What is this exactly?
Writing a book about something as complex as the X-PRO3 takes a long time. But here’s the thing. Quite a bit of the content is available well before the book is in publishable form. So when I wrote the X-H1 book, I decided to test the water and see if some readers might want to read along as soon after I’ve written as humanly possible. (No! You cannot look over my shoulder!) And so I conceived of a “rolling release”, where I package sections of the book and deliver them to readers as they are available. And when the whole thing is done, you get the completed, published eBook in full.
This proved successful with the X-H1, and again with the X-X-T3 books, and so I’m offering it again for this X-PRO3 book.
There will be (at least) three “rolling releases”, giving you huge swaths of the eBook to devour with each tranche.
The benefit to you is you get crucial setup info/explanations NOW! With Release 1.
Release 1 – 260 pages:
Everything Setup related. To kick this off, the first tranche of the rolling release is available (as PDF only), and is a whole 260 page book it its own right. And yet it contains only 3 of the 17 chapters in the manuscript, with info primarily on camera settings and setup.
These are the Settings and setup chapters only, and cover every single setting in the menus, drive menu etc.
- Included are Chapters 1, 3, 14, and 15 (Intro only from 1)
- Table of Contents and Index shows you what is to come.
- Hyperlinks work – and will take you to any included content.
- Fully indexed
- 498 TIPS and tricks in this section of the book alone.
If you consider yourself expert enough to read about settings FIRST, without having everything logically laid out in a completely structured book, then this might suit you.
PLUS, PLUS, PLUS: Also included is a full list of all my settings, with explanations for why things are set up that way. Plus there are author bonuses. Ed. 1 of my Fujifilm Flash book, an XLS spreadsheet with all the camera settings with explanations, and a Phone Companion with all the settings and a summary of each. A $19.95 value right there.
If you love the idea of the Expert’s Rolling Release, please spread the word. The more people who take it up, the more it is likely to happen for future publications.
This is a work in progress, so if you spy any oddities, email me: Info@TonyPhillips.org .
As a bonus, the author (hey! I’m trying to entice you to buy my book!), gives everyone who buys his book a PDF copy of “Phone Companion Settings”. A convenient, fully hyperlinked 38 page Phone Companion booklet covering all camera settings with EASY explanations for each menu item. you can carry with you in your phone for quick reference.
But Wait! There’s more…. A PDF copy of Edition 1 of my other eBook “Mastering Flash with Fujifilm X Cameras”. Plus there’s an XLS spreadsheet listing all camera settings with a brief explanation of each, the author’s own recommendations, and space to note your settings.
All a $19.95 value. (Find out how to obtain these bonuses in the book. )

“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
“As an ebook it’s rather good, written with the more experienced hobbyist in mind and not just a re-write of the manual. For my money it’s better than the other X100S book and is worth a read.” – Nippa
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
The guide is brilliant, thanks! Very useful indeed. Nick Edwards
