Nikon D3300 for Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback))
Nikon D3300 for Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback))
by Julie Adair King
Edition: Paperback
Price: 14.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent supplement to the meagre Nikon N3300 manual, 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an guide for someone who want to get the best out of their Nikon D3300. I had a working knowledge of photography but the changes since cameras went digital had left me behind. This guide will make you feel confident with all aspects of the D3300, going into sufficient depth to satisfy more proficient users. It's suitable for beginners too, but beware the order in which some topics are dealt could lead to confusion (for example, Chapter 2 goes into great depth about flash uses, and a discussion of exposure basics, the relationship between shutter speed and aperture etc does not take place until Chapter 4) - also, since this Dummy manual is so comprehensive, the learning curve for a beginner will be steep.

2.0 out of 5 stars Changed for the worse, 18 Aug 2014
Not a shadow on the old Tabac sold in the 1970's that had a dark, woody scent. This has citrus and floral notes and has lost the original character. Shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich, well balanced sound, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to replace some Nocs at seven times the price, that sounded disappointingly tinny. The sound is great on these Sony headphones, bass and treble in balance, sounds like the artist is playing in the same room. Comfortable to use. Build quality is satisfactory. Great buy for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better for speech than music, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No real bass - a rather tinny sound that would be fine for a telephone call but not what I was looking for in music. Build quality seems fine

3.0 out of 5 stars Good shirt let down by weak popstuds, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Frustrating because the shirt is good quality apart from the popstuds. The two on the cuffs were so weak, they came open just be brushing my little finger against them. Impractical. I've ended up supergluing them which solves the problem but is less than satisfactory.

Salter Best of British Union Jack Electronic Glass Timer

Offered by Perfumes4uu
Price: 8.49

2.0 out of 5 stars Buttons susceptible to failure, 3 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had good Salter products but this isn't one of them. The buttons on this are not the traditional click-buttons, but the iphone type where you just touch the glass. No problem in theory but on my timer, the hour and stop buttons worked only intermittently. The others sometimes had to be tapped several times to get them to work. I've returned the timer for a refund.

May be I was unlucky, but I would still have concerns about longevity. If you do decide to buy, it's worth bearing in mind that the timer is quite big (10 cms x 8 cms), and being glass, it's also quite heavy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Variable colour, 1 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've marked this as 2, not because of the poor quality of the cufflinks, which looked reasonable, but because the Amazon photograph showed dark blue cufflinks, yet what I received were black cufflinks. If colour doesn't matter to you, then this product is a reasonable buy. Colour mattered to me and I returned them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad handle design, 18 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As said by another reviewer, the end of the handle has been designed like a chisel so if you're the type that leans over the potatoes and pushes your palm on the end of the handle for power (as I am), you're going to end up with a really sore palm (as I did). Crazy not to have a blunt end to push against.

1.0 out of 5 stars Strong and perfumed, 13 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a user of Agua Brava, I bought this by the same maker in hope. However, in my view it's a very feminine scent, which may suit some but not me. I like the wood and spice on lavender in the Agua Brava and I'll be sticking to it in future.
