    Very basic information

    I was wanting to learn more about digital photography and the camera, such as the aperture settings, what ISO settings are and why they matter, and such. This book goes into none of that. This book gives some basic tips that some users of point-and-click cameras might find useful, however if you're wanting to expand your knowledge past point-and-click, this "book" is not for you.

    "Book" is in quotes above since this seems to be more of a "quick reference but without the easily accessible information. There are 3 chapters that span 33 digital pages as reported by my e-book software.
