Just want to let you know that I’m finding your new XPro2 ebook extremely helpful, and this after using my XPro2 camera for 3 1/2 weeks in Europe. Finding all kinds of helpful info on settings, etc. Chris Morrow

Really enjoying your book on the X-Pro2 for the detail and also the tone, which is very refreshing after all those technical books that make you want to go to sleep! Dominic Robertson
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
“Your X-Pro 2 book just arrived and I am loving it. I’m new to Fuji after a decade plus of shooting Nikon DSLR’s. This book is the perfect resource for me. And, I love your writing style too. Feel like you’re sitting down next to me talking about this wonderful camera and how to better understand all its capabilities!” – Russ Stamp
“I’m enjoying the book so far. Love your high level of detail and you have definitely left no stone unturned. This book should come bundled with every X-T2 camera!!!” – Wayne Sorensen
“Your books are a great help. Many thanks! I’m a fan! I have already read your recent interview on the Fujifilm blog btw.” – Dr. Thomas Gamstaetter

“The best and most complete book on the Fuji cameras.” – George Dalsheimer
“At first I’d like to thank you for your book. It’s helping me a lot!!!! There are some amazing tricks so helpful, one that I most like until now is the trick to change ISO quickly (page 134), thank you for that!” – Danilo Siqueira
“Your book is the most informative one of all the Fuji X books or ebooks that I own with lots of tips that I hadn’t been aware of.” – Michael Zapf
“The guide is brilliant, thanks! Very useful indeed.” – Nick Edwards

Experts Rolling Release
Welcome to The Complete Guide to Fujifilm’s X-H1 – Experts Rolling Edition
What is this exactly?
Writing a book about something as complex as the X-H1 takes a long time. But here’s the thing. Quite a bit of the content is actually available well before the book is in publishable form. So, on prompting from many customers, I decided to progressively release this content so that X-H1 owners can read along as soon after I’ve written as humanly possible. (No! You cannot look over my shoulder!)
The “rolling release” consists of packaged sections of the book which are delivered to you as soon as they are completed. When the whole book is complete, you get the published eBook in full.
I imagined at least three “rolling releases” during development, giving you huge swaths of the eBook to devour each time. Clearly there will be more.
The benefit to you is you get crucial setup info/explanations
Included now are Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, & 15 – and Firmware 1.10 updates!
Welcome to the fourth rolling release. It is available as PDF (only), and is now a whole 525 page book it its own right. And yet it contains 10 of the planned 17 chapters. Contains info on all camera settings and setup.
If you consider yourself expert enough to read about settings FIRST, without having everything logically laid out until in a whole book, then this just might be for you.
The downside for me, is that this actually takes more time to do. But I’m hoping that it’s a real hit, and might become a thing of the future. Which means, for future books, several hundred pages of settings and setup info will be available about a month or so after I receive my production copy camera.
What else is included?
You get to see the whole Table of Contents and Index for the planned final version of the book. (All that other content is already in the manuscript, and being fleshed out daily.)
Hyperlinks for included content work as expected. Hyperlinks for non-included content are obviously not active.
I’ll write to you regularly to update you on what’s going on with the development.
When a new section is available in the rolling release, I’ll blast you off your own personal download link.
