I'm a college student with an interest in computers and specifically Unix-based operating systems. At the moment I am using only two OSs: Debian squeeze and Ubuntu, although I have experimented with openSUSE, Fedora, ArchLinux, openBSD and openIndiana. I've been able to get the most out of them partly because of sites like these, where the community is very understanding and helpful. I am also very fond of tennis-playing and theoretical physics, although it isn't what I study at college.

comment What are the differences between the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens and the one that isn't IS II?
I mean, the difference is over $1000...

comment Why do people say the Canon 550D isn't a real entry-level camera?
@mattdm mmm... I'm feeling like I overspent; like I could've got the camera with a kit lens AND an extra lens (50mm maybe) for the same cash...

@Shizam Why did nobody up-vote my question?

comment When is it more suitable to have a full sensor-camera instead of a crop sensor-one?
Thanks, dpollitt. I've accepted your answer not because it's the only one, but because it's a good one for sure.

Wow, @dpollitt! You've just given me the answer I was looking for. That was not on the other questions, you see. And it wasn't that long either, it fit in a comment. So thank you for your experienced opinion; what you are saying then is that full sensor is most suitable for all 6 styles but action photography, right?

comment When is it more suitable to have a full sensor-camera instead of a crop sensor-one?
Thank you, @dpollitt. All three questions you linked above are useful (I had read two of them already). However, I think it could be possible for an experienced user to tell briefly whether they believe full or crop sensor is the one suitable for, say, action photography. A long, detailed answer isn't really what I'm looking for; I'd rather have someone give me just some directions on the matter.

comment Canon 550D - Is it a good camera for starters?
Thank you for your long, detailed answer, Mark. I'd vote you up but I haven't that privilege yet.
