comment Nikon D7000 thinks aperture of non-cpu lens is always 16 and overexposes photos
Could you specify the lens you're using? From the description, it sounds like a Helios 44M.

comment How are aperture changes implemented on D-series Nikkor lenses?
G lenses use the same mechanical coupling to control the aperture as older lenses. All they lack is a ring outside the barrel. There is no motor in the lens that moves the blades.

comment How Sixtomat (gossen) works without electricity?
It isn't so much that the cell is sensitive, because early cells weren't particularly efficient. The meter (the mechanical component with the needle) is lightweight, doesn't have a heavy return spring and requires a very tiny amount of current to make it move.

comment Is Nikon D40X still good enough for a beginner?
If you're going to spend your money, spend it on glass. Despite having a whopping 2.3 MP, my old D1 turned in a lot of work that I still admire.

comment Simple comparison of LightRoom 4, Corel AfterShot Pro, DarkTable
ASP still goes fast, but it has become progressively worse. I upgraded to 2.0 a few weeks ago and am very disappointed with what I get out of it, enough that I'm redeveloping my workflow in Darktable. I will miss Perfectly Clear, though.

comment Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VRII - Does Autofocus <5m really work?
@JamesSnell: The limit switch on AF-S lenses is electronic, so in theory the limit is in the firmware. On AF, it's mechanical and adds a physical obstacle to the focus ring. (It's also interesting to note that the Mk I version of the 70-200 limits at 2.5m, which makes it much more useful for portraits.)

comment Giving compact digital camera a Brain
If there are compact cameras that support that kind of external control and someone's written an application to do it, there's no reason why not. The cameras in mobile phones are getting to be good enough that there's not really any reason to carry a separate camera.

comment How should I handle the poor quality of my camera's rear LCD screen?
If your camera supports it, shoot tethered.

comment Is it okay to store a battery in its (unplugged) charger?
Whether or not the battery will deplete beyond the usual self-discharge depends entirely on the design of the charger.

comment Handicapped shooter needs remote view finder display
If holding the camera at a lower level is an option, would you be able to use a right-angle viewfinder adapter like the DR-5 or DR-6?

comment Why do my vertical photos go back horizontal when transferred from camera to iPad? How to avoid that?
CameraWindow and Photos may behave differently with respect to the orientation information stored in the image or there may be a switch in the latter that isn't turned on to allow it.
