I also felt there were far too may references to other sources of information or other chapters or pages in the book itself, at times it felt like there were 3 or 4 references to other sources on a page -- I was thinking -- if you didn't want to talk about any of this here why bring it up? As has been stated in most reviews the page numbering doesn't match the index so when you do want to look things up it's a challenge.
Also, as the other reviews point out it does feel like this book uses a lot of material already printed in other books about other cameras in the same line. . .
I think if you look at the chapter titles it illustrates why this book isn't right for me. . .
1. A6000 in a Nutshell
2. Author's Personal Camera Settings
3. Quick Guide to the A6000
4. Using Legacy Glass
5. WIFI, NFC and APPS
6-11. Go over each Menu
12. Movie Mode
13+ Non camera specific information
In the first 3 chapters we have 2 quick guides and the Author's settings. . . then we go into legacy glass, then into WIFI . . . As I read the book (cover to cover) It seemed odd to me that a discussion of using legacy glass and WiFi would show up in the book before a detailed look at the A6000. . . As you can see going through the rest of the chapter titles -- there really isn't a detailed guide. . . Just some quick guides, discussion of other features, and reference like descriptions of the menu options. . .
Ultimately I did learn things from the book, although I haven't picked it up since I finished reading it -- whenever I have questions about how to do something, or why I would make certain settings changes I find resources online.
In scanning thru the book, it seems to be very thorough and well-written, with plenty of plain English explanations and descriptions. Definitely more than just a "manual" that simply tells you what all the buttons and menus mean. It talks about all the buttons, all the menu options, plus much more re how and when to use certain settings etc. Seems to be a good teaching guide in addition to a "user" guide. It's a little over an inch thick -so there is plenty here to read. My first impression is that this will be a very good resource for me. One immediate downside I notice though is that although the pictures on the cover are beautiful color photos (taken with the a6000 I assume), all the actual pictures used as samples to explain items are black and white! The B&W photos don't help very much with the explanations - can't see the nuances that are being explained in the book. Plenty of helpful pictures throughout the book, but you can't get any appreciation of what's being described or explained because the pics are B&W. In my view, this really craters a huge potential value in this book. Aside from the useless B&W photos, the context, tone, method of explanation, and thoroughness all seem top notch. I'm sure I'll still learn a great deal.
UPDATE: 29 Aug 20014
I can provide an update now that I've gone through the Guide, grouped in + and - below.
This is a great resource for a6000 owners and I'm changing my rating from 3 stars to 4.
+ Re my original comments about the pics in the Guide being in B&W ... I discovered that the author does indeed provide a free full color PDF version of the book if you send him an email with your receipt attached. Once you download the free color PDF version, you can see all the material in color, including all the sample pics. Can also download the PDF version to your other devices. [This free download is mentioned in the intro pages prior to the Table of Contents, so you may miss it if you are not looking for it.]
+ This not a "pocket guide" by any means. At almost 600 pages, it's pretty thick. But I can't think of any material that was superfluous or irrelevant. Except for a few pages devoted to plugging the author's photography blog and photography seminars, it was all good, useful content provided in a tone focused towards users that are a few steps beyond "beginner." I'll take the few pages of advertising given all the other good, succint, plain language guidance and tips.
+ Extra tips and techniques that apply to digital photography, regardless of camera, are provided in the back.
+ Guide is well-written and provides short explanations, detailed explanations, sample pictures, sample menu screen shots, and tables for quick reference. Every item, button, and menu option is explained in a friendly, understandable manner.
+ I sat down with this Guide, a6000 in hand, and reviewed all my settings while reading the Guide explanations.
-All the page references are off by 2 pages. For example, the Guide (and Index) may refer to an item on page 31, but the actual item being referred to is on page 29. Maybe this was caused by the addition of the 2 intro pages after final edit?
-A couple of instances where the exact same text is repeated on multiple pages. Not sure if this was intentional or not. Repeated text makes it seems like the book was not closely edited.
What I needed was practical advice on what default settings to use and also how to pick settings for special situations. The author does a great job with that. It becomes every clear that he has extensive use this camera and knows its strengths & weaknesses. He does love the camera! It's unfortunate the illustrations are in black & white.
I assume the original plan was for color and perhaps the publisher got nervous near the end and didn't want to commit to color -- unfortunate. Color photos would have been nice, but I still love the book and a very reasonable price.
