Format: Paperback
Really good book for me, a novice photographer, wanting to get to grips with my new (and first) DSLR. Although the early chapters do repeat what's in the manufacturer's instruction booklet, the book is much easier to read and for revisiting the parts you need to refer back to. The latter chapters of the book make good use of comparative picture's to illustrate the points being made and differences between the various settings etc.

The whole book is written in a straight forward language/style and I found no problems understanding the concepts being introduced.

And finally, the best bit is that the whole book refers exactly to my camera as I've been so frustrated reading various other books and magazines which don't cover the Sony range very well, if at all.

Very worth while buy.David Busch's Sony Alpha DSLR-A390/A290 Guide to Digital Photography

This is worth every penny. Highly recommended for the beginner or someone like me retuning to photography in a digital age:-) The real joy is that everything refers to my camera(a390)and I don't need to keep looking at the manual to work out what to press.

Being new to Digital SLR camera's I thought it best I by a guide to help me on my way. I am so glad I did as this book is great. It covers everything the small destruction manual that Sony supply you with, however it goes into much greater detail and with better illustrations. This book is ideal for beginners as it doesn't bamboozle you with technical terms, and the ones it does use it explains clearly. If i can get my head round it then any one can! ;)
