Don't ask our community of experts for books. Ask our experts for solutions.
Also, this may still be off-topic on Stack Overflow, but you might chat the Programmers SE team on The Whiteboard to see if it would be on-topic there, after some nice, constructive edits, that is! Whatever you do, don't just ask! I'm not an expert on their scope, and this is just a suggestion!
The question you asked is a classic, textbook example of a recommendation question, as well as a poll/list question. In other words, you're not asking our community of experts for a solution. Instead, you're asking our community of experts to provide you with a list of other places to go to find your solution. This is not what Stack Overflow is about.
Think about the last time you Googled a solution and ended up on a forum, with several pages of posts which didn't provide you with the information you needed. Sometimes we get lucky and find the answers we seek buried in the sea of non-answers, but many times we search through pages of data only to be led straight back to the drawing board.
Since your question asks for a list of things, it's not constructive, and will most likely be closed by the community. From Real Questions Have Answers:
Constructive subjective questions:
- inspire answers that explain “why” and “how”.
- tend to have long, not short, answers.
- have a constructive, fair, and impartial tone.
- invite sharing experiences over opinions.
- insist that opinion be backed up with facts and references.
- are more than just mindless social fun.
Also, let's go back to the fact that you're asking our community to build you a list of books. We're the experts. Ask us! Tell us what you're problem is. We're more than happy, and qualified, to help! While your question will probably be closed, you can edit it and improve it, highlighting the real problem that you're trying to solve and focusing on the solution.
Consider these two examples from Q&A is Hard, Let's Go Shopping for guidance on how you can edit your post:
Q: What’s the best low light point-and-shoot camera?
A: Canon S90 and Lumix LX3.
A: No! Pentax is the best, the NX4!
A: I like the Canon Rebel G. It's awesome!
A: Me too! I only use Canons.
NOTE: The last 3 answers were added by me to demonstrate how confusing and unhelpful list/poll questions can be. There's no right answer, and no explanations.
Good Question after Edits:
Q: How do I tell which point-and-shoot cameras take good low light photos?
A: I strongly recommend looking for something with
- a fast lens (2.0 at least)
- reasonable ISO handling (at least 400, but preferably 800)
- the biggest sensor available
The sum of these factors are really critical for low light situations.
This question leads to explanations and guidance on how to come to a solution. This is much more helpful.
