Photography Advice

A lot of people email me asking questions about cameras and photography equipment. A lot of the questions are more or less the same.

In order to avoid repeating myself, and in an effort to provide more complete answers than a two-line email permits, I'll post the questions and answers here.

Technology is continually progressing, so I'll try to keep the answers as up to date and relevant as possible. If you find something that's not quite true or is out of date, please email me and let me know so I can fix it.
