Good Introduction to What you get with Digital SLRs 25 July 2005
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Digital SLR's offer two real advantages over the much more common point and shoot cameras.

First, these cameras are the top of the line from the various companies. Here is where they put in all the new technology first. So any improvements in components such as the CCD's will be here first. While point and shoot cameras now usually have 3 to 4 megapixels of resolution, the digital SLRs start at about 6. The new Nikon D2X has 12. Do you need this much, maybe, maybe not, but Digital SLR's get this kind of thing first.

Second, Digital SLR's have more controls, interchangable lenses, every accessory known to man and so on. More control give you more the ability to do things that you simply couldn't do with the earlier cameras. It also offers you more opportunity to screw up, but with the LCD viewer you can catch this faster.

This book is a general introduction to the features you typically find on Digital SLR's and what you get with those features. It is not so much a description of what cameras are available with what features, there are magazines to do that -- and still they go out of date quickly. Here you will find more generalized information to help you decide what features you really need.

This is the most complete generalized introduction to what these cameras do that I've ever seen. Buy it before you spend a lot of money on a camera, relatively speaking it's cheap.

User Friendly SLR Handbook 20 Mar 2007
By Agent English - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this particular book to be more user friendly than other SLR books. Color photos help as opposed to black and white. The information is easily understood and the book is not overwhelming. For a beginner using a SLR camera, I would recommend this book.
Great moving from "regular" digital to SLR 24 Aug 2010
By Linda Rae Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having used digital cameras for a number of years, I was ready to move to digital SLR. I bought a Nikon D80, which has many automatic features. I used those exclusively until I read this book. Understanding white space, lenses, and what the various settings can do beyond automatic has been very valuable. My photographs are now getting attention and even being purchased. Understand, I had never used an SLR camera before, but this book made me much smarter. The author does a very good job of pointing out those things that must be in the original photo and those that can be edited with photo software.
well worth the price 6 Jan 2013

Older edition but still relevant especially for a DSLR beginner.
The basic information is good. A separate chapter on white balance.
Would be better if there are more examples.
