comment Why is the image size different in portrait and landscape mode?
Is portrait/landscape mode the only difference? If you're using another lens as well, I'd imagine lens correction having a role here.

comment How useful is the top LCD screen on a DSLR?
And there are plenty of models where LCD cannot be tilted even without water protection cover.

comment What are some other terms for a 3/4 shot?
The Wikipedia article has a disclaimer regarding missing references, so it could be just one editor's opinion. There is a historical reason why the term developed in cinematic context, but as a notion of composition I don't see why these terms couldn't be used in photography (especially 3/4).

comment Is there any difference in image stabilization in smartphone camera and DSLR camera?
@dpollitt any references? Apple seems to claim using both digital and optical stabilization for photography on its iPhone 6 camera page: iPhone 6 Plus introduces optical image stabilization that works with the A8 chip, gyroscope, and M8 motion coprocessor to measure motion data and provide precise lens movement to compensate for hand shake in lower light. The fusing together of long- and short-exposure images also helps to reduce subject motion. This unique integration of hardware and software delivers beautiful low-light photos.

comment Is there any difference in image stabilization in smartphone camera and DSLR camera?
Smartphone lenses certainly aren't much wider than those Sony/Canon 10-18mm APS-C zooms, e.g. iPhone lenses have even tighter field of view than the long end of those zooms. Canon does offer wide stabilized primes (24mm, 28mm, 35mm), so perhaps it's not that similar to Nikon regarding the topic here.

Actually the Nikon's lineup does include a 16-35 FX VR wide zoom lens. Canon and Sony provide stabilization on APS-C zooms with wider end at 10mm. Pentax stabilizes any lens that mounts. So the feature is available on DSLRs for even wider focal lengths, and considered useful in situations where subject allows for a longer exposure.

comment How can I compare 'super-zoom' lenses to make up my mind which one I should buy?
I don't think there are any f/2.8 superzoom lenses. If you are going to suggest another category, why would you exclude prime lenses?

comment What is bokeh, exactly?
Does the term refer strictly to quality of background blur, or would foreground blur also qualify?
