5.0 out of 5 stars Good compact pocket size camera that takes reasonable quality images ..., 23 Jun. 2016
Good compact pocket size camera that takes reasonable quality images at an affordable price (£129.99). The image quality naturally does not compare to it's larger and vastly more expensive DSLR big brothers . . . you get what you pay for! That said, for general everyday use the image quality are more than adequate for printing snaps and uploading onto the web i.e. Facebook and alike. These images are straight out of the camera when set to only 4M picture size.

PROS:
It really is compact.
Feels solid.
Easy to set up and use.
Auto mode enables easy point and shoot use.
Battery charge time in camera quick.
Image quality at wide angle is OK.
Image quality at full zoom is excellent.
Fast accurate auto focusing.
Good optical stability (VR) system.

CONS:
Hard to hold without accidentally selecting video.
Bright areas in images tend to be saturated.
Very slow exposure speed in low light conditions.
Screen is difficult to view in bright sun light.

Rok-Strap Dog Lead 3-in-1 Stretch Lead, M, Black/ Orange
Rok-Strap Dog Lead 3-in-1 Stretch Lead, M, Black/ Orange
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very practical and secure lead., 27 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great secure easy to use lead for walking my 30 Kg Lurcher dog. I like the fact that the lead is forgiving to a small degree in not hurting the dog if he suddenly lunges as the stretch element works very well and dampens the any sudden jerk on his neck. Also having an additional handle near the collar end is ideal for use in close walking mode nearby traffic or other dogs etc where more control is required. The lead is certainly heavy duty with a heavy duty hook attachment and looks as if it will last.

2.0 out of 5 stars Most uncomfortable walking shoe., 27 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointed with this particular pair of walking shoes as they really are the most uncomfortable footwear I've ever worn whilst out walking the dog etc. I was looking to spend a reasonable amount to purchase a high quality shoe and brought these online. They absolutely cripple my toes if laced up normally and only by tying the laces really tight can I help my feet from being squashed up towards the toe end, but needless to say in that configuration my feet then hurt! I've tried wearing them now for a couple of months and they continue to feel like a tourniquet . . . Not a good buy. I'll not purchase Merrell again.

I hate to say it but the various species birds that feed on my feeders daily are not that keen on this particular mix and much prefer other No Mess seed mixes that I also use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Item not as described - Possible fake!, 20 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item not as described . . . I received an item that clearly states on the box that the heads should be changed every 12 months and NOT every 2 years as clearly shown on the advertisement image and as stated on the product description. It's a fake replacement head maybe!

1.0 out of 5 stars Would not buy Philips rechargable AAA batteries again!, 13 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased these rechargeable AAA batteries to go in my telephone handsets at home. I'm having to replace them some 13 months on as they no longer hold enough charge to enable the handsets to be used for more than a few minutes. Terrible short life given that they have not had that much heavy use! Would not buy Philips batteries again!
