Sony Alpha DSLR A100: A Better Manual
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: May 2007

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

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

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.
