This camera has now been used for years and probably outdated by now. It has taken thousands of photographs without any problems.. It has a viewfinder, so it can be used in bright sunlight. It was well worth purchasing because it is still in use

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used these lamps a lot, but what was not made clear when I ordered the lamps was that these needed special batteries and not the AA type so check this out when ordering. The newer version is different to the older version and has plastic barn doors, instead of metal. The light is balanced to match daylight (56k) so it can be used with the cameras daylight setting. It also has other filters, to match tungsten light (32k) The barn doors allow control over how the light is directed, but at the edges of the cutoff; the light is stepped. this cutoff line matches the rows of LEDs. This is typical of a multi LED lamp. The stands it came with did not fit the lamps because there was no threaded fixing, so I had to drill these out and thread them myself. For me it was easier than returning them! These battery lamps are ideal for location work, they are reasonablly robust and they do the job, but need a large battery and fully charged spares! a single lamp can be mounted on top of the camera. or two lamps on a bar, either side of the camera. When two lamps are used; use the diffusers and set one lamp at a lower setting to avoid double shadows. More fun can be obtained by mounting the lamps on the stands in a darken room and using coloured gells. (purchased separately) Light from under the chin for spine chilling effects! The use of 2 lamps is ideal for table top photography. use bits of card to block or reflect light. Boot fairs are a good source for finding bits to photograph.

5.0 out of 5 stars because she is using it like a dog lead, 5 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tobar Trotting Pony (Toy)
My four and a half year old grand-daughter took this for walkies all around the house, so it is worth investing in rechargable batteries!
It was on her wish list..... The build quality is robust, but I can see problems with the power lead, because she is using it like a dog lead, to pull it back and swing it around! The sounds it makes is quite acceptable, even after a few hours.... Our little one has voted it her favourite toy.

This works very well, it is reasonably robuse and uses a magnet as a quick release to attach rear viewer to the mount. The mount is screw fitted to the underside of the camera, using the tripod threaded fixing hole. I would like a locking device on the quick release because in a hetic moment of filming the viewer could come loose, because as the saying goes.... if it can fall off, it will........ on the plus side it has a lot of adjustment, so it should fit other cameras at a later date. I am well pleased with the viewer.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOVO VXR300 HD Mike, 5 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This microphone overcomes the problem of the built in microphone finger noise, that is generated on the cameras body, when the lens is focused during recording. This microphone sits on top of the camera but needs to be set up. I set this microphone up carefully using the manual record levels on my camera; because as with all equipment when using the the auto level setting the background noise level gain in quite moments is unaceptable. YOU must remember to switch THE MIKE ON when recording... The quality of the stereo sound is brillant for its cost. The fitting of the battery is fiddly hence lots of spare rubber bands! The build quality is light but reasonable robust. I am well pleased with this piece of equipment.

The product is practical in that it works; the case build quality lacks the solid feel of other products, but treated gently should give a good service. It worked first time it was plugged into the TV; using the MDMI outlet and a good quality cable. I am still having fun sorting out the picture size on the TV, from super wide screen to normal 16x9 ratio. The picture quality looked very good! The back of the player has a lot of outlets, which will allow connection to older equipment. The front has SD and USB inputs. Only time will tell as to how good it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Classroom in a book, 9 Nov. 2010
I am working my way through this book page by page, because Lightroom is a powerful program and a lot of study is required to learn how to use it properly. What I have found is lightroom is complex to understand, and to make sense you have to re-read the page over and over again.
The information is there, therefore it is my understanding of what is written, that takes the time (I am 70 years old) and by completing each task everything sinks in, and to the point you can complete each chapter's task with out the aid of the book.
Each chapter is written in the same way, and as I have progressed through each chapter so the learning has become easier. I still have to finish all the projects in the book, but I can now answer questions fired at me by club members about using Lightroom, so the book must be pretty good...
PS Carefully plan your filing method names, Category, Main headers and sub headers etc and put all your photos on one disk, and don't move them and your life will be very easy. I double down load, one set goes into archive on another disk, and one set I edit and grade in Lightroom.
When you consider that a 10 week 2 hour per lesson 'Adult Education' course on Lightroom could well cost over 150 UK pounds: The book is well worth the money: John, retired photography tutor.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Newcomers Guide to Model Railways, 23 Aug. 2010
The book consists of 144 pages. The first 5 chapters (54 pages) are informative but condensed and details the construction of a large `L' girder fixed to the wall type layout, the laying of the track etc. But has very little information on the visual appearance of the buildings, landscape etc.

Chapters 6 to 10 (75 pages) are extremely informative and deals with the electrical side of the layout, including DCC wiring for both track and signals. The remaining pages include the Index, Glossary etc.

Summary: I feel that since the book is aimed at the newcomer, a simpler layout to construct should have been included, because the method of construction used for the layout shown within the book is really only suitable for the advanced modeller. For me it is the electrical chapters that make this book worthwhile, and therefore this book will join my small but selected library of model railway books that I feel are worth collecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars FREECOM HARD DRIVES, 24 Dec. 2009
I have purchased a number of these external hard drives for my own use and found them to be excellent in both build quality and performance. The reason why I chose this paticular make is that they are used at the school in which I teach, and these drives have survived rough useage. John
