3.0 out of 5 stars It's Okay., 17 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My dog doesn't care at all when using this.
When I first tested it he put his ears up and looked curiously but he got bored of it after that.

Doesn't stop barking all the time even when tested on different pitches.

Im not saying it doesn't work but it has a limited effect on my dog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not used for Ping Pong but they are spherical and strong with no imperfection, 17 Jun. 2016

I don't use these for ping pong however they seem quite strong for what they are.
Just note they come from China so it will take a while for it to arrive in the UK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product once you get the camera balanced., 27 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great product but be prepared to work hard at getting it working.

The product comes with a card linking to a website but the setup video just has a guy showing you how to do it but these no verbal instruction and these some bits that may confuse when watching other videos for example the drop test.

The plate the camera connects to is great for setting the forward balance of the camera.

However to set the horizontal is terrible, you need to unlock a bolt at the back and then work against the friction of the metal plates to move the camera to one side, it's not great when you need to move it a fraction of length.

The build is very good, you can tell everything is strong and well built, the blue handle is even well built and i mean you could imagine a cheap handle with molded remnants left all over the handle but this is great and even has a hole to support on a stand while you archive a balance.
The handle is even a thick aluminium although covered so it's not a cheap corner cutting product.

The gimbal is very smooth and has no friction.
The product works well but you just need to get it balanced.

So I want to be able to load a lens and achieve a balance in no time, not 5 minutes in like 1 minute.
This device requires practice I guess.

If you brought one of those expensive glidecams they have the head plates with all the knobs all over them that will finely adjust the balance of the camera which is what you need to get it done quick time.
But this is 1/5 of the price so you can't complain.

I recommend ordering the product then looking at Youtube to understand how to set it up.
All in all it's great once you get it working, you get such a nice smooth motion.

Take the setup slow and don't get annoyed or expect to get going in under 10 minutes unless you get lucky.

I got it working quick but you have to be precise in getting everything balanced which means unlock bolt, adjust position, lock bolt.
Lift, Balance Test
Repeat

When you switch lens it can get annoying because in reality you need it balanced in the same time as it takes to mount the lens.

I was going to make markers on the device for 2 lens so I could set it up instantly (the camera plate has markings on it and an arrow for centre)
but the lens were different sizes so i would have to adjust the bolt position due to the back bolt been occluded for horizontal balance mixed with being able to adjust the focus ring comfortably.

It's only my first day using this so I guess with practice I will learn how to use it more efficiently but it does do the job.


Fire TV Stick Streaming Media Player

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device for streaming Netflix. Well build stick and remote., 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the device I wish existed a while back, i'll keep this one short and simple:

You can stream all the awesome stuff by downloading the apps i.e Netflix.

It's works very well, no lag, no streaming issues (at full HD) no quality loss.

Quick and decent user interface, there is no delay when you navigate, a lot of devices miss that trick with the user interface but this one is great.
The remote is nice too, I was playing some simple games on it and you can navigate well and the remote feels like a well built device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent Sound & decent Bass, 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this for my sister to use for her tablet as the sound isn't great on tablets.

I was actually surprised how good it was.
It's loud and when you open the two sections to reveal the little plastic pipe thing in the middle you get great bass.

This little thing packs a good amount of sound a decent amount of bass.

I was looking for a simple speaker that has a 3.5mm jack not one of them blue tooth ones or anything I wanted a simple one and came across this which is great.
It has a USB charger so you need to charge it vis a computer port or a TV port.

5.0 out of 5 stars The well worth it collection, 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have wanted the bond collection for a long long time but just didn't really ever get into the zone of wanting to spend over £90 in one transaction on movies. (even though it is worth it there is just other things I would want to buy and there will be loads of people thinking that, minus hardcore fans).

I've always loved bond and used to watch it every year as a kid on TV, who hasn't.

I will call this the simple collection because it is just the bond movies in a quick and simple format.

The outside box is really simple but it's a professional simple so it looks good.

Once inside you are presented with 3 blu-ray cases.

1962-1977
1979-2002
2006-2015

These cases could of been designed a tiny bit better, the covers are basically just white and the front looks a little empty.
If you look at the from of the main box you have all the bonds which looks good but on the blu ray cases it's a bit bland with a list of movies on the back.

But hey, who cares i'm not looking at the cases for 2 hours 10 minutes.

