easy to read but comprehensive
This book could be the text for a weekend immersion course on the 5D iii. It's easy to read, so with camera in hand you can quickly grasp the many advanced features of this camera in a short time and have fun while learning. Written for those upgrading from earlier 5D's or the 7D, the author includes many useful suggestions for all levels. Its emphasis is on still-image photos, but there's enough info to get you started doing videos as well. All in all, this is an excellent ebook. My personal suggestion is to buy the pdf format from his website, because I can read the iBooks edition only on my iPad3, not my iPhone 4 (even with the iBooks app) or PC (Windows does not recognise the format.)
Excellent Guide to the 5D Mark III
While the Canon 5D Mark III Manual is certainly comprehensive, it is not exactly user-friendly. It tells you all you need to know about the camera, but not exactly how best to use all of its features and custom functions - particularly the 61 point autofocus system. That is where Doug Klostermann's Guide shines. It is perfectly organized, providing the information in the most logical sequence. I loaded this onto my ipad and with camera in hand went through all the chapters and sections applying Doug's recommendations and testing various settings and shooting scenarios. His chapter on autofocus is worth the price alone. Highest recommendation.
Canon 5D Mark III Experience
By On Thunder Road
I found this to be an excellent guide to the Canon 5D Mark III. Moving up from the 5D Mark II, I was not as proficient with the new menus and features. This book provided a very clean, concise explanation in a logical sequence.
I particularly liked that the author went through each setting step by step, with a picture of the specific menu item. As an example, I learned that I was using an enhanced auto focus feature incorrectly. I wouldn't have figured this out on my own, and the description of which setting to use for certain shots was also very helpful.
I read the e-book on my iPad, with camera in hand, and it saved me a great deal of time searching the web for answers to my questions. I'm now anxious to see the results of having a better understanding of how to use this great camera.
