Good secure wallet for my phone. Magnetic latch opens the correct way & theres plenty of bite in the magnet. My cards fit nicely but can ease out if not carefull. All the cutouts line up perfectly too.
Good Buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best protectors ever, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are simply the best i've ever tried, unlike the ones on ebay. These only look great if you fit them without getting dust under the film, so here's a little tip on applying these perfectly to your hand set if you don't want to use the sticky cloth procedure... Firstly, polish the screeen on your device. Now get your vacuum cleaner out.... yes that's right.... Put your brush attachment on the end & first vac your hand set then vac the new protector & your hands to remove dust from packaging etc. Ensure you're in a dust free room (no carpeted rooms) & the vavuum cleaner is venting in another room (after all, we don't want to stir up more dust)
Now you can simply peel & fit by following the instructions on the protector.
I've had mine for 3 days now & there is not a single mark on this protector, it has a high gloss finish & no matter how many times you rub the film, it stays like new.
Very highly recommended!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 9 Mar 2013

Average ink sets = Average print quality.

I've always used Canon ink with my Pro9000 printer because the colours are always spot on but i thought i'd give this ink a go because the reviews were good. I usualy print from CS6-ps with colour management & disable printer management. This ensures what i see onscreen (calibrated monitor) comes out of my printer. Unfortunately with this ink, i had to adjust the colour sliders in printer properties to compensate for the slightly different colour cast this ink produces, so not great for final printing costly A3 size images. If you want to print with correct colour without fiddling with print settings, then Canon ink is hard to beat. Worth buying at the price if you're not too concerned about the colour issue. Other reviewrs have noted that there is no difference, is this after you guys have spent hours & tons of paper fine tuning colour management in your print driver? Something you don't need when you stick with original ink..... Buy it if you're on a tight budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody great big bag, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The size of this bag is perfect for all my gear & it balances well once you put your expensive kit inside. I've managed to put 5 lenses & 1 body into the base, along with lightmeter/grey cards/flash triggers/ filters/cleaning wipes/brushes/pens/cards etc with ease (bag is probably 70% full) I also like the fact that your're not having to force your items to fit into each section. ( i removed 4 dividers to suit my kit) What's more, there appears to be just enough rigidity in the bag to protect your investment. This ought to keep the serious photographer happy when out on location, not a bag for walking around in all day unfortunately. Stiching & build quality can't be faulted for the price. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paper looks great, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This paper is great for printing on both sides but i had a problem using this on my samsung clp320 laser printer, it just comes out with ink smears. Amazingly, i managed to get it to work with inkjet printers & a different laser printer with great results. Although i probably won't buy this again for a while, it is good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the better books i've purchased to join my collection. It's a quality hardback manual, loaded with good advise & pictures of poses to inspire you. I't's jam packed with very easy reading text to explain the why's & do's of posing etc, with occasional tips on camera settings & so on. It's a book you can pick up from any page & it'll help you to get that perfect shot with ease. It's improved my studio work ten fold so i'd recommend this book to even a pro, because even so called pro's get things wrong.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & cheerfull, 29 Dec 2012

This is a cheap but annoying alternative to protecting your ipad.
Too much screen area is covered by this case, so making it awkward to see the edges of your screen.
The pen is the best piece in this set, worth the 2 stars!!


Corrective Lighting, Posing and Retouching for Digital Portrait Photographers
Corrective Lighting, Posing and Retouching for Digital Portrait Photographers
by Jeff Smith
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.68

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what i expected, 20 Dec 2012
Reading this book is a chore, the way the author explains any techniques is not very engaging at all. I found myself jumping to pages of interest but there aren't many because he's too busy talking about his personal experiences. The author gives you a snippet of information & leaves you wanting more (show me the money!!). This leaves you feeling you've just been taken for a ride. There are no diagrams of lighting at all in this book - No tips on setting up to create a certain look - It's just a book showing off the authors work with just enough information to please the easily pleased. Alot of tips are on how to hide/pose ugly, unsightly areas or larger women but no real technical explanation on how to light. This one has to go back to Amazon i'm afraid.
