This is an excellent introduction to digital photography for beginner to intermediate level. It covers a wide field from hardware and composition basics to software photo editing. The style reminded me of the popular "Garden Expert" series of books by Dr David Hessayon - clear and concise, with straightforward advice. It's also great value for money at just over 5 GBP delivered.

Chosen because of the good reviews this book receives. My camera manual tells me how to change the various settings but not what effect these changes would have on the image, which is what i'd hoped this book would clarify . it really doesn't help at all, so much time wasted on what camera to buy and a list of items you may or may not require to take good photos like maybe a tripod to keep the camera still?! who'd have thought! most chapters are so short and really offer very little technical advice. As an example, on portraiture it suggests using the portrait setting on your camera, genius! if you're not sure which bit to point and which button to press this may be the book for you, but it was not for me.

This book is brilliant. I was determined to learn the extent of my own camera's capabilities and, even though the instruction manual which came with it was explained fairly well, I found this book to be really informative. The booklet which came with the camera told me how to operate it but this handbook explained why you should be doing something, how to do it and also gave tips. It's a really good buy and very easy to understand. I must admit I'd done a lot of researching into this type of book in bookshops, looking for one which was fairly technical but easily understandable. One or two of the items I had to read and re-read in order to be able to understand them fully but found it was an extremely helpful book.

I would certainly recommend this if you are fairly new to digital cameras or, even if more experienced, it explains in depth as to how you can get better photographs and is a good reference book.

Excellent little book whether you are new to digital photography or already know your stuff. It guides you through all the jargon and explains things in a clear and concise manner. You can just dip in and out as you gain confidence. If your camera came without a manual, as mine did (i know it comes on a CD that you can just pop in your computer)then you definitely shouldn't be without this book. When I go on holiday or just out and about for the day, a manual is much better, as you don't always have a PC/Laptop with you!! When I want to look something up or refresh my memory on something it will be much easier to revert to this little book. I can leave my camera on auto settings, until I get used to it, then experiment with diferrent settings as suggested by the author. I will never be another David Bailey, but with practice my experience will grow. I bought this after reading all the previous reviews and they weren't wrong. An excellent little book and would thoroughly recommend it.

As a newbie to Digital Photography, I needed a 'leg up' with the jargon and technical stuff. To this end the book explained many otherwise complex elements in a language even I could understand. A bit too much computer and photo manipulation for my liking as I want my camera to do the talking and not fudge things afterwards. That said though, an enjoyable and help full book that I would recommend to all beginners looking for simple explanations.

The book is heavy for its size - a bit too heavy, I fear, for the average camera bag. Despite this minor drawback, even as an experienced photographer I found it very useful. It is well laid-out and full of practical tips and excellent examples showing the reader what can be achieved by anyone with a serious attitude towards photography. "Digital photographer" is not a synonym for "dabbler". Take the content of this book onboard and do your camera justice! A very good buy, even at the undiscounted UK price.
