5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 4 April 2012
The charger is compatible with my Nikon D90 battery. I lost the original during a previous travel.
The Lemix ENEL3 is smaller then the original Nikon charger, as it fits directly into the wall plug instead of having a separate power cable. Two different plugs for EU and UK can be slided-in, making it even better than the original. A small light indicates charing/charged state.

For the current price, the item is a bargain.

The Elements of Java(TM) Style (SIGS Reference Library)
The Elements of Java(TM) Style (SIGS Reference Library)
by Allan Vermeulen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Distilled pearls of Java idiom. Highly recommended., 17 Dec 2004
The book collects 108 conventions Java developers should conform to, although many recommendations are valid for any imperative language.
Rules vary from cosmetic advices (Formatting, Naming and Documentation Conventions) to substantial programming aspects (General, Programming and Packaging Conventions). Suggestion are explained along with the principles they stem from, providing a comprehensive etiquette based on solid motivations. Practical Note/Tip/Caution indicators improve reading and the ability to spot most common pitfalls.
All in all, this short manual is about an efficient usage of the language. It is not intended to explain its grammar (syntax), nor vocabulary (API), but focuses on the correct everyday practice to gain fluency in Java idiom.
I'm fond of rule-based books like the Effective series (Effective C++, STL, Java), as they provide an almanac of insightful answers to recurrent questions otherwise difficult to collect. They are inestimable companions whenever a team grows and an authoritative voice is needed. Even the size - a pocketbook of roughly a hundred pages - is ideal to introduce coding discipline and vital principles (Common Reuse, Abstraction, Stability) without being threatening.
