I got this book to go with my new A200 DSLR, It's a great guide to the camera with detailed descriptions of all the modes and buttons on the camera. It also has a pop out guide in the back cover that you can pop in your camera bag to take out with you showing the basic modes on the camera.

It also go's more into depth than the sony manual about things such as exposure bracketing and the diffrent scene modes available to you.

All in an excellent book which is vital reading for any beginner to get the best of there new camera.

I bought this blind because there are at least 2 other guides to the A200. I was prepared to send it back if it went into 'here's where you put the battery...' mode, but after a quick flip through it I decided to keep it.
Layout is simple and logical. There's a very quick rundown of the differences between film and digital cameras, naturally pointing to the advantages of digital. This doesn't mean that I'll be throwing my 'chemical' cameras in the bin; the matter of grain size v pixels is still relevant.
It's probably best to lay out the sections of the book. Features and Functions; Digital Recording and In-camera Processing; Camera and Shooting Options; Flash Photography; Lenses and Accessories; Working With Images and Troubleshooting Guide.
Throughout, Burian explains the various options available with the camera but doesn't ever tell you that you must do something his way. In fact, he encourages you to try things out for yourself. The old saying is true: 'If I hear it, I forget it. If I read it, I remember it. If I do it, I understand it.' Burian stresses that the old drawback with film, that you can try something out but it can be weeks before you see the results, doesn't apply with digital images. You just explore different settings and see the results almost immediately. So he points you on the way, then leaves you to discover what things are like.
I was particularly interested in the section on White Balance and altering colour temperature. Photographing bluebells or flax flowers in bright sunlight always results in 'mauvebells' and lilac flax. This is because of 'refringence', a form of refraction caused by the flowers reflecting a lot of infra-red light.

I'm a complete noobie and have found this book rather useful. However, I'm not sure on what audience this book is aiming at. It's a bit technical so not really that good for beginers and probably isn't that good for experts as they will probably know it all already.

Aside from the above negative comment, I have found this usefull and even though it's technical it points me in the direction to learn more.

great little book this. the author expands on the a200's manual and gives great advice for those new to sony's range (or dslrs in general).
the images in the book are black & white which is my only criticism...i wouldn't say this detracts from it's information or instruction though.
the book's small format makes it possible to slip into your camera bag if you've got a bit of space...if not there's a credit card sized quick hint thingy that'll fit anywhere.
recommended for anyone looking to get away from their sony's 'auto' mode and delve a bit deeper into it's many functions.
