4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect product, does the job - but does Apple have to screw buyers of iPhone 5?, 4 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy product, does what it says on the tin - adapts the little Lightning connector on the iPhone 5 to older 30 pin accessories. Works perfectly with older chargers and cables and a FM transmitter for music.

But really Apple, does it have to be 26?? Ridiculous.

5.0 out of 5 stars An astounding camera, 12 Nov 2007
OK, I was upgrading from a Minolta 7000 purchased in 1986 so perhaps I'm setting the bar a little low. BUT this is an astounding camera.

Very solid feel yet light in weight, excellent controls and usability.

Very sharp and vivid yet natural results. Anti-shake control that lets me use a 300mm lens (equivalent to about 450mm in old money) and get a result so sharp you can zoom in to someone's face hundreds of meters away on a jetski, with me standing on a moving dock. Very quick focusing, and up to 3 shots per second.

Ability to use all my old Minolta AF lenses through sadly not the flashes.

Pretty good built-in flash. Unexpectedly long battery life, even using flash. Big clear high-resolution screen.

The cons - you really do need to read the owners manual on this one. there are LOTS of features and the icons are just not very self-explanatory.

At around 400 (body only) a great piece of kit.
