Format: Paperback
This book is extremely helpful. And not just for owners of this camera. The chapters that covered photography essentials and light led me to rethink how I set up my shots and how to go about getting the shots I want. Hess covers all of the types of shots you will take, from abstract photos to landscape to wedding shots. All of the controls and functions of the A200 are well explained and include photos of them. In addition, the camera care is great for those who do not know how to properly take care of cameras. A must have for owners of this camera.

When you get this book you can toss the instruction book that came with the camera away. Clear,concise,and thorough advice along with photos that show and explain every element of the A200. A must-buy if you own an A200. Two thumbs up and five stars for this book.

Format: Paperback
I've always been interested in photography, and just recently bought the Sony A200 DSLR camera. I'm a total beginner, so I don't have anything else to compare this book too, but after reading the reviews posted here by more experienced photographers I decided to give it a read.

I am very pleased with this guide, it is layed out in a clear, easy to use format, and definitely helps you learn this camera's functions better than the camera manual. There are even a few tips about composition that have already been helpful for me.

I gave this item a 4 only because I'm not the most qualified on the subject, but I think it is a great resource and if you have this camera it will help you to quickly learn all of the functions your camera is capable of, and how to use them. Like the author says, this is a field guide, and is perfect to bring along when you're shooting. Hope this helps,

I got this book for Christmas and took it on vacation with me just after. I learned more about the A200 in one week than I had in the prior 6 months since I bought the camera. This is a great compliment to the camera and will help you get the most out of the A200.

If you want to get the most out of your DSLR get this book. When I pick up this book I wasn't expecting much, but Hess really breaks down how to get the most out of your camera. I am a professional photographer and pick up the book to be come more familiar with the camera's functions, but when I was done I felt like I had really learned from the book. This book is a fountain of information and would be helpful for any camera.

I picked up this book in passing because I had an SLR but not Sony one and thought it might be helpful none the less. The book imparted a great deal of knowledge that I could use with any camera. I'm now considering getting a Sony DSLR as well after seeing what can be done with one of these little gems.

Great book for anyone with a DSLR!

Format: Paperback
Finally a book on photography that is informative, insightful and easy to read. With all the technology out there, I previously found the art of photography to be somewhat intimidating. Kudos to Mr. Hess for now making me somewhat of an expert! Mr. Hess's passion for photography shines through in this book, and I would highly recommend it to beginners and pros alike.

I have had this camera for over 5 years, and yet I learned so much about the potential of it through the book. Easy to use and written for both basic and advanced use, this book does it all!
