    Purchased but have not had time to look at it yet...although for what it is worth, I have purchased all of Tony's other books on Fuji cameras/flash and he is meticulous, thorough, probably knows more about Fuji cameras than the people making them...and if you don't like it, there is a two week money back guarantee (see bottom of website page)...

    I purchased his T1 book and like his still of writing. Will get the T2 as I am not quite getting the shots I got with the T1 yet, especially flare from lighting shooting in RAW. My T1 was gorgeous with that, but not the T2, so need to read up incase I have something set up wrong or technique !!

    Hi Shirley

    TBH, I can't remember, but there were no problems. I will try the T2 a bit later and report back :)

    great book, best yet. and a fine service too, with the extras - flash manual + Excel spreadsheet with settings.
    what can I say: the Kaizen of manuals ?

    This is an excellent book. G0es far beyond the manual in explaining what happens and why. I read it on my Surface Pro touchscreen; the hyperlinks are well organized and easy to navigate.

    Anyone know of a book on the X-T2?
    Don't want digital anything: it's hard to carry my PC around with me and Amazon are strugling to delivery my order of a 75 mile long extension cable!
    I'd like a book, just a book. One with pages that I can find quickly.
    Anyone know of one?

    "Expensive" is what you make of it. His X-Pro2 book is $45 on Amazon. Based on the XT-2 book so far and how much more I've gotten from my $2000 or so camera investment, I would say it would be money well spent.

    I´ve read his books both on the X-T1 and X-T2 and consider them mandatory reading to get to know your camera. Yes, they´re that good. As mentioned before the book on the X-T2 is 641pp! Read it from front to back and find myself going back every now and then for advice on functions and settings

    Couldn't agree more - loving the peace after a manic Christmas to revisit the XT-2 ebook and realising (again!) - just how much I am underutilising this camera's incredible functionality. I will more than likely buy the print version as well - stuff goes into my depleting brain cells (and more readily stays there !) when I have hard copy with my scribbles all over it! Thank you to Tony - he's 'enhanced' my original investment a hundredfold.

    Have the settings been updated for new firmware options?
