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.

Somewhat between a 4 stars and a 5 stars was what I could give to this book. Owing to some errors and rooms for improvements existed in this book, I decided to give it a 4-star. A serious error was on p.20, quote "Full Auto. In this mode, the EOS 5D Mark II makes all the exposure decisions for you, and will pop up the flash if necessary under low-light conditions". Unfortunately, this model (Canon 5D Mark II) does not have a pop up flash. I hope the author/publisher can make corrections in the next revision. Since there are not many books on Canon 5D Mark II that were written for the general users of the camera, this book can still be considered as one of the best. It helps you to get out of your comfort zone of using "Auto" mode, and explore the usefulness of other modes such as the 'P', the 'Tv', the 'Av', and the 'M' modes.

Since I have read only one-quarter of the book (and am continuing reading it), my comments are limited. I may or may not contribute further comments, depending on requests from Amazon.

P.48 - quote "When the Shooting Functions screen is visible, you can adjust the values of the settings". Improvements can be made by telling the readers how to adjust those settings.

P.55 - Sensor focal plant. It would be better if the author could inform the readers to go to a certain chapter for more information, just like the way he did when describing the topics above and below the present topic.

P.59 - Infared adjustment indicator. An application example would be appreciated.

P.61 - Maximum burst available. A photograph would be appreciated to show the readers the location of this information.

P.77 - Figure 4.10. I believe there is an error in the title of the picture. It says '...that's only 3.8 percent of the image area.'.
