I am having trouble find a place that rents out digital cameras.
I am looking to either rent a Nikon D50, D70, or D100 or possibly, a Canon Digital Rebel XT. (Renting time-frame, 2-3 days.) I am wondering if anyone had any experience with renting high-end digital cams such as these and which place I should trust. I called up a couple of places where I live (Boston, MASS) and none of them offered this.

Last year I used the program GalleryRemote to upload 300pics to a pretty crappy photohosting website
. My HD recently crashed and I want to retrieve all the photos easily, but can't - how can I do it? [more inside]

I just built a tiny pinhole camera that mounts onto a 110 film cartridge. The directions I've found call for using a coin to turn the tiny gear to advance the film. I can't get that to work really at all. Any advice? [more inside]

Uploading pictures to Flickr via Treo? I just noticed this service called ShoZu that is an app for certain phones to easily up load cameraphone pictures to Flickr. I'm sad to report the Treo isn't listed as being supported.
So my question is, do any of you know of any palm apps that let you upload pictures to flickr in any way other than email???

I have the opportunity to buy an used x Wacom intuos graphics tablet to use with my photoshop program. It would cost about $85.00 with shipping. It is being offered on e-bay without the software that the owner says is free to download from the Wacom site. My question is to those of you with Wacom experiance, would it be better for a newbe to go for the more expensive (new) wacom to take advantage of the provided software and hard copy instructions or do you think a person that is reasonalbly technologically proficient with computers / downloading etc. be able to get up to speed using advice typically found on the internet? Thank you...

Help me identify the location of this photo. So far I know it's in Finland, and it's an annual traditional event. It's a photo of 6 kids dressed as gnomes, taking part if a tug-of-war. [more inside]

Photosearch: I'm looking for a photo from the 2003 NY blackout. It's of a single building that still had light due to having a fuel cell. It may be the Central Park police station (but maybe not) and it may have appeared in the NYT.

I need to make a DVD photo slideshow - ie you stick the DVD in your common-garden DVD player, and it gradually goes through the photos on there.
Can you please recommend any freeware software that'll do this? Everything seems to charge, and I'm a cheapskate ;-)

After searching Google and the archives of AskMe, I've come across some great suggestions and ideas for making digital photo frames
. From what I can determine, however, all of these require a computer
of some kind built into the frame. Supposing one only has a laptop screen? Specifically, the screen from an old ThinkPad with a blown motherboard
. Could I connect the monitor to my network somehow? Hook it up to some special circuit board designed for just this sort of thing?

Why do digital SLRs have no shutter lag and digital P&Ss (even expensive ones) have a bad case of it? What's the technical reason I mean (I am not an engineer)? In fact, most people who still don't like digital mention shutter lag as a major problem of digital photography. Thanks.

What is the website that one can upload a photograph and convert that image into what looks like a famous painting (Modigliani , van Gogh etc). I recall it used some type of face recognition software algorithms.

T-ShirtFilter- online sources for mannequins? I'd like to have "inaction shots" of a bunch of t-shirts, but I'm not sure how to word my google searches. I'm currently finding nonsense.

Help my non-profit's photo problem! The non-profit organization I recently started working with has nearly 2,000 photos from years past that I'd like to sort in a meaningful fashion, whether by filenames and folders or with a program. I'd like people to be able to browse/search by date, the program involved (After-School, Food Pantry, etc), and the activity going on in the photo. The clincher: Must be easy to use, free, and can run on Windows 98. [more inside]

I am hoping that one of the Google-masters here can help me where I have failed. I am looking for an old photo of Scottie Pippen with a large swelling on his forehead. Approximately ten years ago, he bumped his head during a game and the bump swelled to the size of a golf-ball... sticking out of his forehead. Thanks in advance.

Is there alternative photo organizer software for OS X? iPhoto is driving me nuts. I'm not interested in anything that costs money -- just a reliable free download that will organize and display photos. Thanks.

Is there such a thing as free photo editing software? My 6-months-free-with-computer deal ran out, and Microsoft Paint isn't worth a plug nickel. All I really want to do is resize and crop pictures easily. If there's nothing decent available for free, then I'd be interested in the dirt-cheap category of software, too.

I have a Nikon d70 (and an n80) and several lenses, the longest of which zooms to 200mm. I have a remote for the d70 (and a cable-release for the n80). I have a mediocre tripod. My yard is filled with birds. What do I need to know to optimize my chance at great bird photos? Is it merely a matter of patience and luck? Does anyone here have experience with bird photography?

Which credit card companies offer custom photos on their cards? I know Bank of America lets you do the "photo expressions," and it covers half of the card, but I remember a while back seeing an advertisement in a magazine from a credit card company that let you pick a photo that basically covered the entire card.
Anyone know what I'm talking about?

At the end of next week, I will be embarking on a move from the New York City area to San Jose, California. I have this brilliant (or slightly overzealous) idea to "geophotopodcast" my way across the country using a combination of different technologies, so my friends back home can keep up with my adventures. What suggestions can you offer me for making my high-tech travelog cooler / easier to execute? [more inside]

Okay, so everyone loves DaShiv's photographs of SF Meetups, and for good reason. They are incredible. I can take decent photos, but they're obviously amateurish. Here's my question: How do I take it to the next level? How can I get the colors to look as brilliant as DaShiv's, for instance (just an example; I'm sure that there are many other styles of photography that I am not aware of)? What equipment do I need? What software do I need? What type of training is required? BTW, I run a Mac and have a little cash to burn. Thanks in advance.

two photography questions in one:
a. Does the Bronica ETRC have a double-exposure button/lever? If so, how do I use it? I know the ETRS does, but I can't seem to find one on my ETRC.
b. How can I take long time exposures on my Canon Powershot S70? I bought this because I wanted a lot of manual control, and I know it doesn't have a bulb setting, but is there a way to set really long (i.e., 60 second plus) exposures for tripod/night landscapes?
