9781133597407: David Busch's Point-and-Shoot Compact Field Guide (David Busch's Digital Photography Guides)

David Busch's Point-and-Shoot Compact Field Guide will help you get the most from your basic digital camera, with clear, concise tips and techniques you can use with any compact model. This guide begins where most manuals end: You'll learn about all of your camera's functions and features--from file formats and resolution to aperture/priority exposure, autofocus, and more--and you'll understand how and when to use them. This book's seven information-packed chapters include a wealth of tables, charts, graphs, lists, and plenty of full-color illustrations to show the results you can expect by using the recommended settings. This portable, on-the-go reference cuts through the confusion and gives you the information you need when you need it, whether you're shooting around the house or in the field.

From the Author:

If you're the owner of a point-and-shoot camera and want a simple explanation of the basic features of these snapshooters so you can move beyond point-and-click to better pictures, this book was written specifically for you.  Not written for any specific camera model, my field guide offers clear descriptions of often-confusing options, including Scene modes, autofocus, close-up photography, and when to use (or not use flash.)   While it doesn't talk down to you, my book doesn't overwhelm you with unexplained jargon, either.  Packaged in a compact size with convenient lay-flat spiral binding, you'll want to take this book with you everywhere.  It's your shortcut to pixel proficiency.

My Point-and-Shoot Compact Field Guide is not aimed at those who already own and use a digital SLR or other advanced camera.  It was specifically written for beginners who want a shortcut to pixel proficiency.

About the Author:

With more than a million books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling digital camera guide author, and the originator of popular digital photography series like David Busch's Pro Secrets and David Busch's Quick Snap Guides. He has written more than a dozen hugely successful guidebooks for Canon and Canon digital SLR models, as well as many popular books devoted to dSLRs, including Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Second Edition, and Digital SLR Pro Secrets. As a roving photojournalist for more than twenty years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. He's operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college. His photos and articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He has also reviewed dozens of digital cameras for CNet and Computer Shopper, and his advice has been featured in National Public Radio's "All Tech Considered." When About.com named its top five books on Beginning Digital Photography, debuting at the #1 and #2 slots were Busch's Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. During the past year, he's had as many as five of his books listed in the Top 20 of Amazon.com's Digital Photography Bestseller list--simultaneously! Busch's 120-plus other books published since 1983 include bestsellers like David Busch's Quick Snap Guide to Digital SLR Lenses. Visit his website at http://www.dslrguides.com.
