Milliput Standard Yellow-Grey 113.4g Pack
Milliput Standard Yellow-Grey 113.4g Pack
Offered by HobbyGameCenter
Price: 2.25

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Milliput, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a excellent item for model making and general repairs. It can be molded into shape and smoothed with a little water. Once dried, you can saw it or sand it. Used in sensible applications, Milliput will not fail.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent general purpose glue, especially when flexible items have to be joined. Much better value buying a tin rather than a tube.

Price: 4.15

5.0 out of 5 stars Mighty Araldite, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb glue. I've always found Araldite man enough for most tasks where rigid items have to be glued together. Provided both surfaces are clean and have been keyed, Araldite will stick. I wouldn't use on it flexible items such as materials or leather etc, something like Evo-stick is perhaps more suited to this type of task.

Price: 6.85

3.0 out of 5 stars OK Rest, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The rests are a little springy for my liking. I think the internal wire should be thicker to give them more strength.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Low Cost Phone, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This phone has lots of great features for a relatively low cost. I much prefer the Windows OS to Android. I don't need lots of apps and I rarely use the phone for photography, as I have high end DSLRs for that job. All in all, an excellent buy that does everything I need. I would have given it 5 stars if the battery life had been a little better.

Very good item at a good price. Just make sure there is absolutely no dust present when you apply the protector to your screen.

Kenro Carlton Slip-In Album 200 7x5" - Black
Offered by Hawks Photo Video
Price: 13.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Album, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice quality album, photographs slip in a treat. I've seen reviews elsewhere on Amazon, that state the slip-in memo tabs are oversize, this is incorrect. The tabs are a tight fit and have to be eased in, but they are not oversize. All in all very pleased with this item.

1.0 out of 5 stars Massive Design Flaw, 12 Feb 2014
Great camera and lenses, (see other reviews) BUT there is a massive design flaw. When in HDR or Auto bracketing modes you cannot use the self timer or an electronic shutter release, EXACTLY THE TIME YOU NEED THEM TO AVOID VIBRATION!!! It's only when you start to use the camera that you discover this glaring design flaw, then it's too late! With my Canon SLR kit, I can set the camera on the tripod and release the shutter via the self timer thereby negating any vibration. I've been in touch with Sony and they have no plans to provide a firmware update, Shocking! The designer of this camera was obviously not a photographer. If you decide to purchase this product be aware of the problem. If you are going to purchase any other Sony cameras, check carefully to see if they also have this flaw. I'll be selling mine and buying from a company who know how to make cameras for photographers.

Hoya 67mm UV(C) Digital HMC Screw-in Filter
Hoya 67mm UV(C) Digital HMC Screw-in Filter
Price: 14.55

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoya Quality, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice quality, low profile filter. I've purchased lots over the years, purely for lens protection. Some photographers will tell you not to use a filter as it degrades the image. I've found this to be true on the odd occasion, (like the sun at an acute angle). A lens hood soon cures this. Protects against the accidental, but inevitable touch with a finger, or from sea spray etc. Scratch it and it's relatively cheap to replace, unlike the front element of the lens. If you want to resell the lens at any time, the filter has helped keep the front element in pristine condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good product, never had a coaster with any of the Verbatim Blu-Ray discs I've purchased. So why not 5 stars? Whilst the adage, "Buy cheap, buy twice" is true, Blu-Ray discs are still very expensive and it's about time their cost started to drop. Having said that, I wouldn't purchase another brand.
