Erik's work is fabulous, and has got even better since this book was published.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good work, 7 Mar. 2016

Logical structure, and a good flow. A bit top heavy on the big name manufacturers (like Canon and Nikon, etc),but aren't they all?

2.0 out of 5 stars Spend your money on something else, 7 Mar. 2016
Scant details on cameras listed. Lots of common makes and models missing. Very out of date in 2016.

Japanese 35mm SLR Cameras
Japanese 35mm SLR Cameras
by Bill Hansen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.95

1.0 out of 5 stars Way too much missing, and what's included is over simplified., 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Information for each camera is presented in a standard table, which fails to accommodate variations. For example, it details shutter speed ranges for each camera, but makes no mention as to whether these were stepped or infinitely variable (no there isn't a table row for that bit of data). Tables have lots of empty boxes. Camera models are missing, and some of the information is just plain wrong, so much so that I doubt much of what it does say. Heck, camera makers are missing: where did Topcon, Kowa and Cosina go? There is nothing on variations; where a model was produced in different versions. It's all a bit unfinished.
It is most definitely not a comprehensive data guide, and should have been called "Some Japanese 35mm SLR Cameras - A few bits of information (some of which might be wrong)".

35mm Cameras (Crowood Collectors')
by Brian Long
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Buying, 14 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice book prefaced by a very health statement to the effect that collecting cameras is a hobby, and should therefore not be an occupation that consumes vast sums of money. I enjoyed the book but my only criticism is that it meanders a bit, without any apparent logic defining what's in and what's out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Zombie Action, 14 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Super tense action - has just a few not so great moments every now and then - but it's mostly non-stop action. I bought this set for a friend who had never seen the series on TV, and she totally loved; said it was the best present she'd ever had. Now that's a good recommendation!

Beautiful in every respect. Stunning sets. Incredible costumes. Amazing stunts. Fabulously lit and shot.


My Grammar and I (Or Should That Be 'Me'?): Old-School Ways to Sharpen Your English
My Grammar and I (Or Should That Be 'Me'?): Old-School Ways to Sharpen Your English
by Caroline Taggart
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a thought provoking book. It poses challenges to identify the correct form of natural speech. I found myself getting the answers right, but I had no idea why one was technically correct and the other wrong. It was therefore illuminating to go on and learn why, those of us who talk properly, say the things we say. It's the kind of book you need to study rather than read from cover to cover.
