comment Why don't camera flashes use proprietary batteries?
Note also that alkaline AAs don't work well in cameras because of their high internal resistance; you really need NiMH, lithium primary cells, etc. for reasonable performance. Not sure if this is a flash issue too.

revised Why don't camera flashes use proprietary batteries?
spelling, grammar, spurious edit notation, add "nominally 1.5v"

I had a Pentax SLR that ran on 4 NiMH AA batteries.

@PhilipKendall, ask that as a separate follow-up question.

comment Is camera flash actually harmful to infants or newborns?
@James, I assume you're alluding to the McDonald's case. This was in fact not a frivolous lawsuit, despite its reputation as the "classic" example of such. One link (there are many): lectlaw.com/files/cur78.htm

comment How much does 1 mm get you in a wide-angle lens?
@dpollitt: (a) If you were replying to a specific portion of the question, you should say so. (b) "Clearly" is in the eye of the beholder. A newbie might not know that 1mm isn't much different. (c) Do you genuinely expect me to waste time digging up whether you voted to close? How is that even relevant?

@dpollitt, that's not my reading. IMO, Vlad seems to be asking (in part) if the extra width is worthwhile. No need for dupe lawyering here.
