comment How do old lenses get dented just on the filter ring?
"Tin foil" is made of aluminium these days. Both aluminium and tin are quite a bit softer than brass. The reason it's easy to bend tin foil is mainly how thin it is. Brass is harder than most metals, including copper and gold, and only a little softer than platinum and iron. As far as materials for camera construction go, any metal will be soft enough to dent easily, especially at its thinnest point. Steel or cast iron are the only metals that are somewhat hard, and that's only because they are an alloy of iron and carbon, carbon being a non-metal and the hardest material there is.

comment What is the math behind white-balance, and how to choose it?
Cameras and software can't determine correct white balance, they can only take a guess. To determine correct white balance you need to have measured a white or grey reference under the same light source.

Probably off-topic for this site as it's not so much about photography as it is about creating a mathematical algorithm.

comment How does the cable release work without a battery?
Hehe this is more of an electronics question than a photography question, but interesting nonetheless.

comment What makes a camera an “SLR”?
One person's side effect is another person's main goal. I would think that for the most part, having interchangeable lenses is not a nice-to-have bonus but a central feature of an SLR, while removing parallax error is the side bonus. But others may indeed see it differently.
