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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Fit with the BEST protection there is, February 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've used this brand before with a Toyota Camry I had prior. Now on my new Honda Accord it is a perfect fit and has already saved the carpet from the messy winter we are having. All I do is take an absorbent rag and wipe and all the gunk, rocks and stuff are up in the rag and the surface of the Husky liners looks new once again. No scratches or defects. I'm sticking with these as my #1 choice for liners for new cars as my leases expire

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best I've Ever Used, February 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
it is everything I read about. When used with paper towels leaves absolutely NO residue and cleans grease or whatever else is on the glass. By far the best stuff for cleaning the inside back window of a auto with the annoying haze that builds up. Leaves NO residue and nothing but clean surface. Smells great too. I found in my bathroom large mirror it not only cleans perfectly but is like an antistatic coating thwarting dust on the mirror which I've noted since we moved into this new home 10 years ago. I'll be ordering this on a regular basis for sure.

The cover is a perfect fit (with the feeder tray removed) and provides ample protection as it is pretty thick material as well. Pretty much the go to cover for this printer I'd say.

3.0 out of 5 stars Messy Antics Once More, December 2, 2013
This review is from: The Sound of the Spirit (DVD)
First of all the "Messy Antic" movement is largely one of confusion. From one congregation to the next they rarely believe and act upon the exact same thing. Many think it's all about being "Jewish" when in fact it's all about being an "Israelite" (not the country but the people). The Jewish people are but ONE of the 12 Tribes. ALL ascribe to follow the Torah/Tanakh. christianity knows NOTHING about this process nor the REAL things taught by Messiah Yahushua (his name wasn't jesus). christianity is entirely a man made religion, Judaism as it is today is actually a LOT of man added traditions and regulations added to the Torah. A "true" Netzarim (follower of Messiah Yahushua) follows the Torah and the Moadim (appointed times of the Most High). It has nearly NOTHING to do with anything xtians observe (like christmas, easter and more pagan evolved holidays). It is so sad so many follow this "mix and match" Messianic movement instead of leaving their entire Gentile nature BEHIND. Just wanted to clear that up.
