I bought the Olympus camera to enable me to manually control the aperature and shutter speed for capturing higher qualitly photos of my art work. Before I had the book I spent five hours shooting my work and was still not very pleased with the results. The book helped me learn more about special options on the camera and with these options I was able to very quickly resolve the issues I had been having and get exceptional photo's of my art work. For me it was a matter of over riding the image stabelizer feature. Something that didn't occur to me, even though I was using a tripod. This made all the difference and was information I would never have gleaned from the manual.
So yeah, I now own a book for Dummies and I am pleased.
The way things are presented is very pleasant, easy to read and very clear. It has lots of photographs to show how to do it.
you will not regret buying this book.
Although this title is for the PEN E-PL1, I found that in almost cases the same settings and usage applies to the EPM-1. It shows how to access and use features in the hidden depths of the settings. Thanks to the clear explanations and illustrations I now have a thorough working knowledge of my camera and am able to get out of the "AUTO" setting.
Really very pleased indeed with this book.
