answered In a monitor for photographic work how significant is 3% additional sRGB coverage?

comment What might cause horizontal artifacts in Lightroom after import?
Please try with a different RAW conversion software and see if it does the same, posting a screenshot. There are free RAW editors including RawTherapee and DarkTable. This is just to troubleshoot what may have happened, I'm not saying you have to switch from Lightroom permanently.

comment What determines the fastest shutter speed for an electronic shutter?
It will be determined by the technology used. Live view mode is traditionally quite limited due to the reasons given above, but as Matt Grum pointed out some sensors have a global shutter feature which is why you get that really fast speed. No global shutter = very slow, global shutter = very fast. With the rise of electronic viewfinders, live view mode as default, PDAF that can work in live view mode, mirrorless, and so on, global shutters are a logical step to avoid the double-closing shutter action (or indeed the need for a physical shutter).

comment Is it possible to save the ISO, aperture, and other settings along with the image?
Photo viewers/managers will do a better job at showing you metadata than editors like Photoshop. If you have something like bridge, picasa, or whatever you use to manage photos (even Windows' build-in file manager if you have the folder in photo mode), you should be able to do things like sort by aperture, or by shutter speed, and things like that, allowing you to do something like, select all photos I shot with my 18-70mm lens, or all photos I shot where the flash fired.

comment Photographing people at work: What is your workflow for being invited or getting access?
To be entirely honest, I think those sample photos you've provided aren't all that great. You could do better, with some better framing. The camera angle on that blacksmith is particularly un-inventive, and the processing of that blown-out fire behind him looks messy. Check out this or this the first is more polished but second has a nice dramatic framing.

comment What are the advantages or disadvantages of a back illuminated CMOS sensor?
The only significant disadvantage is cost, because they're harder to manufacture. Thus they are only used on tiny sensors where the pixels would actually benefit from it by a meaningful amount, such as smartphone sensors.

comment Why is my Sony A57 creating low res JPGs?
Presumably you mean 7MB, not 7KB. 7MB actually seems reasonable for a 16 megapixel JPEG. Ultimately however, you need to look up the pixel dimensions to find if it's shooting the right resolution, because the file size alone doesn't tell you with certainty.

TIL, thanks. Will edit.

Are there CMOS sensors with global shutters? I'm aware that CCDs do this but wasn't aware of CMOS sensors doing it.
