Wiley Press Release

Hoboken, NJ—The fourth installment of camera-specific, four-color, “Dummies” books by acclaimed author Julie Adair King will be in stores September 29th, 2008. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D For Dummies (John Wiley & Sons; September 2008; $29.99; 320 pages; ISBN: 978-0-470-38537-1) is unlike any other book on the market. While other DSLR books target experienced photographers and pros, this one targets 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. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D For Dummies, and King’s previously released “Dummies” books for the Nikon D40/D40x, Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi/400D, and Nikon D60 respectively, explains all the features of the latest entry level DSLR camera, as well as how handle common tasks like getting images onto a PC and printing. 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
