I really like this book, it does exactly what it says on the cover. I have found it very helpful as everything is explained in an easy to understand language, with any technical details explained clearly. The chapters take you through start to finish. Covering set-up, lenses, focal ranges, understanding colour and all manner of other aspects, to help you get the best out of your digital camera and capture great photographs instead of snaps. Ideal for anyone who wants to move on from an instant digital camera, but is concerned that using an SLR/interchangeable lense camera would be too complicated.
