This book/eBook package and the interactive animations you play by clicking links in the eBook guide you to full mastery of the feature-rich Canon EOS 30D digital SLR camera. The package is really an introductory photography course based on your own camera that teaches you everything you need to know to capture more interesting and exciting photographs.
In this clear and easy-to-understand book you’ll see how every control on your camera affects your images, especially their exposure, color, and sharpness. You'll see why and when you use specific settings, not just how to set them. You’ll find yourself quickly mastering your camera and capturing the kinds of photos you hope for.
The book is printed in black & white and has a popular spiral binding that lets the book lie flat or be folded back. The accompanying eBook on a CD disc is a printable and searchable full-color version of the same book in Adobe's popular PDF format. The eBook can be read on a PC or Mac using the free Acrobat Reader or any current Web browser. Throughout the eBook are buttons you click to run more than 50 interactive animations that bring to life the core concepts of digital photography such as exposure compensation, lens focal lengths, histograms, and much, much more. (To use these multimedia features you do need an Internet connection.)
The author has edited, published, or written many of the best selling textbooks in digital photography so he knows how photographers learn. If you want to take an introductory photography course based on your own camera, you won’t find a better way to do it.

I lost my 30d camera manual and have purchased several different publications that I could use for references on how to use my 30d better. When I saw this pub and looked at the review it was just what I needed for reference. After receiving it I realized it was just like a manual but in a bigger format. Product was just as described. The book takes you through the proper use and gives hints to take better pictures. It also gives reference to the CD that was enclosed and that fine tunes the information in the book. The book can go to the field but I'd leave the CD home unless you have a lite-weight player. All in all very good product very helpful in learning how to use you EOS 30d. I currently have my 14yo son reading it so he can use the camera. I recommend this to anyone who needs a good book on how to use their 30d. Bob, Fort Myers, FL.
Overall this book is good for people who want to familiarize themselves with the camera (EOS 30D). But the book is not a smooth and easy reading text. In some instances examples are misleading when especially regarding distinction between sizes of F stops and aperture which are used interchangeably. Certain areas are discussed in too much details while other features are not discussed enough.
Handy and informative for learning about that camera.
