Very good book for understanding the building regulations which are always changing. Good overview needs more images but I use it regularly in my job as a quick reference. worth every penny

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for price paid, 14 Dec 2011
Very good cheap alternative to the more expensive filter has drawbacks of thread was very hard at first to connect to lens took a little bit of persuasion but got it in the end is a bit hard to rotate when framing a shot. That said it did what I wanted which was blue skies or seas and got rid of some of the haze but not all. I would recommend this as a start of filter or as a back up. I was impressed for the price I paid and so have no complaints it is what it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars its ok, 14 Dec 2011
As a cheap alternative to a macro lens they are exceptional but thats not to say they are brilliant. there is only a small part of the lens which is in the centre that is in focus as the rest is blurred around the edges. Have managed to get a couple of good shots with them but it took a lot of patience and time. not the sort of product that will get you those shots of bees close up or the dirt in the rug but as a general play around kit they are very good, allows you to get different style of photo to add to your portfolio with some kind of quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 14 Dec 2011
I bought this as a birthday present for my brother. After buying and using (after I had given it as a present) I was hooked now I use it more than he does. The build quality is not very good but that is what gives this camera the amazing ability to take pictures that are off the wall. The flash is very powerful and if in a small room may overpower the subject you are photographing saying that it works outside on a nice sunny day giving a colourful hue. We have used the standard 120n films in it which at the start was a little hard to get our heads round but there after was no problem and we have also used 35mm film without the frame for a different type of shot and appart from having to rewind the film in pitch dark turned out as we wanted.

Great product not that hard to work and very versatile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for price paid, 14 Dec 2011
Wasn't expecting anything exceptional but I was proved wrong. This filter was bought as a back up when out on my travels but I know use it as a preferred ND filter. Have used it to take long exposure shots during the day right through to night shots of a bright moon. It doesn't feel very sturdy but don't let that put you off this is capable of competing with more expensive ND filters.
Fantastic product well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very unique, 14 Dec 2011
Bought this as a Christmas present last year and forgot to leave a review. This product has a unique feel to it and if you are looking for a present for someone who likes trinket style things then this is definitely worth a buy. These boxes are now used to hold all sorts of things from bangles to ink pots, goes to show their versatility.

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought the puppet two days ago and had good expectations of its quality. Delivery was prompt and when I opened the parcel for inspection I was amazed at how good it actually was. The fur and the detail right down to the feet being like monster feet was incredible, the stitching was solid. I bought this as a Christmas present for someone who does puppet shows in Old peoples homes and in Schools and I know that she will absolutely love it as well as those that she performs to.

If I could give it any more stars I would

Fantastic product well done
