About the Author

With more than a million books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling digital camera guide author, and the originator of popular digital photography series like David Busch's Pro Secrets and David Busch's Quick Snap Guides. He has written more than a dozen hugely successful guidebooks for Canon and Canon digital SLR models, as well as many popular books devoted to dSLRs, including Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Second Edition, and Digital SLR Pro Secrets. As a roving photojournalist for more than twenty years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. He's operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college. His photos and articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He has also reviewed dozens of digital cameras for CNet and Computer Shopper, and his advice has been featured in National Public Radio's "All Tech Considered." When About.com named its top five books on Beginning Digital Photography, debuting at the #1 and #2 slots were Busch's Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. During the past year, he's had as many as five of his books listed in the Top 20 of Amazon.com's Digital Photography Bestseller list--simultaneously! Busch's 120-plus other books published since 1983 include bestsellers like David Busch's Quick Snap Guide to Digital SLR Lenses. Visit his website at http://www.dslrguides.com.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dennis Boyd on Jan. 22 2008
Format: Paperback
I've always used a point and shoot camera until recently. After purchasing a Digital Rebel XTi I quickly realized that I had a lot of learning to do, not only about the camera and all it's functions, but how to take pictures as well.

This book has become my "fall to" book. Where there is a question about "how do I" this book is the first one opened. It is full of not only information about how the XTi works and all it's settings, but also has an amazing amount of information on how to use all the different functions to capture the type of picture you are trying to (sports shots, night photos, portraits, etc...).

Great information in a well thought out package.

For more detailed information on how to better use exposure settings, to see creatively, etc... look elsewhere (i.e. Bryan Peterson's books). For a well rounded introduction... this is the book.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book, with plenty of clear information about Xti/400D.
It is written completely in a very personal style which I deem much better than other guides' ones.
What makes it a real 'hit' is the multitude of colored pictures accompanying almost every prime instructions.
It is a MUST have to go together with the Canon Xti/400D Manual.

Busch's Guide vs. Lowrie's guide for the XTi/400D Dec 8 2007
By Theodore Matthias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased both Busch's guide and Lowrie's guide to acquaint myself with the XTi.

I appreciated Lowrie's thorough explanations of the "bare facts" presented in the XTi's users manual. Unfortunately, I found Lowrie's guide to have a few errors (e.g.; the diagram of the "9-point AF" actually showed only 7-points). Obviously this was missed when Lowe's material was updated for the XTi.

Busch's information I found to be very accurate. Moreover, Busch goes into a fair amount of photography theory and shows how the XTi can be used to address some of the basic issues of technique. Describing the XTi's use in this context I found to be very engaging and informative.

If you want very good explanations of all the information in Canon's XTi user manual, the Lowrie book may be for you. But if you want to know all the Lowrie information AND and how it relates to the greater context of photographic theory, go for Busch's book.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi/400D Guide to Digital SLR Photography review Jan. 14 2008
By W. A. Kobling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book by BUSCH is better than the one by LOWRIE because it contains pictures of the actual camera and controls, which serve to make it easier to use. It is logical and almost step by step in it's instruction. It covers much of what the camera can do, even the custom functions in detail.

It is very straightforward and extremely helpful for anyone who has this complex camera, which can do a lot.

I recommend it to the novice or amateur photographer.

Great book Jan. 17 2008
By Geekette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am enjoying this book and glad I purchased it. One it's much easier on the old tired eyes to read than the small little thing that came with the camera, and colored pictures and all. Glad I made the purchase and this one seems to be the best one for the money from my checking out the others.

A must have! April 8 2008
By Phillip W. Whisnant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Unless one has tons of experience in photography, this book is a MUST HAVE. We converted from a point-and-shoot to the Rebel XTi just over 4 months ago and have been crippled by not having a source of reference. In my opinion, Canon should consider having this book as their user manual instead of the pocket-sized next to nothing that comes with the camera upon purchase.

Great book for beginner photographers Aug. 3 2008
By R. Hanania - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are a newcomer to the (digital) photography world and want to have some useful advice on how to master light, shade with your EOS-400 this is the book for you. Even though it doesn't replace the reading of the users' manual, this book explains thoroughly how to use this great camera to make great pictures. The book is fully illustrated, has "screen shots" of the actual menus and is a joy to read. Highly recommended material.
