Hove Foto Books - User Guides
This series of Hove Foto Books User Guides take the camera's manual one step further. Generally more in-depth than the original manual, each book's author is very well versed with the camera in question so you are helped through the use of each of the camera's functions rather than just told what it can do.

Due to the vast rate of change and short life-span of digital models, no books are available for D-SLRs or digital compacts. For D-SLR's See Instructional DVD's Below.

Philip's Guide to Birds of Britain and Europe

An easy-to-use rapid identification guide to more than 500 species, including all the resident and regular migrant birds in the geographical continent of Europe. The region covered extends from Iceland, Ireland and Britain in the west, to the Ural Mountains, Black Sea and Western Turkey in the east.

Philip's Guide to Birds of Britain and Europe is a highly practical field guide in a convenient pocket-sized format, and is organized for maximum ease of use.

The birds are arranged in the now standard sequence of orders and families, starting with waterfowl and ending with passerines (perching birds). Each double-page spread shows a group of related birds illustrated together on a single plate, which facilitates rapid comparison for confident identification. A full-colour illustration is provided for each of the featured species, and includes the indication of important distinguishing features, plus a descriptive text and distribution map.

The text provides concise, detailed information to enable easy identification of the species. Standard data includes common English name, scientific name, size, habitat, plumage, characteristic flight pattern and behaviour, song and call. The illustrations show the adult male of each species in breeding plumage, and in winter plumage if different. Female, immature and juvenile plumages are also shown if their plumage differs from the adult male. Birds often seen in flight are also shown on the wing. The guide excludes the rare vagrants shown in other guides, whose inclusion can cause confusion in the field.
