The E-M1 II in plain English!
Written for Olympus’ outstanding E-M1 Mark II camera, this is This is EVERYTHING E-M1 II explained in easy to understand language! It is the Manual on Steroids and much more… In it, I assume you are a photographer, so I don’t dive too deeply in to the basics of photography. Everything comes with clear tutorials and examples.
So if you’re uncertain about anything your E-M1 II does, grab this book! It’s packed with clear tutorials and examples, with over 500 tips, tricks, and tweaks to help you master photography with your E-M1 II.
Why this book?
The OM-D E-M1 II is a great camera that implements sensor-shifting in order to achieve a whopping 50 megapixels out of its outstanding Micro Four-Thirds sensor! Its engineers also gave it one of the most customizable and nuanced user interfaces ever. While a good move, even experienced users will sometimes need help getting their arms around all of the different permutations of features or groups of features spread across different menus.
In this detailed and easy-to-read reference, professional photographer Tony Phillips simplifies the complexity and provides the shortest learning curve for this infinitely-configurable camera.
This 444-page full-color book:
* Is packed with over 500 tips and tricks to help you master photography with an E-M1 II.
* Includes all the author’s camera settings – with explanations.
* Explains why all glass (Olympus lenses) are not born equal.
* Provides an explanation of every function in plain English, with relevant menu items grouped together so you can get a good feel for all of the features’ dependencies.
* Includes a step-by-step guide to Wi-Fi & the Smart Phone app, including cool things to do with it.

* Has a great, rational exploration of RAW vs JPG.

The book is really (can’t put it down) really great … such a relief to find a friendly conversational style of writing (so different from the manual). Roland Herrera

Your EBOOK is excellent….clear and easy to understand. Your writing style is concise, to the point and very easy to follow. It is idiot proof. Laura Knight
It’s a really well thought out book. It’s giving me insights into the camera that I could never get from the manual. Great job Tony! Rick Berger
Just a quick note to say how useful your book has proved to be. I have the Kindle version on my iPad and iPhone and it has enabled me to really develop my knowledge of this superb camera. Christopher Harland
I have been talking your book up. It’s very well done. As a 45 year nikon guy, this was my favorite book on a new camera. George Whitson

“I owned the x100 for a few years and upgraded to the x100s about 9 months ago. I was pretty familiar with the camera, and have many years of (amateur photographic) experience, but your Complete Guide to Fujifilm’s X100s Camera has expanded my knowledge in many ways.” – Paul Rogers
