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.
