This book/eBook package is your guide to getting more interesting and creative photos with the 12 megapixel Canon PowerShot SX 40 HS. It discusses every camera setting on this high-quality camera in a clear, well-illustrated style, with many integrated tips and easy-to-follow QuickSteps, but it also does much more. You'll also learn the concepts of photography as you learn why and when you use specific settings, not just how to set them. You'll find that this guide helps you quickly master your camera so you'll be able to get the kinds of photos you had hoped for.

The printed edition of the book is black & white and has a well-liked spiral binding that lets the book lie flat or be folded back on itself.

The eBook edition of the book, available as an instant download or on a CD disc, is a printable and searchable full-color version of the same book in Adobe's popular PDF format. You can print it out in whole or part in high resolution, and read it on a PC or Mac using the free Acrobat Reader, on any tablet that supports PDF, or any up-to-date Web browser. This eBook also includes clickable links to 50 or so Flash animations, movies and other resources that illustrate the core concepts of digital photography such as exposure compensation, lens focal lengths, histograms, and much, much more. (To use these animations you do need an Internet connection and Flash compatibility.)

Just some of the things you'll learn in this book are how to take pictures in fully automatic point and shoot mode and how your camera captures digital images; how to play back and manage your images; how to use buttons, dials, and menus; control image size and quality; use all of the camera's exposure modes and exposure controls to get photos that show the scene exactly as it is, or as you want to interpret it; use histograms for the best possible exposures; see how to control sharpness in your photographs; and how to use focus, depth-of-field, sharpness, softness, and blur creatively. Learn all about light and color and how to take advantage of them. Understand how they change throughout the day and seasons, how they're affected by the weather, and how light's direction and quality affects highlights and shadows. See how to set white balance to capture colors the way you see them. Learn how to use your zoom lens creatively when photographing scenery, interiors, people, and very small subjects. See how to creatively use the built in, and optional external flash, indoors and out and in good light and bad, and how to use studio lighting for product shots and portraits. Explore little known but essential flash techniques such as fill and slow sync flash. Finally, see how to capture panoramas, use continuous photography and capture Full HD movies with stereo sound; control the tonal range, capture movies; customize the camera to better suit your shooting style; and much, much more.

There is an excellent book with CD, that I bought even though I have the SX50, which was written specifically for the SX40. It's very informative and is 161 pages long. And of course you'll get great information here too. Me too. Report Inappropriate Content.

Talk about A Short Course in Canon PowerShot SX40 HS Photography book/ebook

This book contains much of the same information as the owners manual but is presented in a much more confusing manor. As you read a section references are made to what is being described as discused on page 92 or what ever it may be( you may be on page 12). The book seems to be a rehash of the owners manual along with a course in photography.
If you were hoping to get a manual on just how to take beter pictures in simple terms rather than a education in photography this may not be the book you were looking for. I have found at least one possible error in setting that the camera has. In most Canon cameras you have the choice of superfine, fine or normal and file size of large and so on. My sx40hs just has file size choices as all the files are only fine.
I have no intrest to go to the books web site which is not completely free after paying so much for the book and being disapointed
Beware of this disc! The 1 & only time that I used it, the disc jammed on my tray. I had to take my laptop to a computer repair shop to remove the disc.
It's so easy
This camera only comes with a digital version of the owner's manual. The short course not only has provided me with valuable education with regard to my camera but it also serves as my "hands on" owners manual.
However, the book should be in color like the PDF file on the disk. Recommended for any photographer that wants to get to know his camera better.
Since the official manual for the SX40 is only available on-line which I find inconvenient, it was helpful to have this spiral bound booklet with everything about the camera plus helpful general information on photography. The CD provides video clips to enhance to written information, but the booklet can stand on its own, too.
i bought this item shortly after i bought the camera. not thru it all yet, but this is a great learning product so far. i highly recommend it.
I've been waiting for this...I absolutly love the camera, now I can figure out how to use it. Now write one for the SX50
The book is OK, a bit confusing but you need to read it a couple of times to understand it. The low rating is because the CD that came with it it was empty, quite a disappointment.
