comment Unable to Install Canon Solution Disc
There's no need to fear removing the card. SD sockets typically have a 10,000 insertion cycle rating: you could remove and replace the card 2-3 times per day, every day, for 10 years before you'd expect to see a problem. You'll probably wear out the shutter long before you wear out the card connector.

comment Camera for my daughter studying GCSE photography
If she's taking a photography class, or even if she isn't but there's one available, the instructor would be an excellent person to ask for this kind of advice.

comment Is the attached digital camera on the top have the same magnification than visible in eyepiece?
It depends on your setup. You can obviously hold a small smartphone camera up to the eyepiece, which is more or less what the author of your linked page did, or you can use a camera designed for microscopy, or you can use a DSLR with an adapter.

comment What are resources for a report on digital vs film cameras?
What part of "digital vs. film" interests you? Are you wondering about resolution and/or dynamic range of film compared to digital sensors? Environmental impacts? Cost? Impact on news media?

comment Why Isn't This Photograph Pin Sharp?
If you were trying to keep the trees sharp and everything else soft, why did you focus at a spot 115m short of the trees? That and perhaps the IS issue are the most likely explanation for the softness you're seeing. If you focus on the trees and the trees still aren't sharp, then you have to consider camera movement and perhaps lens adjustment.

I doubt that wind was a factor in this case, unless it was blowing the camera around. You'd need a pretty stiff breeze to get those tree trunks to move.

@Jasmine I understood small high wing airplane to mean something like a Cessna, not a model.

comment How to interpret a histogram to know whether the photo is under or over exposed?
Why do you say the histogram will look wrong? If the photographer understands what the histogram is telling her, and if this is the kind of image she's trying to create, the histogram will look (and will be) correct in the context of the photog's goal.

comment Why is it called ISO “speed”?
This just reiterates with less clarity what two previous answers have said.

comment video images vs. burst images
That's a good question: why can't you? Or, why don't you? If you take video, you can always grab frames from your clips later. You just have to be aware that you'll get images with much lower resolution, and you'll probably also have less control over camera settings like aperture and shutter speed.
