I have good news for you, particularly for those of you that are on the fence on whether you want to by HDC or not. It's totally understandable to be on the fence. Neither I, nor the publisher, have been revealing much about the book (due to business reasons) until its release last week. I understand most of you only have a vague idea of the exact content of the book. That's about to change.
While playing with Google Blog Search today, I came upon HDC at ThatTechnicalBookstore.com. It's not all too Special finding HDC on online bookstores. In fact, searching for "Hacking Digital cameras" on Google reveals 14 pages of links. What's special with "That technical Bookstore" is that it has the latest information regarding HDC. It's got a summarized Table of Contents and the actual final book cover. Other online retailers are still showing the preliminary cover at this time.
This prompted me to do some more thorough digging. It turned out Wiley (the publisher) has recently posted the latest HDC information on its web site. Wiley not only displayed a Table of Contents summary, but also have a detailed Table of contents, Index, and a sample chapter excerpt to download in Adobe Acrobat format (PDF). To call the entire 44 page chapter a "sample" or a "excerpt" really downplays the amount of information you will receive. That's almost 8% of the book. Check it out for yourself.
For those of you that are on the fence, I suggest you take a good look at the detailed table of contents and the sample chapter to make up your mind. Even if you decide not to buy the book, at least keep the free sample chapter. It will come in handy for you when you decide to perform some DIY projects with your cameras or other electronics.
