Sony eBook V2 Released
The Sony Advanced Cyber-shot eBook moves up to Version 2.0.
Owners of the original Sony eBook were thrilled with its revelations about the DSC-F707/717 cameras and the new Version 2 includes the 5-megapixel DSC-V1 and 8-megapixel DSC-F828 Cyber-shot cameras, each explored in depth.
Revised and updated throughout, the new 322 page eBook features interactive examples and even movie illustrations imbedded in the pages. A total of over 900 images help explain concepts as small as photons and as big as panoramics.
Also included are custom iNovaFX Photoshop Actions created exclusively to the needs of the V1 and 828 cameras. Gone are barrel distortion and white balance errors. Chapters devoted to these cameras feature hundreds of InfoBites, author Peter iNova's fast-acting factoids that help you focus in on the most helpful tips and techniques under discussion.
As with Version 1, the eBook image quality is superb. Images are presented in two scaleable files, one for speed, the other for ultimate quality. The High Resolution file can be viewed on your computer screen up to 200% magnification while the Ultra Resolution file can zoom in to 400% without running into pixels. That's like holding a book mere inches from your nose. Viewed on the included Adobe Reader, the entire eBook can be scanned at thumbnail size and jumps from one end to the other are instantaneous.
"I'm excited about the interactivity," said author Peter iNova, "Now direct image-to-image comparisons are just a mouse rollover or click away. And wait till you see what can be done with the Sony 828's RAW mode using NightShot!"
Enduring aspects of the eBook include the seven-step Photoshop course, a 24-page self-guided photography awareness course, chapters on the individual cameras, and the growing number of original iNovaFX Photoshop Actions that solve problems, fix errors, enhance images, facilitate art and expand one's photographic repertoire.
Dozens of new iNovaFX Actions give the photographer control over vignetting (either to eliminate it, or put some into an image for effect), plus several new iLiner Actions that turn photography into illustrations and graphics. Other new Actions bring nostalgic and museum-quality presentation effects to monochrome (iRustica Actions) and color (iHalcyon Actions) images. The iHalcyon series draws inspiration from the coming motion picture "Sky Commander" where style and technique paint every frame.
