comment How can I change the ISO value on a Nikon D300S without taking my eye from the viewfinder?
I don't have a D300 anymore to compare, but I always just moved my hand off the lens to adjust ISO, without moving the camera from my eye. I think the ISO change must have appeared in the viewfinder because that's otherwise trouble as you said. Does the remapped Fn button work differently than the ISO button?

comment Why can my Nikon D3300 write to the card, but it's read-only on the computer?
I understand the problem, but... is it a problem? I only ever read cards from the computer; don't even know if I can write to them. Reformat in the camera, and start shooting again.

comment In what type of conditions do I use a polarizer on a 300mm lens?
Is there something that makes you think a polarizer wouldn't be useful at long focal lengths?

comment If APS-C sensor crop factor is 1.6 does it mean if I use 300mm lens with 2x teleconverted I'll get 960mm focal lenght?
300mm * 2x teleconverer * 1.6 crop factor = 960mm, yes.

comment Why are superzoom lenses small but giant telephoto lenses huge?
You wrote "...That requires a larger front element..." This is perhaps minor, but that's likely not the complete truth. A larger front element necessitates larger elements throughout at least part of the rest of the optical formula, too. ...Which adds even more weight and more cost!

comment Is the odd appearance of this owl's head due to an unusual camera angle, or bad photoshopping?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this question is about bird anatomy.

comment Why don't people care any more about shutter speed accuracy?
I'm still trying to understand the question. Doesn't this answer -- and especially Matt's anecdote -- reinforce that people do care about shutter accuracy?

What leads you to believe that people no longer care about shutter speed accuracy?

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.
