comment How can I fix a Nikon DX 18-135mm with an aperture stuck open?
Likely there's no way to fix it yourself, but I wouldn't say the lens is useless. It just means you have to keep the camera in Aperture or Manual mode and leave the aperture setting at its widest.

comment Are there any free Windows programs to get a live view for a Nikon D700 in tethered capture mode?
I realize this question is 3 years old but there is an Android app that allows you to control a D700 using a USB "on the go" cable. The app is free and USB OTG cables only cost ~$5 USD. It works nicely with a tablet although a tablet is still not as large as a PC monitor

comment Why are white-lighted areas on my Nikon D5100's LCD blinking continuously?
The guide is nice but the quickest fix is just to press the Up or Down button while looking at a picture, to cycle through the viewing options.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of using auto ISO on a DSLR?
this is misleading because you're working with [at least] 6 variables here: light + (aperture&shutter speed) + iso + post-processing = final exposure + noise. and what you've shown is that holding light, a/s, and the final exposure constant, decreasing ISO, and increasing post-processing results in greater noise. in order to get a real meaningful understanding of what one factor does to another you can't have so many things changing at the same time

comment Should the depth of field in the viewfinder be the same as the final images with the aperture set to wide open?
Any chance you have a second camera that could see into the viewfinder of the first?

comment What's the difference between exposure and shutter speed?
Flickr's EXIF data lists shutter speed as "Exposure" ... maybe not the reason for this question but it's definitely something that's confused me in the past
