    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Great remote for my Pentax IST DS

    posted by Papator on 11/28/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very good build quality (simple but seems robust), good handling, amazing price. Indispensable for tripod-based long exposure shots ; better than timer, cause you can trigger as soon as needed, but eliminating vibrations riskes.
    Cons:
    None

    Nice USB 2.0 hub

    posted by Papator on 11/28/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cons:
    I thought it was more compact when I ordered it, but it is still very transportable. No external alimentation port (nor AC~DC ...

    Nice knife

    posted by Papator on 10/25/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Nice "Tanto" blade design, robust and manly appearance. Effective handling (hilt plates are made of black composite material, maybe ebonite ?), security increased thanks to blade guard. Good build quality. Hilt has a hole for ring or cord/chain...
    Cons:
    I bought 2 knives : - one was perfectly build, - the other one had little gap on "liner lock" system. Blade shar...
