Superb Field Guide
on August 17, 2011
This book contains exactly the information I need when out shooting. I can quickly look up the author's advice on settings for particular shooting situations. He lists the most common subjects, such as outdoor sports, indoor sports, all purpose, stage performances, long exposures, HDR, portraits, landscapes, etc. in a chapter full of tables that show every single recommended setting for those situations. There are many other tables I found useful, and when you're away from home, the two chapters of descriptions of why you should select every menu option, and when to use it, is invaluable. When you don't need a lesson on photography, but just want a field guide to supply on the spot advice, this compact book is what you need.
