PANASONIC DMW-BLC12E Lithium-Ion Battery for Lumix GH2

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and trusted, 21 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is the same as the original battery supplied with my camera and therefore works perfectly. I've tried non OEM batteries previously and have experienced problems, losing charge, not being recognised by the camera, inaccurate current ratings. In my opinion it's worth paying the extra for peace of mind. Shop around and you'll find them at reasonable prices. I've seen these advertised at over twice the price I paid through Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect. Works without fault, 2 Mar 2012
This little device works perfectly. In fact I'm using it right now to write this whilst at work in my car.
It fits perfectly in my Archos G9 80. Just remember to switch it on in the menu section.
The device is not locked to any network, but did come with a Vodafone sim card, which I never used.
I'm using it with a Three Network sim card, but it works just as well with my Orange sim card.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not leather., 21 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I purcheased this item it was advertised as a premium leather case and the descriptive stated it was leather. However when the item arrived it was quite clear that it is NOT leather.
After writing a seller review the title has been ammended, however the descrptive had not at the time of writing this review.
Now that I've said all that, the case is actually quite nice, albiet PVC with a faux suede lining.
The Archos 80 fits perfectly and all the cut outs for buttons and plugs are in the right place and it seems fairly well made.
The flap when closed is held in place by magnets and it provides good protection for the tablet.
But... it most definately is NOT leather.
Dissapointed and let down.
As a PVC case it's fine and will give some protection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quality compact light weight radio, 21 Feb 2012
I bought this little radio for general listening whilst walking and working. It's perfect for popping in a pocket due to it's slim size and light weight. The display is large and clear and the unit is very simple to use. It has a minimalistic appearance yet is very functional. The sound quality is very good considering how slim the unit is.
There are a few minor negatives... there are no memories, so you'll have to remember the frequencies of your favorite stations, there's no RDS, the lock button only locks the power switch and the antenna isn't very robust.
The radios has a really nice feel to it and the buttons have a positive action. The alarm function is very handy.
The receiver works well, picking up all my normal stations without any problems, even in the car.
It's a little pricey, but far better quality than many cheaper options.
Recommended... yes, ( but not if you need a memory function).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice gadget, 17 July 2011
This is a well made and good looking little gadget. It's bright enough for most of the tasks that you'd use a small torch for. The zoom focus feature is useful and actually makes a difference. It comes with a lanyard, pocket clip, nylon belt pouch and carabiner, all in an attractive presentation box. Found it on Amazon cheaper than anywhere else.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's cheap., 17 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's cheap. Both in price and construction.
This is NOT a precision bit of kit, it dosen't even open straight, but it does give you a 'rough' metric only measurement.
"Ya get what ya pay fa", with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy Canon Compact, 10 Jun 2011
I've owned this camera for about 6 months now and just love it. It's like having the versatility of a digital SLR without all the bulk and weight. The picture quality is fantastic and although the 10mp sensor is less than many other cameras this is not shown in the results. No it's not as good as a SLR, but due to it's smaller size you're likely to have it with you more often. I had the G7 years ago and many other cameras in between but this is of a quality that other cameras struggle to find.
One grumble... 5x zoom, oh come on Canon!
That said, the image quality is good enough that a crop for printing isn't a problem.

To sum up... An excellent quality camera that's compact enough to take anywhere and versatile enough for the most demanding photographic situations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact Practicality, 10 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant, compact little kit which considering its size is suprisingly powerful. I've used mine for a multitude of DIY projects from laying wood floors to constructing garden sheds.
The drill could do with having a hammer action and the circulaar saw a larger blade, but other than that it''s been great.
The batteries charge in around 40mins so you're never without power and last for quite some time.
Perfect for the enthusiastic DIYer, but I don't think they're tough enough for the professional trades person.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool cutlery, 10 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A Perfect picnic partner. Sturdy, light weight and versatile.
This is a really well designed product and good quality. Not as comfortable to use as a seperate knife,fork & spoon, but you can't have it all.
I've considered an up grade to the titanium version, but at five times the cost of a plastic one for little more benefit I might just stick with the plastic.
Go on, buy one, you know you want to!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy duty dry storage, 10 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coleman Dry Bag (Sports)
I bought these (2x30ltr & 1x22ltr) for use on my boat a few years ago and they're still going strong. The material is tough enough to withstand almost everything and they still look in good condition. The closeure system is just about adequate, however the heavy duty material takes alot of folding to close them properly.

To sum up... good quality at a reasonable price.
