Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Last seasons updated PCPhoto Digital SLR Handbook gave camera owners a great manual with all the technical guidance they needed; now, photographers who own compact digital cameras get their turn. Open up this richly illustrated volume and find in-depth instruction, with all relevant concepts, operations, and terms masterfully explained so amateur photographers can take full advantage of all of the newest features of these amazingly capable units. In addition to a general overview of digital versus traditional photography, theres a thorough discussion of how to utilize image stabilization, smile and blink recognition technology, the built-in flash and zoom lens, and every feature and function: how to edit in-camera, get the most from preset shooting modes, and handle the memory card, accessories, and flash. Plus, a full chapter covers picture taking in the field.

Book News Annotation:

Sheppard, editor of Outdoor Photographer and PCPhoto magazines, offers a guide to compact digital zoom cameras. Most of the cameras discussed in the book offer full control over exposure and focus, just like digital SLRs, and include a wide range of focal length possibilities, even though they don't have interchangeable lenses. The book reviews the benefits of digital cameras, then gives details, in plain language, on camera features and functions, getting the most from the camera, white balance, memory cards and workflow, accessories and flash, and picture taking in the field. Color photos on every page demonstrate the possibilities. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
