The Barnes & Noble Review
What do you need to know about digital photography right now, to make your next shot perfect? What have you always wondered? Digital Photography: The Missing Manual is uncannily good at anticipating and answering both kinds of questions.

What quick steps will give you pro-quality composition? Which camera features can help you avoid dreaded “shutter lag”? What’s the easiest way to make slide shows or shrink photos for convenient emailing? How can you save time when you’re scanning old prints? How do you get the most out of flickr? Should your next digital camera be a DSLR? How do you fix redeye, contrast, color, exposure problems? What free software manipulates RAW files, and why do you care? Which $25 mini-tripod can be strapped to fence posts and tree limbs? Browse this book: As with all the Missing Manuals we’ve seen, there’s something valuable on almost every page. Bill Camarda, from the August 2006 Read Only
