Mr. Judge does an excellent job of highlighting the benefits of a solid Market Driven DSLR Canon and Nikon. He makes some excellent distinctions between , Point and Shoot, Bridge Camera, and DSLR. I now have an idea of what to consider when I am ready to buy. I believe every camera enthusiast , should quickly inform themselves with this book before buying a camera. The book is well written and easy to understand. I am not a photographer , but surely would like to achieve some success. Mr Judge,s books really gives the preparation , for a "Wanting To Be Photographer". I have read three of his books and will proceed to read the rest. Easy reading, very informative, and really helps the decision making .
