    Good first book for the Canon 7d

    I have two books for the Canon 7d. I refer to this book the most. As a first time buyer of a digital SLR i needed a quick reference book yet detailed enough to get me familar with all of this camera's functions and abilities. I think this book does a good job for the money. When I need to look something up this book again is organized nicely and I can get what i need quickly. This camera has alot of abilities. I'm not sure if this book can cover 100% but it got me taking great photos quickly using all the camera modes.
