Flash photography section of Canon 70D manual

The 70D has the option of a variety of flash set-ups including the built-in pop-up flash as well as adding a separate Canon Speedlite.  

There are 27 pages of content in the guide covering the built-in flash, exposure, red-eye reduction, wireless flash, and speedlite settings.

The 35 pages in the manual that cover shooting with the LCD monitor are a complete waste for me personally as I do not shoot using LCD monitors.  I've been shooting with optical viewfinders for over 40 years and don't plan to change at this point.

I do use the information display constantly to review my images, histogram, and camera settings. With that said, this is a good section of the manual if you do shoot with the LCD monitor.

The  Canon EOS 70D camera kit that is sold with the EF-S 18-135 lens earns a whopping 95% on the Canon Camera Geek 4-5 rating scale. This is one of the highest ratings you'll find on this web site.

When I purchased my Canon EOS 70D I purchased only the camera body.  I already had a collection of LP-E6 batteries and the charger.  The printed manual, the Solution Disk, the Software Instruction Manual Software Disk, and the Camera Instruction Manual Disk that came in the box are all valuable resources to learn about the 70D
