comment What is this plastic clip on that came on the leg of my tripod?
I've been wondering exactly this. Great question.

comment How do I determine the actual calibrated specifications of a Holga?
Isn't this question kind of against the spirit of a Holga? Setup a parallel shoot with a calibrated DSLR, and see what gets. Might need to shoot a moving object to see if 1/100 is not 1/50 or 1/250. But Holgas are supposed to be shoot and pray

comment Lenses for fast-paced environment
The very first photo that I clicked on at the whitehouse flickr stream was a Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM. He's upgraded to a 5D3

comment Why will low-end Nikons not meter with old lenses?
No, pre-AI lenses have a meter coupling prong that connects to the meter on the body. All old Nikkor/Nikon lenses have the coupling prong. Modern consumer Nikon DSLRs will not mount these lenses as the coupling prong will contact the extended pentaprism of the DSLR. While the F-mount has not changed, there are many F-mount lenses that won't mount on modern F-mount cameras. I can't imagine how a modern camera would "break the metering" if you can get it to mount without force.

comment how to get canon eos-5d mark ii RAW files using USB cable and BYPASSING the eos utility
I don't see this as the usual term for "driver software" which allows lots of software to use a piece of hardware. Rather what you need is a specific piece of software that can read the Canon data. EOS Utility, Lightroom, Aperture, and probably The Gimp all can do it directly.

comment Full frame or not?
Make that if money, size, and weight are not issues, go full size. The 5D3 is physically much larger than the 70D, and heavier as well. For my particular needs, size and weight are very important.
