I mainly work as a .Net developer these days but I enjoy pretty much any code. And I really like playing with bits down at the hardware level :)

comment Digital camera with WI-FI and time-lapse function
What camera do you have already? And what quality of photos for you want/need. It might be cheaper to point out "upgrade" options instead of trying to find an entirely new rig. (On a pro Nikon you could hook a MC-22 to a small computer like an Arduino for a few hundred bucks.) ... then again a $15 webcam and a laptop could be used if you just need low res shots.

comment What should I look for in taking pictures of a historic prison?
Do you want photos to look artistic (soft/ethereal) or like a documentary (sharp)?

comment What type of lens should I get for an air show?
Guess I should have pointed out I shoot Nikon, but most of my lenses are Sigma which are avalible for most dSLRs.

I do this all the time on my Nikons as well.

Have you tried a right angle eyepiece adapter? I have been pretty happy with the results I get with mine. It even has a 2x magnifer.

comment What can I use as a 'holster' to keep DSLR handy but secure while hiking?
I love mine... Bought it for my Nikon D60 with my 18-200mm... it works just as well for my D5100 with the 18-200 or my 8-16mm. BTW, the leather is very sturdy and can take a beating from trees, rocks, rain, snow and even being splashed by waves in the ocean.

comment What would be a good wide angle lens to rent for Nikon?
The sigma 8-16mm quickly became one of my favorite lenses. Most of my photographs are of landscapes and lens can take in the whole view.

comment Which camera bag for a single DSLR camera plus 2 lenses?
How tall is that Velocity 8? My x10 is great on height but is just so huge that is sometimes gets in the way. (I can keep a Nikon D50 on a Sigma 120-400mm zoom with the lens hood in the x10.)

+1 Fantastic camera. Since I got mine I carry it as backup to my macro prime and long telephoto.

I'd have to bed to differ on the 18-200mm not working well indoors and in low light. I have many shots that would show otherwise. And it gives you an excellent zoom range when you are just going for a photo walk.

@Peter, I have had great luck with my Sigma lenses. I was worried at first because of what I have read people saying about some of them online. But after getting a chance to use my friends 18-200 I decided to try a few out on my own. They have given me excellent results. Judge for yourself, I have posted a few samples above.
