Book Description

27 April 2011
The Canon EOS 60D replaces the previous 50D model and is targeted at advanced photo hobbyists looking for sophisticated features. Smaller than its predecessor and with 18 megapixel resolution and an articulated color LCD, the 60D is an upscale, affordable, advanced dSLR for those who want faster continuous shooting frame rates and an advanced exposure metering system. "David Busch's Canon EOS 60D Guide to Digital SLR Photography" shows you how, when, and why to use all the cool features, controls, and functions of the 60D to take great photographs of anything. Introductory chapters will help you get comfortable with the basics of your camera before you dive right into exploring creative ways to apply 60D file formats, resolution, aperture/priority exposure, and automatic exposure features. Beautiful, full-color images illustrate where the essential buttons and dials are, so you'll quickly learn how to use your 60D, and use it like a pro.

More About the Author

With more than a million copies of his 100-plus books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling author of camera-specific guidebooks, and the originator of popular series like David Busch's Pro Secrets, David Busch's Quick Snap Guides, and David Busch's Guides to Digital SLR Photography.

His twelve hugely successful books for Nikon digital cameras are the top-selling guidebooks for their respective camera models. He has also written the most comprehensive and best-selling guides for many different models from Canon, Sony, Pentax, and other vendors.

Busch's dozens of other books devoted to digital photography include Digital SLR Cameras and Photography for Dummies, David Busch's Digital Infrared Pro Secrets and Mastering Digital SLR Photography. As a roving photojournalist for more than 20 years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. Busch has 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.

The graduate of Kent State University in Ohio operated his own photo studio and was a principal in one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, California, working on press conferences, press kits, media tours, and sponsored photo trade magazine articles for clients including Eastman Kodak Company and Hewlett-Packard. Busch has published more than 2000 photography articles under his by-line in more than 100 different publications. His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising.

Busch has become one of the leading photojournalist/authors worldwide. He has had as many as five books appear simultaneously in the Amazon.com Top 25 Digital Photography Books, and when Michael Carr of About.com named the top five digital photography books for beginners, the #1 and #2 choices were his Digital Photography All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography.

Busch was a featured guest speaking on digital photography on Toronto's Breakfast Television show, has been a call-in guest for more than two dozen radio shows in major US markets, and his advice has been featured in the United States' National Public Radio's All Things Considered programme. His work has been translated into Arabic, Czech, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Bulgarian, German, Italian, French, and other languages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great insight! 1 Oct 2011
I recently bought this Guide and I love it! Gave me great insight about my recently bought Canon 60D. It's easy, illustrated with simple , direct photos. The text ist's also easy, for everyone to understant it , without the «pro» talk that you can find in many mauals and guides like this one. Remind that this is not a guide of «How to take great pics»-There are other books for that! It's a guide about the camera only and it's possibilities and , how to relate to your camera. If you want to understand your camera, this it , you can't fail.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful title 23 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book promised to fill in why you use particular settings to extend the information in the EOS60D manual. It achieves this and more in a straightforward way and is a very good read at the same time. I have no hesitation in rating it all five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Manual 26 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was taken aback when this book arrived by the sheer size of the volume. 460 pages on good quality paper makes for a large paperback and my first thought was 'will the book fall apart after opening a few times'. So far, so good, it is quite sturdily bound and has stood up well to a lot of use. It is a comprehensive manual covering every aspect of the 60D in a language that everyone should be able to understand. All references to the menus are supported by large illustrations showing the aspect of the menu being referred to. Being an American publication there are some references to U.S suppliers of accessories but all in all I have found this a very helpful book with many chapters I have yet to explore. Anyone new to DSLRS or unused to using the manual controls of the camera will find the book a great help.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best I have read 3 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read numerous books about camera equipment I have purchased in the past, and this one is probably the best one I have come across. I actually bought this book because I had just acquired a copy of the book about the Canon Powershot G1X from the same author and that is also an excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars david busch,s canon eos 60d guide book 3 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
wow what a big book !! so far is ok well written, and as has been mentioned before the references to american products are the only downside one can nitpick from this book, otherwise it would come in handy if you were attacked as a defensive weapon, not one to carry in the field but on the whole a quality product.

5.0 out of 5 stars EOS60D Guide 22 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very useful with loads of tips. Set out in a logical order for easy reading and reference when needed. Only downside is it is not exactly pocket sized but that is the price you pay for all the info packed in. I'd recommend this book if you're new to the EOS60D.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Busch`s Canon Eos 60 D 11 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David`s book,Canon Eos 60D,is a must for all 60 D owners,its packed with information for the novice and the more expert photographer.
The manual that comes with Canon cameras is OK but small and difficult to read.
David`s book is large and well bound,so it will not fall apart after a couple of days.
The information,tips and help go much farther than the manual.
Every action of the camera,and photography in general,is explained in easy to follow detail.
I would recommend this book to anybody with a Eos 60D.

Makes it much clearer how to use the camera than Canon's own instructions. A reference book well worth having.

I bought this book with not great expectations but it is very detailled and informative and concentrates purely on the camera not on photography in general.
