Hi, yep new here. looking to figure out how to work this new camera i just bought. Its the Sony nex-5r. Obviously I've used digital cams before but just point and shoots. No idea what the Manuel settings are for but that's what I'm here to hopefully learn. If anyone can point me to a beginner/101 wright up it would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome aboard.

1. Read the owner's manual.
2. "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson.
3. Read the owner's manual.
4. Look at a few basic art & design books, paying attention to composition.

edit: And finally, if you haven't already done so, read the owner's manual.
