5.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a gift which waswell received. 26 Oct 2013
By Dale A. Haines VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was purchased for my wife since fighting her way through the semi-Jinglish hand book which came with her Canon was getting no where on some of the more advanced functions.
This book apparently cleared up several sticking points and she has said that she is a lot hapier with some of her camera's functions now.
I at least no longer have to appear like an idiot when I didn't understand how to set the thing up either :-)

Good for a beginner as it covers the field quite well. Written in an American style which can be irritating, however is better than some of the other authors.

Takes the mystery out of the principles of photography for digital cameras.
Gives examples of utilizing the inbuilt automatic settings then also
experiments with changing some things like shutter speed, exposure
time etc. Suitable for more advanced consumer cameras which also
have a dial on top to change these settings. Discusses differences
, advantages and disadvantages of compact, compact system camera
and the Digital SLR from Canon and Nikon. Provides links to other sources.
An easy, understandable read but with plenty of detail.
