2.0 out of 5 stars Reliability issue, 8 Sep 2011
Worked fine (1 year or so) till it suddenly and quietly died.Ouch!
The unit is still powered but it's no longer recognized as a drive unit.Tried it on many(5) different pcs so it's either dead or to expensive to recover.
I won't buy again from this brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK, 8 Sep 2011
SImply put:
if you're a visual art professional YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK.
It's one of the most clear,complete and insightful analysis on animation and gesture drawing.
Each chapter is pretty short and easy to read and there's plenty of examples and references from amazing Disney artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars really useful tool, 14 May 2010
If you're looking for the magic book with thousand answer this will not work for you
This book has a lot of useful resources but you must read and ADAPT them to your situation:
as a freshly" baked" freelancer fantasy illustrator living in UK in 2010 it won't be useful to know the average pricing that a medical illustrator used to charge in the 2007 in USA for scientific anatomy book cover,
BUT, as a newbie freelancer nevertheless it will help me to know what things to check when reading a contract or some ethic guidelines or industry standard practise
As a general tip, i'd say the only thing i'm concerned about it's that this book express the opinion of the graphic artist guild,so mind it,it's not the bible of absolute truth(i doubt that such a book exist anyway)
It's a tool,powerful and dangerous(trying to think what should happens if you'd decide to use their pricing guidelines to set up your fees,copying them straight away), but a really helpful one,especially for a newbie(like me),and,added value,it's explained quite clearly(i'm fine with english but contract language is difficult and tricky all over the world)
So, buy it but don't forget to use your common sense while reading

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 30 Mar 2010
These earphones are just working fine,one lesser flaw(as pointed out form other users)is that the sound perception change slighlty depending on how you set them in your ears problem solved encapsulating earphones in the sockets provided Not the the bas.boost you might have with more expensive model but a good product as long as i know I have to check time reliability

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value!, 30 Mar 2010
I've bought this one with the Canon a480 powershot(plus a sd 4gb card and a usb card reader) and i wasn't expecting nothing fancy
Lucky for me i was wrong: this is a really well-made camera case,toughful and nice designed with two pockets
A really good deal

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite expensive item,ONly if you're a pro, 30 Mar 2010
Unless you're a pro in need of pen tips replacements,leave this ,because it comes with a lot of useless stuff(basically all the other rep parts)
Trying to be serious,who ever consumed by use the rubber pen-wrapper?or destroyed the button?
Of course half of this stuff COULD be useful,but unlikely it will happens

5.0 out of 5 stars Great camera, 30 Mar 2010
Canon is a well renowned brand and this camera is another proof of that
Image quality and color managment are outstanding(especially if compared to the price)
I'm a freelance illustrator and i use the camera to take references for the most,so i'm not talking like a photo pro(which should choose another camera anyway),but for the price i got it(plus a camera case,a new 4gb sd card,a dn a usb card reader)it'sabsolutely WORTHING(not sure a grammar proof english) the deal
Well Done Canon and Amazon
