I've nearly finished reading this book and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I have finally got a grip on manual white balance for indoor shooting. Thank you. I have been having some issues with tack sharp focusing and shooting in AF-S and recomposing has solved my problem. Thanks.
I had one question regarding your statement on predictive shooting. I was under the impression that it takes a very short time for the camera to take the picture after the shutter is fully released. The delays of some of my older point and shoots do not occur here. You state on p 331 it takes .85sec or 85 milliseconds for this to happen. Isn't 85 milliseconds .085 seconds or just under 1/10 of a second? Intuitively I think this quicker time is correct. I have not found any other flaws with your book if this indeed is one. Thank you.
