This book, a complete guide to the operation and features of the Canon PowerShot S100 digital camera, is a follow-up to the author's earlier guides to advanced compact digital cameras. The new book explains all operations, features, menus, and controls of the PowerShot S100 camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features. The book does not assume any specialized knowledge by the reader, but clearly explains topics such as autofocus, manual focus, depth of field, aperture priority, shutter priority, HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, white balance, ISO, and macro photography. The book gives details about how to take advantage of the camera's varied array of qSceneq and qCreative Filtersq shooting settings. The guide's more than 200 photographs, almost all in full color, provide illustrations of the camera's controls and menus, and also include examples of the various types of photographs that can be taken using the many creative settings of the camera, including the Creative Filters settings, which let the photographer alter the color processing and other aspects of images; various menu options such as i-Contrast and digital zoom; and the camera's strong set of features for continuous shooting. In addition, the book goes beyond the realm of everyday photography, providing introductions to more advanced topics such as infrared photography, street photography, and creating 3D (three-dimensional) images that can be viewed with conventional red and blue 3D glasses. The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the PowerShot S100, which can record high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound and can take qSuper Slow Motionq movies that slow down action by a factor of eight. In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories available for the camera, including cases, filter adapters, and external flash units; sets forth a list of useful web sites and other resources for further information; and includes a section with helpful qquick tipsq that give particular insights into how to take advantage of the camera's features in the most efficient ways possible.
