comment Paper for Pigment vs Dye Inks?
Certainly from a longevity point of view I would always pick pigment on archival paper, but dye can often give better brighter colours on photo prints if you arent too bothered about handing them down to your grand-children in your will!!

Yes the difference is very noticeable - The epson R800 actually has a clear ink, basically a varnish, to combat this effect.

comment What is the difference between UHS-I & UHS-II Memory Cards for Canon 550D T2i
What do you mean by night shots are slow? are day shots faster? on the Nikons there is a low light anti-noise thing which takes a few seconds per shot, maybe this is your problem... as (negating shutter speed) a night shot shouldnt take any longer to save to the card than a day shot.

comment How is a Bayer filter manufactured?
Nice link - However the article is now 16 years old, so given the MASSIVE increase in ccd/cmos chip density since that, this may not be the current method... for example is it physically possible to create a metal mask fine enough for today's chips?

comment How do I autofill the copyright metadata for the current Lightroom catalog?
Assuming the "date taken" is still intact im sure it would be possible, but i have never tried scripting in LR... Hope someone can help you.

comment What am I legally entitled to do with a photograph I've purchased?
as long as it is 100% for your own personal use (not for public display), I dont see an issue, but it will depend on the terms of the sale as to what you can do with it - is it a physical print or a digital copy?

Oooh good spot! @dav1dsm1th - oddly the actual bayer filter wiki makes no mention of the process, i'll have a read...

comment Why is a Bayer filter with three colors(RGB) preferred over one with two colors and unfiltered (RBNeutral)?
This may be of interest... "Panchromatic cells": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayer_filter#.22Panchromatic.22_cells

Could you not make something? (although I note you say you are a web DESIGNER, not a web DEVELOPER) - I am both so would make something.

yes the invisible spectrum is blocked, but surely all of the other visible wavelengths inbetween reg, green, blue would skew the results, as the estimation of green would be based purely on the luminance of ALL received light...?? im interested to know the answer to this one ! :-)

Are you sure you can determine G from N-R-B??? dont forget the bare sensor is sensitive to a wide wavelength spectrum, not just R/G/B...
