    Easy to use filter pocket

    posted by tildantore on 07/03/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    More than big enough for my 77mm filters, with room to spare. It has an OK price, it is easy to use and it is made of good material and has a good Velcro lock.
    Cons:
    It could have benefited from a hard separator to keep it from bending, but this is not a big deal. No place for labeling the fi...

    Quick and cheap solution for macro photography

    posted by tildantore on 06/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price, of course, is good. Compared to a true macro lens this is a steal. The ring feels good, lightweight metal (aluminum alloy), an outer ring with good grip for when you need to use some force to get it off your lens. The ring has the traditional red...
    Cons:
    The red dot is placed inside so you can't see it looking straight down like on a normal lens. The ring can stick a bit to your ...

    Good and affordable lamp

    posted by tildantore on 06/16/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Compared to others this one has a thicker and more solid dome. It has a good length power cord with a European power plug. On the lamp there is a attachment hole for umbrella or other equipment. The plastic feels solid and the aluminum is lightweight and st...
    Cons:
    Not many cons for this price, but if I had to be picky you can always use longer power cables and it could have been bigger. Bu...

    Solid macro slider

    posted by tildantore on 06/16/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This one is built solid, about 4mm thick material, with strong rubber on top and a nice surface. On the top plate it has two male 1/4" attachment screws and a female 3/8" in the middle which has an inlay that converts it to a 1/4". Under the ...
    Cons:
    Maybe not a con, but if you need some really fine tuning be aware that a full turn on the adjustment screw moves the slider abo...

    In-between light stand

    posted by tildantore on 06/16/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a lightweight stand with what seems to be good plastic parts in the locks and so on. The main parts are magnalium. It has good height for a table stand, but is still small when you fold it back. All in all it seems solid and durable.
    Cons:
    Maybe not a con, but still, this stand is sort of a in-between light stand. It's a bit big for a table stand and a too small fo...

    Affordable ring flash and continuous light.

    posted by tildantore on 06/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Compared to many others it is cheap. It has fairly good, strong light although it could have been better (you never get enough, right?). Lightweight, easy to handle and lots of attachment rings to fit just about any lens. The rings feels like good quality p...
    Cons:
    Although the cable seems strong and of good quality it could have been coiled. I couldn't get the flash to fire in flash mode w...

    Nice lightweight bracket

    posted by tildantore on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good quality aluminum so it is lightweight even though it is about 7mm thick. It has a nice matt black finish that seems to be able to take a punch without breaking up the finish. The two screws has 1/4" screw holes so you can attach other equipment un...
    Cons:
    It is a bit thick (about 7mm) so it won't be easy to use just any screws if you're looking to attach things with other screws t...

    Useful clamp

    posted by tildantore on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It has a pretty good grip, more than expected. The ball head swivels when loosened so you can put the screw where you want / need it. The ball head is also screwed onto the handle with two screws so it should be pretty sturdy.
    Cons:
    The handle is a little bit too short, it should have been about a centimeter or two longer for easier handling. For some reason...

    Great shoulder bag

    posted by tildantore on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Apart from the color it looks great. The material is thick and sturdy, it fits a small/medium laptop in addition to a DSLR with some extra equipment. It has a waterproof cover for when it's really raining or snowing, but even without this it is pretty weath...
    Cons:
    Not many cons, but the color is boring. But that is easy to change with some fabric dye.

    Another good clamp

    posted by tildantore on 05/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Here's another good clamp. A very useful tool to have. I've tested and reviewed another one from F&V and this one seems to be of almost as good quality. It has both 3/8" and 1/4" attachment holes.
    Cons:
    Not many cons with this one. Maybe it looks a bit cheaper than the F&V one, it has bit shinier finish and a bit different b...
