comment Should I replace the Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens with a 40mm f/2.8 or 50mm f/1.4?
I wouldn't say "f/1.8 is nearly unheard of in a point and shoot camera" when most phone cameras these days are less than one stop slower than f/1.8. What I would say is that, "The depth of field achievable by f/1.8 on an APS-C sensor is eye opening when comparing it to the minimum depth of field achievable on a point and shoot camera."

comment What can cause red eye in only one eye?
@SVilcans If that person said to you, "Hey, it looks like you may have a symptom of retinoblastoma," it might be enough to get you to ask your doctor. Better safe than sorry.

comment Promaster Flash Module TTL on a Modern Canon DSLR
@MichaelClark The thing that confused me was that the module was listed as "FTA", whereas my flash is an "FTD"; I wasn't sure if the module was meant for another line of Promaster flashes. Upon further inspection, it does look like "FTA" is just the model designator for the modules and has nothing to do with the flash model naming.

comment Variable ISO Sensor: Possible and/or Useful?
@Imre True, but that's not necessarily a technical problem. For example, as Itai mentioned above, there is already technology to read photosite values partway through the exposure. Advanced metering systems could also be used to "guess" ISO values for regions. Finally, for still shots like landscapes, an initial test exposure could be used to set the ISO values for a second shot.

comment Why aren't there any cooled CCD sensors to reduce noise?
It has been done, but I think this will demonstrate some of the downsides: youtube.com/watch?v=W4QYPIlMnVQ astro-fotografie.blogspot.com/2009/04/… astro-fotografie.blogspot.com/2010/05/…
