5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed!, 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived very quickly (less than 48 hours between ordering and delivery, and that was just after bank holiday! Exceptional!) The desk took around 6 hours to put together (that was with a manual screwdriver, an electric screwdriver would save you a lot of time). The build quality is very impressive; solid pine throughout.
Overall a great purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful soundtrack, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This soundtrack is beautiful, and perfectly assists the film, which is nothing less than a cinematic triumph!
The film itself is an experience and a half! The story is gripping, emotional and terrifying. Some scenes will have your heart racing, and others will have you in tears, in particular for me the phonecall home, which because of Ewen McGregors flawless acting, is one of the most emotional and tear jerking scenes in the film.
This soundtrack complements and assists the drama and emotion of the film.
It does this perfectly, with one theme in particular bringing hope amidst the horror of the situation in the film.
Overall an excellent soundtrack.
A lot of Oscars are in order for both the film and the soundtrack!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome!, 1 Jan 2013
The camera rig arrived well packaged, and very quickly considering the fact it came all the way from China to the UK. I was hesitant about buying something this expensive from so far away, but my experience with this seller has been a good one, and I will definitely be ordering from them again.

Now onto the rig itself! I am very impressed with the build quality; it is entirely metal apart from the shoulder pad, which is made of a sturdy rubberised material, and the handle covers which again are rubber.
The rig has a good sturdy weight to it, but is still light enough to carry around for quite a while without your arms getting tired. Their are screw holes at the bottom to mount the entire rig to your tripod.

The excellent thing about the industry standard 15mm rail design that this product utilises, is the fact that you can expand, upgrade and customise to your hearts content. I intend to add a follow focus, matte box and top handle.

The positioning of the rig can put strain on your eyes if like me you want to add things to the front. This can be prevented by getting extra rails, and moving the camera away from your eyes allowing you to focus on the screen much easier. I think I will eventually add an external monitor to the front, so that I can have the weight of the camera back on my shoulder, but still be able to view the screen.

However, if you don't want to add anything, this is still an excellent rig, and I would highly recommend it! I will be using it for video with my Canon 600d.

A brilliant product, which is well priced compared to what you can pay at companies such as Redrock. Very impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rode never fail to impress!, 9 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this boompole for about 7 months now and it is brilliant, but then again, what else would you expect from Rode? I have a lot of faith in Rode products now as they never fail to please. I use it with my Rode VideoMic Pro and it is a must have accessory! The boom pole is perfect for your average shot, it's lightweight and versatile. It's very well built and has survived drops and knocks from time to time. An excellent product from a brilliant company. And for just under £40, great value!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good headphones, 29 July 2012
I purchased these headphones about a year ago from a Sony store. They cost about £50 from the Sony store so I would reccommend buying them online for a better deal. When I bought these it was the first time I had spent more than £10 - £15 on headphones or speakers. The sound quality is amazing with relatively powerful base and extremely clear treble. They are quite comfortable but the headband is a little flat at the top causing it to press into your head, becoming quite uncomfortable after 10-15 minutes. My solution to this is; instead of adjusting each side evenly, for instance, level 4 on both sides.. Have level 2 on one side and 6 on the other.. That way you get the curved part of the headband at the top of your head for more comfortable wear. After a year of use with no problems I have recently noticed a rattling noise coming from the left earphone. it only happens in certain songs on the very deep base notes. Especially strings. Normal base from drums is fine but in orchestral pieces it is very distracting and annoying. The one year warranty is no longer valid. Other people seem to have had no problems even after 2 years. Do not let this put you off these headphones though, especially at this price! Very good before the problem started and the cable is very long for flexible use. An adapter is included allowing me to plug the headphones into a guitar amp and a digital piano. A very good set of headphones :)

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!, 22 Jun 2012
Very fast delivery. Ordered it wednesday night, delivered by parcel force on friday afternoon. It is an amazing tripod. The fluid head is very smooth and the thing is built like a tank. It feels sturdy strong and almost everything is made of metal. Very few plastic bits. Very impressed so far. I will update my review after a few weeks of use but I'm pretty sure it will be great!!

The cable arrived quickly and well packaged. It feels strong and not easily broken.

I am using it to connect my Rode Videomic Pro to my camera when it is mounted on a boom pole.

A brilliant bag. Good quality and protects my Canon EOS 600d perfectly. You can either put the camera in as it is or disconnect the lense and put them in seperatley.
