Editorial Reviews

In every hamlet and city of America, there are thousands of unused digital cameras. It's true that grandma and grandpa were delighted the day they got them, but somehow all those clicks and options were just too difficult to master and these neat digital gizmos were retired to a bedroom drawer. All that changes with Mark Justice Hinton's multimedia addition to the ever-reliable Dummies series. Digital Photography for Seniors for Dummies isn't just a primer with a slightly awkward title; it's a multimedia powerhouse. The only guide written specifically for mid-lifers and seniors, this moderately priced book and DVD package walks older readers through all the steps from camera features to taking great pictures to editing photos to sharing your visual masterpieces with family and friends.
