A great publication. As a new owner of the Sony NEX-6, I found this a well written and structured approach as it guides the reader through a journey learning the features of the NEX-6 and at the same time developing skills in various techniques. It covers the basics of photography for a beginner as well as revealing ways to use this excellent camera that the handbook fails to convey. My learning curve with the NEX-6 would have benefited from being able to acquire 'From Snapshots to Great Shots' at the same time as I purchased the camera! In essence the title says it all, Jerod guides you along away from the comfort zone of the point and shoot into the realms of greater creativity and control of your camera.

I am an enthusiastic beginner and purchased this book because I felt without some help and encouragement I was unlikely to get anything like the best out of the camera. The NEX-6 is far more than an up market 'point and shoot' and this book will help to move the keen user beyond the intelligent auto modes, if that's what they want.

As it is part of a series of similar books for different cameras, I feared it might be very generic and not specifically aimed at the NEX-6 owner. This book is very well written by someone who has obviously used the camera and who, without being patronising, guides the new user through the basics and more advanced features of what is, to me, quite a complex camera. The author is happy to point out that this book is better used in conjunction with Sony's comprehensive user guide, thus avoiding the need for lengthy descriptions of the most basic operations.

I have learned a tremendous amount about not only the functions available on the camera but also specific methods of using it to improve my photography. If your are an expert well versed in digital photography this book may be of limited value. If however you are like me and still have a lot to learn I would definitely recommend it.

I love this book, well laid out, not pretentious. I will use this book as a reference for years. Best read on the kindle app on my iPad but quite acceptable on my kindle paperwhite.

Overall a very good book that gives you all the key facts required to get started. I think is good for all levels of people wanting to know about the camera and taking good shots

The guide is very clear and concise, it helps you understand what is a complex and very capable camera with lots of features you might miss if you don't get a book like this.

fascinating book even for a semi-pro photographer like myself vecause there is always something new to learn about digital possibilities. I grew up on 35mm photography!

Well written beginners guide to your new Sony Nex 6. Recommended even if you're an experienced photographer as it goes into the many functions of the camera.

Written in a very useable way, a handbook, guide and photographic course in one. Very pleased to have found this and have already gained useful tips.
