PNY 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU16G10-GE
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great while it lasted 02/16/2012

This review is from: PNY 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU16G10-GE

Pros: Fast

Cons: Died less than a year

Other Thoughts: The card died on my Galaxy S 4G and all the information was lost. Tried recovering the data but the computer couldn't recognized it thus lost all my info on the card. Tried re-formatting it but wasn't being recognized. Tried low level formatting and it was still dead. Have other micro SD card and they're still working.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Black 21.1 MP Full HD Movie Digital SLR Camera - Body Only
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Full frame, full sized sensor. Robust quality built camera. Quick and accurate focusing. Low high ISO noise. Live view. Long battery life. Fast charging battery. Ergonomically placed controls. Large, sharp LCD screen. Low shutter noise. Sensor sensitive in low light. Weather resistant, has good weather sealing. Versatile.

Cons: Expensive, but worth it. Heavy. Can't use EF-S lenses

Other Thoughts: I've always wanted a full frame digital camera and when Newegg had this one for $150 off I went ahead and bought it. I've used FF film cameras before and miss it. I also have a 60D which though have it's merits there's no comparison with a FF camera. The battery is the same as the 60D so it'll save me from buying new type of batteries. The mode control is different as there's only creative, custom and one automatic picture mode. There's no 'landscape, portrait, low-light, close-up' modes as in other cameras. This camera is more geared to pros and semi-pros so it's up to the user to customize each mode.

5 out of 5 eggs Great camera, great deal 09/14/2011

This review is from: Canon EOS 5D Mark II Black 21.1 MP Full HD Movie Digital SLR Camera - Body Only

Pros: This is a robust solidly built camera and the quality shows. It's also a weather resistant (NOT weatherproof) camera so you can use it in bad weather provided you use the appropriate 'L' lens with it. Focusing is fast and accurate. Also the camera menus is very easy to learn.

Cons: Since it is robust and solid, it's on the heavy side compared to the polycarbonate bodied cameras such as the 60D. If you use this camera with an 'L' lens be prepared because it really gets heavy. Depending on your stamina hiking with this lens will be a bit difficult in the long run.

Other Thoughts: You can read it's features so I won't go there. I already have the Canon 60D and I will be using the 5DII as a primary or secondary camera while traveling or on a regular basis. The reason I got this camera was because of the full frame viewfinder. APS-C viewfinders are fine but nothing compares to FF. Newegg had this camera for $150 off so went ahead and bought it. Though it was free shipping unfortunately it didn't apply to Hawaii but then again the shipping was reasonable. Newegg delivered this camera within a week and watching the delivery status online really helped a lot.
