I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment High-end compact camera with swivel screen and running on AA batteries
Note that finally, I managed to fix my old camera, and will not buy a new one at this point. See also this question.

comment High-end compact camera with swivel screen and running on AA batteries
1k is more than enough for me on a 3-week hiking trip. My experience with rechargeable batteries however is that they're always empty when I need them (and get empty even when not in use)...

comment High-end compact camera with swivel screen and running on AA batteries
Thanks for the link to the excellent overview site. As no camera meets all my requirements, I'll have to compromise somewhere...

comment High-end compact camera with swivel screen and running on AA batteries
So far I've been taking along a pile of AA's; on a three-week backpacking trip, I need to replace a set of 4 non-rechargeable AA's at most once. Also, on some back-packing trips, I might pass by places where I can get and dispose of AA batteries (e.g. a small store), but not have the opportunity to charge anything.

You could upload them and make the face unrecognisable.

comment What sort of adjustments should be applied to bring out the colors in this photograph of the aurora?
Aurora photographs always look more impressive than the real thing, certainly after post-processing. The only thing more impressive in real life is that it moves.
