From the Author

In depth, yet accessible, for beginners and Canon veterans

Rather than rush to be first on the shelves with a cursory overview of the Canon EOS Rebel T3i, I decided to take some extra time putting together this comprehensive, 400-page guide that answers all the questions that both beginners and more experienced amateurs will have about this sophisticated camera.  If you're serious about photography, you need:
  • Detailed coverage of the T3i's autofocus features.  Are you confused by all the T3i's autofocus options? Learn how to choose focus modes and zone selection methods to snap into sharp focus every time.  You'll find explanations of exactly how phase detection and contrast detection work, and step-by-step instructions for using techniques like stack focus.  
  • Essential advice on settings options.  You need more than just a rehash of menu options and settings.  You want advice on when you should use (or not use) each option.  I've included two full chapters (more than 100 pages) of tips so you can set up your camera with confidence.
  • A full chapter on shooting movies and Live View.  My tips go beyond just the camera controls to show you how to get better movies and audio using storyboards, establishing shots, close-ups, two-shots, and more.  Get the most from your T3i's full HD video capabilities.
  • First-hand experience with the full array of Canon lenses for the T3i.  I own and use virtually every lens in the Canon line, and have summarized my recommendations on a full chapter that evaluates the available lenses.
  • The latest technology. I'm always looking at new stuff, like Eye-Fi cards, GPS, and smartphone/tablet apps, and provide the latest news in my books, including coverage of Canon's newest 270EX II and 320EX flash units.
  • Entire chapters on exposure and histograms, flash and other topics. Improve your photography skills as you learn to use your T3i.
I know you'll enjoy using your new T3i as much as I have.  Sit down with me and let me show you how to get the most from your camera.  And if you need a camera-bag-friendly guide to take with you everywhere, I have written a Compact Field Guide for this camera, too.

More About the Author

With nearly 1.5 million books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling author of camera-specific guidebooks, and the originator of popular series like David Busch's Pro Secrets, David Busch's Compact Field Guides, David Busch's Guides to Digital SLR Photography, and David Busch's Quick Snap Guides.

Most of his hugely successful books for Nikon, Canon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, and Panasonic digital cameras are the top-selling guidebooks for their respective camera models. His advice has been featured on NPR's "All Tech Considered."

Busch's dozens of other books devoted to digital photography include David Busch's Digital Infrared Pro Secrets and Mastering Digital SLR Photography. As a roving photojournalist for more than 20 years, he has illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. Busch has operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college. His photographs and articles have been published in magazines as diverse as PhotoGraphic, Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He's also reviewed digital cameras for CNet Networks and Computer Shopper.

As a writer, photographer, and contributing editor for ten magazines, he has more than 130 books and 2500 articles to his credit. A PR consultant for Eastman Kodak Company's photography divisions for nearly 20 years, Busch has published photography articles under his by-line in Popular Photography & Imaging, PhotoGraphic, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer and other photo magazines. His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising.

The graduate of Kent State University operated his own photo studio and was a principal in CCS/PR, Inc., one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, working on press conferences, press kits, media tours, and sponsored photo trade magazine articles. In addition to Kodak, CCS photography clients included Hewlett-Packard. He sold his interest in CCS in 1992 to become a full-time author, photographer, and reporter.

Since then, Busch has become one of the leading photojournalist/authors in the United States. He has had as many as five books appear simultaneously in the Amazon.com Top 25 Digital Photography Books, and when Michael Carr of About.com named the top five digital photography books for beginners, the #1 and #2 choices were his Digital Photography All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. Several of his digital imaging books have sold in excess of 50,000 copies.

Busch was a featured guest speaking on digital photography on Toronto's Breakfast Television show in 2005, was the keynote speaker at the Dayton Computerfest, and has been a call-in guest for 22 different radio shows nationally and in major markets, including WTOP-AM (Washington), KYW-AM (Philadelphia), USA Network (Daybreak USA), WPHM-AM (Detroit), KMJE-FM (Sacramento), CJAD-AM (Montreal), WBIX-AM (Boston), ABC Radio Network (Jonathan & Mary Show).

