It's a For Dummies book, which tells you what you are getting into. If you have owned a Canon dSLR before (and I think few people start off with the 5D Mark III), then the first few chapters won't help you all that much. The book does a good job of going over functionality, as well as tips for exposure and composition, but this is not an Advanced book. While the author's tone is funny and clear, there are certain topics that are not covered in enough depth. For example, while the HDR functionality is covered clearly, the other Multiple Exposure settings are basically ignored.

Definitely a good book if you just got your 5d III, but if you are a pro (and you probably are) there are probably books that are more detailed.

I bought this book before I bought my Canon 5d Mark III. I really wanted the 5D but was a little bit intimidated by the awesomeness of it. After looking over this book I knew that I could understand and use the 5D. I ordered the 5D and began to start learning about this amazing camera. Mr. Cordell wrote this book in a way that anyone could understand it and use the 5D. The book is written in such a way that you can pick out certain chapters and learn them or you can start at the beginning and learn as you go. I cannot believe how much this book has helped me. Great homework book to go along with the Canon 5D.

Nothing special to be mentioned. This book do not cover all the areas of the camera spec. I simply kept inside my drawer. I am thinking for selling it at the Ebay.

Easy reading for those with short attention spans and a few dollars to buy a world class camera. It was short, to the point and helps get the most out of the 5D iii.

I liked the book, except for how to use the flash with the camera. For that, it was very little help.

Bought this with the need to learn this camera in a quick and simple way. WHile I haven't read it cover to cover yet, so far it is a great learning tool for this incredible camera.
