Tony Northrup's Photography Buying Guide: How to Choose a Camera, Lens, Tripod, Flash, & More (英语) 平装 – 2013年11月15日
Award-winning author and photographer Tony Northrup has published more than 30 books covering technology and photography. Among other titles, Tony is author of Stunning Digital Photography and Adobe Lightroom 6 / CC Video Book: Training for Photographers. Tony lives in Waterford, CT with his wife and daughter. You can learn more about Tony by liking his Facebook photography page at http: //www.facebook.com/NorthrupPhotography, following him on Twitter (@TonyNorthrup), viewing his photography portfolio at www.northrupphotography.com, or emailing him at email@example.com.
The book covers camera bodies, lenses, tripods, flash units, and more! It makes recommendations for newbies, amateurs, and professionals with budgets of all kinds.
I especially recommend this book to anyone looking to start digital photography.
Written in the same style as Tony's videos, this book reads like he is sitting in the room with you and a few friends having a casual chat. He provides a fair and seemingly unbiased approach with plenty of great insight into the inevitable "Canon versus Nikon" debate, as well as every other major manufacturer's products. And for those with a long standing brand loyalty, like me, Tony provides chapters dedicated to each manufacturer's product line.
It doesn't end there. The Guide covers everything you might need; filters, extension tubes, computers, and remote releases are all in there.
In the Kindle version, hyperlinks below each QR code for the hours and hours of video worked seamlessly. Tony provides extensive hyperlinks throughout the text to both Amazon's offers on certain products, and to the manufacturer's site or other retailers for additional product information. I do not know about other readers, but my Amazon wishlist just grew significantly.
Let me give you just one example. The Manfroto carbon tripod Manfrotto MK293C4-A0RC2 4 Section Carbon Tripod Kit with Quick Release Ball Head (Black)_item just replaced the more expensive Gitzo on my got-to-have list. What sold me? Tony's Guide and video that demonstrated the horizontal center post feature that just does not stand out in other on-line descriptions.
If I have to fault anything about the Kindle version of Tony's Guide, it might be that the illustrations occasionally obscure a little of the text when viewed on my Fire. The work round is simple - rotate from portrait to landscape, or the other way round and voila. If this creates a problem, why not buy both a print and digital copy? It might be worth a little more to have ready access to Tony's Guide any time you are considering your next photographic equipment from a lens filter to a top of the line system.
