comment How can I get the shutter actuation count for Canon EOS 500D/550D?
I'm annoyed that Canon's own software can't provide this. I keep track of how many times the camera has rolled over 9,999. Of course that's only reliable when you buy new.

comment What is “bokeh panorama” (also called the “Brenizer method”)?
"Bokeh panorama" is what Ryan Brenizer called it. "Brenizer Method" is what others started calling it and that's what stuck.

comment Should I wait for product version X to be released before buying the now-current version?
The 5DII's AF system isn't very confident in single-shot mode and is terrible in servo mode. I think the D700 is a better camera in this market. I shoot the 5DII and it's a great camera, but it certainly does need some improvement!

comment Photographing darker-skinned people
The meter doesn't look for white skin, it looks to expose middle tone.

He uses the 5D2 and mostly primes, especially the 35 1.4. Check out the Whitehouse Flickr stream, flickr.com/photos/whitehouse All the Exif data is left intact. The 70-200 will popup a few times in there. I've seen a 50 1.2 before.

comment Should I go 5D Mark II or 7D?
The 50L on the 5DII is brilliant. I actually had a muffler shop weld my 50L directly to the body.
