In the main, my issues haven't been with the 5D they have been with my photography skills. It isd a decent reference guide in a font that can be read. I have been checking the "how tos" on Youtube and then using this to find specific settings on menus. The canon layout isn't intuitive
For £12 you are getting a decent reference, printed on proper paper and with some hints and tips. My view is that you could be a fantastic photographer but you may never find the settings you are looking for without some help so it is
To understand why, please see my comments on the author's companion volume -- his Field Guide to the same camera.
The "Field Guide" is inevitably cut down in coverage so that the book remains portable. But the much larger (and heavier!) Guide covers everything I could have hoped for.
