5.0 out of 5 stars Good product Ideal for working in the dark/light!, 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great torch and excellent lighting. I live in an area where there is NO external lighting and this is great as I walk round walking dogs, feeding horses, working at night. It lasts forever but I charge it up overnight.
It is quite heavy but I always wear it on top of a wooden hat that makes it very comfortable.
The solar panel charger is great. In fact I use that more for charging my iPhone than charging the light.
Cables are good.

Here is a tip...take the cellophane off the batteries before you try to charge them...duh!!!

All in all a great product.

Mine came with a different brand name stitched in the elastic, but it looked identical.

4.0 out of 5 stars We are not al professionals and this is great for me!, 13 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ummed and ahed about buying this for ages, I needed a longer lens but did not have the budget for a fixed Nikon 600mm lens. I have the 55 to 300 Nikkor lens so I was looking for a teleconverter and found this. Whilst I am a keen amateur I am not obsessed about quality as most of my images end up on my facebook page. so at best someone will see it on a mobile phone or ipad or laptop therefore resolution and sharpness is in the hands of the observer.

So the arguments I came across were that
1) You are as well using a 300mm telephoto at the highest resolution and cropping on your desk top.
I have found: The teleconvertor means you can frame your shots in the field easier and mess with composition really quickly

2)The teleconverter is slow to focus.
I have found: Well in bright light it is great. In low light conditions in needs time and a tripod. But is does work. Be specific about what you are focussing on

3)The quality is not good
I have found: The quality is just fine and the electronics work well

4)You should only use this with a fixed prime lens
I have found: It works just fine with my telephoto lens Nikkor 55-300 zoom on a D3200

So my final comments are:

If you want to extend you lens collection at a reasonable price, it is still ú150, then this is an option.
It is so much cheaper than a 600mm lens for me and therefore was a great buy.
I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it..it works...but its not a dedicated lens., 19 Sept. 2014
I am just getting back into photography after several years not using my film based SLR kit. I went digital and bought the Nikon D3200. I saw this kit and bought it. The wide angle and macro are screwed together in one when they arrive. It fitted by d3200 lens perfectly. 52mm(!). You are buying an "adaptor" not a Nikon Lens so the quality will NEVER be the same as a dedicated lens. However really for the money it is an excellent buy.

The wide angle is good enough for those family shots, or landscape shots where you need extra width. The Macro is good enough for the odd close up shot. There is some loss issue on the Macro that you can get a blue "edge" to the right of objects and a "red" edge to the left of object. But don't let that stop you...in most cases you will be fine...buy it..its less than two bottles of cheap wine.

OK so these are not Apple products. OK they are plastic. But they work and if they break in your bag buy another one. They are great for typing on if you have an ipad and fingers that look like bananas.

These days you get more useful information on the web. For instance on the RT100 i couldnt find a reference to the clutch adjuster on the left hand side of the engine in the index or the manual. I am losing faith in these manuals.
