Not much better than the manual...
on September 26, 2010
As I am someone who actually reads manuals I was pretty disappointed by the book. I liked the examples (although even the Canon manual includes plenty) and the specific instructions how to capture sports action scenes, but that's the only positive I can say about that book. And even those tips I might have figured out myself on the first field trip.
I was looking for tips and tricks to use the camera features to improve my picture quality and make them look more professional, not how to change the camera settings. I was also hoping for more detailled explanation of the live-view and the video mode, but it seems like even the author is wondering where the live-view is actually beneficial.
