This is partly as the OM-D E-M5ii has a complicated user interface, but it's also testament to the usefulness of the book. The thing I really appreciate about this book is how it is clearly written by an enthusiastric photographer with enthusiastic photographers in mind. The printing is clear and high quality-paper is used, not the fragile rough "paperback" paper that is being used increasingly in budget reference books. Also appreciate is the fact that there's no fat in this book to be skimmed through, no tedious mini-autobiography from the author shoe-horned into the opening chapter. After some very detailed control location reference pages, page 9 appears.
Page 9 is a key page in the book, as it lists the most critical functions for immediate configuration, and encourages you to work your way down the list, jumping to the relevant part of the book to be taught about the effect and setting each function so you can then set it as you feel appropriate. This function index page works excellently and allowed me to quickly set up the basics for my camera before I'd got halfway down. (For example the default JPEG compression setting is "fine", not "super-fine" as I wanted. Try finding that setting without a guide!)
I can't oversell this function index as a positive feature of the book, it transforms the usefulness of the book and transforms what could have been a detail-heavy nightmare of a book into what can best be described as a book with Google built in.Read more ›
I was surprised, being used to a variety of cameras, how much extra this book revealed. From the outset it recommends settings for the basics so that you can use it with confidence. It goes on to cover more detail and settings, all with explanations and recommendations. I could have "played" with the camera for months and not uncovered some of the features that are revealed by this book. I suspect that even what I could have found for myself would have been part forgotten in time whereas having this book also serves as a reference point.
