comment What does it mean when 'HD' is printed on a lens?
Manufacturers have all sorts of designations on their lenses. Can you tell us what lens you're talking about? Make and model would be best. You haven't even told us whether you're talking about a DSLR lens or something on a point and shoot or something entirely different.

comment How do I reflash the firmware on an bricked action camera's chip?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about updating firmware in an embedded system that happens to be an action (i.e. video) camera. None of that is relevant to still photography.

comment Is there any point in photographing directly to black & white?
Smaller file size is a real benefit. Photographs are useful for more than just art -- a camera can be used to record every page of a book, every person or object moving through some process, etc., and B&W JPEGs may be all that's required, especially if it means packing 2-3x more images onto a memory card.

comment Is there a list of lenses commonly considered “significant” for each mount?
@motoDrizzt Without a more concrete definition of significant, the question is both unclear and subjective. How can one know that a list of lenses includes only "significant" lenses without having an opinion about what that word means and which lenses meet the criteria? Even with a more concrete definition, the question is still too broad and possibly a request for resources. Congrats, you've managed to hit 4 out of 5 close reasons!

comment Can cameras set exposure in more precise increments than third stops in automatic exposure mode?
Be sure to use a reliable continuous light source, like sunlight, when trying this. If you do it under fluorescent lights the variation you see will most likely be due to the lights flickering.

comment Buying a Nikon DSLR Camera body only, is a 35mm and 55-200mm lens enough for most cases?
This phrase a shallower depth of field at the low f stops is a little misleading. I know you mean that the 35mm f/1.8 can produce images with less depth of field because it can go to lower f stops, but someone new to photography might reasonably think you meant that DOF is less on the 35mm prime than at the same aperture on a kit lens.

comment is the delta between a Canon 7d and a Canon 6d worth a) the upgrade price and b) the perks I will lose on the 7d
I started answering several times, but it became clear that any answer will be heavily infused with opinion. You seem to know what the differences are, so think about what you want/need. Know that the 6D came out in 2012 and there have been rumors of an update for some time now. If you're on the fence, rent a 6D and try it out for a week.
