From the Author
This book was delayed for a few weeks to allow us to incorporate detailed information on the changes made to the camera's menu system and extra features added by the firmware updates 2.0 and 3.0. It provides information on all the camera's features, including the brand new ones introduced during the October 2014 and February 2015 camera updates.
About the Author
His mother gave him a Brownie Hawkeye camera in 1968 at the young age of 10 years and awakened a lifelong interest in capturing slices of time. Living in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains--near Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway--has given him a real concern for the natural environment and a deep interest in nature photography. You'll often find Darrell standing behind a tripod in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina.
Since about 2000 Darrell has been an active blogger and article writer on photographic subjects. In 2008 his first photography book was published and, since then, he has authored over a dozen books on the technical side of photography, with a special interest in helping new photographers fully understand their complex cameras so they can use them for more effective and enjoyable photography.

To get the value from this camera one must learn how to configure it for easy access to its capabilities without using the touch screen! I am a pretty advanced camera user ( highly skilled but not professional) and can usually pick up a camera and figure out most of the basic stuff without much challenge. Same for this camera, however to use the camera for my intent requires accessing the advanced features, configuring buttons and levers, all without using the touch screen. Thanks to this book I've shortened my learning curve and then some. This book has exceeded my expectations! One other note - rather than re-state the things that ARE in the manual, this book (e version) provides links to the appropriate tables and content
Thank you to Darrell for such a comprehensive and well organized book.
That said, this is a "helicopter" book. You skim over it and then drop into it and get information you need or want about a particular item. The format is a bit confusing, sometimes you have to jump from one section to another (at the author's direction) to get the full description of how some features operate, but it's there.
If you are serious about photography, have some time to "play" with your camera and to practice the procedures he gives you, multiple times so that they sink into your brain (for example, how the EM-1 stores a custom white balance), then you will find this book will advance your skills significantly.
