comment How do I export a picture from Lightroom without the original?
You may want to review how LR manages its files. The catalog contains a preview, a sometimes smaller version of the whole file, so that some work may be done without the entire file available. With LR5 and smart previews this has become more powerful, but the catalog is separate from your files. When you import your files pay attention to if you're "adding," "moving," or "copying" as each is distinctly different in how they're handled at the time and in the future.

comment What can I use as a 'holster' to keep DSLR handy but secure while hiking?
I have a Spider holster now as well and it's a godsend to have the weight on my waist rather than my shoulders.

comment Hong Kong legal issues when taking photos
From what I understand, and IANAL, the typical issue around model releases is not if you're allowed to take the image, but how you're allowed to use it. Also, this is a legal question; you wouldn't ask your barber for medical advice so you probably shouldn't ask photographers for legal advice.

comment Difference between Canon cameras and lens?
@BartArondson Sounds similar to 'the most important equipment in photography is 6 inches behind the lens.' Great pictures have been taken with the worst equipment (see DigitalRev's cheap camera, pro photographer challenge on YouTube) and terrible pictures have been taken with the best equipment. Knowledge is key and there is no substitute, no matter what the sales rep says.

comment Why do two zoom lenses set to 200mm on the same camera produce different fields of view?
Could you possibly repeat your test, but use a ruler instead of a doorknob and indicate the distance from the camera to ruler and upload/link those files in your post/question? And don't crop the photos.

comment Can Lightroom facilitate the consolidation of 2 external drives to a third?
Think of DNG as a vendor agnostic RAW format; in this context it doesn't matter if you use DNG or not. What I would do (and did) was import your hierarchy as it is, then create a new one that is in the new format and move images over within LR. As you empty folders, delete them until they're all gone. Alternatively, you could set the destination of the import(s) to one folder.
