2.0 out of 5 stars Not very 5D Mark III specific. Oct. 24 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have previously used the Snapshots to Great Shots book on the Canon T1i and found it to be very usefull. It explained many of the capabilities of the camera and gave suggestions as to how to use them to take better shots.

I was disappointed by the Canon 5D Mark III: From Snapshots to Great Shots as it could have been written about any camera. It explained how to take better photographs in general, but it didn't explain how to use the advanced features of the 5D3 to best advantage. There was virtually nothing about how to customize the camera and how to use the advanced autofocus system to best advantage.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too simplistic Aug. 15 2012
By BadButtons - Published on
A good book if you've just bought your 5D Mark III and know very little about DSLRs in general.
However if you've owned the camera for 2 months and have read the manual (well, a lot of it) and you are hoping for new insights you'll be sorely disappointed.
Otherwise the book is attractive and reasonably well written.
The sort of person who buys a $3500 dollar camera might be assumed to make the effort to read the manual in which case there are probably better books to be had.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read this review before buying! Not a good book! Sept. 15 2012
By canonphotog - Published on
This book is a waste of time for a professional photographer. It explains how to use manual, composition, and aperture. It doesn't include how to use the focus points or even focus on some of the features specific to the 5D Mark iii. It only uses the 5DMarkiii name in the title to sell more copies. It really should be called 'Digital photography for beginners'. I almost ordered this, but flipped through it in a book store before hand. So glad I did. It is not a 'how to better use the 5D Mark iii' book you are looking for here. It is an insult to any professional photographer, since anyone who owns a Canon 5d Mark iii should be able to compose a picture well, much less use the manual mode. It would be good for someone starting out in photography, but not a professional.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Title Oct. 14 2012

Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
I purchased the DVD with the idea that it would help me use and understand the canon 5Diii. What I receive was a DVD that was more geared toward photography with any camera. Very disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Helpful for beginners but probably not for most 5d users Aug. 28 2012
By GernBlanston - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First off, it is a beautiful-looking book. It just wasn't very helpful to me and, I suspect, it would not be very informative for many 5d purchasers. The book reads, content-wise, like a primer for someone new to DSLRs. Given the cost of the 5d, it is not likely to be many people's first camera. There are better primers on the general topics of composition and exposure, as well as better books on the specific functions/benefits of the 5d mkiii compared to other DSLRs. So, ultimately I cannot recommend the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Overly simplistic Sept. 24 2012
By Wester - Published on
This book is on such an elementary level it will literally put you to sleep. It has some good reminders on the importance of lighting basics and positioning but for anyone who spends $3,500 on a state of the art digital DSLR camera the books topics are inadequate.
