Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots is a new book from photographer Nicole Young.
“This book has one goal: to teach Canon EOS 70D owners how to make great shots using their camera. Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the 70D–charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more–professional photographer and author Nicole S. Young then carefully guides you through the modes of the camera, offering practical advice on choosing your settings, expert shooting tips, and end-of-chapter “challenges” to get you up and running with your 70D.”
Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots retails for $24.99; however, it is currently available for $17.08 on Amazon.com.
The Canon 70D follows a long line of mid-range prosumer DSLRs that has been a decade in the making. The Canon xxD started way back in February 2003 when the 10D was introduced as a replacement for the D60. Canon has gradually updated these cameras over the years – with some years seeing larger jumps than others.
In 2010, the Canon 60D introduced HD video capture into the line and the 70D certainly steps up that game even further. At the same time, the 70D takes the still image capacity of the line a serious step further as well. [Read more...]
