The Canon EOS 6D is the latest in Canon’s line up of full-frame DSLR cameras. This complex camera’s impressive array of advanced capabilities allows the photographer more influence over the final image.

This book’s exploration of the 6D goes beyond that of the user’s manual. The reader will find helpful suggestions for initial setup, step-by-step setting adjustments, and detailed explanations for each of the camera’s many features and menu configurations.

Readers will be introduced to the 6D’s built-in GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities. Also covered is the effective use of the camera’s hardware (and some software) as well as certain related accessories—with little emphasis on general photography.

In this richly illustrated book—with easy-to-follow screenshots and example images throughout—author James Johnson covers everything from basic camera features to advanced photographic options. Using this book as a guide, photographers will learn to get the most out of this powerful new camera. 

About the author:

When James (Jim) Johnson retired from a 25-year career as a software developer for IBM, he had already been working as a contract technical editor for Microsoft. After his retirement, technical editing and writing became his primary source of income to cover the cost of his “toys”—most of which were computer and photographic equipment.

Jim’s involvement with cameras began in the mid ‘50s when he needed to record the interior of caves in Kentucky. At the time, the greatest challenge was to provide adequate illumination, so he purchased a Leica 3F camera (which was the norm at that time) and experimented with numerous lighting sources. He was later able to add a nice piece of brass-and-glass that had been manufactured by Canon during the post-war occupation. That 100mm telephoto was every bit as sharp and capable as the Leica lenses. Such began Jim’s appreciation for Japanese camera equipment.

Jim and his wife Heather live on the California coast in a home that overlooks the Morro Bay estuary. The coast, the bays, and the mountains combine to host a vast array of botanical subjects, which are the focus of Jim’s current photographic interest.
