A Great Reference,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D For Dummies (Paperback)
I'm not a camera "newbie," by any means. I had a Canon EOS (film-based) for years -- since high school. (I graduated in 1989 if that tells you anything...). I recently upgraded to a DSLR after having many point-and-shoot models, and merely wanted something a bit more in-depth than the user manual that came with the camera.
I had purchased another Rebel T3 "user guide," and found it to be less than stellar (and it contained an rather major error I just couldn't get past...). Rebel T3/1100D for Dummies is what I should have purchased first! It's not your typical "cheap" black-and-white Dummy book. This is a full-color glossy pages with tons of photographs and examples Dummy book.
A great reference, and much better than the manual that comes with the camera. The Canon EOS T3 is an introductory-level DSLR, and this book geared towards the "prosumer" (professional consumer) audience. Highly recommended.
