    Underwater Photography

    watch out for bubbles getting in the photo but, don't hold your breath. breath holding = up and down up and down = the bends seen it, not so good.

    Increased Use Of Older Kit

    older lenses can be great, my favourite is a nikkor 180mm f2.8, sharper and better contrast than anything else i've tried but of course a little slow. older cameras i'm not so keen on. my d70 has noticeably worse white balance, colours and noise than my d300. megapixels my not count much, but...

    Apple Mac's

    you just click with your middle finger where the right click should be on the mouse and it knows you're right clicking. or you buy a logitech mouse with loads of buttons ;) on a laptop you simply tap with 2 fingers instead of one. can't live without it once you get used to it. :)
