5.0 out of 5 stars Resolved palm pain, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been getting sharp pains in the palm of my hand from working daily with a mouse. This cushion has elevated the issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Colour, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was in two minds before I purchased this monitor as I had read all sorts of negative reviews about colour bleed, dead pixels, issues when scrolling etc. I may have been lucky, but I purchased this monitor for use with my Mac Mini and it is an excellent display. The colour is very accurate, I'm using the factory calibrated sRGB and Adobe RGB modes and they seem spot on. The standard U2413 monitor profile on Mavericks has washed out colours but if you choose the corresponding sRGB or AdobeRGB it works a treat.

I highly recommend this monitor. I also have a U2412, an excellent monitor, but if you need colour accuracy then there is no comparison. Having also owned a last gen Cinema display, this is my favourite so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally well made and perfect fit for half the price of the Fuji one, 29 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely case that is exceptionally well made and fits the Fuji X10 perfectly. It feel like a quality item and has X10 embossed in the top of the case. It has a magnetic release so can be opened easily and is easy to remove to access memory card, battery or tripod mount. The picture shown is the X100 version but the case is essentially the same, only designed to fit the X10. Whether it fits with the 52mm filter adapter on, like the X100 version, I cannot say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome little camera, 29 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just purchased this last week as my second camera but have totally fallen in love with it. It is very well built and works exceptionally well. It can produce wonderfully shallow depth of field shots from it's fast lens and has an array of excellent features.

After purchasing I read up about the Orb issues and was initially concerned so I did many tests in situations which should produce orbs and have been unable to reproduce them. Either this is an intermittent issue, occurs very rarely or the news sensors are already making their way into new cameras. In any case I feel reassured that should it become a problem Fuji have agreed to replace the sensors in all faulty X10 cameras.

The only issues with the camera are how easily the LCD display scratches, I got some small scratches on the first day of use, being used to the Canon screens on their top end DSLRs I had always thoughts screen protectors a waste of time, however they are essential with this camera. I purchased these and didn't have issues with bubbles or alignment: 6 IN 1 PACK CLEAR LCD SCREEN PROTECTORS FOR FUJIFILM FINEPIX X10 - 3 LAYER ANTI-SCRATCH DISPLAY SAVERS

If you are looking for a leather case I highly recommend the BV & Jo case that is 1/2 the cost of the Fuji one and very high quality: 2 Parts Hard Leather Case for Fuji FujiFilm Finepix X10 digital Camera (Brown)

I would have also liked the battery to last a little longer, again I may just have high expectations, however this really isn't an issue as you can pick up Energiser replacements from about 4.

Overall an excellent little camera that takes amazing shots, with lots of creative freedom, small enough to take everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Device, 15 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased this a week ago and have been delighted with the quality and ease of use of this device. It is small enough to drop in your pocket and powers on quickly allowing you to capture the moment in 720p HD film, all for 140!

Pros:
* Fantastic picture quality
* Easy To use
* Very portable
* Good build quality

Cons:
* Need to download beta FlipShare (which is hard to find a link) for use with Mac OS X Snow Leopard (or Use iMovie)
* Takes forever to charge (7 hours!) (TIP: As you can use any AA batteries purchase some good quality rechargables with a rapid chargerand use these instead, such as the GP Recyko 2 Hour Fast Battery Charger & 4 x AA Rechargeable Batteries!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good in-depth reference of iPhone development, 1 Mar 2009
Maher's Book is an in-depth reference into the world of iPhone application development aimed at both beginners and experienced Objective-C / Cocoa developers alike

The book is concise and more theoretical than many of the others I have read on the subject and covers everything you need to know to get started. One of the best things about this book is the depth it goes into many of the topics. For example, the book goes into great detail about consuming RESTful web services and parsing XML and makes use of real-world Web APIs such as Google Maps API for these examples. The book also provides a good insight into using the local file system and creating and working with local sqlite3 databases s well as several concise chapters on creating views and working with pretty much every control. Unfortunately the book lacks any coverage of Interface Builder (this may partly be down to when the book was written and what features were available at the time of writing) which provides in many cases quicker and easier solutions to creating views and handling events. I feel the example views shown in the various screen shots have suffered because of this.

Overall this book serves as an excellent reference, going into more depth than many of the other books, and is certainly good value and just over 20.
