This stuff is hard to use, don't believe the "it's quick and easy to use " hype, it's fiddley, annoying and is a pain to use, don,t buy it

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Handy Light, 29 Jun. 2012
I wish i had one of these years ago, It is very good not just as a light but also as a mini charger for phones, GPS units and cameras.It comes with adaptors. The light can also be charged by computer by usb cable supplied. It is small and compact and easy to use.
Very good for emergancies, the other good thing is with that orange colour on the handle and edges, it is not easy to miss in your backpack or in the grass.
Hope this helps

5.0 out of 5 stars A solar panel with punch, 29 Jun. 2012
Bought this brilliant solar panel for camping but I found it to be very verstile for other things like charging my ipods and phones when I am out and about photographing, I found it easy to use, the attachement system is very handy, it keeps the panel flat on a back pack or anywhere you wish to mount it. the case is elasticated and does not just rely on one type of fastening. The equipment stowage pockets on the back is very handy for stowing the attachments when you are not using them.
I found the charge rates accurate to what the product said it would but that depends on the weather and cloud cover, the same as all SOLAR panels.
It has a light sytem on the front of the panel that indicates the charge levels.
Overall a very good charger for the price and it arrived on the day stated,
thanks modern fuels, Hope this helps with your choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a stick !, 26 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a Tri Pod but required something light, easy and quick to use, this little mono pod meets all three requirements. It is very sturdy and can be very quickly folded up or downand and attaches to the camera in seconds. I have a Canon 60D and it has no problems with supporting the weight. Having that bit of stubility is very useful especialy if you like Landscape or Macro photography.
It is a bargin and the build quality is very good for the price. Hope this helps

5.0 out of 5 stars A very sweet apple, 9 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
New Apple TV (Latest Model - Launched Mar 2012)
A very good product, easy to set up and use, if you have other apple products or devices it becomes a hub for playing games through,play movies, listen to music, watch u tube, see movie reviews and more is coming. You can link it to your computer and play anything you have in I tunes including audio books etc. it is full HD and in my mind a very good media hub.
It linked first time wirelessly or you can wire it directly to your modem.it is small, unobtrusive and is operated remotely
Hope this helps

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic camera, 9 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this camera about 2 months ago after spending time with a fuji hS 20 exr which is a very good bridging camera but like all compacts and bridging cameras the sensor size is the only thing that lets them down, but the canon 60 d is in another universe, it is vey versatile. It has the same quality as a 7d but with more options, it has the same sensor, you can use the same lenses, the 60d uses sd cards, (unlike the 7d) the tilt screen and display is very good, bright and clear.
The kit lenses are a good first set of lenses and very capable of capturing good quality pictures. I enjoy macro photography so I have also invested in a canon 60 and 100mm macro lenses that double up as very good portrait lenses, they are very very good. Please be aware that any DSLR camera is only as good as the glass on the front of the camera. Few people can spend lots of money on lenses, so look on the web for reviews and only get the lenses you want.
There is an option in live view ( taking photo's using the screen instead of the view finder) to zoom in to the subject/ scene by x5 and x10 time to get awesome clarity, try it is very good.
The ease of use is very good and it has all the point and shoot options as well as the professional modes, it takes RAW and JPEG shots and you can process the RAW photos in camera ! The battery lasts for about 1200 shots depending if you use the live view or view finder, more than enough for a days shooting.
This camera is not as heavy as the 7d but is not flimsy in any way, very good build quality. Hope this helps people with their choice Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera including EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II and EF-S 55-250mm IS II Lens Kit

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellant Camera, 18 May 2012
Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera including EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II and EF-S 55-250mm IS II Lens Kit
This camera is simple enough for anyone to use AND can be as complicated or indepth as you wish. its simple because canaon have a "Q" button that allows you very quick access to all the controls that are relevant to the "scene" or priority you are using. This lens kit is also very good for beginners lenses but i like macro photography and splashed out on a dedicated lens. in short it is an excellant camera and a more than capable lens kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good All rounder, 31 Oct. 2011
This printer is very good as an all round home/office scanner/printer and photo printer. I found it reasonably fast (about 9 PPM on a MAC) Photo print quality was very good. it can scan double sided and print the same. It is also Wi Fi enabled, I found it easy to use. The opperating disc works on most Operating system BUT the new Lion, If you are using a MAC with lion, just connect to your computer either by wi-Fi or by cable, go in to printer setting and it should find it and down load the right upgrade. The scanner Lid is not telescopic to take large documents.
Overall a very good printer, I would get the large ink cartrages for it as it saves money, and you only have to replace the colour you use the most. Enjoy !

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational Samsung, 15 Aug. 2011
What a TV !, Samsung's LCD's are Good but this LED TV is sensational, very easy to set up. I have played blu ray's on this TV and they are brilliant, the picture quality is second to none. Other TV producers should take a leaf out of samsungs book and provide picture quality as good as or better (if that is possible). I visited a well known TV outlet that allowed me to see LCD, Plasma and LED at the same time, the LED won outright for colour, picture sharpness and picture quality,the only bug bear is that sound quality is medioca but saying that all flat screen TV's are the same.
In conclusion, a brilliant LED TV, bags of features, connect it to a blue ray or other HD devices and it is second to none.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Blu ray Player, 10 Aug. 2011
I Reciently bought the Samsung BD C5900 Blu ray player and I must say that I am very pleased with its features, operation and picture quality. It is very simple to connect and use. I watched Avatar on blu ray and was blown away by the quality of picture. It also does a very good job of upscaling DVD's too. For the money I paid the quality is astounding of this little gem, proving that sometimes you DO get a lot for relitively little money. Well done Samsung.Samsung BD-C5900 3D Blu-ray Player Wifi Ready (Dongle Required)
