    Field Guide a great companion

    The Canon EOS 7D field guide is a godsend. Keep it in your bag and refer to it again and again as new situations present themselves. It's great to read for general knowledge of the camera but also a wonderful "on the spot" handbook which allows you to use the best settings for specific purposes. Most of the book is easy to read and understand and its a reference manual anytime you need it. This is a fantastic camera and this guide allows us to learn everything about it and use functions we never knew existed. I won't leave home without it!
