This review is from: Digital Photography. An Introduction (Flexibound)
The author makes the fundamental mistake of assuming that the reader owns a computer. There are frequent references to "your computer". For anyone who does not have one, or who is less than fully computer literate, the book loses much of its value. It is meant to be an introduction to its subject, but I was not far into the book before I became completely baffled. I give it one star for demonstrating that digital photography is much too complicated and expensive for my liking. I'll stick to film.

Anybody who buys a book called "Introduction to DIGITAL photography" but doesn't own a computer is coming from a very, very odd angle!

It is assumed one has a computer since it is next to impossible to pursue digital photography without one. Once the images are taken on the camera, they need to be transferred to a computer for long-term storage, viewing, organising and printing. There are some cameras that can directly connect to a printer (which you're unlikely to already have if you don't have a computer) and some high-street photographic shops like Jessops will print photos direct from a camera's memory card, but this is missing most of the point of digital photography.
