It's a pretty cheap grooming kit, and does the job nicely. This grooming kit comes with a lot of fittings (5/6 attachments and 2 combs) for various grooming requirements.
1) Quite cheap
2) It's an all-in-one grooming kit, suitable for all kind of hair grooming
3) Very portable
4) [Mine came with a gift voucher of 800/- rupees I guess, which was redeemable for drinks at most pubs in Bangalore ]
1) Looks like the plastic of the trimmer and the attachments is of cheap quality
2) It takes a full 10 hours to charge! And after all this charging, it can be used for only 35 minutes. Don't get me wrong, 35 minutes is mighty good time for most times, but you can't use this kit while charging.
First of all - I bought this lens for my D90 somewhere else in Bangalore for 16k bucks. And I still thought this is the cheapest lens which does the job!
Flipkart brings this lens at an amazing price (sub 10k), and here is the review:
1) 70-300 range - amazing! Very nice for wildlife photography, even for wedding photography I'd say.
2) Macro (from 200-300mm only): I've gotten okay results. Not too good, but a macro is still a bonus
3) Price! This lens is a steal if you compare with 3x costlier Nikon lenses :)
1) Noisy: The autofocus sound will probably piss you off and drain some battery.
2) Build quality: If you pay
Nikon D90 is a great prosumer DSLR in this price range. As someone else pointed out - anything lower than a D90 is not worth being called a DSLR.
Customizability: You can shoot in multiple resolutions, multiple sizes and in JPEG/NEF formats. It has the standard nikon variety of white balances and picture tones, but setting anything is extremely simple once you get a hold of your camera.
Ergonomics: It fits your hand nicely, unlike the D5100 and D3100. Really rock solid, and you immediately get the feel that you're ready for the shoot. The two dials (one for aperture and another for shutter) is much MUCH better than having just one dial as D5100, or any Canon in this range.
Low light performance: Pretty decent. I usually go up to ISO 1600 when I'm in low light, and the pics that come out are usually good enough, with very less graininess.
Battery: Extremely reliable and long lasting. Doesn't take a long time to recharge, and takes about 1000 shots (if you don't use flash).
Autofocus: YES! Which is another big differentiator in the low end cameras like D5100 and D90. The camera itself has an autofocus motor, and it's compatible with all lenses. On a D90. you don't need to buy expensive lenses with AF motor, just because your camera body sucks.
Included Software: Horrible :) Just use Adobe lightroom or Aperture, and you'll be good.
Included Kit lens: 18-105 is a very versatile lens and extremely reliable too. It covers most of the range that you're likely to encounter. Also, the autofocus on this is very silent.
Video: Pretty basic. No autofocus makes it useless for me, really. Even the most basic camcorder is better than a D90 when it comes to video.
Overall - 4/5, mostly because of useless video functionality and due to the fact that D7000 tops D90 in all departments.
Klipsch S5i are the most rugged headphones I've used for my iPhone. Extremely reliable in all kinds of weather, so if you're into trekking, cycling or even rafting - get these on!
1) Amazing sound; great balance on bass and treble
2) 3 Button interface for controlling your iPhone / iPod, much superior to your default white iPod headphones
3) Comes with 3 ear-buds, you could choose whichever fits your ears perfectly.
4) Excellent noise cancellation! You'll hear only your music, and none of the sound nearby
5) These are the most 'rugged' earphones ever! A couple of instances which proved this -
a) My mom washed my jeans with these earphones in the washing machine, they came out perfectly working!
b) Some prankster put these headphones in a cup of cold tea! (imagine that!). They were still working absolutely well!
1) The mic is very far away from the earpieces, it's a little weird to use.
Seriously - go for it!
I've been using this lens for 1 year, and being a portrait photographer it's the most frequent lens mounted on my D90. The sharpness and bokeh on this lens are almost as good as (the much costlier) f/1.4 lens. It's also much lighter than the f/1.4. The performance of this lens in low light conditions is really great.
The lens doesn't have an autofocus motor, so the AF is not going to work on your D3100, but even if you have to focus manually it's a good buy.
