Ammonite Press Lenses for Digital SLRs The Expanded Guide Features:
It's very easy, when investing in new camera gear, to put all your energy into choosing the right body, only for that most crucial of factors - the lens - to become an almost secondary consideration. Lenses for Digital SLRs redresses that balance. Covering everything from focal length to depth of field, prime versus zoom lenses and specialist optics, this book manages to unravel the technicalities of lenses while remaining comprehensible and reader-friendly. Throughout the book, the reader is guided through basic terminology, common focal lengths, what optical quality means in terms of the photographs they take and eventually comes to understand the anatomy of the camera lens and its effect on the image.
The Expanded Guides are much more than just camera and software manuals. Written by experts and with real-life examples, they are jargon-free and full-colour. They also include a quick reference wallet card, and Photographer's Grey coloured endpapers for metering.
With such a comprehensive - yet accessible - approach, both amateur and professional photographers alike can release the massive potential of their systems, with superior results.
