5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in every aspect.
This book will save you many hours of research (and perhaps a great deal of money!) into the many different types of modern digital photography equipment. It is comprehensive, very well written, informative, and frequently updated with new content by the author.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK As Far As It Goes.
This is not really a photography buying guide in the broadest sense, as it concentrates almost exclusively on Canon, Nikon and Sony. Very little mention is given to Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung or Pentax (hey, Mr Northrup, Pentax make some extraordinarily good DSLRs, and what about medium format?). These often provide better value and superior specifications to...

This book will save you many hours of research (and perhaps a great deal of money!) into the many different types of modern digital photography equipment. It is comprehensive, very well written, informative, and frequently updated with new content by the author. Not only is the book of great value by itself, it also gives one access to a support website with additional material, updates, examples, forums, and interactive advice on a wide range of topics. The author and his associates are extremely helpful and obliging in their support for new and experiences photographers alike.
I recommend this book very, very highly.

Excellent straight forward advice in this book.
I liked the approach of providing pros and cons of equipment you will most likely want to buy and that Tony actually makes recommendations of makes and models. A lot of advice books simply discuss what to look for without giving good examples.
This book is also kept up to date and once purchased the updates are free to download, so new equipment on the market will soon appear in the book.

This is not really a photography buying guide in the broadest sense, as it concentrates almost exclusively on Canon, Nikon and Sony. Very little mention is given to Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung or Pentax (hey, Mr Northrup, Pentax make some extraordinarily good DSLRs, and what about medium format?). These often provide better value and superior specifications to Canikony cameras. Admittedly, Canon and Nikon have vast systems, but not everyone wants to become a professional or avail themselves of the enormous range of exotic and very expensive optics that they produce. Sony is rather lacking on the lens front, so I'm surprised he even bothered to mention them. I also felt that too much of the book was devoted to studio flash systems, which is again a minority interest.

So, it's a good enough book if you're sold on getting a Canon, Nikon or Sony digital camera, but if you're interested in other systems, or just undecided about which camera to get, I would look elsewhere for a more balanced narrative.

3.0 out of 5 stars If your a complete newbie it may not be as in-depth as you need, 5 July 2014
It's ok, not as a comprehensive guide as I expected, being a complete amateur I wanted a detailed guide explaining what lens does what etc. it sort of does that but more on a moderate level. I'm sure once you've developed a deeper understanding ithe book would be more helpful
