5.0 out of 5 stars This book helps you get the most out of your T1i, July 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T1i / 500D For Dummies (Paperback)
I am a very casual photographer and to be honest I have very little experience with photography in general. I have had almost no experience with aperture or ISO. I bought the Canon EOS Rebel T1i/500D for Dummies simply because I wanted to learn more tricks and tips about the camera as well as how to change the camera settings. I knew that I wouldn't get the information I wanted, or possibly needed, out of just the user manual that came with the camera. This "For Dummies" book is my first foray into these types of self-help books and I have been very pleasantly surprised. This book is extremely well written and is most definitely not written in a condescending way treating the reader as if that person is a child. I found this book very easy to follow and it handled very complex information in a way that can be understood and practised by the user. The numerous pictures showing step-by-step instructions make this book more easily understandable. This book gives the reader a much better understanding of features that are hard to grasp as well as features that can be easily missed. If you are an experienced user you might not get too much out of this book other than a reference guide. However, if you are new to (Digital SLR's) like I am, then this book is an incredible tool to help you progress. Its important to note that you will not learn everything overnight because there is so much information, but in time you'll be thrilled at what you have accomplished with the help of this book. I have had this book for three months and I find myself referring to it as a reference guide quite often and I am slowly trying new things, things that I would not have known about on my own. There are quite a few parts of this book that I have not attempted to learn because I am not proficient enough yet, but for my abilities this book has continued to be very useful.
