You mean D90, don't you? You have tagged the question as nikon-d90.

comment What are the specific uses of different ways to convert to black-and-white?
Hi Jon, i don't think i had a specific use case in mind when i asked the question. Intent of the question was more generic than that. It is to know if there are specific use cases when one over the other is preferred.

comment How do I best take pictures of paintings?
I don't think you lens choice is very good for paintings. As ahockley explained you need to avoid direct reflection. Which means light can not be in camera's "family of angle" (region of direct reflection). A wide lens has wide family of angle. A longer lens will be ideal in this case.

comment How to request for hotel rooms with excellent view and rooftop access
Instead of banking on hotel rooftop, i'd have searched flickr etc. to get some idea of good places to take pictures from.

I don't know if it is camera specific, but i'd also like to see "Focus Position" and "Focus Distance". Helps me when reviewing pics for bad focus issues.

comment Why do bright red flowers end up without details?
Andrei, MEF+JPG is actually a waste of space if you use NX2 for post-processing. NEF records your camera setting. NX2 will then read it and produce the same jpeg that you get from camera.

comment How do I properly do shadowless product photos?
In my opinion don't make it complete shadow less. A bit of soft shadow at the base gives object a place to stand. They look floating in air otherwise.
