    At least it's pocketable

    This guide follows the Magic Lantern formula, and as such it does expand somewhat on the manual supplied with the camera, and does explain more than that manual.
    However, I do not find it nearly as helpful as "David Busch's Pentax K200D Guide to Digital SLR Photography" by Busch and Bamberg, which is actually a comprehensive guide to the K200D, but also a general guide to DSLR photography.
    Still, the Magic Lantern guide is far smaller, reasonable to carry along when travelling, which the "K200D Guide to Digital SLR Photography" is certainly not.
    A nice little extra is the Magic Lantern's little shirt-pocket sized "Quick Reference Card", on weather-proof paper; it unfolds, so it actually has six credit card sized sides full of hints which can help when you haven't accessed a feature or adjustment for a while and can use help finding it.
    I would recommend the Magic Lantern Guide to anyone who finds the "owners manual" difficult to use; the Magic Lantern guide is a similar size and easier to use. On the other hand, if you can live with the original manual for in-the-field reference, the "Guide to Digital SLR Photograpy" is much more comprehensive and helpful as a reference book on the K200D.
