    Excellent book, plenty of detail about the various camera functions. I’ve bought other books by the same author, and find that he explains the technical stuff well. A great addition to the camera manual.

    This book is extremely helpful in working through the gazillion menu settings of the OMDEM1II. In addition to descriptions, the author presents recommendations for the settings he chooses and also the why. In addition to the print book, I also use the ebook which is both more portable on handheld and more searchable. Saved me lots of time in becoming familiar with the camera and am still often referring to it for refreshers as well as learning new material. Great book

  • I picked up this book with the intention to do a cover-to-cover reading, but I read it very differently. Young’s Mastering the Olympus OMD E-M1 Mark II is an amazingly comprehensive text that covers virtually everything you could want to know about this amazing flagship camera from Olympus. From setting the camera up for maximum efficiency to delving into rarely-used but nice-to-have features, this text is the essential guide for the photographer looking to fully use the powers built into this camera body.

    What makes this book most valuable are the step-by-step directions- and illustrations- of navigating menus to find the hidden gems of this body. Young has personal preferences that he shares as well, challenging the reader to discover new ways of maximizing your shoot effectiveness. His experience with the camera also allows him to critique how well the camera manages different challenges, like focusing and establishing an auto white balance, and he provides advice on best practices.

    With such in-depth exploration comes a challenge of how to approach the book- it’s not merely a reference guide, but the depth makes it hard to simply read novel-style. I found myself paging through the entire text, delving deep into explanations that I was seeking and then skimming other areas with brevity. Interestingly, it was the skimming that paid off the most, as I happened upon features that I had no idea existed and problem solving methods that I had never considered.

    Young has put together a superb text in Mastering the Olympus OMD E-M1 Mark II- it’s the best book I have found to empower my use of this amazing camera body.

  • Really impressed with the way this book is written, it is a must have if you want to truly master your Olympus OM-D E-M1Mark ll. However I do get a little frustrated with moving to different pages for info on the same function?
    Author needs to check for contradictions! For example, recommended maximum ISO on page 23 camera does well up to 1600 and author would only exceed this in emergency. Then on page camera does well up to 3200? I realise that the level of noise generated by higher ISO is down to personal acceptance levels.
