You want to hear something really dumb? I kind of want to upgrade the "paddle shifters" on my manual transmission Camaro. They just turn rev matching on and off, but I wouldn't mind if they looked cooler.
I don't adjust the f stop a whole lot. Usually leave it one spot and then adjust the shutter speed as needed. I feel like its hard to gauge if you have things right just by looking at the screen on the camera. Sometimes it'll look good on the camera and then I see it on the pc and it's way darker or lighter than I figured it was going to be. I take the same picture like 4-5 times with different shutter speeds to make sure I get at least one decent picture.
