good value
“The product was shipped promptly and delivered as promised. I knew going in this was a very economical. It did take some time to figure out how to program the f stop into the camera but after that it does work well. Yes it needs lots of light but so does any lens set at an 6.3 f stop. It actually is fun seeing just what 500m and 100m does! I would highly suggest a monopod or tripod for 1000m but I also knew that prior to purchase. I really is a good value for the price.” – by Austin
