comment Why is my Nikon D300S changing shutter speeds between shots?
You need to include some information about what shooting mode your camera is in and the nature of your subject. I can think of two cases where what you describe would be completely normal behavior.

comment Will any non-AF lens work on a Nikon camera with built in AF already in the camera body?
Nikon currently has eight full-manual primes and three perspective control (PC-E) lenses in its lineup.

comment What kind of lenses will work with my new Nikon DSLR?
FWIW, every Nikon DSLR since the D1 has had a section in the manual that describes what lenses are compatible (sometimes down to ranges of serial numbers) and what camera features will be available with each type of lens.

comment Does the size of blower matter to clean the sensor of the camera?
Once again, there's no need to be insulting.

comment DSLR with bar/qr code scanner untethered!
You might be better off simply snapping a shot of the barcode when you'd scan it, using software to read it and applying the information to every image up to the next one containing a barcode. All of that happens after the fact and will work with any camera you're using.

To that I should add that good blowers are made of silicone, which doesn't rot.

comment Does the size of blower matter to clean the sensor of the camera?
DO NOT use canned air on sensors or lenses. There is no actual air in the can, just a fluoroethane propellant that vaporizes and blows out the nozzle at very high speed, often carrying droplets of very cold liquid along with it. That stuff is more difficult to remove than dust and can cause coated surfaces to crack. There are plenty of blowers on the market that are manufactured cleanly; the ones that blow powder are cheap garbage.

comment Is B&W paper optimized for colour negatives available today?
@Noah: What you would need is pancrhomatic paper, which wasn't exactly common 20 years ago and is probably impossible to find now. You'd also need to do a lot of filtering to counter the orange tint of the negatives because most B&W papers are blind to reds, and even then I doubt the results would be very good.

comment How to verify\calibrate a light meter?
@SailorCire: Digital meters could be calibrated by embedding a table that says when the sensor reads x, the corrected value is y. Analog meters are at the mercy the electrical properties of the parts inside.

comment Is it possible to modify a camera by changing cmos sensor?
...plus the skills to reverse-engineer the hardware between the sensor and the firmware and make whatever changes will be needed to accommodate the new sensor.

KEH has a pretty extensive identification guide, too.

comment How can I edit the capture date in Nikon raw file
@RFlack: It's very rare that a manufacturer doesn't follow the standard, especially for the basics. EXIF also includes escape hatches for vendor-specific data, some of which ExifTool understands.

comment How can I edit the capture date in Nikon raw file
ExifTool doesn't support cameras, it supports file formats that contain EXIF data. I've been using it for over a decade and haven't known it to not work with anything it claims to support. If you run exiftool filename.nrw, it will dump out the tags in the file. You can use that to figure out what tags your camera sets and see the effects of changes. You'll want to tinker with copies of a few files while you get it figured out. It's a very powerful tool, and like powerful tools, it has a learning curve. You'll get there.
