The perfect book for this Dummie,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D For Dummies (Paperback)
There are Dummies books, and then there are Dummies books. "Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D for Dummies" is pretty close to perfect. Written specifically for the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D, it's not just a generic manual with a chapter or some added info on a specific camera, but absolutely specific to this particular camera from cover to cover.
And when was the last time you saw a Dummies book with every photo in color? Every single photo in the book is full color - even The 5th Wave by Rich Tennant comics preceding chapters are in brilliant color.
This book covers every imaginable feature of the camera, and all the possible settings, with photo examples of their effects. It discusses connecting the camera to a computer to use the software that comes with the camera, and all the ins and outs of taking photos in RAW format, JPEG format, or both.
The Rebel XSi is a reasonably priced digital SLR with everything but the kitchen sink included. This book completes the set. I may never get to the other two books I bought on the subject. We'll see.

Are you saying you have the wrong camera? I reviewed the book "Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D for Dummies" ISNB 978-0-470-38537-1 (triple-checked this). That is the book I reviewed - the one that is the subject of the original Amazon page - and about the camera I have. My review is almost three years old, and Canon has probably brought out two new models by now, and the model number has changed. That has nothing to do with my ancient review. I can't update my reviews to cover new editions.
