Nikon D3500 For Dummies Book

I get the title is catchy and I always learn something, but geez nothing like feeling stupid 🙂 I’d guess over half the book applies to all photography, not just the Nikon D3500 operation. I did visit Nikon’s own website (Japan) to watch a video, where I learned I’ve been pronouncing it wrong. It’s “knee-con instead of nigh-con” and some even say “Nick-on”.  Seems there are lots of post about how you’re supposed to say Nikon.  Bet they don’t care how you say it as long as you buy their brand.

Thought I’d gotten a new tripod, but no.

I didn’t like the new Alta Pro2+  in person after all the research I did as much as I did on paper.  Video is 15 minutes of my thoughts on the two tripods.  I’m sure the same things that bug me, you may like and vice-versa but I really look to these videos when I’m looking at getting new gear and wanted to give back. I’ve learned that if I don’t process the video right away it sits in a folder while I forget everything I wanted to share. Hence why you haven’t seen the final review of my photography backpacks!
