David Busch Camera Guide

Amazon UK are now listing David Busch's new guide to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 at around 20. No details of its contents yet, but they are saying it will be published on the 29th December 2012.

Lets hope it goes some way to sorting out menu options and settings, and is not too basic!

Re: David Busch Camera Guide

Good to see that there is a guide to the OM-D E-M5. what is needed is a simple introductory chapter on getting started and then plenty of detail on setting up the camera for its multiplicity of choices.

Longstanding Olympus users apparently find the menu system easy but those of us new to Olympus find it takes a while to get out heads around the menu system. I certainly found that I had to make a lot of use of online resources such as this forum in getting to grips with the camera. The printed leaflet that comes with the camera is too brief to be of much use and the manual on disk contains a lot in information but is not exactly user friendly. It is more use as a resource for reference once you are using the camera.

At 20 the new guide should be fairly comprehensive but I suppose part of the relatively high cost is due to a small print run compared with guides for the big boys like Canon and Nikon.

Re: David Busch Camera Guide

Well I have had a quick look on Amazon UK and all I can find is the same author's book on the Oly E-5 or digital photography books generally.

Do you have a link where I can pre-order?

It took a bit of finding - David Busch seems to be a most prolific author.

It seems to have gone up to 15.99 - slow down, guys, or Sainsbury's are going to put it up further

Ah just looked at the sub folder... it's not for the E5 then.
How are his guides? Will his guide for the E5 be any good?

Re: David Busch Camera Guide

His E-5 guide is better than most of that sort of book. Granted there are a few mentions that reveal the core of it was probably written for a different camera, but overall, not bad at all. It's the only such book I have ever bought, which tells you how unhelpful I found others.

Re: David Busch Camera Guide

Slightly disconcerting that the blurb (on the Sainsbury link) starts off by describing it as 12Mp not 16.

Hope that isn't typical of the book - a quick edit of an existing work perhaps?
