5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy, March 17, 2015
No need to add anything about the high quality of the game. I'm through one 3 day cycle and now I understand the reason for the outpouring of love for this game. It's like a groundhog's day for Link. Just buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars What are you waiting for? More reasons to lose the shot?, March 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What are you waiting for? If you're looking at this, you already know what you're looking for. Plenty of reviews all over the place for this lens. I went from the 50mm f/1.8 to this one. The f/1.4 is a big step up, both in quality of construction and the pictures you get. If you're serious enough about photography to want to get this lens: PULL.THE.TRIGGER.

Each you shot you take without this lens is another potentially wasted opportunity. Sure the f/1.8 can get really great, beautiful pictures *compared* to what it costs. If that's all you need, then move on. This is for someone looking for a little more. close up portrait shots will benefit from the extra stop.

Once again, if you're planning on keeping photography as a long term hobby, this is the one that will stay with you. The thrifty (f/1.8) can join the rest of your camera equipment in the closet if you are fickle about snapping pics and will give up on photog quickly. This is the one. Get it. I see pros with this lens all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact and great price., March 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really like the compact size. That's all I was looking for to fit into my tiny apartment. The other's I tried were a bit too large when stowed away. The trade off is that it doesn't raise as high as the others. If that doesn't matter to you, which it didn't to me, then this is what you're looking for. The price also can't be beat. Quality build from something you would expect Sony to put their name on.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nintendo certified product ensured a really good fit with the wiimote. I was a little surprised by the small size. As you can tell from the picture, it's not any bigger than the actual wiimote. I just didn't realize before I ordered.

Dimming is very good. No issues when paired with my Lutron MAW600H-WH Electronics Maestro Duo Dimmer, White single pole switch. Very little heat when compared to the flood lights that it replaced in the kitchen. Worth the investment.

The battery life on the monitor is about 3 hours max. Nothing different from what others have reported here. My friend says he gets about the same with his motorola closed circuit cam. The ability to point the camera using the monitor is very nice and intuitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars The experimental shutter ring is a great new concept but difficult when trying to hand the ..., December 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Picture quality is what you would expect from any Canon P&S model. The experimental shutter ring is a great new concept but difficult when trying to hand the camera to someone else to take a shot for you.

The screen tilt allows you to put the camera down at low angles for an upward shot, but I wish there was a way for much smaller angles. When you tilt the screen out, it starts at a pretty sharp angle up. So it's not really useful as a psuedo kickstand when taking a pic straight on.

The nubs on the sides are for a wrist or neck strap. Since I prefer the camera to be low profile, I have nothing attached to the nubs and they just look ugly. Wish I could detach them easily.

As everyone reports, the creative shot mode takes a burst of several shots and can be handy for composing some surprisingly fun portraits in the different modes and filters. These modes are available on their own if know what you want and would rather shoot directly using a particular filter.

In order to stay compact, the camera uses a very small NB-9L battery. I purchased an extra battery to get a head of the issue of needing more juice.a

4.0 out of 5 stars Great case for a minimalist, November 27, 2014

UPDATE: I've had several exchanges with the company and they were very proactive to find out how they could help make my experience with the product better. Adding a star for wonderful customer service. I would not hesitate to continue buying more products with Inateck!

Original review:
Thought I could go with an unconventional case, but it just feels too risky to me. The triangular fold to act as a stand for the ipad is a great idea. I use it more in this position than to hold the ipad. The stand is perfect for viewing media.

The shape does not seem to hold the iPad mini as closely as the pictures show. It didn't seem as snug. And the magnet to hold the leather strap in place does not seem that strong or secure. It feels like the magnet could give way and then your ipad will just slide What onto whatever floor you're standing on at the moment. I'd rather not live with the stress of that possibility. On the other hand, you can put a snug silicone skin on the ipad mini and there will still be space to hold your ipad mini to protect the screen from scratches while in transit in your bag or luggage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, inexpensive case, November 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I don't know who out there without severe head trauma would consider this color blue. The actual color matches the pictures pretty closely. It's more of an aquamarine or sea-green color. Maybe it could pass as blue-green (which was my favorite crayola crayon) but definitely NOT blue. I bought this color because I couldn't decide on a color and didn't want black. I guess that's why I like blue-green...it's indecisive. Price was the factor. This color was the cheapest.

I've been searching for a sleek and easy case for my iPad mini. I have the 2nd gen 32gb wifi only with retina screen, not the 3rd gen with the fingerprint reader. This is it! Never heard of the brand before, but it will do. It's so cheap you don't have to think twice.

There aren't really any pics showing the plastic case that holds the iPad in the cover, so I've uploaded a few of my own. The cutout for the camera and second microphone on the back line up perfectly with my iPad Mini.

I was debating between this case and the speck. This one wins out because the case doesn't block the bottom speakers. A minor difference, but I think the makers tried to take away as little from the iPad user experience as possible. The magnets are strong enough to hold the cover closed on its own. The stand will stay put in any position. Great, inexpensive case!
