What Readers are Saying about Dougís Canon dSLR Guides:
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.
Companion - A comprehensive and concise guide for hobbyists
who desire to enhance their photography experiences.
I highly recommend this (Canon T3i) guide to anyone who wants to get out of
auto mode and learn how to take high-quality photos.
It brilliantly explains how to apply advanced techniques and tips,
walks you through the daunting task of menu settings, and smoothly guides
you through the image-taking process.
The instructions and explanations are easy to follow and well
organized. The guide is a
portable class on digital photography!
A must-have if you want to learn how to use your camera to its
Guide to Using a T2i - I don't know how I could fully take advantage of
all the features the T2i has to offer without this publication!

keep your attention while still containing a wealth of information, tips
and tricks to get the most out of your camera.
I'm very happy that I found this guide.
What Readers are Saying about Doug's Nikon dSLR User's Guides:
book, together with the manual that came with your camera, is all you need
to start discovering all the potential of this camera.
the first guide I've read which has taken me through all the settings in
an understandable way. I now feel that I have control over the camera
recommend this to anyone who wants to get a quick start to using their
camera. Manuals are nice, but
this eBook highlights the important information and gives a quick easy to
understand explanation of most all of the functions and controls.
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!
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
