If you have ever wanted to take a picture, and needed more than the built in 10 second timer on your DSLR. Then this is an affordable corded remote that will do the job and then some. After using this for a while I understand why an Intervalometer is so important to have in your camera bag.
When researching the purchase of a DSLR, I found a lot of references to cleaning the mirror and sensor inside the camera. I remember from the film days that occasionally you had to do this. It was a pain but didn’t seem to be a very frequent thing. I found references that basically said that since the sensors in the cameras are electronic they tend to build up a little static electricity and really draw the dust to themselves. To be honest I pretty much blew these statements off. It had never seemed to be a problem in the past and I am pretty careful to keep the opening of the camera down when changing lenses. Besides the Sony A550 has a built in sensor cleaner right?
This review is for the Zeikos ZE-FLK55 55mm Multi-Coated 3 Piece Filter kit that I found on Amazon for $12.95. I picked these up for one reason. I wanted to try some filters out. I couldn’t see paying $20 or more for a filter if I didn’t know if I would use it, or even like the results it gave. So for less than the price of one filter I got 3 and a nifty carrying case for them all. I placed my order and waited, and waited, and then they finally came. It took a couple weeks from order to delivery.

This is a review of the Quick Strap camera sling that I picked up on Ebay for less than $20 US. It appears to be a pretty blatant copy of the Black Rapids R-strap. But that didn’t stopped me from buying it.
After taking pictures with my new Sony Alpha 550, I was seeing reviews of a strap (sling) that allowed the camera to hang out of the way at your side when not in use. This was opposed to flopping around on your chest the way normal camera strap does. The brand I had been hearing a lot about was the R-Strap, manufactured by BlackRapid.
