5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price - but not for use in China with GPS, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely camera - light and easy to use. The GPS is great. But the manual says 'may not work in China'. Should say "definitely disabled GPS in China and near borders of other countries with China but we will still eat the battery power anyway".

In use the main mode dial can move easily from the auto mode - some of my expected color pictures became 'creative' mode with sort of sepia look. Actually quite artistic but not expected. So check the mode dial after putting it in a case and removing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and clear vision, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very lightweight - I was a bit suspicious of quality when buying due to light weight and price. But I was wrong to be suspicious - perfectly clear vision and easy to use. Great buy,

3.0 out of 5 stars Center Pocket a bit tight ..., 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The center pocket is a bit tight if you put the wrist strap on the camera. And I tried to put my spare SD card and a battery in the 2 side pockets - this makes it a bit hard to close so it really is just a camera case. I'd hoped to use it to carry the spare card and battery. It's OK for that but not great. Another 1/10 of an inch wider would have helped.

4.0 out of 5 stars It does as it says, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hard to write a glowing report about a battery but it is an original battery and works as you'd expect. Delivered on time - packaging a bit 'unofficial' looking - just a polythene bag but battery really looks identical to the one that came with the camera.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed on me after a week or 2., 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, bought this for use with the Panasonic camera. Worked OK for 2 weeks. Then the camera would not write to it. I was at the start of a long (2 week) journey so this was bad. Luckily I had a cheaper brand 8GB spare card as backup. That worked. Now the card is junk - won't format in camera. Luckily I got the photos off it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It just works - brilliant for travelling, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took it on a long journey where I knew I would not have power. Happily charged up to 3 devices at once and then when I got to somewhere with power could recharge it. When new, it certainly has the stated capacity of 12000mAH and charged phones and camera several times. Looks good as well.


OpenGL SuperBible: Comprehensive Tutorial and Reference
OpenGL SuperBible: Comprehensive Tutorial and Reference

Edition: Paperback
Price: £35.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for OpenGL 3.0 and later, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As it says, it is a comprehensive tutorial. It is only applicable to OpenGL 3.0 and ideally you need 3.3 or later to run the samples or even to make sense of them. For the older (simpler) fixed pipeline of 2.1 and earlier, get the 4th edition of this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Title of book not entirely accurate, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the title says versions 3.0 and 3.1, the majority of the book is only applicable to 2.1 and earlier. Most chapters start off by saying the OpenGL 3.0 removes all the functionality mentioned. If you are interested in using OpenGL 3.0, wait until the next edition comes. If you are interested in 2.1 and earlier, this is an excellent book - especially when used with the 'blue' book SuperBible else this is a bit heavy going.
