If one of your interests is wartime photography then u might want to check out this hour long clip. It includes renown photographers such as Catherine Leroy, David Leeson and Don McCullin. Also they display many photos taken during conflicts some that date as far back as the crimean war depicted by Roger Fenton, up to the current Iraq war.

Many people know the future of war photography is in dangerous place right now, and this is something they talk about.

Its hard enough just getting a good shot at an airshow.....i can only conjecture what it would be like if the AC your shooting with camera is shooting back at you with 20mm.
