Product description

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.

Format: Paperback
As suggested by the title, this book is aimed at people who have used digital cameras before, but have typically only used their Auto settings for exposure control and focussing. The book explains, in a clear and engaging way, that the Canon G10 and G11 cameras provide a whole array of useful controls which will allow the user to produce technically and artistically better photographs. The book's layout and scope is clear and logical, in sharp contrast to the rather random layout of the Canon User Guide. For me, the book filled in the necessary explanations as to WHY a particular mode or setting should be used, as opposed to the more prosaic HOW given in the User Guide. The book is written in an easy and engaging style, with lots of good example photos included to illustrate the explanations and advice. For anyone from a "point-and-shoot" background who is developing an interest in digital photography, this is an excellent guide to the use and the creative possibilities of the Canon G10 and G11 cameras.

An excellent book that gives informative instruction on how to use the manual modes and functions of the camera. It uses examples that are easy to understand and shows how you can apply them to your photography. It shows how you can apply different techniques and camera settings for different circumstances.

I recommend this book if you are trying to move away from just using the automatic settings and want to make the most of the manual functions.

I had fallen by the way-side in terms of using an SLR camera. All photo-taking dutied had been delegated to my oldest son. With his departure on his own travels, I had to take up the reins again but needed something to remind me of the basics and get me to use (nearly) all the features on my new camera. This did the trick nicely. It is well set-out, very informative and easy to read. Just what I needed. Our holidays photos reflect well on all I learnt from browsing through this book.

This book is excellent. Instructions are so easy to understand. I have a G12 ,and at the time there was no book for the G12 so I purchased the Canon Powershot G10/11 book I was not disapointed.

This is an excellent book, I have a Canon G9 and 99% of the content applies. I have experience of using the 'old film' SLR cameras and this gives great detail on the G9 controls, much better than the Canon instruction pdf. It illustrates the functions of the camera and also refreshes my knowledge of 'how' to take good photographs, bringing it into the current idiom leading to but not describing post processing. I found it an excellent read and did not put it down until it was finished. Better if read with your camera at your side, to practice on.

At last a book that explains how to use a camera, rather than just explaining its features like an instruction manual.
This is designed to give the user assignments, with each explaining how to properly set-up and achieve the best shots in each situation.
It's very easy to understand and I'm looking forward to working my way through it. I've had my camera for over a month now, but already I'm learning things I didn't know previously and my pictures are improving too.
Very useful, and also available for a number of other cameras too.

I do like this book and I did get some good information out of it. However, I think the book is best for someone who is using the G10/G11 to learn about DSLRs and not for someone who uses a DLSR as a primary camera and is using the G10/G11 as a travel camera with a good set of features, RAW, creative modes etc.
