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.

Like his previous Guidebook, this one has nine chapters that explain how to set up the camera, a listing of each of the buttons and controls, what they do, and how to use them, and an exhaustive chapter that explains all the menus settings, with both a listing of options available and, most important, which options are best for particular kinds of shooting. The manual offered by Canon confuses me on these points, but here I found all I wanted to know. I am now confident that I can set up my camera correctly in all situations.
Before reading this author's books, I had problems getting the correct exposure at all times and often had out of focus images even when using autofocus. Now I understand, especially when using the new Live View feature. The explanations are much more clear than in the small Guidebooks which are as the other reviewer says pocketsized. I would much rather have all the information I need than to have a smaller book. I recommend this book if you are new to the Rebel T1i or even if you are upgrading from a previous Canon EOS camera.
There are some great on-line digital photograhy classes by John Greengo (at [...]) for those of you who are truely starting out and need to understand photographic concepts. (I have no affiliation with this group and am not paid by them.) You may want to consider understanding those concepts before you dig into this book. If you are already past that point then the book is probably just fine.
