Why use a PhotoBert camera CheatSheet?
If you're like most photographers, you like to carry your camera manual with you. But, what good is a confusing 200 page manual when you need to quickly know how to set the White Balance! And your manual will probably be ruined from use before long. PhotoBert CheatSheets are small, concise, durable and easy to understand and they are designed for YOUR camera. PhotoBert CheatSheets also help you get up to speed on your new equipment quickly.

What's on PhotoBert CheatSheet?
Depending on the CheatSheet - whether it's for a digital camera, flash, film camera, etc. - there is varying information contained on it. CheatSheets typically contain most of the information you'll need when taking pictures - most of what's in the manual is usually on the CheatSheet plus there's tips for using your camera's features. And unlike the manual, PhotoBert CheatSheets are written in easy-to-understand language.
