    1. Frustrated with my Nikon D3500 and looking for advice on upgrading

      Got it last summer and been having and absolute blast with it, got a macro tube and a bigger 55-300 lens to play with. But time and time again I keep running into annoying little limitations. This...

      Got it last summer and been having and absolute blast with it, got a macro tube and a bigger 55-300 lens to play with. But time and time again I keep running into annoying little limitations.

      This model doesn't have a shutter release input thing, so remote shutter is locked behind a falling apart android app>bluetooth connection. There's a tonne of small little things like this that I wish I looked into before making the purchase

      Essentially - right now I'm thinking that I want to upgrade the actual dslr before investing any more into lenses, but I'm a bit too out of touch to know what the good models to go for 2nd hand or whatever.

      Are there any tildoes out there that have some experience with older but capable bodies?

      I've been trying to create youtube videos on a new channel (empty for now).

      format

      The video format I thought of was getting a few friends on a joint call, and just talking about a certain topic for that day in a socratic circle discussion.

      topics discussed

      Since i'm interested in Linux, one of my first topics will be about the argument of linux on the desktop. Would it benefit from more users? Is linux evangelism for good? can we get rid of the elitism stigma?

      Is there anything I can do to refine this kind of video format, and actually gain an audience that can see and appreciate the content. My goal here isn't to make money, but to supply the site with good content.

    5. Home brewing

      So, I'm currently working up 2 1 gallon apfelweing batches. For a while I was doing many 6 gallon batches, but took a break for a while, and getting back into it. Any other homebrewers out there?...

      Hi, I wonder if there are people here likes to collect watches. If so, please share about the watch that you're wearing right now, or maybe your watch collection.

      As for me, I own a few of Seiko mechanical watches (SNK809, SKX013, and the SARB017), and a couple of Casio digital watches (Casio Royale and W217H)

      Lately I'm starting to appreciate quartz watches even more and I'm starting to look at vintage Seiko and Citizen quartz watches.
