(Coming soon - View inside this book.)
This book gives you the benefit of my (and many other photographers') experiences in using the E-3 in the field, at the sharp end of earning a living with it on a daily basis.
It has a thorough explanation of the layout of the camera and purpose of each control. All the menus are explained in detail and there are many power user tips throughout the book where I and others offer ideas for best practice or shortcuts that make using the camera easier or which release the best performance of the machine.
Some of the more advanced concepts of flash photography and control use are also explained. It is assumed, however, that you know your F-Stops from your Shutter speeds and other basics of photography. The book is not an introduction to photographic concepts. It is, however, a tool to release the hidden potential of your E-3 (and even the newer E-5 has a lot in common with it as well.)
GET THE BOOK FREE! I am making this book available for free to anyone who wants a copy (i.e. It is hereby placed in the public domain).
I do, however, have a small problem in that if I make it available as a download, and 200 people make use of this facility to get the book, I will hit the monthly traffic limit on my site and my ISP will cap the site traffic and then we will all have an issue.
South Africa still lives in the internet backwaters where we pay exorbitant prices for access and data per month as the state telecoms provider has a virtual monopoly on international bandwidth into and out of the country. This means a captive market and high prices for international traffic onto one's site..
So, if you want the book, send a mail to the address on the contacts page and I will mail it to you on a CD ROM. It would be nice if you covered the cost of the media and postage as my piggy bank does not magically produce an endless supply of coins to pay for the sending of CDs all around the planet. The postage cost will be calculated for your delivery address and you can then settle the cost via PayPal. If you are resident in South Africa, you can send the money via EFT.
If you like the book and you would like to help me get the others in the pipeline (Currently the Olympus E-5, Nikon D7000 and PEN EP2 and 3) out the door and into the public domain, a discretionary donation will never be turned-down and you are free (but not obliged) to send any such donation to the same PayPal account.
