4.0 out of 5 stars not bad at all, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am using this on a Canon C100 - bigger than a DSLR. This works well and has full coverage and yet still allows operation through the side holes and viewing of the LCD screen through the window. Much more flexible than a fitted cover.

Charges an iPhone 4S. Syncs and iPhone 4S. That's all I needed it to do. Can't fault it at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Workmanlike, suspenseful, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting to be underwhelmed. I wasn't - it was a suspenseful film that trundled along with pace and drama. I thought it was realistic and believable. Directed with workmanlike skill and a style of realism/ unobtrusiveness that was suited to a "true story".

5.0 out of 5 stars bright, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is very bright and considering the low price I'd say this is a bargain. The focus is not that useful in practice. Check the battery requirements. It comes without a battery. It does NOT take AA's. So you'll need to buy a charger and batteries.

2.0 out of 5 stars not that illuminating, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting some insight - but in reality the simple message seems to be statistics can be presented in different ways depending on your brief. I didn't find anything particularly new, just the same message said in different ways.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, 17 Jun 2014

Just about fits over the sponge wind shield of a standard rifle mike for the Sony Z1, Z7, EX1 etc. Perhaps a little short but not a problem, especially at this price,

4.0 out of 5 stars flexible and stiff, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
good design, small enough not to impede and flexible enough to get any ancillary kit into the right position without outswinging too far to unbalance your rig. Great value.

4.0 out of 5 stars tacky and cheap, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a tacky, retro and cheap watch. Ideal. The clasp is poorly made but works..just. Son loves it. and the bonus of buying something cheap and tacky is that if you lose it, who cares?

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice price but dim - and won't last a year, 17 Jun 2014
This seemed to get a good charge even in a fairly shaded area. Worked as expected, although the LEDs were not super bright - inadequate if mounted high - so I mounted it at 3 foot level to illuminate a path - albeit a small area. But after 10 months it stopped completely -not sure if it is water ingress. Binned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried granulated bait and traps (Big Cheese Traps). The traps were not too successful and over three weeks the two traps caught two mice and that's it. The mice are curious the rats are move savvy so traps have limited appeal. one trap was triggered, bait gone, no rat. These blocks are better. You need patience. Put out blocks in a range of locations. Rats take time before nibbling at them. After a few days they get used to them being there and eat them outright. Our moderate garden rat population has dropped to very low indeed over 8-10 days. Keep replenishing the blocks in the same places and they come back for more until all are dead.

Only downside is you don't know where they died.

Update: after 6 weeks our rat population is low..maybe we see one every 3 days. You do need to replace these blocks when they are eaten or disappear. I kept the blocks in the yellow bag in the shed. Yesterday I found the empty bag on the shed floor with a gnawed hole in it. Seems they will eat 10 blocks in one go!
