Vol. 31: Going Film Pro II: The Canon EOS 1N: Standard Edition By Shawn M. Tomlinson
Paperback: $19.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
In some ways, the Nikon F5 is easier to use than the Canon EOS 1N, but it is not nearly as elegant. There’s just something about the way the Canon EOS 1N feels in my hands when I’m... More > shooting with it that makes me never want to put it down. In that way, it reminds me much more of the Nikon F4S than the Nikon F5 Practically since I placed the order for the camera, it was inevitable that I would need to write about it. If you are seeking the perfect late-model film SLR camera, you need look no further than the second-to-last pro level Canon EOS 1N. Just load a roll of film, take the camera in your hands and start shooting. You, too, will never want to let it go.< Less
Vol. 28: Medium-Format Photography II: Hasselblad 500c By Shawn M. Tomlinson
Hardcover: $35.95

There... More > it was, a monolith above all other cameras. It was in the pages of the photo magazines, as advertisements occasionally, as part of an article occasionally. The two beacons of perfection, allegedly, were the Hasselblad 500c and the Leica whatever. For some reason, the Leica never caused a spark in me back then. Now, sure, but not then. Canon, Minolta, Nikon and Olympus cameras also were dreams, at the top of many of my wish lists. The Hasselblad 500c, though… that was on a level all its own. Then, suddenly, digital photography dawned and everyone was ditching their film gear. A fellow photographer said, “Hey, do you still want a Hasselblad because a friend of mine’s selling one.” It still was more than two weeks’ salary, but it was cheaper than it had been. I had to have it. And it is an amazing camera< Less

Shawn M. Tomlinson started out in the mid-1970s to be a photographer, but got waylaid as a newspaper reporter, editor, designer, photo editor and photographer. He never stopped creating images,... More > however, first on film, then with digital single-lens reflex cameras. This book, ‘Voyages of Photography: Book 1: 1974-2004’ covers his early film work.

Prints in 3-5 business days
Shawn M. Tomlinson, with the help of fellow photographer Gary W. Ziroli, reconsiders the camera brand that got him started long before digital single-lens reflex cameras existed. In this 12th volume... More > of Shawn M. Tomlinson’s Guide to Photography, the author outlines the history of the camera maker, its film and digital cameras, and explains why Pentax is a viable choice for the serious amateur, enthusiast, semi-pro and professional photographer. From the book: “I was a Pentax Loyalist for years, then a Pentax Apologist, then I rather switched that fight it anymore, then I began to re-appreciate Pentax. ... The point was/is that I write these guide books to help the less-than-wealthy budding photographer get the best equipment possible for the lowest prices possible. ... I write this stuff because I know what it’s like to yearn for the newest, shiniest cameras and lenses, yet at the same time know that I cannot possibly afford them. I know there are a lot of other people out there who have the same problem.”< Less
Vol. 01: Retro Camera Buying Guide By Shawn M. Tomlinson

A lot has changed since I wrote and published this first volume of what became this guide series. One thing hasn’t. I still have the same enthusiasm and joy in photography I had way back at... More > the beginning of the series. I have a lot more knowledge and experience now and, occasionally even get close to taking good photographs. That’s the thing, see. I didn’t know a lot when I originally wrote this guide. I had been working in photography since 1982 professionally. Everything I knew, pretty much, was self-taught. In general, that’s still true. There’s no need for you to do it all by yourself, too, though. This book and this series are meant to help you get going with the basics fast. Yes, OK, I tend to relate my own experiences, but that, too, is meant to help you avoid some basic mistakes I made. And, perhaps, I write in a tad too friendly manner, but think of it as sitting down with me to have a friendly talk about a passion we share: Photography!< Less

Film is the hottest thing in photography since, well, film before the digital photography age. Yet, many photographers either shooting film for the first time or rediscovering it tend to stick with... More > black and white.

Vol. 26: Medium-Format Photography: Getting Started By Shawn M. Tomlinson
Paperback: $23.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Simply put, medium-format photography is quite a bit more complex than shooting with 35mm film SLRs or 35mm-style DSLRs. It takes a bit more skill — and experience — to handle... More > medium-format cameras. Not only do you need to learn to think differently about how you shoot, but you also have a whole new type of equipment to learn. Medium-format cameras produce bigger images, which allows for more detail and greater enlargement. And because they, in general, were designed for professional photographers, the lenses tend to be of better quality that most 35mm lenses, which also adds to the detail in the images. In this book, we’ll take a look at medium-format SLRs and TLRs, and we’ll even touch upon some other types. We’ll also consider a few lenses, although these largely are a matter of choice. And there are far fewer choices for medium-format cameras than for other types. Time to do some weight training and heft those medium-format cameras and lenses into position. Let’s go.< Less

Ancient Photography: Book 4: Canon EOS 10D: Color By Shawn M. Tomlinson
Paperback: $54.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Canon EOS 10D was the company’s first Enthusiast Level digital single-lens reflex camera in 2003. There already were two Pro Level and two Entry Level Canon DSLRs, but Canon needed a... More > camera for the mid level. The 10D filled that spot well with its great color and strong body. I came into this much later. I always recommend buying older, better DSLRs over newer lower-end cameras because it saves money and older cameras were built better, So, when I had the chance to get the 10D for $69, I jumped. It was well worth it.The color straight out of the camera — without editing — was fantastic. I only shot with my 10D for a month. Sadly it died, and I decided to replace it with the next generation Canon EOS 20D. The 20D is the best of Canon’s Enthusiast line, but it doesn’t quite have the color of the 10D. One day, I’ll get another 10D. Every time I shoot with one, I realized just how great an older camera can be. Take a look at these photos and you’ll see what I mean.< Less
