comment What is the safest way to clean a greasy camera body?
I have bodies with that finish, and Plexus doesn't make it any less rough to the touch if applied in reasonable amounts. The OP's NX100 appears to have the matte finish you find on point and shoots which will do fine with either of the cleaners I listed.

The same is true in the United States.

comment Can I change the lens of my film SLR even when a film is loaded?
To put that another way, if allowing light through the lens mount would expose the film, you'd never be able to remove the lens cap.

comment Why does my sensor require frequent cleaning?
Primes don't tend to contribute to that problem since they don't move very far. (BTW, I've compared the D and G versions of the 50 and like the D better.)

comment Why does my sensor require frequent cleaning?
What lenses do you typically use? Those without internal focus and zooming tend to behave as a bellows, and not all are airtight at the rear element.

comment Why is a DSLR bigger than an SLR?
@kLy: SLRs offload all of the image processing onto the lab where the film is developed, so they can contain almost nothing beyond what's needed to handle and expose the film. DSLRs have to produce a usable image in-camera, and that hardware has to go somewhere. I if you were to spec out a full-frame camera that could only produce raw files, had no post-shot preview and the same primitive metering and controls we had in the 1970s, it would be the size of an OM-1. It also wouldn't sell.

Also look at the controls: On the front alone, the D has twice as many controls as the OM, and those require room. Someone shooting the D can flick the focus mode switch from single to continuous by feel and get the shot while the OM shooter has pulled the body away from his face and is making his way through menus.

comment Is the fake “Old photo look” taking the emotion out of real ones?
The answer is "yeah, probably," because someone will find it arty. If you think about it, we still revere black and white almost two centuries after the first photographs, and the only reason that ever happened was technology's inability to reproduce color. I have no doubt Louis Daguerre would have been delighted if he could have produced color photos right off the bat.

comment Is there a Canon equivalent for Nikon's AF-ON focus system?
AF-ON isn't a feature, it's just a button that tells the camera to refocus. Every autofocus body Nikon makes, even the D40, has a continuous focus mode that will repeatedly focus as long as the shutter button is pressed halfway or the AF-ON button is pressed on bodies that have one. On lower-end bodies, the shutter release does double duty for setting focus and exposure; on higher-end bodies the functions can be split out among the shutter release and the AF-ON and AE-L (auto exposure lock) buttons.
