Although the title is a little overstated, this book does offer a fairly comprehensive introduction to digital photography. Johnson opens by discussing virtually all of the technical essentials of working with one's camera to make correct exposures and then proceeds to address questions about working with digital film and formats and transferring files. He further explains how to compose and edit photographs on one's computer, showing how to improve sharpness and contrast, clean up images, use special effects, and blend text with images. The book concludes with helpful chapters on printing one's photographs and sharing images through e-mail, web pages, and disks. Anyone who works with digital photographs will find this book quite thorough and useful. Recommended for all photography collections in public and academic libraries. Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll.

I suppose that this book equivalent to a complete course in photography, specially for people who don't know many things about using their camera and they don't know also about many features and options in their camera.
Also, I consider the first 9 chapters, the author tried to explain every single option in the two kinds of cameras:
1. Digital SLR
2. Digital point-and-shoot camera
I think that the reviewer missed to talk about this side of his book, when you read the behind cover page, you can't find this information about the book
In the first 2 chapters, he (the author) tried to give a general concept about digital cameras, about sensors opposite the chemical film, about exposure, he also talked historical.
In the 3rd chapter, he talked about understanding the exposure (this is the most important chapter in the book).
In chapter 4, he talked about how to compose the picture or the image, he gave a very good idea about the rules of composition.
Chapter 5 about flash and lighting, he explained why photographers use the flash when they are shooting a picture in under the daylight (under the sun).
Chapter 6 about close-up photography.
chapter 7 about sports, action and kids.
chapter 8, he talked about how to benefit from all our camera facilities, how we use our camera 100%.
In chapter 9, general ideas about the things we need to benefit from our camera like a tripod, how to protect our camera from different elements.
he tried in every chapter to give for the user of the camera (the reader of his book) he tried to give him all ideas the photographer people work it, he explained the problems facing the "beginner photographer" and how they can solve it.
I consider the first half of the book (first 9 chapters) a complete course in photography specially for the beginners.
I hope this will reveal something about the book, I appreciate the author's effort when he wrote his book wish him best wishes
The book does look a little dated by now, but it is still perfect for what I bought it for - A really good, clear guide to the technical side of cameras. It is aimed at the mid-range enthusiast - those who want to know how to do more than just point-and-shoot, but are not previously SLR experts.
I actually saw an article the author had written on the Internet and was amazed that an area I had previously found a bit difficult to understand had been explained by him more clearly than anyone else had managed to. So I bought the book on the strength of that article and I was not disappointed!
not gotten in it too far. It's a bit complicated for me. The f stops and ISO's etc.
I will have to go over that part again. Most people know this stuff, but that
is why I bought this book.
