Format: Paperback
I was rather hoping that this book would be an in depth explanation of all the menu options and features common to Canon DSLR's. A way of really getting down into the fine detail and advanced features available on these rather amazing little pieces of equipment. It is actually more like a general introduction to digital photography with references to how the various topics relate to Canons. It certainly isn't "in depth" as the Product Description above says. For instance I couldn't find any mention of the "mirror lock up" function which is essential if you are interested in taking long exposures, as I am. This book would probably be OK for a complete novice buying a Canon DSLR for the first time but for someone who has advanced beyond the novice stage I found it a bit disappointing.

Like other reviewers before me I was more than a little disappointed with this book.
The title gives the impression that you are buying a book that deals specifically with the Canon range of DSLR's, but you could easily replace the name Canon, in the title, with Nikon or Sony or Panasonic or indeed any camera make you wish, because the book would still be as useful (or useless depending on your view).
The reason I say this is that, even with hundreds of beautifully shot pictures throughout the book, there are no more than a half dozen of them showing the features of the Canon range specifically, and very few words that couldn't be used for any make of camera on the market.
I have recently purchased my first DSLR, a Canon 400D, and was looking for a book that would tell the effects that I could achieve with it, and show me how to achieve them. This book did not deliver.
Save your money and look for a better book dedicated to the Canon range.
Very, very disappointed.
