Now that the Nikon Coolpix P500 book has been released in PDF format, I have a little more time to take care of other things, like posting this update about the status of the more recent camera guide books.
The situation with Amazon has improved somewhat; the Panasonic Lumix LX5 book is now listed as In Stock for immediate shipping, and the Leica D-Lux 5 book is, also. For some reason, the Canon PowerShot S95 book is still listed as shipping within 2-3 weeks from Amazon. However, if you go to the listing for “14 New” under the main listing, you will find the book available from other sellers, including camerabooks.com, who get their books directly from me and who ship quickly and reliably. Also, I am selling the PowerShot S95 book as a third-party seller on Amazon, with the seller name “alexstrawhite.” I am using the “Fulfillment by Amazon” system, which means I have sent a load of books to Amazon, so the books can be shipped from Amazon’s warehouse with fast shipping.
The Nikon Coolpix P500 book has been sent to the print-on-demand company, Lightning Source; I hope that the files will be approved soon and that the books will start being printed there within about a week. It will then take a few more days for the book to show up for sale at Amazon. It will be interesting to see what sort of shipping schedule that book has when it starts appearing on Amazon.
That’s the basic update for now. Soon I will start on the next book, though I haven’t decided which camera to write about yet.
