the owner's manual was better for me than the Dummies book
on January 4, 2015
I bought and received this e-book (Kindle) before my camera arrived and very thoroughly studied it as I was moving up from a still photo only DSLR. I had a Rebel XTi and bought a T5i. Once I received the camera I read the manual which came with it. Frankly, the owner's manual was extremely well written, logical and intuitive in layout. Bottom line, the owner's manual was better for me than the Dummies book. And I can be quite the dummy.
If you just feel that the joke-free, small format, non-margin noted Canon manual is too industrial for you then by all means get the one with the pictures. All the same information is there and it'll teach you what you want to know. It was of no extra benefit to me.
