I would like to say that I am an enthusiast photographer,so I have upgraded from an EOS 700D to the 70D.Reading the manual that comes with the camera is very daunting,as other people have written that they too have had the same problem.So reading all the reviews on different books I have decided to get Douglas Klostermann Canon 70D Experience . I read through it first very quickly to see what it was all about and then with camera in hand I followed through the pages and instructions etc . I have found it clear and well written sometimes it seems a bit overwhelming in parts but I can go back and re read what I found a bit hard to grasp .It has helped me get to know my Canon 70D ( very different than the 700D) and I can learn at my own pace and it is even better buying it on Kindle,I can take it everywhere with me,well recommended .
I'm pretty good with instructions (OK, so I read them from cover to cover before I even get started with using a product; I'm odd, I know) but having a new camera with an instruction manual that was quite comprehensive by today's 'read it on the CD' standards just didn't cut if for my Canon 70D. Sorry, Canon, either I'm getting slow in my old age, or your technical authors aren't quite as good as they used to be.
Enter Douglas Klostermann and his brilliant user guide. It's so easy to read, to understand, and to put into practice resulting in my using the features of my camera much more fully than I might have done otherwise. In fact it was so good that I dashed right off to see if he had written something similar for a Canon bridge camera that a friend has as I wanted to get it for her as a gift.
Even better is that I can take it everywhere with me by buying on Kindle and using the app on my phone. Amazon and Klostermann; a match made in heaven!
