2.0 out of 5 stars Bird brained !, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sandringham Garden Bird Feeder
I have just purchased this feeder based,I must confess, on the product image, and in truth it is a very attractive ornament. The sales blurb stated that it could be mounted on the pole provided and could therefore be moved to different locations as the mood took one. Great! I can move it when I mow the lawn. Mine is hanging in a tree... I doubt that it will last long as the base is made of cheep ply and the rest is painted with water based emulsion. Now the pole..oh the pole, what a wonderful piece of engineering that was. It came in four sections which screw together,except mine didn't, well they did but in the shape of a Donkeys leg and just at the right level for even the laziest of cats to lean against it on one elbow ( do cats have elbows) and wait for lunch to flutter in. Now I want you to concentrate and think hard on what shape the end of the pole should be to allow it to be push it into, oh let's say a lawn. A triangle, arrow head. spike maybe even a simple blade. No no they welded a solid ball on the end so that you need arms like popeye to pound it into the earth, and that's why my one is hanging in a tree. It takes a real bird brain to design something like this and even a bigger one to buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance..., 20 Dec 2012

Came in a nice looking box and the watch looked well made and very stylish.... Shame it didn't work. The winder did nothing other than to pop out and it's only use was to wind the hand in one direction only, a pain to wind through twelve hours to set the correct time which had to be done every time you took it off because it stopped if not moved for a few minutes. Avoid

4.0 out of 5 stars Travel light !, 9 Oct 2006
The title may be a bit misleading to those who have used this lens as it is a tad on the heavey side. This is mainly due to the excellent build quality, as one would expect with a Canon L series lens. One of it's main advantages is that it allows you to leave some of your other lenses at home.Less lens changes means less dust! The 28-300 covers most of the situation encountered on a shoot allowing shots from near macro to landscape and most in between.Whilst this is not a particularly fast lens the clarity throughout the zoom range is impressive with little vignetting at the extreme end.The zoom on this lens is of the bellows type which take a trip or two to get use to but once you are it is easy to use.A useful feature is the tightening ring which eliminates zoom creep when pointing up or down.Equipped with two stabilizer modes, one for normal photography and a second which senses the direction of movement,ideal for tracking a moving subject,makes this a versitile piece of kit.Canon say that the lens affords more scope for hand held shot, which is true,however I found the weight a problem on a long shoot which was solved by the use of a monopod.I have enjoyed using the 28-300 safe in the knowledge that is I get everything right,from settings to removing the lens cap,the results will be impressive.If like me you like to travel light and hate lens changes in the field then this fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Click..A breath of fresh air, 26 Sep 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital SLR Handbook (Paperback)
If,like me,you have just jumped the fence into the digital world and purchased a DSLR you will, in all probability, do as I did and purchase books on the subject. Most of these will be aimed at those with some previous experience and written in a language which has the ability to induce coma or at best reduce you to the fetal position whilst whinning slowly.Well worry no longer. What a breath of fresh air this book is. Written in a no nonsense and techno babble free style it is packed with sound advice from one of the top pro photographers.I found myself saying "Ahh that's what it means" on a number of occasions.If you want to become a tech head then this is not the book for you. If you want a book which says "try this and this is how to do it" then buy this and keep it in your camara bag.
