            Covers a lot of very basic information in the first 10 mins or so but then provides some great useful information for the beginner level users who are familiar with the camera basics and ready to apply in action. Great choice for the money.

            The cover shows a girl playing tennis, yet the narrator does not mention one example of how to shoot tennis. The product has some excellent general photography notes and too few specifics on your favorite sports!
