New Nikon D40 & D40x For Dummies Book - Kindle!

For Dummies and author/instructor Julie Adair King teamed up to create four books unlike any other on the market. While other DSLR books target experienced photographers and pros, these four For Dummies books target first-time and novice users who are interested in their new technology but might be intimidated by all the features.

"In a recent class I taught, none of the students with DSLRs understood even basic concepts such as aperture and shutter speed," Author Julie King reports. These books explain all the features of the latest entry level DSLR cameras, as well as how handle common tasks like getting images onto a PC and printing.
The Full-Color For Dummies books are being released from March 2008-September 2008 and cover the Nikon D40/D40x, the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi/400D, the Nikon D60, and the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D respectively.

The assumption is that the reader has little to no knowledge of general photography terms or techniques. The goal of each book is to familiarize the reader with the controls and features of their camera so they can apply them to any shooting situation. Chapters cover:

Shooting in auto-mode

Adjusting image quality and size

Reviewing images

Controlling exposure

Using focus features

Managing color

Printing and sharing
