The purchase of this guide was important to me. The manual that comes with the camera is useful, but not very readable. I wanted to understand my new purchase better (R6) At the moment there are not many alternatives in English – this is the best available book. But I think it is not easy to write a better one. Text is readable and clear. I’m not sure how it should me written, but I think there could be clear case studies – like how to set the camera if you want to do xxxxx and you are a xxxx type shooter . There are so many types of us amateur photographers – perhaps that could be something to meditate . Some of us are artists and some of us are space age computer engineers. Anyway , I would say that this book is “highly recommended” – after buying an expensive camera a small investment in a well written guide is essential.

This is another excellent book by David Busch. This is the 4th book of his I’ve purchased. As mentioned, David’s material is much more detailed and easy to understand than the Canon Manual, I highly recommend the book.

I have read other manuals by David Busch and have found them especially helpful and well done, so I look forward to reading this manual on Canon’s mirrorless models R5 and R6. The author begins by explaining the initial set-up, which although it may appear simple, I was happy to have an assist through the process. Those initial steps are critical.
I appreciate that Busch uses actual photographs of the back and front of the camera to explain the functions of the various buttons and wheels. There can be no mistake when you see it as it really is. I also appreciate the depth and clarity of his explanation on how to master the touch screen, often a tricky task for me. He points out that the touchscreen is invaluable and can be used to control almost everything. He suggests that, when we are comfortable with it, we rely on it rather than the various manual controls.
One of the many perks of Busch’s manual is that he goes into some detail on choice of lenses for these cameras. He includes tips on how to avoid potential problems with certain of the lenses. Since I am new to mirrorless cameras, I appreciate that he covers the territory for what we need to know when we use this new kind of camera.
Busch truly goes the extra mile; he not only explains how to use the speed light to provide flash for your images, he explains how to use it as a radio sender to control other off-camera flashes, how to control precisely the amount of light, and how to use the lights in group configurations. And that’s just a little of what he has in his section on flash. We are not constrained to use just one flash, we can have multiple flashes for a given shot and tell them remotely and wirelessly what to do and when, and all from our camera
One of my favorite sections is toward the end of the manual, when the author discusses customizing the autofocus menu. As someone who shoots animals in motion, autofocus is critical for me and Busch does a great job of telling us how to set things up, depending on your goal. The author does not neglect to give us useful and complete detail on how to customize the other functions of our camera such as bracketing our shots, setting ranges for shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, and customizing our dials and buttons for the functions we use most often.
Busch concludes the book by talking about shooting video which is something I can always use instruction on. He walks through the video menu in detail, covers how to set autofocus for movies, something I have never done but will now know how to do, and even how to take HDR movies.
Well, my expectations were met and exceeded, as usual when Bush writes a manual for cameras. He is quite good and I will refer to this book countless times as I learn how to use mirrorless cameras. Can’t wait for the manual on the R3!

My first DAVID BUSCH guide was for my Canon EOS 80D and it was the perfect addition to my camera bag, but a bit heavy. When I upgraded to the EOS R, I immediately ordered DAVID BUSCH’S guide to the Canon EOS R, but this time I ordered the E-BOOK along with the softcover and that was the best decision I made. Now, I’ve added the Canon EOS R5 and I just received my softback and digital copies of his latest guide. Why spend the little bit extra for the digital version? Because now I can open a copy on my cell phone when in the field when/if needed and it’s perfect. I can also open the pdf version and print out specific pages and build my own easy to reference guides to throw in my bags.
Ordering from Rocky Nook and the digital versions of their books has saved me so much time and has really been my first choice in books. I could buy the hard/softback versions of these books from another online seller, but I don’t really think they need any of my money to send more rich people into space. 😁
And yes, when I sell my older camera bodies, I add the associated guide book with it. Physical copy only though.
