This was the ideal starter book for me. Although my Samsung camera is a bit different to the specific cameras mentioned in the book, I was able to find all the the settings once I knew what to look for. The amount of information was just right for a newbie, giving me a quick and easy to understand grasp of the first and most important things I need to understand. Once I have had a chance to put into practice the things I have learned here, I might consider a more advanced book, one that would probably intimidate me just now. Highly recommended for beginners.
