    A better guide book on using the Canon G10/G11 camera

    I had just purchased my Canon PowerShot G11 and read the User Guide that came with the camera. It was okay, but I wanted to learn more on how to use all the function that the camera has to offered. This book, "Canon PowerShot G10/G11- From Shapshots to Great Shots", not only show how all the main function works; but it also give good pointer on how to get those "great" pictures that I wanted. It's a great way to learn to use my camera. I give it a high mark on owning this book to my library.

    A G10 Shooter's Review

    Canon PowerShot G10/G11: From Snapshots to Great Shots
    Before I begin this review, I want to make clear this is not "the missing manual that should have come with your camera." Rather, this is a photography book that uses the Canon G10 and G11 as the vehicle to help any photographer-but particularly one using a high-end point-and-shoot-improve his or her image-making skills. And to make his point that anyone can make great images, the author-Jeff Carlson-illustrated much of From Snapshots to Great Shots with images submitted to his online Flickr group.
    Although the goal of this book is pretty much the same as any photo book-to make the reader a better photographer-Jeff Carlson does take a different tact from many other authors. First, although this book focuses on the Canon G10 and G11, he describes their features more in terms of when and why to use them, rather than how. The "how" he leaves to the respective camera manuals to which he directs the reader using page-referenced ""Manual Callouts."
    Next, each chapter begins with an image (complete with shot data) analyzed for the topics to be discussed in the following pages. Last, as I mentioned, the author doesn't rely only on his professional images to illustrate the techniques described in the book. He lets readers see that "real people" can make excellent photos with the methods he provides.
    And, of course, as any good instructor should, Jeff asks his readers to take a break after each chapter and put what they have learned to practical use: to shoot images and submit them to the book's Flickr group.
    As you'd expect, From Snapshots to Great Shots clearly covers all the necessary skills and techniques a good photo book should, with chapters on camera controls and modes, shooting techniques and image-making styles. I'd certainly recommend this book to G10 and G11 shooters; but, I also believe any high-end point-and-shooter can also benefit.
