My Sony DSC-S85 was a Christmas gift last year. I've taken literally thousands of photos with it and deleted 80% of them. I've managed a few lucky shots that have impressed people who don't know any better, but my experience thus far has been frustrating at best and maddening most of the time. The owner's manual identifies the components and features, but is written for someone who knows what aperture and exposure and white balance mean and do. Bottom line, I don't. Or at least I didn't until I read this guide in a single sitting. Believe me, I've tried other books. They, too, were written for someone much less ignorant about photography than me. No, I'm not stupid, but this "hobby" was beginning to make me feel that way. Mr. Story wrote this book not for the experienced or even novice photographer but for the completely-clueless-wanna-be-photographer. While the language is not demeaning or patronizing, it clearly explains the common photography terms to which I'd never been exposed and tells me what they mean in terms of creating a viewable, viable photo. Finally, it all makes real sense.
Will I use this Pocket Guide as intended? You bet! It will be wherever my camera is at all times. I may understand it all now, but I won't remember it until I've used my new knowledge a few times. I highly recommend this book for anyone who possesses the most basic digital or the poor fool who, like me, owns way more camera than they think they'll ever know what to do with!!

I bought this after I bought my Canon Powershot S2 IS. Luckily I didn't regret my purchase but I highly recommend that anyone buying a digital camera to buy this book first and read the first two sections of the book to understand all the features available in most modern digital cameras so that they can make an intelligent decision and buy a camera with all the features they need. Everything's explained in an easy to understand manner especially for the photography newbie. Lots of useful practical examples and tips. Easy and short to read, and a great reference. Small size makes it easy to carry in your camera bag or pocket.

First, this is very succinct, well written and takes no time at all to go through. It's also small and will fit in the back pocket of blue jeans or in a camera bag.

I concur w/ others, this for newbies... the casual shooters who want to "up their game" and perhaps bothered their photos don't look good. This book can help you better understand your camera's features such as "slow synchro shooting mode" and basics of photography, such as composition.

Because it is such a quick and easy read, it's a great place to start. I re-read parts that I've forgotten from time to time. This stays in my camera bag.

Even though it is a Pocket Guide, I was expecting more from this book. I'm not saying it is a bad book but it is very very basic; practically focussed to those who have never EVER used a digital camera. The only chapter (to my taste anyway) that I find with relevant/interesting/good information is the 3rd chapter where the writer describes some tips on "how to questions". In summary, if you have some experience on digital photography this book won't be that usefull and if you want to learn about aperture, shutter speed and so on..there are better books to learn those subjects.

This is a great little guide for first time digital camera owners and even some good tips for amateurs. I recently purchased a Nikon Coolpix camera and didn't really know how all the functions worked. I read the first half of the book with my camera by my side and found out my camera does much more that I thought! This guide takes you through all the basic modes and buttons on your camera, then it has a alphabetical reference of functions. Lastly it gives you tips on how to take great pictures. I now own a Nikon D200 and just used the book again. It's small size makes it easy to carry in your camera bag for reference.

I feel this is a perfect little guide for beginning digital photographers. I've been taking photos with my digital for about 3 years now and this little pocket guide still comes in handy and is very useful. It's size is perfect for carrying it with you in your camera case and it gets right to those frequent questions that come up.

A good little book to own!
