5.0 out of 5 stars Great for large data transfer, 22 Aug. 2010
Bought this as i use Canon pro bodies and needed something that could shift large amounts of data quickly. Does that very well.
The flip up design helps protect the contacts in transit which I'm sure will extend it's life span.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to its reputation!, 6 Nov. 2007
I don't write reviews often but was so impressed with this book I was compelled to do so on this occasion.
Light, Science and Magic is the primo tomb on learning and grasping the concepts of lighting in any situation. Although primarily discussing controlled lighting the theory is equally valid in varied outdoor lighting but not discussed so much so as not to cloud the learning cycle.
Whilst reading the book it took me back to my school days studying science and reminded me of the texts I used then. Now this is not a bad thing as whilst coming across as a real study text, it does not over complicate where it could and the authors are very careful not to stray from the concept at hand.
In short the book is so good that the only fault I can find is that I want to read the next chapter before trying the technique I've just studied.

4.0 out of 5 stars My only text on CS2, 29 Aug. 2006
As many have mentioned the humour does become a bit tedious after the introduction sorry "the really important bit you just have to read or your computer will die", one of Kelbys repeated lines. If you can put up with this then you will find every bit of information in this book useful. I'm sure there will be some CS2 mastercraftsmen out there who wont need Kelbys help but for the rest of us mere mortals it covers everything in easy to digest step by steps.

I only gave it 4 instead of 5 as i got bored repeatedly not laughing at not very funny one liners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great woodworking text, 29 Aug. 2006

If you can't find a style to suit then give up woodworking now!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to the period, 29 Aug. 2006
I bought this as my first text on the Georgian Period, having little knowledge of the Period when i bought a Regency House.

Covers the whole of the quite long georgian period in great detail and depth. It would certainly be an aquired taste and is not light reading. However if you have interest in this style of house and/or is relevant to your home then it provides an accurate chronology of the houses built and why they were built that way.

Lots of great pictures to inspire and impress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best operational book I ever bought, 29 Aug. 2006
Blackstones have cracked it with this one. Way better than the police officers companion. Although not as easy to read as that title, covers subjects in a lot more depth and is a great reference even on the street. Further to that it is current with the latest legislation including the recent SOCAPA.

Provides full definitions of most offences operational police officers are likely to encounter including the likes of Sexual Offences, Drugs Offences, the Human Rights Act and even guidance on missing persons and race hate incidents.

A well laid out contents page and test cases makes navigation easier than it first appears and this book continues to surprise in its depth and width of knowledge.

In short it is like having the full PNLD access at your finger tips on the street.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good start, 24 Dec. 2004
well, i didn't know that much about japanesse swordsmanship until i started this book. i haven't finished it yet, but it's very easy to pick up. covering the initial history of the sword and its manufacture and usage and how it evolved. very interesting and some good technique descriptions. i look forward to finishing it and having a go at some drawing techniques, i may even seek some instruction and go the full hog. definately a worthy buy...

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point, 14 Nov. 2001
This book reads very well from the first page to the last, covering all subject matter with intricate but not tedious detail. The content is specific as it is broad and neglects little if anything in this art. A must for anyone with the slightest interest in this type of material.
