  1. I have used “Canon 5D Mark III Experience” several times to navigate my way thru my new 5D Mk3. It has already payed for itself.

  2. Many thanks for your e-book, it has helped me organize my 5D Mark III.

    Like your guide, have read it several times, and highlighted it, and still am overwhelmed, BUT I love the camera!! Just need time and experience with it. Thanks for your effort in producing the Kindle Edition it has been a big help.

    However, as much as I like and enjoy the camera body, or should I say computer, it really is the glass that determines the quality of the image!
 Please keep me informed of any updates.

  3. Many thanks for your book. It really enabled me to make full sense of this incredible camera. I’ve now had the camera a few weeks (upgraded from a 600D) and am still discovering just what it is capable of. It just proves that quality is not just about the number of pixels (How many do you really NEED?). Its low-light capabilities are just awesome (especially if you shoot RAW and then process images in PS6. As with any sophisticated piece of equipment it really takes some time to get to know how to get the best out of it in different conditions. Your book really helped me to do this (Kindle version – so I needed to go to Flickr on my PC to appreciate the images properly). Thanks again.

    1. Wonderful! I’m glad that you found the guide to be helpful! Please consider sharing your review on Amazon :) (and let me know if you have any questions about the camera or guide.)

  4. Very well written book. I knew going from a 10D and jumping in with both feet into a 5D Mark III would be a steep learning curve, but this book simplified and gave practical application examples that greatly aided in my understanding of different functions. I wanted a camera that I would not outgrow and could perform to the maximum limits but was somewhat intimidated by this camera because of its complexities. I do believe this book has given me the basics to now begin using this camera with the capabilities to which it was designed.

    Thank you, Gary.
