I wanted to use my camera with all of it's abilities "like a pro". I kept picking up photography books at the library but none of them talked about my Sony- just Cannon and Nikon.
It has pictures and screen shots of the menu and tells you how to use all the functions on the camera. This book is far from just an instruction manual. It tells you, shows you and even gets into the basics of photography. This book stays in my camera bag and get used all the time.
Sony Alpha DSLR-A Digital Field Guide by Alan Hess
I have a hard time remembering all the little settings. If I'm at my sons football game and I want to take some action shots with the telephoto- I just pull out my field guide and push the buttons it tells me to- Boom- Done- Must own if you have this camera especially if you are fairly new to DSLR.

Just a sec...
When I got a used Canon, I got one of David Busch's books for it, and was so impressed with it, I looked to see if there was one for the A I have learned more about my camera reading this book than 4 years of studying the manual. Bush for writing a clear and concise user-friendly guide that has helped me learn more about my camera, and make better pictures.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A200 Digital Field Guide
This book allowed me to get up too speed quickly. The first section gives you all the info you need to get started. Subsequent chapters help hone photographic skills using the A I have had this camera for over 5 years, and yet I learned so much about the potential of it through the book. Easy to use and written for both basic and advanced use, this book does it all! Best reference you can get for cameras.
I learned alot about my camera! It is more than just a book on the a, it also provides an excellent overview of photography in general. Every photographer should have an understanding of how shutter speed, aperture and ISO affect exposure settings.
