5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap macro option, great results, April 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was a little bit skeptical about the kind of macro photography that could be achieved with these extension tubes, but since they were cheap, they were a good option to try the world of macro photography.
The results are amazing. All the auto functions between lens and camera work perfectly and the picture quality is great.
As the product instructions mention, you lose some light, but that's ok. Construction quality is good in my opinion and they are easy to use and lighter than a standard macro lens.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent GPS tracker, July 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've got two of these receivers for one with a Nikon D300 and another with a Nikon D7000. They lock on satellites very fast and are very accurate. Cold start takes generally under 1 minute, the only exception is when I travel long distances by plane; in such cases it may take a few minutes to acquire a lock. I leave it on the whole time to make sure all my pictures get GPS info and it doesn't drain the batteries. On the D300 I can go a whole day around with the GPS on and taking several 100s of pictures and the battery will still have some power left at the end of the day.
Coverage is excellent in almost any outdoor location and sometimes even indoors, depending on the building construction.
I'll never go back to carrying a separate GPS tracker and using software to tag pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bag, July 6, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It looks more as a laptop bag than a camera bag. Plenty of space for lots of stuff. I carry inside a nikon d300 with the 18-200 lens attached, a SB600 flash, a sony cx7 video camera and all the respective spare bateries, two filters, a difuser for the built in flash, and a few documents. I still have space in the outside pockets to carry my garmin etrex (for geotagging) and the tomtom gps navigator that I remove from my car. All in all a fantastic camera bag.

4.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had bought this a long time ago, February 1, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had been using a 2.4Ghz sender for the past two years and I had lots of problems with interference. This product is fantastic, image is clear with no interference problems, WI-Fi and Microwave is not a problem anymore.
I give it only 4 stars because the range of the IR receiver seem to be shorter or less strong than my previous sender, so from time to time changing channels is a problem, however the image and sound quality of the transmission makes it up for that minor problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good tracker, July 13, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've used it during a 3 weeks trip around Europe.
Good reception and reasonable cold start. Tested it side to side with a garmin NUVI and this device was able to recover the lost signal when coming out of a tunnel as quick as the Garmin.
Position is quite accurate, though sometimes it creates a "spike" on the map when loosing the signal (eg when going inside a building).
Software is ok for tagging but somehow basic whith other features. I prefer the more advanced features of jetphoto, so I invested another $25 on that software and now I have the perfect combination. Because of the software I only give it 4 stars, the hardware deserves full 5 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, May 19, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It kind of does what is says in the description but it misses a couple of features that would make it suitable for its purpose:

1 - It records sound, but it has no speaker to talk or listen through the door. What's the point of seeing the person at the other side of the door if you can't talk to them?

2 - It should have al least a led to illuminate the subject. When it gets dark the device becomes useless to see anyone at the other side of the door. It's also impossible to see the subject if there's strong daylight behind the subject (as in our case where the main door faces the street) since the camera will darken the face to compensate for strong backlight.

Conclusion, nice gadget if you just want to record what's going on outside your door at daylight. Useless for any other purpose.

2.0 out of 5 stars No here, not there, May 19, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unfortunately this dvd is not upto the quality of other salsacrazy products. Neither is good to learn salsa nor as a workout routine.

The salsa steps are covered too briefly and only from the man point of view (so ladies can't learn their steps), but at the other side the steps you need to learn are too complex for a workout.

If you want to learn salsa get The complete salsa mastery from SalsaCrazy. For effective workout, get something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best course ever, May 19, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We've tried several salsa courses, but this is by far the best.

Despite being at intermediate level with other courses, we started from the beginning with this one and we're really glad we did so. In this DVD they really take their time to teach you everything, and we've discovered and understood now many things that are not clear in other courses.

This is a must if you want to learn salsa on your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent player, February 22, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had this player for almost 1 month. I've tried all the functions except recording and here are my impressions.

Positive Points:

- Superb, and I really mean it, superb screen. I've compared it against friends with Ipod (too small screen) and creative Zen Vision (not so sharp and bright)

- Very good sound for this kind of device

- Enough space for all my music (50Gb), and also to carry plenty of movies and store my photos.

- Easy to use interface for basic functions.

- Very easy to transfer music and videos using Windows Media Player

- Easy connection to TV to view movies stored in the unit with excellent quality (of course depending of the compression used for the movie itself). Note that the docking station IS NOT required to connect it to the TV to watch movies(another reviewer wrongly complained about this)

- Absolute value for money

Not so positive points:

- Access to advanced functions (secondary menu) not very intuitive.

- The auto setting for screen size does not work very weel. It will always expand the picture to fill the viewing area this results in losing part of the picture with movies in wide-screen format. It can be solved by selecting "original format" but it is irritating, given that most of the movies today are in WS format.

- it has a "bookmark" function that can be used with any file to mark important points. Generally this is would be a great feature to go back to wherever you stopped playing, however since no name can be given to the bookmark, it is impossible to go back to it unless you remember the exact file you were listening to, and to go back to it you'll have to scroll through all files in the list. Imagine you set the bookmark and stop, lets say , on file number 250 of a list containing several hundred.. then you go and watch a movie or whatever (there's a resume function but only goes back to the item currently played, the movie in this case) and try after that to go back to the mp3 you were listening to... good luck.

- When charging the unit there's no indicator to show how much has already been charged.

Overall I'm extremely pleased with this device.
