5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable Quality!, 29 July 2012
I would give these 6 stars if I could, they should be twice the price.
I've been pondering over some two way radios for a while to save roaming charges abroad. We often go away with another couple who stay in a different apartment or hotel and can rack up some ridiculous charges sending texts and calling to arrange meeting up places and times. Also if the women folk go off mindless shopping whilst the men pass the time sat in bars, you can keep each other up to date with movements etc.
The deciding event was the National 3 Peaks which was completed this weekend. I read some reviews and settled on these but thought I wouldn't get much for £40 but they'd do. How wrong I was!
Set off from Ben Nevis Inn with one handset leaving the other with Dave the support driver. Line of sight went out of the window after only a few hundred yards and 1.5 miles in and numerous ridges and hills in the way I tried Dave. Clear as a bell he came back. At 4 miles in and 4000ft up I tried again thinking "no way".They're advertised at 8km range but I expected that would be line of sight in perfect conditions. Again clear as bell Dave came back. I only lost him right at the top where it levels out. Awesome performance.
Scafell next in thick mist at 2am and again they transmitted and received almost up to the summit. Snowdon next and worked fine just up to 100yds from the top. All 3 peaks were in thick cloud with driving rain so I had the handset in a snap bag, which didn't affect sound quality at all. Dropped it on some rocks but they're robust enough to keep working faultlessly.
Overall if you're looking for some two way radios under £50 then look no further. It's almost criminal that these are going for £40 and not more.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Next?, 25 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How far can this size of camera go! The build quality is excellent, much more robust than my previous SX220, and the 20x optical zoom is outrageous in a camera this size. Packed full of features with manual control if you want to take over. Took it to the Isle of Man TT this year and the 10fps burst at full quality gave good results even with the bikes coming towards or going away from the camera. With a constant radius, eg in the inside of a bend, the results would've been excellent. Pop up flash is weak and only useful as a fill-in or with subjects no further than 6ft away.
The overall image quality is excellent with good natural colours and saturation SOOC. Handles grain well even at higher ISOs but a bit of purple fringing is apparent with high contrast edges. For a camera at this level and price bracket it's a great travel and everyday camera.
Not used the full hd video much but from the short clips I've done it's excellent with hardly any zoom noise.
Overall I'd strongly recommend this camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why buy an original?, 25 Jun. 2012
This is a great alternative to the original. Takes the same time to charge up and lasts just as long in the camera. Well worth buying as an emergency back up battery.

According to my sister-in-law, who asked me to order this for her, it's a great book. Not my cup of tea though!

Excellent quality. The first one went straight on with no bubbles. 2 months down the line and it's still looking good.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my 6 yr old god daughter. She loves it and has almost used up all the templates. A great idea for a young girl who loves being creative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic camera, 6 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has got to be the best camera in this price range. The image quality is excellent with the HS system producing better results at higher ISOs than previous models.
It is packed with fun and serious features and the full HD movies are very high quality.
If you're looking for a compact for everyday and holiday use then look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the original., 28 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was going to order the Canon battery but read the reviews on this one and thought it was worth the risk as it is a lot cheaper. I have only had to recharge it once as it lasts as long as Canon's original battery. I have no idea why Canon charge so much when one can be sold a lot cheaper and with the same performance.

My 3 year old nephew loves it. He fell asleep half way through the tenth time of watching it but it's that good I carried on to the end.

According to my wife this is a very good read. Personally I can't stand the woman. Katie Price that is, not my Mrs!
