Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: May 2007

This unique manual is better than the manual that comes with yourcamera in several important ways:

  • It's organized according to efficient workflow, so you can get the most outof your Sony A100 quickly and with the least amount of bother.You can find what you're looking for interactively: by using the interactiveTable of Contents, choosing one of the questions in the Quick Answerssection, or by following any of the convenient links we've placed throughoutthe document.
  • It's not a book (unless you want it to be). It's a PDF that you can read onyour computer or on a PDA that fits into your camera bag. It is laid out onan 8.5 x 11-inch "page" so if you want to print, you won't have to wastepaper or spend time configuring your printer.
  • Because it's a PDF, you can find subjects you're looking for by searchingelectronically. Typing Cmd/Ctrl-F brings up the familiar search dialog. So allyou have to do to jump straight to all the references to a particular part orfeature is to enter its name. (No reliance on a mindreading indexer.)
  • The PDF is photographically illustrated so you can see exactly whichcombination of buttons, knobs, wheels, and menu choices will help youmake the magic you are hoping for.
  • In addition to teaching technically correct procedures, this documentoffers valuable hints for taking photographs in some of the toughestsituations.

Comments about oreilly Sony Alpha DSLR A100: A Better Manual:

Very useful addition to your camera's manual. Clear instructions on how to set up pretty much everything on the camera itself, as well as a more detailed discussion of more advanced topics such as aperture/shutter priorities, ISO etc.

Good for the beginner just starting out with their new DSLR and wanting to know what's what with their new shiny, but also has some more in-depth information for the more experienced photographer.

One feature I loved about this was the hyperlinks scattered liberally through the PDF, combined with the ease of search for a particular topic.

Well worth a look, especially as it's less than ten dollars! Bargain.
