    Get a Grip

    posted by JHM64 on 02/10/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very well engineered, top marks for build quality and finish. Externally every detail matches the original; apart from the branding you really cannot tell the difference. The BP-D11 fits perfectly on the D7000 camera, both mechanically and functionally. T...
    Cons:
    Some of the buttons/controllers lack the sophisticated “feel” of those on the camera itself, thus revealing that they are proba...

    Still love it after 1+ year

    posted by JHM64 on 11/19/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I have owned this headlight for more than a year now, am I still love it. It is very compact, lightweight, well balanced and comfortable. Therefore it can be worn for long periods of time without it causing fatigue, headaches or neck aches. I also like th...
    Cons:
    The Field of View (focus) mechanism has a slight tendency to stick. This can be alleviated by applying a little bit of silicon...

    Cool Flashlight, can be hot too!

    posted by JHM64 on 04/12/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    For just under $34 this is a real bargain. This is a very, very solidly built Flashlight which produces an impressive amount of very white light. All threads are nicely cut, with (mostly double) lubricated O-rings in every joint. Good beamer with with mo...
    Cons:
    Thermally this light is not very well laid out, which may cause it to overheat. However, you do not have to be a technical exp...

    Do your plants a favour

    posted by JHM64 on 04/10/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very easy to use, gives instant feedback about soil condition. Although probably not an exact reading, it does provide a pretty good indication whether your plants need some attention. I use it primarily for watering, to make sure plants do not dry out or...
    Cons:
    Needs to be handled with some care. Probes can easily bend when pushed into the soil. Also, the item should not be left outsi...

    Good value

    posted by JHM64 on 01/15/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Good build quality. Especially like the rubbery finish, which provides good grip. It's pretty accurate too, within 1 degree C under the right conditions (see "other thoughts"). Good display. Battery is included.
    Cons:
    The legends by the two selector switches for C/F display and Laser pointer on/off are in Chinese, which does not conform to DX'...

    Excellent Flashlight

    posted by JHM64 on 11/27/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very pleased with this flashlight. It is very tolerant to input voltages, so you can use various types of rechargeable- or non-rechargeable batteries. Although brightness is not specified, I estimate it at approx. 250 lumens, hence pretty bright indeed. ...
    Cons:
    None really.
