I recognize that "best" is kind of open ended, but almost every review of the top 10 books on Amazon all have reviews which read "the little green manual is better.....this book just repeats that info on a full-sized page." or "the author spent 3 chapter talking about printing images."
I'm looking for a book that will discuss each feature - why to use it, when to tinker with default settings, how to get better at figuring out which modifications will impact your shots, what the custom functions do (in more than a single bullet point.) I don't need a photography book - I need a book that will break down my camera, functions by function.
I recognize that I may even require multiple books...not just for WHAT the functions do...but WHEN to best use them." But I'm slightly overwhelmed at present by this massive upgrade to my XTI
Can you recommend a book like this?
