5.0 out of 5 stars top notch headphones for price, 23 Jan. 2014
Having owned and used the RF120 headphones for 5 years plus, all I can say is these wireless head phones rock for tv use, I use them everyday for at least 4 hours, mostly in the evening or late night tv watching, ok they are not the top off the tree for sound, but if I want that I will buy the RS180 which are on the cards as this old set will be moving to Spain shortly to our apartment. I'm still using the batteries that came with them, I'm guessing mine are the MK1 version, it is true that if the TV is too low or if I mute the amp then the auto turnout hiss can appear, but doesn't happen often, as for build quality, all I can say is they seem really good, I have used them as said for 5 years plus and look good as new. I bought a competitors set for Spain, but they are useless, lots of hiss and cut out even though I was only 2 metres from the base unit, the RF120 have no such problem, I can wear them upstairs in bed or out in the garden and still get great sound, though venturing more than 20 metres in the garden results in some loss of signal, overall 5 star for unfailing service for over 5 years to be honest could be closer to 8 years I have them, I will bet they will last many more years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bowen fit beauty dish, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great item for the price, had my 1st shoot with it and I really liked the quality of light it produced, fits my Bowens lights perfect, the fact that it comes with a grid and white diffuser is brilliant for the price, the grid snaps on and his held tight (no chance of it falling off on your subject) and the white diffuser cover is held on via elastic, Being silver it gives a slighter harder shadow than a white dish, but I knew that and I wanted that effect. Delivered before time stated, overall very happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful video lighting kit., 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall these will do a decent job for you, it will last longer if you don't have to disassemble, the stands are of an ok quality though light weight, the softboxes work as planned, the lighting heads build quality is what you would expect at this price point, the only thing that feels really cheap are the lamp holders, they feel like they could break easily if too much force is used when screwing in the bulbs, overall I'm happy for what I paid, they do the job for occasional use or left up, not so sure they would withstand constant setting up and taking down.

4.0 out of 5 stars VonShef Premium Vacuum Sealer, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Over all this unit seems to work great, I have only used it a couple of times, the main problem that a lot of people new to this type of equipment will have is figuring out how it works, the instruction booklet is rubbish as it tells you nothing about how the unit works, it only states on food prep. after 10 mins of trying I eventually figured it out,

So for those who have never had a system like this, after you put the bag into the machine, press down very hard on front left and right side, the lock will then engage,press the button on top to either vacuum and seal or just seal, to release after sealing has taken place there are 2 press buttons on left and right side panel near the front.

As said it works fine, but manufactures need to update how to work the machine.

2.0 out of 5 stars broken after second use, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The battery it self is good, lasts as long as the canon brand, but the locking device on this unit broke after second use, the plastic is just not strong enough, if you buy this, be very careful when changing the battery, if you work in the press or sports when fast battery change is needed I would give this one a pass

4.0 out of 5 stars great monitor, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice monitor, though a bit heavy once the battery is attached, at the price it would be hard to beat, I have used mine lots of times bolted to tripod and on steadicam, battery lasts for hours, I have found it too heavy to mount on shoulder rig, 3 points to attach to 1/4 inch thread though these points aren't the best quality, best to mount it from the bottom, for the price it's a decent monitor, canon 7d and 5d Mk3 will give full screen, the canon 5d mk2 won't fill the screen due to the cameras video output size

5.0 out of 5 stars super, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a super light source, very cheap to buy, decent build quality, have used it at weddings for the dancing, on camera or fitting 2 or 3 of these around the room really helps. pretty cheap to run and the handy colour gels helps balance for indoor use

4.0 out of 5 stars great value, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
would get 5* at it is very good value, bought it for the canon 600d, mainly because it came with 5 batteries which in fact made it free, worked very well when I used it on a few occasions, though it is cheaply made and nowhere near a good as Canons part. the battery tray is very cheap and the door latch feels very cheap, but for a free grip it works well and increases the camera size if you have big hands like me, note I sold the camera and grip within 6 months so don't know how much service it will deliver if used a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars light but sturdy, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As will all Giotto Tripods this one is very well made, not to heavy, can easily support DSLR cameras and small video camera's the head is pretty poor though, small and wouldn't really want to put a professional DSLR camera on it, but because I didn't need the head I had bought it for the legs only, 4 stars for the tripod, 3 for the head
