This book is so inviting and inspiring. It actually makes you want to take pictures of everything in the world right then and there. Every chapter gets to the point. It doesn't feel like you're reading a history book. It's very engaging too. It feels as though there's a professor talking to you right there. Very good investment if you want to learn more about digital cameras and photography.
For anyone who just knows they're gong to love digital photography and wants to jump in feet first, to an advanced amateur coming over from shooting film, to anyone wanting to know the scope of what they need to know about camers, systems, software, and the works, this is the book. A great read, and a great reference.
The only downside is that the captions throughout the book can probably not be read by anyone over the age of twelve. They are so light, and without contrast, to make them unreadable. Tsk, tsk, tsk. With such a beautiful book, where were the writers on press check day, out playing golf?
