Overview

Looking for a friendly, comprehensive primer on digital cameras that assumes you know next to nil about digital photography, yet manages not to treat you like a dummy? Look no further. In The Little Digital Camera Book, authors Cynthia Baron and Dan Peck help you go digital by providing a no-nonsense, jargon-free introduction to shooting, enhancing and sharing images from a digital camera.

The Little Digital Camera Book covers everything nonprofessional photographers need to know about purchasing the right digital camera, how to get the best image that the camera and image-editing software can provide, and how to share those images in print, email, and on the Web, as well as how to turn your photos into cards, calendars, and other projects. Baron and Peck begin with an easy, conversational explanation of what digital photography is and how it works. Then they discuss how to choose the right hardware, including cameras, accessories, and printers, and how to use some of the most common features found on digital cameras. Finally, they discuss how to use image-editing software to fix typical problems such as red eye, cropping, and color correction, and the different options out there for sharing digital images.

This book is very simple and unpretentious. But if your intention is a fast and lightweight introduction to the world of digital photography, you can read it without fear. Although very old, the technology has not evolved much, and his advice still valid.
