It takes someone with a college degree to use a camera properly!

Summary: So far, I'm learning how to use this Cannon t1i DSLR. Having had experience with point and shoot cameras I can tell that the big heavy lenses, etc. will give way to POINT AND SHOOT cameras. The nomenclature used is not simple as should be - I don't know why but I suspect that simplicity is not in fashion. Mr. David Pogue wrote a book that is very good, "Digital Photography"" THE MISSING MANUAL where he explains very clearly about cameras.
Excerpt: But, well, when you’re organized and know how to schedule recharging, it won’t be much of a problem. In overall, this kit is a classic. It’s something so many great pros got introduced into the world of photography with, it’s something so many people paved their way to becoming pros, that at times I catch myself thinking that it’s not me who decides whether it’s good or bad, but it’s the camera that tests what my skills are worthy of.
Excerpt: The Canon Rebel T1i Digital Camera is a great DSLR camera for a great price. The camera itself takes really good pictures with comparable image quality. I tend not to recommend this camera to a lot of my friends because they are not photography buffs. This camera is often hard for the beginner to use, and beyond the auto function, the limitless options, customizations, and potential of this camera is often unused and untapped with a beginner.
Excerpt: I love my Canon T1i. I went from a Canon point & shoot camera to this dlsr. It's not too heavy or bulky like some DLSR's can be and it fits my hand nicely. Once I understood all the different settings, it was fairly easy to use the right setting for the photo that I wanted to capture. It's 10 megapixels so it is professional quality and the photo's look really great.
