comment What is a rolling shutter? When do I have to be aware of it?
My answer is consistent with what you pointed out on Wikipedia. Where do you think the contradiction is?

comment What is a rolling shutter? When do I have to be aware of it?
Did you read the part of my answer that says "it is analogous to the way a film cinema camera has a shutter that moves across the frame". I specifically pointed out this is equivalent to an effect on film cinema cameras and that that's where it got the name rolling shutter. So thanks for your "correction" I guess. The question was specifically in regards to DSLR cameras, which is why I primarily addressed rolling shutter effect in that type of camera.

comment Why does raising ISO make image quality appear lower even though my measurements suggest it shouldn't?
On that camera the rule holds true, for the most part, for the higher range of ISOs but not for the lower, indicating I guess that this sensor's sensitivity is so good that up until around 400 ISO, noise is not a factor that is limiting dynamic range, and the camera is able to obtain the full dynamic range its contrast curve setting is aiming for. Then the effect of the noise floor becomes felt from 400 ISO onwards, having its full effect from about 1600 ISO onwards. This indicates that sensor technology has evolved such that we can use up to 400 or even 800 ISO without worrying about noise.

If it is indoor or night time sports, forget about it!

comment Do nano coatings actually make a difference?
Having coatings vs no coatings at all makes large easily visible difference to flare in a wide range of shooting circumstances. It's just that we rarely ever shoot through glass with no coatings, because they are just so important for reducing flare and all lenses have them (even smartphones, kids/toy cameras, etc). As for Nikon's "nano coatings", that's just their particular name for their particular process - while it's fairly good compared to coatings from 30 years ago, comparing this to other companies' coatings will show much less of a contrast than when compared to no coating.

comment Do nano coatings actually make a difference?
Can you clarify, are you asking about the difference between Nikon's "nano coatings" and other brands' equivalent coatings? Or the difference between having coatings and having none at all? Because they'd be quite different questions.

comment Should 8x10" prints be actually 8x10?
20x25cm would be around 7 7/8 inches by 9 13/16 inches. But I believe even in Europe the actual standard is supposed to be 8x10 inches, and 20x25cm is just their approximation in a more familiar unit. In other words, it should be 20.32 by 25.4 cm.

comment What is the meaning of W and T on a camera's zoom buttons?
The name "telephoto" includes "tele", which means "far off" or "over a distance" so it literally means "long distance photography"

comment Pistol grip vs ball head
My process for using a pistol grip: Grasp pistol, gently squeeze, move head into the desired location. Gently release pistol. Head moves as you release the grip and suddenly everything is crooked. Rinse and repeat.

comment Are canvas prints lower resolution than poster prints?
This is something that could vary between labs because they may use different papers/canvas or different print techniques - did you have a particular place in mind?

Nice pic, by the way
