comment What are the advantages of shooting in a proprietary RAW format over DNG?
No it would not. You cannot assume that the standard is implemented correctly across all camera conversions. You need to test each one.

Well, for one it would double their testing workload, since the number of formats per camera is doubled.

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.

spelling, grammar, spurious edit notation, add "nominally 1.5v"

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

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
