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.

By David P. Distler on October 16, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It really bothers me that people actually go and buy a camera and never really learn how to use it. It seems to a status symbol. I always made it a point to see just what setting was being used. Probably 95 % of the time I saw either P or A. I even once heard a discussion about a new camera and how complicated the "instructions" were, "so I just keep it on automatic, the pictures are fantastic". To think they could have spent $200 instead of $800+ and take pictures that were just as fantastic. "An expensive Dslr makes me look like a real photographer." And digital photography allows practically anyone to shoot a good photo.

I didn't want to be one of those people. I had waited too long to buy my first Dslr camera. In the film days I carried around a Canon A-1 with a power winder and a 28- 250 zoom lens. It probably weighed 8 or 9 pounds, but took excellent photos. When digital cameras came on the scene they were small and light and did far more than my old A-1. When the first Dslr came out I was appalled at their size, weight and especially cost (around $1500-2000). So I waited for a small, light Dslr to hit the market. The Canon Rebel EOS SL1 is amazing but a little more than a novice Dslr (even though that is the category it was placed in) I decided that if I was going to spend that much for a great camera I better darn well learn how to use it to its full extent.

Mr. Busch's book is exactly what you need to squeeze every drop of performance from this fine camera and he leaves no stone unturned. he doesn't explain things he makes sure you learn them. I learned so much about this camera and about photography with this camera that I was in awe.

I got this camera as a gift and was instantly overwhelmed with the functions, found this book tailored to the camera and have already had several"oh,so that's what that does" moments .Lots of detailed photo illustrations with concise information. Will most likely buy the companion field guide as well .Kudos to the author for presenting in an understandable format for newbies.

Received an unexpected benefit when I purchased this book ... I was sent a signed copy by the author.

I have had other publications by this author and have never been disappointed with the purchase. I also purchased his field guide for this camera which is easy to pack with my equipment and is in a much more convenient size for field use.

David Busch's Canon EOS Rebel SL1/100D Guide to Digital SLR Photography is a fantastic book! Because this is my first DSLR camera, I knew that I needed a guide to understanding and learning about the different settings and functions. The chapters are very detailed and easy to follow. The figures and tables included in this book are very helpful. I haven't gone through all the chapters, but of what I've read and seen, I know that this book will teach me all that I need to know about my new camera.

I bought the camera after a lifetime of wanting an SLR camera. My son bought the Rebel T3i for his wife. I found it a little too intimidating and pricey for me. When the introduced the SL1, the timing and price were right. Now, how to use the advanced features, after a lifetime of point and shoot models. Et voila! Mr. Busch publishes this excellent guide. Admittedly, I have only made it through the intro and chapter 1, but that is why I am writing this now. Mr. Busch writes with such an easy, conversational style, that it makes you want to go on. I'm giving it 5 stars as a guide for a neophyte such as I, but I believe even experienced DSLR users will find useful info in this book.

I haven't quite finished it yet but this is a must read for the SL1 and/or SLR newbies. Busch does an excellent job "dumbing" it down with his language and pictures. He really knows his stuff.
