Media Reviews
A book that delivers what it sets out to do - to introduce photographers to all aspects of electronic imaging technology. The CD-ROM contains a range of well-documented high quality images, provided copyright free - anyone thinking of a shopping list or wondering how good these cameras are, is going to be very happy to see such a range. The CD alone is excellent value.

Whether you're just getting into digital imaging or a relatively old hand, this book is highly recommended.
Professional Photographer.

....aimed squarely at cutting through the jargon and explaining how it all works in a way that a computer rookie can understand ... While mainly aimed at imaging novices, this book will fill in the knowledge gaps of many who are using imaging on a regular basis. I can strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the subject, whether beginner or accomplished user.

All in all, this is an excellent intermediate level text for those wanting to master the technical complexities of digital imaging in its many manifestations.
