    Highly Recommend - $'s Well Spent!

    I purchased this book and my only regret was not having purchased it sooner. It's well written in English and covers all the important aspects of the 50D in my humble opinion.

    you can pick and choose what key elements are important to you, but I found starting at the beginning gave me a more thorough understanding of the camera and it's capabilities.
