Yesterday I uploaded to Amazon.com the Kindle file for Photographer’s Guide to the Canon PowerShot S95. Today it showed up as available for sale on Amazon, so, for anyone who would like to have the Kindle version of the book, you can now find it at this location on Amazon.com. The Kindle book has all the same content as the printed book. Of course, the photos do not show up in color on a Kindle device, though they should be in color if you use one of the Kindle applications to view the book, such as Kindle for Mac, Kindle for iPad, etc. The Kindle version sells for $9.99, with immediate download from Amazon.
You can still purchase the book in PDF format from this site, or in paperback from Amazon.com and several other online sellers, including camerabooks.com and bn.com.
I am trying to download pictures onto my computer but do not have the disc I need – at least I think thats what their saying . Can I download the format from a canon site. Will this book give me the know how to download the pics without the disc? Thanks for helping.
HI — It’s hard to tell what the problem is without some more information. You should be able to download the pictures okay without any special software, unless they were taken in the RAW format. In that case, you would need either the software that comes with the camera or some other program that can read the RAW files, such as Adobe Photoshop Elements, Apple Aperture, or some other one. My book on the PowerShot S95 camera does not really spend much time on this sort of issue, so it probably would not be much help. If you want to give some details about any error message you are getting, I could try to help. You also might try posting your question in the Canon Talk forum at dpreview.com.
