comment GPS location information does not seem to be recognised by Lightroom 5.7.1
To clarify: you see the location-related fields and lat/long are empty, or you do not see the location fields? If the latter, note that you can choose what fields are visible in the library.

comment Timelapse with shutter release
As WayneF says, simply, an intervalometer is what you want not a simple cable release.

comment Why don't manufacturers include shutter count in the camera menus?
You can usually read the shutter count in photo metadata, and I'm sure there are a great variety of third-party tools to help you do that. But what third-party firmware is there that alters your firmware and is wildly untrusted? As-is, it seems to me you're making unsubstantiated claims and fearmongering to make your argument.

comment How can I turn off Lightroom's backup notice?
Also a good point, @Hugo! Really, people who believe that the catalog is evil just need to get over themselves and use it.

comment How can I turn off Lightroom's backup notice?
A good point. Note also that you can have your changes written to sidecar XMP files, so the catalog isn't responsible for holding changes.

comment I noticed high lens distortion with my kit lens; is this normal, and how to avoid this?
Even though both distortion and perspective are addressed in the answers, I'm curious to know: which are you referring to?

comment Polarizing filter causing soft, hazy shots?
I have never seen it happen and have no first-hand experience so I won't post this as an answer: a polarizing filter is actually made up of a few layers, so I'm sure it's possible that they could come apart. The impact? I've no idea!

comment Are Manfrotto Q6 Plates Compatible with Acratech GP-ss Ball-Heads?
I think this is too broad: "...do other Arca-Swiss clamps accept Q6 plates?" All AS-style clamps are not equal, and some only work with same-manufacturer plates.

comment How to take high resolution pictures?
It's not clear to me what your question is. The resolution of the photos on unsplash appear to be between about 10 and 30 megapixels. As your camera is 18 megapixels you should be able to produce images of similar resolution (10-18 megapixels).

comment UV Filter that best suits Nikon 18-140 mm lens
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it shows that the author didn't make any effort to find an answer before posting.

comment Is there a time limit for bulb mode (generally)?
I'm pretty sure there is not a 30 minute limit on bulb mode on any lower-end Nikon DSLRs and that this is a limit imposed when using the IR remote. The D50 definitely does not have a 30 minute limit.

comment PS Elements vs Lightroom for image management
Lightroom can import your PSE database, which I can tell you definitely works just fine. Upgrading the DB shouldn't be a concern.
