- (July 21, 2004) After experimenting with a few other 3rd party brands, this lens came out on top. It is by far the lightest lens that brings the wide side to 26.6mm. Macro to me is very important since I often travel in a large group. The picture is not distorted as much with this lens in comparison to the others in this catagory. It also works on all other Cybershot series that have an attachment thread. So if ever you decide on changing for another Sony Digital (Cybershot), you can take these attachments with you. This lens (as other attachments)for the DSC-V1 and DSC-W1 have one major drawback which I didn't see anyone talk about during my PRE-Purchase research is that for DSC-V1 and DSC-W1, the
- (March 15, 2004) I purchased this product based upon the reviews but I found it to be totally unsatisfactory. It absolutely has very little vacuum power. I did not return it because the shipping charges are almost as much as the cost of the vacuum.
- (April 30, 2004) I bought the TC1000 and used it everyday for a variety of tasks. The mobility of wifi is incredible! I decided to give it to my mom and buy the TC1100. The speed on the TC1100 is much better. TC1000 still great too. I think the intel chip and 400 bus speed. Changing instantly from landscape to portrait mode is very nice (putting keyboard on). I still don't know if its a slate or convertible. I work fulltime and school too. The tablet allows me to do homework and watch movies,music etc all on the same device. I love both tablets and the tc1000 is a great buy for the price. I have dock and for price, recommend just getting external USB dvd/cd. Now shopping for ext USB drive. I now do believe t
- (09/12/2013) I purchased the x-rite Passport based on the company's claims that it would match colors across different models of cameras and give me accurate colors overall. However, after much frustration poor results, I decided to conduct my own test. I discovered that not only was the Passport producing inaccurate colors, it was actually worse than the Adobe Standard profile! Using two Canon DSLR's, I took photos of the Passport in the same light and then went through the camera profile creation and correction process for each one. I also set the white balance using the square two over from black. I then compared the color values I obtained after correction to the LAB reference values provided on X-rite's website (using a,b and not worrying about L) here: http://xritephoto.com/ph_product_overview.aspx?ID=1257&Action=Support&SupportID=5159. The results were unsettling: First of all, the colors from the two Canon DSLR's were not even close, contrary to the claims made by X-Rite. Secondly, as mentioned above, after WB correcting, the Adobe Standard Profile produced more accurate results for each camera than X-Rite's Passport. I attempted to use curves in LAB to correct the individual color squares, but after correcting one, the others moved further away from the reference values, and correcting multiple squares resulted in poor overall color. In August, I sent an e-mail over to support with a summary of my findings and the RAW files. The response from customer service was that they were going to conduct their own testing. Now, a month later, I have not heard anything back from them. I'm very disappointed with their customer service and engineers. They should be open to finding and fixing flaws. Instead, it looks like they are intent on stalling and hoping this issue goes away. Yes, when you use the product and go through the process of camera profile creation, you will find the colors change, but will they be accurate? Don't rely just on looking at the screen. Conduct your own tests, as I did.
