From the Back Cover
The Canon PowerShot G10 and G11 are powerful cameras that are the preferred advanced point and shoot cameras for professional photographers and hobbyists who want both the convenience of a compact camera with the capabilities of a DSLR. Key features include: the ability to shoot in modes such as aperture priority, shutter priority, and full manual, as well the key distinction (among point and shoot cameras) of being able to shoot in the RAW file format.
This book is for anyone who wants to get the best shots possible but isn't sure what to do next. There's the manual, as well as competing books, and while they all tell camera owners, often in 400+ pages, what the camera can do, none of them shows them exactly how to use their camera to create great images! Everything in the book is in service of creating a great image. The author carefully guides readers through the modes of the camera and gives practical advice from a pro on which settings to use when, shooting tips, and even end-of-chapter assignments so readers can test their knowledge.
