Reviews - What do customers think about The First Week with My New Digital Camera: A Very Basic Guide to Understanding, Editing, and Saving Digital Photographs (Capital First Week)?
Intended for the first time owner of a digital camera. Mar 20, 2004
This is the perfect book for the first time owner of a digital camera. The author explains basic terminology and how pixels and resolution effect the photographs, and guides the reader through how to transfer, edit, process and archive the photos.
It is not a guide on how to take photos, nor is it highly technical. It is designed for the first time user answering many of the questions and easing the confusion felt when entering the digital world. I am buying it for my sister-in-law and my 75 year old father, who both recently purchased cameras and are struggling with the understanding what resolution to use, how to print the photos, etc.
I wish I had this book years ago when I purchased my first digital camera.
A Book for Author's Friends Only Jan 16, 2004
I'm afraid I for one cannot figure out the purpose of this book. It reads like something the writer should have simply photocopied and passed out among her friends. It is neither a very knowledgeable digital photography book, nor an amusing account of the author's introduction to digital cameras. (Shenton's illustrations are quite funny, however!)Lessing's description of memory fails to even mention SD or MM cards. Her description of photo software just covers her opinion of the few she has used. She's a Sony user who states there are no really good HP or Kodak digital cameras; although she admits her opinion there might become outdated, which it certainly has. Actually, the whole book is outdated, even though it was just published in 2003, and just hit my local library as a "new" book.Take my advice, which is no worse than the author's advice--take the money you would spend buying this book, and instead get a year's subscription to PC Photo magazine.PC Photo will give you the latest information on digital cameras, memory, scanners, printers and software...and will give you much, much more knowledgeable, as well as easy to understand, advice about picture taking, storage, editing and burning.
