comment If raising the center column makes tripods unstable, why can they be raised so high?
I'm saying it's a tool like any other. Use it when you need to, don't use it if you don't need it. It is not good, bad, evil, or wonderful. It's just a tool.

In addition to gaining a little extra height, the center column lets you adjust the height with a single control. You could get the tripod close to the right height with the center column half extended, then have roughly 6 inches of adjustment either direction. Readjusting height with the legs is far more clumsy.

comment How to mass convert RAW images into JPEG in Lightroom 3?
Refinement: In LR5 at least, there's an option in Export to target the same folder as the original. Between that and the "Add to This Catalog" checkbox, you can set up an export preset that basically does exactly what the OP asked for. The only thing it doesn't do for you is automatically delete the DNG files after a successful conversion.

comment Who has ownership of images taken for work in UK?
Though it is good to have this sort of question on this site, the fact that your requests for clarification were ignored doesn't make this forum a suitable alternative. Legally, you should be taking their silence as "No, you can't use these images personally," not "Maybe you can, maybe you can't." A large organization can drop a load of hurt on you in a copyright dispute, even if, in the end, you are adjudged to be in the right. You need the explicit permission of someone at your company with the legal authority to give it. Going without is foolish.

comment Is there a DSLR fixed lens camera?
Are you asking out of idle curiosity, or because you actually want such a thing?

comment Nude photography, any advice?
If you can't draw, go download a copy of DAZ Studio and play with the free content it comes with. More is available online. Don't sink money into paid content if all you want to learn is composition. Better to just play with the software's render camera: set the aspect ratio to the same as your camera's, then play around with focal length, most objects around, etc. You can compose a shot with a 24mm focal length, change to 50mm and recompose to enclose the same frame, and it'll look different!
