Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book has one goal: to teach Canon 7D owners how to make great shots using your camera. Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the 7D — charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more — professional photographer Nicole S. Young then carefully guides you through the modes of the camera, offering practical advice on choosing your settings, expert shooting tips, and end-of-chapter “challenges” to get you up and running with your 7D. This book is for anyone who has upgraded from a point-and-shoot, or who wants to jump right into photography with the control and capabilities of a powerful DSLR.

Canon 7D: From Snapshots to Great Shotsshows not only what makes a great shot work — but how to get that shot using your 7D. Follow along with your friendly and knowledgeable guide, photographer and author Nicole S. Young, and you will:

Format: Paperback
This is a really useful book for anyone wanting to understand how to properly use their 7D. Even if most of the book focuses on stills, the info is really useful when starting to shoot video. I had exposition issues when filming on a chroma screen, but now understand better how my camera operates, so I can create beautiful quality videos.

A very good guide, Canon should include this book with the camera when purchased. I have owned many cameras through the years and have spent a lot of time searching the manual (perhaps I am a bit dense). With this book you end up thinking, "so that how that works".
