Canon 6D Experience is an e-book user's guide that goes beyond the manual to help you learn the features, settings, and controls of this versatile and customizable full-frame dSLR camera, plus most importantly how, when, and why to use them in your photography. Written in the clear, concise, and comprehensive style of all Full Stop guides, Canon 6D Experience will help you learn to use your EOS 6D quickly and competently, to consistently make the types of images you desire.

It's well-organized, easy to understand, and succinct enough to keep your attention while still containing a wealth of information to get the most out of your camera."
