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.

Format: Paperback
From reading reviews of alternative books on EOS 7D I got the impression that most were revamps of the user guide that came with the camera. That was until I came across David Busch's manual. As I wanted as much technical information as possible I bought this book and I am very pleased with it. It is easy to be negative in a review and I shall only point out minor issues: One is that that the book is quite heavy. However, it is beautfully presented with many detailed illustrations that I keep coming back to. I like the amount of details in the descriptions that explains many features of the camera that are sometimes difficult to get your head around. Having studied the book (and there are still parts that I have not yet had time to study) I realize how many features the EOS 7D has. Sometimes when reading the book - I use it as a manual to get to understand each camera feature - I find that I have to move from a basic description in the beginning of the book to more advanced explanations much later. This I find a little irksome but the key thing is that the information is usually there and in great detail.

So, in conclusion I love the book and would recommend it to anybody who really wants to know what is going on when you press the button on the camera.
Go and buy it.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book in every way - it covers all the things you want to know, with very clear diagrams and photos. If you already know a lot about photography (and if you own a 7D you probably do) you may find some things aimed more at the newcomer, but it is easy to skip them. It's all a lot easier than looking up each item in the manual, particularly the custom settings. I find it is a book you can use for reference or just browse when you feel like it. Top marks, and streets ahead of the average camera guide book.

One word of warning though: Amazon have a faulty batch of these books, in which 16 pages are missing, and 16 pages are repeated. I tried three times to get a good copy, but in the end had to buy it elsewhere. If you get a faulty copy, the chances are that any replacement will also be faulty. They are not going to check every page before bunging it in the post. So when you open it, check that all the pages are there.

This is an excellent guide to the 7D. Clear, concise and very well illustrated.
My previous guide (for the 40D) was Canon EOS 40D Digital Field Guide [Paperback]
Charlotte K. Lowrie which was ok but not a patch on David Busch's work. (I have not seen her 7D Guide)
For a beginner to someone with a bit of experience - he covers the lot.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book - well written and illustrated. The author is a well respected and seasoned writer of high quality camera books. The illustrations are well designed and the content allows the reader to quickly experiment with the sophisticated Cannon 7D. Camera books are often crammed full of technical jargon and can be very daunting for the novice. This book manages to engage the novice while providing the more advanced user ample tuition in the the cameras advanced features. Highly recommended.

Don't understand how people manage without his book, they are so comprehensive and explain far more than the silly little (in my case photocopied and stapled by hand) book that comes with the camera. Brilliant book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is stunning and is a perfect buy for (like me) new 7D owners but I am sure everyone could learn from this book. Well illustrated and the illustrations are next to the text and not 20 pages away. Very plain and simple language, no geek-speak and it is a photography course on its own. Don't read this without having your camera close by. Slightly repetitive but the 7D has so many double-feature buttons and dials it cannot avoid this. A beautifully presented, clear, concise,easy-to-read masterpiece which is a must-buy!

Format: Paperback
Having had a Canon D400 for many years I decided it was time to upgrade . I thought that I was going to go fullframe initially but ended up being swayed by the D7 . I decided to make sure I was getting the best out of this complex camera so searched the internet for something a little more instructive than the supplied manual.
This book certainly fits the remit , the text despite dealing with much technical detail is quite easy to read .This perhaps is because it reads as if someone is actually speaking directly to you.
To highlight the 'speaking' there are colour shots of the subject involved in the 'conversation'. All very useful and i did learn a few things about the camera beyond what I had already discovered by playing with it myself.
The book delves deep into the menus and explains how and why as well as the functions of the camera .
I read of the odd mistake in other reviews , this may be so but overall the advice given is extremely good and the book is in my eyes the best available on the market at the moment .
It is a volume of some size ...you are unlikely to carry it around with you .....so much of the learning will be done at home .
Overall , a good buy and a suprisingly easy read ...an essential for those moving up from an entry level camera. Without this book those menus on the camera would be really difficult to understand the settings or the need for altering them .
If you want a book to help you out then this one is noyt likely to disappoint .
