Top Customer Reviews
In no way did I find that this was a book written by removing one camera model name and inserting Canon 5D. On the contrary it is written by someone who has intimate knowledge of this camera. I found the use of a mannequin face unhelpful in discussing the 4 exposure metering modes, since the results were almost identical and resulted in either speed A or speed B. A more complex situation might have been more revealing. I found comments on using the 5D and organizing the camera settings in fields such as portrait and landscape were useful.
I would buy this book again.

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.Published on Aug. 19 2011 by regjac
