comment 50mm and 100mm macro lenses difference at the minimum focus distance?
A 15cm working distance for a 100mm macro lens is about standard. 50mm is usually about 10cm.

comment adding nameplates or property tags to gear
I'm struggling to see how a label that is easily removable enough to allow you to sell the item it's attached to someday would act as a theft deterrent...

comment Why are my Sony DSC H300's images good on the camera, but poor on the computer?
What do you mean by 'picture quality'? It is blurred, grainy, what?

comment What can I do to protect a bulbous lens when no lens cap is available?
If you can't find that some that quite fits, you could glue some foam rubber inside to make it snug.

comment What are the most essential modifiers for shaping light?
Some example photos would be good. It may well be you are seeing examples of light painting: a long exposure in a dark room, with the object being lit with a flashlight in specific areas.

comment Why does my Sony Alpha 77 II sometimes change to a lower resolution on its own?
And as the TC function is controlled by a single button, which is itself right next to the Fn button, it's probably quite easy to press it inadvertently.

comment Why does my Sony Alpha 77 II sometimes change to a lower resolution on its own?
absolutely. But it may be an option. I'm just trying to narrow down possibilities.

Do the lower resolution pictures have anything in common? Were they all taken in a scene mode, or perhaps all taken in continuous shooting mode? I wonder if the camera lowers the resolution to optimise write speed in burst mode.

comment Anyone know how to save a Photoshop file, naming it from metadata or exifdata?
You'd probably need to script it.

They are almost certainly using it to take video.

comment How can I find the Nikon D5300 wifi WPA2 password?
IIRC, connecting via WPS removes the need to enter a password. It just requires the connecting app to attempt a WPS connection within a short time after activating WPS on the camera.
