    Simple, easy to understand for a first time digital camera user!

    I bought this after getting my first digital camera at age 53-and jumped in with a DSLR-the T3. The book added so much more to the basic manual and cd instructions and is handy to have around for review. The camera, although "entry level" can be intimidating at first,and after spending that amount of money for a camera, you want to be able to utilize all of the neat features and functions that come with it. This book covers all the options, settings, and possibilites that this great camera has to offer. The book shows you all the options you have and how to get there. And does it in straightforward, easy to understand language for first time users.
