4.0 out of 5 stars A handy guide for the Canon 1100D camera 27 Nov. 2011
Format:Paperback
This book dscribes all of the Canon 1100D's controls and functions in a clear and very readable way together with explanations of what they do how to use them. Good colour illustrations abound, showing what you can achieve with the different settings and effects, and there is plenty of 'how to do it' advice as well as ideas on improving your photographic skills in using the camera's extensive capabilities. As a "Field Guide" it may be a bit big for your jacket pocket, but should easily go in the bag, and you would only realise that its an American publication when you see 'color' rather than 'colour' - which matters not at all for this well written book. I'm glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars First class step by step 23 Oct. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I reluctantly bought this book. I always think I can get the best by doing it myself. Finally I have decided that my photos leave a lot to be desired. This book really takes a novice from nothing to quiet proficiency. It amazed me how they get so much packed into the camera - a lot of it hidden from view.
Apart from the map of the camera's workings she also explains quite straight forwardly exactly what you need to do to take a good photograph - mechanically that is. ISO, shutter speed etc.
It's a bit bulky to cart out with you but big enough so that you aren't squinting trying to read it. Well worth it if you want to get the most out of the camera and you aren't too well up on photography. She assumes nothing!

Update. After the first chapter it may be wise to read Chapter 9 as she explains the four conditions needed to get a good photo and how this relates to the Eos 1100D. It's mainly about the setting which is halfway between automatic and total manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book. 19 Jun. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is so well constructed and clearly was well thought out. Precise information and detailed explanations with comparative colour photographs of the same photos taken with different settings. The author clearly knows her subject well and, apart from explaining the intricate details of the 1100d camera, she also explains the fundamentals of photography in simple layman's terms that make understanding the fundamentals of photography so easy to understand. This book is invaluable to me.
