1.0 out of 5 stars crap!, 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very small sheets of paper which are of no use for wrapping anything large, I thought I was getting a bargain but actually just wasted time and money!


Battery Grip BG-E2N for Canon EOS 20D 30D 40D 50D
Battery Grip BG-E2N for Canon EOS 20D 30D 40D 50D

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well - what a bargain !, 17 Jan 2013
I bought this and have been well impressed with it's reliability and functionality. Nice grippy feel and almost matches the camera perfectly. It looks the part and feels solid. The grip's buttons all function well.

The only gripes are:

Battery retaining clip a little loose, but it is held firm once main door closes and the lack of an auto focus control button on the portrait grip - it can be awkward to do this when in portrait mode, but its not a huge discomfort.

Other than that you get, for less than £20 and free postage, a reasonably well made alternative to an otherwise expensive accessory. So far so good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 2 Nov 2012
This review is from: Uncommon Deities (Audio CD)
Yet another beautifully produced book, this follows on nicely from Trophies and resembles those volumes in the colour scheme and quality. The printed word complements the CD audio perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A moving tribute to the fallen, 1 Oct 2007
This book is special for a number of reasons. It recounts the personal stories of the men who fought at Passchendaele and contains contributions from many relatives (me included - pg 85) whose families paid the ultimate price for the victory won in 1917. The photographs and layout are superb as is the coverage of the development of Tyne Cot cemetery.
This book is a well presented and moving tribute to those brave young men who didn't live to see the dawn of freedom in Europe in 1918.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put this one down!, 7 Mar 2005
Ian has written a very readable and engaging set of stories about the US bomber crews.
This is the first book on the subject I have read which relates directly to the human side of the missions. Often books get bogged down in technical details - Ian connects the reader with the individual characters from each chapter very effectively.
The range of stories is varied and each one opens up new areas of the war which are often ignored - esecially so in the story of the airmen in the concentration camp.
I bought this before Christmas and read it cover to cover in one go - for me the best indicator of a quality read!
Higly recommended!
