comment How do I get more in focus when aperture is already quite small?
The focus point isn't the center of the in-focus area: the focus point is closer to the near point than the far point. So focus a little towards the front of the subject, instead of the exact middle. See e.g. the diagrams at dofmaster.com/dofjs.html

comment Which lens to buy for capturing hot air balloons?
@dpollitt I agree the 10-22 is a good lens... but it's also $800, and not everyone likes the wide-angle perspective. I've taken some of my favorite photos with that lens, but if you're not already spending a lot of time at 18mm with your kit lens, buying an ultrawide is probably a mistake (renting for a special occasion, as the OP is planning, is a fine idea).

comment Are there adapters that allow autofocus & electronic control?
Cool! I didn't know there was an EF to anything available! Thanks for that link.

comment Which DSLR for a total beginner?
What is it about "simple digital cameras" that isn't satisfying to you? Moving through menus rather than having dials to turn? Being able to fit the camera into your pocket? Slow response times? Not getting dust on the sensor because you can't change lenses? If you can provide more about what doesn't work for you, we can point you to the right class of camera (bridge, mirrorless, or even a film SLR might fit you better than a DSLR).

comment 50mm vs 85mm for portraits on a crop sensor?
I don't know what your budget looks like, but you can get both the Canon 50/1.8 and 85/1.8 for around $500. While not pocket change, they're both relatively cheap in the world of lenses. (Another way to look at it: if you decide to get the 85mm f/1.8 you can tack on the 50mm f/1.8 for only 25% more.)

comment Fast, Unlimited Photo/Video Hosting
Do you need a pre-setup site, or are you willing to set up software yourself (e.g. pick a web hosting company and run a Gallery instance)?
