Preface

You don't want good pictures from your new Canon EOS Rebel T2i—you demand outstanding photos. After all, the Rebel T2i is the most advanced entry-level camera that Canon has ever introduced. It boasts 18 megapixels of resolution, blazing-fast automatic focus, and cool new features like the real-time preview system called Live View and honest-to-gosh full HD movie-making capabilities. But your gateway to pixel proficiency is dragged down by the slim little book included in the box as a manual. You know everything you need to know is in there, somewhere, but you don't know where to start. In addition, the camera manual doesn't offer much information on photography or digital photography. Nor are you interested in spending hours or days studying a comprehensive book on digital SLR photography that doesn't necessarily apply directly to your T2i.

What you need is a guide that explains the purpose and function of the T2i's basic controls, how you should use them, and why. Ideally, there should be information about file formats, resolution, aperture/priority exposure, and special autofocus modes, but you'd prefer to read about those topics only after you've had the chance to go out and take a few hundred great pictures with your new camera. Why isn't there a book that summarizes the most important information in its first two or three chapters, with lots of illustrations showing what your results will look like when you use this setting or that?

Now there is such a book. If you want a quick introduction to the T2i's focus controls, flash synchronization options, how to choose lenses, or which exposure modes are best, this book is for you. If you can't decide on what basic settings to use with your camera because you can't figure out how changing ISO or white balance or focus defaults will affect your pictures, you need this guide.
