3.0 out of 5 stars Work okay but a little too light, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice little units that work alright but they are small and lacking in weight; consequently, they don't stay put on your desk when connected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well engineered with a quality feel, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted this brand when I bought my lenses at my local dealer but they wanted £95 for this filter which was truly extortionate. So picking this item up from this Amazon supplier at a third off this price seemed to me to be a steal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but produces great photo prints, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheapest price on the web from this supplier. Would use them again. As for the inks, well we all know that they are obscenely over-priced but then that's how printer manufacturers play their marketing game.


Tile Grout Sealer from Betterware

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a silicon sealant - what more can be said, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item arrived promptly and was easy to apply to tiling. Grout drying time after taking a shower (where I applied the sealant) seems to be very fast which would indicate that the sealant is doing its job of not allowing water to penetrate deep in to the grout.

Bit pricey but then so many of these kinds of accessories are. Works well enough and is well made. Comes with a nice integral stand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than a kit lens and looks the part on your camera, 5 May 2013
I replaced my kit 18-55mm lens with this lens and haven't been disappointed. The lens has excellent sharpness and contrast and much lower flare in direct sunlight than the kit lens. It's very well made too having many metal parts as well as tight-fitting plastic mouldings. It's a little expensive but it is after all the best mid-range zoom for the DX sensor currently on the market: Nikon have nothing better in their line-up covering this focal length range and Sigma and Tamron have nothing that competes in optical quality. If you need a high quality walk-about lens that will stay on your camera most of the time, this is it. But remember that this lens is designed only for DX sensors: if you plan to 'upgrade' to FX then you won't be able to use this lens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but a 'must have' for Nikon J/V 1 and 2 Owners, 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you own any Nikon FX or DX telephoto lenses for your other camera bodies, then you must have one of these adapters for your CX format Nikon J/V one or two camera. The crop-factor of 2.7 enables you to take fabulous long tele-photo shots without any loss of aperture or optical quality as one would get by using a teleconverter. I have a 70-300 f4.5/5.6 zoom which, on the V1, becomes an f5.6 810mm lens! The VR works using this adapter and so one can take 810mm shots hand-held with a lens costing just £450: try doing that on an FX body. Fantastic bit of kit.

However, Nikon charge a horrendous sum (around £220) for what is nothing more than a lens mount adapter with a pass-through electrical connection for Nikons G series lenses. But it is very well made (all metal) and works beautifully.

One word of warning though; if you mount a VR lens on the adapter, it's energized the whole time and not just when you press the shutter release, and so, you must remember to turn VR off at the lens if you normally shoot with the camera switched on all the time, otherwise you'll have flat battery in no time.

Used this for backups of work stuff for over a year now: no issues at all. Recommended although there are faster devices on the market now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secure, fast storage., 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have around a dozen of these in use now and thus far they've been reliable and well able to handle HD video and extremely fast downloads to my PC. A high performance storage medium at a very competitive price.
