Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This book is for anyone who upgrades from their point-and-shoot or first DSLR to a Canon Rebel T1i/500D and wants to get the best shots possible but isn't sure what to do next. There's the manual, of course, as well as competing books, and while they all tell camera owners, often in 400+ pages, what the camera can do, none of them shows them exactly how to use their camera to create great images!

This book has one goal: to teach Canon Rebel T1i/500D owners how to make great shots using their Canon camera. It teaches them how to use their T1i/500D to create the type of photographs that inspired them to buy the camera in the first place. Everything in the book is in service of creating a great image. Starting with the top things they need to know about their camera, the author then carefully guides readers through the modes of the camera. Users will get practical advice from a pro on which settings to use when, great shooting tips, and even end-of-chapter assignments that will allow T1i/500D owners to immediately put to use all the great info in each chapter.

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.

If you want to learn how to take great pictures using your Canon Rebel T1i, get this book. This book covers everything you need to know about your camera's functions and how to use it to shoot great shots. Revell explains exposure so succinctly that this is the first book that gave me full grasp of the topic. (I've read a few others).

I read someone complain here that there are several full-page pictures in this book and that this does not justify the number of pages this book claims to have. How can a book that is about photography, not include photographs? Any book on photography is incomplete without showing you pictures so you can understand how different exposure settings produce different results. The author does a great job of showing some of his pictures from his own collection as examples. I like this approach because it makes the concepts easier to understand - a picture is worth a thousand words!

What's even better is that this book is written for the owners of Rebel T1i so not only does it show you how to take great shots but also shows you how to exclusively do it with your own camera so you'll know exactly which menu you have to go to change settings.

The only thing that I wish Revell covered more was HDR photography. This book slightly touches it but does not go into more detail.

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.
