Ideal book for a real SLR Dummy!
on 23 August 2010
I received my new Canon 1000D as a gift, of my choice, when I recently retired from work so I decided that I would really need to learn how to use it properly in order to get the best results out of it. Although I have had a number of film and digital point-and-shoot cameras I have never owned any kind of SLR camera, film or digital, before and it is rather daunting to set out to use something you have never used previously and what was such a difference from any camera I have used before. The 1000D for Dummies is certainly helping me to get to grips with the camera and its various functions and I am actually getting some very reasonable shots after following event the most basic instructions in the book. It is very easy to follow and is better than the booklet that came with the camera. I am looking forward to getting even better results once I have managed to get through the all of the book and should, by that time, know the camera and its operation inside out. All in all a great reference book and an easy to follow beginners guide to an excellent digital SLR camera.
