    Does not fit some Nissans

    posted by skegger on 01/05/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Good to replace blown instrument lights. Good price too.
    Cons:
    Does not fit R31 Skyline / Pintara or Nissan Pulsar N15 (Almera etc). They looked like the correct globe but do not fit. Lugs o...

    It works, and it works well!

    posted by skegger on 09/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I was a little skeptical, but I took a punt and it paid off! * E-TTL - Will talk to your Canon DSLR like a regular speedlite. * Can be used as a master or stand-alone slave. The second slave mode will even ignore some of the preflashes from the fill flas...
    Cons:
    * Part of the manual is in Engrish, part speaks about another flash (this one doesn't have a dial, it has buttons!) * Sometime...

    Very slow to update but seems to work

    posted by skegger on 10/02/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Waterproof sensor that can be submerged in fish tanks and aquariums. Seems to be well built and has suction caps on both the sensor end and the display so you can stick it to any smooth surface. Suction caps seem to be very strong and durable. It has a swit...
    Cons:
    It's quite slow to update so it's not very useful for my purposes (monitoring temperature for black and white photography chemi...

    Works well under XP

    posted by skegger on 06/17/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It simply works under Windows XP. No dramas. Plugged it in, Windows detected it, controllers plugged in and away it went. No need for the driver CD. LED comes on when a controller is connected to the port. Dual shock functions for analogue sticks work perfe...
    Cons:
    * No indicator to show which port is player 1 and player 2. * The item I received was not the same as the one pictured. Mine di...

    Solid Lens Hood

    posted by skegger on 04/30/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    It's a bayonet type that is especially made to fit the Canon lens. Fits perfectly onto my EFS 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lens. The plastic seems solid yet flexible enough that it will survive being accidentally stepped on. It can be mounted backwards for situations ...
    Cons:
    It's the ordinary round type. Other than that no real cons.

    Excellent Value!

    posted by skegger on 04/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent Price! Canon charge a premium price for their OEM hardware and their remote shutter switches are no exception. This one is under $5 and the build quality is excellent. It has a nice thick cable and sturdy body with nice rigid cable relievers on t...
    Cons:
    This product is hard to get hold of when it's in stock, maybe because it's such a great bargain.

    Does what it does - Pig shaped LED Torch

    posted by skegger on 02/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    You press the button, and the light comes on! It's that simple really. The light is fairly bright, useful for finding keys and keyholes in the dark or finding your way around the house at night. Very handy and the shape is a talking point when people see it...
    Cons:
    As with most keyring based items the keychain is made of soft metal and will bend and/or break. Make sure you replace the chain...
