comment Which camera should be recommended to the non photographers who insist on getting a DSLR for daily life photography?
@Olivier - I see, thanks for the comment. If in fact that is gratuitous spending to the OP, I would advise just letting them buy whatever they think they need. But the problem is that you can't buy much camera at all for under that budget either outside of great used deals.

comment Why do pro photographers use huge lenses to take portrait shots?
The Canon 85 f1.2 is only used by ignorant portrait photographers? Here have a downvote!

comment How to rapidly select image subsets from a large collection?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this really doesn't have anything to do with photography specifically. Try the superuser stack exchange site.

comment Control for shading and variable outdoor lighting conditions
I don't see why nighttime would be a problem. It would be easier as far as I can see. You still would have some ambient if the moon is around but that would be easy to overcome.

Oh you could during the day. Use strobes(off camera).

comment What specs are good for an astrophotography camera?
I'd start with the 5 questions I pointed you to in chat: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/37747/… . Is there something that those questions didn't answer that we can help with? The way you phrased this question, I wonder if this is the best place for you to start: How do I tell which point-and-shoot cameras take good low light photos?

What is a "presentation board"?

comment Which lens for a wedding (group of 60)?
It all depends on the distance between you and the group. Wider lenses have more distortion so if possible avoid them for portraits.

comment Travel arrangements with Sigma Lenses?
This question is too confusing. Why did you have trouble shooting the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore previously? It is unlikely if a 18-55mm lens couldn't do it, that a 17-70mm could. Please explain.

comment Looking for an application that will provide image matches on local machine
It seems like the tags could be improved here. If "network" is the only applicable tag this question probably doesn't belong here.

Try a different lens.

comment Which Camera to replace Canon PowerShot G10 in self-made photo booth
Yeah but why would you need software controlled zoom for a photo booth? That isn't common for a booth and I don't know why you would even use it. It's important because I believe every Canon DSLR allows remote control of the remaining aspects without an issue using a variety of software.

comment Dark+Contrast. New trend in photography editing, how its done?
Lots of linked to examples, fairly decent title, and a decent overall question. Welcome to the site have an upvote! I'm also not convinced that this an HDR or tonemapping technique in general; maybe for the first image but the others I'd say no. I would be interested in seeing someone provide a before/after of a nighttime cityscape that HDR achieved a similar look if they are convinced that is what was done. I'll throw a bounty at it if no-one jumps at it.

comment Which Camera to replace Canon PowerShot G10 in self-made photo booth
I don't get the problem. It sounds like a Canon DSLR with a kit zoom(i.e. 18-55mm) will solve the problem of "booth installation". Also, what is wrong with the G10 you have been using? If it is broken, why not buy another? For a photo booth especially the G10 is perfectly suitable I would think.

comment Why is my D7100's auto focus not working?
See What should I do when my Nikon AF-S lens won't auto focus? and What can I do if autofocus does not work but manual focus does? or maybe Why does my Nikon D3100 no longer auto-focus via the viewfinder? or the other two dozen questions we have on this topic.

comment In working out Auto White Balance, what to do if there are multiple sources of light?
I'm not clear what you are asking. What problem are you trying to solve? Are you trying to determine how to handle light sources with different temperatures in the same scene?
