What Readers Have to Say about Doug’s Previous Canon Guides:
reference book for my Canon - Well written and easy to understand. This book
really helps one to be able to take advantage of all the features. A must have
book for anyone new to the camera.
This book is
the only guide I need - Well written, detailed enough to answer questions
that were not well covered in the manual, and full of helpful suggestions about
camera setup and use. I was planning to buy one of the (other) books when they
came out, but I don't intend to now. This book is the only guide I need. It is a
great value, and very timely.
- This ebook is first-class, and this author knows his stuff about Canon
cameras. He cuts to the chase, and gets right to the heart of the important
matters. I learned a lot and I learned it very quickly indeed - which I am now
putting to good use with my 5D3. Highly recommended.
Helpful - This is an extremely helpful guide and complements Canon's own
guide very well with better descriptions and recommendations for many features,
especially for the Auto-focus capabilities, custom menus, navigation of the
software, and camera buttons. As a professional changing over from Nikon
systems, it helped me to understand the features of the camera better, know
where to tweak things for my own shooting style and ultimately be able to use
the camera more effectively than would have been otherwise possible. My advice
is to buy it right away and use it alongside the Canon Manual.
You A Month On The Learning Curve - This book clearly and practically walks
the reader through every step of setting up and using the camera for the first
time. A wonderfully well-organized book, it explains every feature and setting
on the camera with recommendations on optimal setup choices and the reasoning
behind each recommendation. Well-selected photos make each concept crystal clear
with no room for ambiguity or confusion. It is remarkable to me how the author
manages not only to explain the complex feature set of the camera in an
easy-to-follow manner, but actually teaches the fundamentals of exposure,
composition and efficient use of the camera in a totally compelling and
effective manner. Whether you are a novice or experienced photographer, this
book will impart a huge amount of information quickly and you will save yourself
weeks on the learning curve in just a few hours. This is the lowest cost,
highest value accessory I could have purchased. Beyond merely teaching me the
camera, it reinforced and tied together all the basic concepts of photography
and actually made me a better photographer. This book makes you feel smarter and
more in control with every page from start to finish. It's the best how-to book
I've ever read.
without technical jargon! - Douglas Klostermann has the unique ability to
explain in very readable, easy-to-follow directions how to operate every facet
of the camera. This is definitely worth purchasing as a companion to the
guide to get started with the camera - I was not disappointed, the book was
everything I had hoped for and more. This really helps you get started and make
the settings right. I refer to it again and again. I highly recommend this book
for anyone, regardless what camera they had before.
I learned so
many things that I really didn't realize that the camera was capable of -
The printed manual that came with the camera was confusing and more often than
not, left me scratching my head. What a pleasure it was to find and read such an
intelligent and useful guide to the camera. Although I've had several Canon
DSRLs, and am familiar with the menus, I learned so many things that I really
didn't realize that the camera was capable of. I would highly recommend the
e-book to anyone who has the camera.
A must have
- This is the best camera manual I ever bought - Incredibly clear and simple
to understand. Laid out logically, easy to follow. It's more of a field guide
that gives you answers at the drop of a dime. Buy this, look at the manual that
comes with the camera and you'll see what I mean. Do I love this manual? Yes!
straight forward book! - I usually buy the Lantern series to "dig
in" a little deeper into the intricacies of using my new Canon correctly.
This time however, the book wasn't forthcoming. I needed extra coaching,
especially on the AF part of the 5D Mark III. I found this book and decided to
take a crack at it. The author proceeds methodically and clearly. Every subject
is treated in turn, especially explanations on AF! Doug explains absolutely
everything, concisely and clearly. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
Resource! - A must-have resource to have close at hand. I refer to it in the
field to be able to get the most out of the opportunity and the scene. There are
so many menus and choices it can be sometimes overwhelming or plain confusing.
This book is a great tool to have readily available in its electronic form.
book, best way to learn complicated functions - This is a great guide and
will save you hours of puzzling over the Canon supplied manual. It takes you
through the many complicated focusing options (and) discusses all the important
options in a well laid out manner, with pictures of menus that you will be using
so you can easily fine tune the camera to your needs.
- This is a must have book. I have to tell you, after reading this book, and
finally moving the camera's dial to manual, what an exhilarating rush that was!
I can now control the picture itself and the way I want it. I am now the brain
behind the camera, not just the guy who pushes the shutter button. The book
really explains very well all the switches and buttons of this camera with color
illustrations. The author also gives you advice as to the best settings for each
mode, which I found extremely useful.
life-line when you really need one - I would highly recommend this ebook to
anyone. This ebook has been a genuinely valuable resource for me. Compared to my
40D, this was a really complex camera - the complexity of the features was mind
boggling for me at the time, not any more. Doug has a talent for putting things
in a clear, easily understood fashion. He goes through each parameter and
explains how it works and how the features work together. He gives real world
examples and even offers recommendations on how to get started. I think he has
done an admirable job of making this tool easy to use and sped up my learning
easy to follow - I read this book from start to finish and gained as much
information as I needed to use my dSLR to its potential. Instructions are clear
and easy to follow, format takes you through in logical sequence, tips and hints
This is the
way to do it - Do yourself a favor and get this book. Klostermann does a
superb job of first giving you an easily comprehensible view of each function,
and then delves down just enough to give you what you need to get going. I like
the masterful de-mystification of a complicated subject executed in the book, a
lot. You will too.
and precise - It explains all the features of the camera and does this in a
very clear and precise way giving a detailed run through of the camera functions
and controls as well as the operation and options of the menu system - and it
does this without assuming you are an expert photographer to begin with. This is
an excellent book to help with getting to grips with the camera, whether as a
newcomer to the EOS world or upgrading from a previous version.
Great book -
outdoes the owners manual & way better read! - This book is a great,
easy explanation. You can skip along to any points you want with ease. Written
in a much more user friendly manner than Canon's Owners Manual. Canon's manual
is an easy invitation to conquer insomnia. This book offers more information
with more interest! Highly recommended.
useful tool to understanding your new Canon - Easy to read. Easy to follow.
Most important, unlike the Canon manual, when the author goes through the
features of the camera he suggests settings choices with good explanations for
his choices. He also does a very nice job explaining the complicated focus
system for this new camera. Lots of substance to this ebook.
