I have one of those (maybe not same brand), very practical and nice looking, makes the whole place look very technical instead of messy. I guess this is why people dig that Tesla battery.

I don't know. In terms of sound quality you're probably right but I think why people like the 1200/1210s is that they're very sturdy and very fixable. Like I can barely repair anything but after watching a few videos I've been able to replace the cables, adjust the pitch etc. My pair was used for mixing for at least 10 years before they got to me and they're perfectly fine. DJs also like them because they're standard. Any good club will have a decent pair so you won't need to adjust too much.

Olympus OM-D e-M10 to replace my e-PM2




I know not everyone is crazy about the vintage inspired camera design trend going around (especially with the silver model)...but I can't get over how much this camera looks like my dad's camera I learned how to shoot on:

And a combination of my last 2 posts in this thread (although the macro lens isn't being used at macro length in this situation).

I bet looping power cables creates magnetic fields that interfere with small electrical signals like music and data. Great product otherwise especially for mitigating OCD,lol.

If you are transferring a digital signal (like over HDMI) it really shouldn't matter unless the signal is being carried over a great distance. Besides, this is for power cords. No reason to run your other cables through it.

The OM-1 was my first camera but then I upgraded to an OM-2N. Great camera. Later bought a F100. Still have that and the OM-2N.

Today I bought a Nikon D750 to use with my AFS ED lenses. Build quality is excellent. I briefly had a 7100 but wanted to use all my lenses so I went with full frame.

Best Buy offered great customer service. I was 1.5 to 2 weeks beyond the 15 day return date but the store manager let me trade it in for full value on the D750.

I just bought a used Sony A7.... I'm going to sell it though. It's a nice camera... I love its balance. I didn't like how big FF DSLRs felt. But I can only afford manual lenses for it at the moment, and they are a pain to use. So many missed shots. So I'm going to sell it and go back to Nikon DX. I like the D5500... going to get that, the Sigma 17-55 2.8 OS, the 30 1.4 Art and probably the Nikkor 55-300 or 70-300. I'm bummed because I just took the A7 and some MF lenses to NYC, and while I got some good shots I missed a lot too. And I just don't feel like the Sony FE native lenses are a good value. I had a D40 back in the day and while it was absolutely awful in low light, with the little 35 1.8 it cranked out some pretty images I still look at fondly.

Those new 1.8 primes are awesome. Tamron just came out with some new primes too. And of course Sigma has the ART ones. Lot of good glass.
