Pinned toot

Greetings! If you're new to Mastodon, welcome! If not, glad to meet you!

I first tried Mastodon back in May 2017, but I did very little with it until about five months ago. Since then, it's been exciting to see the network grow by leaps and bounds!

About Me: I run my own instance at OpenWeb.social and recently moved my account there. I blog at jaredwhite.com and record a weekly podcast called The Jared White Show celebrating the open web. I love hiking, synth music, and coffee.

This toot comes to you courtesy of iOS 12 which is now running on my iPhone 7 Plus. I sort of forgot what all the new stuff is so I need to read some reviews to figure out what I should fiddle with. One thing's for sure — the UI is Snappy(tm)! 🤜🏻🤛🏻

While the Canon 77D is missing a few features that high end professionals require, and it's not a fullframe camera so that might be a dealbreaker for some photographers, for what I need to accomplish, it's simply perfect for my needs.

Paired with my 24mm or 50mm prime lenses, the picture quality is stunning. I can zoom so far into the picture and read tiny little text on far away road signs, text I'm not even sure I can read with my naked eye.

So, need a new camera? Check out the 77D!

So I'm a long-time Canon shooter, but for a few years I've only used an EOS M (yes the original) which was kind of a terrible product.

Recently I picked up a Canon 77D DSLR. Even though Canon's mirrorless camera line has gotten *way* better in the last year or two, I decided I like the bigger, chunkier body feel of DSLRs.

I'm happy to report that the 77D is absolutely blowing me away. It's an order of magnitude better than any other camera I've ever owned.

@Commandzed Welcome to Mastodon & the OpenWeb.social instance! (sorry I didn't introduce myself sooner, I didn't notice your sign up previously)

Guess I'm ready to sell a kidney so I can buy that 512GB iPhone Xs Max! 🤣

Greetings! It's another Moment on my podcast today: talking about the 2.5 release and the question of how to handle moderation, mobs, and more. Plus lots of other good stuff (crazy racist reviews of Crazy Rich Asians on IMDB, for example). All this and more right here!

Been going through my photos at Cannon Beach this summer and picking out the cream of the crop. This is one of those places that gets hyped up as a big tourist destination, but it's absolutely justified. One of the best oceanside experiences I've ever had my life.

This is, quite simply, the most perfect Apples to Apples match one could possibly hope for.

Hi, everyone!

I'm from the Philippines. Everyone is scared here. When I speak against the current governtment my family/friends are concerned for my life. People who believe the government's propaganda thinks I'm crazy.

I guess I just needed a place to share my thoughts.

I used to not care about these things, though my parents were strong activists during Marcos' time.

Now I think I'm slowly waking up to the harsh reality that our country is now being run by a dictator.
