Why, you may ask, am I telling you all this? Well Beyond Point-and-Shoot could very easily be a class text for the lessons I took. It's a slim volume but jam packed full of information presented in a clear, concise and accessible way. You get chapters on choosing a camera, using different lenses, understanding and controlling exposure, different camera modes, image formats and a final grab bag chapter covering the histogram, colour space and white balance.
Personally I found chapters three and four covering understanding the exposure controls and taking control of exposure to be the best, but in this case best means absolutely outstanding rather than merely excellent.
I don't think that a book can ever be as good as a tutor but in Beyond Point-and-Shoot your get about as close as it's possible to get. Yes, really it's that good. If your new to the world of dSLR, or other interchangeable lens camera system, then do yourself a favour and buy this book. Even if your not that new it's still a gem of well written information. Technical enough that you won't feel spoon fed but down to earth enough that you won't feel intimidated. Theoretical enough that you will understand why you are doing things and practical enough that you will know what to do.
Simply put, Beyond Point-and-Shoot could very well be the best camera book I've yet read.
