PhotoSEL BG411 Sling Bag with Rain Cover for DSLR Cameras and Accessories - Black
PhotoSEL BG411 Sling Bag with Rain Cover for DSLR Cameras and Accessories - Black
Price: £16.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A great wee bag, and I don't mean the wife..., 13 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is my third sling bag, and my second from the vine. (My wife has claimed the other vine one for her camera and tablet!), and this a nice size for a DSLR with lens attached, a couple of small lenses, and some small accessories. It has handy attachment points for a small tripod, but they are too small for my ancient heavyweight one, and my modern even hevierweight one! It does make for a very good "day bag", whereas my original Lowepro one is a weekend/holiday bag.

The construction of the bag is good, with no loose threads, and decent quality materials, which, while not Lowepro standard, are very good for the price of this bag. It is also very comfortable to carry, and use across the chest, with nice, easy access.

What is MOST important about the bag, for me, is that it doesn't have room for a tablet...

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy (I'll get me coat...), 12 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this is designed for use on DSLRs, my wife uses this on her Nikon bridge camera, to give her a bit of security when holding it in her freakishly small hands. It does the job very well too. I even worked out a way to use it with the neckstrap of the camera, which gives her a bit of belt & braces security. I have no complaints about quality either, even at such a low price.

Oh, and the free keyring is just dandy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden History., 27 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Field Punishment No.1 [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I usually prefer my history to be provided in documentary form, but this is a story that is not much told. It is a fascinating, harrowing, and saddening tale, of the cruelty inflicted on conscientious objectors. We are told that they were mostly engaged as stretcher bearers and such, but the truth is, men such as Archibald Baxter, the protagonist here, were punished and abused by an archaic system of military "justice". Despite having watched this, or perhaps especially because I have watched this, I fail to see the logic in using such a punishment to break the spirit and belief of these men. A broken spirited man isn't one I'd want to have my back in battle.

The film itself is well acted, scripted and directed, and, though there may, or may not have been fictionalised elements, it is a believable portrayal of the experiences of Conscientious Objectors.

I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in the history of the Great War. Most fascinating


Oral-B Precision Clean Three Replacement Toothbrush Heads

5.0 out of 5 stars Great replacements., 10 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm really happy with my Oral B 600, so, these replacement heads are a welcome suggestion from the Vine. They are nice and easy to replace, and very effective in use. There's not much more I can say about them, really.
Oh, and Kudos to Amazon, requested Friday, arrived Sunday!

5.0 out of 5 stars A versatile brush, and it entertains toddlers too!, 20 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An excellent toothbrush, as is the case with most Oral-B electrics. I use a Pro 600, and passed this to my stepdaughter to use. She has gum problems due to a congenital condition, and her new dentist suggested she try an electric toothbrush. This is a lot more versatile than my own brush, with more control over speed, as she does not like this too high. My grandson is feeling left out, as everyone else has an electric toothbrush, and was offered this by his mum. He declined, due to it being pink, but his little sister is quite happy, although she just wants to tickle the palms of her hand with it! I will just have to watch the Vine for an appropriately colour one for the boy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Complète, facile à utiliser, très bon!, 9 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am the pupil who sat at the back of French class at school, doing homework for other classes, because my teacher said I was so bad at the subject, I'd be wasting her, and my, time. After a career in kitchens, with a different kind of French, and a few holidays in France, where I remembered things I "learned" at school, and the prospect of another trip to Paris later this year, I decided to take the plunge with this package. It's a very comprehensive bundle, with three books, and the software, and is nice and easy to install. I would be a lot further forward if my laptop hadn't died the day before it . Still, I am getting there with it, slowly but surely, with an hours "lesson" a day. It is easy to work with, and follow, and more of what I should have learned back in 1972 is coming back to me. My French accent is still terrible, but not Clouseau terrible, but given time, & practice, I might be able to post my Vine reviews in French without resorting to Google Translate! (Watch this space. Or one very like it.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A cover up that is good for once., 30 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The missus asked me to order this for her, in the hope that it would be suitable for her skin tone. Why the hope? Well, the Vine listing didn't specify the shade that would be supplied. (Something you might want to think about, Vine people)
Fortunately, it is her skin shade, and having worn it a couple of time this week, she is quite happy with the results. She has a touch of Rosacea on her cheeks, and needs a foundation that will cover it, but in a subtle way, and this has worked on both counts. I didn't even realise she was wearing any, at first sight, until I noticed her lack of rosy cheeks! Having had a couple of long days out, it does seem to live up to the billing of lasting 24 hours, as it looked as good, and effective at the end of the day as it had when it started. This might well be her brand of choice from now on, so it's a thumbs up from the missus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive, 24 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife is plagued with teeth and gum problems, due to health issues. She had another brand of electric toothbrush, but it was quite a basic one. When I saw this capabilities of this, it was a must have.
The first thing you notice, or rather, don't notice, is how quiet the brush is. Then you realise how fast it works. My wife likes a small brush head, and this comes with just that, and this, combined with the fast moving head, she is already feeling the difference in how clean her teeth are, and, very importantly, how good it is on her gums. (Her previous brush seems very harsh on her gums in comparison.) It has only been a week since she started using it, but already, it is proving a better bet than her previous brush. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!


McAfee Total Protection 2015 - 1 PC (PC) [Frustration-Free Packaging]
McAfee Total Protection 2015 - 1 PC (PC) [Frustration-Free Packaging]

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent protection, and so easy to use, 9 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I just installed the 3 PC edition on our stuff at home, and my step daughter mentioned her AVG was due to expire, so I suggested this as a replacement.

This is what I said about the 3 PC version:
"Having spent 2014 being protected by McAfee, I was very happy with the results, so when this appeared on the Vine, it was a no brainer to order it and update. It is so simple to install, from a credit card sized download card, which is great, if you are installing on a cd driveless notebook, and adding the other devices is also very straightforward. McAfee have upped their game in the last few years, IMO, and this is another example of that. I can't see me using anything else, unless someone comes up with something COMPLETELY fullproof!"
