eGPS Lite
eGPS Lite
Price: £0.00

3.0 out of 5 stars I question the data it provides., 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: eGPS Lite (App)
It looks the business, but when I stand at the edge of the sea, why does it tell me (consistently, every time I try) that I'm somewhere between 50 and 60 metres above sea level? I know that's not right, so I have to view all the other data with the same very large pinch of salt. An interesting novelty, but not something you'd want to rely on too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sound Meter (App)
There's no telling whether it's accurate or not, and there's no obvious way to calibrate it, especially without a reference source of sound and comparison with a professionally-calibrated sound meter. So it's a 'useful guide' to sound levels - no more, no less.


Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a proper Canon battery, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack (Camera)
What is there to say about a Canon battery; the camera needs it, it's designed specifically for the camera and the job, and it does it like any other Canon battery. Except, buying it from this supplier was a whole lot cheaper. Fast service too. You can't do better than that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Think hard about Eye-Fi / Wi-Fi before rushing to purchase, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does 'what it says on the can' but it's not straightforward to set up, and because in use it's constantly Wi-Fi active it eats camera batteries. It's easier to set up than the Transcend Wi-Fi card, it handles RAW images (which the Transcend doesn't do) and it also has a few other 'plus' features that could be useful, but I'll probably use it only if and when the Eye-Fi direct-transfer facility becomes really necessary, otherwise it will just sit in my camera bag taking up space and being largely ignored. Meanwhile, unless you're working in a studio or for the Press, cable transfer back at base is faster, easier, and less of a hassle. Nothing wrong with it for what it is, but I've made the Wi-Fi / Eye-Fi mistake twice and I won't be doing it again.

Kingston Ultimate 32 GB 600X Compact Flash Card
Kingston Ultimate 32 GB 600X Compact Flash Card
Offered by MyMemory
Price: £23.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Flash without a flash, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's 32Gb, with a 600x file transfer rate - and not many devices will enable such a fast transfer. I've taken loads of photos and not had any problems with it so far, so it appears to be another bargain purchase. Time will tell.


Matin Neoprene Comfort Strap with Quick Release (JU0153) (571380)
Matin Neoprene Comfort Strap with Quick Release (JU0153) (571380)
Offered by KROSDEAL EU
Price: £16.93

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the supplied Canon strap, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, it's quite comfortable in use because it 'gives' a little and doesn't dig into your shoulder. It also doesn't slide off your shoulder as easily as the original webbing strap, and that's a good thing. I don't like items with pronounced branding anyway, but if you have an expensive camera, the strap doesn't have any Canon or Nikon and camera model branding, so it wouldn't draw attention to the expensive camera you're carrying. Despite it being quite comfortable in use, I'd have preferred a wider shoulder strap; I believe that there is one available but I only noticed it (too late) after purchasing when I went to the Matin website, and I couldn't then find it actually available via Amazon. Why, Matin? The quick strap detachment facility is very useful when using a tripod and the full strap would get in the way; and being able to turn it into a short hand-strap is also very useful. A good buy.


BestDealUK GGS LCD Screen Protector Glass for Canon EOS 5D Mark III 5DIII DSLR Camera
BestDealUK GGS LCD Screen Protector Glass for Canon EOS 5D Mark III 5DIII DSLR Camera

5.0 out of 5 stars A great protector, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It protects both the viewfinder and the rear screen. It's a tight fit (good in all respects: protection, compactness, security, etc) and it will be easy to remove if necessary. Remove the viewfinder's rubber frame, slide the screen protector into position, replace the rubber frame - fitting (and removing) it is as easy as that. There are no imperfections in the screen-protector material, and no noticeable opacity. It's a clear (pun intended) winner, for me. Delighted I bought it, and I'm not even conscious that it's in place when I use the camera. A very worthwhile investment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do the job whilst travelling, 2 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: M8 - Free UK live sat nav (App)
With no built-in maps it doesn't work without an internet connection as a satnav whilst travelling, so it's not much use and there's no point in having it when you can use Google maps in the static, internet-connected situation.

New product, as specified, just what I needed, at a very good price, and delivered ahead of schedule. It doesn't get any better than that.
