5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful supplement to the manual, September 18, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: David Busch's Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D Guide to Digital SLR Photography (Paperback)
As one reviewer put it, this is a glorified manual - but that is the strength of this book, and I recommend it highly to beginners, intermediate users and anyone who is "manual challenged." The book goes beyond the manual, however, in discussing lighting, for example, lenses, maintenance, and updating the firmware. None of this additional material is going to do anything for a professional or an advanced amateur, but will be very helpful to all us lesser photographers.

A new Canon XSi user, I wanted to change a camera setting on several occasions, could not find the instructions in the manual or locate the menu item or button, but promptly got the help I needed in this book. I don't go anyhwere without it.
