Default A Good Book to Learn the 300D

I was wondering if you could suggest some books that would be good for learning more about the Rebel. I saw A Short Course in
Canon EOS Digital Rebel Photography, would this be a good book? I am assuming that there is a manual with the Canon Rebel and didn't know how indepth it goes. I would like to learn about more about exposure, lighting, apetures, some of the creative modes, etc. Any suggestions would be wonderful. It might keep me from bugging you guys too much.
Also any websites that might be a good place for me to start would be nice. (I did a web search but there are so many results that it would be nice to get some recommendations. Thanks!)

The Short Course is an excellent source of information specifically on the Rebel. You may want to read further on exposure that is more in general than specifically directed at the Canon. You could read any book on general photography, as most of it translates quite well. I could recommend "Digital Photographer's Handbook" by Tom Ang, any book by John Hedgecoe (may not have the spelling right on that). There are other fine books, but those two come to mind.

Specifically, the manual with the DRebel is modest, at best, but better than nothing. The Short Course will go into greater detail and is a worthwhile purchase, particularly if you're new to SLR photography.

Good luck.

Would you recommend "Short Course..." for someone who's had SLRs for years but has hitherto only had aperture-prio manual focus models and so is runnign fast to catch up with both AutoFocus and the huge range of "modes" on a modern EOS?

Default WWW.PHOTOWORKSHOP.COM

Have you checked out the www.photoworkshop.com? Canon has a nice tutorial with lessons added each month specifically for the Digital Rebel.

Default Book Recommendation

While you specifically asked for Digital Rebel recommendations, I found that "Real World Digital Photography" was extremely helpful transitioning from film to digital.

It's at: http://www.digitalphotobook.net/
