      Comments about Digital SLR Cameras & Photography for Dummies:

      Far too technical for me. I just wanted some basic instructions on using the camera and taking better pics. It's a hard read, far too much details and far too much information. NOT for dummies. I've tried to read various sections of this book, but sadly it's now found it's way onto the bookshelf with little hope of ever being opened again.
