Digital Photography: The Missing Manual

David Pogue, O’Reilly

When buying a new digital camera remember to also budget for a camera case, rechargeable batteries, at least 2GB worth of memory and David Pogue’s excellent Digital Photography: The Missing Manual. As it rightly says on the cover: "this is the book that should have been in the box".

Funny, never boring and crammed with practical know-how, it will take your pics from ho-hum to Wow! Pogue explains away jargon and we especially liked all the useful tips liberally spread throughout. R349
