comment Why am I getting a different look with Huey Pro on a LED monitor?
I only just came across this, very interesting, as my Huey worked perfectly well on my CCFL (Viewsonic) LCD monotors, but made my laptop (LED LCD) look terrible.

comment Does the Sony wireless remote commander (hardware, not the app) focus before firing a shot in Manual?
Had you set the camera to manual EXPOSURE or manual FOCUS?

comment How close are we to the sensor pixel size limit?
As worded, only physical pixel size is relevant to the question.

@SailorCire - the OP is talking about physical pixel size, not the number of them...

comment Taking care of first DSLR
No they are built to be used, they are designed to always have a lens mounted. If you are treating it badly enough to damage the lens mount in transit you really should stop throwing it at walls!

comment Why does my camera no longer display in the Photoshop Elements dropdown?
Can you see the camera in "My Computer"?, have you tried a different cable?

comment Is it true that all current browsers and OSes are “color managed” now?
Even if colour management is used, the users' screen still needs to be profiled physically to guarantee being anywhere near correct.

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.

comment Why do phase-detection focusing sensors not like linearly polarized light?
You have mentioned contrast reduction, but phase detection doesnt rely on contrast, does it?

What do you mean by a "Mobile sensor"? Do you mean one in a mobile phone?
