I love these, have been looking into it as well after that techmoan episode. This one seems  quite pricey though!

Well.. I got my first DSLR camera today, a Canon Rebel T7, a 18-55mm, 32GB SD card, camera strap, camera bag, and 75-300mm lens for a reasonable price. 

20210724_200556.thumb.jpg.f6bdd911ada608ea38b39ef1821bfc14.jpg

Just the 75-300? That's a highly unpractical lens to have. 

Not sure about your budget, but if you have a little extra to spare; The Tamron 17-50 2.8 is a very nice lens for the money.
And the Canon 50mm 1.8 is just a little gem, although 50mm is a bit unpractical on a cropped sensor, may want to consider Sigma's 30mm 1.4 instead.
I'd buy those all second hand at a photo store with a warranty if I were you.
Whatever you do, avoid the 18-55 kitlens, it really isn't great. 
If you 're baffled by all the numbers, feel free to message me. Also; Luminar AI is really epic software to post process RAW photos if you have a computer that's got some balls :D.

Funny enough I need a new chair. My chair leans to the left a bit. All my chairs end up with the same lean, not sure why but they do. Been hard finding the right chair. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

Pure decadence, but it has a feature set that's such a huge upgrade to my X-T2 that I figured I'd take the plunge. 
X-T2 is going to go as soon as the stack of batteries for the X-T4 is in. 
For those interested; I just bought the body, but I'm using it with the MCOPlus 12mm 2.8, Fujifilm 23mm 2.0 WR, Fujifilm 27mm 2.8 pancake, Fujifilm 35mm 2.0 WR and the 16-55 2.8. Also got an old Helios 44-2 with m42 --> FX mount and a Panagor 55mm Macro that I use for digitizing 120 film on a lightbox every now and then. There's also a Samyang flash and a Zhiyun Weebill, and sometimes a Rode Videomic Go although I usually use my Zoom M1 handy recorder. This Fuji does line-level input so I may hook that up to the input. it's become quite the setup by now :D.

Considering the price of the Tamron 17-50 2.8 I really wouldn't want to use that kitlens for a prolonged period of time. Quality aside, having a fast-ish lens with a fixed aperture is just great. Speaking of Tamron; 24-70 2.8 is a gem. I wouldn't go 24-105 on a cropped sensor though (not sure which camera you use but considering the kitlens I'm not expecting a full frame. The equivalent for 24-70 is 17-50 on an APS-C sensor so really, that's your focal length sweetspot for a zoomlens. Other than that, I personally prime whenever I can. it's cheaper, and better.

I think that'll do the trick, I usually buy 2x as much as I think I'll need so when I screw up I have extra because I always screw something up. Don't forget to get some kind of clamps, spring clamps are fine. At first the soft tube will seal itself fine, but as it hardens over time it can begin to leak at the barb fittings. This doesn't apply to compression fittings, the nut IS the clamp.

Got Yu-Gi-Oh Millennium World 1-7 Manga. On my way to completing my Yu-Gi-Oh Manga collection, just Yu-Gi-Oh Duelist 6-24 left to get.

 

And after 10 months of waiting my Kotobukiya Yu-Gi-Oh Dark Magician figure finally arrived, I'm happy but the overall finish and quality is weirdly not as good as Kotobukiya's Yugi figure even though it costs more - Yugi wasn't even as good as Kotobukiya's Ikemen line which a have 3 of and love.

A pair of Citizen data banks. 

 

I was certain that back when I was about 7 I played with such a credit card sized thing that had data storage that my dad had, but despite many tries I had never managed to find what it was again, looked at all the usual sharp, casio etc and never found anything like what I remembered. Came across a photo of a Citizen one last week while browsing other stuff and I finally knew what to search for. There are quite a few models http://www.calcuseum.com/SCRAPBOOK/BRAND/CITIZEN/10.htm, not sure which one we had but I remembered grey and red and that it had time/alarm.

 

Went on ebay and found those 2 in box, MB-260 with no clock and MB-300 with, the latter might be what we had. The MB-300 had a faulty display, decided to try and risk a repair (the front is glued and there's no telling how clean it'll come away so might get all destroyed), the repair worked and while it's not cosmetically perfect anymore at least it works.

Possibly one of the best deals I've gotten ever. Just randomly browsing through the classifieds and came across a RRS BH-55 for the equivalent of $137. Was initially hesitant but eventually took the plunge simply because it was a deal too good to just let it slide. For reference, a BH-55 retails for $455.

 

This is an older revision featuring the previous RRS logo, as the current model features minor refinements like a redesigned knob for the tensioner. Otherwise, same great ballhead.

Yes and no, I like getting lenses with IS as I do alot of low light and other things where its needed.

but fixed sort of I am fine with f4's.

But I am thinking on this one.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/909806-REG/Sigma_884101_17_70mm_f_2_8_4_DC_Macro.html

I am saving for a 80d right now.

But since I don't do a ton of wides, it will fit what I do.

I like having a tiny bit of telephoto.

Not me, I am a person that runs and guns, so changing a lenses is almost a no go.

Also I don't like carrying lenses with me.

F4 isn't a lot of light of course, I usually go 2.8 or better (hence the primes, gets a bit too expensive otherwise). 
I personally would not go for an 80D in these days. There's mirrorless cameras that are way better for less, new. You might want to consider getting a second hand 5D III or so instead. I swapped my 70D for a super oldie 5D II back then and the 5D was just better in every way, including video, surprisingly. 
The problem with lenses that don't have a fixed aperture is that they are generally just less well designed. It's hard to keep the aperture wide while allowing a certain amount of zoom. Which is not to say that that 17-70 is a bad choice, it's actually a really nice lens, but if you'd set it next to Tamron's 17-50 2.8 you'd probably be surprised by just how much sharper the Tamron is (and not because it's a Tamron :D). 
As for runs and guns, in concert photography they say; Guts gets you closer than a zoomlens. At some point you learn to run around more in order to get the frame you want, rather than zooming. This obviously doesn't go for nature photography :D. 
As for carrying lenses; I have one or two pouches on my belt for 'that other lens'. But with them being primes (when I take multiple I don't take my 16-55 2.8, if I take that it's all I take) it's not very much to carry around.

It was a bundle for about ~$200. I'll take a look at that Tamron lens. 

That seems like a fair deal :).

It finally showed up, it sounds great, the UI is terrible but it sounds great

DSD even! What sample/bitrate does it do on WAV? 24/192?
