    I LOVE and I mean I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these books. I bought this thinking it would help me figure out what I needed to know about digital photography so I could be an intelligent purchaser of a digital camara. Honestly, I think that was a reasonable expectation.

    The book is 332 pages long and over 200 pages have nothing to do with digital photography. Page 128 starts a section on organizing your photos and the rest of the book is on computer editing. In the 128 pages, you get 10 pages on compostion. I guess that’s OK, but not really anything to do with “digital” photography.

    So, only about a third (or 100 pages) of the book is on photography. Honestly, if I hadn’t bought it on Amazon, I would have taken it back to the store. The title should be Editing Photos or something like that. I was really surprised because I trust this company.

    I am a newbie so I find most books helpful and can at least learn a few tricks from my reading. I am halfway thru the book so far and it’s just so general. The illustrations seem too cartoonish and annoying. Granted, I have already finished 3 volumes of Scott Kelby’s digial photography book, and 3 other books, but I still think it lacks details such as how to set your White Balance correctly with a card.
    Another example–if you look up “ISO”, there is only one page on it, where it talks about using the lowest possible ISO to reduce noise, etc, but it’s not mentioned again on the pages that talk about “camera shake” or “blurry pictures”, and even I know sometimes you have to raise ISO in low light so you can keep shutter speed fast enough to avoid shake/blur, even at the expense of more noise.
    I think the book is not organized well and not detailed enough to give information even for beginners.
