comment How do I choose a teleconverter for my Tamron 70-200 f2.8 and Canon camera?
I say meh to the avoiding teleconverters. I use my 2x all the time with my 70-200 sigma and I sometimes even toss in an extension tube. This setup allows me to remove two big lenses (120-400mm and 180mm macro) from my bag and still capture amazing photos. ... though I am typically more worryed about capturing natural landscapes and wild life versus focus test screens.

comment How to photograph a glow run?
You could try a test with some cheap blacklights and see if they will work. You don't really need a UV flash a constant UV flash light should work and you can pick them up for under $20 on amazon.

comment How can I avoid this blur during taking indoor party pictures?
If you had a tripod the blur would probably be even worse. You need fast shutter to freeze motion.

comment How can I take a candlelit photo with a pure black background?
Are you using real candles or the LED tea lights like in the sample photo? Real candles don't provide the same color temperature and brightness as the LEDs.

comment More covert rf remote shutter control for canon Xsi?
I'd first see if the antenna needs to be extended at the range you want to use the remote. if it does then you can remove the antenna and replace it with a line piece of jacketed wire,

comment How to shoot transparent infrared aerial photographs with a light table and a DSLR?
Well if that's the case I would suggest 42mm (unless the pancake lens is longer) and get as close as you can and still focus then putting the camera in aperture priority and seeing how clear the edges are when you increase the f/stop. You may need to just crop the centers and use those if that if the best you can do. (Either that to take the photos to the closest photography/office supply shop and see if they can scan them.)

I'd do a mosaic of telephoto shots with extension tubes so you can focus close.

comment Should I really lug around a lens cap everywhere?
I'll also note that I rarely use UV filters anymore. Putting a $30 filter on a $1000+ lens and getting weird reflections, refractions and lens flares isn't worth the pain. I find the lens hoods protect my front element just as well with less trouble and quality loss.

That's a huge bummer... it looks like they stopped making the leather holsters. (Skytop Trading).

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.

comment How can I “abort” auto exposure bracketing after taking the first shot?
I do this all the time on my Nikons as well.
