David Busch's Point-and-Shoot Compact Field Guide from Cengage Learning and written by David D. Busch will help you get the most from your non-dSLR camera, with clear, concise tips and techniques you can use with any compact camera. This guide begins where most manuals end: You'll learn about all of your camera's functions and features-from file formats and resolution to aperture/priority exposure, autofocus, and more-and you'll understand how and when to use them. This book's seven information-packed chapters include a wealth of tables, charts, graphs, lists, and plenty of full-color illustrations to show the results you can expect by using the recommended settings. This portable, on-the-go reference cuts through the confusion and gives you the information you need when you need it, whether you're shooting around the house or in the field.
