It is exactly what it states! good product with several compartments for extra battery / cards. I use it for a Canon Powershot 240 Ls which fits in easily. (I have taken the front string off as it has no use - as far as I am concerned) Quality is as good as any other camera bag used for a point and shoot unit. Comes with a strap you can hang around your neck - if you wish - or a Velcro opening fixture on the back which allows you to securely attach it to your belt. Opening is via the top which allows easy access when on the belt, with two zip fasteners which meet at the top - or you can simply zip one all the way around. That's it really. I would recommend this.

I can't give any techie info. All I will say is that it is very easy to set up and use - simply plug it in and the computer does the rest. This is the second unit I have purchased, the first proving to be very reliable - hence this purchase. Relatively quiet when in use and switches itself on and off with the computer so there is no having to "control" it. Good product!

This does exactly what you would expect of it. It is small and light - ideal for stairs, curtains etc. Very good suction for all usual household dirt that would be expected to be picked up by a unit of this size. Battery lasts for approx. 20 mins which is more than enough time to do all those small areas. Charging is simple - plug it in and wait for the green light to go out ! (usually about 3 hours + or -. Simply unclip the bottom of the unit to empty it -presto it's done! As they say "Sorted!"

This is a very good small torch. I cannot quote any technical stuff, but IT IS REALLY BRIGHT ! ! The ability to change the focus from a "spot" to a larger beam area is very useful, as is the option of full or reduced power. What more can you ask ? ? I have had other small led torches but this beats them all.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD PRODUCT, 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have had this approx. two weeks now and have taken it on holiday where I had a chance to get to know and use it in depth. I am an amateur photographer used to full and cropped frame SLR cameras, but wanted something a little smaller and lighter for such occasions as holidays etc. This meets the need beautifully. It took me a little time to familiarize myself with the various controls as my main equipment is NIKON. I criticize Canon for not providing a printed manual, thereby necessitating a very considerable amount of work in downloading and printing it myself -not good - hence 4 stars. True, they provide a full manual on the enclosed CD, but that's of no use when sitting by the pool trying to work out how to set the camera up!
The camera itself is fairly easy to use - I say "fairly" - it does require patience in getting to grips with how the menu works, but once you get into "their mode of thinking" the layout of each area begins to fall into place. The control wheel can be a bit fiddly, but once again it's a matter of getting used to it. The only other down side is really something that is common with most (if not all ) "point and shoot" cameras, trying to compose a scene / picture in any bright conditions e.g. sunlight, is impossible, as you simply cannot see anything on the screen. It's really a matter of point, shoot, then check and see what you've got!
Apart from these "down" points, the actual quality of the pictures is good. It only takes Jpegs, but the colour quality is good and the various scene options certainly help for a quick selection.
Overall I would recommend this as a quick, light and easy alternative to a more heavy and complicated SLR camera.

This cleaner is great for a quick clean around the house. It is light in weight and very effective for all normal surfaces. Obviously this cannot cope with long haired rugs or the like, but it is not meant for them. If you need something that picks up all normal household floor dirt and is easy to use, then this is it. Don't expect heavy duty usage, mine lasts for approx. 15 minutes at full power - but after 15 minutes vacuuming I've had enough anyway!. Emptying the unit is simplicity itself. Charging is easy - plug it in for approx. 4 -5 hours, but I simply plug in and leave it overnight - next morning it's ready to go again. It does "what it says on the tin" - but very efficiently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent instructional book in easy read and down to earth guidance, 18 Mar 2009
I have already purchased several books from Scott kelby and have found them to be a great help in learning. His manner is that of a friend who just answers the questions you pose with minimal "techie" stuff. OK his sense of humour is crankie but what the heck . . . . With this book he has teamed up with Matt Kloskowski, another very knowledgable and competant photographer, and between them they guide you through most (if not all) the various options available with Elements 7 in easy one step-at-a-time stages. I commend it to anyone who (like me) either can't be bothered to read through volumes of instructions to get to the item you want - or just likes the easy things in life. I guess if you have read this far you are keen to know about Elements 7 so what are you waiting for - buy it, you wont regret it. Go on - you know it makes sense. (Oh, by the way this isn't Skott Kelby using an alias!)

I ordered this card on Tuesday - it was delivered Thursday. I use it with my Nikon D60 Camera with no problems. Excellent value for money - would recommend, in fact I'm buying a second before they run out!!
