Last season's PCPhoto Digital SLR Handbook gave camera owners a great manual with all the technical guidance they needed; now, photographers who own an advanced compact digital camera get their turn. Open up this richly illustrated volume and find in-depth instruction, with all relevant concepts, operations, and terms masterfully explained so amateur photographers can take full advantage of these amazingly capable units. In addition to a general overview of digital versus traditional photography, there's a thorough discussion of how to utilize the LCD monitor, built-in zoom lens, and every feature and function: how to edit in-camera, work the exposure modes, get the most from presets, and handle the memory card, accessories, and flash. And a full chapter covers picture taking in the field. Every page is inspirational and invaluable.
