D.J.'s Holiday Wish List

So far you've seen holiday wish lists from Kate, Mark, and Adam, so today you get to see my list!   I know you're all excited to see what I want. So let's kick it off (no pun intended) with:

Manchester City Meltdown

Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola's squad is running away with the Premier League and it's not even Christmas time. They currently sit 11 points ahead of second place Manchester United. As a Manchester United supporter, I would love to see a meltdown in the new year and have Manchester United catch them, but at this point, I would rather see a competitive second half of the season versus having the title clinched weeks before the season ends. The city squad is well assembled and well coached, so it should be no surprise that they sit way above their rivals. I want a competitive EPL title race in 2018

Cubs Bounce Back Year

Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series Rally

The Chicago Cubs have made three straight NLCS and won the World Series in 2016. You know how many other times that has happened in the history of baseball? None. However, even though the Cubs made the 2017 NLCS and lost to the Dodgers, it felt like a disappointing year. Does that sound a bit spoiled? Sure, but for as long as us Cubs fans waited for decent ownership and a well-assembled franchise, you can't waste any years, especially in the years of free agency and what seems like the most injury prone period in baseball history. Call me spoiled, greedy, etc, but I want another World Series for the Cubs in 2018.

New DSLR Camera

Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera

Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera

It's no secret that we need a new camera with video capabilities. While you can film a lot of great footage using the cameras built into the smartphones, you need a good camera to take still shots and video. Now if you're looking for a good camera that's a hybrid of quality, features, and price, check out the Nikon D3300. It's not the newest camera in the series but unlike the D3400, the D3300 has a plugin for an external microphone kit. At about $400 for a new version and less for the certified refurbished, this camera will surely impress without draining your bank account.

Saramonic WM4CA Wireless Microphone

Saramonic WM4CA Wireless Mic Kit

If you're looking for a good wireless handheld microphone to pair with the D3300, look no further than Saramonic WM4CA Professional Portable Wireless VHF Handheld Microphone.   At $119.95, this microphone will give you a good wireless option to record good quality video and have top-notch sound on a budget. This microphone receiver also can clip onto your DSLR flash connection at the top of the camera, so no need to haul around long cables or wear the receiver on your belt. I'd love to have a new camera and wireless microphone kit.

Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanza, and Happy New Years to all!


-D.J.
