The successor to Canon's popular EOS 50D DSLR, the Canon 60D is
a powerful camera intended for advanced amateurs to
semi-professionals who want to jump into photography with the
control and capabilities of a DSLR--but without the high price.
There's the manual, of course, as well as competing books, and
while they all explain, often in 400+ pages, what the camera can
do, none of them shows exactly how to use the camera to create
This book has one goal: to teach Canon 60D owners how to make great shots using your camera. Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the 60D--charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more--professional photographer Nicole S. Young then carefully guides you through the modes of the camera, offering practical advice on choosing your settings, expert shooting tips, and end-of-chapter "challenges" to get you up and running with your 60D.
