Great book for a new photographer or a seasoned photography. Lots of the ins and outs of the XS. Great camera tips for getting that perfect picture. Not quiet as "layman" and "here's what you do" as the Scott Kelby books, but a great book for the XS.

Just what I needed - guide amplifies and simplifies the Canon instruction book (that is in small print). And it is written JUST for my Canon.

This guide is remarkably clear and informative without being arcane. I find it tremendously useful in orienting me to my first serious digital camera. I am experienced with film photography but need familiarization with the vast vocabulary of digital photography. I was very pleased that this guide uses abbreviations minimally. It is not exhaustive on the subject and doesn't pretend to be. Exploiting my "new" camera is a challenge. This volume is helping me to overcome it. I expect to read other guides to clarify obscure points.

The first thing I do when I get a new camera is order the Digital Field Guide for it. Got a great deal on a 2nd hand Rebel XS for a relative and waited to give it to her until the DFG came in. Great books!
