Uniross Smart Charger + 4 x AA 2700mAh Performance Batteries
Uniross Smart Charger + 4 x AA 2700mAh Performance Batteries

4.0 out of 5 stars Batteries good, charger ok, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love these batteries but the charger is very basic and is limited to charging either 2 or 4 batteries at a time. You only get a red light or a green light when charged. It's basic, but does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guns., 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have 2 of these and they are my favourite guns. I have other guns which are not as good as these. Good recycle times and consistent. Also, and don't put this to the test but they are well made. I had one fall from a light stand at 6 foot high and it just bounced. Not a crack or anything. It just carried on working.

I bought this a long time ago and it's still in everyday use. Having no problems with it, I purchased another one the same but bigger, a 2 TB.

I use these cards all the time. Never had any issues. I have though since purchased some faster ones as I shoot RAW.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok for beginners, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this a while ago. I also use Lightroom 5. I feel this is a limited program and suited to those who do basic editing. When purchasing this, I didn't read up on it enough. My problem with it was that it didn't support 16 bit files which had been exported from LR. So editing 8 bit files produced banding and pixelation. In the end I had to bite the bullet and purchase Photoshop CS6. But, for the new photographer wanting to get into processing images, this is ideal.

Sanyo Eneloop AA 8 Pack Batteries 2000mAh

4.0 out of 5 stars Liking these, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the fact that these batteries hold their charge longer than the others I use. They also slide into my pocket wizards and other battery compartments easier than the ones I currently use, so I assume the size is very slightly smaller in thickness. I have only used these on 1 photo shoot and found that they were hot when I removed them from my flash gun. I hadn't noticed this before with the previous batteries. Saying that, the rating at 2000mAh is not the same as those I usually use at 2700mAh, so I may have overworked them. I have since purchased another set. Compared with the previous batteries I use, these are more expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good charger, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this little charger and am considering buying another. I like the fact that the led's show the individual batteries charging. The battery chargers I'd been using before just had a red and green light so I never new how much charge they had in and how likely they would be in the charger for. Also, my previous chargers would only allow me to charge 2 or 4 batteries at a time. This one chargers batteries individually so as the batteries show they are charged, I can remove and replace with other batteries. On a photo shoot, I may take up to 6 flash guns requiring 4 x AA batteries each. For the 6 pocket wizards, I'll need 2 batteries each making a total of 36 AA batteries. That is before I include spares. So being able to charge 8 batteries at a time is really useful. Should I purchase a 16 cell charger? No. Why not? If it fails, I'm stuck. If I purchase 2 of these, in the unlikely event 1 fails, I still have the other to charge my batteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light Stand Review, 14 Feb. 2010
I purchased three of these lightweight lightstands from Bumperbargains and was pleased with them for the price. It was a pity that they couldn't combine p&p but they said this is Amazon policy and not theirs. These stands are lightweight and I wouldn't put a studio flash head such as a Bowens Monolite on one for fear of it collasping but they are ideal for using as a portable stand for your flash gun. The stands I received also came with a bag with a shoulder strap which is handy. Remember these are lightweight. Ideal for the stobist but not for the heavy studio flash heads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyday Use., 27 Dec. 2009

I use this printer every day. I do have another Epson which is now redundant because I like this one so much. I purchased it because of the facility of printed onto CD/DVD's.
