About the Author
With more than a million books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling digital camera guide author, and the originator of popular digital photography series like David Busch's Pro Secrets and David Busch's Quick Snap Guides. He has written more than a dozen hugely successful guidebooks for Canon and Canon digital SLR models, as well as many popular books devoted to dSLRs, including Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Second Edition, and Digital SLR Pro Secrets. As a roving photojournalist for more than twenty years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. He's operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college. His photos and articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He has also reviewed dozens of digital cameras for CNet and Computer Shopper, and his advice has been featured in National Public Radio's "All Tech Considered." When About.com named its top five books on Beginning Digital Photography, debuting at the #1 and #2 slots were Busch's Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. During the past year, he's had as many as five of his books listed in the Top 20 of Amazon.com's Digital Photography Bestseller list--simultaneously! Busch's 120-plus other books published since 1983 include bestsellers like David Busch's Quick Snap Guide to Digital SLR Lenses. Visit his website at http://www.dslrguides.com.

I previewed a few other G12 guides. The David Busch guide is on the more expensive side, but the way this guide ties the various features together makes it worth the extra money. It also does a great job of explaining some fundamental aspects of photography--like flash, focus, exposure, and how the zoom affects perspective--specifically as they apply while shooting with the G12.
There are occasional factual errors in the book. For example, the book describes the G12's neutral density filter as a "virtual" filter that's applied electronically to a captured image; in fact it's a real optical filter that slides over the aperture inside the lens. This is important because it has implications for how RAW images are captured with this filter in place. The guide also says that you can use the exposure compensation control in full Auto mode, where that feature is actually disabled. However, these sorts of minor slips don't change the fact that I now feel like I "know" this camera, largely because of this guide.
I decided I wanted to learn to use the G12 and found this book on Amazon. It is a great book. Until I read the book, I had idea no of the vast amount features and settings the G12 has. It is a full featured camera just like the larger SLR cameras such as the Rebel. The book explains them all in detail. How to set the shutter speed, f/stop, scene modes and dozens of other things. The book is well written and very easy to understand (note: before I read the book, all I knew about cameras was to point and shoot and hope for a good picture. I am no photographer). If you own or are going to buy the G12, I would highly recommend getting the book to go with it. You won't be disappointed and will get so much more out of the amazing G12.
Another + for this book is the topic of Lens Add-Ons. The author not only covers Canon brand add-ons, but also includes OEM add-ons (other equipment manufacturer). This gives the reader additional choices for purchasing add-ons that the reader may not have known about prior to reading this publication. I have owned both Canon and OEM add-ons that work as well or better than the original manufacturer brand. Specific add-ons include conversion lens adapter and tele-converter adapter. David Busch also ties in the use of filters in this topic.
I could continue here but I think you get the point! This book is a must have for anyone serious about learning this camera! I have purchased publications of this type in the past, but this one has far exceeded my expectations. Please note that I am not affiliated with Canon or with this books author. I am a photographer looking to understand my new camera.
