comment What do you do with your camera clock time in relation to time zones?
The reason I stopped setting my camera to local time is the difficulty of cleaning up after I inevitably forget to do it or leave it on some random time zone after returning home.

revised What is the easiest way to preserve old glass plate negatives?
this doesn't actually appear to be about developing, but rather scanning; however, please revert if I've misinterpreted

comment How do I know if I'm ready to turn professional?
Well, if you can't win, why try? At best, you'll just waste your time. But the larger point is, going pro is so difficult that if one is uncertain about it, then it's pretty likely to be a bad idea. One must be exceedingly driven and passionate in order to succeed.

comment When should one turn off their DSLR?
I suspect removing the battery gives you pretty negligible gain. For example, my D90 regularly goes several months on a single battery, with light use. Do you have any numbers?

comment Should I get DX for my APS-C camera, or FX lenses in case I upgrade to full-frame in the future?
The point there assumes that there are fields of view which are more desirable than others, and FX lenses are designed to deliver those fields of view on FX; on DX, the same lenses will give narrower fields of view. For an extreme example, you'd never put a 200mm lens on a compact camera: it would be far too long. The same effect happens with an FX lens on DX; it's just not so extreme.

comment Will an SSD provide a noticeable benefit for Lightroom over a traditional harddrive?
Measurable: almost certainly yes. But noticeable to you, the user, is what I assume you're really after. I took the liberty of editing, but if you really are asking about measurableness, please revert.

comment Where does the ¹/shutter speed = focal length rule for hand shake come from?
This isn't coherent enough to be an answer, but I'd assume two key factors are: (a) it's very simple and thus easily expressed, i.e., there is a bias towards 1/shutter rather than 2/shutter or 0.5/shutter; (b) it includes a factor based on the "shakiness" of an average hand. If people were steadier or sloppier, the rule would be different.
