comment Why is my D3300 taking dull, over exposed pics?
What you may be experiencing is the Sony upping saturation and contract in an effort to make photos look unrealistically "nice" - The photos that you have posted look very natural and have good dynamic range. Its a bit like having always eaten one sort of chocolate and then trying one that is regarded as much better, but you might think its bitter and strong.

comment Lighting needed for 2-D Stop-Motion Video
A VERY important point it to use lighting which has a wide gamut output. Some lamps (eg cheap ccfl) have a very odd output and are missing a lot of wavelength - It may not be obvious to the eye, but the shots can look very flat. I learned this while trying to photograph oil and watercolour paintings to print for a customer.

You have mentioned contrast reduction, but phase detection doesnt rely on contrast, does it?

comment Recognize dry areas by separating diffuse and specular reflections
Yes i'd agree its about obtaining an image, not the processing of, So i'd say it's on topic - although not "arty" enough for some possibly

comment Is there a correct way to swap lenses?
That's fine as long as your pocket VERY clean, and isnt full of lint and bits of string... Otherwise you'll be slowly filling your lens (and camera) with dust.
