Wildlife Conservation Society Birds of Brazil: The Pantanal and Cerrado of Central Brazil (WCS Birds of Brazil Field Guides)
Wildlife Conservation Society Birds of Brazil: The Pantanal and Cerrado of Central Brazil (WCS Birds of Brazil Field Guides)
by John A. Gwynne
Edition: Paperback
Price: 26.95

3.0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable Book, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good written text about each bird. The book is heavy measuring 22.5 x 14 x 2.5 cm and not ideal for carrying around. I bought mine on the return from the trip as the leader was using this book. Th pictures of the birds are not as accurate as they should be. Some of the colours are a bit washed out and do not show the fine detail. I am not a birder and wanted the book so that I can identify some of the birds from my photographs. The book is ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic Canon Battery, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They may be pricey but they are worth it. Third party batteries do not work as well. They do not hold their charge for as long and the camera does not recognise the battery. Canon is reliable and best..

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative to Canon flash cord., 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a Canon flash cord and wanted another one, but as they are very expensive I bought this one. It is well made, sturdy and just as good as a Canon original. It does not stretch a great distance, probably less than 90cm (3feet), but I find this far enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extending arms for flash, 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very well made piece of equipment. It is sturdy yet not heavy to carry. The arms are flexible and quite tight but this means they stay in the position you place them. The plate has two screws, which do not tighten by the use of an allan key. There is a small handle you can grip to tighten them and this is easier than the usual methods. I have a Canon twin lite for my macro lens and initially found that the lights did not slide into the fittings on the arms. The horseshoe type fitting was of no use. However, this comes off and the flash units can be screwed onto the arms. The arms keep the lights further from your subject making the resulting photo look natural and not illuminated by flash. This is worth buying and opens up new lighting opportunities for lighting.

I purchased this so I can use it when I travel abroad. It is small,lightweight and ideal for travelling. The cups fit inside neatly and are adequate for providing enough water for 'cup a soup'. Delighted with the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instead of Canon, 2 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well built, sturdy tripod ring for the new Canon 100mm f2.8L macro lens and it does the job perfectly, holding the lens securely. It is very easy to fit, well finished off and a lot cheaper than the Canon version. It is a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spare lens cap, 9 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a spare lens cap and it does the job well. It is similar to another brand but about one fifth of the price. It is well made and should stand the test of time. This is a good buy.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product, but far too expensive. I lost mine and thought I had better replace it with a sigma one, but a cheaper one would have done the same job. It is solid and well made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb Bean Bag, 9 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to buy a ready filled bean bag and not have the hassle of trying to get one filled with beans or rice abroad. This double one is ideal as it is very lightweight but performs beautifully. I use it on the ground for macro photography or to rest my Canon 1D and Canon 100-400 lens plus converter on it. There is no problem with the heavier items. Recently I used it whilst in the car with the window down and balanced the bean bag and camera on the window sill. It has a small strap, a few centimetres long, which means it can be clipped on to a belt or a rucksac. It has received 4 stars rather than 5 because it rustles slighty, but this is not a problem when the bag is in situ. I am delighted with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Canon Battery, 17 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I reluctantly bought this battery, as a spare, for my Canon 1D Mk 1V, as I feel it is overpriced, but it is brilliant. It holds the charge well, especially in cold conditions. I have just returned from Antarctica. Previously I bought a third pary battery and it is useless, as it cannot hold the charge for any length of time.
It may be expensive but it is worth every penny. You do not want a flat battery when you are about to take amazing photos.
Excellant service from Amazon as usual.
