comment What do the scene modes actually do?
The manual describes what each setting does in terms of its effects, but not in terms of specifc camera settings. That may be because the algorithms used to determine settings for scene modes are more complex than just small aperture, no flash; IOW they may be more than simple presets and an accurate description could go on for several pages. Also the target audience for the scene modes is people who don't really want to get involved in the specific parameters.

comment What factors affect the dynamic range of a sensor?
Perhaps the question should be rephrased then to instead consider what one can do to take best advantage of the dynamic range provided by a sensor? There's nothing you can do to increase the efficiency of the photosites in the sensor (well, maybe shooting exclusively in arctic conditions), but how to work with the dynamic range you've got seems like a more relevant question.

comment What factors affect the dynamic range of a sensor?
This is a good question, but I'm not sure whether it's really on topic here. It's probably more about semiconductor fabrication than the actual practice of photography.

comment Why only camcorders that cost too much can record high fps (freeze motion)?
Again, at high shutter speeds like 1/4000, the two curtains form a narrow slit that only allows a small portion (1/20, in the example) of the sensor to be exposed at any time. That slit travels across the sensor, taking 1/200s. A point on the sensor receives light only when the slit passes over it, so is only exposed for 1/20 of the total 1/200s travel time. 1/20 of 1/200s is 1/4000s.

comment Does a 35mm DX lens, mounted on a crop body, have the same field of view as a 35mm FX lens mounted on a full frame camera?
@Olivier I'd vote for your answer if you get around to finishing it. I agree that an illustration would help, but I don't have tools to make one at the moment.
