I am only a keen amateur photographer & last time I had a pro standard model it was Film (Nikon F4) & using the 5D2 I have done wedding photography & been pleased, as the Bride & Groom were, with the results but always felt there was something more to know about this camera.
I have only just completed 6 chapters which covers Getting to Know the 5D2 (1-3) & Beyond Basics (4-6). The interesting chapters are yet to be read Advanced Tools (7-11) & Enhancing Your Experience (12-13)
You may ask, "Why read the early (Basic) chapters?" Well I just did not want to miss anything David Busch may have to say & I dot not think I am beyond learning new bits & pieces no matter how well I may think I know the 5D2 & certainly glad I did as there were a few little bits I picked up from these early chapters. I am very keen to sit down & get into the next section of this book to learn in depth knowledge on the model.
If the earlier chapters were anything to go by then the 2nd half should be mind blowing. Don't think anyone will be disappointed with this book,
Well done David Busch. Thank you....
I'm pleased I waited and didn't buy one of the competitor publications, that, judging from reviews, appear to be padded out versions of the Canon manual.
This book is informative, well laid out, and I've found information therein easy to find, and useful also, AND actually adds to what's in the Canon manual!
This book is invaluable information. Clearly sets out the basics and goes onto the advanced. Has really helped me to work out how to use my new camera, and will travel with me until I know as much about my camera as is contained in the book.
