The scent from this stuff is amazing, and it gives your skin an amazing tingling freshness - i love it ! Follow on with the Prosaso shave cream for the ultimate shave. It may almost become a pleasure again !

This stuff is ace. You only need the tiniest amount for a lovely rich cream ( recommend using with a shave brush for best results ). Fab rich lather gets you a great close shave with a great fresh scent too. Use with the pre and post cream to maximise the effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect mix of price and quality, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had been looking to upgrade my tripod for quite some time now and like many of you, was looking for that mix of good solid quality, without the silly price tag. Well folks - this is it.
I found this at the Focus on Imaging exhibition in Birmingham in March 2012, demonstrated to me by the Giottos team. It is solid without being too heavy and also has the benefit of the moveable centre column. I was recommended by the Giottos salesman NOT to buy it at the show as it could be found cheaper online - which i thought was very good of him, considering i was happy with the price he quoted. So finally found it on here and bought it - and what a good move that was. Use it 3 - 4 times a week on average and LOVE it. I use it with the 652 ball head Giottos GTMH1311-652 Ball and Socket Head with Friction Control and it is an amazing combination. It is SO easy to make adjustments with the ball head and the use of a separate friction control allows you to decide on the mix of hold and movement to suit your needs.
If you are looking for a quality, pro-level tripod at a decent price (this tripod AND ball head combination for less than £200 ) , then your search is over - buy this one !


Black Rapid RS-5 Camera Strap
Black Rapid RS-5 Camera Strap
Offered by WestBase Direct - UK Registered Company. VAT receipt included
Price: £81.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but worth it, 14 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had been looking for a decent camera strap for ages and had previously steered clear of Black Rapid purely on price. However, having looked at several cheaper alternatives I found them all to be just that - cheap. If I am going to have a couple of thousand quids worth of kit hanging from a strap, I need to be sure it is going to be safe and although this model still seemed pricey, it also seemed much sturdier than the competition so I decided to give it a go. Am so glad I did and as the old saying goes - "you get what you pay for". You may also think it a bit on the expensive side but boy does it deliver. Have used in a few times now with a Canon 5D Mk II and a 70-200 lens attached and carried it around all day quite comfortably.
If you are looking for a quality strap you can rely on and that is strong enough to carry heavy pro level kit, then go for Black Rapid. The RS-5 is a good middle ground model between the basic one with no extras to larger models with loads of bells and whistles and attachment loops. The built in pockets in the RS-5 are enough to carry your phone, spare cards and batteries and business cards but still feeling comfortable. No velcro in sight either for a change - clean and strong magnetic fastenings are great. I love it and it is a permanent feature now - if camera is out then Black Rapid is out too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and very readable history, 18 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Terracotta Army (Paperback)
Brilliant. John Man has clearly mastered the art of writing a "history" book, and making it as easy to read and as gripping as any best selling thriller. This book is a fascinating account of the discovery of, and the story behind, the Terracotta Army. Based on thorough research which includes interviews with those involved in the initial discovery and the building of the museum, this book just makes you want to head for China immediately to see this piece of history for yourself. I am now insanely jealous of anyone who has been lucky enough to visit the museum and it is now top of my list of dream destinations. I read this book after reading John Man's book on "The Great Wall" and that had the same effect on me. I have always been fascinated by China and Chinese history buy John Man is turning this into an obsession !

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and a bit dated, 13 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From the contents page this seemed to be exactly what I wanted - something that would give me some guidelines to work with to help generate more ideas for posing people as i try to build confidence in my portrait photography. The reality was a bit disappointing. It is full of extreme detail about hands here, fingers there, eyes somewhere else etc but does not follow through with example images of what the end result looks like. Poses sound very contrived but I am sure they would look ok if you could actually see the end result. There are loads of illustrations provided but in my view they did not always match up with the text. It is also very "americanised" - many of the pictures are a bit too cheesy for my liking.
Despite the front cover illustration and the general title of "guide to posing", the book is still full of many wedding pictures. I know wedding pictures have to be posed too, but my main aim was for general portrait ideas and I didn't really want a book full of wedding dresses.
In the end I tok full advantage of Amazon's wonderful returns policy and I sent it back !
If you know nothing about potrraits it may be worth a look, but other than that, I would give it a miss.
