comment Should I switch from D300s to D700?
save up and buy a new camera - the D700 is 6 years old now, and misses many features seen on new cameras.

comment Why doesn't my fisheye adapter gives fisheye distorsion on my APS-C DSLR?
You don't need an adapter to try it on the 35mm, just hold it over the lens and try it!

comment Does a larger sensor resolution increase the difficulty of shooting hand-held?
@clabacchio - yes you are right, sorry I was suffering with flu yesterday, my head felt like it was on backwards :-)

comment How to best prepare, print, and display night photos?
Its not a complete answer so I wont submit one: Paper is VERY important for dark images. I have found that glossy / lustre media is best for giving really deep blacks (you want black to be BLACK don't you!) and quality matters - I have seen various cheap photo papers that produce a sort of slightly milky haze where ink is very heavy.

comment Canon 5D Mk II shoots only 2.1 FPS burst instead of 3.9 claimed, why?
Do you have Noise Reduction turned on? this WILL lower your frame rate.

comment 2 lenses came with my Nikon D3200, but no adapter. What do I need to buy to use these lenses?
We need more information on the exact make and models of these lenses to be able to help you, they may not be of any use at all.

comment Can I tether a Firewire only camera to a USB only computer?
@Olli - I just bought one on ebay! They certainly exist... I would do that, BUT my laptop doesnt have a PCMCIA / Cardbus slot either (nice machine though, Dell XPS 14z)

comment how do I get a black background on a portrait in post?
I'm sorry to say that this would be pretty much 100% impossible without it looking hilarious. the main problem (as always) is the hair.

comment Why the trend of faded vintage photography?
These photos have been annoying me for a good 2 years now. I hope to god that 2 years is the full life-span of this tacky insta-fad. (end angry rant)

comment Why don't cameras provide you with DOF information?
@MichaelClark - please note in this case I did specify "to give an IDEA of the DOF " - they really are "dumbing down" lenses aren't they!

comment Why don't cameras provide you with DOF information?
no, they are even referred to in the user manual (for that lens) as "Depth of Field Markings" - Not sure what you mean, Subject distance is marked on the distance scale..

comment Same Lightroom Catalog changes colour tone on different machines?
Could it be a difference in local colour profiles?

comment Why are there no DSLR cameras with protective curtains for lens exchange?
@Hugo - the Sigma SD1 Merrill has a GLASS element, not quite what you were referring to...

comment About Raw file format of Hasselblad H5D
We're probably going to ASSUME Its the Hassel-back.

comment Can I use these old lenses from DVT vision systems on modern cameras?
Some sort of tele-converter should be able to get around the image circle size problem, at the expense of a longer exposure...

comment Do colors in photographs depend on ambient temperature?
@OlinLathrop - you say "the sensitivity of blue drops off more quickly with cold than does the sensitivity of green and red." (Slide film) - Would this then actually have the opposite effect? meaning there is LESS blue in cold-film images?

comment Do colors in photographs depend on ambient temperature?
Ahh I missed that one! I was trying to find the "Site Guidelines" that Michael referred to in his edit comment. I have therefore changed my answer back to Ye Olde ENGLISH :-) (Because I'm in that sort of mood today!)
