A friend of mine in Havana Cuba asked me to buy him a copy of Barbra London's Photography. I'm not a photographer, but it looks like much of the book is about film photography. He has a digital camera, so before I take it to him, from where he cannot return it, I wanted to get your take. If you know of the book, do you think it is unsuitable? I understand that the book is used in many beginning photography courses, and it is in its eighth edition. He is also a beginning photographer who wants to photograph interiors. Thank you.

I can't speak for the specific book, but, in general, everything one learns about photography applies equally to film and digital. Techniques and presentation of subject matter are the same. The only major difference is that Depth of Field is, in general, larger with digital cameras due to the smaller sensors that most use. Also, since the White balance can be adjusted in digital cameras, the usual discussions of when to use which film, due to daylight or artificial light, do not apply.
