Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots

( 5 )

Overview

The successor to Canon's popular, now-three-year-old EOS 60D "prosumer" DSLR, the Canon 70D is a powerful camera intended for advanced amateurs to professionals who want to jump into photography with the control and capabilities of a DSLR–but without the high price. There's the manual, of course, as well as competing books, and while they all explain, often in 400+ pages, what the camera can do, none of them shows exactly how to use the camera to create great images!

Overview

The successor to Canon's popular, now-three-year-old EOS 60D "prosumer" DSLR, the Canon 70D is a powerful camera intended for advanced amateurs to professionals who want to jump into photography with the control and capabilities of a DSLR–but without the high price. There's the manual, of course, as well as competing books, and while they all explain, often in 400+ pages, what the camera can do, none of them shows exactly how to use the camera to create great images!

This book has one goal: to teach Canon EOS 70D owners how to make great shots using their camera. Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the 70D–charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more–professional photographer and author Nicole S. Young then carefully guides you through the modes of the camera, offering practical advice on choosing your settings, expert shooting tips, and end-of-chapter "challenges" to get you up and running with your 70D.

The 70D is slated for availability in late September 2013. Features include:

- 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor
- ISO 100—12,800 (expandable to 25,600) for shooting from bright to dim light.
- A 19-point all cross-type autofocus system
- A 7 frames-per-second continuous shooting capability
- In-camera features like HDR, HDR Backlight Control, Multiple Exposure, Handheld Night Scene, and Creative Filters
- A 3-inch Clear View LCD monitor
- And much more!

    Pokemon Mystery Dungeon~Bringing the Fire: Chapter 1

    An un<_>conscious orange ch<_>ick-like creature was lying in the snow. She had a short beak, with yellow fluffly wings and a three-pointed crest on the top her of her head. She slowly opened her eyes and saw that she was lying on the blanket of white. The creature got up slowly, somewhat dizzy. She remembered nothing, not even her name. Except that the fact that she was human. A thought popped to her head. [I need to find civilization.] The creature began to trudge through the snow, steps clumsy and uneven. While she did so, she found out that she needed a name. The creature ran through many options, until one clicked.<p>[Scorch.]<p>Scorch continued to walk on, the cold stinging her face, until she came across what appeared to be many domes that seemed to hold the purpose as shelters. "Finally!" Scorch muttered. She found a few stands, such as one that had odd-looking berries, blue orbs, seeds, disks of different colors, rocks, spikes, and more, one that had shelves containing items, another that had piles of gold coins, and others, all of which are closed, likely due to the weather. As Scorch looked, she suddenly bumped into something. It was a small light blue crocodile, that had a pale yellow stomach, red spines, and brown eyes, the skin surrounding of which is black. "Excuse me," Scorch said. The crocodile looked at her, saying rather rudely "Get out of my way! I don't want to deal with a Torchic right now." "Pardon me?" Scorch said, taken aback. "Yeah. The other Pokemon loves to torture me with names and in<_>sults, and I don't hear another mean word. Are you here to make fun of me?" the crocodile asked. The voice was unmistakably feminine. "Um, no. Besides, I-" "TEAM DYSTO, ATTACK!" someone shouted, interrupting Scorch. Three Pokemon came out, one was a mostly dark gray (with some light gray) grey wolf-like Pokemon with, another a purple cat-like Pokemon, and still another a light lavender Pokemon which looked like a cross between bat and a dragon. The cat tackled the crocodile. In retailation, she shouted "You mess with a Totodile, you get the teeth! Take this, Purrloin!" The Totodile clamped her powerful jaws on the Purrloin, who took quite a bit of damage from the attack before escaping. The mini-wolf and dragon-bat attacked Scorch. Suddenly, she felt a hot feeling rise from her stomach. Hot flames came out her beak, burning them. "Poochyena! They're too strong!" the dragon-bat yelled. "Maybe so, Noibat, but I want whatever they have on them!" Poochyena replied. Soon, even the Poochyena realized that defeat was inevitable. "Team Dysto, retreat!" he howled before racing off. The Totodile turned to the Torchic. "Say, you're good fighter. What's your name?" "Scorch," she replied. "I'm Aqua!" the Totodile said. "I'm sorry that I was so mean to you. I had a bad day. I get picked on a lot. Were you going to tease me?" Scorch shook her head. "No. I never do that." For some reason, she was disgusted by the fact that someone would bully Aqua. "Yay! By the way, where did you come from? I never seen you before," Aqua asked. "To be honest, I don't know. I don't even know my real name. All I remember that I was a human," she answered. "You said you have amnesia? Hahahaha!...You're not kiddin', are ya?" Aqua inquired. "No." "Well, I can't understand the human part. They're suppose to be a myth. Hmmmmm...by the way, would you like to stay at my place? We can form a team tommorrow at the Rainbow Guild."
