7. To me, (a) tells a story of a lonely ship, while (c), their preferred image, is a bit more intimate and immediate to the crew. I'm glad I'm still allowed to say 'to each their own.'

comment Good economy photo printer for 200+ people/night, low operating costs
If ink is the major cost here, is it possible to go into the pro lines? SOmething where the printer is on the order of $3k or the like, but ink lasts (comparatively) forever?

comment Should I shoot underexposed photos?
ETTR = Expose to the right, basically increasing the number of photons coming in, for the exact opposite reason that @duality_'s mentor suggested. It's easier to get back detail from highlights in a digital image than from noise in the background of a black image. See luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/expose-right.shtml

comment What printer should I get to replace an epson r800?
@mattdm, I have indeed already gone with a decision, the canon 9500 mark II. It is a very specialized question, so if you can suggest a more generalized title, I'm all for it. But that list of requirements isn't so specialized, I think. I'd say that those are really the minimum for any photo printer.

comment TV show wants to use a photograph — what should I charge?
I'll ge the ball rolling with some maybe-not-pertinent questions. What kind of show is it, meaning what's their likely budget for this kind of thing? They're probably hoping to get away with something like $5, but if the show has 5 million viewers a week, they could probably part with more.

comment Is the smaller mass and bulk of Micro Four Thirds gear vs. APS-C DSLRs meaningful?
Am I right in assuming you mean the size difference of the gear itself? It seems that these initial answers assume you're talking about sensor size, not lugging-around weight.

comment Really? Why does a Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 cost almost $2,000?
Sure, the design is different-- but will the final results be that much different? Like I said, I'll wait until I see the reviews. So maybe the better comparison is with the Zeiss 35mm f/2? Sure, they're not considered to be in the same league (everyone loves a Zeiss!) but again, how much does the name cost?
