David Busch’s Sony Alpha A7III Guide to Digital Photography delivers a comprehensive guide to both the camera itself and the best ways to shoot with this body.
Busch’s series of camera guides are always well written and illustrated, and it’s no surprise that as camera versions are upgraded, so too are his books. And while his upgraded books are not written from scratch- much of the text comes from previous versions (as it should)- it’s clear that Busch approaches each camera body with a fresh look at implementing new technologies. The daunting task of explaining each and every setting option (there are 4 chapters solely dedicated to the menu system) goes well beyond simply defining what each option is- Busch has spent endless hours shooting and suggests, with obvious expertise, the most effective and efficient ways of approaching the A7III. He combines the dry technical specs with both an explanation of how and why each is relevant and then explores implementation of each. The text is beautifully illustrated and easy to follow along.
Busch covers both photography and videography in the book, his topics ranging from introductory concepts to advanced techniques in both. Practical topics including firmware updating, utilizing third-party lenses, and wireless lighting are also presented. Later chapters consider accessories including Sony flashes, lens choices, and various specialty items including remotes, grips and macro equipment.
David Busch’s Sony Alpha A7III Guide to Digital Photography is more of a photography course emanating from a camera manual than a simple how-to guide of the A7III. A dedicated instructor, Busch refers the reader to his web site in the Introduction chapter, offering a direct email link for feedback and recommendations as well as an Errata page that he will update. This is an essential feature to any contemporary camera manual since firmware updates will change not only a camera’s features but also menus and capabilities- Busch seems to have his readers covered in this area.
