It's 96 pages and covers a great number of topics through colour management, shooting and processing. A great little free guide from Canon. [tags]Canon, EOS, digital photography, guidebook[/tags]

It was exclusively with my 17-85 EF-S lens, and only within the zoom range of 17 to about 40mm. I read Richard's page over a number of days (scroll and you'll see why it took days) and discovered that the issue was both wide ranging and attributable to a vast possible number of [...]
