5.0 out of 5 stars The Photographers Bible, 28 July 2008
This review is from: The New 35Mm Photographer's Handbook (Paperback)
I've been using this book now for nearly 30 years since it first came out and yes, there may be "better" books on the market, but none that are small, compact, neat, clearly & logically laid out, easy to read as this one is. Another bonus is that it's just the right handy sort of size that you can carry around with you on field trips. It's bound in a nice stiff water proof cover too.

I agree that it's a beginner's book, but there aren't many that can give you such a head start in photography as this one can.

It's such a pity that those who negate its qualities, do so anonymously and don't provide ANY examples of what they consider to be so-called "Better" books! Be wary of giving any credence to reviews written by "A Customer" that don't have the courage of their own convictions.

This copy can be used by both Manual & Digital SLR Camera users equally alike. The beauty of this book is that it's jam packed full of beautiful photographs of all sorts that truly are an inspiration to motivate you to go and try the same sort of shots yourself or at the very least give you plenty of creative ideas to create similar material.

There are many versions of this book available, so you may wish to search for "The 35mm Photographer's handbook Calder" to see all the different versions so that you can find the one that suits you & your budget.
