4.0 out of 5 stars Great improvement over the manual, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off I would have given this 5 stars were it not for the fact that the first chapter is headed The NEX-6 Top Ten List! Now in the ordinary print world a mistake like this would have the book sent to the discount remainder chains yet the publisher here has the cheek to charge almost the full price for the still wrong e book version (which you'd think would not be a difficult thing to rectify). Shame on them.

Anyway rant over, Rob's book is well structured & illustrated. It also serves as a pretty nifty guide to the elements of photography. There isn't much new here for those of us who've been reading photo mags for too long to remember, but for someone starting out it's a pretty good guide imo.

The panasonic guide books are famed for their impenatrability & although the gx7's is better than earlier mysteries like the gxi manual this book will help you get to what you need to know much quicker.

All in all a definite reccomendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for the Drones, 31 Jan. 2014
Who could have known that when Amazon were testing their unmanned drone deliveries that the system would become self aware (29 Aug 2013 in case you wanted to know), and began learning at an alarming rate, mostly from wikipedia wherein they discovered the secrets of temporal mechanics and began delivering unreleased dvds back in time to lucky reviewers such as myself.

And what a delight this series is. My favourite episode was "Somebody Else's Problem" which had a reanimated Douglas Adams clutching a script of Shada wandering the Tardis. Sadly no one could see him....

The guest appearances were great. I particularly liked hugh Jackman in the penultimate episode Bad Wolf.

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful mockumentary, 7 Dec. 2012

This series is a gem. Before the office there was Roy.

What a pity it may well be the last item I buy from Amazon unless they start paying a reasonable tax on the billions of revenue generated here in the UK.

Perhaps Roy Mallard should investigate?
