Not only is it incredibly informative, it is very easy to follow and understand.

The book has lots of chapters on tons of different stuff, so you can really isolate and work on one thing on a time, or easily go back and review if you want.
Jess
Not only you learn the Canon Rebel T1i functions but you also learn how to use your camera to take great shots.

I bought a T1i a few weeks ago as my first SLR camera. I shopped a few different "T1i specific" books, and found this one to be the best, by a long shot. The others all seemed to be a bit too much of an "expanded manual", in that they taught the reader how to use the camera and all its settings (in a much better way than the included manual), but didn't do a great job of teaching great photography. (example- it will show you how to adjust your ISO, without explaining what ISO is, and when you would want to adjust it).

Other photography books (not specific to any particular model camera) were simply not adequate because if i wasn't learning how to use MY camera, the book wasn't helpful. Jeff Revell's book found the perfect balance between the other books. He teaches the basics (and some advanced techniques), easy to understand for a first time SLR owner, and does it while teaching you how to use YOUR camera (assuming you own the T1i). He also has a ton of great examples in there of great shots he took, and the settings and circumstances that produced those shots. I'll re-read this again soon to perfect some of the tips and techniques.

This author is GREAT! I purchased several books on the canon rebel T1i and this has to be my favorite! Straight to the point and with lots of information. There are even some fun assignments at the end of each chapter. If you are looking to use your camera in a more creative way this book is it!

A very well planned out T1i guide integrating general photography principles and practices. I like the size of the book, particuarly that the pages are slightly wider making it tend to stay open easier. I don't have to hold the corner down with another book or some other heavy weight if I choose to take my hands off the book. The assignments at the end of chapters are a great learning tool.

I was looking for a book specific to my camera, the Canon Rebel t1i/500D, that I got from my husband for Christmas.
I had never used an SLR before and had no idea about aperture, iso or anything else related to an SLR. I knew I needed
a book for beginners as the owners manual was difficult for me to read (small print) and comprehend.
After reading the reviews on several of the books "specific" to my camera and for beginners, I finally settled
on this one by Jeff Revell. It is written in a way that I can understand, at the end of each chapter there are assignments to complete.
I now know about the basics and beyond and feel much more confident using my camera.
The only fault I have with this book is that the photo examples he uses in the book are often taken with lens that
didn't come with the camera, I have the 18-55. So after learning a new skill, you really can't go out and try them out unless you have
additionally invested in an array of lens.Over all I have learned a lot from this book and continue to refer to it often.

I did a lot of research before settling on this book, and I was not disappointed, this is a great book. It is definitely not a repeat of the owner's manual. It is a great guide to digital photography with lots of pictures and explanations. If you do own a Rebel T1i, get this book. My daughter owns a Rebel Xsi and she is finding this book useful also. Isn't it frustrating to own such a super camera and not explore all the settings with "knowledge" gleaned from this book? The crux of the matter is, we can all put our cameras on "auto" and snap away but real satisfaction is, moving from the basic modes to other modes that give you total control and ultimately creating beautiful pictures in the process. This book guides you to this level in simple language.

I got this book in addition to other reference which I was not satisified with. This book is really excellent quick reference and would refresh so many essential concepts and techniques that might be overlooked or forgotten for any reason (Which in my case not being able to shoot on regular basis).

I simply rated it 5 stars because it made my experience with my 500D real joy, fun and fruitful. I ended up after reading it, regaining many photography skills that were about to vanish due to lack of practice.

Go and buy it if you really need a quick, decent and straight forward reference.

If you are prosumer....guess the 500D manual is enough.

I went to Barnes and Nobles to look through their available books on the Canon T1i. What I found were 4 books that looked unbelievably detailed and BORING!!!! Then I found this one. Not only is it incredibly informative, it is very easy to follow and understand. It is written in a way that the novice to mid-level photographer can understand and has humor throughout. I feel that I now have a grasp of what I am doing and can go out and have fun with my camera. My biggest complaint is that I paid $24.99 at Barnes and Nobles, much better price at Amazon.
