Actually, I would say the way to get the most out of it is to learn PHOTOGRAPHY. Read books on photography, read on-line about photography, take a class in photography.

Manuals tell you how to manipulate the camera but they do a very poor job of teaching photography.

To clear up confusion - photobug4741 had made the suggestion that those experiencing problems with the 50d would be well served by reading the manual so they could learn how to properly operate the camera.

Just wanted to give context to the discussion since he has decided to delete his post.

I think you've scared the poor chap off John!

Of course it can't be a bad thing to learn about your camera, but I agree with John that the most important thing is to first learn the fundamentals of photography - which apply to ALL cameras.

Getting worked up over pictures styles is pointless and an unnecessary distraction when you don't know what aperture to choose.
