Good quality image and sound. Menu system by someone who wants to force you into looking at every possible menu instead of just getting on with it and play the disc from start to finish. The episodes? Good old escapism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems Good, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haver owned it for maybe two hours. I plugged it into my Canon 5D3 and went outside. Its quite windy and an electrical storm is rumbling in the distance. No rain yet. I pointed the camera at a nearby tall tree that was being bent over in strong wind blasts...really strong.

The subsequent recording was of a tree getting a bit of a battering. You could plainly hear the roar of the wind in the tree as well as a blackbird getting very agitated. It did not allow wind noise on the Mic to be recorded. I am very pleased with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Kitten, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think its quite cruel to kill kittens like this in order to make these windshields :)

It works. The construction seems to be good but only time will tell. I think it will do well if treated well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, 4 Jun 2014

Reading other reviews I thought that this unit was going to be very loud. In fact its only Loud rather than Very Loud. Other than that its pretty good and quite useable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colour does not match, 4 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps I am being a bit picky, I don't know. I would have liked to see it match the scheme of the unit it was designed for. There is not a great difference but enough so as to mark it as not by Canon. Yes I know it has some text on it that says its by someone else. But I am of the view that if you are going to manufacture something like this you should at least make the effort to match colours.

Having said more than I meant to, it is only a few shades off true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Suitable for Canon 5D3, 4 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately there was an issue with the item This has been very quickly sorted out by the supplier who in turn will be dealing with the manufacturer to put it right. This relates to my Canon 5D3 and probably does not apply to any other model. Basically the size of the opening you look through was slightly smaller than it should be causing you to have to move your head slightly in order to see the whole picture. If not for this one problem it would have been perfect.

Without being asked the supplier refunded the costs. Cant ask for more than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Filters OK "Case" Rubbish, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The filters are what they are, Filters. How long they will last in their new condition is a matter of time. But the "2pc 12-slot Cases for Cokin....." are a waste of time. When properly folded up they provide excellent protection, somewhat bulky but excellent all the same. When unfolded though please keep a close eye on the ground. Every single time I either replaced or removed a filter i managed to drop two or three of the others on the ground. This because they all to easily slide out. Admittedly once the plastic that each one is shipped in is disposed of they don't slide out quite as easily.

That takes me back to how long the filters will last. They do not slide out as easily because of friction. Friction in this case means the delicate part of the filter is rubbing on the plastic wallet. In time that will spoil them especially as fine particles of dust adhere to either wallet or filter and is used as a grinding agent when the filter is inserted or removed from the wallet. If the filters had been shipped in a proper Cokin type case only the edges of each filter would have been subjected to rubbing and I feel sure that the cost of a basic injection moulded case would have been a fair bit less than the supplied wallets.

I have bought these before. Unless this particular one turns out to be defective in a year or so it deserves 5 stars

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit wobbly, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its OK and it does the job. The lead for the car is rather short. the same length of lead would have been grate but they made it shorted by making it into a coil reducing its effective length by at least a factor of 3. which is why I give it 4 not 5 stars
