Bought this Canon Powershot SX540hs

http://www.letsgodigital.org/images/...ot-sx540hs.jpg

And for the price, 300 euro, it is pretty bad, this was a pic on auto mode and the grain on this picture is disgusting, even with manual iso and shutter tweaks its still there.

Picture of the grain, make it full size to notice proper.

I Don't understand how people reviewed this positive really, i know people have different standards but yeah... taking it back tomorrow and go for a Dslr starter pack in the form of a Canon 1300D, should do me a lot better.

For photography you would really need to understand the settings of the specific camera to get the best out of it. You can buy the next one up but that doesn't really mean it will take better pictures if you do not learn the features of the specific camera.

I been shooting with it for a quite a bit today, different iso, shutter settings, compression settings, image size settings, all different things, comparisons and yeah it can be okay, but i've had better camera results for less money then this thing, it has 50x zoom and 1080p 60 fps video recording which are nice features but no, this is below average really.

Yeah those images aren't very good at all.
A basic DSLR will perform better for the same money, and the option to swap out to better lenses.

I have been trying to get use to my Canon 1200D but everytime I manually set anything the images just look garbage.

This was done on Auto+

http://i.imgur.com/cybld0V.jpg

Looking at the file information it say's it was shot at:

ISO 100

Shot 1/125

F/7.1 28mm

Resolution is 5184*3456

I really need to start looking in to the setting's more on this camera but because it's called so many different things in different, countries trying to find videos on it is quite difficult.

Not bothered with a drain port. It's very easy just to remove the CPU block (four screws) and stick a bucket under it.

Thats because they are smarter than us.. by making the draing valve a female connection we have to shell out extra male connectors, F-Block or Q-Blocks, Stopper plugs etc. Would be nice to have the compression connectors or fitting pre-attached. I think Bitspower do this on some of their rotaries, but not the drain valve.

I actually find their "fill port" better used as a pass through that what its actually for. Makes routing of tubing through panels and walls much cleaner.

Bitspower are crafty M-Fers tbh. I bought two of their 90' fittings with G 1/4. I figured I would screw them into the GPU and then bring the hoses out horizontally. Only when you screw them in they do not leave enough height to put a fitting into them. So you then have to buy extenders too :eek:

I was annoyed is putting it mildy. Yes I only paid 2 each but usually they are well over 20. Very naughty to sell a fitting like that IMO.

What annoyed me the most was that after I had bought all of the bits to make the T piece (6 for a XSPC T piece and then it gobbled up three BP fittings) I found a silver T piece with it all built in for 3.

*RAGE*. Ah well, it's done now.

Sounds like you bought the shorter rotaries. They sell ones with same dimensions as EK, Barrow rotaries etc.

Ta. They're not perfect.. Customer returns. In the photos they look absolutely mint. You can see they have hardly been used by the ear pads. The guy says that the left headphone is slightly lower in sound than the right, and that it throws off the stereo image.

I gots two options.

1. Try and balance it out using Windows (balance on the sound card)

2. Replace the driver for 100. Even at 160 that's still ridiculously cheap.

The thing is? I know they will be no match for my Grados. Nothing is. I often change over to my bigger cans for some bass laden fun, then when I put the Grados on it feels like I've been wallowing through mud and just had a cold shower. The only thing the Grados lack is low end punch and grunt, but everything else is untouched by every other pair of cans I own. Thing is as I get older I find myself listening to music quieter than I did when I was young and thus don't mind not having the bass on tap.

They will likely just end up in the boneyard with all of the others (on the pole lol) so I don't know if I will be bothered enough to repair them. My BD Custom One Pro had the same issue and I put up with it for 15 months before returning them.

Actual pics. As you can see from the headband and cups they've not been worn much because usually headphones look terrible with flash.

NeverBackDown 26-05-17 10:52 PM

I mean to me I would replace the driver and still be happy with that value. But if you already have a bunch of headphones and only basically use one can, it's probably not worth it:)

AlienALX 26-05-17 11:05 PM

Yeah they would have to be something else for me to replace my Grados and from what I've seen they're not :D Those who paid 600 for them swear up and down they're the best cans they've ever heard, those who didn't say they're bass light and too bright.

I asked the seller if they had ever been taken apart. He insisted they are like new and have never been opened and I believe him. It might even be something daft like a pinched wire or a short tbh.

