David Busch's Canon EOS Rebel XS/1000D Guide to Di&hellip by David D. Busch

Okay, can I just say how wonderful it is that there is a published guide just for the Canon Rebel XS / 1000D? If you're looking, you'll soon find out there are several.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but simple tips, May 6 2009
This book is a really easy read. I enjoyed some of the tips and samples, and the humour is great. If you're looking for really simple tips without any explanation [note that he does this intentionally], I think this is definitely a good choice. The writing style and organization was really clear and well-done, but unfortunately the information in the book sometimes verged on being of the "no-brainer" type. Overall, enjoyable...but a little simplified for my taste.
