All and more than I expected.
on April 9, 2012
I am the typical user advised not to buy this camera. I, up to now, only took photos in Automatic but wanted to learn and become more of a photographer. Almost immediately after buying the camera set off with my wife on a lengthy trip to Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. We took a very high number of pictures and mainly due to shooting through moving Bus and Helicopter windows ended up deleting almost 30%. The quality of the remaining pictures ran from outstanding to passable. At the time this book wasn't available but when pre-order was possible I did and am over joyed with what I found. Within a few pages capabilities were made available to me I didn't know existed. The explanations along with camera in hand were easy to follow and I know I will now be able to put the camera to much better use than was possible before. I know a one time read is not enough but I am persistant and will take this to a whole new level thanks to continued use of this book. I highly recommend it and believe just about anyone would find it of value. I know there will be those who will say all this information is available in the manual supplied with the camera but then I would believe they hadn't read the book from start to finish.
