Yay! Print copies of my latest book, Canon EOS M: From Snapshots to Great Shots, are now in stock at Amazon.com and direct from Peachpit. It’s just $14 at Amazon, which is a great deal for a full-color photography book. Read more about the book in Available Now: Canon EOS M: From Snapshots to Great Shots.

Here’s a secret: If you really want to learn about something, write a book about it. Even if you know the material—in my case, digital photography—it’s another thing to turn around and teach that knowledge. You’ll gain a deeper knowledge, guaranteed.
Photographer Ben Long wrote a great post at CreativePro.com about his iPad photo workflow, which includes a HyperDrive Colorspace UDMA 2 device for storing image backups and Photos Info Pro for assigning metadata to the photos on the iPad. Check it out:

I have my own lists, of course. For example, the next edition will include more detail about working wirelessly, using devices like the CamRanger and CameraMator, and will include the information about iPhoto and Adobe Photoshop Touch that had to appear in an addendum (because the book was literally being printed when Apple announced the third-generation iPad and iPhoto).
Speaking of the second edition, you can pre-order the book now: iPad for Photographers: Master the Newest Tool in your Camera Bag (2nd Edition)
