Would be flawless if it had a magnetic catch. Otherwise very nicely made and protective.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but not perfect, September 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It gets the job done, however I'm finding it takes 4 fill ups to feel truly perfectly clean. For emergency I suppose it is ok, but I may try a Qlav instead for greater water capacity and power.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good or better than Orville Redenbacker's for sure, September 7, 2014

Very light and fluffy and not greasy as much as many others I'd tried. As good or better than Orville Redenbacker's for sure. Better tasting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The way to go for the FZ1000, September 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A perfect fit and instant to apply. I was concerned as it looked as if once applied there were some imperfections such as scratches on the surface. I let it sit for a hour or so. When I came back to it it was flawless and any imperfections had disappeared.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Efficient To Say The :Least, June 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The ability of this relatively small product to keep my full sized Martin dreadnaught nicely himidified is no small feat. I got tired of spending tons of $$ on the humifier packets and wanted to give this a try. I've used smaller versions of the same thing, but the pad on this is quite unique. It sucks up a higher density of water and keeps going for weeks where the others dried up in less than a week. Nice job

5.0 out of 5 stars Buh Bye Direct TV, March 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Hooking this up was a no brainer. Scanned and got 27 local channels just as clear as I was with Direct TV. Even got 2 they never had. I'll live without the premium channels since I also have WiFi for other sourced channels and entertainment. It's even smaller than I thought it would be so easy to place in a discreet place so I don't have to look at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Small Camera that Has and Does it ALL, February 24, 2014
Having had many a pro DSLR camera body and lenses as well as a complete Micro 4/3rd system over the last 5 years (EM1 Olympus) I fully understand the compromises that can come from a "non" DSLR system. Slower focus, lessor color depth, slower shooting ability, poorer build quality, and the list goes on
Now having said that I sold ALL my camera gear off in the anticipation of this camera and lens system. I researched till I could no longer find a competent review and photo taken with this amazing X-Trans sensor. After a week of ownership I can say without hesitation THIS is the camera that will set some benchmarks after time. The Sony A7's get their accolades, but the Fuji's present something "different" intrinsic to the photographic picture. A nearly 3D look to their files that can hardly be explained. Their colors are simply yummy and are so pleasant to see. The files are also virtually devoid of ANY sensor noise or artifacts. Sony has noise reduction built in and compression you can NOT turn off. The Micro 4/3rd bodies unfortunately possess noise at ALL ISO sensitivities. This camera I can shoot right up to ISO6400 and see nearly NOTHING noise oriented 100% on screen. There is NO noise or artifacts in the blue sky shots.

Moving along to the other aspects that are amazing. This camera is fully capable of 8fps while focusing continuously. And frankly having owned a venerable D700 full frame Nikon, this camera will keep right up with it in the tracking arena. Even just spur of the moment mashing of the shutter button will render you an IN focus shot, so being spontaneous is rewarded. The build is rock solid and the switches are very tight and are not likely to be mistakenly moved. Even the back "D" pad of 4 buttons won't work by accident, you have to purposely push them. No surprises in that area with this camera. It even comes with a competent fill flash you can snap onto the hot shoe. Surprisingly it is quite powerful and will provide plenty of flash power for an average room.

Now to the LCD and the Viewfinder, which is a HUGE (largest view on the market) OLED with rich brightness and color, suitable for eyeglass and non eyeglass wearers alike. It is configurable so as to see a 100% view across from one side to the other, looking more like an IMAX theater than a standard movie screen. It has a unique split screen mode for manual focus providing a 100% view on the right and showing where in the shot it is showing in that box, allowing for pinpoint precision manual focusing. I've found the battery life to be quite surprising. I charged up on Thursday and now its Monday and I'm still shooting. It is highly configurable in general to one's specific needs with many custom function buttons you can set to what you want. ALL of the Fuji lenses are like top line quality found in the Canon L or Nikkor pro series at half the price in some cases. Sharp corner to corner with large apertures available. I use the kit 18-55 but don't be fooled, this is a "PRO" lens all the way in build and performance. I also recommend the 23mm f1.4 for outdoor and indoor walk around shooting with great subject isolation capabilites. Lastly one of my favorites and a Must Have. The 55-200. Built like a tank, still lightweight and solid and super sharp and fast to focus. This system is a amazing photographic tool. Don't miss out on not having it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 23mm f1.4 Rocks the X-T1, February 21, 2014
I recently got the new Fuji X-T1 body and this is one of the lenses I ordered with it. I have to say it is simply an outstanding lens in nearly every way. Sharp wide open, built like a jewel and nice and heavy all metal build. The ONLY thing one should be aware of is with that large mass of glass that has to be moved inside the housing, when focusing automatically you can and will likely hear a low almost grinding sound. Not to worry it is the brief movement of the large glass elements moving into position. Focus on a X-T1 is a near instant affair so if you hear it at all it might surprise you, but not to worry. The precision of the lens overall is just amazing. A pro build all the way. I consider this focal length a near "must have" for walk around purposes and indoors and such.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY Choice for all non metallic and glass products, February 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been using 303 for years on the ClearBra auto front end materials as well as door panels, kick panels and dashboards of cars. Keeps them looking like NEW for years without that fake shine. Even prefer to use it on my tire side walls for that factory fresh but not that greasy shiney look. This is the most protective product on the market without hurting anything. You could even use it on paint without harming it, although that's not a subscribed usage for it. Keeps headlight lenses looking new for the life of the car so they won't fog up on you. Also treat you're wiper blades with it on a regular basis to keep them working in top condition.
