Another vote for David Busch. I got my wife a T3i for our anniversary and got her the Busch book to go with it. It's far better than the manual for newcomers to the DSLR arena.

I'll vote for David Busch as well.

I have a 50D and my wife has a 60D. We have both of the Busch books for these. I have the "Snapshots to Great Shots" book for my 50D, and she has the "Digital Field Guide" by Charlotte Lowrie for her 60D.

I definitely have gotten more use out of the Busch book for my 50D. My wife hasn't spent much time in either of her books, but she mentioned some shortcomings in the Lowrie book. The Busch book is far thicker, so it must be better. :)

Aside from a book, are you a visual person that would benefit from a DVD tutorial?

I've bought a couple of Blue Crane series DVD's from this ebay seller....

or with added flash use and video....

Also available from Amazon, B&H, and others.


Megapixels and high ISO are a digital photographers heroin. Once you have a little, you just want more and more. It doesn't stop until your bank account is run dry.

here is the table of contents from David Busch's 7D guide so you can see what is offered in this book
sorry the first one is upside down, and my book mark is a receipt from bcferries and thats why it says purchase!

Thank you for taking the time to post this for me. I'm ordering the book tonight. And thank you everyone for your suggestions. There are lots of resources at my disposal and I'm sure I'll have questions for you later!

Read the white papers. That was enough for me. It's really not that complicated at all.

I found Canon 7D: From Snapshots to Great Shots by Nicole S. Young to be very helpful.

I found numerous typos and material that clearly referred to earlier/different models in the David Bush book. If you know that this material is wrong, yiou can just ignore it, but if you are truly new to the 7D and Canon cameras in general, it may steer you wrong.