Although the feel of this lens is a little plasticky, it does the job well - and given the price point, it's a must have for any Nikon SLR owner.
The ipad 3 has completely changed the way I work.
I had been an iphone and macbook air user for 5 years, and had always wondered how an iPad is going to be useful to someone like me who has the best of both worlds. But boy, was I wrong!
For a manager, who has to deal with plently of emails, notes, spreadsheets and other such apps - this was the best hardware. It starts up in a second and it's up and running with your app in no time. There are so many ways how the iPad's limitations are actually it's strengths.
Here's my review on how an iPad with (an additional) bluetooth keyboard compares to a MacBook Air:
1) Boot time - iPad wins. The air is still a laptop and takes some time to boot and launch the application of your choice.
2) Apps - Consider what applications you use most times. For me it was email / evernote / photo apps / iOS games / facebook etc. For all these iPad wins hands down. For photo processing software which I tend to use a lot (photoshop, lightroom mostly) MacBook Air is prettly slow and I use my bigger mac for those jobs now. iPad can't do any heavy lifting on photos but is okay with iPhoto
3) Mail - Mail is rock solid on iPad, apple has created an extremely good client for the iPad and you won't miss the features on MacBook Air for the most part.
4) Camera - I don't use either on MacBook Air or the iPad, they are crap. Except for the occassional facetime, which is better on the iPad because of cameras on both front and back side
5) Browsing - MacBook Air is obviously much better. You don't have the stupid 'no flash' limitation, and it's got a gorgeous display.
6) As a kids machine - iPad wins hands down, my 7 month old loves the iPad already which has tons of apps for kids.
7) Pricing- even with the bluetooth keyboard (I got the logitech case cum keyboard) the iPad is less than half the price of a MacBook Air.
Go for it!
Red Dead Redemption is probably the greatest open world game ever! RDR is set in 1911 on the US/Mexico border with a typical cowboy lifestyle of horses, duels, poker, shooting, bounty hunting and a lot of fun. You play as the protagonist, John Marston, who starts with a pistol and a horse on Bonnie's farm.
As you learn skills of horseback riding and shooting, you could choose to play as an evil man or an honorable ones - the gameplay depends a lot on that. For example, if you choose to play as an honorable man, defending strangers and returning their stolen horses, civilians will love you and you won't need to bribe the sheriffs :)
The missions in RDR are amazing! From the smaller ones like bounty hunting to the larger ones like looting a train, every one is very enjoyable. Even after playing >40 hours, I still love getting on my horse and running wild with it.
Highly suggested! 5* from me.
An X-Box is incomplete without a kinect sensor. It's the single most differentiating factor between an X-Box and other consoles.
Kinect takes wireless gaming to the next level, you control everything with your moves itself. There are specific games (marked "Kinect required") on flipkart, like "Dance Central" and "Kinect Adventures" which I have played and they are a joy to play!
It's the most interesting device, and livens up your drawing room for endless fun!
Only caveat - buy it only if you have a big enough room to play it on. If your room is too crowded with furniture, you'll need to move all that before using Kinect. Also, if your room is less than 10 feet, you won't be able to play any multiplayer games on kinect.
I did a lot of research to find a perfect bag for my camera, and I'm glad to say this is it! The Tamrac Messenger 5 carries these items easily:
1) My camera (a beast, EOS7D) with its kit lens (28-135mm USM) and battery charger
2) Lens 1 (70-300mm IS), Lens 2 (10-22mm), Lens 3(50mm 1.8)
3) A canon speedlite (430 EX II)
4) Spare batteries for the speedlite and their charger
5) A Macbook Air 13" with charger
All this - with still plenty of pouches to carry your small items. I can easily say this is one of the best camera bags for the mobile photographer!
It's the 4th in the series of GTA, and it's the best amongst those. The graphics and details are quite nicely done - and that's not always a good thing. In GTA IV - it means the profanities and adult visuals which it's famous for are even more pronounced. It's got drugs, strip clubs and non stop violence.
Recommended if you want to kill your stress by mindless killing and car theft with some nice missions thrown in, but an absolute no-no for kids.
