What readers of Doug's previous Canon guides are saying:
Very clear 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. -Camea
Best reference book for Canon - Well written and easy to understand. This book really helps one to be able to take advantage of all the features of my camera. A must have. -N.D
Will Save 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. 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. This is the lowest cost, highest value accessory I could have purchased. -Robert
A Pro Right There With You - If you want to get the camera up and running with the feeling of a pro right there with you then I would strongly recommend it. His explanation is first class - all in all a great read. -Tim S.
