4.0 out of 5 stars Tracking Camera, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This camera comes in two versions - not made clear in the sales literature. Mine turned out to be the slightly less sophisticated version. Easy to use and great fun! The time and date recording feature is particularly useful in stills mode. Both the daytime colour and night time infra-red produce good quality images in both still and video modes.

Essays in Zen Buddhism
Essays in Zen Buddhism
by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.08

5.0 out of 5 stars Essays in Zen Buddhism, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essays in Zen Buddhism (Paperback)
I ordered Essays in Zen Buddhism - 'series 2', but received a copy of 'series 1'. I have had a copy of the first series for more than 30 years, and having read it again recently decided to get the series 2 edition, to be followed by series 3. They are brilliant books and a 'must have' for any serious student of Zen. Having a second copy is not a problem as it will allow me to lend the book to other interested readers. For readers who are newer to the subject, I recommend 'An Introduction to Zen Buddhism' also by D T Suzuki.
