Leica D-Lux 4 Book

Alexander White’s new book, Photographer’s Guide to the Leica D-Lux 4: Getting the Most from Leica’s Compact Digital Camera, is now available.  Apparently, it sold out rather quickly on Amazon; however, it has some early praise from reviewers.

Before digging in the book, my initial concern was that it would be one of these books that just paraphrase manuals, and don’t provide any added value apart their weight of paper. Starting from the first chapter and on, I quickly realized that this wasn’t the case with this book. You can sense that the author is communicating with you his experience and enthusiasm about that camera, and photography in general. The book goes to the essential of each feature, and the author doesn’t forget to share a few tips and insights. -via Amazon reviews

The book carries a retail price of $19.95, but it can currently be had on Amazon.com for $13.46.

Alexander tells me that a new batch is already on its way to Amazon, so you can get in line at Amazon for the next shipment.  If you just can’t wait, you can order the book directly from whiteknightpress.com for immmediate shipment.
