comment Why do my prints darken too quickly in the developer tray?
Olin's answer inspires another question: Your paper and developer are all negative. Did you get the positive by scanning and inverting it, and when you say the paper turns black too fast, do you mean the areas that are bright in the scene?

Well good on you for doing it, because there's nothing like watching a picture materialize on paper before your eyes. That's the one thing I miss about chemical photography. Hope what I put in my answer is useful to you.

What kind of paper are you exposing and what are you using to develop it?

comment Low light action with no flash and 300 lens
There's not really enough detail to answer your question. Determining whether or not you could shoot successfully would depend on available lighting, how fast your lenses are and the sensitivity of your camera body.

comment Nikon 5300 with VR 18-55 kit lens suddenly making a sound while long pressing the shutter button
The VR hardware in some lenses has been known to make clunky noises. Does it still happen if you disable VR?

comment Editing and saving RAW files, and the relationship to the XMP sidecar files
@dpollitt: The OP didn't specify a program, so I tried to keep it generic. I'll update the answer to cover that.

comment Focusing issues with Nikon 18-35mm f3.5-4.5D on D3200
The 18-55 isn't much to write home about. I've owned the 18-35 D for a dozen years or so, and if you can correct the weird distortion in post, it's hard to beat for the money.

comment Focusing issues with Nikon 18-35mm f3.5-4.5D on D3200
@azngunit81: Correct. I forgot that the D3200 has a single focus indicator and have edited the answer to reflect that.

comment Benefit of having a point and shoot on the hot shoe of a DSLR
Some point-and-shoots produce awfully good video.

comment Are there any known focusing issues for the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR and if so, how to compensate for them?
Is the lens the VR or VR II?

comment How can I view vintage medium-format negatives (from about 1950)?
There are still some labs around that print medium-format film.

comment Is it possible for a phone manufacturer to enable camera raw through a software upgrade?
I'm sorry, but you're guessing and you're wrong.

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.
