Still Good: Photographer’s Guide ebooks by Alexander White on sale for $8 each: Fuji X100S, various Panasonic LX*, Sony RX1/RX10/RX100 models, Etc

Alexander S. White has written a lot of camera guides for various RAWsumers/serious-compacts and a number of his ebooks are currently on sale for $8 for the Kindle! You can find them all under his name.

How useful these type of ebooks can be to you depends on many factors. For example, if you purchased every single Sony RX100 camera since they started coming out, you may have no need for the RX100 Mark V book. On the other hand, if the Sony RX-something is your first ever Sony digital camera, a camera guide can be helpful in getting you familiarized with the world of Sony.

Among the camera guides that are going for $8 as of the time of writing:

+ Fuji X100S
+ Sony RX1R II
+ Sony RX10 IV, I
+ Sony RX100 V, IV, II, I
+ Nikon P900, P610, P600, P510, B700, etc
+ Panasonic LX10/LX15, LX100, LX5, ZS70/TZ90
+ Canon S95
+ some Leica D-Lux models

There are two ways to get a feel for these camera guides before buying them:

1. you can get read Kindle sample (typically the first few pages of the book)
2. if you go to the hardback/print version of the book, it may have “Look Inside” enabled. “Look Inside” often lets you jump all over the book, and that’s the best way to get a feel for it since you can read actual content, not just the beginning

PS: you can find out at any time how much no-rush shipping digital credits you have by doing to amazon.com/norushcredits – it’s easy to remember, no rush credits. As far as I know, there’s no way to tell ahead of time whether an ebook is eligible or not for no-rush-credits.

Buyer Beware: Low Quality Camera Guides on Amazon

While price-checking some cameras I noticed another trap for potential customers. It seems like the content farms and the content-generating bots have discovered another source of revenue, camera guides. There’s a bunch of these low-quality low-price (just look at the customer reviews!) that are available on Amazon. For example this one author has e-published 94 of them! Look at the number of pages too, how much can you say about a complicated camera in 13 pages?

(ENDED) Mag Sale: Outdoor Pho $4.67/yr, Digital Pho $4.74/yr, Digital Photo PRO $7.64/yr, Etc

The weekend is over, and so is this weekend sale 🙂

A number of Photographer’s Guide ebooks by Alexander White on sale for $8 each: Fuji X100S, various Panasonic LX*, Sony RX1/RX10/RX100 models, Etc

PS2: if you have any digital no-rush-credits in your account and/or promotional Amazon credits, they will be applied automatically towards the purchase before your gift card balance and credit card is charged. Some publishers may not allow digital credits to be applied towards the purchase of their ebooks, so YMMV. The order receipt/email will tell you for sure after the purchase.
