The book contains lots of illustration and pictures which are very good and help explain the concepts in the text. An excellent book for the photograhy student using film.
Thoughtfully laid out, this book commences by teaching us the basic principles of the camera and various lenses and the exploded-view illustrations are simply as good as they get. The various heading are far too numerous for me to list here except to say they are even pointers on underwater photography as well as on how to hold your camera still.
An excellent book by any standards and one that really should have already found it's way into the library of every competent photographer.
Some years later I've purchased the updated edition and I wasn't disappointed, now I'm more interested in film photography and this book has continued to inspire and teach me.
Buy this book if you are looking to understand the whole workflow of digital or film 35mm photography with an emphasis on taking the pictures.
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.
