    David Busch’s Sony Alpha a7R II/a7 II Guide to Digital Photography 1st Edition, September 22, 2016

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I purchased David Busch’s Sony Alpha a7R II/a7 II Guide to Digital Photography 1st Edition after buying a Sony a7RII. I am an advanced photographer, who has used a 4X5 view camera (not used much now), 2 1/4 X 2 1/4, 35mm, I have developed color slide film in all film sizes, and printed Cibachrome prints in my darkroom.

    I enjoyed the book very much, it has opened my eyes to many of the camera’s features, but best of all, was communicating with David, he answered my questions and made me aware of several products I can’t live without (in photography that’s about anything). Thanks David!

    The best book you can currently buy about your A7R II/A7 II, January 31, 2016

    I rarely write reviews but I’ve found this book so compelling that I wanted to. This is the best book I have read about my a7R II. The author clearly knows his stuff. If you buy one book about your a7r II/a7 II it should be this one. The author’s writing is lucid and thorough. The book is well organized proceeding from simpler concepts and functions in beginning chapters to the more specific and detailed in later ones. There are pictures and diagrams to supplement readings. The author provides recommendations and suggestions and his reasons for them. Busch also spends time explaining photographic concepts in relation to the camera — this was what put the book over the top for me. The knowledge behind his explanations is obvious. For example the author explains crop factor and how it relates to the camera.

    If you’re looking for a quicker read about your A7 series camera I’d also recommend “Sony a7 Series: From Snapshots to Great Shots” by Brian Smith. Smith’s book doesn’t go into as much detail nor does he provide as much useful background context as David Busch. Smith’s book also lacks detailed explanation of functions on the a7r ii and a7ii — a major weakness in my eyes. That said the book by Brian Smith may get you up and running faster.
