Trevor
The eldest daughter is going to turn 21 soon and over the last while she has become increasingly interested in photography. She bought a Holga camera while away – sort of a plastic toy thing that leaks light but uses serious photographic film – all very artistic if absurdly expensive at the same time, while also being a little strange too, given the cost to quality ratio issues.

Anyway, having to tape up a camera so as to cut out some of the light getting in through the case seems to have made he

If you are a "serious amateur" photographer that is "upgrading" from a point-and-shoot to a DSLR then this book would be a great starter. An even better approach would be to keep it on your shelf next to Shooting Digital and have them act as companion pieces for each other.

Having read Shooting Digital last year, I would say that I find these books about equally useful and about equally executed but with different goals in mind. Whereas Shooting Digital is more technique driven, Digital SLR Came

Really had a head start. Author covered several things about Camera as well as photography. I recommend a quick read and photograph to make learning faster and better.

This book is a must read if you are just learning about digital SLR cameras and photography...i have some knowledge about photography and started my passion and love affair when i was 12 years young...very easy to understand and explains each step simply and just enough information to be able to retain in the grey matter at once...a must read...i borrowed this book from the libraby to see it i want to buy it...it is now on my Santa list along side my new digital SLR camera...yes...i have been a ...more

A comprehensive introduction for absolute beginners, covering shooting techniques, gears, accessories and image editing. Naturally not suited for advanced level photographers, it should provide a few pointers to even intermediate levels, offering some interesting techniques including infrared, pinhole, time-lapse, very low/high speed and baroque photography. Dedicating a chapter to top online resources, it thoughtfully caters for amateurs by using the final chapter to introduce various advanced ...more

As an amateur photographer trying to improve my skills, this was a good overview of techniques I can utilize to improve my photos. It was a good refresher on topics I've already learned plus a few new ones. I've been working towards using the manual settings on my DSLR and may use this book as a reference guide.
Brooke
I think I was hoping for something that was a little more in depth on photography rather than an overview of various DSLRs, storage media, and basic concepts (such as composition). However, this did get me interested in learning more and delving deeper.
Erin
Not what I was hoping for. This book spent a lot of time telling me why I was glad I have the camera that I do but not a whole lot of time talking about how to use it. It did, however, have a useful tutorial on photoshop.
Andy
Great DSLR basics book for beginners - explains with clarity the settings and the mechanics behind them so someone new to DSLRs can understand and take better photos.
Yousef
Great Book about Photography in General, and "Easy to understand" Reference to deal with Digital SLR

Recommends it for: anyone looking to purchase their first dSLR
Chapters 3 and 7 were the most useful. Good read, but I skipped around.
Rasha
It's very boring like reading a text book I skipped most parts!

I feel like I'm reading a textbook, but I'm learning
