4.0 out of 5 stars very informative; slightly dated 18 May 2012
By BJTok - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was sitting on the fence about whether I should buy a dSLR and, if so, which one would be the right one for me. I invested in this book to help me find the answers and it did. I learned what made a dSLR different from the more compact point and shoots as well as other really cool stuff that I never had a notion of before (my favorite is HDR). The book gave me photography pointers and explained in depth about exposure values; shutter speeds vs. apertures vs. ISO. By no means am I an expert in these things but I DO understand what they are and how manipulating them affects the photo. I was very happy with the purchase and have even loaned it out to a relative who recently bought a dSLR but didn't understand many of its features.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that it was published a couple of years ago and, consequently, the comparison tables in the back do not cover some of the popular dSLR cameras on the market today. The author knew this would happen and has done his best to compensate for it. After I had made the decision to purchase a dSLR and was trying to choose which one, I contacted the author by e-mail and he gave me some very good pointers and advice.
I would recommend this book to any novice/dummie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for beginners 11 June 2016
By Ricky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book. I just recently go into photography and I didn't know anything. I just wanted a new hobby to learn about. This book has it all. I recommend it to anyone who is trying out photography for the first time. This book explains all you need to know for getting started in base english and the photos and examples also help a lot. Its full of lots of info that can help take great pictures right from the start and at least make you sound like you know what your doing to others into photography as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was exactly what I needed. 23 February 2015
By Eye4Beauty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm reading this currently, one chapter at a time as if I'm taking a class. The illustrations and explanations are very helpful. After taking a crash course from an expert photographer years ago, this brings back memories of things he showed me and I did with my camera (but my cluttered mind didn't grasp at the time). I like how this is 7 books in 1. My camera, a Cannon 60D, is one of the cameras used in many of the illustrations - SCORE! I could have bought the book just about my camera, but I really like the additional information this book provides. As the author suggests, it is easy to skip ahead to what you want to know and refer back to what you need to review. I highly recommend getting this book if you need the general information as well as some detailed information to have in your tool box for the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide for the new DSLR user 22 July 2011
By JeffShultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While the author has some definite - and largely admitted up-front - preferences in cameras, gear and photo & video processing software, by and large he keeps his subject matter generic enough that it can be applied to any Digital SLR camera.
I've already started playing around with my aperture, ISO and shutter settings in order to get different results than what "auto everything" would on my camera.
This would probably be a good guide for users of digital cameras that are of the higher end "point and shoot" variety, such as the Fuji FinePix 1500 and similar - while they don't have all the functions of a DSLR, they do have a lot of them, and framing and design techniques apply to all cameras. While the camera specific information is already becoming dated due to the introduction of new cameras, it's not nearly as bad as some computer guides - and the information provided forms the base of knowledge needed to guide the purchase of a first DSLR as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, covers all the basics and more. 21 June 2013
By B. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn how to get full use out of their DSLR camera. The author owns both Nikon and Cannon cameras, but all of his writing is neutral to brand, which what he says is applicable no matter what model camera you have. Since he owns a Nikon and Cannon, he will give you some specific examples about how to do a specific function such as programming ISO settings, but the settings are usually similar from camera to camera, just like all Cars have steering wheels, brakes, and signals regardless of company.

He covers everything from powering on the camera, storage, lenses, pros and cons of various lenses, lighting, filters, tripods, digital touch up software, shooting styles, and more. He also gives examples of how shots look under different settings, such as a subject shot under multiple F stop (aperture) settings.

The book is written for anyone from beginners to mildly experienced amateurs. Everything is explained in a simple and understandable way as well as sometimes coupled with the technical explanation as well.
