Nicole Young‘s new book just launched –  Canon 7D: From Snapshots to Great Shots.

This book has one goal: to teach Canon 7D owners how to make great shots using your camera. Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the 7D — charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more — professional photographer 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 7D. This book is for anyone who has upgraded from a point-and-shoot, or who wants to jump right into photography with the control and capabilities of a powerful DSLR. - Peachpit

Canon 7D: From Snapshots to Great Shots is available for $24.99 retail; however, you can find it at Amazon for $16.49 at the time of this post.
