With digital camera technology advancing rapidly in the last few years, the ability to capture these actions shots is no longer restricted to professional series cameras. Nina looks at what features are important for this type of wildlife photography and also considers the impact of lens choice, not only in terms of performance but also from the perspective of manageability when out in the field.

This third edition book includes detailed explanation on extender (teleconverter) compatibility. It also covers the comprehensive focusing systems found on recent EOS models, such as the EOS 5D Mark IV, EOS 90D, EOS 6D Mark II and new flagship EOS-1D X Mark III cameras.

In addition this book has been updated to reflect the new EOS R-series mirrorless cameras – the EOS R and RP – and the settings needed to make this type of photography a reality with these cameras.

There's also a new reference section, providing extra information for newcomers to photography with a Canon DSLR or mirrorless camera, to help tackle this advanced area of photography.

Framing, lighting and composition are also explored in-depth and as always the techniques are illustrated with hundreds of Nina's own images from around the world.
