Unless you sport L-class glass (a professional lens) ... paying heaps for a professional filter is silly.
The protective benefits of any UV(0) at the coast (or in the bush) ... far outweigh that of the optics.
The glare-cutting benefits of any Circular Polariser far outweigh the minute...
It would be rather nice if the releases of CPU, RAM and chipsets could somehow be
magically syncronised to mature almost simultaneously before moving to newer tech.
I mean it almost feels like a three-phase power voltage diagram, all the components mature
in effeciency and performance at...
Nehalem ... Penryn's successor is called Nehalem (due in 2009), we even know that Nehalem

And I can give you letter with a police stamp on it ... the pop-up flash is SHITE!
Believe me, if you get a Gary Fong diffuser, and a REAL flash ... you will not believe the results! ;)
He He He ... yep that's what a career change does for you ... one minute you're modding
the darkest ally on the [H] the next IceCzar launches a non-hostile coup! :D
Seriously though Artwerkers, IceCzar is DA BOMB! He just a
damn swell chap I am happy to hand him the Key to the Citadel of...
Hmmm, the first part of that sentence has a great deal of truth to it. Art is a luxury, and in
