From the Book: Featured Photographs

This photograph was taken using the Canon T4i night portrait mode and an external flash. The camera properly exposed the subject while the slowing the shutter speed enough to capture the moving LED lights in the shoes, evening blue sky and house light in the background. The combination of the slow shutter speed, flash and movement results is a creative technique called Ghosting. I had to take a lot of exposures before capturing a composition I liked. The photo was created using a 12-24mm lens shot at ISO 800, f/4.0 and 1/5 second.

I took this photograph holding the camera over my head using the Canon Rebel T4i Live view feature. I adjusting the cameras the vari-angle LCD screen so I could frame my image from an odd angle. This angle allowed me to capture the deep blue sky behind the orange leaf. The photograph was created using a 100mm lens, ISO 100, f/2.8 and 1/1000 second.

The sun isn’t always in the optimal position when photographing nature and wild life. When you use the Canon Rebel T4i Back Light HDR mode the camera takes three quick photographs and combines the images to create a well-exposed photograph. When I took this photograph the light was much brighter behind the plant. So I used the backlight HDR mode to create a more even exposure.

It covers a lot of information, about the very complicated camera and the instruction book that came with the camera, in an easy to read and understand manner.

I purchased the field guide for my Rebel XTi - and knew I had to have this for my recent purchase of the T4i.

I picked this book up as a companion to learn more about my new camera. It turns out that this should be required reading for anyone who buys one.
The book is packed with tips and tricks for both the novice and expert photographer. Several hands-on examples takes you through a step-by-step guide on how to operate and care for your new Canon Rebel.
With a book like this you'll want to have fun and experiment with all the lenses, lighting and subjects that are available - which is infinite!
Happy shooting!

Format: Paperback
Rosh Sillars takes his decades worth of experience and wisdom in professional photography and distills it cleanly through the book The Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D Digital Field Guide.

The end result is a volume that helps photographers of all levels understand this latest offering from Cannon, but also allows them the benefit of his real world, practical experience in using this camera. The EOS Rebel T4i/650D is one of Canon's most popular models, but Silars takes you beyond all the facts and features. He helps the reader/user understand how to integrate this tool as part of their photographic vision. He also takes many of the enhanced features of the Wiley book style and uses it to deliver real nuggets of gold that can benefit both a range of people; from those who are upgrading to one of their first SLR's to experienced professionals like himself.

This book should be the first accessories bought by anyone who has an EOS Rebel T4i/650.

Much more readable than the operators manual. I did expect a little more in recommendations and explanations on the camera features (i.e. what works and what doesn't). It's worth the purchase to get started.

I'm enjoying this book, but I must give it only 4 stars (rather than 5) due to the typos/errata. So far, when coming across the errors I was able to spot them by either looking at the camera itself or taking a few test shots. For example, on page 59 the writer states that the "DRIVE" mode button is on the right side of the "SET" button on the back of camera, when in fact it's on the left side as you face the SET button or the back of the camera. Yes, you can spot this type of error merely by looking at the camera (or photos of it), but in my opinion, this type of error should have been caught by the proof-readers and the errors elsewhere in the book which are not so obvious tend to undermine one's confidence in the rest of the information or advice given by the author. So buy the book, but be sure to check things for yourself as you're becoming familiar with all the features and operations of this great camera.

Format: Paperback
The canon T4i is a perfect camera for the budding photographer. I've been a amateur photographer for a number of years and I'm finally looking to step up to something better. While the camera is great, my skills are lacking. This book has made a huge difference in the quality of my photos.

Rosh clearly has years of experience in the world of photography and it shows through the high quality information of this book. It offers plenty of practical advice about lens, aperture, etc. as well as technical features of the camera. He also includes a lot of good information about composition and style that have improved the overall quality of my photographs tremendously.

One of the nicest things about the book is that Rosh includes other photographers throughout it in order to offer different perspectives. These tips have proven invaluable and offer tremendous insight into the art of photography. I found lots of practical information about lighting and night photography in these sections.

First off this book is good to get you started if you are new or upgrading from previous Rebel series.

The author is thorough and you feel it when you read it.

Not a biggie but was pleasantly surprised to discover Rebel series has sharpness, Contrast and Color saturation etc settings in-built which can be tweaked.

For ex. Select the picture style(Fan button on the back of the camera below SET button) and select any of the preset style, then press 'info' next to MENU button and set your own sharpness, contrast, etc.

I have mine set at Sharpness 6, Contrast 0 , saturation 0 for my 24 - 105 L. This way i get really sharp pictures. 24- 105L is as it is sharp compared to any average lens.

You can use this setting for any average lenses and still get sharper pictures than normal. I am aware you can do this in photoshop but sharp pictures right out of the camera saves time post processing.

This will not dramatically improve pictures taken using a cheap lens but still will improve the picture quality.

It is a really cool and awesome feature if you shoot continuously moving targets like my Kid.

There is a passing mention about Custom function for back button focus which is an important feature not explained in detail in this book.
