Your World 60D is for those who wish to get the most out of their camera and to go beyond Auto and Program modes and shoot in Av mode, Tv mode, and even Manual mode. While it explains basic dSLR camera functions and exposure concepts for those new to digital SLR photography, it concentrates on 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.

Your World 60D not only covers the various settings, functions and controls of the Canon 60D, but it also explains when and why to use them for your photography. It describes every Menu setting and Custom Function setting, with recommended settings to get you started quickly.
