About the Author

With more than a million books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling digital camera guide author, and the originator of popular digital photography series like David Busch's Pro Secrets and David Busch's Quick Snap Guides. He has written more than a dozen hugely successful guidebooks for Canon and Canon digital SLR models, as well as many popular books devoted to dSLRs, including Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Second Edition, and Digital SLR Pro Secrets. As a roving photojournalist for more than twenty years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. He's operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college. His photos and articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He has also reviewed dozens of digital cameras for CNet and Computer Shopper, and his advice has been featured in National Public Radio's "All Tech Considered." When About.com named its top five books on Beginning Digital Photography, debuting at the #1 and #2 slots were Busch's Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. During the past year, he's had as many as five of his books listed in the Top 20 of Amazon.com's Digital Photography Bestseller list-simultaneously! Busch's 120-plus other books published since 1983 include bestsellers like David Busch's Quick Snap Guide to Digital SLR Lenses. Visit his website at http://www.dslrguides.com. Alexander S. White is an attorney, writer, and amateur photographer. He is the co-author of David Busch's Canon PowerShot G10/G11 Guide to Digital Photography, and author of PHOTOGRAPHER'S GUIDE TO THE LEICA D-LUX 4: GETTING THE MOST FROM LEICA'S COMPACT DIGITAL CAMERA and DAUNTLESS MARINE: JOSEPH SAILER JR., DIVE-BOMBING ACE OF GUADALCANAL. He began his life-long interest in photography as a teenager, when he was fortunate enough to have his own darkroom in his parents' house in Philadelphia. He also discovered the magic of Super-8 cinematography, and coerced his friends into making numerous amateur productions. He later ventured into the production of sound films and went on to major in Communication at Stanford University, concentrating in Broadcasting and Film, before serving in the U.S. Army and later attending the University of Pennsylvania Law School. His other interests include genealogy; he maintains a family history website and continues to do research into his family's ancestry. He lives near Richmond, Virginia, with his wife, Clenise.

5.0 out of 5 stars DSLR A580 11 Dec. 2011
By Brian S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is probably the best camera/photographic book I've read.

The descriptions are good, witty and, most importantly, accurate.

I consider myself to be reasonably well informed about Sony cameras in general and this book is exceptional!
But: The book not only covers operation of the camera but also insights of DSLR photography in general.

By the way, I consider the A580 to be the best Sony has produced, with the possible exception of the full frame versions.

It will also probably be the last DSLR that Sony will produce, because of the new DSLT technology.

The camera has the same sensor as the new "translucent" models, but being a "reflex" has the advantage of the full incoming light going the sensor instead of the 70% reflected by the new "translucent" mirror...all covered by the book!

If you're getting, or have, an A580, this book is absolute MUST.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning Tool 9 Nov. 2011
By RedSkeeter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the second guide book I've purchased by David Busch. The first one was the Sony aDSLR-A350/A300/A200 so that I could learn to use my Sony A300 to it's fullest. That book was great. So when he came out with his Guide to Sony's aDSLR A580/A560 I had to have it. This book was not disappointing, it covers everything you need to know and more about your Sony DSLR. Great tips on all the features of the camera and he also gives some of his own tips on what to do and not to do. He leaves nothing out, he explains everything, exposure, sharpness, lenses and flashes. His books are very interesting and easy to understand. I highly recommend his books to anyone who wants to get the very best out of their camera.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit short on content 6 Sept. 2012
By BobT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was a bit disappointed in the content. I took it on a cruise to read before my first use of the camera and it really didn't give me any new insights. This is probably best used by those not yet familiar with DSLRs.
