comment Why is shutter speed changing after each shot in manual mode?
Do you have auto-bracketing enabled?

comment How can I reduce the recycling time between shots when the built-in flash is enabled?
Menu e1, "Flash Cntrl for Built-in Flash" (p. 164). There's a manual mode where the flash power can be set between full and 1/32 power. Of course, you'd need to change the ISO or aperture anyway to keep a similar flash exposure.

comment do mirrorless camera lenses have automatic diaphragms
Re "What problem": It affects whether the depth of field is the same in the viewfinder as in the picture (in DSLRs it generally isn't), and whether you will be affected by focus shift. Isn't that a fair question for a photography site? (Unfortunately I don't know the answer.)

comment Is it possible to get an interval precise up to 2 decimal places using a (software) intervalometer?
Triggertrap can probably do it. You'll need an Android or iOS device and a trigger dongle for the camera, about $40. Use the timelapse function, it can be set in intervals of 1/100th of a second. This is a comment rather than a reply since I don't know whether you'll get 10ms accuracy in practice, or whether the LP player RPM will stay that accurate over 12 hours. For accuracy I'd go with Russell's suggestion.

comment How to change aperture in manual mode on an entry-level Nikon SLR?
One more thing: Turn off Auto ISO, or the camera will compensate by adjusting the ISO. (Assuming the D3200 works similar to my D5100.) This doesn't affect the aperture, but it does affect the exposure, the brightness you see in the picture.

comment Relevance of absolute light power in studio object photography?
I meant subject rather than room: E.g 50 W bulbs in the softbox should give the same contrast as long as you can reduce the ambient light to 3-4 stops below the light from the softbox. In daytime that might require a windowless room or heavy curtains, but it's doable.

comment Relevance of absolute light power in studio object photography?
Good point. Although if you use a 50 W (equivalent) light bulb to light up the room, I assume that the ambient light is even lower. So perhaps the absolute light level doesn't matter, but the relative light level certainly does.

@zsz85 I guess it's because most studios also shoot people, and if you're at f/16 (for depth of field) and ISO 100 (for low noise), few living things can hold perfectly still for that long. In short, they want to be able to freeze motion.
