5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product!, 6 Feb 2012
This is a 6 stop nd filter and very well made in terms of construction and quality. No color cast, fringing or whatsover...I had stacked this with another Hoya 3 stop nd filter to create the 9 stop. It worked perfectly and the images were absoloutely clean. Highly recommended!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Do not step up, 6 Feb 2012
While the rings are adequately built with fair quality, its usually not adviseable to step up. 77mm filter on an 82 mm (usually they're wide angle lenses) wil cause vignetting at completely wide. Will not advise this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, bit not so..., 6 Feb 2012
The extender is useful for people who wear glasses / are shortsighted. For normal sighted people, you need to take the plastic lenses out. Its simple: just take the two screws out of the back and pop them out. Overall its a waste of money, if its just to keep your face/nose away from the lcd. Not sure if there is any alternative either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 6 Feb 2012
The flash refelctor cards come in different colours and provide wide surface for reflection. Its well built and for occassions it would serve its purpose very well. It may overwhelm smaller flashes and cameras due to its size. Perfect for wedding, action photography. Better than most other products available for similar use. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money!, 6 Feb 2012
The collar is adequately built and fits quite snug on to the lens. Which is good, as it needs to be absoloutely in place while you mount a heavy lens like 28-300 atached to it. There is feedback in various reviews that the collar has sharp edges and scratches the lens. Yes it can if you're careless while fitting the same or move it too much while its fitted. But once in place its just perfect. If you're too concerned, then buy a Canon collar for 4 times the price! However, if you're careless while fitting it on, there's no guarantee Canon original collar won't scratch. All in all value for money and good with careful use!


Lexar Professional Express Card Compact Flash Reader
Lexar Professional Express Card Compact Flash Reader

4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money!, 26 Nov 2011
This product is not as flimsy as some of the reviews here make it out to be. Its as strong as it could be, keeping in mind the possible thickness, due to the slot it fits in. I have one gripe that the card insert could have been smaller as it sticks out of the laptop body a bit too much, and one needs to store it separately when traveling. Store it properly and make sure there's no pressure on the body. The speeed of transfer is decent and on first impression it took about 4 minutes to transfer a little over 8 gig of photos from my CF card. For the price you pay,its a no brainer. Haven't tried any other brands like Delkin or Sandisk (hardly availabe on Amazon)so cannot comment on how it compares. Good value for money!


Hama Traveller Compact Pro Tripod

5.0 out of 5 stars The best tripod for travel!, 22 Nov 2011
The tripod is perfectly sized and light enough (less than 1.4 Kgs) for carrying it around. Its sturdy and has a fantastic hieght when completely unfolded. This may not match a carbon fiber or some of the heavier tripods, but its a fantastic product for one sole purpose. Traveling. And there's none that can compare to it at this price point! If you need to travel / trek and carry a tripod because you love doing landscapes...this is the one! You could load this with 5D and a beast like 70-200, it'll work. The head being a ballhead stays put and doen's have any creep, provided you tighten the screw well. Or make sure you keep the front load perpendicular to the head movement slot. For heavier loads, use it on three sections instead of four, you have a very sturdy setup and almost 5 ft height. Which is adequte for most people to work on rather than carrying the best tripod in the world and regretting the load every minute. Fantastic product is my verdict!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adeqaute!, 22 Nov 2011
The 3 stop filter is good for lower ligh / golden hour shooting. Its useful/flexible to have a 3 stop and a 6 stop, rather than one 9/10 stopper. Stacking two filters is an issue only with lab busters. purist and people who make wall paper out of their photographs. For the rest, there's nothing visible to fret about. Adequate for real life use! Unless and until you're a pro, forget about the big stopper and enjoy creating daylight pictures with these two having larger apertures bokeh,blurring water, sky etc. Enjoy the process and don't bother too much about these lab tests and reviews, they don't occur in real life...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value!, 22 Nov 2011
The product performs quite well and I do not personally see any issue with the batteries, even if they are older model. I'm not a flash afficianado, but works well for the time I spend using flash. The charging is good and first charge took a few hours. The power is adequate and cannot say this is perfect for a pro, but for a user like me who could use a flash for a few hours it appears adequate
