What Readers are saying about Canon T3i Experience:


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 of 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.



Definitely reduces the slope of the learning curve to an easy gradient - I found that it was easy to read and understand, full of important hints and suggestions and allowed me to get to grips with the tools available in the camera in a very short time indeed.  Excellent value!



Great for New T3i Owners - This is an excellent resource for new T3i owners.  In my case, I was upgrading from a Rebel XT so I appreciated the "just the facts" point of view.  Overall, a great resource - highly recommended!

S. Wheeler


Quite a Helpful Book - It is a great foundational teaching on the camera and was a lot of help in getting me comfortable with the controls.  I also found the personal experiences and thoughts shared by the author to be quite helpful.  I have recommended and will continue to do so.



It really made using the Canon Rebel T3i very simple - I also liked the fact that it is in pdf format, which means I can keep it on my iPhone or iPad while I'm out in the field.  The price is right, the product is sound and most of all, the information is useful.

-Michael M.


Excellent T3i Learning Jump Start - The book and author do not disappoint.  There are so many helpful and practical tips shared and in terms I can understand as a novice.

-Cathryn C.


Amazing! - Great and easy to understand and very complete. Very highly recommended.  The guy REALLY knows what he's talking about.



Awesome Book - Bought this book right after I got the camera - was the best decision I made.  It shows the key points of setting up and taking images with the Canon T3i.  I am a novice when it comes to dSLR's and I still felt this book helped me a ton.  Would highly recommend it to anyone.

-Sean S.
