The Way to Dusty Death
The Way to Dusty Death
Offered by HarperCollins Publishers
Price: $6.64

5.0 out of 5 stars INTENSE, December 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Intense. That's the best word to describe this book. There are twists and turns - on the roads and in the plot - that give this book a character all its own. The odds seem to be stacked against Johnny Harlow...all the way to the finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic lens, November 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This lens is wonderful. I'm shooting in a lot of dusty areas, so it's great to not have to keep switching lenses. Wide angle to telephoto, it works. Just a touch of softness in the shot at the top end, but not enough for me to regret purchasing it.

Try it, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. These are bright. I put two in ..., November 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wow. These are bright. I put two in the fixture in my kitchen and they make a world of difference.

One thing to watch out for. These are about twice as long as a 60 watt CFL, so make sure you have room for them in whatever lamp or fixture you're upgrading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Midway Comes To Life, November 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great book. Reads a little bit like a novel, but is historically accurate. The quotes by some of the participants bring the book to life. Wonderful job by Walter Lord. You won't regret purchasing this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice reel, June 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've fished with Garcia Mitchell reels for over 45 years. This one is as good as any I've used.

The one problem that I have with it is that the bail keeps hitting the knuckles on my right hand when I start to reel in. If the portion of the reel that attaches to the rod were about half an inch longer, it would be perfect.

Smooth retrieval, lock works well, very quiet reel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good rod, June 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good rod, great feel.

Problem I have with it is that it is advertised as a one-piece rod when it is actually a two-piece.

Other than that, I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Outlet, June 18, 2014
This unit works well. There's enough room to plug in several power packs as well as power cords.

Heavy duty, well built.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product!, May 29, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The thought that went into this product seems to have been done by a photographer. This pouch is light, roomy, will protect the filters inside and will not take up a ton of room in your camera bag. This pouch will hold three filters up to a diameter of 77 mm.

The cleaning cloth included with it is a great bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Substitute!, September 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was a little apprehensive when I ordered this battery grip. I was worried that it wouldn't work correctly with my A77.

No worries. No problems. I now have a camera that feels a lot more balanced in my hands and is more comfortable to use. I have somewhat large hands and the body alone was cramped to hold. With the grip, it fits.

It's nice having two batteries and I put the system to the test when I went up to the Reno Air Races. I shot over 1100 images and just barely got into the second battery. All the controls work with the camera, so you can set it up just the way you want to as if you were using the camera controls themselves.

At about 1/6 the price of the Sony grip, you're way ahead of the game here. Try this product. You won't go wrong.
