Part I

Knowing Your Camera Inside and Out


Very simply, this part gets you up and running.

Chapter 1 explains all the buttons, bells, and whistles on your Canon EOS 5D Mark III. You learn how to get at and manage the information the camera throws at you; how to work with lenses, batteries, and memory cards; how to adjust the viewfinder so that you can see better through it; and how to clean the camera’s sensor.


Chapter 2 walks you through how to set up the camera, including how to set the date and time, choose a shooting mode and drive mode, and set up image size, quality, and type.


It’s an action-packed way to start the book, I tell ya!
