I bought this for my daughter for Christmas having also given her a good quality mirrorless camera. The camera instruction manual refers to normal technical details such a speed, aperture, depth of field and the like and I realised that I had learnt all of this terminology over many years and knew what it all meant and how to make adjustments to the camera, this however was all alien to someone new to photography, stepping up from taking pictures on a smart phone. This book takes you through many of the basics and fundamentals in a simple and straight forward way, with good clear explanations of how to use settings and make adjustments to the controls of a camera. I read it myself and found information I wasn't aware of and or it gave a better understanding of photographic techniques. I might have to buy another copy for myself.

This is the best book for beginners to digital photography.
I read numerous books from various libraries, but I found this one the best as a beginner to bridge cameras and their many uses and functions. A bridge camera is the best option for my type of photography, but this book encompasses all types of camera. Most of the other library books were based on the probability that you already had extensive knowledge of digital photography and wanted to move on further, and were only concerned with DSLR Cameras and many were concerned with serious amateurs and professionals.
If you are a complete novice or want to progress to a higher grade camera, buy this book!!

Usual impeccable DK standard. Well laid out, full of pictures to illustrate points in the text. Bought for a bright 9 year old granddaughter for Xmas so haven't been able to evaluate her reaction. I have shown it to her parents and they are delighted. Recommended
