So i google 'basics for digital SLR camera' and found the website of R J Bradbury, who is an english man (with a Karl Pilkington'esk accent) who has made a series of videos on how to use my camera (Cannon EOS 500D).
They start with the basics and work their way up to the more advanced things you can do with the camera.
I've watched 12 of his video tutorials, and i already know so much more about my camera! I've covered the basics of the camera and all the 'automatic' modes, and i'm working my way to learning how to use the 'manual' modes.
I am so glad to finally be able to use some more of the great features on my camera, and i am already seeing an improvement in the quality of photos i am able to take.
