5.0 out of 5 stars A must get if you have a Canon 450D 4 May 2009
By Mr. Jon Forster VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. It covers all the aspects of using the camera. The great thing is it gives examples of the same 'shot' with different camera settings. It also explains everything in plain English without treating you as an idiot!

In simple terms if you buy the Eos 450d then also buy this book so you can learn how to get the best from your camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide for EOS 450D 29 Dec 2008
By Ofsted
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having recently acquired a Canon EOS450D I read the supplied manual thoroughly. I then obtained "The Digital Field Guide" by Charlotte Lowrie - and despite some experience in the field was still struggling.

The DUMMIES guide is way better at doing what it says on the cover! I would thoroughly recommend it to a new user of this CAnon Camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference for the Canon 450D 15 Feb 2009
By S. Cole
Format:Paperback
Great guide for progressing from digital to SLR! Having purchased a Canon 450D without much knowledge of the SLR language this book has explained all the TV, AV and ADEPS simply so I now know how to adjust my shutter speed to obtain good all round focus! Very useful guide if you don't feel you are classed as a beginner but want better understanding than the camera instruction manual gives.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely useful and easy to read 27 Feb 2009
By Aaron
Format:Paperback
I strongly recommend this book to any new owner of Canon EOS 450D, like me. I've found it really easy to read. The author has covered all the functions thoroughly and make the off-putting technical jagons otherwise appalling to novices crystal clear.The printing and bounding are excellent. Full color photos, neat illustions...really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canon EOS450D For Dummies. 10 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
Like the majority of the 'For Dummies' series this publication sets out in plain English, or at least 'American English' how to get the most from the camera in question. I consider it an essential supplement to the 'Users Manual' accompanying the camera.
Although I upgraded to the 450D from the 400D I still consider the book a worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great 31 Jan 2010
By JP Kerr
Format:Paperback
This books is great. I've got lots of 'Dummies' books but this is by far the best one. Not only does it explain the use of this camera but it also helps to understand basic such as ISO, aperture, shuuter speed, etc. It is well written and the author has a great way about her teaching. I can't recommend it enough.
