Good quality snap on lens cap, does its job well! For a very friendly price, compared to what the local vendors ask for a similar cap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugarman, 10 May 2013

This review is from: Cold Fact (Audio CD)
Rodriguez, from Detroit, found his audience, eventually, in far off South Africa, which the film 'Searching for Sugarman' is about. And this record, one of his very few, contains a lot of the tunes in the film, and then a few more. Technically perfect, complete with the lyrics in a little booklet - what more can you wish for?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Macro attachment that works!, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Raynox DCR-250 consists of two parts, the optics (with 43mm thread in its rear end, and 49mm in its front), and the quick-change adapter that makes it easy to use with lenses from 49 to 67mm (approximately). With a 49mm reverser ring (not supplied) you can fit the lens backwards on a 49mm thread lens, for even bigger magnification! So a number of uses, fairly rugged, and doesn't weigh a lot.

Otherwise, the quality is OK, if not as good as the Canon 250D close-up lenses, but these are only made in a few sizes, and have no quick-change adapter. And costlier as well, as you need one for each size of lens.

The battery holder for the K-30 is nothing fancy, but works well, but only after I had filed off a corner of the plastic (it didn't fit as it was).


Berlebach Ash Wood Mini Table Tripod with Levelling

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little macro/table-top tripod, 9 April 2013
This must be the sturdiest little tripod there is, ideal for macro work. Had to buy ours from Berlebach direct as Amazon wouldn't sell them to Sweden!

It has a built-in ball head, is superbly sturdy, yet light, due to its wooden legs. I have bigger Berlebach tripods as well, but this is so sweet!

The legs can be adjusted at multiple angles, to suit your needs, and various heights, up to about half a meter (1.7 ft).

It didn't come with a bag, that's the only con I can think of, so a superb tripod, at a very friendly price!

4.0 out of 5 stars Close to perfect, 31 Dec 2012
When Nikon introduced their MILC (Mirrorless, Inter-changeable Lens Camera) V1 for about a year ago I wasn't interested at all, but then I got one (long story) and I then slowly realized what it could do. For many of us bird photography enthusiasts, who has struggled with huge telephoto lenses (usually zooms up to 500mm focal lengths) on our Pentax, Canon, or Nikon DSLRs, this was a small guy that could take at least as good pictures as the very most just a generation back.

It has a totally silent shutter, a 10+MP sensor, in a camera that easily can make just a slightly old full format DSLR, say a D700, a run for the money - as has been proved with shots using exactly the same lens on both - the V1's sensor is much smaller, of course, so the view will not be the same, but the quality is about equal. In low light it isn't the best, again an effect of the small sensor packed with lots of photo-receptors. But it takes very good slow motion snips in decent resolution, is an excellent HD video camera (the D700 has no video at all), and so on.

What is not so good with it is the arrangement of the buttons, which is a bit weird, and very unique. All this have been fixed on the new version, called V2, that even have quite a lot more photo-receptors 14MP compared to 10 on the V1.

It was introduced for about $1000 with a 10-30 on, a year ago, and now it cost around $300 - a steal!

5.0 out of 5 stars My best camera, ever!, 31 Dec 2012
I hadn't planned to switch to Nikon, being an old Pentax man, loving the menu system, option settings, modes, and buttons on my K-5, but I wanted to upgrade, and Pentax was not forth-coming, so ...

Having previously bought a small selection of F Mount lenses for my V1, I started consider a Nikon FF (full frame) as an alternative. The K-5 has a nice sensor (same as the D7000) with a wide ISO range, and a big dynamic range. The D600 has an even better dynamic range, a nice ISO range (maybe not quite as high-reaching as the K-5, but with far less noise: the arrangement of buttons, the various settings, & the menus are maybe not as versatile as on the K-5, but the rest is just sweet. The D600 is essentially a camera with a FF 24MP CMOS sensor, but with the D7000 electronics, thus a simplified, lighter, and, maybe, slightly more user-friendly full frame, for the enthusiast, like me.

The main reason for me was to be able to take better wide shots, with a camera weighing roughly what the K-5 weighs (the D600 without batteries is very close to in weight to the K-5 with batteries). For long shots I use the Nikon V1 with the FT1 adapter and a 70-300 VR zoom which on the D600 would equal a range of 190-810mm. I would need a humongous lens on the D600 to equal that!

I use my D600 in the wide to short tele range where it is simply superb. As long as you use fairly open apertures (refraction sets in early) it is a sweet camera, very sharp, and with a fast auto-focusing. With small apertures (say 8, and higher) the photos tend to be a little soft, but other than that, no problems of any kind.

Some, like me, have had issues with dust - probably emanating from the shutter - other than that I have not heard of anything negative from anyone. The D600 is not alone when it comes to dust problems, far from it (Pentax and Canon have had similar problems with a few of their models), but it is an irritant for some.

A Midnight Clear is without doubt a one-of-a-kind movie, unlike any other. Technically the bluray is perfect, and the film is well told, with grand acting from all actors. Not the mst profound movie I've seen, but still impressive. More details here: [...]

This adapter is functional, if not of a higher refinement, like the Novoflex series, but that is far more expensive.
