5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 18 Jun. 2014
I spent around 2 weeks trawling every review that I could find on the internet, comparing the Pentax K50 along with a Canon 700D and the Nikon d5300. It was such a struggle to make the final choice, all get excellent reviews, but the K50 won hands down. I bought the K50 in red with the 18-135 lens and am very impressed. Image quality is superb, and a viewfinder to die for. And colours are so true to life. Exposure has been spot on in a variety of daytime lighting conditions. At this price, this is just a brilliant piece of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as an original bettery, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have purchased from this manufacturer before (for a Panasonic FZ200) and found that battery, and this one for my Fuji X-M1 to be as good as an original brand at a fraction of the cost. Charges via the original battery charger and works perfectly in the camera, no hesitation in recommending this brand.


Sycamore Row
Sycamore Row
by John Grisham
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Not his best, 23 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Sycamore Row (Hardcover)
I really struggled with this one, and once over half way through I just couldn't find the inclination to pick the book up. Three longs months and I finally finished it. Not up to Grisham's usual standard, by far not gripping enough, and the ending after the trial was over was a huge let down and kind of defeated the whole point of the trial. Come on John Grisham, you can do a lot better than this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly written, 23 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Winter (Paperback)
I've made 3 attempts to read this book, and failed, I just can't get in to it. The initial scene-setting involving the old man on a ship off the coast of Iceland is good enough, but the book goes downhill rapidly after that. You don't feel that you know the characters at all. I'm used to quality writers like John Grisham, Stuart MacBride, Peter James etc etc, but this initial novel from David Mark disappoints.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the Panasonic original, 8 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm more than pleased with this battery. Yes, like some, I do get the battery status symbol when using this battery. It charges perfectly in the battery charger that came with my FZ200. Took it for a test run in London today and fired off 140 shots and three short video clips and the status was still showing the full symbol. Superb for just £16 and easily as good as the original Panasonic battery that came with my camera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality photos but let down by video and exposure issues, 29 Mar. 2013
I couldn't buy this from Amazon as they were out of stock, so got it elsewhere for the same price. Used it today for the first time, superb photos, easily can use ISO800 without any noise. But some normal daylight conditions fooled the camera into underexposing on P setting, though fully auto handled the same location better. But the video is very poor, my old Sony HX9V compact does superb video, and for the expensive price that this camera is you'd have thought the video would at least match the HX9V. 95% of the images I took today were perfect, colours spot on, just a shame about those that were underexposed. If you dont want to lug a DSLR about with you, but want DSLR quality images then the larger sensor in this does the job perfectly. But the need to take a camcorder with you as well due to the poor video kind of defeats the object.

A collection of films about the London icon, the Routemaster Bus. A couple of the films I have seen before, but the whole collection are well worth watching. Superb is an understatement, BUY IT!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, Tame and a waste of money, 21 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I couldn't believe how tame and boring this book is. Nothing really happens, nothing to get your teeth in to at all. Just a ramble about an English couple on holiday, with a twist at the end. I was very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a beauty!, 23 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simply superb. I bought the limited edition white version (very attractive). Straight from the box, charged the camera and away I went with perfect results. Idiot proof! Perfect exposed video, pin sharp, and a marvellous zoom. I cant comment on playback via a television as I download onto my PC and then upload to YouTube, but I'm very impressed with this. Highly recommended and excellent value at this price.
