Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter

Disconnects frequently
Mer , 18/09/2014

This unit was included with my purchase. It works ok but I was frustrated by it disconnecting all the time. Very handy though to be able to use my smartphone as a remote. Works much better on Android than Apple

Pros: Compact

Great product
Mer , Wentworth NSW , 18/09/2014

After much research on the internet I settled on the D3300 and I am happy in every way with this camera. It has made the move over to DSLR very easy for me. I was immediately able to get great photos with point and shoot and am looking forward to delving deeper into the D3300

Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 - Canon Mount

Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 - Canon Mount

Up to now it is one of the best 3rd party long zoom lens - future will decide if new Sigma 150-600 zooms are not better.
Chris , Melbourne , 17/09/2014

Used with Canon EOS 1D M4 and compared to Canon EF 300L F2.8 IS M2 with 2xTC M3.
Tamron's actual max focal length is 580mm. At the max focal length pictures are lucking about 5% of sharpness against EF 300L F2.8 IS M2 with 2xTC M3 converter. Focusing hunting when subject is not in contrast to the background or in medium to low light condition. AF works fine when subject is not surrounded with a busy background.

Pros: Easy to use

Nikon D5300 + 18-55mm VR

Satisified with camera but gps is near useless
nopo , Sunshine Coast.Qld Aust , 3/09/2014

Bought after reading other reviews.All suggest it takes reasonable quality images.
Iam happy with the quality overall.Good enough with my photographic ability.
What swayed me was the inbuilt gps capability..
However thegps turned out to be next to useless.Highly inaccurate and extremely slow to find its location..
Most accurate location has been 30meters and the worst has been 500meters.
To sum up,DO NOT BUY FOR THE GPS FUNCTION.

Olympus MMF-3 Adapter (weatherproof)

Olympus MMF-3 Adapter (weatherproof)

Disappointing
Mr.Olympus , Sunshine Coast , 2/09/2014

The adapter is well built and seems to operate fine, but it does not successfully adapt Olympus 4/3 lenses to my OMD EM5. They often don't focus properly and always chase before focussing

Panasonic Lumix FZ1000

Panasonic Lumix FZ1000

A stunning bit of do it all photographic kit!
JOE , NORTHCOTE, MELBOURNE , 17/08/2014

After reading umpteen glowingly positive reviews about this camera, I finally bought it and collected it from the efficient and gorgeous Teresa Marino from Ted's Elizabeth Street store yesterday, Saturday 16 August 2014. I've been test driving the camera today, 17 August. What a beautifully built, highly capable, fun to use camera it is. Built in Japan (very few cameras are these days - even the high end ones), it feels great in the hand. Yes, it's on the heavy side (just over 800 grams), but when you consider this camera comes with a 25-400mm (25-800mm in certain settings!!) Leica lens, the weight is not a serious issue. Yes, it's complicated with umpteen menus for each function, but then again, what modern camera isn't? But, what stunning images it takes! I've uploaded today's efforts and been drooling over them. Great colors, sharpness, and lovely bokeh effect. And, they were just quick snaps, shot while on the camera's intelligent auto. If you are looking for a great do it all camera that will produce beautiful images for you, then look no further, and buy the camera from Teresa at the Elizabeth St store. Tell her Joe sent you and she will look after you!

Pros: Easy to use, Build quality, Screen size
Cons: Complicated, Bulky

JVC GZ-Rx120

Disappointing
Ric , South Australia , 10/08/2014

Thought be really good having quad proof Camcorder as doesn't matter if it gets rained on etc.
Bought it and the issues started straight away with difficult to use hand strap, fiddly, flimsy access door to open to reach sockets for charging inbuilt battery, sd card etc. Auto focus takes to long when on (optical) zoom to focus on object, On playback through Camcorder the sound level was so low it was hard to hear (this may be fault with just this one camera) . On playback through HD TV the motor on the zoom was very audible as a loud whine, the quality of the movie was just average and still pic's looked liked 3 mega pixels
so was very disappointing. I was very pleased with the store as I was able to return it, thank goodness!

Gary Lum , Canberra, Australia , 8/08/2014

I purchased the MU-1a for my D7100 and it works well for my needs. I'm very happy with the purchase. I've not experienced any problems. I've not tried to transfer a RAW file I think they would take too long.

Fuji X-E1

Fuji X-E1

Poor man's Leica
MikeScully , Melbourne , 24/07/2014

I wanted some thing smaller than my Canon 5d2 but as controllable and with excellent image quality. I considered a few others which had more features and better autofocus but my heart said the Fuji. I considered the xe-2 but I couldn't justify the extra cost for what seems to be an incremental improvement. Yes, the xe-1 is slower to focus and the screen is smaller but what the heck. So far the xe-1 is great to use and unobtrusive, which is more than you can say about a DSLR. So far so good, I think the Fuji and I are going to have a happy relationship.
