The word has spread on the web that the MIII User’s Guide (6967 words) can help folks begin making great pictures with their Mark III in short order; we are selling the guides all over the world to all types of photographers.   With 9 menus containing 40 items and four Custom Function groups with 57 Custom Functions, the only other option is to spend a week curled up with your camera manual trying to figure everything out!  The camera is quite complex and many of the basic camera operations are very different from previous generation Canon digital cameras.  And if you are moving up in class from a 20-D or a 30D that goes double!


The MIII UG includes instructions on how to set and use all of the menu items and Custom Functions that I am currently using.  The first (free) update included detailed instruction on how to calibrate your lenses with the amazing Micro-Adjustment Custom Function.  In addition, the UG includes basic directions for using Digital Photo Professional (DPP), the packaged RAW processing software that comes (on CD) with the MIII.   The current versions of BreezeBrowser now support the MIII and the Adobe Camera Raw plug-in for the Mark III RAW is available for use only with CS3.
