Comments about oreilly Canon EOS 5D Mark III:

This book is a step-by-step explanations of the features and capabilities of the 5D Mark III, the most desired newest camera of Canon after the world famous mark ii. Is more than a guide because it explores step-by-step setting adjustments, color illustrations and details for each option.
Nevertheless, i would recommend the guide only if you have the camera unless you are already familiar to Canon 5D series.
This is not a book to decide whether or not you would buy it, it is a guide to use all of its great potentials!
I was expecting more details of photography tips and methodology but the book title is clear, is all about the device.
