Canon Remote Control RC-06
Canon Remote Control RC-06
Offered by UK Online Bargain
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and useful, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This remote control will work with a wide range of Canon cameras. Small and simple to use, it obviates the need to use the self-timer as a way of taking a long-exposure without camera shake. It is also useful in taking photos with the photographer included, as the diminutive size and inconspicuous colour make it less likely to be noticed in the photographer's hand.

Inexpensibe and highly recommended.


Quest Travel Steam Iron, 750 Watt
Quest Travel Steam Iron, 750 Watt
Offered by New Deal of The Day
Price: £9.46

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact and versatile, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This travel iron offers a lot for the money. Nicely designed and easy to use, it folds for travelling. It also looks quite stylish, if that matters!

I purchased it for use in conjunction with Minke Travel Ironing Pad (70cm x 60cm), and the two make good companions.

Why more for a well-known brand, when this will do just as well?


Interdesign Suction Bath Caddy, Clear
Interdesign Suction Bath Caddy, Clear
Price: £4.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and practical, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is another excellent product from Interdesign. Although marketed as a bath caddy, mine is attached to the tiles above the washbasin, where it sticks well (the surface must be dry, clean and smooth).

Capacity is reasonable, and more than enough for things like bottles of contact lens cleaning and wetting fluids, toothpaste, or deodorants. I have not tried heavy bottles.


Travel Ironing Pad (70cm x 60cm)
Travel Ironing Pad (70cm x 60cm)

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical travel ironing pad, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Travel Ironing Pad (70cm x 60cm)
There is not a lot to say about this travel ironing pad, except that it serves its purpose adequately and folds easily for transport.

I purchased it for use in conjunction with Quest Travel Steam Iron, 750 Watt, and the two make good companions.

Recommended if you need to iron on the move. It would also be useful in small dwellings that lack the space for a full-sized ironing board.


TRU VIRTU Wallet MONEY & CARDS - Silver Arrow
TRU VIRTU Wallet MONEY & CARDS - Silver Arrow
Price: £28.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart but not totally practical, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A smart and stylish way to carry your banknotes, this wallet is not as practical as a traditional leather one: its capacity and ease of access to the contents are strictly limited. In particular, selecting a specific credit card is rather fiddly.

So it might be better employed as a secondary wallet, for travel perhaps. It definitely looks the part and is very lightweght, so I am giving it four stars.


The Knight Who Saved England: William Marshal and the French Invasion, 1217 (General Military)
The Knight Who Saved England: William Marshal and the French Invasion, 1217 (General Military)
Price: £6.17

4.0 out of 5 stars A larger than life figure from a turbulent and fascinating time, 7 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike many historical figures, William Marshal is not exactly a household name. Yet he deserves to be much better known, most notably (although not solely) as commander of the royalist forces at the Battle of Lincoln in 1217, one of the most decisive (if not very famous) battles in English history.

Of fairly humble origins, William's great prowess as a knight (and marriage into nobility) helped him to become one of the most powerful men in the country. As a statesman, he seems to have pursued moderate and pragmatic policies in what were by today's standards extraordinarily violent times, and this willingness to seek compromise makes him easier to relate to.


e-cloth - Washing Up Pad
e-cloth - Washing Up Pad
Offered by Best4Deals
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and works well, 7 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Modestly priced and durable, this e-cloth take on the traditional scrubber should help keep your pans pristine for quite a while. The soft (yellow) side can also be used on any dishes that need a bit of extra cleaning.


Canon ER-E1 Hand Strap for EOS M Black
Canon ER-E1 Hand Strap for EOS M Black
Price: £19.49

4.0 out of 5 stars A very "handy" accessory for the EOS M, 7 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have a Canon EOS M with the 22mm "pancake" lens, you might not want to carry such a diminutive package around your neck. This strap offers an alternative, allowing you to keep the camera securely hanging from your wrist and ready for action.

As with most Canon accessories, this is not particularly cheap, but is of high enough quality. And of course it fits the special lug on the EOS M.


Leon Fleisher plays Beethoven and Brahms Concertos
Leon Fleisher plays Beethoven and Brahms Concertos
Price: £26.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain Beethoven and Brahms, 7 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A welcome re-issue, these classic performances deserve a place in the library of every serious collector of piano concertos. The remastered sound is full and rich, with the quality of the recordings belying their age.

This modestly-sized box set would be perfect for those wanting to acquire some of the greatest piano works of all time. And the price is even more modest, offering first-rate performances for not much more than a tenner. A fantastic bargain.


100 Pack Of White Disposable Overshoes For Shoes & Boots To Protect Carpets & Floors - Comes with TCH Anti-Bacterial Pen!
100 Pack Of White Disposable Overshoes For Shoes & Boots To Protect Carpets & Floors - Comes with TCH Anti-Bacterial Pen!
Offered by The Chemical Hut
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Only adequate, 7 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you only want overshoes for very light indoor use, these should suffice. However, they are quite thin and not of especially high quality. Scan WWDISSHOE Disposable Overshoes (20 Pairs), also available from Amazon, are much more durable and hence better suited to repeated use.
