5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap way to get Freeview HD if you have an Xbox ONE, 30 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheaper than a freeview HD box without the clutter, everything works as it should and it was easy to setup. Streaming to iPad whist playing a game has the potential to avoid arguments if you have a single TV and want to game and someone else wants to watch something on TV. The only gripe I have is that they probably could have built this into the console...

Seeing as most decent Freeview HD boxes are over £50, this works well and the additional features make it great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't ask for much more, 30 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Been using this bag in anger for about 6 months now and it's great, holds an impressive amount for gear for such a compact bag and I like how you can reconfigure the dividers to suit what you're carrying. Padded section for iPad/tablet is great too. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this bag to anyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not really an 'equivalent' to the LP-E6., 2 Sep 2014
No good for my 70D, charger just blinks all the time so not really an LP-E6 equivalent...

Well built and great transfer speeds, there really is no point buying a really cheap reader when this is less than a tenner and lets you transfer at the full speed of the card!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good budget option, 27 Aug 2014

A good alternative to the prohibitively expensive OEM Canon replacement, loses a star for having a slightly shorter lifespan than the original Canon NB 10L.

3.0 out of 5 stars An expensive necessity, 18 Aug 2014

It's expensive but does the job, something that should be included in the box with the lens. Outer plastic marks very easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent general use Telephoto, 18 Aug 2014
Body: Canon 70D
Upgrading from: Tamron SP AF 70-300 F/4-5.6 Di VC USD
Use: Motorsport

There's plenty of comprehensive reviews so I won't waffle on for too long, in short this is a fantastic lens with excellent build quality and AF that performs flawlessly. IS works very well in both modes and is very effective for panning shots. The lens is sharp even when at it's widest at 300mm which is a huge bonus for me and it renders very well with pleasing out of focus highlights. Images are nice and contrasty and I find that I don't need to apply much in the way of post processing on my shots. For an L lens it is very light and compact, something that would be a plus to someone that wants top image quality without the bulk of some of the bigger Canon L telephotos.

It's probably not £600 odd better than the non L 70-300 however it is good enough to justify the price and I wouldn't have any hesitations recommending it. The only thing I don't like is Canon omitting the tripod ring from the package.
