  1. Get up-to-speed and shooting with confidence with your Canon EOS M5 camera. This mirrorless model, the flagship of the Canon M-series, is a powerful tool, not to be underestimated in its capabilities or customisation potential. Learn how to get the most out of it with this in-depth, no-nonsense guide by experienced Canon tutor Nina Bailey.

    It's written for new photographers and experienced DSLR owners alike. So whether you've bought the EOS M5 as your first interchangeable lens camera or as a portable and lightweight alternative to your normal EOS camera, then this book will provide you with all the information you need to get to grips with it.

    This interesting and capable camera inherits many of the features and functions available on the existing EOS DSLR series, whilst also emcompassing some of the technology found on Canon's high end compact series of cameras.

    You'll learn about the basics of photography and the key controls found on the M5. There's help on understanding how to combine the main settings of ISO, shutter speed and aperture, where problems can occur with your exposures and how you can apply overrides to the settings to get better results. After looking at the automated shooting modes – the Basic Zone – you'll move onto the Creative Zone, using modes like P, Av, Tv and Manual, learning how you can take creative control of your camera.

    The focusing system on the M5 works differently to what you may have experienced before, so you'll find out about the focusing methods and modes and which scenarios to use each set-up. There are other ways to customise your camera too – learn about the Custom Controls and how to tailor your M5 to shoot your style of shooting.

    All this and more – by the end of the book you'll be able to use the basic and advanced camera controls and overrides, be confident in handling and customising your camera and be able to use it to your full photographic potential

I want to thank Nina Bailey for a very well written and informative manual. I have skimmed through the manual and now I am reading and practicing with the M5. For 20 years I have been using a point and shoot camera and now I welcome the ability to compose and control my exposures. As an Engineer I find the manual presents information in a logical and concise manner. That saves a great deal of my time. Well done. I recommend this manual to any M5 owner, no matter the experience level.
