5.0 out of 5 stars David Busch - Camera Guides 16 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second camera guide I have bought by David Busch,the first was on a Nikon DSLR. This is an equally outstanding book. The format is logical and leads the non-expert through all aspects of a newly purchased camera and it's capabilites, in depth but with great clarity that enables the book to used as a field guide as well. As far as I am concerned, if a new camera has a guide written by David Busch, his guide is an essential purchase, preferably just before you get your hands on the camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for either the G10 or G11 11 Mar 2010
By D. Rader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a Canon G11 and have a couple other books on the camera. I was reluctant to buy this book at first because I generally try to purchase guides that are specific to the model I own just to cut down on confusion. Don't let that stop you from buying this book! There is much in common between the G10 and G11 and the author does a great job of clearly pointing out the differences where they do exist.

The thing that I most like about this book is that not only does it tell you the function of every button and menu setting on your camera but it goes on to tell you why you may or may not want to use a particular setting in various shooting situations. The author is not dogmatic. He states his opinions but leaves you to draw your own conclusions.

I also really like the way the book is structured. The early chapters get you up to speed quickly so you can get out and take some pictures, which is why you bought this camera in the first place. When you start using the camera you will undoubtedly have more questions about some of the more advanced options on these very flexible cameras. The middle chapters go on to explain the functionality of the camera features in greater detail. The later chapters cover more general photography subjects like exposure, depth of field, flash use, etc., but geared toward these cameras specifically. There is also a pretty good run down of the accessories available as well as the included software apps.

It is a larger book than the guides intended to throw in your camera bag but the extra size and weight are put to good use. If I could only own one book on my G11 this one would be it. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 7 May 2010
By W. Knorr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is the best supplemental manual for a camera model that I have ever seen. It reads very well, is well indexed, and best of all, offers insight and examples of the utility of many of the settings. I have the G11, and this manual is essential reading. 5 stars. Bill Knorr

4.0 out of 5 stars G10 and G11 19 Jun 2010
By Conrad J. Obregon - Published on Amazon.com
Both for people interested in moving up to a camera that gives them more control than a point-and-shoot camera and for serious photographers interested in finding a more convenient walk-around camera than a digital single lens reflex camera, the Canon G10 and G11 (the cameras are quite similar) offer attractive options. Unfortunately, making the switch to a new set of controls and menus can be quite painful, especially given the instruction manuals that come with these cameras, because the manuals are amongst the most poorly organized of those for electronic devices. David Busch tries to make it easier for G10/G11 users to understand how to control the camera.

After briefly extolling the virtues of the G10/G11, the author begins with an exploration of most of the features of the cameras, both hardware and software, often including some explanation of the function of the different controls. In a subsequent chapter he goes into greater details on the several menu settings found on the cameras, offering a listing of considerations for the settings, and occasionally a recommendation. Busch then goes into discussions of exposure, focusing, zooming and light including flash. He finishes up with a very brief discussion of downloading and processing images.

The book goes from the general to the more specific, its goal being to get the reader capturing images as quickly as possible and then to develop additional skills. Although this may sometimes appear repetitive, it is useful for getting a handle on the menus and controls available.

Unfortunately one of the most critical elements in using the cameras is ignored. Unlike most point-and-shoots, the G10 and G11 allow the user to adjust aperture and shutter speed. The authors frequently refer to setting one or the other but, except for the description of fine tuning manual mode and a reference under long exposures, never tell the reader how to do that! (When in aperture (Av) or shutter (Tv) mode, a symbol will appear showing the current setting; turning the control dial will change the setting and call up a neat menu showing the settings. In fact the various uses of the control dial are poorly treated throughout.) Another advantage of the G10/G11 is the series of icons that appear on the LCD that show you the status of various settings and operations. Several of these icons are not explained.

The G10 and G11 are powerful cameras that enable the user to exercise substantial control over images. This book will help you to understand how to do that far better than the manuals that come with the cameras, but even so, the book does not cover everything essential for that control.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is Also Relevant to the Canon Powershot G9 20 July 2010
By TD MCBETH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I could not find any equivalent publication for the earlier Canon Powershot G9, so I gave this manual a try.
While some of the information is obviously not relevant for the G9, the vast bulk of it is.
So it did fill the gap between the tiny handbook that comes with the camera which even if you could read the detail provides no recommendations on the best options to consider, and a book that is comprehensive and has enabled me to improve my use of the G9 significantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent G11 Guide 11 July 2010
By M. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased the Canon G11 and knew that I would need a guide to supplement the user's manual. After studying the various 3rd party guides for sale on Amazon (and the reviews written by users), I decided on David Busch's book. Turned out to be a good choice! It is clearly written, easily understandable, and very complete. I doubt that any of the other guides would have been a better choice. It is an excellent guide for the G10 and G11.
