Overview

DAVID BUSCH’S POINT-AND-SHOOT COMPACT FIELD GUIDE 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.

He has written more than a dozen hugely successful guidebooks for Canon and Canon digital SLR models, as well as many popular books devoted to dSLRs, including Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Second Edition, and Digital SLR Pro Secrets. As a roving photojournalist for more than twenty years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. He's operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college. His photos and articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He has also reviewed dozens of digital cameras for CNet and Computer Shopper, and his advice has been featured in National Public Radio's "All Tech Considered." When About.com named its top five books on Beginning Digital Photography, debuting at the #1 and #2 slots were Busch's Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. During the past year, he's had as many as five of his books listed in the Top 20 of Amazon.com's Digital Photography Bestseller list—simultaneously!
