Buddha in Blue Jeans: An Extremely Short Zen Guide to Sitting Quietly and Being Buddha
Buddha in Blue Jeans: An Extremely Short Zen Guide to Sitting Quietly and Being Buddha
Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a book ..., 24 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... but potentially more valuable than a 500 page tome. If you think about and feel every sentence, it can work for you. If you are a slow reader or dyslexic it is ideal. Just sit.

5.0 out of 5 stars rubber sealing ring is excellent. Recommended, 6 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these originally for my "always in the pocket" X100T, where one is all but essential for decent ergonomics (big hands, small camera). In the meantime I have found they also improve touch on the other rangefinders. Well made and the attention to detail with the small, rubber sealing ring is excellent. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought this set to be able to fit a protector ..., 6 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this set to be able to fit a protector filter instead of the lens cap when travelling or the hood for extreme lighting conditions. Does the job. £12 instead of £50 for the original Fuji item? No brainer!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Protector filter makes a very good impression so far, 6 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Protector filter makes a very good impression so far. Even fingerprints can be removed with a dry lens cleaning microfibre cloth without leaving any residue. Good for travelling without lens cleaning fluid. The antistatic attribute seems OK, although not all materials are "rejected". A good buy at a fair price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Of its time, 22 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The "book" or judging by the length -the article- is very much of its time. The concept of adjusting the length of the working day to produce just enough to make the workforce comfortable and at the same time fully employed, does not become more realistic by constant repetition. Neither does history support the success of communist idealism, although Russell concedes it strengthened rather than abolished the class system - if by another name. It is still worth the read if you are interested in a narrow, historical view of philosophy or the author's enthusiastic style.


Henri Cartier-Bresson: Photographer

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait!, 7 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I managed to get this book used from amazon at the third attempt, the previous two sellers having reneged on the deal after payment had been taken (I did get the money back later), probably having realised the true value of the book.
Having said that the book was worth the wait of around two years. Biased I may be as a follower of HCB's work but both the production and selection of pictures are excellent. Most I have seen/own before but there are still some 'new' gems and the quality of the printing has not suffered in this older, used version. Recommended if you can get it for less than the ridiculous prices being asked by some sellers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Colour problem, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivery fine and quality is O.K. The only grumble is that the colour is clearly OGD rather than sandy desert camouflage and bears no resemblance to the photo (my screen is calibrated).


Nikon F4, F4S, F4E and F3: International Users' Guide
Nikon F4, F4S, F4E and F3: International Users' Guide
by Heiner Henninges
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful addition to the standard manual, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used product received as described. Provides some interesting additions to the original Nikon manual (which itself is much better than the Nikon manuals shipped with todays high-end cameras), including lenses and attachments which were available at the time the F4 was originally on the market. Unfortunately only a cursory description of the MF-23 back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take your time, wind down, enjoy ..., 13 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb. The title is mirrored beautifully in the slow pace of the film and Saul's speech. If you are running on high octane you may be impatient during the early sections but as you wind down you will relax and find yourself smiling with this lovely gentle-man.
On the other hand, the pictures are inspirational and will recharge your photographer batteries. Watch at least twice and please do not miss the additional material - the music section with the slide-show of pictures is a delight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paper does have advantages ..., 13 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Content and writing are good but the platform is not ideal for an instruction book of this type. Paper would be better in this case than juggling camera, glass and Mac or reader while on location. Fine for reading at home but that is not the point.
