3.0 out of 5 stars Really just too expensive for such a simple thing. £20 would be more reasonable., 31 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The price is, IMHO, ridiculous, but if you want to get the most from your expensive meter, camera and lens then I guess it's a necessary evil. Three stars for poor value, although I'm sure it's a fine product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great price, but incompatible with my tripod threads., 31 Oct 2014
Slow postage, as expected, but arrived ahead of forecast. Unfortunately they seem not to fit the threads on my small tripods, despite them working with other adapters and ballheads. Cheap, but ultimately useless to me unless I can force them onto the thread.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely satisfactory alternative to the real thing at a bargain price., 31 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A simple enough product, with little to go wrong. It fits and it works. So long as it doesn't break it's hard to give less than five stars, especially at 1/5 the price of the Canon original.

Hopeless at providing answers for the UK. So much for using location.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works pretty well with a tripod for rainy landscapes, 31 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to save my camera and lens from the rain in the Lake District, with the brolly attached to my tripod rather than a buggy. Obviously this is not a viable solution in windy conditions, but no fault of the product. It does fit my tripod leg, just, and the shaft is long enough to keep the brolly clear of the FOV of a 24mm lens on a full frame body. It would be nice to have a finer degree of angle adjustment, but I can get it where it needs to be so that's all that matters. For the price it seems quite the bargain - if it proves durable. One star deducted because finer angle adjustment would be helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not great., 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works, and is better than using the game controller for media functions, but button layout is poor and line of sight and a good aim are necessary, even just 8-9 feet away.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you care about colour then get one., 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems a little expensive for what it is, but this is the going rate. If it maximises the output quality from your camera and reduces editing times then suddenly the price doesn't seem so bad. Anyway, it certainly has a marked impact on colour reproduction with my cameras and I look forward to better pictures going forward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fully compatible with 5D3 camera and charger., 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Early days, so four stars for now, but these charge properly in my 7D and 5D3 chargers and can be registered and reported when fitted into the DSTE grip for my 5D3. They will probably improve after a few charge cycles, at which point they will be given the full give stars. Certainly the value is undeniable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and performance, 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived today, so it's not been exposed to long term use, but initial views as follows...

- appearance is good and the textured finish feels nice, at least the equal of the 5D3 itself.
- took some wriggling to fit the first time, but now good on and off easily enough.
- all controls work nicely.
- wireless remote is a nice touch for a very small additional outlay and really the while product appears to offer exceptional value for money.
- the only negative to report do far is a visible gap (very small) between grip and body in the middle area of the grip. However, there is no place here for water ingress, so probably no need for concern. The bigger question mark is to what degree, if any, weather resistance might have been compromised. It is very hard to make a judgement, but I tend to protect my gear from the elements so I'm not too concerned.

Overall it gets give stars for bargain pricing, fast delivery and good performance.
