Scott Kelby's Digital Photography Boxed Set: v. 1, 2 & 3

Edition: Paperback
Price: £43.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Books, Well Written and Very Informative, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this set as I had recently purchased my first dSLR and was looking for tips on how to take better pictures.
It says in the blurb that some people may not like the writing style of the author, but I found it very easy to read and the tips are ideal for anyone from beginner to moderately-experienced photographer (I wouldn't expect the experienced pros to need the tips, but if it's outside their field of expertise then they may find it useful).

Kelby doesn't bother with the intricate details of things like the reason this particular f-stop gives this result or how the flash settings affect the sensor, and as a beginner you really don't need to know. What it does is show you an end result and tell you which mode to use and which buttons to press to recreate it.

Highly recommended, and a great price too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Films, Great Set, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're a fan of the car racing/modified cars/exaggerated chase scene type films, these are the epitome. If you're looking at this, the chances are you've either seen one of the FF series or you're buying for someone who has. Blu Ray just makes the visuals that much better and doesn't add a lot to the price (I think when I bought it, the Blu Ray set was actually cheaper than the DVDs) and it's a great way to waste a few hours.

If you like Fast and Furious, buy the box set, although there may well be a new one with the 6th film available now. Check the prices though, it might be cheaper to buy this and FF6 separately than to buy the combined boxset ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought Part 1 was good (having not really paid all that much attention when I bought that, and not realising it was a 2-part album), but this 2nd part beats it hands down. Unlike most other albums, there are no filler tracks, every track is good enough to be a single in its own right.
There's even a hidden bonus track at the end, hence the 11-minute play-time of the final track - there's about a 30-second gap after the listed track then the bonus starts.

My only qualm is that this follows the recent trend of being released in 2 parts to maximise income, but putting that aside (or if you get the album on a deal or just buy the combined album) this is a definite purchase. There is a mix of styles on here but it's fairly easy-listening and I've had it on repeat in the car since it came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first camera, 11 Jun. 2004
I bought this camera based on the resolution (5 megapixels) and the price. No other 5mp cameras are anywhere near this cheap, yet this camera is great, whether it be a first second or third camera. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested.
I looked in an old Dixons catalogue and found it for £400!!
BARGAIN!
