      The introduction states that this book provides information and advice
      on buying a digital camera and taking digital photographs, as well as
      organizing, processing and using photos.

      Part one deals with the camera itself. Chapter one delineates the
      characteristics, advantages, and limitations of the major types of
      digital cameras (classed primarily in terms of size). Brief
      descriptions and assessments of the importance of various features are
      in chapter two.

      Part two examines the shot. Chapter three provides counsel on
      composition, and the mechanics of getting a picture. A number of
      significant setting are noted in chapter four. Technologies and
      techniques for preventing pictures being blurred by movement are
      assessed in chapter five. Chapter six instructs the reader on tips
      for setting up common and popular shots. Characteristics and
      accessories for SLR (single lens reflex) cameras are reported in
      chapter seven.

      Part three notes the management and enhancement of digital photographs
      on the computer. Basic file management, and the Picasa and iPhoto
      programs, is outlined in chapter eight. More on storing and searching
      is in chapter nine. Chapter ten looks at simple photo editing.

      Part four deals with the use of photographs. Chapter eleven deals
      with printing. Chapter twelve talks about email.

      This is a basic and fairly straightforward introduction to digital
      photography. Although it does not delve deeply into specialty areas,
      it provides a comprehensive background for the beginner.

      The optimist sees the Klein bottle as half full;
      the pessimist sees the Klein bottle as half empty;
      the topologist wants to know why you are wasting that stuff
      trying to put it *into* a Klein bottle. - rms
