This book has been the recommended photography course textbook for as long as I can remember. It's not for those who like lots of big colourful pics but more a theory guide to all aspects of photography. Now in the 7th edition Langford has upgraded it to include digital. As most upgrades go it's covered digital quite well, but still does the same as most in providing a less technical roundup of the digital aspects. The depth of knowledge for film based is astounding yet digital isn't covered in such depth. I guess most courses that suggest this book don't cover digital in the same detail either. Still if you want to know anything about exposure, how lenses work and processing you'll find it in here. And the key to learning are the highly motivational practical assignments/projects found at the end of each of the 15 chapters.
