Reader review from Amazon.co.uk
"I bought the book following the aquisition of another title "Windows 7 for seniors in easy steps". It's not that I am a confused old man or digitally incompetent but the net is always changing. I was glad to get rid of Vista and the "for seniors" series put everything in plain English and is a much better way of keeping up to date than the "For Dummies" counterparts. I've had digital cameras for 12 years now and will be buying a quality SLR in the next few months. I want to get the best use out of it and the "for seniors" series is the best advice I've found so far."

"This is a great book if like me you have just bought your first digital camera , or have not used it to its full potential by using only the instruction book that came with it .
The book is easy to follow, is in colour and the Beware, Hot Tip and Don't Forget sections at the side of the page are very good. I also have Computing for Seniors in easy steps , and as someone who has started using a computer late in life found this very helpful."
