    A must read for beginners

    If you are a DLSR novice, this book is for you. It gives you all of the necessary details about the Canon EOS Rebel T2i/550D to start taking great photos. The books goes into great detail at the beginning explaining everything about the camera: Menu functions, settings and what they all mean. It can be a very 'dry' subject, but the authors manage to get you through it. The later chapters of the book, however, is where the book really shines. Situations that most photographic beginners will encounter are covered and explained to ensure great photographs. Got to give this one a try if you are new to DLSR's and the T2i in particular.

    Pretty Good

    Easy to read. Sometimes wanting more information, though. The NOOK Book is a little hard to read where the formatting is drastically different than the physical book. Still a good read if you have this camera!!
