5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent handbook even for photographers with a bit of experience - great introduction to making the most of your camera
I've been interested in photography for many years on and off and owned a series of SLRs from film to digital. Therefore most of the information in this book was not new to me. However having it clarified, or being reminded, of how to make use of the various camera settings is very useful. I realised that I was not making use of the white balance, and exposure modes as...

Good info for people new to using a DSLR but as I previously owned the 600D It didn't really offer a great deal that I already knew. I suppose the title says it all really, snapshots to great shots and not great shots to professional masterpeices. lol.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent handbook even for photographers with a bit of experience - great introduction to making the most of your camera, 4 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)
I've been interested in photography for many years on and off and owned a series of SLRs from film to digital. Therefore most of the information in this book was not new to me. However having it clarified, or being reminded, of how to make use of the various camera settings is very useful. I realised that I was not making use of the white balance, and exposure modes as much as I should, probably partly because my techniques had not changed much since the move from film 10 years ago.

If you just want to know how to work the camera the manuals are fine. If you actually want some advice on how to use it and apply the various settings then this is an excellent introduction. The author has a nice style and the presentation of the book and the photos included are attractive. I would think this book would be useful for people with other dSLRs too, not just the 70D, although the technical details are obviously aimed at this model.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)
I bought 3 books of Amazon as I just bought a new Canon 70d.

You really need to read a book and so much to learn..

I can't comment on the reading of the book as it will take a while to read.

However, I have flicked thru it and it looks good and easy on the eye to read and view.

Very nice colour photos and large text all spaced out... the sections seem easily explained with photos.

I paid £10.78 delivered....which is good value... Amazon's own price is £15.99!
I wouldn't get a kindle version... really no point.....lovely book to own...

Updated - 9thFeb - 2014
-----------------------
Out of the 3 books I purchased.. this is now my favourite book...
It has a really nice feel, look & style about it.. and the size of book is nice..

This is a must have for anyone owning a Canon 70D....the pictures inside make you want to stop reading and to get out and shoot...
10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough, easy to understand, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a complete novice as far as this camera is concerned, and this book has been an absolute godsend! So far I've recorded some great footage, but I've only just used a fraction of the camera's capability. This book is slowly taking me through it all, step by step. It'll be a long journey because I keep going back to re-read whole chapters (okay, I'm a slow learner!!), but it's SO worth it. Very happy with the purchase.

This is a clear and colourful book for Canon EOS 70D owners that gives full details of not only settings for all occasions but the reasons behind those choices. The book explains why to use the many functions of the 70D to get the desired results. A great buy.

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)
I have the Nikon Version of this book and bought the Canon one as a gift for my brother who was lucky enough to get the EOS 70D camera as a birthday present. It's a very well written, descriptive book and gives very clear guidance on how to get the best out of your camera. Describes very well how to do all the settings which can be a bit daunting on a new camera. Very easy to refer to,

An easy to follow and well illustrated guide to using the 70D - does not assume any level of competence. Useful exercises at the end of each section to re-enforce the learning points.