As I say if I can balance it out and get them running reasonably evenly at a modest volume that will be more than enough for me to give them an audition, and I usually go back to my Grados and they just get chucked on the bar haha. I try in life to sell as little as I can, because that is where you will see the worst sides of human nature (greed, basically). People would sell their own mother to get something cheap and I have no faith in humanity as it is...

So yeah, don't sell much and never sell headphones. They're small and light and easy to store, so I like collecting them. Mrs Alien says I'm not allowed to collect bikes or computers so I guess it's the next best thing :D

The 1080 Ti isn't mine, It's a friends and I'm using it while he is working away, Upgrading the cooling solution on it to a hybrid kit, With his money and by his request.

I got a refund for the 580's, I wasn't happy with the performance so have put it aside for Vega :)

Oh well to be fair, the Beyer T1 did come out virtually 3 years earlier, so for the same price the Grados are, you would expect them to be better.
Beyers came out beginning of 2011 and the Grados around March 2014 afaik. So I would expect them to be much better.
Now if you compared to the T1s successor, the Beyer Amiron, I'm sure it would be a much closer match:)

Very probably yes. I guess again it comes down to taste, but the Grados are as close to perfect as I've heard. The detail and soundstage is just mind blowing. If they had the lower end? dear god, I don't think anything at any price could beat them.

I don't really buy headphones trying to beat them any way. That could be done but would mean stepping up a level from 500 headphones and start auditioning more expensive ones which isn't about to happen any time soon. I just like a change now and then, and considering I spend about 14 hours + a day wearing the things a change can be good.

I literally use all of them.

My Sony batteries for my e-cig started peeling a little around the top the other day. They're around six months old and they keep making the cig cut out. Annoying. So I ordered a couple of sammy 3000MAH.

http://i.imgur.com/RpjD2jc.jpg

And finally ! those of you who have seen the wreck that is my Razer Goliathus will know I promised myself one of these a year ago. I've gone to buy one several times, but never liked any of them. This Tek Syndicate one was awesome though and only 6 inc with Prime.

My Razer is 900x450 IIRC. Thing is my mouse mat is half on half off, so I got a 250mm deep one as I don't need it that deep :)

I like Samsung batteries, they seem to last longer than Sony or LG in terms of charging and using them. I have 6 Samsung 25R's and a couple of LG's and then LG's normally only last me about 4 hours but a pair of the Samsung's last around 7 hours, although I am using them in my Smok Alien 220w at 100w with my TF-V12 tank.

AlienALX 29-05-17 01:54 PM

I forget what I am using now itazte VTR? it only uses the one battery at a time. The Sonys are OK, just not really built to be used a lot. My wife has the Sammys, so I just repeated the order on Amazon. They took quite a bit longer to charge than my Sonys, so hoping that is because they will last longer.

I stopped using dual coils lately because it was making me feel really sick and dizzy. Plus of course the raging thirst. So I dug through the drawers and found my wife had a 4 packs of coils stashed. Just the old Kangertech 2 ohm single coils. Wasn't going to turn my nose up at 20 free coils though, so I just dug out my old aerotank which just about fits the VTR and I use that now. Going through a lot less liquid too !

I bought myself a project for a whopping 15 inc. (that includes the veneer @ 5 lol)

http://i.imgur.com/NmT8WKa.jpg?1

http://i.imgur.com/apZpJUV.jpg?1

And what it will hopefully resemble.

http://i.imgur.com/XgCtVfq.jpg?1

Note it says "Bass on Musical Fidelity X10-D" well apparently it is. It's also about ten times cheaper and from the reviews I read equally as good.

I kinda cocked up before by first buying a Little Dot MK1 and falling in love with it, then thinking that the LD2 would be better so when the LD1 packed up I ordered the more expensive LD2. Sadly all valve power meant that it was not enough to drive some of my headphones and would distort. As a last gasp effort I ended up running the pre out only line out of the LD2 into my Graham Slee Novo. The sound was incredible. Sadly it seems these amps are all made like crap so the LD2 failed and Amazon did not have any more in stock. It failed in exactly the same way. Left channel went missing, came back if you tipped the valve or pressed on the body. Obviously some guy can't solder properly. So I am going to make my own pre replacement. I've chosen this for the top.

I love how you done your AIO tubing like that, but unless your fans on the radiator are intakes, you gonna have a heck of a dust problem with all fans exhausting like this. switch the bottom fans around to have em as intakes.
