Equally engaging and informative, whether for the beginner, or more seasoned digital photographer looking to improve technique.

There were a few times I found myself having to go over chapters again to clarify things, not because the book is not well written, but because there are some aspects of digital photography that can be quite confusing. For exampl Equally engaging and informative, whether for the beginner, or more seasoned digital photographer looking to improve technique.

For example, when it comes to lenses and their focal, length, and angle of view of different lenses it can be quite time consuming if you would like to learn more than the basics.

For me, these were some pages in the book I just could not quickly skim through without some confusion. The introduction of this book has a Quick Start Guide which is helpful for those who have never used a digital camera before.

From there you move on to Chapter 1: Digital Capture, which lists the different types of cameras available on the market. This part of the chapter then goes into more details on different types of cameras while covering some specifics of each type of camera.

Then the main focus turns to the digital camera itself. Specifics then covered on the digital camera are the image sensor, pixels and image processor. You are also given basic information on setting up a digital camera and you are taught about file formats, image sizes, white balance and miscellaneous camera settings your camera may or may not have.

It continues into memory cards, types and speed, and transfer rates. This section on memory cards I found interesting and helpful, especially the information about how memory cards come in different classes and how they are rated according to their speed, also called data transfer rate. All of which affects how fast a memory card can capture a picture or how fast the card can transfer photos to a computer. This chapter ends with miscellaneous camera capture equipment and trouble shooting.

Chapter 2: Camera Lenses, begins with information on the camera lens itself and its focus and auto-focus capabilities, including its reaction to low-light, reflective surfaces, snow, sand and sky, close-ups and the also the manual focus mode. This was another chapter that helped me by teaching me why my camera behaves the way it does when in auto-focus mode during certain times. This instilled in me more confidence now to switch to manual focus and use it more often when my needs are not met with auto-focus.

In the next topic, Exposure, I learned about aperture, exposure, and f-stop. Here I learned the most commonly available f-stops which include whole f-stops, and full f-stops. It also goes into more complicated lens aperture changes, partial f-stop, half f-stop and third f-stop. One important aspect I learned here was that a lens is described mm on a lens according to its widest f-stop. This is the widest it can open, which explains why fast lenses are the most expensive lenses on the market due to their large aperture.

Another thing to keep in mind is also the higher the number of your lens the smaller the lens opens. The chapter continues with disadvantages and advantages of different size lenses and with minimal instructions on setting f-stops due to the wide variations in cameras. The information after this point gets a little more complicated with the focal lengths and millimeter sizes of zoom lenses and prime lenses describing normal, wide angle and telephoto lenses and how an optical measurement of a focal length is determined.

These were only the first couple of chapters in this book, which should give you an idea that this book has a lot of information in it. The title can be misleading to one who thinks they know everything there is to know about photography, may have missed learning some basics along the way, or might need a refresher in some aspects of digital photography. Because of this I would recommend Digital Photography: A Basic Manual to anyone, whether you just received your first digital camera or you have had one for years and would like to improve your digital photo taking abilities.

Overall, I enjoyed reviewing Digital Photography and learned many important aspects of that I benefited from and will help me be a better photographer. Mar 16, Luke Hannafin rated it it was amazing. This really is the missing manual for my DSLR camera. Sep 04, Lis rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. It covers the basics. Nov 09, Cheryl rated it really liked it Shelves: read. Synopsis: This thorough, concise, and easy-to-use guide to capturing digital photographs provides an entire step-by-step course for budding digital photographers.

My Thoughts and Opinion: I feel that this review needs to start with a few caveats. I know very little about cameras. I sometimes even forget to take it with us to special events, and then even if I do take it, we hardly use it.

The pictures do not turn out that great. They are out of focus, off center, fuzzy, etc etc. That's why I so enjoyed this book. It was a how to for those, like me, that know very little and also for those who are more experienced using different lenses and lighting. How to deal with the dreaded red eye to back lighting. How to copy your pictures to your computer to light meters and shutter speed.

In my opinion, the best way I can describe this book is to compare it to a cook book. There are many "recipes" or in this book, "instructional guides". You can read it either at the stage of a photographer you are at, a how to, a trouble shooting issue, or like me, who knows very little, where to start. The photographs in the book are beautiful. Now with this manual, I plan on taking my camera wherever I go, and practice taking pictures and hopefully share some with you.

My Rating: Nov 06, Leslie rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , photography. In the not too distant past, high quality camera equipment was expensive to buy and complex to operate.

Today, digital cameras make it easy and affordable for everyone to take great pictures. With a little knowledge even the beginner can make shots that look like those of the pros. This book is a beginning guide to learning and understanding the basics of digital photography. It is not an instruction manual for any one brand or type of camera. It is a guide which takes you through the process of In the not too distant past, high quality camera equipment was expensive to buy and complex to operate.

It is a guide which takes you through the process of taking the photo, editing the image, printing the picture and storing the digital copy. It is geared more toward a DSLR Digital single-lens reflex camera, but the author also includes point and shoot cameras in his discussion.

Some of the point and shoot cameras are limited in the features they offer but many of the new ones are very sophisticated and techniques discussed in the book can be applied to them too. There is a lot to learn but this book makes it easy with a multitude of examples and detailed explanations.

There are many sidebars with helpful tips, definitions of terms and illustrations. Example photos are included to demonstrate many of the techniques being described. The book covers the same topics and points that would be taught in an introductory photography class.
