    Comments about Wiley Publications Book: Confessions of a Compact Camera Shooter: Get Professional Quality Photos with Your Compact Camera by Rick Sammon:

    A great little book! – Anyone who's getting "SLR-envy" should read this book to learn what great photos a decent compact camera can take if you understand how to use it and to compensate for it's limitations (especially the low useful ISO and lesser color depth because of the small sensor). The text is clear and easy to read and the photos are down-to earth illustrations of each point. Rick Sammon simply and clearly goes through the useful controls of decent compacts and illustrates their best use to get great images – and he isn't even too proud to encourage use of the program and scene modes.

    As an unexpected bonus he includes possibly the best 30 page summary of how to use the most important features of Photoshop Elements to "fix" many of the shortcomings of compact camera images. Also he discusses and illustrates the use of RAW files, panorama stitching and printing, and gives examples and sources for great plug-in tools like HDR and Topaz Adjust.

    Wish I'd read this book before my last 10,000 compact camera images.
