Useful and a good intro to the Camera
on 21 February 2010
I purchased the Canon EOS 1000D in Nov 2009 to migrate from taking simple pictures with a standard digital camera. I want to become a serious photographer, so I bought this book to improve my knowledge of the basic and creative functions of the camera. I found this book to be detailed enough and useful in what I expected. This book is purely aimed at Canon 1000D. The manufacturer's manual is very basic, so this book gives simple explanations and illustrations to those new to this Camera. Those with a solid background in digital photography will not find this book very useful. It simply will not teach anything new to exprienced photographers. To newcomers, my advice is that take your time to go through the book with your camera (if you have bought it already) beside you. Its certainly not for one weekend reading. There are many other books and web sites which can give you various tips into taking amazing pictures with this camera. As I said, this book is just an intro to newbies and I would recommend it.
