OP/TECH Bin/Op Strap QD for Compact Cameras and Bi&hellip by Op/Tech
5.0 out of 5 stars Just right, 17 Jun 2014
This strap is neither too long or too short, but allows a small compact camera (with two strap lugs) to hang from the users neck or cross wise from one shoulder to the opposite side of the body. The latter use may not be possible in broad people however. This I find more comfortable than the manufacturers concept of a wrist strap. A further advantage is the ability to push the camera to the full extent of the slightly elasticated strap and thus steady the camera in a triangle between ones neck and two hands. This is good for low light and video shooting.

However, it was an interesting, if not unique, exercise in story development; jumping around in time telling bits at a time and, I thought, ending in a foregone conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little drive, 22 Feb 2014
I bought this to speed up access to a lot of data and image files, I had on larger Tbyte drive. This is compact and fast and takes full advantage of the USB3 ports on a new desktop I bought last year. No complaints at all about this wee drive, particularly the small size and lack of need for a separate power supply.
