Very small. I would not have purchased this item had I realised its size. Might be better off in a christmas cracker

Excellent book. Easy to follow. Goes beyond just instructions on what slider to use but ensures a complete understanding - which makes it all far easier


Flash Techniques for Macro and Closeup Photography (Guide for Digital Photographer)
Flash Techniques for Macro and Closeup Photography (Guide for Digital Photographer)
by Robin Deutschmann Rod Deutschmann
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Flash Techniques for Macro & Close Up Photography, 8 Jan. 2012
This is a truly excellent book.

It is concise and simple to understand provided one has a working knowledge of exposure - but even without this it is explained well and if the exercises are followed this knowledge will be speedily attained.

I have been thinking about getting Ito close up and macro for some years and this is by far the best introductory book I have seen - because it is so simple and thus easily understood.

Clearly the authors are excellent photographic teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photo Know How -The Art of Large Format Photography, 17 July 2011
Written by Koch and Marchesi - the "Sinar Gurus".

Excellent self-teaching book relevant for all types of view camera but with a mechanical emphasis onSinar.

If you are lucy enough to find it - buy it - Sinar owner or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars MIC Store CF Card Reader for iPad 1 or 2, 17 July 2011
Superb item that works perfectly and is essential for any photographer who want to use his iPad and whose camera uses CF cards.

It fills a gap that Apple should have addressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars EOS 1D Mark II, 14 Nov. 2004
I've had this camera for about a month having upgraded from the 10D - that I have kept as a backup body.
The quality of photographs is excellent - As I don't print larger that A4 I find that JPEG M1 setting enough. The JPEG is so good that the RAW facility (that involves a lot of work in Photoshop) is really unnecessary.
The controls whilst different from the 10D are easy to use and intuitive.
I use the second card SD to save and restore custom setups.
The only gripe is that only one set up can be saved per card so it is necessary to buy several small capacity SD cards - but this is very cheap. The benefits of this are obvious where the camera is shared.
The A1 servo mode has two speeds 4 fps & 8.5-the latter beinglike a machine gun!!! Great for sport.
All in all a superb camera - well worth the money.
