comment Can a camera or lens get burn in?
Any links to the astrophotography study? And what counts as a "surprisingly long amount of time"?

comment What are the downsides of leaving my camera in burst mode all the time?
This is a good point, but doesn't really answer the question. If you hadn't had your camera in burst mode, you would've had no chance of getting the "woah" shot at all.

comment How do I geotag photos in Apple Aperture?
This seems a little more fiddly than it should be, but it works! Hopefully in the future Apple will refine the process a bit. Thanks for the tips.

comment Are there any downsides to using a good-quality UV filter?
So does it reduce image quality if I take a step backwards and introduce another 2 feet of air between the camera and the subject? Just because something in theory might make a difference doesn't mean it will in practice.

@koiyu: As you can probably tell, I have never done this and so have no idea about the quality, other than the quick pixel calc I mention in my answer. I guess I would be surprised if you could do a better job with a lightbox and macro lens than a dedicated scanner, but I really don't know.

@koiyu: Sounds like you fall into the "fun project" category. Good luck! I maintain that a scanner sounds easier, but if it's about the DIY-ness, then have fun!

@rufsca: but a flatbed scanner takes zero setup, and essentially zero time per photo. You just sit there and read the paper as it does its thing.
