Short of a green background for indoor wildlife shots? Post a bunch of tips on this thread, and Chris'll turn 'em green in no time at all. Voila! Wink

Toilet paper and some electrical tape = student defuser.

And always carry your camera on you!

At an interview for a photojournalism degree course this year I was the only person with a camera on them.

You never know what will happen on the way to the shops!

For Landscape Photography a Map and Compass.
You can then find out where you are and in what direction you are focussing... aiding the identification of distant features, e.g. hills / curches etc.

In my memory card wallet I have the ones I have used facing inwards, and empty ones with the company logo facing out, this way you can pull out a fresh one ready for shooting, it's not Stephen Hawking genius but it makes things a tad simpler.

Blatant product promotion for Lexar there Carl? I'm sure you wouldn't accept any free goodies from them if say a lexar employee was browing this thread would you... lolz.................

I of course use the wonderful products from SANDISK..THAT SANDISK, their brilliant ULTRA II cards, and of course the blistering write times of the EXTREME IV's which never let me down, did I mention I love the SANDISK products just incase anyone from SANDISK is reading this thread

put a card/film ion the camera BEFORE you start to shoot.

make sure you lens is attached to cam properly beofre waving it around (my 24-105 "fell off" last weekend , luckily no damage but i dont think that UV filter will ever filter anymore UV)

If your camera has a twin memory card slot, put it to good use and load a card in each.

Its very easy to go out forgetting your spares, this way at least you have one.

In many cases you can swap cards without opening the card door.

I use a couple of Sandisk pouches that were supplied with their cards and have them clipped to the camera straps with 2 CF cards in each.

Don't drop a Canon 5D on to block paving :-(

When you use a flash like my good old Metz 45 CT-1, which has a base that screws onto the bottom of the camera, and then has the flash clipping onto the base, always carry the camera by the strap, not by just hanging onto the flash. That way, when the link joining the flash to the camera fails, the flash falls instead of the camera.

Luckily, when it happened to me, the camera landed on my foot, then rolled onto the pavement. Appears undamaged, still works.
