Credits About the Author Derrick Story is a photographer, writer, and teacher. He starting hacking on cameras long before his first shave, date, or kiss. Most likely, this passion for tinkering delayed the latter two by many years. During the formative period of his career, he was much better at taking cameras apart than putting them back together.

Now, more than 30 cameras later, he runs his Northern California photo business, Story Photography (, writes articles and books for O'Reilly & Associates, and teaches digital photography at technology conferences such as Mac- world Expo.
