5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly with the D3100, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not sure what the other reviewer was doing but this device works perfectly with the D3100. Very easy to understand instructions for setting up and and an uncomplicated method which once done a couple of times is easy to remember. Works perfectly as a bulb trigger, even with no batteries inserted. Great value for money and a really useful bit of kit for the amateur photographer. Can't recommend enough.

Excellent book detailing a PBI's life on the western front. Gives a real insight into life in the trenches and the hardships these men had to endure. A great book for those feeling their way into first world war history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was there any sort of research done?, 17 Jan. 2011
Oh dear. I thought this would be a good read but found my toes curling on a far too frequent basis. I'm not sure what research the author conducted on the British policing / judicial / military front but by the looks of it, it wasn't enough. One character joined the "British police force" (where of course, there is no such thing) and was then promoted to the "Customs unit", which is a) not actually part of any police service in the UK and b) is actually HM Revenue & Customs, part of the civil service. It was also stated that terror suspects in the UK are denied the same right of the presumption of innocence that any other suspect gets when taken into custody. In short, very little of what was written was anything close to the truth, he couldn't even arm the police with the correct weapons and as for police use of "dum dum" rounds........well just so far out it's untrue.
I could maybe of overlooked these errors if the characters were developed but all we seemed to get was a physical description and no more.
My last gripe is that I was always told that a story needed a beginning, middle and end. This had evidence of the first two, however, I had an over-riding sensation that the authors mum had called him down for his dinner as he was getting to the most crucial stage of the story which was then wrapped up poorly in a few pages.
I read around two books a week; the rest of the 'Soft Target' series won't be appearing on my Kindle
