Photographer’s Guide to the Canon PowerShot S100: Getting the Most from Canon’s Pocketable Digital Camera was published by White Knight Press on December 17, 2011. This book, by Alexander S. White, is the eighth book in the author’s series of “Photographer’s Guides.” This new book provides clearly written guidance to beginning and intermediate photographers who want to learn how to use to best advantage the controls, menus, and other features of the PowerShot S100, one of the more advanced “point-and-shoot” digital camera models currently on the market.
The guide to the S100, like the earlier books in the series, does not assume any detailed knowledge of digital photography by the reader. In 283 pages, it covers all aspects of the camera in clear but detailed language, explaining technical concepts in plain English and taking the time to clarify complex topics such as white balance, ISO, aperture priority, shutter priority autofocus, and high dynamic range (HDR) photography. Each of the book’s nine chapters contains numerous full-color illustrations, consisting of photographs of the camera, screen shots showing the menu system and other information that appears on the camera’s LCD display, and numerous photographs taken by the author with a PowerShot S100.
In addition to providing guidance about all features and options of the camera, including a full discussion of the camera’s video capabilities, the book goes beyond the basics and presents introductions to several more advanced topics, including infrared photography, 3D photography, street photography, and macro photography, each topic accompanied by sample photographs taken with the S100. In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories for the camera, gives a set of “quick tips” with insights into getting the best results with the S100, and includes resources for further information.
The book contains a full table of contents and index, both of which are interactive in the PDF version, so the reader can click on a page number and navigate directly to the page with the desired topic.
