The Ultimate Digital SLR Guide
Who are the frustrated
digital SLR owners?

"Taking photos has been my passion for decades.

I used to own a film SLR and loved the quality photos from it - better than anything a compact could produce.

And then I went digital (after saving up enough!).

The benefits of digital photography with the quality of a SLR - I was taking amazing pictures!

But other SLR owners I talked to were disappointed.

I soon found out the reason why - they'd bought a digital SLR because they wanted the quality, but never learned how to use it.

They were hopelessly bashing buttons trying to get great shots.

I realised they can't be alone and so I set about helping them.

The result? After a year's work I finished "The Digital SLR Guide"...
