comment Nikon D60: Autofocus of two AF-S lenses not working anymore after using another lens
After you used the 50, did you set the camera back to AF, or is it still set for manual?

comment How to remove fog while shooting and during post-processing?
Also keep in mind that the fogged-out areas contain relatively little information and will stand out like a sore thumb if you try to bring them in line with the rest of the image.

comment What are some tips to keep a lens from rolling on its side when kept horizontally on a table?
If you have more than one lens, buy a camera bag.

comment Would a 85mm lens have allowed me to blur the background better in this photo of a DJ in action?
Thre's also some room to adjust the composition to remove the distractions. I prefer the second version.

comment What does f/4.5-5.6G stand for on a Nikon Lens?
The "II" designation is applied to successive versions of the same lens where the alphabet soup and basic specs are otherwise the same. The 70-200 f/2.8 and 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 are examples of where they did this; the three versions of the 24-120 that have been released over the last 20 years are examples of where they didn't.

comment Are mobile phone camera lenses good enough to support 20MP sensors?
You would need to ask the manufacturers of the phones for detailed information on their lenses or remove them from finished handsets and send them to a lab for analysis. That makes this a question that cannot be answered here.

What kind of camera was used to take the photo? One with a rolling shutter?

comment What is a “pictorial effect” in photography, and how do I get it with a digital camera?
@garik: Sometimes it's good to go back to the original source and not read someone's redigested version.

Are you referring to making pictures using the guidelines described in Henry Peach Robinson's Pictorial effect in photography?

comment Why don't we have Manual flashes with High Speed Sync?
@zeebazu: Eight pluses within 1/250th would be 2,000 pulses per second.

comment Where do rays of light from one point strike the film?
You might find your question best answered by examining the implementation of ray tracing software.

comment Why does Darktable show D5300 RAW (.NEF) in pink in darkroom?
I notice that Base Curve is turned on, which means your copy is automatically applying it for new pictures or you've selected one that applies the offsets to the red and blue channels shown in the histogram.

comment What did pros do when their photos storage getting huge?
@chuqui: If you have a short enough RTO, you should be charging your clients enough that you can afford storage that's reliable and protected enough to avert most disasters and meet that figure for those that happen. The reality is that most of us aren't in that league. 100 GB comes back over a 10 Mbps link in less than a day. Selective restoration of what you need to work on right now will get you back in business even faster, and the rest can be filled in over time or by having the backup service ship you a drive.

comment What did pros do when their photos storage getting huge?
@chuqui: I have multiple TB on CrashPlan, and once everything is backed up, everything is incremental. The kind of storage used by CP and its ilk makes periodic full backups unnecessary. (Unprofitable, too.)
