2.0 out of 5 stars Not good value, 27 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 20 of these bulbs about 2 years ago, and I'm now left with 2. It's difficult to be precise about how long each has lasted as they're used in a variety of fitments, but I'd estimate between 1000 and 1800 hours at the very most. I seem to change them frequently. Worst of all though, is that when they fail they invariably trip the lighting circuit, and on a couple of occasions the glass bulb has been explosively ejected onto the floor in a shower of sparks, leaving me to extract the metal base from the lamp holder! Not very safe! The quality may have improved since then, of course. I suppose you get what you pay for. I'm now switching to LED golf-ball lamps; OK the initial investment is not insignificant, but all being well I'll recoup that within the first year through energy saving costs (i.e. 4 watts instead of 40 watts per bulb).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very swish, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering that this is a non-OEM product, it has great fit and finish. Difficult to better, and at a quarter of the cost of the Samsung item (though simulated leather rather than real), I'd thoroughly recommend it. Looks classy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent replacement, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The hose is a decent weight and is more or less a direct replacement. It fits well (though as delivered the rubber seal at the cleaner end needed to be pushed further onto the attachment (easy), over the ridge like it is with the original). Can thoroughly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice design, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of the many non-original cases on the market, this one hits the mark. OK, it's not leather and smells of plastic, but it fits reasonably well, I like the method of attachment (no "elephant ears" around the strap attachments), and there is an elegant simplicity in the way the cover attaches to the body case. It will fit with the adapter ring and thin filter attached, but I just wish it would allow the lenshood to be attached as well (but that's a problem with most other full cases, including Fuji's own).

3.0 out of 5 stars Too thin and a bit too small for Fuji X100S, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a small pouch that I can attach to my backpack, to keep my Fuji X100S in with lenshood attached. Contrary to what one reviewer said, I think it is a bit too short to take the camera properly. Sure, the top can be zipped up, but the padding is thin, too thin in my view for what I need, and the camera somewhat protrudes through the case. A shame really, as I can find no other pouch that will do the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, as ever, 8 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The usual B+W quality. I bought it to go on my new Fuji X100S using the JJC adaptor and lens hood. No problems with the lens hitting the filter in macro mode, as some have reported.

5.0 out of 5 stars To be recommended, 8 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the JJC product and is a lot cheaper than the original Fuji, and to be honest I don't know that it could be bettered. A good fit, it's all metal, the silver matches the camera well, and when fitted with a B+W thin mount glass filter (XSPD) I have no problem with the lens hitting the filter in macro mode, which some have reported.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Extreme' SD to CF Adapter, 4 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this little device because I was not able to back up my photos from the larger capaciity SDHC cards to my Vosonic VP3320. By putting the SDHC card in the adaptor I was able to copy the files via the Vosonic's CF card socket. Only gets 4 stars because the card insertion is not as 'smooth' as with my camera, but that is only a minor quibble.

Not quite sure what SD cards the device will actually support. The package says the device 'supports SDHC/SD/MMC all capacities', but a graphic image indicates up to 64GB, which must be SDXC since SDHC is limited to 32GB. Not a problem for me at the moment though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just to be clear..., 30 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product description is somewhat ambiguous I think, but this is what it does. This nicely made adapter has a 3/8-inch male (i.e external) thread and a 1/4-inch female (i.e internal) thread. In other words, it will allow you to attach a tripod head that has a 3/8-inch threaded hole to a tripod that has a 1/4-inch threaded spigot.
