3.0 out of 5 stars Don't overlook the word "mini" in the title June 25, 2011
By MtnGirl

This is definitely what it's described as, a quick overview of camera basics and explanations. I think it took me all of 15 minutes to read. If you've never operated a camera before (be it a point and shoot, or DSLR) this is a quick overview of the basic functions of camera operation. If you're a novice or higher, this really won't provide anything of value (in my humble opinion). It does give a decent explanation on the "rule of thirds" for image composition. A quick and easy read for sure, but I didn't learn anything that I didn't already know. Oh well, in this case I got exactly what I paid for. Overall it's not horrible at all, I personally just need something a little more robust for my current photography skill.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic Intro to digital photography December 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
I agree with other reviewers that this is definitely a "mini." But if you're a film photographer and already know the difference between an f stop and a shutter setting and you just bought your first digital camera, you will find it useful. It includes straight forward explanations of file format, resolution, white balance, downloading images and organizing your image library.

If you're new to photography and just bought your first camera, you'll need a book with more meat. The chapter called Take Your Best Shot contains useful information but it isn't nearly enough. Missing is information about different kinds of digital cameras, what shutter speeds and f stop settings actually do and other photography basics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mini edition wanting! January 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
Misleading in content and details. Just a trick to get you to by the bigger book. But at 99 cents, can't complain. I should have been a wiser shopper.

I had just brought a DSLR camera and after having paid more for a camera than I ever had in life I wanted to know how to use it. I turned the camera on and out popped a dizzying array of information. Everything was there FStop, ISO and shutter speed stuff. The camera came with a basic flash that had its own attendant functions. What are the pro's and con's of ISO, versus FStop versus Shutter Speed. Digital Photography For Dummies®, Mini Edition is more a very general introduction to what questions you should be asking about digital photography. The introduction to ISO, FStop and Shutter Speed are very basic in that you just barely know what they are and what they do. Digital Photography For Dummies®, Mini Edition gives you just enough information to point your DSLR and shoot a halfway good picture. Digital Photography For Dummies®, Mini Edition tells you just enough about digital photography to make you comfortable enough to proceed. Unfortunately in so few pages there is little of true value in Digital Photography For Dummies®, Mini Edition. Honestly if I had it to do again I'd bypass Digital Photography For Dummies®, Mini Edition in favor of buying a book that takes my introduction to photography to greater levels of detailed handholding in a learning process.

3.0 out of 5 stars More informative than the manual May 29, 2014
Verified Purchase
I found this book more helpful than the manual and it will get you started. However, I found other resources that were more helpful without wading through a plethora of pages that give the same information. It is fail safe and will answer basic questions but I found some of the other books by professional photographers a bit more engaging. It is what it claims to be just not much more.
