"HD" stands for "high dollars".

comment What is crop factor and how does it relate to focal length?
Perpetuating bad science is bad. Saying in essence "lot's of other people do it wrong too" is no excuse. Photography can be a scientific subject, so it's important to get the science right. Using mass and weight correctly is really not that difficult. It's OK, sometimes even good, to explains things in lay terms, but it's never OK to be wrong in the process. Getting mass versus weight right is no harder than getting it wrong, so deliberately getting it wrong is inexcusable, especially after it's been pointed out.

Which supports exactly what I said. It is very clear that the kilogram is a unit of mass, not weight. That Wikipedia article even has a section "mass versus weight"! YOU need to read it.

comment How big can I print this image?
Depends on how big a printer you have, which of course we have no way of knowing.

comment How to identify slide/negative scanners that produce RAW files?
A TIFF file would only do if it has the full sensor resolution per color per pixel. If it does, though, it's essentially a raw file. I want to use my own software to make 8 bit/color/pixel images from the raw scan data, not have it done in the scanner or in the scanner's host software in a way that prevents getting at the raw data.

comment Why is there a red overlay in my night photographs?
Without a clear example, this is no question at all. Closing until fixed.

Whoever downvoted this, I'd really like to understand what you think is wrong, misleading, or badly written.

comment Need shutter speed of 1/3200 and a flash. Help?
Yes you have the right idea. I haven't used flash in a while, so I'm not up on what's out there currently.

comment What does the “Flux” effect of Instagram do?
@mick: I didn't use LR. I use my own software for such things. Surely LR has something similar though.

comment Why would an orange spark appear blue in a video?
@Robert: Not easily. If clipping is the main issue, then manually underexposing will help. However, the rest of the scene will be very dark. There is no good way around this since the spark really is lots brighter than the rest of the scene. Lots of additional illumination will help, since this will brighten the rest of the scene but have no affect on the spark.

Seems like a reasonable enough question to me, +1.
