Thrustmaster T60 Racing Wheel (PS3/PC DVD)
Thrustmaster T60 Racing Wheel (PS3/PC DVD)
Price: £34.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly useless, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This wheel was such a disappointment. The knee braces fall off continually, the wheel has NO sensitivity in the middle so you have to oversteer everything. The pedals seem well made but the overall feel is flimsy and the cable will not reach a seat unless you usually camp on top of the TV. Also, the wheel is VERY small...and plastic....and undrivable....and just rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars very impressed...., 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these batteries to use with the GH4 professionally and I am impressed. Unlike the generic batteries on the GH2 these batteries do show the remaining battery charge in the GH4 monitor (which is SO helpful) and I have to say I did a shoot at City Hall where I filmed over 100 minutes of 4K video (more than 64Gb of video) and the battery was showing only half empty by the end. It may well have packed up after a few more minutes, I don't know, but it was impressive and I didn't need to use any of my other three batteries. They charge reasonably quickly as well, so if you were on site with a few batteries and a double charger you should be all set. Definitely recommended (though do read the camera manufacturer's small print on using generic batteries instead of proprietorial ones....then ignore it as the obvious sales patter it is and get these batteries). Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Initial assessment very positive, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The U3 cards are reasonably new and this seems like very good value compared to other cards not he market. Have used Transcend cards for professional video without any problem for years and I have shot 4K video on this card with the GH4 with no problem at all. Having said that, I have shot 4K video with the GH4 on my previous U1 Scandisk Extreme cards without any problem either, so I am NOT saying that this card is definitively faster or better, but as a U3 card it probably is and, as I said, is very good value at £27. OH, and it's a very pretty gold colour....weeeeeee

5.0 out of 5 stars No issues with this charger, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a professional videographer using GH4 cameras and I've used the Ex-Pro chargers on both GH2 and GH4 and they are excellent. Not the strongest design, but you don't usually throw chargers around. I use them as a back up to the Panasonic charger when on site as charging two batteries simultaneously gives great flexibility when filming. For the price if you want a charger you can't go wrong with this bit of kit....recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars very slim and well made, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is excellent. I wanted a case that would add hardly any size or weight to my iPhone and this case is slim and looks great (honest). If you are used to iPad cases that turn the device on and off when you open and close them then remember this doesn't, so you do have to manually turn the phone on and off (not a problem, just remember it's not magnetic when you use it). The case is solid enough to protect the phone, and most importantly the screen, but is not designed for throwing or regularly dropping your phone (if you are going to do that get a sturdier case). The only down side is that it takes some effort to slide the phone into and out of the case, but on the up side that does make the fit snug and safe (my previous case used to drop the phone out of it too easily). However, if you are regularly wanting to remove the case to put the phone in a cradle or sound system then the tight fit could be annoying. Apart from that, a top case...recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Good construction, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As long as you are not needing a spirit level (and I don't as I use this mostly on a monopod and sometimes on a crane to give flexibility to the camera angle) this is a very solid and well constructed piece of kit. The quick release plate fits the Manfrotto plates of the same design very well and the camera can be switched quickly, adjusted, and tightened with no risk of movement or slip. Good value for the price, recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Very solid and sturdy, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first monopod I've bought as a professional videographer (now that cameras are so much smaller) and I'm impressed with it's sturdiness whilst being light and portable. With a decent head attached it is a very useful tool when filming without lugging around a bit tripod or trying to avoid over zealous security guards (you cameramen out there know what I mean). Great value for money for an excellent manfrotto monopod, but I don't know what else is available at the price so do look around, but if you are thinking of this one then rest assured it's quality....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pens, value pack, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These pens are clearly excellent quality, my daughter always uses them for her studies and swears by them, and this is basically a very good value pack. Compared to the price of these pens in, for example, Tesco's it is a NO BRAINER to get the pack, the price per pen is a fraction of the cost. Recommended

This is a very good adapter, I use it professionally to put the excellent Canon 50mm F1.4 on my GH4, the connections is solid, the construction is metal and very sound...basically no problems with this adapter. If you need FD to MFT then don't hesitate...

5.0 out of 5 stars So slim and elegant, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to say I am very impressed with this case, it's design is slim and practical, it looks good and makes the phone hardly any more bulky than without the case. I bought it for my daughter and she loves it, so it's clearly not 'uncool' if you are getting it for a teenager. Really very good case for the money, highly recommended.
