    Default Good book for beginners for DSLR cameras

    Hey guys,

    I recently purchased a dslr camera and would like to know if anyone has any suggestions on a good book to purchase to learn how to shoot with these and general knowledge of photography and the different settings on the camera.

    Thanks,

    Ryan Z

    I'd just google it all. There's so man to learn that I don't think a book could possibly have everything! Also go to a Barnes and noble and bring your camera and sit around there one day looking thru books. I taught myself how to use my camera on manual and it took a very long time but it's pretty awesome once you get the hang of it

    Which camera did you get? The "For Dummies" book I got for my Canon T3 has been pretty helpful.

    I learn best through demonstration, though - so IMO the $40 Beginner DSLR class I took was my best investment towards learning to use my own camera. That class really helped give me a quick foundation (esp in the basic terminology) and then the manual and books help me build on that. (I still have TONS to learn!!!)
