Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Major companies like Kodak and Nikon are abandoning the manufacture of film cameras and are producing affordable digitals, so it's an ideal time for substantial manuals on their use to appear. Aaland was among the first to write such books when his Digital Photographywas published in 1992. In this second edition of Shooting Digital, he has removed material that is no longer relevant (e.g., shutter-release lag) and added chapters on shooting and processing RAW data and on the digital renaissance in shooting in black and white. Highly recommended.
