What Readers are Saying about
Doug's previous Nikon guides,
A well written, professional helpful guide - Brilliant, just what I was looking for! A manual
that was exciting, clear to follow, had examples and was used by a professional who gave just the right amount of technical
info with explanations of why you use those settings, when to use those settings and so on, all properly explained. The book is a revelation, a joy to follow, well thought through and well written. Nikon should be employing Doug to write every one of their cameras manuals.
For beginners and the more experienced
- This book, with its fun to read and easy to understand instructions, helps both the novice and experienced. It isn't a rehash of the Nikon manual, but explains what each camera function is for and how you might want to set it to
achieve your goal. My photos have improved after reading this book, and I refer to it again as I learn more. It offers an abundance of information and it is too much for me to take in all at one time. I highly recommend this purchase. It is worth every penny and more.
