comment Why don't cameras support journaled filesystems?
The error here was keeping 1000 photos on a card without backing up. If traveling to a remote location where you will be without access to a computer on which to backup you should be carrying a backup device.

comment Lightroom EXPORT not recognized by external programs
Did you export as PSD? I believe the PSD file can contain an edit history.

comment Is RAW worth the effort if using simple editing tools (e.g. iPhoto)
Once you try RAW and see how much you gain in editing (WB, dynamic range, etc) you'll never want to shoot anything else. You should download the 30-day trial of Lightroom and look for deals (I saw it for $109 last Friday, forget where though).

comment Why is focal length measured in millimeters?
If you read any Ansel Adams, you'll find that focal lengths for lenses on his earlier plate cameras were all measured in inches.

comment Have inkjet prints surpassed chemistry-based paper prints in terms of color gamut?
@StanRogers Good question. I assumed that the profile was showing me the gamut limits and the maximum possible saturation. I will try adjusting the proof tonight but I don't expect to be able to improve it much if the proof is already showing me the deepest red/orange possible.

comment Have inkjet prints surpassed chemistry-based paper prints in terms of color gamut?
Well, in my case the soft-proof and test prints were both unacceptable, I was just unwilling to accept that my "intuition" about chemistry-based paper was that flat-out wrong. And WHCC specifically does not do any color correction unless you ask for and pay for it. They are used to dealing with people who understand color management.

comment Photo editing: Is it ethically ok?
Take an Ansel Adams negative and print it with no manipulation, and the result will be flat and boring. Photography has always been about using an imperfect medium to capture what the eye sees. EVERY image is "edited", even if only to correct exposure and contrast. That said, I agree that you should strive to get as close as possible to your vision "in camera". As @Nir says, it's deception that's unethical, not editing per se.

comment How to use Image Stabilization on Canon EF 24-105mm F/4 L IS USM lens
Are you using "focus-then-recompose" technique? If so, then you have to give the IS between 1 and 2 seconds to settle down after you recompose. It's busy trying to compensate for your recomposition, which it perceives as camera shake.

comment How do you use the different autofocus points on your DSLR?
With IS lenses the biggest drawback to "focus and recompose" is that when you move the lens after focusing the IS tries to compensate, and if you shoot too quickly and don't let the IS settle down, it introduces motion-blur.
