5.0 out of 5 stars Very good for my needs, 23 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very good camera bag, and well suited for my very amateur needs. There is good padding - you are able to rearrange the padded interiors to fit your various photo related tech. The bag offers room enough to hold my DSLR and one or two lenses. There is room for a decent sized tablet, mobile phone, chargers and flash cards and batteries. In essence everything you would need for small holiday, or similar photo related outing. My friend and work colleague, who takes his photography to the zenith, has a couple bags that run into three figures, however, my needs are more than adequately covered this bag - so why spend the extra money? For my part this bag is impressive, it's very affordable and it suits my needs. At this price range I find it very hard to fault the bag, and thus highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Minions come to fore, 22 April 2014
For me this was a sequel which actually improves on the original. There was plenty of eye-popping visual inventiveness and some great laughs that were cross generational and kept the whole family entertained, The minions are as a adorable as ever, and in this production it was great to see that they got more centre stage billing and they do really deliver the goods with lots of minion mischief.

5.0 out of 5 stars TTA Handbook series, 21 April 2014
I remember this title as part of a series of hardback editions from the late 1970s and early 1980s. The marriage of the images/colour plates of Spaceship wrecks with various short stories, which were tailored around them, was very enthralling and highly imaginative. It’s a real pity that they have not been republished I am sure there would be a market for them – I would certainly buy the whole set again, but not at some of the prices listed here under the sold as ‘new’.

5.0 out of 5 stars The pencils themselves oozed quality in their make, 19 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got these for my partner as she often does sketches as a hobby. I must say she was delighted with this very comprehensive range of colours that are included in the set. That said the pencils themselves seemed oozed quality in their make, and on initial use have given some very good results. The water colours blend very well on application. When in use you are able layer to give a textured feel to you picture, or use a small delicate sponge to smooth out the texture of the colouring - to give a flatter feel to the composition. The pencils really do produce a good depth of colour, and are great for dealing with those finer areas of work. In essence my partner finds the Staedtler pencils are real joy to work with.

5.0 out of 5 stars The return of our ever sarcastic Mike Talbot, 19 April 2014
This novel is supposedly a standalone, although to better understand some of the references you may need to read the Zombie Fallout series first. The novel starts with ever loveable, but ever sarcastic Mike Talbot as the lead character. He's not perfect, he probably even needs a Prozac and he has survived the zombie fallout - watching his family die. In this new tale Michael Talbot must undertake a journey across the decimation of the old world to protect what is left of humanity. The populace is scattered across small towns trying to rebuild - eke out an existence of what once was. With the support of Tommy, the other immortal vampire Talbot is plainly mankind's only defence against extinction. The beginnings of new series rather like the Zombie Fallout.

5.0 out of 5 stars The essential numismatic compendium for British coins, 18 April 2014
This is probably the definitive compendium to British coins, as one reviewer has said, this publication excludes Scottish items. The publication will only be superseded by annual up dated editions. The illustrations and colour plates are done rather well with copious notes and detailed narrative to show trends and patterns as well other information of numismatic value. This is a very useful edition to have whether you are a novice, serious collector as well those interested History.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those exceptional albums, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dummy (Audio CD)
Dummy is the debut album of the Bristol-based group Portishead. Dummy is one of those CDs that still sounds as fresh as the day that it was released. So what's all the fuss about? Well basically, it's one of those exceptional albums where almost every single beat seems to be in place, every single little record scratch and sample fits into the mix and provides even more atmosphere, and lyrics that just melt in your mind. Each track really does create a new atmosphere of its very own that runs the range of emotions. Beth Gibbons is one of the main reasons this album truly comes to the fore. Gibbons effortlessly creates mood on every track, whether she's crooning on "It Could Be Sweet" or strutting it out to full effect on "Glory Box." Overall, if you're into trip-hop even the slightest and don't own this album, you should probably drop whatever you're doing and go out and buy it right now.

4.0 out of 5 stars These are pretty good, 18 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is my very first ever foray into the realms of gaming headsets, so I have no real base line to judge them against. I have always used bog standard headsets for my gaming needs. However, this Corsair CA-9011124 has really been a game changer - no pun intended. I have found them comfortable to wear, although I am not one to play any one game for more than a couple of hours. So I cannot attest to how comfortable they are after a really long gaming session. I really love the bass on these headphones and overall the sound fidelity is very good, and does not detract from voice quality. The surround sound effect is a surprising experience when you hear for the first time. My only gripes are the overall design could have been more refined and certain types of music does not sound well through these headsets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trip hop that is addictively depressing, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Portishead (Audio CD)
This for me is Trip hop at its seminal best, an album that is grainy , harsher and supplying scratchy atmospherics – that goes beyond their first album Dummy. At times some of the tracks seem to lead one down a somewhat dark path, but it’s a path worth treading. Others will say that this album is more of an acquired taste, and compared to their debut album Dummy, far too experimental. None the less for me this is a deliciously wicked album that satisfies my tastes, for those wishing to expand their musical tastes, and enjoy alternative rock then this album is really worth sampling.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Autochrome process that a enabled a great project, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A book that serves to place its subject matter, the stunning colour plates of Albert Kahn, at the core of its subject matter. Each image is given just enough description, to give the reader a reference point for the image, the image then tells its own story. This book is an excellent offering and supplements the BBC documentary that brought to the fore Albert Kahn’s vision to document, through living colour snapshots of a rapidly changing world. A project he financed from his own funds, his photographers travelled far and wide to deliver some of most sumptuous pictorials of the early 20th Century.
