5.0 out of 5 stars Notes on David Busch book on Cannon EOS 7D
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:...

1.0 out of 5 stars misprinted pages
bought this as i have had other of this authors guides over the years. problem was that a number of pages ( 138 to 163 ) were dupicated further in the book ( from page 173) and what should have been there ( 173 to to 198 ) were missing . this is certainly the publishers fault and in no way reflects on the author or content . i ended up returning two copies with this...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but contains at least one mistake, 6 July 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: David Busch's Canon EOS 7D Guide to Digital SLR Photography (David Busch's Digital Photography Guides) (Paperback)
A fairly comprehensive book with clear illustrations. I was doing fine with it until I found a mistake.
It is in the advanced settings live view section where it explains how to operate the quick mode focussing. Item no. 3. page 144 titled "Choose AF point" it instructs you to "Press the AF-DRIVE button". This gets you nowhere.
This is completely wrong. It took a little research into the Canon manual to discover that the instruction should be to press the Q button then use the "joy stick" to select the AF point. This works, as it should coming from the official manual.
This may be the only mistake, but I have only just dipped into the book so far, and I am hoping there are no other incorrect entries, as it seems to defeat the purpose of buying an extended manual to make things clearer, when it seems to do the opposite.
