5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition, 16 Jan. 2017

Perfect added protection for my phone and makes it easy to handle without the risk of it slipping out of my hands. All the buttons and sockets are perfectly usable with the case on too, so it doesn't affect charging etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Perfect size but the material is way too thin to offer any real protection, 16 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The right size for a 2nd generation Galaxy A3 phone (mine has a back cover on too), but the material is just way too thin (about 1mm) to give it any real protection. It's not proper neoprene either but more like a very thin spongy material that compresses really easily. I'm currently using an old proper neoprene case (3mm material) that's about half a cm too short, and had hoped that this Shocksock case would be an ideal replacement. But I'm returning it for a refund and will carry on using my old case which gives the screen far better protection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware - Not the size stated, 23 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heavy Duty Tape Dispenser (Misc.)
I wasn't expecting a top quality, heavyweight tape dispenser at the price it's sold for. However, I was expecting it to match the description and be for 50mm wide rolls of tape........but it isn't. It's a 25mm wide dispenser!

5.0 out of 5 stars Performance just as good as Canon E6, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased two of these in mid October 2014 and been alternating them since then with the Canon own-make battery. Over two and half months fairly heavy use (I use live view for composing most shots, and do a lot of long-exposure images), I've noticed no difference in performance between these and the Canon battery. Time will tell if they have the same lifespan of the Canon ones but so far I'm impressed with them. No problems charging them in the Canon charger or my 70D recognising them. Purchased when they were on offer at £26 each and at nearly 50% cheaper than the Canon E6, they're a bargain! (Also being bright orange, they are easier to find in my camera backpack!)

*Update* - Mid April 2015 - after 6 months use, both batteries are still performing perfectly. They've each been charged between 2 and 3 times every month and performance has remained the same as the Canon battery. My 70D shows them both as having three bars (i.e. 100%) 'recharge performance' in the battery menu.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIghly recommended - built to last and works like a dream., 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great piece of kit for a really great price! Extremely well made and looks like its been built to last, without being too heavy. Been using it for just over a month now and its performed flawlessly, in the rain, the dry and sub-zero temperatures when ice/frost was forming on my tripod during a pre-dawn shoot. Very quick to level and lock-off the setting. Very impressed with the quality - so much so that I'm looking at replacing my ball-head with a Sunwayfoto model.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tip for attaching the foam gasket, 3 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Firecrest 16 arrived today. It is a bit strange that the foam gasket isn't already attached in the factory but there you go. From various photo forums it seems that others have had difficulties lining up and sticking the gasket on, so I thought I'd share the method I used in case it helps other people. [I think people have been trying to stick the gasket to the filter, whereas I did it the other way!]
1. Place the Firecrest on a sheet of white paper and draw around the outside with a pencil, so you have an outline.
2. Remove the Firecrest and place the foam gasket (sticky side up) in the centre of the outline.
3. Holding the Firecrest in the centre on opposite sides (not the corners, otherwise you can't see properly for this step!), slowly lower it down, lining it up with the outline on the paper until it sits on the gasket.
4. Turn the Firecrest over, so the gasket is facing upwards and ensure it's firmly stuck down all around. Job done!
It is a very tight fit in my Lee filter holder - much tighter than my Formatt Prostop IRND - I'm hoping it eases up once used a few times. Now to get outside and try it out :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, compact sack truck, 25 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for putting in the boot of your car as the handles push down into the main body. Folded up its 81cm H x 49cm W x 28cm D. The large wheels have inflated rubber tyres not solid plastic, so it handles weight well and copes with every surface I've used it on so far - pavements, cobbles and pebbles. I use it getting my dive kit to/from the shore dive site and it's perfect. Solidly built but not too heavy. Next day delivery from Economy gardening - great service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide if you're travelling lite!, 12 Dec. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're short on room but still want to be able to ID most of the marine life you're likely to see diving and snorkelling, then this is a great book to take. A paperback, not too big, and quite thin so you can cram it in a rucksac easily. Includes the most common species you're likely to see and the it's exactly the same good quality pics from the 3 series edition.
