comment Where does the DSC file name prefix come from?
I am sure, but this is at most a comment on the question and, IMHO, not an answer.

comment Techniques to set custom white balance?
You can buy a single expo-disc of the largest size and for smaller lens you can hold it with your hand while taking the white-balance shot.

Thanks! A product photo project would be my scenario.

comment How does connecting the camera to a laptop help in photography?
I do not know but I'd be surprised if there isn't. The keywords which you could use to search would be Canon, tethering, timelapse, focus control, application.

comment Why most Nikon-mountable prime lens don't have image stabilization?
Oh... I haven't noticed them. I just checked on a local store ( www.f64.ro ) ... DOH! I'll have to rewrite my question.

comment Do vibration-resistant lenses need tripods for ultra-sharp landscapes?
I'm with rfusca on that. Use a calculator to find out a hyperfocal length ( dofmaster.com/dofjs.html for example ) and keep at F11 or below.

comment Is it better to transfer photos by removing the memory card or by directly using a data cable?
I forgot the card in the laptop as well. The easy thing to do to avoid this is to leave the card door open on the camera so when you take it, this will remind you about the missing card.

comment Does an NDX400-equivalent exist for a 95mm filter thread?
I must check out the thread type and diameter, maybe there even are adapters so I could pluck a larger filter?

comment Does an NDX400-equivalent exist for a 95mm filter thread?
How many stops does a NDX400 have? The idea was to be able to safely shoot the sun (safe for me and for the camera).

comment Is ND400 insufficient for some sun moments?
@all : I was considering stacking two ND400 filters. Would this be overkill?

@Evan Krall : ISO was at the lowest level.

comment Is ND400 insufficient for some sun moments?
I do have the RAW file (12bit, compressed, that's how D5000 does it :(( ) but the crop is real pixels. At 300mm 500px width is all I could get. I am seriously considering at least a teleconverter if I can't afford a 500mm or more ..

comment Are there cameras which have only bodies, and no default attached lenses?
Usually the high-end bodies don't ever have a kit-offer.
