Wasn't expecting much from something so small but we have a quarter of a cup of water in a month from our under-stairs cupboard. Will get scented ones next time. Great value.

Hard wearing, heavy duty - easy to remove - good zip and looks very smart. Quality. Doesn't blow away even in the strongest of winds.

Ideal for stairs and cars. and the pull-out hose gets into all those nooks and crannies. Beats any re-chargeable hand held.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liquid Image Ego 727 Action Camera - GoPro for half the price with one reservation., 20 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whether you will like or not this camera will depend if you have chosen the right one for your particular application. I replaced my Hedcamz bullet helmet camera with this hoping it would be almost as discrete a camera as the Hedcamz was but with more functionality. I didn't want a brick of a camera for green-laneing like the GoPro Hero as it would catch on every low branch and twig I rode under.

At just over £100, the footage is excellent - in low light situations it is very clear. The 1080pHD setting is a little jerky but the 720P at 60 fps is as good as you would need and is so smooth it looks like professional camera work. And its a wi-fi camera so all files are transferable through a smart phone or iPad to the net.

The beauty of this little camera is that for my use it is very robust and the buttons a little stiff but positive (unlike the Hedcamz)and comes with a very good adjustable mount that fits (with a little filing) GoPro helmet mounting plates. Also it is small enough to stick a strip of self adhesive velco tape on the back or side and stick it to any receptive surface on your goggles or jacket.

Another nice feature is through the Action Connect app you can alter the field of view from 90˚ to 135K˚ or rotate the camera view through 180˚. You can also time-lapse still photograph with a variety of time gaps.

Only drawback after 4 months of use is that the battery is not interchangeable like the GoPro so you are restricted to around 110-115 minutes regardless of what SD micro card you have in. Then it will need a 2-3 hour charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Drawing Blood - a revalation, 17 April 2012

This review is from: Like Drawing Blood (Audio CD)
I haven't been inspired by an album since hearing 1999 by Prince and the Revolution! It is so refreshing to hear something so laden with musical colours, it glows. Walter's voice has been compared to Sting, Steve Winwood or Peter Gabriel and I hear so many other influences in his music from Talking Heads, Stevie Wonder, early Motown and Bjork to Augustus Pablo and Lee Perry. Yet he still remains completely unique. There is not a single track on this album a am indifferent over, every one is fantastic. I on purposely bought Drawing Blood before Making Mirrors because I wanted to completely absorb this earlier work before getting involved in an album I knew I would love. I can't choose between them now but I would say Drawing Blood is a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thomas Dolby - The Falt Earth (Collectors edition), 22 Mar 2010

Undoubtedly Dolby's finest work. The original album was wonderfully interleaved songs from the atmospheric 'Mulu' and 'Screen Kiss' to Dolby's funk inspired 'Hyperactive' now with extra live and unpublished tracks on this collectors version. If it ever could be it is now better than the original.
