This is the EOS 50D guide that you want,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon 50D: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)This is a great book. It is definitely not a rehash of the owner's manual. It is, instead, a good guide to digital photography using the 50D's settings. There are practical illustrations and actual, realistic pictures, with details, to show what the text means.
The size of this guide book is ideal.
If you own an EOS 50D camera, or are thinking about getting one, then get this book.

Not what I expected,
This review is from: Canon 50D: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)This is more of a photography 101 book than a manual to extend knowledge of the Canon 50D. In fact, I would judge that the 50D specific information in this book represents only about 10% of content. If you are new to photography and have purchase the 50D as your first DSLR, then this book might make sense. However, if you already know the basics of photography, this is not likely to provide much in terms of new information.

Super easy read,
This review is from: Canon 50D: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)I've been using my 50D for a few months now, and an XTi previously. I figured I knew about everything this camera could do...I was wrong. Although very basic is some areas, this book doesn't treat you like a total newby. It not only tells you how to use a control, it shows you why with great shots and easy to understand instructions. I'm not finished with this yet, but when I am, I'm sure that I will be a much better photographer, that gets full use of my equipment. It's a great time to start volume #2 Jeff.
