The app itself is very naughty getting permissions for almost everything associated by your device.. it also doesn't even login on my phone. It gets stuck on the spinning login wheel, seemingly forever.. not recommended for fire phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very solid macro lens., 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you buy this and bung on a couple of extension tubes, you can get some very tasty macro shots. With a 35mm equ. of a 90mm f4.2 it seems to serve this purpose well. It's also quick to focus if you use autofocus, but as always, it will hunt in lower lighting conditions.

I work as a photographer for a bespoke jewellery company and I use this lens as my daily driver for all of my ring shots and I think this is where the lens shines. Throw this onto an a6000 and it is leaps and bounds away from anything in this price bracket. A decent option for a photographer who can't afford an a7r with a Canon 100mm f2.8 macro.

The lens also works well for intimate headshots, getting accurate colours and sharpness.

Although this is still my favourite autofocus lens for the e-mount, it does have some quirks. The floating lens element inside the lens will wobble back and forth when the lens is off, which will make you think that it is broken when you get it out of the box. Also, when manual focusing on subjects, this floating element will sometimes make a whirring noise (the same noise as it makes when it is autofocusing) until the focus is changed. This doesn't affect performance and is a minor gripe as it stops the moment the focus is changed.

All being said. If you're doing macro, buy this lens!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fit, but it's too damn slippery.., 24 Jan. 2015

It may get more grippy after some wear and tear, but applying some stickers to the edges of the case sorted out the problem for me at least. It still serves a purpose and isn't the worst phone case i've owned.

Very nice shoes, however I can see the buckles wearing out quickly. They also didn't give me blisters till about two weeks of wear which is odd, but I suppose that's spomethimng to expect with new shoes. They were just a tad narrows towards the toe for me because I have wide feet and a high arch. They are comfortable when on though and can even be slipped on and off without unbuckling if you really want to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and does the job, 13 Jan. 2015

Very robust and arrived quickly. The ball does make a big difference compared to the mesh lid found on other types of these bottles. The lid shuts tight and doesn't spill when being shaken as well which is great. I have no fear of this spilling in my bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great compact camera case, 13 July 2014
Nice and compact, this case holds the gear i need for work. It can fit a small dslr with a lens, a large zoom lens and the generic kit lens with space for accessories to fit in the gaps between. I bought this case because it was long enough for me to have my zoom lens attached and still fit in the case (this is surprisingly hard to find in a small case). It has held up to daily use well and it appears to be waterproof although i do studio work and not wildlife shots so i don't really take my case out in much more than typical British rain.

A good buy if you're after a compact case, but check the internal dimensions to see if your gear will fit inside.

Now you can have a comfortable strap that matches your ironic personality.

Warning! this item can only be attached to a camera that has Instagram filters or it will catch fire.

This ring descended from the heavens through my letterbox and like the first time I crammed large amounts of ice cream into my gob, I was not disappointed.

It's perfect for looking at really tiny things so I would heartily recommend it to you and not anyone else because you definitely need to examine your tiny bits every now and again.

Like a man covered in lube being thrown down a slip'n'slide, photos glide between my camera and smart devices. I would heartily recommend it to anyone (the card, not lubing yourself up for some slip'n'slide fun)

5.0 out of 5 stars This hat is great., 16 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Came very quickly and is brilliant quality. Been used as part of fancy dress and it's only taken a year to be damaged as the hat lost an eye a few weeks ago. Everyone really loved the novelty factor, but it's better for fancy dress rather than an every day hat. Comes highly recommended.
