comment How to avoid water in a shower from appearing to fall upwards?
It's not only an optical illusion. Water droplets do not look like the "cartoon" drops we see everywhere. Have a look at static.photo.net/attachments/bboard/00L/00L9fF-36529984.jpg and static.photo.net/attachments/bboard/00L/00L9fH-36530184.jpg from photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00L9fF

comment Can we measure size of an object using EXIF data from a photo?
Not sure where the 2 times came from, but it shouldn't be there. Removed it now.

comment Can we measure size of an object using EXIF data from a photo?
I'm not calculating the area. I assumed the question asked for linear sizes, and explained how to calculate these based on the number of pixels in one direction. I've added a clarification.

comment Might future advances in sensor technology reduce or eliminate noise?
This is true for very short exposure times, but how short? Can you add some (estimated) values for the different exposures in the example picture. Are we talking about 1 nano second to 10 nano seconds, or are we approaching "normal" camera performance exposure times? I realise this will depend on the amount of light, but take a "normal" indoor scene as an example.

comment Will there be any differences which affect photography when running Windows on a Mac?
This questions should most likely be asked on Ask Different - the SE site for Apple hardware and software questions.

comment Why are medium format cameras considered superior?
I don't understand your question. You're saying that larger is better, point to a link that say S2 has larger sensor than 1DX, and then you jump to a conclusion that this isn't just about size. I don't follow...
