4.0 out of 5 stars Faithful if pedestrian, 10 April 2012
The production values of the series aren't great - rather faltering video effects and a general feeling of tight budgets but it's well-acted and faithful. The subtitles are absolutely appalling - literal, clunking, plonked into the image rather than underneath it and in places are just plain wrong. If you don't know the novel then you might draw blanks from a lot of the dialogue. Despite that, it works as a drama and is a good addition to the collection of anyone who loves the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little machine, 24 Jan 2010
As a starter HD camcorder this is perfect. Very light and compact. Nice-looking, easy to work. It has very basic functionality and is really just a point and shoot. It works with Quicktime .mov files. Manufacturers state battery life is 80 mins continuous. It takes Lithium Ion battery NP60 so easy to carry spares. Shoots at four different resolutions - 1080 (30fps), 720 (60fps), 720 (30fps), WVGA (60 fps). 16GB memory card gives 3.5hrs at 1080, 4.5hrs at 720 (60fps), 8.5hrs at 720 (30fps). Takes stills at 8MP and audio files. Functionality slightly reduced at 1080 but fine. Downsides? Not very good at low-lit interior or night shots but daytime exterior or well-lit interior is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quiet gem, 21 Jan 2009
Quiet Amsterdam is much more than a guidebook. It is a manifesto for careful attention and quiet contemplation. It gently reveals the city by appealing to our senses - asking the reader to imagine what the places in the book feel like - as well as providing beautiful photographs taken by the author. The images show the city and its surrounding parklands throughout the seasons and so the book emerges as a project undertaken over time, inviting the same from the reader and opening up the prospect of many future visits. A rare combination of practical guidebook and evocation of place.
