5.0 out of 5 stars Canon 5D mkII guide Aug. 21 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book that goes beyond the Canon manual unlike other books I have bought in the past. Waiting for the same author to write the book on the Canon 580 EXII flash and will buy that as well. Recommended...

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not waste money on this book Jan. 11 2010
By J. Li
This is just another version of the manual with other very basic topics about digital photography added to the book. These topics are available in a lot of places over the internet for free. There is nothing new and insightful which I was hoping to get. Go onto the internet to check out the topic if you want to go further into it. Unless you are a beginner and have very limited knowledge digital photography, do not bother to waste money on this book. However the Canon 5D MK II is not meant for a beginner.

It is a good book full of picture examples. I found some of the information a bit far advanced and not in the order that is easily found.

1.0 out of 5 stars A dated book March 18 2010
By AAA - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has not been updated to reflect all changes in the new Canon EOS 5D Mark II. It looks like they only changed the cover. New shooting modes are not acknowledged. I returned the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfactory Plus Dec 11 2009
By Stewart - Published on
I rate this book between the Magic Lantern series and the David Busch authored books. While I don't have the 5D2 Busch version yet [not yet out] the 50D set of both allows me to state this. All three are worth while. This one is a little more suited to sitting by the fire on a cold night than the Magic Lantern version. The Magic Lantern version is very good for carrying with you as a quick refresher though. This one is especially better than the Canon Manual. Easier to find things and more detail. Larger print too.

5.0 out of 5 stars very easy to understand... Dec 24 2009
By Emily Smith - Published on
Most of the time I don't read books on how to use the camera because they are complicated and make things more confusing than they need to be. This book was full of photographs, had easy to use intructions and actually made it fun to learn more about my camera. I would highly recommmend this book to anyone with this camera from beginner to advanced.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as helpful as I hoped July 20 2010
By Sushi Chef - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The step-by-step instructions in the book are often incomplete or inaccurate. The small booklet that comes with the camera gives complete and accurate information on all features. There are too many obvious errors, also. I found only a few useful insights (though most 5D owners already know) in the book. If you are looking to find accurate and useful information beyond the owner's manual, you may be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top of the line literature Sept. 24 2009
By Cyrus - Published on
If you got the top dog of digital cameras then get this guide. It will help you bring your skills to the top with easy to read text and simple to read instructions. Not written like a manual with visuals and, illustrations and pictures. Great examples and even learn how to use video with help on selecting additional gear. A must have for any owner of Canon EOS 5D Mark II.
