Essential Information for Sony A55 Owners,
This review is from: David Busch's Compact Field Guide for the Sony Alpha SLT-A55/A35/A33 (David Busch's Compact Field Guides) (Spiral-bound)
Based on the review of other purchasers I ordered a copy of David Busch's excellent book on the Sony A55/A33 along with my Sony A55. It was a great and useful choice. The book explains in plain english and in a well-organoized format anything a new user would want to know about digital photography using the Sony A55. I have owned 35mm single lens reflex cameras many years ago; more recently, I have owned several point and shoot digital cameras; and I consider myself an informed photographer. However, I have found David Busch's excellent book has been very useful to help me understand and use the many features of the Sony A55. As he points out, all the needed information is contained in the compact booklet that accompanies the A55, and that might be enough for a really skilled and knowledgeable photographer. However, the information in David Busch's book is organised and presented in a more useful and informative way for the casual or new DSLR user and I recommend purchasing his book along with your purchase of the Sony A55.
