3.0 out of 5 stars Too generic, get this info free instead Nov. 28 2013
By DS - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not great, but a good book. Too many pictures, not enough 'meat'. Some basic photography principles are covered along with settings typical to this unusual camera. All the basics are covered, advanced stuff somewhat covered, and in the end this is more general photography than EOS-M material.

If you want general photography there are extensive FREE resources on the internet, and even free class notes and materials.

For a camera-specific book, there could be more details on advanced settings, practical advice on how to manually focus with different lenses and how to overcome some of the camera's limitations -- minus three stars.

There's a website for the book purchasers to share photos and ideas, and that is a plus, because you'll all be talking about the same camera -- plus one star.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome tips and tricks and general advice, with pictures not just paragraphs! May 15 2014

I've been using the same system in a DSLR, but the EOS M is just different enough that I wanted/needed some quicker reference materials. This book is a great solution.

I did the Kindle version and it's wonderful since it travels with me on any of my iOS devices for quick referencing.
4.0 out of 5 stars A good intro April 9 2014
By James T - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm an experienced photog, but new to this camera. The author has other books for other cameras that cover the same ground, but I noticed only one or two places where the cutting and pasting slipped up. Since the book is about 60% basic photography, and 40% device-specific it totally makes sense to build different flavors. It never hurts to be reminded of basic concepts, but he beats the depth-of-field drum a little repetitively. I liked having the example pictures: on the Kindle edition I can zoom in and look around and really appreciate the picture.

This is the manual that should have come with the camera! You would think by now that the Japanese camera companies would have smartened up. The manual that Canon provides is a joke: one that has gone on for years- they've rewritten the same incomprehensible manual again and again. Please, Canon, hire Jeff Carlson or at least buy a boatload of his books and throw one in every box.
After reading this, I feel competent with this camera, like a good photographer took the time to walk me through it. I was a little doubtful about the EOS M, but am now looking at adding a T4i to my collection- since the skills learned here will carry over.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good EOS M intro plus informative in general March 26 2014
By David Poteet - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This intro to the EOS M by Jeff Carlson covers the basics of photography and shooting in many scenarios with the wonderful, little, powerful M. The absence of a 5th star is due to: the handbook needs some absolutely lovely photos included in order to inspire, a table of the features and software settings, a section on how to use old glass with info on adapters and flange distance, an update in view of the latest firmware upgrade, and a brief factoid or more on how to set up the manual settings and what to include. But it is really very useful handbook overall.
4.0 out of 5 stars VERY HELPFUL Feb. 25 2014

This book is very helpful in getting used to my new EOS M. While it does have a lot in common with my EOS Rebel T4i, there are lots of differences. Maybe I could have worked them out without any help, but this book made it easier.
