comment Noise Issue / Canon 5D Mark II
Haven't heard of any RRGB or RGBB sensors, they all tend to be RGGB (because human eye is most sensitive to green).

comment Can video shooting have a negative effect on a DSLR sensor?
Heat issues are already covered by Should I be concerned about sensor heat and the development of hot pixels?

comment How can I calculate the effect of non-TTL flash on exposure?
+1; it's probably worth noting that this calculation applies to direct bare flash, and that in case of off-camera camera flash, subject distance is measured from flash (not camera)

comment How can I know what speed card to get for my camera?
Note that this method of measuring requires already having access to a card that is fastest you'd consider buying.

comment What are the drawbacks of an extender (wide or teleconverter)?
Wow, those must be really crappy UV filters, even the lowest-scoring UV-filter in Lenstip test had transmission rate close to 90% (but a loss of one stop would be 50% transmission)

comment What are the drawbacks of an extender (wide or teleconverter)?
Why would a wide extender reduce light?

comment What Hot Shoe Accessories are Available for a Canon T3 / EOS 1100D?
Does it have to be two-way communication, or would reacting to flash signal suffice?

comment Is it common to have problems with soft images on a 7D?
The fact that some cameras don't have problems with softness does not automatically imply that none of them do. Anyhow... Since you have learned the camera, I'm sure you'd have some clues on the intricacies a new user might be caught by and some hints on how to get accustomed. Those would be so much more useful than just suggesting to change cameras. Thanks!

comment Which filter do I need to perform NDVI measurements?
No papers... Just the curiosity for IR photography has shown me that the resulting images tend to be red-grayish or gray depending on chosen white balance (meaning the IR light affects all color channels, but perhaps red stronger than others).

comment Which filter do I need to perform NDVI measurements?
I have used the Olympus C-2020Z (known for its hot mirror doing a lousy job when blocking IR) with a Hoya R72 and my experience is that IR affects all color channels. So when letting in red+IR, you'd have IR in blue/green channels and red visible light+IR in red channel. By subtracting average of other channels from red (perhaps multiplied by some factor found experimentally through testing with IR only), you'd get approximate value for visible light only.

comment How to manage model information?
Oh gosh, some of us only wish we had problems like yours. Would you share your secrets?

comment Why is my Nikon d3100 with 18/55 lens suddenly fuzzy?
possible duplicate of sharpness lost in viewfinder

comment Dragging image window in CS6 applies temporary saturation boost?
My guess is that color profile is not applied during dragging.

comment Tulip Flower Lens Hood for Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8 D?
@Rene those hoods have a straight front edge (so they are not tulip hoods)

comment How to choose an easy-to-use camera that performs good in low-light?
A very similar question with $200 lower budget: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/22952/…

comment Are there any tetherable compact cameras?
Are you sure it was a compact camera? Could you tell us the model number? It seems Kodak EasyShare line of digital compacts came out much later, in 2001.

comment Why there is no Canon 50mm *IS* lens?
The 50mm wide open is obviously more sensitive to change in focus (due to movement) than the slower zoom. Did you use the same aperture on both? Did you make several shots with both to account for the odd failures? Flash duration is much quicker than 1/200 ms (especially at less than full power), and should freeze movement regardless the shutter speed.

comment Pentax P-TTL: Why and when does underexposure occur and what can I do?
@DragonLord do you have any examples of a failed exposure? Having EXIF info intact would help analyze what went wrong.

comment Why do my Cybersyncs fire my Sunpak flashes with the test button, but not the shutter release?
What's the shutter speed on the shots that flashes skip? Perhaps it's faster than max sync speed (1/200 on the 5D mkII), this would require High Speed Sync - which neither your triggers nor flashes support.

comment Which wide-angle lens for Nikon?
Wide angle lenses tend to be expensive, so with a moderate budget you could also consider renting one just for the trip.
