Cheap, not good for recording band practice..
Pros: Records sound. Probably best suited for recording lectures, meetings, etc. But nothing where audio quality is a must.
Cons: The device doesn't record loud sounds very well. I turned the mic sensitivity to low and the recording levels all the way down but the recorded audio was still distorted from my band practice(we play loud). This recorder is not made for high volume levels. At low volume recordings you can hear significant machine interference so I don't recommend this for nature recordings.
Overall Review: I purchased an XLR to stereo connector to connect a good external mic. I believe this will let me use this for my purposes but I would have hoped it worked right out of the box.
This lens is the best zoom for the $
Pros: Focus is sharp and quick. Vibration Reduction works beautifully. Build quality is excellent. Zoom ring is slightly stiff but not an issue, definitely no issue with lens creep. Lens weight feels great with the 60D. Just read the reviews and look at the tests. You can't beat this lens for the price and quality.
Cons: Doesn't go to 800mm.
Overall Review: Buy it.
Great seller, Super fast shipping!
47st. Photo got me my Sigma 50mm f1.4 in two days. Giving me plenty of time before my first shoot with bosses newborn twins. I gave them a call to ask some questions and spoke to someone who was courteous and knowledgeable. I definitely would recommend them to friends.
