You’ve done it! You finally went out and bought that digital camera you’ve heard so much about and now you’re staring at it, wondering how to make the thing work. It can be a bit intimidating at first. Do you find yourself pondering all those buttons, screens, and dials and scratching your head? Where do you put in the film anyway? It’s OK, though, because you did one thing right. You purchased this book, which places you firmly on the path to shooting digital photographs like a pro. This book was conceived with the novice digital photographer in mind. For that reason, I have kept the language in plain English; where technical terms are used, they include a clear, concise, no-nonsense explanation. The digital camera is complex enough without making you learn a whole new technical language. So rest assured that this book will make your life a bit easier by demystifying the subject as much as possible, making it possible for you to easily grasp this content and make it work for you.
Much of the knowledge in this user-friendly book was gained over my years of hard-knocks experience. The 99 tips herein will help you take control of your camera, compose better photos, and will then launch you into the power of digital editing.
My hope is that you will find this book a helpful companion in introducing you to the tools and techniques that pros use to get dramatic results. The only difference between an amateur and a pro is knowledge and experience. I plan to convey to you the essential knowledge that will make the experience a rewarding one and start you on your way to more accomplished work.

There is no field of enterprise today more dynamic or more challenging than Digital Integrated Circuits. But because of its rapid development, the field has quickly outgrown most of the standard textbooks. The field is also decidedly interdisciplinary. Engineers now must understand materials, physics, devices, processing electromagnetics, computer tools, and economics along with circuits and design rules, but few if any texts take the interdisciplinary approach that best prepares students for their future studies and practice. Author John Ayers designed Digital Integrated Circuits: Analysis and Design to meet three primary objectives: Â· Take an interdisciplinary approach that will stay relevant for years to come Â· Provide broad coverage of the field relevant to students interested in designing integrated circuits and to those aiming towards designing with integrated circuits Â· Focus on the underlying principles rather than the details of current technologies that will soon be obsolete Rich with pedagogical features and supplementary materials, this book appears destined to set a new standard for digital integrated circuits texts. It provides all of the materials you need to offer the best possible course for engineering or computer science students, and it’s clear, systematic presentation and wealth of solved examples build the solid, practical foundation today’s students need. Prerequisites: Students will need an upper-level undergraduate engineering and science background with courses in circuits, electronics, and digital logic.
