Having found the manual with the camera a little basic, this book has come in very handy. It's easily understandable even for a fairly useless photographer like me, enough in fact for me to try and even improve on my limited skills. I'm sure those photographers more gifted than myself will also find it useful too. The only downside is that some of the print could be a little bigger or I need some reading glasses(probably the latter). I'm certainly looking to buy another one for my other camera if they've written one, as I've realised how little I probably know about it.
