comment Why does the “As Shot White XY” metadata tag change even when WB is set manually?
Are there multiple light sources? The ratio of reflectance from different sources will change when shooting a different scene, and this will affect WB.

comment Can I use aperture ring of Pentax FA lens in aperture priority mode?
@HenryJackson To get a real aperture ring that can be used in Av mode, you should get an older, non-A lens (e.g. something from SMC-M series). With such lens, the aperture selected will be in effect immediately. A Lensbaby with Sweet 35 Optics would also work similarly.

comment Why are there limitations to the upper limit of exposure time in digital cameras?
@HenryJackson it's very much possible the metering will fail, that's why you have to take the test shot and check its histogram.

comment How do I meter for long exposures (10+ minutes)?
You might want to avoid ISO125 in favor of ISO160 on a 5dmkII - see the noise test by Peter Troeger - vimeo.com/20239453

@whuber thanks, of course; fixed

comment How do I get this fashion photograph effect?
Wouldn't a lens hood leave slightly curved shadow?

comment How do I get this fashion photograph effect?
I'd say the shadows look exactly like a pop-up flash in portrait orientation.

comment What are common beginner mistakes in photography?
@Genius - could you name a couple of examples, and why do you think they play only for luck? @jhocking - why would you think about what would make a photo "best one" only during picking, but not on the scene? Will you even shoot the best one to pick it later? Should you make 50 sculptures and THEN pick the best one each time? In context of the question, when I see a beginner thinking and preparing too much, I'll make sure to edit my answer.

comment What are common beginner mistakes in photography?
I have to agree with @JohnCavan. The first photo would have been quite impressive had the flash been zoomed/snooted/shielded keeping it from spilling on the pavement. Certainly more interesting than the second one where the light sky grabs attention away from faces.

comment Why don't today's lenses come with a polarizer by default?
Many lens hoods cannot be used with significantly larger filters :(

comment ND Filter not Dense enough - How do I get long exposures in very bright situations, where my ND filter isn't enough?
For a sharper image, you'll need a very thin material having a hole with round edges and size optimal for the distance from sensor. Try searching for "Lenox pinhole" in Flickr and see if the pictures are sharp enough for you.

comment How to create an eye-path?
How is the spiral related to creating a path - are eyes expected to naturally move along the spiral? To me, it seems like the linked page is talking about placement of main points, not how (or if?) they would form a path for eye.

You configure the EyeFi to connect to the same network as your laptop.

comment How do I reduce the light from the pop-up flash as a wireless controller on a Canon 7D?
@cmason, please improve your answer admitting the low-power flash during exposure or provide proof that it CAN be switched off completely

comment Are there any downsides to using a good-quality UV filter?
Some of my lenses, purchased second-hand, were actually cheaper than a decent UV filter for them would be :)

comment What is the Rule of Odds?
@ysap Haven't voted myself, but I can see that only the simplest part of the question has been answered, and it shouldn't be considered odd for a person wanting to hear other perspectives about something he read from a (possibly confusing) book.

comment What's the best way to scan in hundreds of pictures?
Why would anyone use such a small format at all? Cataloging might be an answer. The contact prints can be made without using an enlarger and could have been used to select images for larger prints.

comment What's the best way to scan in hundreds of pictures?
Well, I did not know about the grainy part :) 60x60mm (i.e. roughly 2½") squares are a common square format shot on 120/220, so I suspected you'd have contact prints from those.

comment What's the best way to scan in hundreds of pictures?
@BillyONeal yes, I meant that same "110 film" you are linking to (the Wikipedia article also links to the older roll-format film with same number).
