comment Is the Nikon D5100 really better than the D200?
@EsaPaulasto the D200 has very good high speed and low light performance, far superior to entry level cameras like the D5100 (and even newer entry level cameras). That's part of what you pay for in a professional grade camera. The main (maybe only) benefit of the D5100 next to its low weight and small size (which to serious photographers are drawbacks) is that you get "more megapixels" and maybe need less post processing to make your images "pop". And that's relative. Those "more megapixels" do nothing unless your pixel peeping.

comment How does using a 2x teleconverter with 70-200 f/2.8 affect use?
a 2x TC while fitted does increase minimum focal length... And of course it increases cost and weight, though not as much by far as purchasing a 100-400 (or whatever).

comment Can an SLR Mounting rim made of metal gather rust?
@JohannesD as the camera has to be kept dry anyway for other reasons, why incur the extra cost by using stainless?

comment Does a greater optical zoom range on a lens mean less image quality?
"Canon could make a 28-300mm lens that was as good or better than the 300 f/4 prime, but it would be ten times the price" and 10 times the weight...

comment I'm getting started in photography and taking a photography class — what camera should I buy?
Semi pro starts at about the level of a D300s or whatever has since replaced it Nikon's lineup. A D90 is a better choice than a Canon 550D as it is lacks fewer of the more important features you'll want once you've learned a bit. But it's definitely right up there in the lower end of the consumer spectrum.

comment What are the pixel needs for huge prints?
it also depends on the quality of the image. The more blurry it is, the less data you need to present an accurate reproduction.

comment Can film be considered to have infinite resolution as opposed to digital sensors?
and to complicate matters further, the actual grain size doesn't say everything, grain shape and distribution also matter.

comment How could film compact cameras set exposure?
A large number of compacts had no way of metering anything. They had a lens fixed at infinity, a preset aperture, and a preset shutterspeed, and that's it. The only way to influence exposure was to put in film with a different DIN/ISO rating. I had several when I first started out. And there were many others that had no meter, allowing aperture and shutter speed to be set manually using an external meter to determine values.

comment Do iPhoto and Picasa let me view photos at a 1:1 pixel ratio?
completely useless comparison. As long as they look the same at the size you're interested in, how they look when pixel peeking is utterly irrelevant.

comment How can I get the top people of a camera brand to listen to a design idea I have?
Not knowing you I don't know your credentials. I do know that companies receive scores of silly ideas and many will as a result just throw out ALL ideas coming in from the outside sent by well intentioned individuals. It's just not worth their time weeding through the piles of manure to find the few small gems. So you've reinvented the wheel twice, what makes you think you've not done the same again, except this time the idea was discarded as being impractical or useless?

any larger than trivial company will have all email to its execs routed through a team of screeners to filter out the fluff. And silly suggestions from end users claiming to have found a brilliant new feature are fluff, large companies get thousands of those a week. While you may think Jobs directly interacted with customers, most likely it was a team of people assigned just for that writing those replies and just signing his name in the vast majority of cases. People like that are far too busy to spend their days chatting with end users.

heck, direct brain control would mean more missed and badly exposed shots for most people as the camera compensates for their errors.

spot on. First paragraph says it all.
