Canon EOS 40D--New from Rocky Nook: Learn to Master This Magnificent Camera the Photographer’s Way

Canon EOS 40D Santa Barbara, CA—Your new Canon EOS 40D arrives, gets unpacked, the batteries are fully loaded, and you are ready to go. For the next few weeks you will be in experimental mode, trying out your camera—and you often end up with a basic and limited set of functions and modes, which you will use for the rest of the camera’s life. Why? Because you, like most of us, are lazy, and because the manual that comes with the camera is too dense and confusing.

Get the full “40D-Experience” with Canon EOS 40D: The Rocky Nook Manual (Rocky Nook, $29.95). Learn to master this magnificent camera, and learn it the photographer’s way; from the basics of exposure and metering to focus modes, live view, bracketing, continuous shooting, and flash photography. Also learn how to set up your camera menus for different shooting situations, and see the outstanding images that can be achieved with these settings.

Dr. Artur Landt’s book is beautifully illustrated and is so much more than just a camera manual. It is a must for all serious amateur, semiprofessional, or professional photographers who want to get the most out of their Canon EOS 40D, and who strive to produce impressive, polished, digital images.
