Very good but poor editing
on December 29, 2013
The book has a quality look and feel and is interesting to read but has so many errors it detracts from its usefulness. It is kind of insulting to your readers to not edit your book properly. I'm talking serious errors here. The worst I've seen so far is in the first really potentially useful section of the book Chapter 3 Recommended Settings. The table of settings on page 46 is the kind of nonsense produced when one cuts and pastes one table to another without changing the info in it properly.
There is also a certain superficiality to it. As if it is not written by some one who really knows and loves the camera.
I almost bought the Compact Field Guide for the 5d mark iii by the same author. I'm glad I didn't though. I hope it is a lot tighter than this tome.
The author has such a great reputation based on other books. This one is really good but still disappointing relative to his reputation.
