100 of the Best Songs Ever!: For Keyboard
100 of the Best Songs Ever!: For Keyboard
by Daniel Scott
Edition: Sheet music
Price: £15.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and good value for money., 23 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this song book to replace one that I had lost. It has good, clear typescript easy to read with a good selection of songs. I found many of my old favourites plus a few 'new to me' songs that appealed to me

The chord symbols are adequate. for the home keyboard player.

I found some the piano left hand accompaniments a bit twee - that is somewhat bare or minimal. However, these could sound good in the hands of an expressive piano player, or when accompanying a singer.

I found no problems with the page turning, I just pressed the opened pages down flat before placing the book on the music stand. Spreading some of the songs over several pages is preferable to cramping small printed songs onto one page.

My rating would be 4.5 stars, 5 stars if the piano accompaniments were a bit fuller in some instances.

Recommended.

Comfortable and good sound other than a bit too 'Bassy' for my liking. Probably great for smaller sound systems though.

Mounted permanently on my 14-42 mm Series II lens. Can be fitted reversed onto the lens for storage / not in use. This is a first class accessory at a fraction of the cost of the Olympus version.

I am well pleased with this lens hood which is most effective at the wide angle end of the lens.

When using the mini flashgun - which comes with the E-LP5 - some shading occurs at the 14mm lens setting. This disappears when the lens is set to 22mm or greater. Just remove the hood temporarily if this is a problem - probably not needed if using flash indoors.

This caused by the low height of the mini flashgun and is not a fault of the lens hood.

Other flashguns, such as the 'Metz 24-1 Oly', have a higher flash head and can see over the lens hood and therefor do not give this problem at any setting of the lens' zoom setting.

Note that this lens hood will not fit onto the original 14-42mm Series I lens, which requires a screw or push fit lens hood.

Does what says - ideal if you only need to replace one strap at low cost. Or buy two if you need to / want to replace both..

This is superb little camera with fast focusing and shutter operation. I bought this to replace / supplement my Pen E-P1 for its extra features and much faster response.

I am well pleased with the camera and the excellent images it produces.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This block is ideal for connecting the computer and its peripherals e.g. printer, monitor, USB mains plugs. It enables each item to be switched individually or for all to be disconnected by the wall socket switch. It has enough sockets to provide for most computer setups, with a degree of protection against surges and noise on the mains supply.

For me, it fills a need.
