Product Description

From the Back Cover

The successor to Canon's popular EOS 50D DSLR, the Canon 60D is a powerful camera intended for advanced amateurs to semi-professionals who want to jump into photography with the control and capabilities of a DSLR--but without the high price. There's the manual, of course, as well as competing books, and while they all explain, often in 400+ pages, what the camera can do, none of them shows exactly how to use the camera to create great images!

This book has one goal: to teach Canon 60D owners how to make great shots using your camera. Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the 60D--charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more--professional photographer Nicole S. Young then carefully guides you through the modes of the camera, offering practical advice on choosing your settings, expert shooting tips, and end-of-chapter "challenges" to get you up and running with your 60D.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a readable and particularly well-illustrated book - could it be otherwise with that title? The typical intended readership is one "who wants to upgrade from a point-and-shoot" ie one who may be new to the more technical aspects of photography and the terminology. So the language is informal (I'm sure I spotted "cool" - and not in relation to colour temperature !) and the pictures are gripping. The Canon 60D does come supplied with an excellent pocket-sized 300-page instruction manual and there isn't really a desperate need for a "how-to" guide but this gets away with it by blending the how-to bits with impressive and apt images. This book may not have as long a useful life as for example Charlotte Lowrie's 60D Digital Field Guide (mine of information for the long haul), but for the less-experienced photographer (and maybe others who need a visual reminder of what it's all about), it should work a treat.

Format: Paperback
I'm not stupid when it comes to cameras and photography, just old school. Old being the operative word here having taken photographs for over fifty years starting long before the setting "auto" was invented. I understand all about the relationship between speed, aperture, ISO and depth of field so why would I want to read a book like this? I finally bought my first digital SLR, a Canon EOS 60D, that's why! I read the Canon manual, as dry as the Sahara, excellent for insomniacs trying to fall asleep, functional but uninspiring and I'm no stranger to equipment manuals having written such tombs as "Assembly Instructions for a Centurian Tank Gearbox" or "Understanding Your Computerised Stock Control System".

This book is written in simple terms and helps you find your way around the Canon EOS 60D menu system far better than the manual. For those of you who are as familiar with photography as I am it helps you to understand and find the various hidden settings and inspires you to go out and try the techniques learned in each chapter and for those of you who are beginners it also helps you understand the relationship between the four key elements of taking a good photograph. Read it in bed at your peril, it will keep you awake and have you setting your alarm to catch the golden hour of dawn.

Now where's the Canon manual, I think it's time for my afternoon nap!

Format: Paperback
It's a cheap book but a very interesting one. Simple, objective with the information and have very nice tips. If you have bought a 60D and you are a little lost with all the settings (and you don't like too much «tecnicality» and pro talk) this is a good way to understand your Canon.
Sometimes the Canon manual can be dificult to understand properly , with this book you'll get there easily. Just read it and go shoot!

A great introduction to concepts and the camera. I had the camera for a while before getting this, and the pictures I have produced since reading it are significantly better than those taken before.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Im pretty new to photography so needed something that would help me get to grips with my camera in a format that was easy to understand. Even though the manual that came with the camera is good, this book expands on all the functions you are likely to use with illustrations and clear narrative when to use certain settings for certain subjects and conditions. It's not completely detailed there are functions that the EOS60D has that it doesn't cover however all in all well worth the money, it's certainly a useful book when starting out.
