This Snapshots book will teach owners how to take great shots using their new Panasonic GX7 or GM1 camera. Users learn how to create the type of photos that inspired them to buy the camera in the first place. Featuring beautiful images; clear design; and a friendly knowledgeable voice, everything in the book is in service of creating a great image.

Starting with the top ten things users needed to know about the camera, photographer Rob Knight carefully guides readers through the operating features. Owners get practical advice from a pro on which settings to use when, great shooting tips, and even end of chapter assignments. The book will also include coverage of shooting video. Both the GX7 and GM1, which have the same sensor and are similar in operation, will be covered.
