Format: Paperback
The new Dummies book and DVD on digital cameras and photography is excellent for those of us who are not professionals. The book has color photos which truly enhances a volume on color photography. It is well organized and provides the information in an easily understandable way without the "cutesy" comments I find so annoying in many of the Dummies books. I found I could move easily between the book, the DVD, and my camera with its manual so that I could actually practice the steps being taught. My learning style requires me to read material that is technical (like aperture settings) and then practice tasks I will need to use (like transferring photos to the computer and editing them). The combination of the book and DVD enabled me to use the learning method best for me at each juncture. I also found that one was re-enforcing the other so I was learning faster. My favorite part of the DVD was the section on editing the photos. I feel confident that I can now tackle that project, something I have avoided because the software intimidated me.

The book and DVD, while a bundled set, are really not connected in any way, except by topic. I expected and would have liked some cross referencing although I was able to do that fairly easily on my own. (Would have been 5 stars if that connection was there). The bundled set is definitely a valuable addition to my library and I anticipate carrying the book with me for reference for awhile until I become more comfortable with the tips and tricks to make my pictures more professional.

The DVD is pretty sparse, with only approximately 1 hour of material. It does not go much in depth, so this really is just an Overview type book/dvd.

A 'dummies' book really is just an overview, after all. And this is for ALL digital photography, not DSLRs specific. So, don't expect too much.

lost 1 star, since other 'dummies' books I have, work great as a quick reference... this one doesn't quite measure up because it doesn't cover as much in depth. For instance, more information about setting aperture would have been nice, beyond the mechanics of pushing this button and twisting that dial, such as what/when to use which aperture setting.

Great intorduction to digital photography, easy to read and understand. DVD shows you step to step towards better photographs. In just a few short minutes I've learned a great deal about my camera and how to use all the settings and features to the best advantage. Would highly recommend and it is a great price!

The book is fine if you have never ever held a camera in your hands. It's very basic, and more of the book is about editing photos than actually taking them. It's not you regular "for dummies" book that is big, this is more of a mini version.

Covers the basics of digital camera use. I bought this for a friend that I gave and old Cannon SLR. She had never done any SLR cameras before. I also gave her an old Minolta SLR with a 28-200 zoom lens, thinking using the film camera would help thinking about things like shutter speed, film speed, f-stop. She went straight to the digital using this. I'm sure she is using the icons on the camera instead of shooting manual on the digital. This book and DVD did help giving her a quick start!
