Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the camera—charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more—photography pro Nicole Young then carefully guides you through the modes of the camera, offering practical advice on choosing your settings, expert shooting tips, and end-of-chapter “challenges” to get you up and running with your EOS 60D.
