    I read them everyday especially the user guide which is extremely helpful in giving me some ideas on how to shoot properly.

    Yeah.. I read that already. I just want to brush up more on my fundamentals thats why I wanted a book on basic fundamentals as I believe anything you do, basic fundamentals are very important but it is almost always overlooked as beginners tend to jump into the more advanced stuff

    You can try Michael Freeman's books. Available in libraries.

    NLB Library will be most cost effective since u haven't decide on the genre of photography u will be venturing into..

    Thanks for the advice, actually I have been shooting mostly street and macro since my PnS camera days so that will probably stay.

    Anyway I already got the Scott Kelby's Vol 1 -3 and Michael Freeman's Composition and Exposure books. They are a great help to me. Thanks everyone for the recommendation...
