comment Why use JPEG instead of RAW?
I think point 1, 2 and 4 are correct, but often exaggerated. I shoot in RAW using the D800 and none of these concerns are true concerns, given reasonable hardware.

comment How should I respond to a lowball offer for commercial use of one of my photographs?
A worldwide TV show with no budget?

comment Does fps relate to still photography or videography?
@AJHenderson Sorry, it turns out that this is a thing in the dutch language only (bps = beelden per seconde = images per second), whilst we do use the english FPS for video. Hence my confusion.

comment Does fps relate to still photography or videography?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't they express the burst rate as bps instead of fps? If yes, then that makes the distinction easy.

comment What is the legal consensus on “pinning” photos using Pinterest?
My question is asked regardless of the source site. Photos are usually owned by photographers not by the site on which they share them. Furthermore it's not a pinterest policy review either, since they too do not own the photo.

comment Why is giving clients RAW files such a sensitive matter among photographers?
Not a lawyer either, but I don't believe the format of RAW in itself should automatically be seen as the photo's "IP". First, it's not a photo, it's an unfinished product, literally "raw". Second, IP dictates ownership and usage rights, which can/should be tied to the actual product, which can be in any format.

comment Are there any official flash extenders for macro work?
Thank you! That's exactly the term I'm looking for. This looks interesting and affordable, not sure if it can support a SB700: aliexpress.com/item/…

comment How do I calculate the distance of an object in a photo?
If you're only interested in the result, and not the math itself, some cameras record the subject's distance in EXIF information.

comment What are the true limitations of using the TC-17E II or TC-20E III on both telezoom and macro?
Thank you, this is by far the most useful information I have seen so far, covering exactly the combination that is relevant to me.

comment What are the true limitations of using the TC-17E II or TC-20E III on both telezoom and macro?
Thanks! By now it is clear to me that the TC-14E is the only option given my needs. The only unclarity I have left is the lack of AF on the macro lens. I see the official info, yet have seen several forum users on the dutch Nikon site saying AF works just fine on their 105mm. Either way, I can live with MF on macro.

@StanRogers Thanks! So that would mean the 1.4 convertor is the only safe option to use on the telezoom, correct?
