Pro Right There with You
- If you want to get the (Canon EOS 7D) camera up and running with the feeling of a pro right there
with you then I would strongly recommend it. He walks you through setting the camera up and gives you his reasoning for the settings. He leaves the door open to change them based on your level of experience. After the basic settings tour Doug then gets down to the heart of this great camera: the custom settings and focus system. His explanation is
first class and he explains how various custom settings are related to each other. The focus system on this camera is top drawer and Doug does a fine job explaining what can be a very intimidating area of this camera. All in all a great read. Camera in one hand and reader in the other and dig in. Be warned you should be above a beginner in dSLR
understanding before diving in and this probably would not be your first dSLR camera. It is not a point and shoot read. I am on my third read through and still absorbing and tweaking. Thanks Doug....just what I was looking for.
Brilliant - just what
I was looking for! A manual that was exciting, clear to follow, had examples and was used by a professional who gave just the right amount of technical info with explanations of why you use those settings, when to use those settings and so on...all properly explained. Doug's book is a joy to follow, well thought through and well written.
The camera company should be employing Doug to write their cameras manuals!
A Must-Have Accessory - What a great addition to my bag. This is a well written, full body of work that explains, in plain English, how to get the most out my new camera. Doug provides the knowledge and experience to bring you to the next level. I look forward to learning more every time I open the book.
Really Focuses on the "Why" - I found the (camera's) manual good for understanding how to set things up but not much on the why - this book really focuses on the "why." The guide helped me understand why to use specific settings for specific needs. The Custom Settings sections helps to make firm decisions on how to apply settings by understanding the usage of each in addition to knowing how to set them up. I would like to thank you for saving me time - now I'm confident that my camera is well tuned!
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a quick start to using their camera. Manuals are nice, but this e-book highlights the important information and gives a quick easy to understand explanation of most all of the functions and controls.
This manual is a clearly
written, concise and useful explanation of the rationale for the seemingly infinite and often confusing settings options. Used in conjunction with the (camera's) manual I feel
a bit more confident in understanding how to at last proceed in getting better photographs.
This book, together with the manual that came with your camera, is all you need to start discovering all the potential of this camera.
It's clear, concise and gets to the heart of the camera's multiple and often confusing options. Very highly recommended - for experienced user and beginner alike.
The official manual is very good on what to do, but not so clear on why. Perhaps
the camera company should just hire Doug to write their manuals - it would be so much simpler for all concerned!
