1.0 out of 5 stars Not a protective case - only buy to protect from scratches, not falls., 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rubbish protection.
After 2 days of buying the case the ipad fell and the screen cracked. This case does not protect and wrap the corners properly. So it looks and feels nice, but it falls = it breaks. I had many iPads and cases and falls and nothing happened as I was using better cases. It's cheap and there's a reason why... This case will only protect the back of the ipad from minor scratches. Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars slow and clunky - limited use, 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a bit of a 'non product' for me - after trying it has a a very, very limited use in my opinion. Waste of 37.
(Amazon delivery - must be said - was rock solid as usual)

Initial set-up was fast if a little painful because the wi-fi would not accept the default password - then it finally accepted it. I eventually connected to the home wi-fi but it often drops the connection and the app disconnects. I nearly launched the camera... but I like it too much.

The transfer speeds are abominably slow... and unless you are in the middle of nowhere and desperate to get a photo from your camera to your iPhone... which it will do fine... it has no other real use. You cannot seriously use one of these to download your photos unless you have a handful or you'll wait forever and drain both your camera and phone batteries.

If you are on the move and need to view photos on a better screen than the DSLR's: get an apple iPad/SD adaptor instead.

The feature for 'live viewing' photos you have just taken is also a bit of a gimmick. I guess if you have your camera stuck on a tripod somewhere and you are shooting via a remote control, then waiting several seconds to see the photo on your phone/iPad might be easier than walking about or using the camera's screen... meh...

So... totally wrong purchase for my simple use case: get home (or be about) and easily have the photos transferred to either phone or computer wirelessly and easily. By the time you connect, transfer etc... you are better off removing the SD card, popping it into an iPad or PC... and you'll be done in a fraction of the time. Perhaps the eye-fi pro cards (given the ability to automatically upload to Flickr, Picasa, Evernote) are a better option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin. Very well., 9 Jun 2009
Having played with this camera for over 3 weeks and taken 600+ shots in a recent holiday with a number of different settings / conditions etc... I am very pleased with the purchase. My view (non professional) is that this is a really solid performer with no 'frills' (i.e. it's a camera, who cares about video...) and does what it is supposed to very well. I carried it around for days and it's light enough - the battery lasted for days - the quality of the pictures is good - the usability is good with really intuitive layout of buttons and functions. Personally - having pretty big hands - a larger body/grip would have been nicer so I might invest in the additional battery pack. If you really need more specs from a camera, then the next step up is a full frame machine if you are after processor quality, or one with a higher shooting rate if you are into sports photography. Else, I think this is a solid performer but do invest in a few decent lenses, which will make a world of difference.
