comment Which is more efficient when shooting weddings: interpolating sRAW or shooting in jpeg?
agreed - but I use a D800... and 4GB CF cards. (and a permanent 4GB SD as an overflow) Personally I like being limited to say 50 shots per card, it makes you think more about each shot.

comment Why is shutter speed usually limited to 30 seconds?
Thanks - I really find it odd that there isn't a simple manual entry mode eg next to bulb where you can just set say 48 seconds and leave it to it. Might be a nice little thing for someone do do in a custom firmware (wink wink nudge :-) - D800 please!)

comment Why do my Cybersyncs fire my Sunpak flashes with the test button, but not the shutter release?
2 things come to mind: It sounds like either the camera isnt sending the signal to the transmitter or the transmitter isnt receiving a signal for some reason - check EVERYTHING including your in-camera settings.

comment Why does my photo look great in Lightroom but show sharpening halos on my web site?
Have you tried viewing the uploaded images on another computer? i wander if it ma be a browser oddity? unlikely, but possible...

comment Are meteors dim?
I was referring mostly to the type expected this week - small and very fast - burn up very quickly

comment Are meteors dim?
correction: the meteor would illuminate the sensor for a FRACTION of a second.

comment Are meteors dim?
true, but not all meteors are the same brightness, if you say it was only as bright as a star then it was indeed rather dim by meteor standards.
