Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
the content becomes more boardly.Its a double-edged sword. Which means if you are focus on lighting, X1 whole book tell you the story while pro3 just a chapter.In other opinion, the book changed from a pratice book to a window to open your sight.Actually i'd love the old day x-Series because it helped me directly in my work.maybe next series can become more practical technology more than now.
