comment Dynamic range of Sony RX-100
I've seen 2TB hard drives go for about $80 these days and that would last you a long time. If it's the case of SD card, those are also pretty cheap these days; $15 would probably get you a 32GB card which should get you over 1000 pictures. I don't know what computer you're using, but it'd have to be pretty old and probably needing replaced anyway (Adobe just announced that PS will work on chromebooks which are some of the cheapest/weakest computers around).

comment Dynamic range of Sony RX-100
RAW files can capture a wider range of information than can be displayed in a JPEG file. If you capture in RAW then you can specify later that certain highlight information should be made darker. Depending on the camera model you may have this option in the form of picture styles, but I think it'd be hard to setup and use effectively. Shoot in RAW (buy a new computer if you have to?) :)

comment Advice on Canon 7D Autofocus problems?
What kind of lighting are you trying to focus in? If it's too bright (like trying to focus on a light bulb), too dark (like night time), or not enough detail to lock onto (a blank wall, for example, then it will do this even if the camera is in perfect working order.

comment What's the difference between zooming in on a subject vs moving closer?
I would like to add that moving closer, all other things being the same, and focusing on the same object, will yield a more shallow depth of field. This can be advantageous in portraits or sports, but disadvantageous when shooting groups of people.

comment Why does increasing sensor size necessarily lead to lower silicon wafer utilization?
@MichaelKjörling This is probably technically feasible, but procedurally impractical. Given the amount of testing that these things would undergo, any change you wanted to make to one sensor type (even just adding a new one or discontinuing an old one) would result in retesting the entire thing.
