comment monopod or tri pod is best for daily usage
We need a lot more information before we can answer this. What kind of photography do you have in mind? Landscape? Street? What lenses do you use? And so on.

comment Why are big apertures used for landscape photography?
You are perhaps confusing 'big aperture' with 'high F-number', which are not the same thing.

comment Dropped Nikon D50: auto focus not working
If it can be fixed, the only people who can do it will be Nikon or an authorised repair shop. Though given that the D50 is getting on a bit, it will probably cost more than the camera is worth.

comment Is it possible to take a five minute exposure with a Canon Powershot SX 160 IS?
Short answer - no. The longest available exposure with this camera is 15 seconds.

comment Why would D90 preset white balance be no good
Your question is very unclear - please rephrase.

comment Can a ghostlike image be caused by a overlap with previous frame on an SD card?
@hugo look just below centre, to the left - there is a 'ghost image' in the shot of what looks like a child and his shadow.

comment What are good things I can use as background roll supports?
How about a broom handle? Cheap, readily available and strong.

comment Waterproof Long Distance Wireless Shutter Release?
@jsnow if you take a look at the manufacturer site they have quite a range of radio triggers - the first one I clicked has an operating range of -20°C to 50°C. vellogear.com/listing?category=17772

comment Waterproof Long Distance Wireless Shutter Release?
Dimensions are on the B&H site under the specifications tab. I'm not sure what the operating temperature range is. You might have to do a bit of insulation work - wrap it in cotton wool :)

comment Waterproof Long Distance Wireless Shutter Release?
You're going to need a radio release rather than IR. Something like: bhphotovideo.com/c/product/749996-REG/… . As for waterproofing, a ziploc bag will work wonders! Or you could get a pouch designed for using cameras/phones underwater.

comment Why my camera shots have a dark area?
Ah, then it is likely the shutter. It will need servicing.

comment Why my camera shots have a dark area?
So he does, I missed that comment. It could still be the mirror being out of position, not throwing the image onto the pentaprism properly perhaps? There is pretty much nothing else it could be, it's too straight to be something in the lens I believe.

comment is there auto-exposure adjustment button in M mode on Sony A7?
Your question does not match the title. Auto exposure adjustment and auto exposure lock are two different things, and neither really apply in M mode on most cameras. In M mode, you set the exposure yourself. It won't change unless you tell it to, so both AE compensation and lock are moot.

Shutter curtain getting stuck I would think.
