Brilliant - a must have,
This review is from: Magic Lantern Guides®: Canon PowerShot G12 (Paperback)
I requested and got this book for Christmas. It is fantastic. I have had my camera for a few months; had a Canon G5 before. I understand photography, but the features of modern cameras are many and varied. I had looked at the various menus and their entries, but there were numerous things that I didn't quite understand, so didn't use. This book helps you make the best use of camera facilities and offers advice and information that are real gems. Simple things, really, but they don't look like that when you are confronted by a menu system with numerous options. This book makes the complex menu system understandable, highlighting the capabilities' application, benefits and drawbacks. Within minutes of reading this, I had learned a couple of gems and am now using the camera to its fullest extent after just a few hours' reading and application. I am rereading it to make sure I have fully absorbed its content and have already recommended this series of books twice. Regardless of whether you understand photography or not, get one of these books. You won't regret it.
