comment EyeFi doesn't support CF cards. Are there any alternatives that do?
@mattdm - I've updated to the latest information. Looks like it's now coming to a CF card near you... :)

comment Is the build-quality of the Canon 60D as good as the 40D?
@Stuart - as mentioned by Matt: What you need to do is merge your accounts - the guest one and your new one. To do that, go here: photo.stackexchange.com/help/merging-accounts

comment Pros and cons of cheap studio strobes vs. hotshoe/speedlight flash for portraits?
Modeling light is handy for shadow and highlight determination visually, but it's not make or break there because the intensity levels are not always high enough to get a really good sense of how sharp or diffuse those shadows will be depending on ambient light.

comment How can I upload photos rejected as corrupted to Blurb Books?
Are the file sizes of the rejected images much larger than the ones that succeeded?

comment Should my collection of older Pentax lenses be a deciding factor in my first DSLR purchase?
Not sure where you heard that Pentax cameras aren't too great, comparatively, but I might suggest that you ignore their advice in the future because it's almost a polar opposite at the same price point. The list of cameras you have there are quite old, current Pentax cameras are amongst the best going.

comment Do photographers see ambiguity in the color of the blue/black (gold/white) dress?
Sorry Matt, protected this to avoid the flood off the Internet treating the site as a discussion forum.

comment What should I consider when using DSLRs in cold weather?
@Robin - I suggest looking at the posting date... However, rating is service recommendation by the manufacturer. Check your manual.

comment Should I buy a compact, SLR, or DSLR camera?
@AndréDaniel - Please don't use comments to answer a question. Use the answer functionality for it.

comment Performance of large libraries
Generally, as mentioned, we prefer to avoid compound questions here. I think both of your questions are answered though, but if there is still something you'd like known beyond that, please ask a new question. As an aside, 15K images isn't really that large a library, mine exceeds 50K and I know others that have way more than I do.

comment What publicly-accessible high-elevation photography-locations exist in New York City?
@Itai - No, no tripods that I saw. There are some ledges that you can probably use for stability. Also, depending on the camera, you might be able to use a Gorilla pod. Failing all that, the classic "string tripod" will work.

comment What publicly-accessible high-elevation photography-locations exist in New York City?
@vclaw - I took a dSLR (Pentax K-5) up there without a problem. What they're trying to avoid is commercial photography. Besides, there are plenty of "professional" cameras that don't look it...

comment GoPro 4 or Canon for photos of northern lights?
Can or can't take pictures in the dark? Your question is a little unclear really.

comment What type of lens is more suitable for this type of portrait shot on railroad tracks?
It's generally considered appropriate to cite the sources for those images as, based on your question, we know they're not yours.

comment How can I bring out the texture and sheen on a model's clothing?
You don't upload them through the comments, just edit your own question to add the images. Also, please, don't "shout" in comments or questions. All caps text is not desired.

comment How much flare should I expect with a Hoya HMC Filter?
Are you talking about the ghosting that's visible down the wall a bit? That's a side effect of having a filter, it's reflection, not flare.

A sample of what you shot and how you lit it would be a good start to enabling us to help you.

comment Will a 50mm EF lens give the same result as a 50mm EF-S lens?
Despite the edit, I closed this. The question is now 4, which isn't a good option on the site and the answers have lost context as a result. The first posting is a duplicate, I think that's fairly clear. Having said that, you could ask your new question(s) separate from this presuming that they haven't been asked before.

comment How to make ordinary extra-ordinary without juxtaposition?
I'm still not sure I understand what you're asking here... Is this a real question or are you attempting to use the Socratic method to teach?
