comment How do I prepare best for my first wedding photography event?
Should also add if you are the sole photographer, make sure your camera is in good working order, make sure your batteries are fully charged (and spares too if you have them), and if possible, have a back-up camera too. The LAST THING you want is a problem with your camera, or for the battery to die on you!!

comment Why is my Canon 5DMIII draining batteries overnight?
I have to say, I have the Canon 5D Mark III, the Canon BG-11 grip, and two genuine LP-E6 batteries, and I have never experienced this issue. I also previously had the Canon 7D and Canon BG-E7 grip which takes the same LP-E6 batteries and never had any issues with that either. Would be interested to see if you solve this one...

comment Where does the DSC file name prefix come from?
I wonder why canon don't use this too... I think they default to IMGxxxxxx.

My DSLR focusses with a 10-stop ND filter and normal, fast, phase detection AF perfectly fine...

comment Backing up iPhone photos to iPad Mini on lengthy travel
Are you sure that even with using the camera connection kit - that you can back them up to the iPad? I'd be more inclined to use Photostream - it'll back up every pic you take to the cloud. If you have iPhoto or Aperture on a mac you can then download them at home.

comment Which Lens is better to use for portrait photography?
I'd agree with this -- the 1.6x crop on the 600D will make for an 80mm effective focal length which is flattering.

comment Is it problematic to mount a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L lens on Rebel XSi (450D) body?
I also own the 100-400 L, and used to use it on a Canon 350D prior to my full-frame upgrade. The lens always worked perfectly with the 350D and the 1.6x crop factor allows you to get really close to your subject. I used it mostly for air shows, outside, and during the day and the images were stunning.

comment How to repair when a DSLR was infected by computer worm or virus?
You should be able to do a low level format of the card from within your camera menu too... At least, my Canon Powershot S95 and 5D both have the option to do low-level formats. I'd always say to format the card in the camera, NOT the computer...

comment How to enhance details (like freckles) in lightroom?
@JosafatHernandezLlanos you would need either the full version of Photoshop, or an addon tool such as Photomatix to do this. I use Photomatix with Lightroom -- it's awesome! hdrsoft.com
