5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever happened to your dreams?, 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The above title is a throwaway rhetorical question that was mentioned towards the end of the book and one that is echoing in my head as I write this at 2am having finished the book in one long sitting.

Don't get me wrong though, the book is chock full of well structured, eye-opening, real world sensible advice rather than airy-fairy nonsense.

The key themes of this book are so easy to understand and are broken down into small chapters with approachable action plans at the end of each chapter (which I've got to do!). The checklist at the start of Chapter 3 (Putting it into Practice) was particular helpful to me in thinking about how good some of my actual ideas are.

What was particularly interesting was Rachel started up a new business venture to showcase the concepts mentioned throughout the book from idea to market and beyond. This sure beats all those other books that mention how they made their money without even giving you clues as to what they do or how they dealt with the business!

I thoroughly recommend this book to any one who wants to take positive steps to developing their own business - however big or small they want it to be and however unique or not it is.

Good luck to everyone!

I heard this on the Where the Hell is Matt? 2012 video. This is an absolutely stunning song that works so well with the video.

Alicia has an amazing voice, great work by her and Garry Schyman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works with iMac (Lion) and iPhone 4... Just a few niggles., 21 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not too shabby for the price. Charging via USB took about three hours and I've currently used it for about 12 hours without any issues.

Audio quality is just below that of the standard iPhone earphones.

My main gripe is the blue LED light which is incredibly annoying at night since it flashes every few seconds. tempted to put a bit of blu-tac over it.

Comfort wise, i woud not recommend voer long periods of time but anything up to 40 minutes should be ok without them hurting your head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile moneysaving purchase., 2 Jun 2012
In price comparison to the Nikon ML-L3 Remote Control it's a bargain.

The remote is just taller than an AA\AAA battery and considerably thinner. It features just one button that will auto focus AND shoot.

The remote arrives without any instructions. The following steps should get you going:

1. It comes with a coin battery (a CR2025) already in the remote. Remove the small plastic film from the battery's housing to get power flowing. Incidentally there is no light to indicate the remote is powered on.

2. With the remote now on, go to your camera to change the Release Mode. On my camera this is done by pressing the i button and scrolling down to Release Mode. Change the setting to Quick Response Remote or 2s Delayed Remote.

3. Give it a few seconds and that should be it!

Tips, concerns, suggestions:

1. This remote (and the Nikon remote) can't wake up the camera so there is still a good chance you will need to bring it back to life by pressing the shutter button on the camera. This would be a pain if you were constructing a scene but you improve this by changing the "Remote On Duration" within the Nikon's menu system (Timers/AE Lock) from 1 minute up to 15 minutes.

2. You can't flip the battery over when not in use as the casing won't fit back in to the remote but batteries are cheap at 3 for 12 so should only be a minor concern.

3. In relation to the above, if the camera does go on standby, it will end up changing the Release Mode to whatever it was previously - most likely Single mode where yo physically pressed the shutter release button.

4. The auto-focus modes will have different options in this particular shutter release mode - worth checking to see what impact it can have on your shots!

5. Once the camera auto-focuses it will take a shot, you can't just focus the lens only.

6. Use the camera's Live View so you can take a look at your subject without peering threw the viewfinder to check the composition, but Live View does consume a lot more power.

Conclusion:
Despite the few shortcomings - which may in fact be Nikon's responsibility - this is a very convenient and affordable piece of kit that will most certainly come in useful for those shots where having to press the shutter button isn't the most ideal.
