comment What do I need in a lens for studio portrait photography?
Why do you wish for a 7D? AFAIK, the main advantages of that over the 60D is better autofocus and weather sealing. The better autofocus does not make much of a difference since the subject is not fast moving. And weather sealing is completely irrelevant for studio photography. Image quality should be the same, afaik.

comment Is there a way to determine if photo was taken at sunrise or sunset?
I added a quote from Scott Kelby which I think is probably my own source of this piece of information.

@PhilipKendall - of course you cannot say anything for sure. But a completely still body of water can indicate that there is a probability that it is taken at dawn.

comment How do I correctly expose a 3200 ISO film roll on a camera that allows 1600 ISO?
"just close the lens 2 points". I am guessing that the lens has two 'clicks' for each full stop, i.e. two clicks from f/2.8 to f/4, and two clicks from f/4 to f/5.6, etc. (I have a couple of old M42 mount lenses behaving like that). I would suggest rephrasing it to "close down the lens one full stop", or something like that, as it is more general.

@MichaelNielsen - well, you can, if you use Adobe RAW. Adobe Bridge uses the develop settings in the XMP file when displaying the image

Update the graph to have a logarithmical x-axis, and you would see a straight line :)
