This book is for those who wish to get more out of their camera and to go beyond Full Auto and Program modes and shoot in Av mode and Tv mode. It includes explanations and recommended settings for all Menu settings, Movie Mode Menu settings, and Custom Function settings of the T3i. The guide covers basic dSLR camera functions and exposure concepts for those new to digital SLR photography, and explains more advanced camera controls and operation, such as using the various metering modes and exposure compensation for correct exposure of every image, controlling autofocus modes and focus points for sharp focus of still or moving subjects, and utilizing dramatic depth of field for professional looking photographs.

Canon T3i Experience also explains when and why to use the various settings, controls and features of the T3i for your photography, and describes every T3i Menu setting and Custom Function setting, with recommended settings to get you started quickly. It focuses on still-photography and not video but includes a brief introduction to video menus and settings to get you up and running. Sections include:

-Setting Up Your Camera - All of the Menu settings and Custom Function settings including movie mode menus, with brief descriptions and recommended settings for practical, everyday use. Set up and customize the advanced features of this dSLR to work best for the way you photograph.

-Aperture Priority Mode (Av) and Shutter Priority Mode (Tv) - How and when to use them to create dramatic depth of field or to freeze or express motion.

-Auto Focusing Modes and Drive Modes - How they differ, how and when to use them to capture sharp images of both still and moving subjects. Also how and when to use focus lock and back-button focusing.

-Exposure Metering Modes of the Canon T3i - How they differ, how and when to use them for correct exposures in every situation. Also how to make use of exposure lock.

-Histograms, Exposure Compensation, Bracketing, and White Balance - Understanding and using these features for adjusting to the proper exposure in challenging lighting situations.

-Composition - Brief tips, techniques, and explanations, including the creative use of depth of field.

-The Image Taking Process - A descriptive tutorial for using the settings and controls you just learned to take photos.

-Lenses – Explanation of Canon Lenses and choosing your next lens.

-Photography Accessories - The most useful accessories, plus recommended photography books.

-Introduction to Video Settings - Basic settings to get you started.

This digital field guide to the Canon Rebel T3i / EOS 600D is an 85 page (in its original PDF format) illustrated document that builds upon the information found in the Canon Rebel T3i manual, and will help one begin to master their dSLR and learn to use it to its full capabilities.

What Readers are Saying about Doug’s Previous Guide, T2i Experience:

"Best Guide to using a T2i – I don’t know how I could fully take advantage of all the features the T2i has to offer without this publication! It’s well-organized, easy to understand, and succinct enough to keep your attention while still containing a wealth of tips and tricks to get the most out of your camera." -Nathan K.

"A comprehensive and concise guide for hobbyists who desire to enhance their photography. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to ease out of auto mode and learn how to take high-quality photos. It explains how to apply advanced techniques and tips, walks you through the daunting task of menu settings, and smoothly guides you through the image-taking process. The instructions and brief explanations are easy to follow and well organized. The guide is a portable class on digital photography! A must-have if you want to learn how to use your camera to its fullest advantage. -Elizabeth J.

    I recommend this photographer's ebook!

    Here's a great reference for those photographers wanting to get more out of their digital SLR. Although written specifically for the T3i, many of the concepts apply across the board to other Digital SLR's.

    Mr. Klostermann explains sometimes intimidating concepts such as aperature, f-stops, & depth-of-field in layman's terms. This is particularly helpful when you don't have time to look through a manual with 100's of pages. Putting these tips to use will ultimately enhance your photographs taken by this sophistated camera. Why not use it to its highest potential?

    For the price & being instantly available, I think this is an excellent reference material. I am looking forward to additional publications by this author.
