comment I accidentally refrigerated my lens for a month. Should I be worried?
The real shame here is that a 35mm f1.4 went unused for a month!

comment Is CMYK less blue than sRGB?
It's important to recognize that a color space is not 2 dimensional as this plot shows, but 3 dimensional -- the way reproducible color changes as it gets darker and lighter will show that CMYK and RGB are more different than this plot shows. I can't find a good 3D view of the CMYK space, but I hope it's sufficient to say that this is not a complete picture of either color space.

comment Why is a wacom better than mouse for retouching?
Like any tool, you need some time to develop your skill with it.

comment Seeking a way for “authoritiative”, proven method to prove that two photo images are “nearly identical”?
In both cases it's just subtracting the the difference between overlaid pixels to visualize where the changes are. It's proven in that it works well, yes, but whether or not that provides you with the information you need is up to you. I doubt it'll do what you want because as user28116 mentioned in the comments on the question any change to the image whatsoever causes it to appear in the difference blending mode.

comment Where can I find tables of common shutter speed and aperture values?
It's worth pointing out that common apertures and shutter speeds aren't the only ones that can be used. Electronic shutters mean 1/99 sec is possible and perhaps entirely correct; a non-standard aperture of f4.1 might be more accurate than the f4 value printed on the lens, too. In other words, why do you need to round them?

comment Why are my photos taken with the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 coming out blurred?
No: the 18mm focal length has more depth of field than if a 50mm focal length were used to frame the photo the same way. 1/60 sec shutter speed is also likely fast enough to prevent blur due to camera shake because of the wider focal length.

comment What makes a DSLR camera “entry-level”?
Somewhat out of scope, but it may be worth noting that if you drop the APS-C sensor bullet point, this describes entry level film cameras, too.

comment Would I get more benefit from buying a new lens to go with a new camera body?
You seem to be under the (false) impression that the D70 and 18-70 are entry-level items. They're not!

comment Why did this photo of the Milky Way turn out badly?
With that many city lights, yes, the problem is pretty clearly light pollution.

comment Nikkor lens for landscape photography day / night
What lenses have you found? In what ways are they good/bad? Create a better question and we can better answer it. The Nikon 24mm f1.4 is great, FWIW.

comment Are modern digital cameras better at dealing with blown highlights than they used to be?
Your previous question is from 3 years ago. I'm sure you know this, but that's only 1-2 generations old. I think the question would be better if this were highlighted and the question asked if the current generation is better than the previous generation -- because that's really the only difference between this and the other question, right?
