    DefaultBook suggestions anyone?

    Does anyone have a good suggestion for a book on taking digital photographs? I was scanning the few I saw last night at Barnes and Noble, but wasn't sure what would be considered a "good" book. My camera is a Point & Shoot, it's a Kodak C875. We also have a Kodak Z640 which I'm pretty sure is also p&s but it's a higher end version (a step below kodak's performance cameras which would be the equiv to a canon digital rebel)

    Before I woudl get a book on Digital photography I would start with a book covering Photography in General.Once you learn teh basics you can take a phot with any camera.

    Photography by Barbara Upton is a great book to learn all the basics...

    I'm reading Photography by Tom Ang. It has a little of both. It's very good.

    I like The BetterPhoto Guide to Digital Photography by Jim Miotke - he explains digital information with reference to how they used to adjust everything with film. The book wasn't more than ten dollars if I remember correctly. He does keep suggesting you upload pictures to his site (betterphoto.com or something) which is a little annoying, but I guess it worked since I remember the website.
