With this book (I have the kindle version) you will get Tony's and Chelsea's professional (true and tried) opinion on just about any equipment you will need. The guide is very honest, doesn't pick a side (Canon or Nikon) and even recommend some third party companies because they are the best bang for your buck. They give suggestions for people just starting out with a very small budget all the way to the pros with $$$ to spend.
What I personally like about this book is the fact that it's almost like a FAQ book where two professionals that make a living from photography answer all the questions you might have about every type equipment you can imagine for this field. Great reference book when you are ready to buy a flash. or upgrade your monitor, or go to a full size camera, or a new lens, or tripod... you get the point I think.
You also become part of a very unique community where Chelsea and Tony both will answer your questions if you happen to have any. It's almost like joining a very big family.
I highly recommend ALL their books to people just getting into photography to pros looking to get new gear.
Just see for yourself about the book. Take a look inside since you can do that on amazon. You will love the rest of the book.
Let me also add the book is VERY easy to read. it's not 'dumbed' down, but just everything is explained really well which won't confuse a novice photographer.
I believe in 2016 and 2017 a lot of gears hit the market as well, I believe Tony should update the book with the latest gears available. There is a lot of new players now we can not ignore like Godox, yes small company but they are growing very fast and they are selling much, so I believe it is worth to talk about such companies when it comes to gears. One thing very important I didn't not saw any talk about camcorders for video, I believe camcorders is the best solution for video then mirrorless then DSLR.
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.