The films have a decent blu ray menu. Isn't not just a picture with 007 they have a little bit of design which doesn't ruin the film.
So we don't have simple clips from the film that remind us of everything and ruin the film.

The discs do have special features, i have just looked at two to be sure:
Goldfinger as a few special features
The World is not Enough has a load of special features.

I picked the world is not enough because i remember watching the special features as a kid and i know it had a tonne of them.
They all seems to be on this disc so that's good.

The quality of the movies is good, i haven't got to the newer films yet but the old ones look great.
I didn't watch the old bond films since i was young like more than 10 years ago and that was on TV and i do remember how it look and this is a great improvement (of course, basically they remastered them).

They have added a space for Spectre which is like weird because I know if I buy spectre I would rather have it in it's proper full designed case because it looks better and I don't want to throw the case away or leave it on the shelf without a disc inside.
But if you want you have the option. (to be honest that's called mini advertising but that's cool buy Spectre when it comes out).

To conclude this is the well worth it collection
Great value for money and you get all the films at a great quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great prime lens - a little noisy if pulling rack focus in film, 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good lens for the price.
It's a 50mm prime lens and you should note that on a crop sensor camera this would be around 80mm which basically means the view will be zoomed in.
This isn't perfect for in door shots unless you are in a large room but that's just a note to make.

The 1.8 F-stop is great for low light situations when compared to the starter lens kit which goes down to 3.5 (i believe) so this means you can shoot in doors or when it gets darker without resorting to a highier ISO shutter adjustments.
I shoot video so I need to stick to some rules for my ideal shot when it comes to motion blur etc.

The lens has a great focus ring because it's not right on the front like with the starter kit lens, it's set back a little and is a bit larger making it easier to pull focus.

You get a nice circular bokeh effect with this lens when doing a depth of field shot.

The downside of using this lens specifically when shooting film is the noise.
It's not terribly loud but it is noticeable.
If you are shooting outside with a lot of ambient noise from the traffic etc it might not be so bad but in doors it's not great.
So imagine you are shooting two characters and you want to rack focus between them and the primary sound is the dialogue, well you can be sure you will have to do some ADR to correct that in post so have your actors on standby.

Of course for a shot without changing focus it's really nice

For still photography it's great

I am comparing all these things to the starter lens because I would imagine most people considering to buy this lens would be looking for an upgrade to their starter lens and the variable starter lens can also reach a focal length of 50mm (18-55mm).
I guess the noise is the only thing you can complain about and that only really counts if you are filming and you are adjusting the focus through the shot.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Good: F/1.8 - Good bokeh and good amount of light let in
Bad: Auto focus is loud and crazy and focus in general is a little noisy but manual focus isn't that bad unless you are shooting quiet video
Good: Focus ring is a little thicker and it's not right at the front of the lens making it easier to pull focus

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I always use manual focus but i tried the auto focus to test it out and it's horrible, it didn't work great and it makes a crazy noise when doing it.
It's not a smooth transition, imagine starting a car engine but altering the noise frequencies.

If you have a solid 'subject' in the scene like a person the sound from the lens is like a laser printer when using the auto focus.

With the manual focus it's a nice smooth transition/sound so it doesn't sound like your camera is a bag of crap.
I have really pointed out the noise but that's the only real negative and it's not that bad especially for taking stills, i just wanted to give you some idea of what to expect.

The final thing that makes this lens awesome is if you fiddle with the focus ring moving it back and fourth really fast you can make it sound like BB-8 from star wars.

Price: £12.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Films and Great Price, 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used to watch Jurassic Park all the time as a kid so before purchase it would of been over 12 years since i seen these films and wow that seems insane but i never forgot any part of the first 2.

To get the Trilogy for such a great price it was an offer than couldn't be refused.
The films are great and you get loads of special features too which i also remember seeing on TV, it's all old special features so they don't look glamorous but it's all interesting stuff.

The films are great, I've watched the first 2 so far so i can't comment on the 3rd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great games (Both of them), 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great game, i played the first one on 360 and never got the 2nd one (but did want it).
The remastered version is great and the price is spot on.

For this price it's definitely worth a purchase.
Two games, remastered.

If your into these sort of games buy it, if your unsure of what the game is then watch some gameplay on youtube.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality mirror, 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product the only negative is the bolt will eventually keep getting loose at the bottom so you will find yourself tightening it.
But it does the job great.
