comment Can the sun damage the camera sensor? Under what conditions?
Why would the lens heat up? The light is focused through the lens onto the sensor. Besides, the purpose of a lens is to transmit as much light as possible.

comment So my iPhone 6 camera lens is as wide as my full frame 35mm DSLR lens?
A fine answer. Just want to point out that when you wrote "having a very wide field of view", it should read "depth of field".

comment Does it make sense to put an expensive lens on a cheap camera?
Np. Sorry I didn't intend to be mean. / That being said, there is some merit to matching good lenses with good bodies. I've seen expensive lenses that produce boring, flat images on older bodies like the Canon 20D, which has lower resolution and higher noise than current bodies. So as always, caveat emptor.

comment Does it make sense to put an expensive lens on a cheap camera?
I was referring to your last paragraph about body-to-lens price ratio: "My recommendation would be to bring the price multiplication factor a bit closer to the 2-3x range ..."

comment Does it make sense to put an expensive lens on a cheap camera?
@dpollitt I partially disagree with your answer. Speaking about the Canon DSLR ecosystem, there are a number of crop-sensor bodies with identical sensor resolution and noise level - for example 600D vs. 60D vs. 7D. In that situation, a more expensive body has faster autofocus and better "handling", but the image quality is still identical. So I would be cautious about the recommendation of blindly buying more expensive bodies to match more expensive lenses.

revised Why do cameras use a slit between two curtains rather than exposing the entire sensor instantly?
Fixed spelling slightly

comment Why do electronic shutters expose row by row?
Indeed, global shutter is possible in CMOS sensors. However it requires transistors to be added, which reduces light-sensing area and increases complexity. See Wikipedia.

comment Why does it seem like large sensors are necessary for good low-light performance?
The second sentence should read: The F-number is the focal length divided by the diameter of the aperture. (Wikipedia)
