revised What low-cost non-fisheye wide angle lenses are available for Canon and how do they compare?
swapped less-than symbol for words as a bug in this site's code hides text after that symbol

comment How can I get a trusted hash for a Nikon D3100 firmware update file?
It occurred to me, after I posted my answer, that you're after the hash of the .bin file, not a way of calculating one from an arbitrary file. Is this the case? I'd like to think that the bin file was signed in some way which the phone checked before proceeding with installation, but that's not a certainty, and even that would only protect against accidental changes.

comment Should a fisheye converter be sharp when I look through it directly?
Why do you care? What's it like when you attach it to your camera and take photographs with it?

comment how to get the name of this shooting technique?
Cameras record light; cigarettes emit light. How is there room for doubt?

@mattdm If taste were relevant HDR would also be off-topic!

comment What tools do you recommend for creating HDR images?
No-one mentioned Oloneo because he specifically requested free software.

comment How to reduce size of a jpeg image in Photoshop?
This is the oddest question I've seen for some time. The questioner's profile is also very amusing. I don't understand some people.

comment What causes blurred/non-sharp images taken of stable objects?
Then this question is pointless! Q) What causes blur? A) Lots of things.

comment Can anyone recommend *freeware* to reduce motion blur by deconvolution?
Some quality software has a price. A lot of really poor software is expensive, whereas there is both high and low quality free software .Android, Eclipse, Paint.net, Ubuntu and Angry birds are all free, and quality software. Some of them even provide you with the source code so you can learn and improve it yourself.

comment (Why) Do Photographers Work Alone?
Same as any art, not just visual. How many symphonies are composed by more than one person, how many films directed, books written, etc etc.

comment How to remember to change settings when I pick up my camera?
Same here. I do it as I'm replacing the battery (having charged it) to some sensible defaults: Raw, iso 200, Av mode, auto White balance, Aperture f8, and I check that the lens has auto focus selected and IS enabled. I do this before each session too. Nothing worse than finding you've left it on manual focus, or jpeg mode and burned in a white balance you then have to deal with.