His work has been translated into Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Bulgarian, German, Italian, French, and other languages. his web site is http://www.dbusch.com.

Ha! I finally came up with an omission in Busch's T3i guide. There's not ONE mention of the type of rubber used in the AV connector cover!

Other than that, I don't think Busch has missed anything.

The book's well written, well organized and should answer most any question you have on the T3i.

But you know what I like best? Busch loves the T3i as much as I (and the vast majority of T3i owners) do.

You might expect a professional photographer to talk down to you a little bit ("Well, since you've chosen to get an entry level DSLR, we'll have to look past its weaknesses....").

Busch, however, is someone who loves this camera, embraces it, and clearly conveys his vast knowledge about it to you.

You get the feeling you have an expert in the room with you explaining things and answering any questions you may have. He walks you through getting oriented to the camera, then putting it to effective use, taking advantages of the MANY excellent features the T3i offers.

Whether you're new to the T3i, or someone who wants to better understand its in-depth features, this is a great book!

There is so much I can say concerning this guide, this will be very short...

I'm fairly new to SLR photography, I had been mostly a video camera person. So decided to jump into photo's & video. I did not want to read a guide on general EOS SLR how to.... I wanted information directly concerning my camera. This was a great choice of the breakdown of every part of camera & what it's use for each function... because there is a lot of buttons on this camera. The camera's manual was ok, but I needed more in depth information on this. It will take a long time to read all this... I started past the basics, because I already had some knowledge of camera funtions.

David Busch's guide is very in depth, yet understandable. Great for beginners & Pro's. There is a great history on his life as a photographer, in which is all at the beginning... very interesting to read. I have had this book a while, and it has help me become an even better photographer learning dof, exposures, lighting, menu functions, etc.

I highly recommend this... A MUST HAVE ).

This book is so much better than the manual you get with the camera.I couldn't figure out a few things with my camera and as soon as I got my book I looked up the issues and within a few minutes I had everythng working the way it should have been.It's really easy to understand and detailed but not overly detailed.

Let me preface this by saying I'm new to DSLR and so have purchased and read about a dozen books in the pursuit of learning the fundamentals of photography and teaching myself how to use my new camera, a Canon Rebel T3i. Some of the books--like this, David Busch's Canon EOS Rebel T3i/600D--are camera-specific (since--let's face it--the manufacturer product manual that comes with the camera is all too dense, rather light on anything resembling the how or why, and generally just assumes you've already mastered the lexicon of photography), others focus on the fundamentals of photography, and a few are really just collections of tips and recipes for producing specific kinds of shots (i.e., the how, but now why).

I highly recommend this book if you really want to learn the ins and outs of the T3i. It's comprehensive, covers every topic related to the T3i that you can imagine, and really just a wonderful resource. I also find the organization very logical and easy to follow. It starts with the fundamentals, and then once you've gotten the hang of those it introduces you to more advanced features and functions and even includes some sections throughout that troubleshoot you through common problems. It's a book you can read cover to cover (which is what I did), and that you can then come back to and re-read at will as you need more information about a specific function. Or if you're in a rush, you can start by just reading the first three chapters (and, if you have time, also read chapter four, on exposure); the Table of Contents and Index are detailed enough that after reading the first few chapters, you can hopscotch around to the topics of most interest and relevance to you.

Great info from a pro; everything you want to know about your T3i. The book is a bit on the thick side, which makes it hard to take it everywhere with you, but it explains everything in a simply way.

David Busch's guide is excellent. I am not a professional but an average person taking photos for family and hobby. The guide is well written in plain language for the non-professional like myself. It is very detailed and informative. Well worth the price. I also purchased the CanonT3i SLR camera from Amazon at a very competitive price. Hence the reason for the guide book. Very Satisfied with both the Camera and the guide.
