Works perfectly as a flash diffuser and doubles as protective cover for the flash gun lens. Good price too. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cracking Lens, 14 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I give this lens the highest rating because it performs brilliantly. Images are bitingly sharp across the aperture range and across the zoom range. It handles high contrast subjects very well and build quality is excellent. I have used it for over a week in difficult conditions. Just be sure at the widest setting you examine your view finder for objects like your finger or foot aren't in the frame Yes it is expensive, but for those who like the compact micro four thirds system would not be disappointed with this lens. One very minor thing, the carry pouch could be more substantial for a lens of this price.

Coverage of his early stuff and his later stuff. All good from a great performer, a real rock legend in his own right and his inclusion in the Traveling Wilburys underlines his status.

Excellent accessories for the Karcher Window Vac. Would recommend to anybody with south facing windows. No streaks in the sunshine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canon Canoscan 9000f Film Print Document Scanner, 16 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this scanner a few weeks ago to scan my transparencies and have been using it almost daily. It is quite large and just fits on the desk. I found set up easy and I was trying it out in minutes.
Its primary purpose is to scan transparencies with the occasional document. I found the set up to scan trannies easy, although the process of scanning 4 at a time a long process, but in fairness probably only as slow as my previous dedicated film scanner. I have found it best to decide beforehand what the scanned slide is to be used for and scan at an appropriate resolution, this speeds up the process if the slides are going to be viewed on TV screen or made into a small print. I don't see the purpose of scanning at 48 bit colour depth if there is work to be done in Adobe Elements because many of the tools in this software are not available and requires converting to 8 bit RGB. If however you are archiving or scanning a slide for professional print reproduction then I would scan at the highest quality, the results from this scanner are excellent.
My previous film scanner cost over 600 and I have found the Canon scanner equal in output in every respect and in terms of resolution better. The scanner drivers are easy to use for advanced users and the one touch scanning good for less experienced users.
I would recommend this scanner to anyone looking for a versatile machine. At the price it is good value and Amazons delivery was upto its usual fast speed. Now having a faster computer I have no problem with scan speed and subsequently change my rating to 5 star.


Breville VDF034 Stainless Steel Fryer

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Fryer, 16 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have found this fryer a delight to use. It does chipped potatoes perfectly in a matter of minutes. We found it better to fry for a few minutes at a lower temperature then finish them at 180deg. The unit is compact, easy to store and easy to clean. Frying without a lid was not a problem as there was no splashing if you dry your potatoes first. All in all a nice fryer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Value, 15 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought this table represented good value. It was delivered in double quick time and was well packaged. The assembly instructions were clear and precise and contained a telephone number if any problems were encountered. The table was sturdy when assembled and with the tv stood on it was very secure.


Guardsman and Commando: The War Memoirs of RSM Cyril Feebery DCM
Guardsman and Commando: The War Memoirs of RSM Cyril Feebery DCM
by David Feebery
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 18.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Memoirs, 9 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to admit the motive for purchasing this book was because it was about a relative. However, having read it I would recommend it to anyone interested in special forces operations during WW2. The book takes you through Cyril Feebery's army career from joining the Grenadier Guards at 18 to receiving the DCM from the King after the war. It covers the dark days of the war but is lightened by better days when a bit of fun was had.There is also a glimpse of his personal reflections. I must thank David Feebery for publishing this and not letting the memoirs die on Cyril's passing.
