This eBook is the definitive instruction guide
for the Fuji FinePix Pro S2.


This book helps you master the use of the Fuji S2 digital SLR, with a full description of the camera features and lots of useful tips and background information. This is the book that should have been the manual! Destined to be a classic. A must-read book for any S2 user.

  • S2 metering and autofocus modes explained in plain English! Wonder what the matrix metering pattern looks like and how it works? Can't figure out Dynamic autofocus, Release Priority, Focus Priority, Closest Focus Priority, and a host of other terms used to describe features of the focusing system? Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Fuji FinePix Pro S2 explains these terms and accompanying techniques in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller.
  • A complete instruction manual and an introduction to relevant digital issues in one book! Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Fuji FinePix Pro S2 manages to not only fully describe every feature of the S2 in clear, easy-to-understand language, but gives you rich, technical background for many of the critical issues that confront digital camera users.
  • Includes useful Depth of Field spreadsheet! You'll also receive Thom's Excel spreadsheet, which allows you to calculate depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any Nikon lens. But that's not everything! You'll also get Excel workbooks of macro, flash, and other calculators (know how to calculate the GN of multiple flashes or the effective GN when bouncing? You will if buy this book!).
