SONY has a tutorial section in their Online Learning Center. It is a free service and is certainly recommended as a "tireless" solution on how to operate your new SONY DSLR.

If you are interested in a more casual, yet focused perception of using the SONY DSLR ... you are invited to review the link suggestions on this thread, as well as peruse the rest of the forum. A lot of ground has been covered on these pages and it really could fill a book.
Hey ... you might actually learn sumptin'
Here is a useful link, that kind of deals with the "Basics of the Photography"
I guess I tire of people selling books on a 100plus-year-old subject that should be free, by now. This is nothing new ... so get reading and just learn ... for free.
If there are any non-SONY DSLR members reading this ... YES, you can also get something from reading this information. It is generic in nature ... so read up and hopefully you can find something useful to improve your understanding of the subject. Personally, I have always seemed to get a little something more from the materials.
