    This is a great guide for the Canon G11 camera. I found the owner’s manual to be difficult to see and also boring to read. Not true with this book. The pages are in full color and easy to see and understand. In an effort to learn all I could about my new camera, I had gone though the owner’s manual that came with the camera several times prior to buying this book. After reading only part of this book so far, I’ve found out all kinds of things that I never saw in the owner’s manual! I find it to be MUCH more helpful than the Magic Lantern Guide too, which just seems to have rehashed passages from the G11 manual that you get with the camera. Not only that but many of the illustrations in the Magic Lantern book are in black and white which makes it harder to see. If you’re only going to buy one G11 book, make it this one, you wont be disappointed.

    This book costs about 3% the price of the camera it describes. That could make it a good option if you’re in the market for a Canon G11 and want to see what it can do. But not once you own the camera.

    Mr. McLernon’s book seems written for barely experienced photographers, the kind of folks not likely to choose the Canon PowerShot G11 over simpler models. This is an excellent camera that can intimidate beginners and many with intermediate skills. If that describes you somewhat, then this book will be an excellent choice for you.

    Photographers who already are comfortable with managing exposure settings in their entirety will not get value from this field guide. The reason I wanted a book was that the Canon User Guide that comes with the camera has tiny type, flimsy pages, and illustrations that can be hard to interpret. McClernon’s guide is the opposite, but is not quite a substitute for the full coverage of the Canon product.

    I wanted revelations, some explanations that would help me identify and remember patterns in the menus and feature sets of the G11. Those weren’t in this book. I get more by using the Canon guide’s TOC and index than from the Field Guide. His writing is fine, and the photos McLernon chose to heavily illustrate this bulky book also approach excellent.

    But it looks like it’s part of a production line of how-to books whose instruction values are targeted towards the casual shooter who wants her sports and portrait snapshots to look better. The G11 can do that for her, and that’s why it’s so popular with professionals and serious amateurs alike. Not with this book, though. It does not condescend, but neither does it will enlighten a reader who don’t already know why she’d want exposure compensation or a fill flash or even a viewfinder.

    I think the only reason this is called the “…Field Guide” is because that’s the name of the series. I won’t take this book into the field because it’s too big and heavy, and there’s nothing of the “quick, how do I…” quality of a real field guide. In fact, I may not even want to keep it in my bookcase.

    Not to be condescending, but to describe where you stand in the universe of beginner to studio- or news-photographer skill level: A two-star photographer could buy this two-star book and gain some interesting and valuable skills. It’s a good read, but not for advanced amateurs. If you don’t get excited at receiving a free neutral gray card with the book, this it isn’t the book for you.

    Just getting back into photography after several years. Lots of new digital cameras to choose from. I did careful research and found the right camera for me, the Canon G11. However, when I received I pleasantly found out that this camera to have lots of extras. I decided that I needed a good guide to this camera. Brian McLernon’s book fit the bill perfectly. He covers everything that I wanted to learn about this multi-facited camera. Easy to read. Good illustrations, excellent directions. The perfect guide to this great camera.
