+1 Thanks dpollitt for your comprehensive answer. Now, I know that this camera array can be use for taking photo and also video.

comment What is the device made from lots of cameras shown in this picture?
Thanks Bart Arondson. I thought that the guy is taking a photo using that camera array device. So, that guy is actually taking a movie with time slice effect using that camera array device. At first I thought that that device can take multiple dimensional photos.

comment What technique can I use for shooting pet birds in cages?
@AJHenderson, I can't find a picture that is the one that I want to illustrate but the objective is that when I take a photo of the bird in a cage far away from me and if I use a tele lens, it should be able to take a photo "more" of the bird and "less" of the cage.

comment How do I take a photo of a animals in a shaded glass boxes behind a glass panel?
@RussellMcMahon I never thought that accept the 1st answer given within an hour of asking can discourage people who care about reputation. I have posted a discussion at meta.photo.stackexchange.com/questions/3790/… as I would like to be fair to everyone.

comment How to take a photo of a animal behind a glass and in a very dark room with a bit of orange light?
@MikeW That's funny. I can't find a shiny brass lamp. There is no lamp, no torch but only a Exit (For emergency use) board at the top of the door. The Exit is using a small green light and I can't just grab and pick the Exit board and use it, right?

Yes, I cannot use flash. The saddest thing is that I can only use the High ISO and Wide Aperture.

That's funny. I don't think there are creatures inside a bank.

Very interesting value - 99.31412%. How do you derive that value?

comment How to safely transport a camera and its lens from one place to another?
Maybe buying a weather proof point and shoot may help?

comment How to safely transport a camera and its lens from one place to another?
@forsvarir. Unfortunately, the camera bag that I am holding does not have the padding to minimize the impact of transportation. However, I feel that both dpollitt & RedGrittyBrick have provide good solution for my problem. Thanks.

comment How to Prevent Static Buildup
+1 I am also interested to know too. From what I know, there is a certain RH value that will be balance (or just nice) that it will stop mold and static - which is 40% to 50%. So, I was wondering beside setting such RH value, are there other simple way to prevent static buildup/discharge. Would wearing a Antistatic wrist strap when using a camera in low humidity help?

comment What will happen to a camera if the relative humidity drops to less than 35%?
I was wondering what would be the best humidity level. From what I know, if RH value is above 50%, there might be mold growing on the camera and it will grow faster when it become RH of 60% to 70%. If I store below 40% e.g. storing at 20%, I was wondering if it will kill all the mold (if there is) but will it destroy other parts of the camera.

comment What will happen to a camera if the relative humidity drops to less than 35%?
Actually, the main reason for posting this question is because many forum mention that the camera should be store in a dry cabinet with RH value store between 40% to 50%. Therefore, I was wondering what would happen if we store in RH value other than 40% to 50%. From what I know, if RH value is above 50%, there might be mold growing on the camera and it will grow faster when it become RH of 60% to 70%. If I store below 40% e.g. storing at 20%, I was wondering if it will kill all the mold (if there is) but will it destroy other parts of the camera.

comment What does operating environment's Humidity at Less than 85% (no condensation) mean?
So, can I assume that the 100% relative humidity is actually dark cloud that is going to start to rain?

comment What type of camera can work in extreme weather conditions?
@Ward, Actually my friend have no recommendation of this type of camera because they don't even know if there are such camera that exist and can tolerate such extreme weather conditions and also take good photo.

But I would I know when the environment has a humidity of less than 85%?

@rfusca Nice idea, maybe I should include in the list above & also include during nuclear war conditions. Will the nuclear radiation affect the camera and its photo quality?
