    Comments about oreilly David Pogue's Digital Photography: The Missing Manual:

    This is one of the best introductions to digital photography I've found for beginners (I teach photography). Easy to read and navigate, speaks in easily understood language, very thorough, sticks to the important stuff, doesn't mislead. I highly recommend this book to people just getting started with compact cameras and DSLRs.

    Comments about oreilly David Pogue's Digital Photography: The Missing Manual:

    I started in serious digital photography in December, and have read many of the available books - most dealing with software, but several with photography itself. This is my favorite, not only because David gives a great deal of info in an easy manner, but also because he makes it fun!
