5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - works well, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This works really well. Although it says it's only suitable for very light cameras, it works just fine even with my Lumix G5 with 45-150 lens. It wouldn't be strong enough for an APSC format or larger DSLR, but for lighter micro 4/3 mirrorless systems it just about manages. I like the fact that you can leave it permanently attached to the camera. It could do with a nylon washer or similar in the camera thread so it tightens more securely, it has a tendency to come undone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but ratchet action is a bit coarse for my liking, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty good but ratchet action is a bit coarse for my liking, it's also a bit of a fiddle to switch between forward and reverse. But other than that it does what it should.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it should, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works well even on small tablets. I'm managing to cut a fairly small round pill (6mm diameter) into pretty accurate quarters with it so I can reduce my dose gradually.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seems to work but hard to change batteries and can't turn off, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We've been using two of these for a month or so now. This scarer does seem to repel cats and is well made, but has 2 weaknesses.

The battery compartment cover is secured with 4 tiny self tapping screws. This makes changing the batteries a real fiddle and I wonder how long it will be before the plastic housing they screw into becomes so chewed up that the screws won't tighten or I lose a screw. On the plus side the batteries seem to last quite well, and the compartment has a good waterproof seal.

The other thing is it seems impossible to turn off. There's no ON/OFF switch. Even if I turn the sensitivity to zero the unit still triggers. So if you're working in the garden it's best to turn the unit to face in the other direction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hoya Pro-1 Digital is better?, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually buy Hoya Pro-1 digital filter, but thought I'd try one of these as a cheaper alternative. There's a disconcerting slight green tinge when looking through the filter into the black lens barrel at a shallow angle, but the pictures don't seem to be affected. If I was buying another I'd probably go for the Hoya instead.

25 Canderel Yellow Zero Calorie Sweetener - 25 x Individual Tablet Sachets

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sweetener with no after taste, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Title says it all "excellent sweetener with no after taste". I've tried products containing aspartame and find they leave an after taste that I don't like. With Canderel Yellow I get the sweetness without the calories of sugar or the after taste of other products. It's not easy to find this product in the shops, but IMHO it's worth searching it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Panasonic Battery, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does exactly what it should. Works in my Lumix camera. Shame the genuine item is so pricey. But at least it works properly (unlike some of the the cheaper alternatives that don't display their charge status).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best hand whisk we've ever owned, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is just brilliant. Most metal hand whisks these days are cheaply produced with poor tolerances and just don't run smoothly and the blades may clash or even jam and they don't last long. The OXO Good Grips whisk is completely different. It feels like a quality piece of kitchen equipment. It runs so smoothly and comes apart for easy cleaning. It whips cream quickly and easily and is easier to hold than the usual design.

Highly recommended.

Lovely book, charming illustrations. Bought this for my mother so she could use the illustrations to inspire her own artwork. She was delighted with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The cheapest way to buy genuine ink, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Printer ink is always expensive, especially genuine rather than compatible cartridges. This way of purchasing gives the best compromise of price versus quality.
