4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless imagination, 16 Aug. 2015
This review is from: The Black Cloud (Paperback)
A very long time since I last read this. Still very fresh and inspiring, although the dialogue's are occasionally forced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it before? read it again!, 16 Aug. 2015
I have not read this since I was a teenager some 45 years ago! The depth of the message escaped me then and I can only delight in the imagination and foresight of Mr Aldiss. Brilliant and a good read after a long interval.

bought the same for my Powershot SX260 HS and very satisfied. Good value for money and does what it says.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary value for money, 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my wife after ordering the SX260HS for myself. The viewfinder is a big plus in this very easy to use camera. Picture and video quality is outstanding at this price. The practicality of the 2 x AA battery power source is enhanced by the inheritance of 4 Canon rechargeable AAs and the charger from my now dying Canon A80. The A80 was brilliant until the 4MP sensor started to die. The A1300 is a good successor, missing only the orientable screen now reserved for the likes of G12. At under £80 this was phenomenally good value for money and a great little camera to have in one's pocket or purse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well with Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far so good. Writes and reads quickly enough not to notice, which is what this kind of accessory is all about. I am not an expert in memory management, but a very satisfactory product.

Bought with the Canon Powershot SX260 HS, this spare battery has already shown its value. Works well and charges quickly

5.0 out of 5 stars Well built camera, does exactly what it says, with excellent picture quality from wide angle to telephoto., 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this camera over the Panasonic Lumix TZ30. So far I have been pleased with performance at all light levels and from wide to telephoto. Most surprised by high quality of image at 20X zoom. The camera is well built with good quality finish. The pop-up flash was a nuisance at first, but I am getting used to it. On board software is very effective at eliminating red-eye. Perhaps colours are unnaturally vivid in some situations. A RAW mode would have been good. Intuitive menus and generally good lay-out (excepting pop-up flash) make this easy to use out of the box and for more demanding use a few days play suffice to make best use. Old fashioned manual mode f8 and 1/125 second worked best for photographing craters on the moon at 20X zoom. Surprisingly little camera shake! Maybe the Lumix might have been better, but Amazon's astounding instant purchase option made this by far the better deal in terms of value for money.
