David will be working with us to add even more comprehensive, must-have guides on Canon, Nikon, and Sony models to our robust list of camera manuals and guides!

David Busch is truly a jack of all trades. While he has over 200 books to his credit, he also boasts an impressive resume including newspaper reporting/photography, operating a commercial photo studio, and a 22-year run as a principal in CCS/PR, Inc., one of the largest public relations/marketing firms buschblog02based in San Diego.

As a second option for readers, he works to whittle down all that information into a separate, smaller compact Field Guide, which serves as the perfect addition to your camera bag, offering the essential information you need for your camera no matter where you are.

    It’s very disapointing not to see a book about the Canon 7d mark ii on that list. I’d preordered a copy on Amazon going on a year ago. I have the camera, now if I just had the guide.

      Hi Leesa, we can understand your disappointment. If we had become David’s publisher this time last year, you can rest assured we would have pursued a book on this camera with David! But unfortunately its not economically feasible to do a book on the Canon 7D Mark II at this time, as it’s been out for so long. I know David shares our disappointment but it was a decision made by his former publisher. That said, we are thrilled to be moving forward in partnership with David so that his many readers can enjoy books on cameras for years to come. Scott

    I have read two (2) books this author did on canon gear and would like to know did he write anything on the Canon 1D Mk 4?

      Hey Nick,

      Unfortunately David did not write books on the Canon 1D Mk 4 with Rocky Nook but if you search on sites like Amazon you should find David Busch’s Guide to the Canon 1D series.

    Will you be doing any books for the Olympus OMD E-M10 or E-M10 ii? I would really like some help with my E-M10.

      Hi Ellen,

      Thanks for the recommendation. We are always assessing new cameras and deciding whether or not to pursue a book on them. We do not yet have a book planned for the E-M10 Mark II, but it is still under discussion. Thanks again for the comment; it’s always good to hear what photographers like yourself are looking for.

    Any chance there is a Compact Field Guide for the Sony a6000 in the works. I have the full size version, but it’s a bit much to travel with.

    Re: the reply to Leesa from Scott Cowlin. The Canon 7D Mark II is hugely popular, and will likely remain so for years, just like the original 7D. I have David’s book on the original 7D, and it is superb. The absence of a book on the 7D Mark II that is the quality and scope of David’s original 7D book is a real disappointment to those of us who use this camera. Please reconsider your position on this.
